Arts en Scène's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fostex D2424LV
Connectors: 24 IN jacks in symtriques + 24 OUT jacks symtriques, 24/24 in ADAT, MIDI
Sampling up 24bits/96Khz
Support: Standard IDE + 1 free bay for another drive or SCSI or IDE DVD-RAM, SCSI-2 (but hard drives for backup WAVE 2GB limits ...)
Synchro: Word Clock, MIDI
Up to 24 tracks for reading and 24 tracks simultaneously recording! Plus 32 virtual tracks.


The manual is in English, but clear enough plutt pais.
Registration is very simple, there's that arm the tracks and start recording, for the functions of a ditions is complicated a little with the prsence a few too many diff combinations Annuities: it must function according to juggle Cut, Move, or Delete from Clipboard In / Out, Edit Start, Edit End, Auto Punch In and Out, and it's not a logical forcment empty at first but with the manual at hand is fast balls collage ... The edition also requires arming recording the tracks where it occurs, as some o the risks LGERS APRS opration of the record over without blunder.
The transport is efficient, self-punch also gnral menu is comprehensive and clear, and the system of Undo is carrment glove! Just tell her what time back in the opration, without counting the opration couraging since.


No effects, no problem ;-)
Remarkable: what comes is what comes out, no noticeable color, but I am not specialist in.


3 months of use and (almost) that happiness!
I had an AKAI DPS16 j'apprcie before and although the sr 24 tracks simultaneous recording, for 24 against the force output tracks have a big console derrire ...
The big + if you mix on computer: network card, not fast but so much easier than lugging hard drives or fiddling with the SCSI ... SCSI also rather inefficient with a hard drive, which will automatically limit 1.8 GB or 2GB for backup to WAV; prfrez a ZIP.
Problem also: the machine ... ... Sometimes crashes. Never running "critical" (ernregistrement), but sometimes changing project and especially in FTP.
Another thing: after-sales service is assured Fostex Sennheiser in France, I am all at Headquarters Ivry and they are really bad trs, at least on this machine.

Fostex D2424LV
24 in / out jack symtrique
24 in / out adat
Midi in / out
Word in / out
converters rather transparent (not OK c Apogee but good for the price ...) up 24 bits / 96Khz
24 tracks + 32 tracks recordable simultanment ghosts


Trs simple config
Edition prcise enough even if one regrets the lack of a VGA port as the Mackie (but hey the Fostex is 3x cheaper) ...
There are a lot of shortcuts your checks some functions, just bone up on manual ... Trs is clear.


Magnto who do not plant and provides a good quality conversion trs.


I work for 1 year with and I produced several albums in DIFFERENT styles (poprock, mtal, song, jazz ...) all Distribus ...
Anyway, the D2424 is a magnto!
There is no magic, for it respects against the signal and that is what I expected from him.

J'apprcie particulirement its stability (bug ever since its purchase)

I also Dtd boss with Akai, Fostex old (D160) and Adat.
The DTD is a good alternative when you do not afford a system that ProTools and we can not stand the vagaries of a computer ...

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

Fostex D2424LV
Connection: standard for this type of digital 24-track machines, ADAT format and converts it into analog.

SAMPLING: is more than enough, no need to 32/192 What's (for after the stream MP3!)

support: dtd classic can export your HD on another wave or dvd ram (call for compatibility Sennheiser France) and also in format fostex I forget the exact format, if you want your customer to come back, you understand you have to do!!

sync: the machine still used in master sync pm (TCM) not bad, never had any desire to sync the machine tc smpte, the card is super expensive about 1000 Euros minus. Save smpte solution on the tracks 24 as the old!!

for the price of the card ..................................... damage


General configuration, the best design flexibility for analog recording, auto punch, undo / redo, not for editing screen (not even optional) ........ feasible, but cumbersome for loaves of setting up and copy paste to the sheet please, like the old 3348 on the Sony (for short, they recognize !!!),

landlords, y'en 99, but it's a mess !!!!! on the fly and not practical, so the thing stopping you ..... it's better!

the manual is in English but in French findable on the net. Heat your inprimantes and prepare your ink cartridges.

not for editing screen, landlords bof !!!!.................... damage


Converters restore order rather transparente.Si upstream there is good microphones, good preamp. and above all the know-how ..... no real problems with her. almost everything is!!


I use it for 3 years, full galley soft, crash, dédrop (punch out) some random sound cuts in dédrop (silence is turned!) Then back 2.3 seconds later. chelou !!!!.

features that lovin: it is small (3 or 4 inches), the remote will pick up the full front and easily calable between insipid (100mm), if disponbibles. levels of the modules are under your nose. The converters are not evils for the price.

special lovin it: buy an extension for the remote, I find it a bit noisy, and the options are too expensive or énexistantes.

no chance for crashes, but if the bike is stable, it is a good substitute for a magnetic analog machine for its interesting (converters), but not perfect and the options for work in the studio.

the alesis, gives an option for the visually, with extraction of hot your HD, make your choixxxxxxxxx

The use and configuration of D2424LV is very simple and intuitive.
Instructions in English, but possibility of the download on the site in French FOSTEX: # 10


The converters are of excellent quality, although they respect the tone trs.
trs practices 3 in / out adat, the transfer wav files on his computer


I had an Akai DR8 and Roland VSR-880 trs silent as well, but I need more tracks to record acoustic drums.
I use it daily for 1 year recording studio, not a crash! I think it's a small wonder!
Trs good dynamic recording and playback 24bits/48khz. In 24bit/96kHz is the killing! Reduces even if the storage capacity of hard disk and the number of tracks 8.
I bought 1400 euros hand and I do not really regret!
