THE TOP!

Steinberg MR816 XPublished on 07/20/13 at 06:53
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Taking to his studio Pro
Very good quality preamp Rate!
Very good level of output and dynamic
Has nothing to envy to RME;
This card gives more than it costs.
Clearly behind Yamaha and Steinberg finance.
Zero latency = more effect tubing. very appreciable.
The DSP reverb is good but I have other Waves and UAD effects that make the X enough.
I compressors and equalizers next.

UTILIZATION

Super stable drivers
Firewire provides a good level of output
I recommend a Firewire PCI card with Texas Instruments chipset (found on ebay for qq euros) to ensure stability in any ordeal

GETTING STARTED

Installation carefree in 5 minutes
bypass with Cubase 5,6,7 very pleasant....…

one approaches the harware is the harware.

OVERALL OPINION

Previous maps: Echo, Tascam, RME.
I remake that choice just for the sound quality: dynamic, highly detailed, with a warm vintage side.
Top. I keep.

Cubase 6.5 / Wavelab 7

How many tracks do you manage to record / play simultaneously?
Never tried more than forty tracks with plug about 4 per track.

What you get lag?
3 or 4 ms recording (without plugins in to out) at least not perceptible by the musicians.

GETTING STARTED

The installation is done it without problem?
Cubase yes, fortunately.

Have you encountered any incompatibilities?
not

The general configuration is easy?
Automatically recognized in Cubase, for the allocation of physical inputs to the tracks, just select a track and pressing the entrance you want to assign. That's cool!
Against by the virtual console is quite minimalist, for example something that I regret: using the control room of Cubase you can assign software outputs to physical outputs for supplying the headphone amplifier musicians, well, no way to use the two headphone outputs of the MR (or so I have not found). They may not be copied in qu'utilisées physical outputs. It's too bad especially since I could do with my Motu.

OVERALL OPINION

How long you use it?
7 months.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
+ Quality preamps
+ The 8 mic
+ Low latency
The price +
+ Ease of use with Cubase

- Ergonomics of the console and the lack of possibility of routings
- A single ADAT port and suddenly no ability to record 96kHz ADAT 8

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
Motu 828 MKII and 2408 and 8pre

How would you rate the quality / price?
Good

With experience, you do again this choice?
Why not.
