Yamaha AW1600
Casing robust, clear and sharp screen printing: a exudes health. For the rest, I never managed to perfectly synchronize the console with Sonar - Can anyone explain? By bote perfect sync against Boss rhythms. Communication with a PC, if possible, is not obvious. The fawn whose files are nomms does not make things easier, and rinjecter of modifis files ... I have not found.


Bravo for dispatching the recording options, but ds that moves away from the sound basic, this is the galre menus, submenus, parameters of near-illegible effects sometimes impossible rgler in real time, especially for compressions. No Glop! - See global comment.


Among good, decent effects even if access to rglages is very ergonomic. His perfect: Dynamic, neutral and very clean. In fact that's the basics. Restitution of models on a high-end chain is impressive to see anything made with a little "Karaok I was getting with my Korg D1600 MKII prcdent. There must be an explanation in terms of converters.


For about a year, this console is revle primarily very own at the sonorits, of restoring the nuances, timbres and dynamics. on the other hand I regret ergonomics type "Game Boy". The problem between the range of consoles that have many functions is that little or nothing has direct access. Not a balance knob unhappy or dosage effect, nor even balance between the levels of and monitoring without the need for the mandres menus and sub menus for ... little interesting spontant the creator of crazy deep in his garage! Too bad, I love the results of each, but getting started is so tedious that I sometimes struggle to me. However, I know worse, the digital console Roland VM 3100 - L if you have a little oblivion manipulations, you go easy 1/4 hour without leaving a sound!

All the connections for recorder numrique Espree is. For me working in home studio, 8 XLR inputs are sufficient. Sampling at 16 and 24 bits (8 tracks only 24-bit), but for me the 16 bit is perfectly suitable. The hard drive is 40gig as for most other race condition and is very quick and trs.
The three sync are supported: MIDI Clock, MTC and MMC and all trs Designed well.
(Report trs intuitive with a PC ---> Easy to exchange files via USB and perfect opportunity to accder from a PC hard drive all of the AW1600
8 Tracks simultanment registered and 16 readings in 16 bits. 8 in reading in 24 bits


APRS klecture a careful manual translated well for once, everything becomes clear and s'claire.
I had a Korg D1600MkII and loss of touch screen has a t forget quickly. The AW1600 has t pens by musicians for musicians, not crazy techniques.
All functions (the same usual!) Trs trs are available.
Manuel clear enough if you can read a manual.


For my part I find the quality converters trs good for home studio use.
Everything is contrlable etpeut fDone TRS rsultats beautiful even and especially when one is alone at the controls!
Dynamic perfectly respect it. Why deny it: Yamaha TRS is it right that cot l.


I have only been 15 days and it vritablement a pleasure to use.
The particularity of the AW1600 Pitch concenr els functions and IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT A GADGET.
Offered the possibility to easily detune trslgrement taken to orchestrate two acoustic (2guitares for example) may be useful trs trs trs in many cases diffrent.
This function manquaut cruellment D1600MK2 of the particles in Korg ....
The report price is trs good quality and in addition I had the pleasure of having a rduc. I do not complain of the cot!
In 2005 to make recordings of this quality with such a price AW1600 is a beautiful thing. Inamiginable still a few years ago.
Wanting more for the home studio seems to me quite useless: If one fe nothing with such a machine even when the studio on Prince will never do anything!!

In terms of CHARACTERISTICS, go to the website of Yamaha France. There's even a short video of prsentation product.
All you need is currently BCAN Submitted on, until the USB plug.
T which would even better is to have another outlet for high INPED guitar / bass (there is only one). There are 8 inputs combo XLR / TRS functional, with switchable phantom power supply for groups of 4 inputs for condenser microphones. 8 tracks can be read when choosing simultanment at a resolution 24 bit, or 16 tracks in 16 bits.
In short, everything one needs to Z A to record any instrument with any microphone, up to burning the final CD.


I had a 4-track tapes before and I had a little apprhension go live on such a BCAN. But no problem even for a nophyte long as you read the manual that is relatively clear, well done, and who thought little prs explain everything. We can let go on his eyes closed: the machine will allow you to touch the sound of Manir prcise enough and play with the eq (4-band parametric), dynamics (comp, exp, etc. cps etc.), and the effects of all kinds. Everything is accessible trs, Retailer and forward the spirit "user-musician."


The pre-amps are really good quality and low What had microphones and instruments correct Fidler they hand back your game and your sound, even though crude uncorrected. There are a multitude of effects in between (used before registration) for several types of instrumentals. They are all adjustable and well penss. Otherwise, you can rework each track with APRS two effects selected from quite a number of lev adjustable effects. APRS there are library Designed for pre-eq and dynamics. It may well note that any so-rgler same and it is an obligation even when recording a group (including the battery) to find a place and a texture for each instrument . But once you DCID has to consider the bte is trs INTERESTED, fun and rewarding, as in my case my your exact adpass expectancy at!


I use it for one month and I recorded two songs with dj. What I like about this machine? Everything! since its design (beautiful, strong and compact) until its reliability and sound it can be used to head ever made! And yet I had no idea about the sound engineered by buying it. You just need some basics about the Torah (sound processing and sound recording) that can be found on the internet but it's good APRS. There may come a rsultat really well and it is especially trs has precedence. Obviously, we would like better to have 16 inputs and 16 recordable tracks simultanment to avoid merging / bouncer when you take more than 8 sources, but ... It does not exist for such a price. The report qualitprix is ​​excellent (especially since I had a good rduc above). Certainly it is an investment, but for what it is and if you have runic ncessaires funds, you can go. I would do without this choice because hsiter took me 4 months of comparisons with other creatures to dwell on it.

Well this is going to do next six months I have, it progresses quickly trs is good hardware is indisputable, but I think that by dint of use and progression is reached quickly end. The quality of sound is trs trs well. The quality of the chantillonage sounds are good, the drum can dpanner beginners to time to acquire another.


Reduces setup just as few button but it bent a little and it is possible.


Trs your exact sound good on CD is of good quality


I use it for six months, I like its simplicity its sound its strong virtual tracks, the effects are absolutely gniaux! the rapid use (when we read and reread the manual) I like less the memory capacity (not enough) the sound of the microphone for voice is not strong enough (XLR connector) is my first model I recommend anyone in the recording numrique beginners I would do this choice
