« Good but bad! However, I love »Published on 11/15/12 at 01:34
I love his performance, ergonomics apparent. Once you've read three lines of instructions (in French) can virtually close, almost everything goes alone.
This machine excels at Q / P. I had fun making a comparison of weight between about 1980 and run today but the price per track for the same periods. Very fun and impressive.
My use. Play play-back jazz pieces without battery or Caron Chet Baker or on piece played in re-re with a friend, interposed internet. Caron or for Chet, track 1 and 2 for playback and 4 tracks (Bass Drum, Snare, Overhead Left and Right channels in 48V.
Note, PanPot EQ and easily accessible. And it is from there the rub! Out for basic functions and practices, the manual is great no matter what! Genre: To explain the use of Reverb? Incomprehensible! To understand the mix of 6 tracks on the other two? Incomprehensible! Another example, representation of the button "SWAP / BOUNCE" and explanation: brace yourselves! "Swap button / Bounce!" Confess with such explanations are well advanced! And all kinds of things in this booklet! One wonders what is or are the gnomes who wrote!
Very poorly explained, but very easy to get the WAV tracks on the SD card of any project on a PC to the mix on Audacity for example.
1 - First of all, install the R16 driver on the PC (Drivers CD supplied).
2 - Turn off the R16. Then connect to the PC via the USB cable supplied with the R16.
3 - The display will show:
> Audio Interface
4 - With the arrow (->) directions keypad, display:
> CARD READER
5 - Press "Enter"
6 - It shows:
7 - You once again confirm with "Enter"
8 - It appears again:
9 - It's over for config R16. On the PC displays the "Removable Disk"
10 - Open the disk and display its contents.
11 - This displays folders like: PRJO000 and PROJ001 (these are your projects stored on the USB card, unless you have known). SYS does not interest you.
12 - You double click PROJ000 example.
13 - Opens a window that contains among others the folder "AUDIO" that you open. It contains all the tracks. WAV for your project "PRO000". Then simply drag them to your desktop and it won.
Criticize these lines if you think they are not clear.
Apart from that, I like the sound of this tool.
The price / quality ratio? Excellent. To add something, I do not regret this purchase but I developed a fierce hatred against those who wrote the manual. You really learn what their pedagogy!
PS - If someone can describe clearly and simply how to mix the first 6 tracks on the 7 and 8, a big thank you to him ...
