Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver version 2.0.4 for Windows 10 64-bit released

Hello!

We are pleased to announce the release of a new version of the Yamaha Steinberg USB driver for Windows 10 64-bit.
Please note that older Windows releases are not supported anymore. Version 2.0.3 will remain the latest version for Windows 7 and Windows 8!

For detailed information, we ask you to refer to the corresponding version history on the download page.

i don’t see anything in the release notes about you fixing the drop outs in this driver. Why is that?

I will probably jinx myself by saying this but I haven’t had a single drop out in at least six months (currently with 2.0.3). Sort of reluctant to update, to be honest, but will give 2.0.4 a try.

I thought they had been resolved but found errors again yesterday.

Problems started roughly at the same time as the Windows 10 spring 2019 update.

18 months later and Steinberg have still not fixed it. Is is unbelievable and outrageous. They are stealing a living. How dare they?

Agree with you, it is not legal to sell a product that does not work properly.

I am very sorry about the drop-out issues you experience. If none of the troubleshooting tips we’ve shared helped, and nothing in this article (https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-us/articles/360008589880-Windows-10-How-to-set-up-and-optimize-a-Digital-Audio-Workstation-DAW-) improved the situation, then it could be that the system and the interface are simply not compatible. The UR interfaces do work properly on most systems but as with any other hardware/driver and system out there, incompatibilities can happen unfortunately.

Ed, I’d like to say thank you for first of all acknowledging the problem and secondly for your apology.

That is appreciated, and as the saying goes the first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem!

The advice to sanitise a PC as a dedicated DAW is however not particularly helpful to most of us. Unless you are running a full studio this is simply not practical, but in that case you are more likely to have a high end RME or other audio interface.

Objectively Steinberg’s audio interfaces are far more likely to be in home studios, where users do not have the luxury or a dedicated machine and/or need the flexibility and convenience of having other stuff running. That is certainly the case for me, and a requirement to run nothing else would absolutely be a deal breaker.

My personal experience is that the drop outs occur when there is significant hard disk activity saving files while the interface is capturing. I’m no expert but my sense is it must be related to the driver somehow being interrupted by that disk activity. If that gives you any idea please try to fix this, because otherwise my UR44 is an excellent interface, that is unfortunately badly let down by this issue.

Many thanks and Happy Christmas!
