Steinberg are presenting a technical preview of two new FireWire I/O DSP studios: MR816 CSX and MR816 X.
Designed by Steinberg and Yamaha, both units feature unprecedented integration into Cubase, and offer a full range of audio I/O options and onboard DSP with the renowned REV-X reverb. MR816 CSX also offers the acclaimed Sweet Sport Morphing Channel Strip plug-in, with both DSP effects available as a VST3 plug-in in Cubase. The new units will support Mac OS X, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Helge Vogt, Steinbergâ€™s Product Marketing Manager for Cubase, told us, â€œThese qualitatively outstanding units represent a departure from the traditional relationship between hardware and software. Fusing directly into Cubase at core level, the new units combine with Steinbergâ€™s renowned Music Production System to offer a complete production solution comprising a first-class software DAW, outstanding FireWire I/O and high-quality DSP FX. The beauty of this system is that all these aspects of functionality are unified, so all aspects are controlled from within Cubase. This allows an extremely efficient and ergonomic workflow that we believe will set new standards.â€�
