The LR16 is a live mixer with integrated 16-track multi-track HD recorder, which will be ready for shipment in February of 2009.
The LR16 has two components: the 16-channel digital mixer, with analog-style operation and recorder transport controls; and the connector box, which includes the recorder and I/O panel. They are connected by only an off-the-shelf CAT5 cable, and can be separated up to 164 feet.
The LR16 can serve as a FOH or onstage mixer for the main sound system, and record all signals with CD quality onto its built-in HD at the press of a button. It records individual WAV track files, as well as a simultaneous stereo mixdown.
The LR16's other significant features include: 44.1/48kHz Recording/Playback; 16 channel strips with digitally controlled Trim and Limiter function, and 3-band EQ; Track Bounce and Punch In/Out; FAT 32 file system, which can mount the full HDD data domain to PC via USB; Master Effects Library (Reverb, Delay, etc); Group Out 1 ~ 4 (TRS), Aux Out 1 ~ 3 (TRS), and EFF Send (TRS); and rack mount hardware on each piece designed to allow flexible portability.
The LR16 carries an MSRP of $2199.00, and will be available at major pro audio and music dealers everywhere.
