STEINBERG MR816 CSX DSP DRIVER
Steinberg MR CSX review MusicRadar
Skip the CSX model and go for the X! I bought this unit after reading online comparitive reviews with more expensive units like apogee rosetta, lavry blue, etc.
The unit is solidly built, with the exception of the 2 master rotary knobs which are plastic, and feel cheap. Installation was fairly straight forward running on Win 7 x64though I did have to download a new version of MR Tools in order to get it running. Sound quality is good.
The converters are clear and smooth. The preamps are good also - they really shine on vocals and acoustic guitar. We tried running a Marshal JMP1 into this though, and it didn't sound that great.
My only real gripe is with the Rev-X and Compressor - you can only run 1 instance of Rev-X reverb at a time, making the onboard DSP processing somewhat less useful. I'd say this unit will match any pro-tools rig in Steinberg MR816 CSX DSP of sound quality, but for a fraction of the price. I would certainly buy this item again if this one broke, although I'd save some money and go for the X model only, and just use a good reverb and compressor plugin, where you not limited to a certain number.
Wisely, Steinberg has chosen to combine DSP-fuelled audio interfacing with extensive software-linking to Cubase version 4. Overview Strip away all the Cubase integration-related extras and the MR looks much like any quality FireWire interface.
There's a full complement of eight class-A mic preamps using Yamaha's D-Pre designand the first two channels also include instrument inputs and unbalanced pre-conversion insert points. Other connections include word clock in and out, twin FireWire you can daisy chain up to three units and two Steinberg MR816 CSX DSP headphone outs on the front panel. Surprisingly, there are no MIDI connections.
The front panel offers a gain knob, an LED level indicator, and 26dB pad and phantom power switches for each mic pre. For the non-Cubase user, the MR is operated much like any other audio interface.
It's worth noting that it retains its routing settings when you shut down, and that you can use it without a computer, as a converter or basic mixer "Unfortunately, since Steinberg's own Cubase and Nuendo are currently the only DAWs to cater for VST3, you won't actually be able to use the effects in other Steinberg MR816 CSX DSP Features include near-zero latency routing and monitoring, and CoreAudio Mac and ASIO PC drivers. You can use the two front-panel encoders to access phones levels, master level, Morph and REV-X settings. Here, certain instance limits apply, the options being: Cubase compatibility We suspect that the vast majority of MR buyers will be Cubase users, and if you're using a version with Advanced Integration 4.
This opens up some great new features, and in case you don't already have Cubase, there's a version in the box. As well as the routing and mixing options, the DSP effects are accessible directly from Cubase.

The Channel Strip can be used to effect the input signal or Steinberg MR816 CSX DSP for monitoring, whereas in this mode the reverb is for monitoring only. The only real catch is, you can't do both at the same time. The MR CSX and MR X fuse fully featured FireWire interfaces and inbuilt DSP FX power with next-generation integrative technologies. Developed by Steinberg and Yamaha, both MR interfaces are the centerpiece of a latency-free recording and monitoring environment that fully. Jump to DSP Effects - The mouthful that is the 'Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip' (MR CSX only) consists of a compressor with side–chain filter.
