Everything on this unit is doing what it is supposed to do, and more!!!
Everything is Self-explanatory! If you can read, you be a master at digital recording and producing!
It is easily portable and not too big! All you have to do is log on to their website(www.aw2816.com) and get any kind of customer support.
The Preamps in this unit sound spectacular! It has every effect I need to produce "Bangin" tracks for my peoples!
Basically, Yamaha hit it on da head with this one!!! I have their QY70, and SU200 phrase sampler. Together with those two unit and the AW2816, I'll outdo anybody musically. I don't care if you have an MPC or anything, I'll top it!

Did you find this review helpful?yesno
drumy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Could someone tell me the difference it there with the AW16-G which seems to be more relevant than the 2816. Is the low price difference between a justified AW16- G new and secondhand AW2816!
Is CONSIDERED 2816 as little more professional? if so, in what area? Thank you for your answer, Sincerely, Drumy.
For specifications, see the docs on the subject.
The only weak point that I found the connection is only 2 connectors are XLR, the other jack. I had to make connections XLR-Jack.
For storage, I changed the internal disk with a 64 GB It is still in cheap. Otherwise, I found myself having full disk and not be able to recover even as wav enough space (recording of a concert 5h continuous).
Also a weak point here: Recycling of VERY long file, you must use software found on the net to pick up the pieces imported into the pc, dees times with 10 A / R rewritable CD! I contacted Yamaha japan for information on the format or structure of the disk in order to eventually develop a IDE-USB interface eg. but no further info is available at home (it is true that I had contacted foist tsunami ...)
CDC: for me the perfs are still very professional and versatility still good (see below)
General config not too difficult to understand, clear manual, even if you do not gobble everything from the first reading . The usual functions are accessible.
Personally, I wanted to use in mixing desk, as well as recording. While we did not make a real mixing desk, missing auxiliary circuits, etc ... but it met what I expected for rpeter group.
Then I made recordings "live", so not too much to say the above (2 tracks).
Finally, I made a recording of repet live, but each instrument on a track. I admit that the final mix was very easy to make, simple and very good quality, without spending hundreds of hours.
for me, the A / D converters and D / A are transparent, but I do not have much recoil for comparison.
The dynamic is good, refreshed and storable effective effects and filters on each channel, in short, what more, especially for the price I paid.
I am very satisfied and even if I wanted to try to replace it with a AWS1600 or 2400 to try to reduce weaknesses (file transfers, etc.), I've realized that the AW2816 is the most versatile, comparable with other more recent perfs. So I keep!!
