Yamaha AW4416Yamaha AW4416CDRW Digital Audio Workstation, 16 track, 44 channel (incl. 12GB HD + optional CDRW drive)
Released February 2000.
Yamaha Corporation of America, an established leader in digital audio, launches a revolutionary product at Winter NAMM 2000, the AW4416 Professional Audio Workstation. Combining powerful technological innovations from its greatest products into one unique unit, the AW4416 records up to 16 tracks of true 24-bit digital audio and includes motorized faders with automation/snapshot capability, advanced sampling and DSP features, and much more. The AW4416 is scheduled for delivery in June, 2000.
"The AW4416 is truly a combination of some of Yamaha’s finest products," states Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager, Professional Audio. "This multi-function unit brings the ‘all-in-one’ concept to life with a level of quality, ease of use, number of on-board features and expandability options previously unavailable at any price point."
The AW4416 offers multiple storage options—including an internal hard drive and CD recorder, as well as a SCSI interface for data backup to an external drive.
As a digital mixer, the AW4416 contains full 32-bit DSP capabilities (similar to that of the Yamaha 02R), 44 fully-automated audio inputs (16 of which are from the internal hard drive), 17 motorized faders, four fader and mute groups, eight bus and eight aux sends plus stereo, and stereo cue busses. All 44 inputs—including eight analog and 16 digital inputs via optional interface cards—contain digital attenuators, 4-band full parametric EQ, and direct out assignment.
The rear panel contains eight 24-bit mic/line inputs, two of which are XLR with +48V phantom power and inserts, plus a high impedance input that will accept a guitar or other instrument, directly. Memory areas include scene, channel, EQ, dynamics and effects.
An inclusive 16-track recording system, complete with sampling, editing and mastering capabilities, retains true 24-bit, 48 kHz resolution without compression of any type. Two 32-bit on-board effects (including Yamaha’s acclaimed reverb) may be routed to any bus or input channel directly, or re-routed during recording to create layered effects.
For the first time, Yamaha engineers from different divisions have collaborated to bring together technology from both Professional Audio and Electronic Music. This is evident in the internal sampler, which accepts samples from a CD or internally recorded tracks, and allows extensive editing/looping capabilities. The user can trigger any of these samples from the two banks of eight available pads.
Two rear-mounted card slots allow any or all of the 16 tracks, inputs and assigned busses to be output in digital form for further processing or for transfer to external digital devices. These slots will also support future products from Yamaha and third party developers. A FLASH ROM operating system enables software upgrades to be loaded from CD or the Internet.
The AW4416 offers an optional CD-RW drive, which enables users to burn audio CDs (after mastering on the hard drive), load and/or backup data. This drive is installed in a front-mounted port for easy accessibility.
"Project studios, musicians and song writers, as well as those involved in pre-production and editing, should find that the AW4416 greatly enhances creativity and productivity," states John Schauer, product manager, Professional Audio. "Yamaha has created an affordably-priced, all-inclusive system that is extremely easy to use and lets you manage your project from start to finish."
