storing the settings as a Scene or recalling the Scene on the MR Editor. Also,
you can save 20 Scenes as an Editor file to the computer. If you use the MR816
CSX/MR816 X with Cubase, you cannot store the settings to internal memory of
the MR816 CSX/MR816 X. Save the settings as a project file to the computer.
You should also save your Project files or Editor files onto external media as
backup to avoid the loss of important data due to equipment malfunction or
improper operation.
• If you want to store the settings edited on the MR816 CSX/MR816 X without a
computer, launch the MR Editor with the computer and MR connected, then
perform the Scene Store operation. This operation will store the settings to the
internal memory of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X and the MR Editor as a Scene.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
Steinberg/Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Even when the power switch is in the “STANDBY” position, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long
time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.

Introduction
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the ADVANCED INTEGRATION DSP STUDIO MR816 CSX/MR816 X. This audio interface device
enables you to transfer the digital/analog audio signals between the DAW software such as Cubase on your computer and the
audio equipments including the electronic musical instrument, guitar and microphone. Furthermore, this product features the
Link functions with the Cubase resulting that you can build the convenient music production studio.
The MR816 CSX/MR816 X provides the two manuals: “Getting Started” manual (this manual) and “Operation Manual” (PDF file
included in the accessory disk). The Getting Started manual (this book) covers the introduction for using the MR816 CSX/
MR816 X, such as how to install the necessary software and how to connect the audio device and computer to this product. On
the other hand, the Operation Manual (PDF file) covers the details about the functions of the MR816 CSX/MR816 X and instructions. Please read the Getting Started manual (this book) at first, then read the Operation Manual (PDF file) so that you can take
full advantage of its superlative features and enjoy trouble-free operation for years to come. After reading this manual, please
keep it available for future reference.
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.
The flagship model of Cubase can also use the convenient Control Room feature with the MR816. For details about the Link
function, refer to page 21.
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.
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.
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.
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.

TOOLS for MR consists of three software components:
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver, Steinberg MR Editor and
Steinberg MR Extension. Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver
enables audio signals to be transferred between a computer and the MR816 CSX/MR816 X via IEEE1394 cables.
Steinberg MR Editor enables you to perform all settings
on the MR816 CSX/MR816 X (including basic parameters
and system-related parameters), allowing you to remotely
control the MR816 CSX/MR816 X from the computer and
save parameter settings for the MR816 CSX/MR816 X as
a file. Steinberg MR Extension enables you to use the Link
function between the MR816 CSX/MR816 X and versions
of Cubase (page 21) that are compatible with this function. The TOOLS for MR Installer installs these three software components.
If using a Windows installed Yamaha n Driver,
Yamaha AI Driver, or mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools:
Uninstall the driver software before installing the
TOOLS for MR. If you want to use mLAN devices with
the same computer, you don’t need to uninstall the
mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools.
NOTE
· If you are using mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools V1.6.2,
update them to V1.6.3 (or higher) before installing the
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver. This is necessary
because the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver cannot work
together with the mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools V1.6.2
installed.
· When using the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver,
make sure to disable the mLAN Driver. If this is
enabled (on), Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver cannot work because the mLAN Driver uses the

can be connected if the Sample Rate is set to 44.1kHz/
48kHz and up to two devices can be connected if the
Sample Rate is set to 88.2kHz/96kHz. If more devices
than this limit are connected, remove unnecessary
device(s) from the daisychain connection.
· Confirm whether or not an audio device which is not
compatible with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver has
been connected. If so, remove the corresponding
device from the daisy-chain connection.
· (For Windows) Confirm whether or not the Yamaha n
Driver, Yamaha AI Driver or mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools is
installed to the computer. If so, disable these drivers,
turn the power to the corresponding device off then on
again or disconnect the corresponding device from the
computer then connect again.
■ The device name cannot be recognized from
the DAW software.
■ Audio and MIDI signals fail to transfer
between computer and the MR816 CSX/
MR816 X.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
· There may be multiple IEEE1394 interfaces installed on
the computer and each of the multiple IEEE1394
devices may be connected to different interfaces. When
using multiple devices compatible with the Yamaha
Steinberg FW Driver and connecting them to the computer peer-to-peer individually (i.e., star-connection),
make sure to connect them all to the jacks of a single
interface.
Settings on a computer
· Confirm whether or not “TOOS for MR” has been
installed correctly.
· (For Windows XP) “Add New Hardware Wizard” may not
be completed correctly. If you have canceled it, restart
the computer so that “Add New Hardware Wizard”
appears.
· Restart the computer.
· (For Mac) If the new IEEE1394 interface (PC card, etc.)
is connected to the computer (with the power turned
on), restart the computer. The IEEE1394 device compatible with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver will be
recognized by the computer after restarting.
■ Cannot use other connected IEEE1394
devices correctly.
· Disconnect the IEEE1394 device compatible with the
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver from the computer.
