Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the ADVANCED INTEGRATION DSP STUDIO MR816 CSX/MR816 X. This comprehensive audio interface allows you to transfer the sound of your instruments (keyboards, guitars, microphones) to the DAW software (such as
Cubase) on your computer, as well as process and monitor the DAW sound—all through a single IEEE1394 cable. Moreover, the
sophisticated Link function provides seamless operation and convenient studio-like monitoring options. The MR816 CSX/
MR816 X comes with two manuals: “Getting Started” (printed booklet) and “Operation Manual” (this PDF document). The Getting Started manual provides basic instructions on setting up, installing required software, making connections, recording to
your computer and so on. This Operation Manual is a comprehensive, detailed guide to the functions and features of the
device. Please read the Getting Started manual first, followed by this manual, in order to get the most out of the device and
enjoy trouble-free operation for years to come.
Main Features
Link with Cubase
Install the included software and you can link the MR816 CSX/MR816 X with Cubase for seamless operation–for example,
monitoring the Cubase-mixed sound with no latency, and one-button-press assignment of audio inputs to Cubase tracks.
Flagship model of Cubase can also use the convenient Control Room feature with the MR816. For details about the Link
function, refer to page 9.
High-quality sound
The MR816 CSX/MR816 X is equipped with eight discrete head amplifiers using the Inverted Darlington Circuitry Design, for
superior, highly musical sound with minimal distortion and noise.
Mixer function and useful monitoring
The mixer function (with DSP processor) lets you input up to sixteen channels of audio and mix down to eight channels of
stereo. Two of these stereo outputs can be assigned for separate monitoring through headphones connected to the PHONE
jacks on the front panel. What’s more, the monitor sound can be processed with the REV-X reverb effect, allowing you to
have a full and natural monitor sound without latency delays.
Versatile input/output jacks for professional studio use
The MR816 CSX/MR816 X is equipped with eight mono input jacks (MIC/LINE/HI-Z jack and MIC/LINE jack on the front
panel and MIC/LINE/INPUT jacks on the rear panel) which accept both XLR-3-31 and TRS phone plug type connectors. In
addition, each of these jacks provides a [PAD] button which enables connection of a wide range of instruments and
devices-from condenser microphones to synthesizers and other line-level instruments.
The MIC/LINE/HI-Z jack is compatible with HI-Z (high impedance) inputs, allowing you to connect instruments with high output impedance, such as electric guitar or bass. The MIC/LINE/HI-Z jack and MIC/LINE jack are routed to the INSERT I/O
jacks on the rear panel, letting you apply a desired effect (different from the internal one) to the sound already input from the
external device. Furthermore, the WCL (Word Clock) jack and the digital jacks are also provided for comprehensive compatibility with devices and applications in professional studios.
REV-X effect
The MR816 CSX/MR816 X is equipped with the REV-X Effect, a high-quality digital reverb effect unit which can be applied to
all input channels. When connecting the MR816 CSX/MR816 X to a computer, this reverb can be applied to the input signal
coming from the DAW software as well as the sound from audio equipment such as keyboards, guitars and microphones. In
addition, a dedicated window lets you create more detailed settings for this effect unit.
Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip effect (MR816 CSX only)
The MR816 CSX is equipped with eight independent blocks of the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip effect using the new
Sweet Spot Morphing Technology developed by Yamaha. These give you a variety of specially programmed compressor/
equalizer settings into which are distilled years of extensive professional engineering experience, letting you quickly and
easily achieve professional-level results for your sound by simple panel operations. When connecting the MR816 CSX to a
computer, this effect can be applied to the audio signal transferred/recorded to the DAW software (such as Cubase) as well
as the sound from audio equipment such as keyboards, guitars and microphones. In addition, a dedicated window lets you
create more detailed settings for this effect unit.
Daisy-chain connection of up to three devices
Up to three MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs (two devices when the Sample Rate is set to 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz) can be connected in
daisy-chain fashion. You can expand the input/output channels simply by connecting the MR816 CSX/MR816 X additionally
to the existing device via an IEEE1394 cable.

