Description

The MR816 X from Steinberg is a FireWire digital audio interface that is the result of the combined experience of Yamaha's hardware expertise along with Steinberg's software knowledge. The interface features 16 inputs (8 analog, 8 digital) and 16 outputs along with built-in DSP.

However, the pedestrian nature of the above details is exceptionally enhanced by the direct integration of the hardware with the included Steinberg Cubase AI4 software. It is no longer necessary to have a control panel or other mixer routing software sitting between the interface and the software, as is the case with most other hardware interfaces.

DSP inside the MR816 X allows a single instance of Yamaha's REV-X reverb to be used, the same reverb that can be found on the company's high-end digital mixing consoles.

The combination of integrated hardware with DSP and the software provides a latency-free recording and monitoring environment that fully exploits the flexibility and power of Steinberg's music production software. Of course the interface can be used with other manufacturer's software, but in that case the supplied MR Editor needs to be utilized. This same software allows the interface to function standalone.
