I recently purchased a Steinberg UR824 to replace my Focusrite Scarlett 18i20, as the latter was causing my computer to crash.
The Steinberg has solved the crashing issue, but I now am really struggling to set up the multiple separate headphone mixes I was previously using with the Scarlett. I am able to send Mix 1 to the monitor speakers (via line outputs 1 & 2 on the rear of the UR824) but can’t seem to utilise the other line outputs (i.e. 3 & 4, 5 & 6, 7 & 8) unless I re-route Mix 1 (which means losing audio from the monitor speakers).
What I would like to do is (for example) send line outputs 3 & 4 into the live room, to give the talent his/her headphone mix, whilst I am still able to listen to my own mix in the control room on the monitor speakers. Also, if there is more than one musician, I would like to be able to send them separate headphone mixes using line outputs 3 & 4, 5 & 6 and 7 & 8, whilst maintaining my own mix via line outputs 1 & 2.
I am running a Windows 7 PC and Cubase AI4. I’ve done some research and keep seeing Cubase’s “Control Room” being mentioned in relation to monitoring set ups - this appears to only be including in the full Cubase Pro 9 software (£468). Must admit I am reluctant to spend this money, particularly as I don’t know whether Control Room would actually solve the problem.
Hope someone can help!