6 [+48V] button (Phantom power button)
9 Word Clock Source Lamps
This button enables you to toggle on and off phantom
power, which is necessary for condenser microphones.
By holding this button and pressing one of the [QUICK
CONNECT] buttons 1 – 8, you can apply phantom power
to the analog input jack corresponding to the pressed button. Performing the same operation removes phantom
power. The [+48V] button is turned on when phantom
power is applied to one or more of the input jacks, while
the [+48V] button will be turned off when phantom power
is off for all the input jacks. Holding this button will turn on
the [QUICK CONNECT] lamp(s) corresponding to the
channel number(s) to which phantom power is applied.
These lamps indicate the word clock source which has
been set on Cubase, MR Editor or the Control Panel of the
Yamaha FW Driver window (page 30) of a connected
computer. When the INTERNAL lamp lights, the internal
word clock of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X is used as the
word clock “master.” When any of the other lamps are lit,
an external word clock is used as the master (the
MR816 CSX/MR816 X is the word clock “slave”). For information about word clock, refer to “Word Clock” in the next
page.
WCLK
When this lamp lights, the word clock input
from the external audio device via the WCLK
IN jack will be used as the clock source.
S/PDIF
When this lamp lights, the word clock input
from the external audio device via the S/PDIF
IN jack will be used as the clock source.
ADAT
When this lamp lights, the word clock input
from the external audio device via the OPTICAL IN jack will be used as the clock source.
INTERNAL
When this lamp lights, the internal word clock
will be used as the clock source.
CAUTION
• To avoid damage to your hearing or speakers, be sure to roll
off the volume level of the amplifier (or powered speakers)
before turning phantom power on or off. Steinberg/Yamaha
also recommends that you turn all output levels to minimum
settings before operating this button.
• Be sure to leave the phantom power off if you do not need it.
• When turning phantom power on, make sure that only condenser microphones are connected to the corresponding
input jacks. Devices other than condenser microphones
may be damaged if they are connected to the phantom
power supply. Note, however, that phantom power may be
left on when you connect balanced dynamic microphones.
• If you connect a device that requires an external power supply, first connect the device to an Input jack, then turn on the
phantom power. If you disconnect the device, make sure to
turn off the phantom power before disconnecting the device.
7 [PAD] button
This switch toggles the Pad on and off. Holding this button
and simultaneously pressing one of the [QUICK CONNECT] buttons lets you toggle the Pad of the corresponding input jack on and off.
The audio input signal from an input jack for which Pad is
turned on is attenuated by 26 dB. Therefore, you should
turn Pad off if you have connected equipment of low output level (a microphone or other mic-level device), while
Pad should be on for equipment of high output level (a
synthesizer keyboard, CD player, etc.).
This button will be turned on when the Pad of one or more
input jacks is turned on, and will be turned off when Pad is
off for all input jacks.
Holding this button will turn on the [QUICK CONNECT]
lamp(s) corresponding to the channel number(s) for
which Pad is turned on.

Operation Manual
TIP
Word Clock
In a typical digital audio system, the signal referred to
as “word clock” is used to synchronize the process timing of audio signals between the multiple devices.
When transferring audio data between the master
recorder and the MR816 CSX/MR816 X via the S/PDIF
jacks or OPTICAL jacks, the MR816 CSX/MR816 X will
handle the audio data according to the word clock
transmitted from the master recorder. If the word clock is
not transferred correctly, click noise may occur or
recording may not be successful. Normally, one device
transmits a reference word clock signal, and the other
devices receive this word clock signal and synchronize
to it. The transmitting device is called the “word clock
master” and the receiving devices are called “word
clock slaves.” On the MR816 CSX/MR816 X, the word
clock can be transferred via either the WCLK (Word
Clock) jack, the S/PDIF jack or the OPTICAL jack.
Because some digital equipment can operate only as
the word clock master or slave, you may need to set the
word clock source on the MR816 CSX/MR816 X. If such
a device is connected to the MR816 CSX, make sure to
set the Word Clock Source parameter on the Control
Panel of Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver or the MR Editor
on the computer.
When using the MR816 CSX/MR816 X as the word clock
master, set the Word Clock Source parameter to
“INTERNAL.” When using the MR816 CSX/MR816 X as
the word clock slave, set the Word Clock Source parameter to “ADAT” or “S/PDIF” or “WCLK In” then set the
Sample Rate to the same value as that of the master
device.

