Future Music readers prefer Yammy.      18/11/02
Barely a month after it first started shipping in the UK the Yamaha AW16g has beaten off strong competition scooping the accolade of ' BEST RECORDER' in the recent Future Publishing awards voted for by the readers. The awards also featured a number of categories for digital recorders at various prices points with the AW16g being voted best recorder overall beating off products costing up to three times as much . Runners up included the Akai DPS24 and the Boss 1180 Yamaha 's head of Music production Peter Peck told us "We are obviously delighted to receive the award for AW16g at such an early stage in its life. Even though AW16G is only a few month's old, it seems to have really excited a wide variety of musicians." Technically the AW16G is a 36 channel, 16 track hard disc recording system complete with full editing, sampling and mastering facilities. Compatible with Mac or PC recording systems it can be used to control synthesizers and other external MIDI devices and features include large LCD screen, a built-in loop sampler, 4-band parametric EQ and dynamics on all channels. A Sound Clip function lets you quickly capture musical ideas while practicing and eight channel inputs with 24-bit A/D conversion let you record up to 16 tracks of audio. The AW16G can play back up to 16 tracks of recorded audio simultaneously - more than any digital multitrack recorder in its price and is the only digital audio workstation in its class to offer precision 4-band parametric EQ and studio-quality compression, expansion, gate and ducking on all channels.
