Yamaha AW2400 Multi-track Recorder : Review

AW2400

The maximum of the versatility

16 simultaneous inputs, 8 XLR and 8 TRS. In addition it supports an optional expansion card for other 8 inputs, analog or digital. It records 16 tracks simultaneously, at 16-bit, or 8 at 24-bit. For each physical track it provides 8 virtual channels. All can be paired to a mixer channel and its motor faders for really a total flexibility.

EQ and dynamics

Each mixer channel provides a 4-band EQ with two algorithms and indipendent controls for compression and Gate.

Fast and easy

Notwithstanding the complexity of the functions and the various possibilities that it can offer, the AW2400 has been designed to be fast and easy to use. The large display shows every step of the work and the additional numeric keypad allows a fast data entry. Everything is direct and immediate. Obviously, a brief apprenticeship is necessary, but in a short time you will be able to use this recorder without problems.

The Automix

It provides motor faders and knobs that can be automatized. The only thing you have to make is to memorize scenes and save them. When you will recall the scene memory, it will automatically position faders and knobs at the appropriate position.

Effects

Many Reverbs (Hall, Room, Stage, Plate, Gate, Reverse), Delays (Mono, Stereo, Modulation), Echo, Chorus, Flanger, Symphonic, Phaser, Auto Pan, Tremolo, Pitch (HQ, Dual), Rotary, Ring Modulator, Filter. In addition there are distortions and various amps simulators.

    4 XLR inputs, balanced, and 4 1/4" inputs. There is a guitar input with a dedicated knob for the analogic distortion. The Trim control is very useful to cut the signal level to avoid the distortion.
