As a current MR816X owner Id have to say no to that.
1. The N12 is at the EOL for Yamaha
2. The problem with the MR and probably the UR stuff is if you are using Cubase and open Cubase, when you go back out of Cubase youll find all your faders in the MR console down at ZERO. So you turn on your interface thinking your going to get sound out of your keyboard and NOPE, all the faders are at zero.
This is a design flaw where Cubase takes over the MR driver and zeros all the faders. You HAVE to remember BEFORE you shut down the computer to load up your preset in the MR console or youll be booting the computer up so you can play and hear whatever you have going into it.
3. There is no way to adjust the unit without software other than the input gain and pad switchs. Input gain volume, forget it . Ive talked to Steinberg USA on this and Japan, it is what it is.
4. No way the Steinberg units sound better than the RME UFX, sounds better and the RME Totalmix is way beyond the MR Console
