Hi, could someone please put me out of my UR816C misery?
I’ve just bought this new interface to replace my MR816 and I’m using it with Cubase 10.5 under MacOS Catalina. My problem is that I can’t seem to configure the set-up properly. Either that or the Yamaha USB driver 2.0.3 (and 2.0.2 which I’ve also tried) doesn’t work as I’d expect. I have installed Tools for UR-C as instructed and the driver shows up as expected in the Audio-Midi Set-up window.
In Cubase I can either get the Hardware Rack to appear in the Mix Console but I can’t open/expand it (a “not allowed” symbol comes up) OR I get no Hardware Rack appearing at all despite there being an audio track present using the UR816C. The outcome seems to depend upon which project I load. Either way, there is no usable Hardware Rack in the Mix Console.
As a result I can only record incoming audio data with the UR816C FX effects “in line”. In other words I am recording a “wet” signal whereas I wish to record the signal dry and use the Hardware Rack to adjust the recorded sound going into the mix. Looking at YouTube videos I know this can be done, but with no expanding Hardware Rack, I can’t do it.
I’ve also tried the Steinberg-suggested workaround of selecting starting up as normal, selecting No Driver and then selecting the UR816C driver - no joy there.
Any ideas, please?
