Incredibly easy to use recorder The D16XD is designed to provide unparalleled ease of use, the highest quality audio recording and processing available - and to look good doing it. The clean, stylish lines and uncluttered control surface are preserved thanks to the huge TouchView display that organizes all the D16XD parameters and controls into easily accessed on-screen menus. This new display features enhanced resolution, a four-tone gray scale, and tilts up for easy viewing. The improvements to the display make it ideal for audio editing functions. Four dedicated knobs below the display provide permanent real-time access to the Effects parameters. The D16XD includes similar dedicated knobs and buttons for the individual EQs and Sends. Supreme audio quality at up to 24-bit/96kHz Xtended Definition means that the D16XD features uncompressed, 24-bit/96kHz audio recording. Resolutions of 48kHz and 44.1kHz (both at 24 and 16-bit depths) are also supported. The D16XD maintains its digital processing quality rthroughout the mixer, effect and output stages. But digital excellence is not the end of the story. The D16XD also provides eight channels of fully programmable analog compression to the inputs, delivering a richness of tone and dynamic processing that cannot be duplicated by digital technology. Flexible modular input options The D16XD's eight XLR jacks, each with individual phantom power supply, only hint at the input possibilities. Eight 1/4" balanced jacks are also provided. Each input features a variable trim knob and a 24dB pad to accommodate almost any input source. By adding the optional eight channel analog input board (AIB-8) the D16XD can reach its full potential of 16 inputs. The optional analog compressor board (ACB-8) provides the same high quality compression to these extra inputs. For added convenience, the D16XD's front panel offers a dedicated guitar input. Up to 16-track simultaneous recording, 132 virtual tracks The D16XD support up to 16 tracks of simultaneous recording and playback, with the optional AIB-8 expansion board. Each track contains eight virtual tracks. New to the Xtended Definition series is a Master Track dedicated to creating your final stereo mix. The Master Track also features 8 virtual tracks, allowing you to make many alternate mixes in the same song. Just in case you're curious, that comes out to 144 total tracks for the D16XD. Wow! Powerful 40-input mixer The D16XD features a 40 input, 12 buss digital mixer with extensive EQ capabilities. Each of the 16 recorder channels features a full four-band parametric EQ with selectable hi and low shelving. The submixer inputs can accommodate 24 channels, each with hi and low shelving EQ, and a final 8-band fully parametric EQ is available when recording to the D16XD's Master Track. Channel pairing is also available with multiple pan control algorithms. Stereo Master, Monitor, Solo and Cue outputs, plus two internal effect busses and two aux busses round out the Mixer section. Automation and navigation The mixer section of the D16XD can store 100 different mixer "scenes" and recall them automatically during playback. The TouchView screen can display the settings of each mixer scene. Locate points - six in all - are used to define edit points and loop points. An additional 100 "Marks" can be used to auto-locate back to any point in a song. With the D16XD you can even name each of the Marks to help remind you what part of your song they are pointing to. Effects by the boatload! The D16XD is a veritable wellspring of effect processing power. Up to eleven high quality digital effects are available simultaneously on the D16XD - 8 Insert Effects, two Master Effects (stereo) and one Final Effect (stereo). The icon driven display and dedicated control knobs combine to make effect routing, selection and editing a breeze. A palette of 52 effect types produces 128 preset effect program, and 128 user programmable effect programs. The D16XD's effects programs are based on Korg's highly acclaimed REMS modeling technology. Footswitch and foot pedal jacks on the front panel allow you to actually play and interact with the effects in real time. Limitless editing abilities The D16XD's track editing is raised to new heights with Xtended Definition. You can swap, delete, move, bounce, normalize, copy, reverse - even fade tracks in or out. Expansion and compression tools allow you to shrink or stretch a track to fit into a specific time, with either fixed or variable pitch. Optimize commands include deleting recorded silent areas to recover valuable recording time, or removing punch in/out artifacts. You can also import and export D16XD track data as .WAV format audio files, with internal digital rate conversion, include 24 to 16 bit dithering. Once again, the huge TouchView display comes to the rescue, making it easy to zoom in on the displayed audio data and set your edit points with great accuracy. Change your mind? All edits (up to the last sixteen) can be reversed using the Undo command. The D16XD is a very flexible box! Burn your CD straight from your tracks! After you've recorded and mixed to your heart's content, burn your creation to the D16XD's built-in CD burner and give it a listen. Feeling prolific? Arrange multiple songs in order, specify the gap time between songs, and burn your CD all at once using the Album Project feature. Mark points can be used to create track indexes when burning a continuous performance (a live concert for example) to CD. Studio friendly Designed to be at home in an increasingly digital studio environment, the D16XD recorder comes equipped with S/PDIF optical connectors for digital input and output. A 2GB area of the internal hard drive is designated as the USB drive, which can be recognized by a computer connected to the D16XD's USB port for easy file sharing. An additional eight channels of digital I/O are available in ADAT light-pipe format by adding the optional Digital Interface Board (DIB-8). This option also includes a digital word clock input and output. Transport, fader movement, effect settings and other controls changes can be sent and received via MIDI. The D16XD can also send and receive MIDI Time Code (MTC) and MIDI Machine Control (MMC) commands and send MIDI Clock. Multiple frame rates are supported for MTC sync.
