compromises when it
comes to equalization or
dynamics processing: in
TRACK - VIEW
addition to extremely
versatile 4-band
equalization, you have

Acclaimed Yamaha Effects for Recording,
Mixing and Mastering
You’ll find Yamaha digital signal processing gear in most of the best
studios around the world … and you’ll find it in the AW1600. There’s
no need for external effects processors when you have a stunning
range of top-class effects built right in! In fact there are two
independent effect processors with corresponding sends and returns
so you’ll have enough processing power on hand for just about any
situation. In addition to a large selection of reverb, delay, modulation,
and pitch type effects, the AW1600 include an outstanding range of
effects designed specifically for instruments and vocals. There are
amp-simulator based guitar effects complete with speaker simulation
that let you get great guitar sound without having to actually mic a
guitar amplifier. Acoustic guitar hasn’t been forgotten, either. You
also have effects designed specifically to give you superior bass and
vocal sound by simply recalling and tweaking the appropriate preset.
The AW2400 also includes
a range of Mastering
Effects that provide
compression and limiting
presets that can help to
bring the sound of your
overall mix up to
professional level prior to
burning your tracks to CD.

Easy-to-use Interface
with Yamaha Selected Channel Concept
A thoughtful interface built around a 240 x 64 dot backlit LCD
display panel makes recording and mixing with the AW1600 a
smooth, efficient operation. Quick navigation keys take you to the
functions and displays you need immediately, and a comprehensive
complement of control keys and encoders gives you the
immediacy of hands-on control where you need it most. The same
Selected Channel concept that is at heart of Yamaha’s industryleading digital live mixers and production consoles makes the
AW1600 easy to learn and intuitive to use.
The interface also includes large transport keys for sure transport
operation, and a data
entry
section
that
includes a jog/data dial for
fast, efficient data entry.
Easy Rec Routing
From Song to CD In One Unit
Quick Loop Sampler
When you’re ready to
release your musical
masterpieces to the
world at large you can
burn them directly to
CD
right
in
the
AW1600. The AW1600
features a built-in highperformance CD-RW
drive that can be used to
create audio CDs that
will play on any standard
CD player, or you can
use it to make CD data
backups of your song
data so that it can be
reloaded and remixed or
edited at any time.
The AW1600 has a built-in pad-type sampler that delivers the same
high audio quality as the recorder section. You can assign sixteen
stereo waveforms to the
four pads using the
sample banks, or load
audio tracks from the
SAMPLE - MEMORY
hard disk or WAV files
from a CD-ROM. The
timing at which each pad
is played can be recorded
SAMPLE - LIBRARY
on a dedicated “pad
track,” and later edited
for fine control. The
AW1600 comes with a
library of over 250
SAMPLE - SET UP
premegabytes
of
recorded drum phrases
and sound effects that
can be assigned to pads
SAMPLE - WAV IMP
– a fast, easy way to
create rhythm and backing
tracks for practice or as
a basis for original

Pitch Fix for Pitch-perfect Vocal Tracks
If a song has vocals, the vocals are the song. You’ll undoubtedly
want the vocal track to sound as good as it can possibly be. The
AW1600 Pitch Fix function means that the occasional off note
won’t mean you’ll have to discard an otherwise excellent track.
Pitch Fix can effectively “repair” notes that are a bit sharp or flat
without adding any telltale digital artifacts.
Versatile I/O
MIDI Remote Control
While many integrated audio workstations still only provide XLR
input connectors on two or four inputs, the AW1600 provides a
full complement of eight balanced XLR connectors for microphone
or line input, as well as eight TRS phone jacks for either balanced or
unbalanced line input. The XLR and TRS phone jack inputs are
provided in the form of compact “combo connectors.”
The AW1600 integrates easily with MIDI gear, too. It allows full
parameter control via MIDI commands, so you can record scene
changes as well as control changes from the AW1600 to a MIDI
sequencer, for example, and then reproduce the recorded
operations precisely when the sequence is played back. If you’ll be
using the AW1600 with MIDI gear such as a Yamaha MOTIF ES
series synthesizer, the AW1600 includes a number of control
“templates” that instantly set it up for convenient remote controls
from the synthesizer’s keys and encoders.
QUICK LOOP SAMPLER
System Examples
Quick Sound Clips
PITCH FIX
Whenever musical inspiration strikes you can quickly record musical
“memos” or samples for later use using the AW1600 Sound Clip
function. Sound clips are an ideal way to quickly capture ideas for a
song or arrangement, or
to create simple
accompaniment parts for
practice.
SOUND CLIP
The Computer Connection
Standard WAV files can be rapidly and reliably transferred back
and forth between the AW1600 and a USB-equipped personal
computer using the AW1600’s fast USB 2.0 interface. You can
back up audio data from the AW1600 directly to computer and
import audio files into the AW1600 from the computer. In
addition to the advanced file management capabilities that this
provides you could, for example, move files to the computer for
processing in a computer-based audio application and then move
them back to the
AW1600
for
final
mastering.
USB STORAGE
Streamlined AW1600 System
Switchable phantom power is provided for the XLR inputs so you
can use studio-grade phantom-powered condenser microphones in
order to capture superior sound right from the source. A Hi-Z
mono phone plug input lets guitarists plug directly into the
AW1600 in order to record directly via the superb amp simulator
effects provided. Direct digital stereo input and output capability is
provided via coaxial S/P DIF input and output connectors.
Independent monitor and phones output are also provided in
addition to the main stereo outs.
The AW1600 is designed for ease and portability. And since it
features eight XLR/TRS combo inputs you can connect multiple
microphone and instrument sources to handle a wide variety of
recording situations. There’s even a Hi-Z input for direct input of
a guitar or bass.
Mics 1~ 7

