Full-featured digital multitracker from Yamaha that combines an 02R digital mixer with a hard drive and CD-RW to make a multitrack recorder. The SW4416 is a complex & capable beast which requires some learning & appreciation. The best description I’ve seen is in the tips article in Sound on Sound – see the Links tab for a a link to the article

“First off, it’s incredibly flexible. There are sampling pads, built in effects, a track display, several levels of undo and more. In addition, it’s a digital hard disk based mixer / recorder with a built in SCSI CD burner. The sound quality is incredible”

“The onboard recording functions are very straightforward and it is possible to record all sixteen tracks simultaneously or overdub tracks as needed”

“The built-in automix system allows total automation of the motorized faders, equalizers, dynamics and effect sends on any channel, including the master fader”
