Hi, I want to upgrade my studio with more i/o. Buying two MR816 CSX seems to be a perfect match budget and sound.
Now I read the thread about monitoring problems and got a little worried. I need to be able to record 16 tracks simultaneously in Cubase while hearing everything. At the same time I need to make at least one headphone mix for the musicians. I also don’t want to work at low buffers. I want the audio interfaces to deliver close to zero latency like I am used to from Metric Halo and MOTU. Is this possible using two MR 816 CSX?
I really wish the MOTU boxes sounded a little better. The CueMix software is very nice
Hi there. I have exactly same problem with two MR units as I wanted to try the ADAT link up instead on firewire to take advantage od DM on all inputs. So. I have taken your advice and connected ADAT in/outs between the two units. Device manager set to Clock internal (correct?) and MR unit set to ‘ADAT’ in the MR control panel.
Now the problem exists where my listening levels in the control room have no relevance. e.g. ‘cue 1’ levels seem to be same as ‘mix’? And the other ‘cues’ dont seem to work at all, and I have ensured they are enabled etc.
I was able to work it all out today. It’s not true that you lose 2 channels for L/R SPDIF. I have all 32 I/Os with my two 8 channel interfaces and Cubase recognizes all of them. One master and the other slave. Only the master is connected via Firewire. The slave is clocked via ADAT.