them to connect a computer, and the other jack for
another MR816 CSX/MR816 X (or a device compatible
with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver) for daisy-chain
connection. If your computer has a 4-pin IEEE1394 jack,
use a 4-pin to 6-pin type IEEE1394 cable that meets the
S400 specifications.
7 MIC/LINE INPUT jacks 3 – 8 (Analog input jacks 3 – 8)
These mono channel input jacks (XLR/TRS phone) that
support both balanced and unbalanced signals are used
to connect microphones or musical instruments. The nominal signal level is -60dBu – +10dBu. Connector wiring is
as shown in the (2) section on page 4.
8 INSERT I/O jacks 1 and 2

Internal Structure of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X
Internal Structure of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X
The MR816 CSX/MR816 X is equipped with a digital mixer supported by DSP technology. This mixer lets you adjust various
parameters, including volume and pan of the input signals for each output channel consisting of adjacent odd and even channels. Each stereo mix of the sound created with this operation will be output from the four analog outputs (OUTPUT jacks 1&2,
3&4, 5&6 and 7&8), the OPTICAL OUT jack and the S/PDIF OUT jack. If “ADAT” is selected as the output format of the digital
audio, up to eight stereo outputs are available, including both analog and digital.
By creating a mix for the main output and a separate monitor mix for your musicians, for example, you can easily create a comprehensive, flexible monitoring environment – with no latency – for your recording session. Furthermore, using flagship model of
Cubase lets you connect the Control Room function (of Cubase) and the internal mixer (of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X) seamlessly, giving you a versatile monitoring environment.
When the MR816 CSX/MR816 X is connected to your computer, the signals coming to the input channel of the internal mixer will
be transferred to the DAW on the computer, returned from the DAW, mixed with other signals in the internal mixer then transferred to the corresponding output channel, as illustrated below.

the audio track to which the input channel is assigned will cause the corresponding lamp to flash, allowing you to confirm
the routing status easily. For detailed instructions refer to page 13.
● Monitor Mix linked with the Control Room function (only for Cubase)
When you use flagship model of Cubase, the Control Room function can be linked with the MR816 CSX/MR816 X, allowing
you to mix the monitor sound. The sound for recording musicians as well as the main mix sound can be heard without
latency since Cubase is directly linked to the internal mixer of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X. For details, refer to page 14.
● Controlling mixing parameters by using dedicated windows in Cubase
Dedicated windows specially designed for the MR816 CSX/MR816 X let you control the internal mixer and effects from
Cubase. The settings made in Cubase can be saved as a project file, letting you quickly recall the entire settings made in
the previous session. For details about the dedicated windows, refer to page 21.
● Controlling the REV-X effect for monitoring purposes
The REV-X effect unit (built both in the MR816 CSX and MR816 X) can be controlled easily from Cubase. While this effect
can be used normally as a Send Effect, it can also be used as a plug-in effect by setting the MR816 CSX/MR816 X to the
external effect mode. For details, refer to page 25.
● Controlling the Channel Strip (MR816 CSX only)
The built-in Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip (MR816 CSX only) can be controlled from Cubase. This effect is normally
applied to the Input Channels as an Insertion Effect, though it can also be used as a plug-in effect by setting the MR816
CSX to the external effect mode. For details, refer to page 27.

■ Setting up for recording
Setting up an Audio Track
In the Project created via the project template for the
MR816 CSX/MR816 X, the input bus corresponding to the
analog input jack of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X is assigned
to the input source of each audio track. This means that
you can simply open the desired Project template and
immediately be ready to record. If you want to change the
input source of the audio track, simply use the [QUICK
CONNECT] button to change the routing between the
analog input jack and audio track.
The instructions below show how to assign the signal of
analog input jack 4 to audio track 1, using an example in
which “Steinberg MR816CSX multi channel recording” or
“Steinberg MR816X multi channel recording” is selected
as a Project template. This operation described below
basically applies also when selecting other audio tracks.

