Product DescriptionKorg D1200MKII 12-Track Digital Recorder
New, Blue and Mark II
The new D1200mkII Digital Recording Studio is a sophisticated, portable studio designed around the needs of the guitarist or songwriter. With cutting edge modeling effects and intuitive controls, the D1200mkII will help you capture your creative moments and deliver a superb-sounding final mix burnt onto an audio CD. The upgraded CD-RW drive allows 16x writing and 10x re-writing.
Ergonomically designed front panel
Korg digital recording studios are known for their logical, easy-to-use controls, and the D1200mkII is no exception. The controls are arranged to follow the recording process from start to finished CD. Even the angle of the backlit 240 x 64 pixel LCD display can be adjusted for comfortable viewing.
All the right connections
To ensure the highest audio quality, the D1200mkII uses high-performance balanced preamps on all analog inputs. Two XLR inputs provide high-quality mic preamps and are equipped to deliver +48V phantom power. A dedicated guitar input jack is also provided. The S/PDIF digital input automatically converts incoming 48 kHz and 32 kHz data into 44.1 kHz for recording.
Full-featured mixer section
The D1200mkII's 16-channel, 4-bus mixer section provides a separate three-band EQ on each analog input and each playback channel: high and low shelving EQ, and a mid-range peaking EQ with adjustable center frequency. The fader, EQ, pan, and effect settings of the mixer section can be stored in one of 100 scene memories.
The D1200mkII records and plays back either 16 or 24-bit/44.1 kHz audio data. The D1200mkII uses no data compression, so the sound you put in is exactly the sound you get back. A maximum of all 12 tracks can be played back simultaneously and up to four tracks can be recorded simultaneously. Each track contains eight virtual tracks, giving you a total of 96 tracks per song.
Abundant effects, including REMS Modeling
The D1200mkII provides three independent effect systems (44-bit internal processing). Up to eight insert effects can be assigned to individual channels. Two master effects provide polish to your mix, and the final effect can add the best overall EQ, compression/limiting, etc. to the master L/R channels. Combinations using up to five of the 98 available effect algorithms provide 128 insert, 32 master, and 32 final effects. You can edit any of these 192 preset programs and save them to any of the 192 user program memories.
For the guitarist, bassist or singer/songwriter, the D1200mkII simplifies the initial set-up process. Just turn on the Modeling mode and choose Guitar, Bass, or Mic. The D1200mkII will automatically route the effects to your input, assign the appropriate modeling effects to the three dedicated knobs, and will arm the first two tracks for recording.
Sophisticated and flexible track editing
The D1200mkII is packed with powerful non-destructive editing tools. It's easy to move sections of your tracks or song around using the Copy, Insert, Swap and Delete commands. Powerful pro-level functions include Normalize and Time Compression/Expansion.
High-capacity 40 GB hard drive plus USB connector
The D1200mkII contains a large 40 GB hard drive, which offers a whopping 122 hours of recording time (at 16-bit recording, one track). Within the hard drive, 2 GB of space (FAT 16 format) is automatically allocated as a USB drive that can be accessed directly from a computer by simply connecting the two devices with a common USB cable. By saving song data or .WAV files in this area, you can easily backup or restore song data, import or export .WAV files, or load system data. This makes it easy to move your songs into computer-based applications, and to even email song files via the Internet.
Internal CD-RW burner and more great features
An internal 16x CD-RW drive is contained in the D1200mkII, allowing you to backup and restore your songs and effect data, import/export .WAV data, and create your own audio CDs. The D1200mkII can synchronize with a PC or other external sequencers, recorders or rhythm machines that support MIDI clock or MTC. The D1200mkII includes many other great features like an Auto Save function, built-in auto chromatic tuner and a high-quality PCM tone generator that provides 96 different metronome patterns and 215 rhythm patterns.
