Product Description

Korg D16XD 16-Track Digital Recorder
With the brand new Xtended Definition series, Korg brings a whole set of professional features to its D-Series of digital recording studios. A stable of advanced mixing, editing, and recording features are complimented by a huge internal hard drive, a built-in CD-RW burner and a variety of performance enhancing options. Offering 96 kHz / 24-bit resolution, up to sixteen simultaneous record tracks and mix automation. The D16XD Digital Recording Studio is equipped to bring your creative ideas to life.

Brilliant Ergonomic Design
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 a wealth of 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 realtime access to the Effects parameters. Similar dedicated knobs and buttons for the individual EQs and Sends are located to the right of the display.

Supreme Audio Quality
Xtended Definition means that this new recorder features uncompressed, 96 kHz / 24-bit audio recording. Resolutions of 48 kHz and 44.1 kHz (both at 24 and 16-bit depths) are also supported. Digital processing quality remains at high levels throughout 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.

Modular Input Design
Eight XLR jacks, each with individual phantom power supply, only hint at the input possibilities. Eight 1/4 in. 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 front panel offers a dedicated guitar input.

Tracks Galore
The D16XD support up to 16 tracks of simultaneous recording and playback.* 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!
*AIB-8 required.

Mixer Madness
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 eight band fully parametric EQ is available when recording to the 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 & 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. 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 effects programs are based on Korg's highly acclaimed REMS modeling technology. Footswitch and footpedal jacks on the front panel allow you to actually play and interact with the effects in real time.

Keep the Beat
As a metronome reference or to help you build up a track, the D16XD contains a library of over 200 PCM rhythm patterns. Tempo maps allow you to preset tempo (and pattern) changes at any point in the song. By tapping on the beat - or at the start of each measure - you can use Tap Tempo to control the tempo manually.

Limitless Editing Abilities
Track editing is raised to new heights in these Xtended Definition digital recorders. 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 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.

Put It All Together
After you've recorded to your heart's content, burn your creation to CD 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/P DIF optical connectors for digital input and output. A two GB 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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (69 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great unit, Just can't beat it!!!"
Sound: The sound quality is excellent, best I have heard in this price range. Having the analog compressors on the input channels really helps. I actually dumped tracks from my 1880 onto this unit and those tracks are sounding much better through this unit. Feature: Some of the features I like are the usb port to dump either backup files or the exporting or importing of wave files. The tilt up LCD screen is also nice as you can change the angle of the screen. The touch screen is also very nice. It makes maneuvering through the function a breeze. However they have also added some knobs for some features like panning and tweaking effects and EQ that help make this unit enjoyable. Quality: Overall the construction of the unit is excellent. Much more steel than plastic, which of course makes the unit a bit heavier. That kind of puts a damper on those who want to travel with the unit.So it is suggested that if you plan to travel with the unit, contact a case supplier that will custom build one for you. My only other pet peave with the unit is the CDRW drive. The drive is use is the type that is used on Laptops. These type of CDR Drive are not very sturdy and I do worry about how long the CDR will last.It would have rather seen the installation of a stand CDR drive similar to the one used in their D1600 model. Value: Although you can find 16 track Digital Workstations cheaper than this. You can not find units of this quality and with the type of feature that this unit has. Manufacturer Support: Have not deqlt with the compay yet. Overall: Features , Sound Quality , and overall ease of use makes this a must get for anyone looking for a good project digital studio.

"AWESOME STUFF"
Sound: Crystal clear playback. You can just hear the difference a 24-bit 96khz mix sounds. The transport controls take you from A to B virtually instantaneously. The brushed aliminium surface is pleasing to the eye and feels professional. This machine, is professional. I sit hear and listen back to an awesome mix, held together with quality compression, and smooth automation Feature: The product came with no accessories, but for the value for money means this is no issue. Quality: This is professional quality. The effects are very good, but obviously, if you can afford outboard, or software effects, do this as well, also a PC is ideal for exchanging .WAV files back and forth. The structure and sturdiness of this unit make it a steal at the price - and the best digital recorder i've heard this side of the big protools systems!! Value: Apsolutely 10 out of 10. Warm sounding, apsolute clarity of sound, beautfiul. Manufacturer Support: Korg.co.uk/Korg.usa - are great, explain the system well in the manual documentation, provide clear instructions on installing updates etc.. The Wow Factor: Very sexy, orgasmic. Overall: I suppose if you could plug a monitor in it would be a nice touch.
