WNAMM06: Catch-up with the Yamaha AW2400
Phil Shoots to Score

I know this isn’t the newsiest of news, in so far as Yamaha released the AW2400 and kid brother AW1600 in the Summer of last year, but I don’t recall seeing any one running through what these dedicated hard disc recorder/digital mixers can do. So we caught up with Phil Clendenin of Yamaha US who showed us round. Just to recap:
AW2400
Is a 24 track, 24 bit recorder, with 48 digital mixing channels, 4 internal Yamaha effects processors and MY expansion bay. Combined with its 40 Gb internal hard drive, mastering effects and an internal CD writer, a large backlit LCD screen, tactile 10-key pad and 100mm motorized faders. Its unique ability to playback 24 tracks whilst simultaneously mixing a further 24 'live' inputs enables the AW2400 to fit into many different environments - from the home studio to live performance support and mixing, the AW2400 has the flexibility to suit.
RRP: $2,695.00


I'm the AW2400 and this is the AW1600

AW1600
The new 16 track, 24 bit portable recorder. Building on the success of the multi-award winning AW16G, this new model now boasts 24 bit recording, 8 combo inputs, 4 band parametric eq AND dynamics processing for each of its 36 mixer channels. As with the AW2400, the internal 40 Gb hard drive and integral CDR-W drive allow for projects to be taken from performance to final CD without the need for any other hardware. The internal 8 voice sampler can also be used in a variety of different ways - from creative to corrective applications, its easy to move, loop and re-trigger audio files.
RRP: $1495.00
