Yamaha AW4416 Audio Workstation with Yamaha MY8-AT ADAT& RME PCI card DIGI96/8 PAD. YAMAHA AW4416 Software V2.0 installed. YAMAHA MY8-AT 8-Channel ADAT I/O Card. RME PCI card DIGI 96/8 PAD.
Please note that I have owned the DIGI96/8 from new and has always worked. I have not been able to test it recently. The AW4416 has been tested and is in full working order.There are no items missing. Of note, I have owned the AW4416 from new. It has been kept in a plasticbox and I suspect there has been a reaction that has caused the rubber on thejog wheel to become sticky. Also, the rubber below the faders has alsostarted to go sticky. A quick bit of research has indicated that some AW4416ssuffer with this issue. If I were to keep the unit, I would most likely coverthem in film / tape. There are some minor cosmetic marks. All the knobs /faders etc are intact. The AW4416 is not with its original box, however, has been thoroughlypackaged. The item itself weighs 11.8kg but the parcel weighs 25kg (hence theprice) to ensure its protected. Yamaha has a long-time experience in building high-performance digitalconsoles and multi-track recorders. The AW4416 includes the achieved know-howand optimizes the technology. It is a totally integrated and complete 16-tracksmixing-recording system at a competitive quality/price ratio. The AW4416 is a professional audio workstation that allows the user to executeall the steps required to create a final audio product (signalprocessing, recording, data editing, mixdown and CD mastering). Moreover, it isthe first ministudio equipped with motorized faders at a very affordable price(about 3.000 Euro). Due to its small size, the AW4416 is easy to carriage and, thanks to itsfeatures, it can be also used in "live" performances as a flexiblemixing and recording system. The AW4416 features 8 built-inanalog inputs and a stereo digital input. The rear panel features 2 slots toadd up to 16 additional In/Out installing mini-YGDAI cards (the same used inthe 01V digital mixer and other pro-audio Yamaha products). The output section includes Stereo (analog + S/PDIF digital) and Monitoroutputs as well as flexible OMNI out ports to which is possible to assign theAUX sends, the channels 1-16 Direct outputs or the Sampling Pads signals. Installing the optional mini-YGDAI cards in the rear panel slots, the outputscan be increased providing more flexibility. The AW4416 comes with a 12Gb HD, but it can accept up to 64 Gb 2.5 IDE HD drives, without any partitionneed. The mixing section includes parametric EQs as wellas dynamics processors and delay functions (up to 59 ms) for each channel. Moreover, 2 effect processors (that includes guitar dedicated effects) arebuilt-in. The channel 8 features an additional high impedance input forguitar direct connection.
Dynamics processors are also available for bus master andstereo out. The AW4416 provides also EQ, dynamics processors, effects and mixing settingslibraries. 16 tracks recording can be both in 16-bit or 24-bit formats. Therecording section provides all the required editing functions both for main andvirtual tracks (8 virtual tracks x 16 main tracks). The locate function allows to immediately recall specific points of the song(8 Quick Locate points + 99 markers per song).
Very useful is also the QuickRecord function, enabled by the Quick Rec key, that automatically assigns themixer inputs to the recorder tracks for immediate recording sessions. The AW4416 features also the most common interface ports for external unitssynchronization or computer connection. Moreover, a serial mouse can beconnected to the unit.
This feature allows a convenient parameters graphiccontrol thru the large LCD display, similar to the Windows or Macintoshoperative systems. At last, it is possible to install an optional CD-R / CD-RW in the front panelbay to read CD-ROM data i. WAV files or for CD mastering. The motorized faders and the mixing settings can becontrolled thru dedicated "scene memories" that allow to recallthousands of parameters in a snap.In this way mixdown sessions can be moreeasy and fast. The Auto mix function allows a real-time storage of all the operations performedduring a mixing sessions as well as advanced sync functions (via SMPTE orMIDITime Code) working with external audio/video/MIDI units. The AW4416 is a compact unit: 558 mm. This allows an easy installation also in small places. Allows an easy carriage too. Considering the wide range of featuresavailable and the high-quality standard, the AW4416 price should be consideredvery affordable. The AW4416 is a great combination of mixing and recording digitaltechnologies. The mixer section can be considered as a heritage of the Yamaha02R mixing console, but the operativity recalls the Yamaha 01V and 03D digitalmixers. In terms of understanding, this is a big advantage for those who were used tooperate with these Yamaha consoles. The motorized faders allow immediate levelscontrol. EQ and PAN parameters can be conveniently set thru a dedicated controlpanel, that can be assigned to the selected channel.
The [VIEW] key graphicallydisplays all the mixing parameters, allowing a direct value setting. The recording section is easy to control and provides 8 virtual tracks for eachof the 16 available tracks, allowing a great takes flexibility. A useful toolis the waveform display of the currently selected track that allows accurateediting operations. The final mixdown is supported by well tested auto mix functions.Easy access and immediate operativity are the main advantages of theAW-4416. This is a great result, considering the large number of features, functions and applications offered by this unit. Furthermore, the AW-4416 provides a kind of "analog" approachthrough dedicated EQ and PAN control knobs (supported by the Auto Display function), while the Quick Rec function automatically and rapidly makes the appropriaterecording settings for simultaneous multitrack sessions. The immediate settings storage/recall thru libraries (available for EQ, dynamics processor, effects and channels) is another important feature as wellas I/O patching, grouping (for faders and mute), pairing (stereo pairs setting)and auto mix. The Sampling Pads section is a very useful innovation. The pads can beused to trigger WAV samples during playback or while recording. Sampling padsplayback can be also automated thru an internal sequencer. At last, the AW4416 packaging includes a very useful Tutorial manual anda demo CD. The user can learn step by step the most important mixing functionsas well as the CD mastering procedure. 24bit resolution, 8-in/8-out ADAT interface (4-in/4-out at 96kHz). RME PCI card DIGI96/8 PAD.
All settings can bechanged in real-time, all output options even in playback mode. Separate record- andplayback circuits; complete master mode. Enhanced Full Duplex:Different sample rates at input and output possible.
