OVERALL OPINION

That's it, I finally my AW16G I paid Euro 1190 with 2 year warranty in Lyon.
I find it honest even if it still hurts when to exit.
First impressions are pretty good, all is sturdy and inspires confidence. Apart from the recorder appears fragile (laptop type).
I read the user manual almost entirely before buying the machine to be sure not to deceive me when to use a bit special I want to do.
I was greatly facilitated the handling and all seems to me not very complicated.
I plan to use the machine for models of course but also to live. I have a group of reggae / ragga and I want to turn the instrument on while using the multi-function mixer with 8 inputs compression, EQ, and effects, for four singers (mouth disease), the DJ and a guitarist.
All this is possible which is pretty phenomenal.
For editing waves, you are entitled to minimum union with qd even a pitch and time stretch. But better to have a PC in addition to that.
I will oppose and, moreover, not PC DtDs but I will say that they are complementary. The PC for its ease of use (monitor, mouse, versatility ,...) and the recorder for reliability, mobility, ability to live ...
Regarding the quality of the converters is the 24-bit but I have not yet really tested so ... no opinion yet on this issue.
Note that the small loop sampler built is really nice to live.
The big lack in my opinion just the lack of connection to the computer world precisely the style USB, SCSI or FireWire.
This is a small balance first after 3 days of use (a 10aine hours).

Yamaha AW16G
I will not here again numrer what trs well done VET, I share the opinion that 100%

UTILIZATION

I find this camera a little complicated for the typical person (I am), having no notion in the record Dtd.
The machine is powerful but none, I believe, intuitive.
The manual does not help unfortunately this regard because of its complexity dconcertante same.

SOUNDS

I am not a specialist in the digital and Save, as VET, this is my first DTD (APRS be used long ago, a Tascam 4-track K7).
The sound unit dlivre be neutral and I think that's what I wanted.
The quality is perfect for me to use my Home Studio.

OVERALL OPINION

I possde for a little over one month but I confess to not m'tre immersed srieusement on bte once or twice due to time constraints.
This is my first multitrack digital and I thought I could quickly finalize a CD and this, Manir innit! Nni ... that we must delve into the Mandres the manual for this.
It is impossible to work instinct with this mini-studio, but the habit of recording should find their account nanmoins (operation PRO!).
Before, I barnacles audio into the microphone and I climbed through the reader of the latter.
Obviously, the mix (if not usurped talking about mixing) and ZrO c'tait linear but have tweaked via the APRS squenceur, finalizing the Cd silent relatively simple.
However, the quality did not suit me and the many crashes microphone inhrents Exceeds the result of alterations of memory (although 768 MB of RAM) DCID me move on indpendant mini-studio.
I also tudi other stuff and, frankly, there's no price report better quality especially as the construction of the device (not plastoc) is reassuring.
But it may be that if the D1600 CDR had t the price of the AW16 G. ...

Efp's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha AW16G
2 XLR inputs with 48V phantom + 6 between 6.35 (including a spcial guitar)
excellent sound (44.1 KHz / 16 bit uncompressed)
support hard drive
8-track simultaneous recording 16 tracks read
For each track was recorded 8 tracks virutelles (soon to clear a track to remake a decision if it is not sr: you can choose APRS all taken).

UTILIZATION

If you have not used the numrique, the beginners are difficult, but worth it.
Gnralement functions are easily accessible: some lments seemed illogical (but I'm not a regular numrique). Obviously, we would like all the LCD screen is bigger ...
The manual is trs * * wrong.
I have not used the sampler, which does not seem simple matriser trs. We'll see ...

SOUNDS

Being given that I pass the 4-track cassette machine numrique this, I must say that the diffrence is fMeasure. I also had a studio in between multi-computer, but After a few years, we get tired of doing everything the mouse, and machines like the AW16G, no doubt about the results give more spontaneous if one learns to use it (such as computers ...).
There is a 4-band compressor paramtrique trs effective and equalizer on each track + 2 internal effects: It is viewable on the screen.
The effects seem good.

OVERALL OPINION

I chose the AW16G APRS bcp tudi have all models in this price range. It parat that the low end, but frankly, the price is an extraordinary machine. I would do without this choice hsitation.
I've had a few weeks: it is a machine that requires well take time to learn to use it. 15 30 minutes a day only for beginners not to be too when you take the lead in numrique beginners. A minimum of 6 months to start be comfortable I think, and probably a good year for the matriser. The manual is trs bad but there are excellent sites and forums in English

http://www.aw16g.com and http://forum.aw16g.com
These sites are essential for the deficiencies of the manual level.

I use it only in leisure, I'm 40, I make the zic during my rare off-peak hours, when my children and my job gives me time ..

J'apprcie particulirement the hill more spontaneous with a computer (over hacking Standing between the hardware and software). But for addicts of the computer's internal CD recorder allows you to export all the wav sound files on a CD, and treat it all on a computer.
In addition, the table serves AW16G pilot to control the software like Cubase, Cakewal, Sonar, etc..