4-band EQ & Dynamics On
Every Input & Track
Although some level of EQ
capability on every track has
come to be expected, there
was a time – not so long ago –
when not even large mixing
consoles in multi-million-dollar
recording studios offered
compression and gating on
every channel. With the
AW2400 you have just that: in
addition to extremely versatile
4-band equalization, you have
independent compression and
gating capability on every single
input channel and recorder
track for total dynamics
control over your mixes.
CHANNEL VIEW
For 16-bit recording and playback the AW2400 recorder section
offers a total of 24 tracks, or 12 tracks for 24-bit recording and
playback. You also have 8 virtual tracks per physical track – that’s 26
(24 + stereo) x 8 in 16-bit mode or 14 (12 + stereo) x 8 in 24-bit
mode) – that provide plenty of capacity for alternate takes or
arrangements. Any of the mixer’s inputs can be easily patched to any
of the recorder’s tracks for maximum recording flexibility. When
the TRACK 1~12 or 13~16 mix layer is selected the faders adjust
playback level from recorder tracks 1~12 or 13~16, respectively.

industry-leading digital live mixers and
production consoles makes the AW2400
easy to learn and intuitive to use.
There’s even a numeric keypad for fast
numeric entry and location, and large
transport keys for sure transport operation,
and a data entry section that includes a
jog/data dial for fast, efficient data entry.
RECORD DIRECT
Scene Memory
From Song to CD In One Unit
Once you’ve recorded, mixed and mastered your musical
creations you can burn them directly to CD right in the AW2400.
The AW2400 features a built-in high-performance CD-RW drive
that can be used to create
audio CDs that will play on
any standard CD player, or
you can use it to make CD
data backups of your song data
so that it can be reloaded and
remixed or edited at any time.
The AW2400 makes it easy to setup multiple mixes for each song
and recall them as required. Up to 99 “scenes” containing all mix,
effect, and other parameters
for all channels can be stored
for each song. Stored scenes
can be recalled at any time via
the AW2400 panel controls,
MIDI
program
change
commands, or Automix events.

Pitch Fix for Pitch-perfect Vocal Tracks
If a song has vocals, you’ll
undoubtedly want the vocal
track to sound as good as you
can possibly make it. Since
singers are human the occasional
off note is to be expected, but
with the AW2400 Pitch Fix
PITCH FIX
function they won’t mean you’ll
have to discard an otherwise
excellent track. Pitch Fix can effectively “repair” notes that are a bit
sharp or flat without adding any telltale digital artifacts.
Advanced Automix Capability
Complex mixes can require more fader moves, channel switching and
other operations than one pair of hands can handle. The AW2400
Automix function provides a powerful solution. Automix allows fader,
channel switch, pan, EQ, AUX send, effect send, and scene/library
recall operations to be recorded and played back in real time. You
can even record operations one
at a time, “overdub” style. With
this advanced feature complex
mix and bounce operations can
be accurately reproduced as
many times as necessary. And
Automix data can be edited in
detail for no-compromise
AUTMIX
control precision.
Whenever you need to quickly
record a musical “memo” or
sample for later use, the
AW2400 Sound Clip function is
ready to roll. Sound clips are an
ideal way to quickly capture ideas
for a song or arrangement, or to
create simple accompaniment
parts for practice.
MIDI Remote Control
The AW2400 features a fast
USB 2.0 interface that can be
connected to a USB-equipped
personal computer to allow
standard WAV files to be
transferred back and forth.
You can back up audio data
from the AW2400 directly to
USB STORAGE
computer and import audio
files into the AW2400 from the computer. In addition to
providing advanced file management capabilities this means you
could, for example, move files to the computer for processing in a
computer-based audio application and then move them back to
the AW2400 for final mastering.
The AW2400 allows full
parameter control via MIDI
commands, so you can record
scene changes as well as
control changes from the
AW2400 to a MIDI sequencer,
for example, and then
reproduce the recorded
REMOTE 1
operations precisely when the
sequence is played back. If you’ll be using the AW2400 with MIDI
gear such as a Yamaha MOTIF ES series synthesizer, the AW2400
includes a number of control “templates” that instantly set it up for
convenient remote controls from the synth’s keys and encoders.
CD WRITE
Serious I/O
Unlike many all-in-one audio workstations the AW2400 provides
a full complement of eight balanced XLR connectors for
microphone or line input, as well as eight TRS phone jacks for
either balanced or unbalanced line input.
Switchable phantom power is provided for the XLR inputs so you
can use studio-grade phantom-powered condenser microphones
in order to capture superior sound right from the source. Insert
patch points on inputs 1 and 2 allow insertion of external
processing gear. Direct digital stereo input and output capability is
provided via coaxial S/P DIF
input and output connectors.
In addition to the main stereo
and monitor outputs, the
AW2400 also features four
OMNI OUT connectors that
can be assigned to output
signals from just about
anywhere in the system for
additional
signal
feeds
wherever they might be
required. When you need
more inputs and/or outputs –
analog or digital – you have an
excellent range of Yamaha
Mini-YGDAI expansion cards
from which to choose.
The Computer Connection
System Examples
Band Recording
AW + Computer Production
Since the AW2400 allows simultaneous recording of up to 16
tracks with an optional mini-YGDAI I/O card installed, it is an
ideal choice for making one-take band recordings. And once the
band is recorded, you can use it’s advanced mixing capabilities and
effects to mix, master, and burn directly to CD!
All you need to connect to a personal computer is a single USB
cable. Once connected you can use the computer to manage and
back up your audio files and projects, and even use computerbased audio editors for additional production control. You can
even control the AW2400 remotely from the computer.
