Korg released the D3200 digital recording studio, the latest addition to its D Series line. Up to 12 tracks can be recorded at once, allowing a band to be recorded in a single pass. The D3200 provides up to 32 tracks of digital audio playback at 16- or 24-bit resolution at sample rates of either 44.1 or 48 kHz.
Two new Korg exclusives—a 4x4 Knob Matrix of assignable real-time control knobs and ClickPoint, a new three-axis fingertip navigation tool—provide quick and intuitive operation. In addition, a high-resolution 320x240-pixel tilt-up LCD provides a clear icon-driven display that uses four-level gray-scale shading and backlit illumination.
In addition, 100 scene memories provide snapshot automation. Digital editing capabilities are included for crafting, fine tuning and arranging audio. Eleven high-quality 56-bit effects (eight insert, two master and one final) are available simultaneously, using 52 effects algorithms, including Korg's proprietary REMS modeling technology.
The Korg D3200 will be available in August at a U.S. MSRP of $1,799.
