The Yamaha AW16GCDHD is a multi-track digital mixer and recorder that is designed to be used for home studios as well as for live recording. Yamaha worked to make this recorder easy to use with it's very intuitive user interface.

It allows you to record::Mix::Edit and the Burn your final CD all in one simple to use machine. It has 8 inputs that can be recorded onto 16 digital tracks and comes with an internal 20Gig Hard Drive (2.5" IDE laptop).

They've added a Quick Rec function that allows you to assign analog input to digital tracks using a graphical interface rather than a text based interface. This really helps with navigation and overall speed of editing.

The unit features 8 XLR/LINE inputs and one HI-Impedance Guitar input (1/4" Instrument Cable). Two of the XLR inputs come with phantom power so you can connect condenser and other powered microphones to the AW16G. It also has a S/PDIF digital input/output to allow you to connect to other machines (DAT, MiniDisc, and CD burners or to your computer. The Guitar Input also has guitar amp modelling built-in so you don't have to have your complete set up to work on the idea of the song.
