"Korg D-1600 MKII"

See: DAIRYBEAT, for my previous review.

See: DAIRYBEAT, for my previous review.

When the Punch-In/Out recording mode has been used, it leaves on the In/Out times a clicking noise. When the overall music balance is loud, it's not noticeable, but when it's not, you can defenitly hear it and it spoils the recording that's been made!

See: DAIRYBEAT, for my previous review.

For the clicking noise I have to deduct a full point, for some people this problem will make the recorder useless to them.

"Korg D-1600 MKII"

I bought the studio recorder through the Internet, in a store in The Netherlands. Their price was very compatible for Europe, 1,299.00 Euro's; add about 20% to get the Dollar price (that might be different again tomorrow...). We, DAIRYBEAT, a hobby band, have started to record our own cd: 'The Attick Sounds'.

The recorder and I needed a couple of days of getting used to each other and me going through the manual. I blamed the recorder for not working properly, but it blamed me not reading properly; the recorder was right! Now we're getting on like a dream. Precise recording without clipping, lots of effects to choose from and a very good sound.

I ordered the recorder in The Netherlands, where we speak Dutch, but it only came with an English manual! So I had to follow a speedy English course before I could start using the unit, but I now also hold an English degree! Apart from that, no dislikes.

I have no complaints on construction and quality of the unit.

I have a dream of selling one of my songs to a big artist or a Record Company. If that dream will come true, I will be forever in debt to my Korg.

The USB and more from the D1600? There are no pictures, it does nothing more (this is exactly the same bike) because with the integrated burner and a CDR-RW you transfer everything you want on your PC and vice versa and , and at least you do not have problems with crashes so dear to our beloved PC. No need to have a bike like if it is to look for E. s. ... You have everything at hand, and here, it's not virtual!

The material is hyper serious, reliable, ergonomically designed to the maximum, and much easier than AW-16 competitor, with whom you spend more time in the user manual on the bike. When in doubt, do as MOA, will test it in a store because it's still more expensive than a pack......

When in doubt, do as MOA, will test it in a store because it's still more expensive than a pack of smokes (but it hurts less to the lungs) is not ready to make a shot ^ old this machine!

UTILIZATION

The config is the crap (you still have to eat it), so easy and affordable! A manual with hyper clear that! I'm not a very very old in the homestudio, but it's very intuitive, very logical in all phases of recording, without taking the lead.

SOUNDS

Then the filters! I did not believe it. If you have a good Shure 57 or 58, you're quiet for a long time. I'm not saying the economy that you can make purchase of microphones. Is not the wallet will be happy? You still have to amortize the beast!

No compressors imposed on the inputs, that's top, you're the boss or not?

OVERALL OPINION

It's been a few months I have, and I think to keep a lot of time. I confess that I find it difficult to part with it. The dimensions are very honest, without falling into the gadget to 4kg. and fragile. Super chassis inside; IDE Hard Drive (40 GB) that can change in 2 minutes to the biggest, though it is not necessary; of 8x8x32 burner drawer too. What you ask for? I dare not say what I had before, would not it be nice! with a good flycase for lugging in rehearsal (I drooled every time, pleasure, yes). In price / quality ratio? simple: UNBEATABLE! And then, looking good, we find at a good price, new (it's solid). Resale? no problem, as the IS of the stew! It's so sought after!

Go Zique and good friendships

Your Korgialement, Drumy

PS. If it again, I will change perhaps nana (sorry ladies) but not my DR-1600.

For specifications, all you need for a quality job:
16 tracks (128 virtual).
40 GB hard drive, built-in CD burner.
Registration 24/16 bits / 44.1 kHz (uncompressed of course!)
MIDI / USB Connection
Direct recording of 8 tracks, including 4 XLR with power supply. ghost
Built-in effects
Touch screen (which is far from a gimmick!), Etc. etc. ...
In short, that's good ....

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is very good, although of course it takes some getting used to.
This is where action comes into the touch screen because it allows you to "walk" so nice on the different views available without going so far as the knob and arrow keys.
Great opportunity to record......

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is very good, although of course it takes some getting used to.
This is where action comes into the touch screen because it allows you to "walk" so nice on the different views available without going so far as the knob and arrow keys.
Great opportunity to record "Scenes". Indeed, I write songs that are sometimes very long and in which several subjects follow, so different settings. The faders are not motorized, the scenes can, through faders graphics, doing this.
The scenes, in addition, both record volume levels that effect settings.
Functions are as brilliant as the "scrub" which, when assembling pieces, to see precisely the beginning of the game you want to change (shown in waveform on the screen), the " bland track "that increases or decreases the sound automatically.
Not talking about the editing features on the tracks (copy, move, delete etc. ....).
In short, this machine offers real possibilities, and the result is obtained after, of course, some "blunders" due to the adaptation time of the machine, is really surprising.
I would put just a little flat on the effects, because using them is not very easy.
Maybe my age is it relevant??

SOUNDS

Nothing to say ... it's clean, clean, burr-free.
I use for my part, a tube preamp and a compressor (which is not a requirement with the D1600!). This allows me to focus on other effects available on the Korg. I used an earlier 8 tracks with Roland COSM effects simulation unique to that manufacturer.
Korg has the same thing, called REMS, and I have noticed that generally, the Korg effects are much more "soft" effects Roland, who, for some, generate breath.
Using only the keyboard sounds, the Korg is more "soft" and therefore more pleasing to the ear.
Nevertheless, the result is at the top, the momentum is there, and the converters are absolute discretion.
In addition, the effects can be adjusted to the "quarter-haired"

OVERALL OPINION

It is a machine that brings great pleasure to create and use.
There is nothing to throw on Korg!. Nice build quality, comfortable use, excellent, brand reputation ... and finally, a price after all very interesting since it is possible to negotiate this beautiful toy in about 1300/1400 Euros.
A cost that may seem important, but still more than adequate to the results that can be drawn.
Of course, now after 3 months of use, it is not even possible for me to use another recorder, and yes, 40 brushes, it focuses on things!!
