MESSE08: Yamaha Send An Audiogram


Yamaha Music Production has announced the introduction of the Audiogram 3 and the larger Audiogram 6 Computer Recording Systems.
The two Audiogram devices are offered as complete packages which include a USB Audio Interface, USB cable and comprehensive Cubase AI4 music production software for both Mac and PC platforms.
Yamaha say that both models boast easy to use operation and installation procedures and transform any USB- equipped computer into a complete and comprehensive recording studio.
Athan Billias, Director of Marketing - Technology Products for Yamaha Corporation of America, had this to say, “The AUDIOGRAM Series has been carefully designed to make everything from set-up to recording as easy as possible. With USB powered hardware that automatically recognizes the included Cubase AI software, computer music production is now accessible to virtually anyone.�
The Audiogram 6 features 2 XLR combo inputs with preamps and one-knob compression for dialing in the desired sound from microphones and instruments. One of these inputs has switchable phantom power for using condenser microphones. Two stereo inputs, stereo and headphone outputs, and a USB jack complete the unit’s connections. The unit includes separate controls for audio inputs and computer playback for complete control while recording.

Audiogram 3
With a focus on simplicity, the Audiogram 3 features one phantom powered combo input switchable for microphones or instrument recording, a stereo input, a stereo and headphone output as well as a USB jack for connection to the computer.
Pricing and Availability:
Both the Audiogram 3 and Audiogram 6 will be available from June 2008 and be priced at £89 and £129 respectively – that’s $139.99 and $199.99 in the US.

    The drivers for the Audiogram3 on my laptop running Vista 32 are terrible...Plus there is no way to turn down the direct signal!! For a unit that is marketed somewhat towards guitar players this makes no sense! The only way to hear the processed signal on its own in your headphones is to turn down the input control which lowers the input signal of your guitar! Otherwise you will hear both the dry signal and processed signal from your DAW at the same time! Madness!

    Unless Yamaha bring out better drivers with proper monitor support in the next week (unlikely) then I will have no choice but to return the Audiogram3...

    Think about it, An audio interface bundled with a DAW which doesn't allow monitor control?? I have no idea if this is the case with the 6 version..

    I bought this because I'm a Cubase 4 user and I thought it would be cool to have a product that was created with Cubase in mind but boy was I wrong!..lol.

    Same problem for me; not being able to switch off monitor mode makes this pretty useless for any task that requires the processed signal to be monitored through the same output. I was already going to return it for some other issues, but I decided to keep it but now I'm wishing I had returned it when I had the chance!