Automatic routing of the audio track via the [QUICK
CONNECT] button
Pressing any of the [QUICK CONNECT] buttons with a
certain audio track(s) selected will assign the audio signal of the corresponding input jack to the selected
audio track(s) through the VST input bus. When the VST
input bus is not set, the input bus will be created and
assigned to the selected audio track automatically by
pressing the [QUICK CONNECT] button. If you press
one of the [QUICK CONNECT] buttons when the corresponding audio signal is specified to multiple buses, the
bus created at the top line of the VST Connections window (called up via [Devices] ➝ [VST Connections]) will
be assigned to the selected track(s).
When you want to change the assignment of the
input signal within a Project, select the desired
audio track.
If you select an audio track already assigned to one
of the analog input jacks, the lamp of the corresponding number will flash for a while instead of
being lit continuously. In the setting example above,
the [QUICK CONNECT] lamp 1 will flash.

REV-X
The REV-X effect built into the MR816 CSX/MR816 X is a complex reverb algorithm developed by Yamaha. It provides a
high-density, richly reverberant sound quality, with smooth attenuation, spread and depth that work together to enhance the
original sound. The MR816 CSX/MR816 X features three types of REV-X effects: Hall, Room and Plate of which the related
parameters can be controlled from Cubase.
The settings related to effects will be saved as a Project file of Cubase. This means that you can recall the previously-made

Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip (MR816 CSX only)
This effect has been developed by using Yamaha’s Sweet Spot Morphing Technology. This technology lets you simply rotate
the knob to adjust compressor and equalizer effects and easily call up appropriate, professional-level settings that would
otherwise be difficult for recording novices to discover. As illustrated below, the entire system consists of a compressor (with
the side chain filter) and a 3-band equalizer, which is applied to 8 mono input channels (4 stereo input channels) of the
MR816 CSX. The parameters for this effect can be adjusted from a dedicated window.

Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip
The MR816 CSX provides various preset settings of the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip as “Sweet Spot data” specially
created by top-class engineers. You can find the desired or professional-level sound by selecting the Sweet Spot data then
rotating the DRIVE knob and MORPH knob at the center bottom of the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip window-instead
of having to adjust each of the parameters. Each Sweet Spot data contains several settings for the compressor and equalizer. The setting is changed gradually between them by rotating the MORPH knob, instantly and automatically changing all
the related parameters according to the knob rotation. Of course, you can also adjust each of the parameters including the
DRIVE knob for controlling the compressor. The effect related settings will be saved as a Project file of Cubase. This means
that you can recall the effect related settings as soon as you open the Project file the next time. All the effect parameters can
be adjusted from a dedicated window within Cubase.

About window
NOTE
· If audio signals that cannot be synchronized with the Word
Clock Source are sent to the MR816 CSX/MR816 X, the Word
Clock Source lamps flash. In this state, make sure to send
appropriate audio signals to the jack specified as the Word
Clock Source. Alternately, change the Word Clock Source to a
different value so that synchronization is possible.
· When the “Digital I/O, External FX” parameter is set to “S/PDIF
(opt) + S/PDIF (coax)” and the “Clock Source” (page 31)
parameter is set to “S/PDIF (opt)” or “S/PDIF (coax),” sending
audio signals that cannot be synchronized (such as different
data format or unstable sample rate) to the jack specified as
the Word Clock Source results in both the OPTICAL IN jack and
S/PDIF IN jack being unable to accept any audio signals.
· When the “Digital I/O, External FX” (page 31) parameter is set
to “External FX,” the “Clock Source” (page 31) parameter can
be set to only “Internal” or “WCLK In.” If the “Clock Source”
(page 31) parameter has been set to something other than

