I have been pulling my hair out over my MR816csx w/cubase 7. I have more than occasional dropouts/stutter in audio while using interface in recording and playback. when I switch to my Motu express and the issue stops.
I would use the express as main interface but it has only 2 mic pre on it and no optical interface…
- I have updated MR816 to latest driver and no change.
- I have tried legacy firewire driver
- I have tried the 1394 on my board ( Gigabyte EX58-UD4P ) and also a Texas Instruments 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller with 2 inputs using both Texas Instrument and Legacy drivers
- I have updated to Cubase 7.02 hoping this would cure issue
If it is driver I will move on to another interface manufacturer but if its something that can be fixed I would like to. I live in Nashville TN USA and I have no idea where there is support or if steinberg/yamaha offers a mail in service similar to Motu where they charge a set fee to repair/inspect devices. I do love Motu for that, they fixed an 8pre for me a while ago for flat rate of $90.00 and I had it back in less than 2 weeks
If you read my profile you will see my equipment used, sessions have mostly use with UAD Plugs and Vienna Instruments VSTi and again all works w/Motu device.
Thanks for any ideas
