Cascade 2 MR 816 X (direct monitoring)

Post by Redolasido » Wed Aug 03, 2016 1:44 am

Hello. I have try to cascade 2 MR 816 X with the standard method with a firewire between the 2 units. I have found in Cubase 8.5 that the direct monitoring work with MR-816 X (1) connected on the computer port but the MR-816 X (2) don't work with direct monitoring. I can record, play, but i can't monitor the signal directly. Any solutions ?

I have Windows 7 64 bit with Cubase 8.5 and the latest MR-816 drivers.

For inputs on the second unit use an output on the second unit. If you want one stereo output than mix outputs from both units on a separate mixer.

Hello Mozizo,

If direct monitoring for the 2nd MR816 unit requires an ADAT connection, is there a need to remove the FW connection? I would like to leave both FW and ADAT connections intact and toggle via Cubase between direct monitoring and utilising features of the tight software/hardware integration of Cubase & MR816. :P

Thanks.

Mike