MR Editor
MR Editor
The included MR Editor (see the “Getting Started” printed manual) gives you versatile tools for mixing the audio signal
inputs of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X.
IMPORTANT
The MR Editor is used when you use a DAW other than Cubase or you want to set the necessary settings for using the
MR816 CSX/MR816 X without connecting a computer. Note that Cubase and the MR Editor cannot be active simultaneously
because Cubase controls the mixing parameters of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X.
On the MR Editor, the mixing operation for each output can be performed by selecting the output at the right end in the main
window then setting the parameters such as volume and pan for each of 16 input channels in the Mixer section. For monitoring the mixed sound, up to two outputs can be heard from the headphone jacks 1 and 2 simply by clicking the headphone
icon (page 14) after selecting the desired output.
The settings made on the MR Editor will be stored (overwritten) to internal memory in the MR816 CSX/MR816 X automatically by executing the Scene Store operation, and will be maintained even if the power is turned off. Turning the power on
the next time will transfer the settings on the MR816 CSX/MR816 X to the MR Editor on the computer automatically. Even
when two or three MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs are connected to the computer in daisy-chain fashion, the MR Editor can control
them individually.
The MR Editor can be called up via the following operations.
Windows:
· Select [Start] ➝ [All Programs] ➝ [Steinberg MR] ➝ [MR Editor]
· From the driver icon indicated on the Taskbar Notification area, right-click this icon then select “MR Editor.”
Mac:
· [Applications] ➝ Double-click [MREditor]
The MR Editor consists of the Main window and Setup window. The explanations below cover the functions of these windows.
■ Main window
The Main window lets you adjust various parameters such as mixing and internal effects (REV-X and Sweet Spot Morphing
Channel Strip) related parameters for the input signal from the external audio device and computer. The input signals mixed
with the controls in the center of the window are output from the output channels specified at the right of the window. Note
that the External Effect mode is available when using the MR Editor as well as Cubase. You can set the MR816 CSX/
MR816 X to the External Effect on the MR Editor.
To close the MR Editor window, click the [X] button at the top left corner.

Using a DAW other than Cubase
Using a DAW other than Cubase
When using a DAW software other than Cubase, you can use the MR816 CSX/MR816 X simply as an audio interface having
up to 16 input/output channels. Link-related functions such as quickly routing the input channel to an audio track of Cubase
(page 9) are not available, but the following additional functions are available with the use of the MR Editor.
● Producing monitor mixed sound
The MR Editor lets you produce the mixed sound for monitoring, and it can be heard with no latency.
● Using the effects built into the MR816 CSX/MR816 X
You can process audio signals of the DAW with the built-in effects on the MR816 CSX/MR816 X by setting the MR816 CSX/
MR816 X to the External Effect mode and making the settings for the bus and channels for input/output audio signals on the
DAW manually.
NOTE
· The settings made on the MR Editor need to be managed separately from the DAW file. If you want to manage the music data and
MR816 CSX/MR816 X related settings as a single package of data or you want to take a full advantage of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X, we
recommend that you use Cubase.

Operation Manual
Using multiple MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs
Using multiple MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs
Up to three MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs can be used simultaneously by connecting them in daisy-chain fashion to a
computer via IEEE1394 cables. You can upgrade your
music production system and add more audio input/output channels simply by adding another MR816 CSX/
MR816 X.
Even when multiple MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs are connected, you can set parameters such as those for digital
audio input/output, Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip
and REV-X for each device individually.
IEEE1394 terminal
When multiple devices are daisy-chain connected to a
computer, a unique number (indicated at the end of the
device name) is automatically assigned to each of the
devices, in the order with which the devices are connected. The number once assigned to a device will be
maintained even if it is disconnected or the power is
turned off. If you want to reset this number assignment,
follow the instructions below.

Turn off the power of all the connected
MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs then disconnect all the
IEEE1394 cables.
Call up the Control Panel of the Yamaha FW
Driver window then click the [General] tab.
NOTE
· Keep in mind that up to two MR816 CSX/MR816 Xs can be
connected when the Sample Rate is set to 88.2kHz or 96kHz.
Even if you connect an additional third device, the last recognized device (other than the device specified as the Word
Clock master) connected to the computer will not be available.
· Even if multiple IEEE1394 interfaces are installed on the computer, make sure to daisy-chain connect all devices to the jacks
of a single interface. This is necessary since the computer can
only recognize devices connected to a specific, single
IEEE1394 interface jack, and cannot recognize devices connected to different jacks of different IEEE1394 interfaces even
though they are installed on the same computer.
· In addition to the MR816 CSX/MR816 X, another audio interface compatible with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver can be
connected to an already connected device via an IEEE1394
cable. For information about devices compatible with the
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver, refer to the following URL:
