OVERVIEW

Affordable 32-track digital studio delivers professional quality!

KORG's D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio provides up to 32 tracks of simultaneous playback and up to 12 tracks of simultaneous analog recording, plus 2 via S/PDIF and 2 using the included interactive Session Drums which allows you to easily create a realistic and natural drum track for your entire song, simply by tweaking a few knobs. The D3200 provides 16- and 24-bit uncompressed 44.1 or 48kHz recording and playback. By taking advantage of the 8 virtual tracks provided for each track, you can record a total of up to 272 tracks. In 24-bit mode, the digital data passing through the fader and EQ is recorded onto the internal 80GB hard drive as 32-bit data, ensuring even higher recording and playback quality. The internal processor uses 64-bit precision (maximum 69-bit), delivering professional-level audio quality.

With Korg's interactive Session Drums, your own studio drummer is always available.

Create dynamic drum tracks quickly and easily with the D3200's built-in Session Drums feature. Using KORG's exclusive Knob Matrix, simply twist the Group and Session knobs to choose the overall musical style and use the Variation knob to select a pattern appropriate for your song. Breathe new life into your drum tracks by tweaking the Shuffle and Humanize knobs to produce subtle variations in the timing, accent, feel, and volume of each drum hit. You can even customize the rhythm sounds themselves. With Session Drums, create and record your original drum tracks without time-consuming programming and step-recording.

Sophisticated and versatile track editing tools.

Perform advanced and non-destructive track editing without impairing the high-quality sound with editing functions such as time expansion/compression, copy, erase, reverse, normalize, and fade. A learning noise reduction feature removes unwanted ambient noise without impairing the original sound!

Versatile input section to accommodate nearly any recording situation—including high channel-count live situations.

12 - 1/4" balanced inputs are teamed with 8 XLR inputs jacks featuring high-quality mic preamps and +48V phantom power. Each of the 8 phantom power supplies can be switched on/off independently, so you can mix and match your favorite condenser and dynamic mics to get the job done. The D3200 also features optical S/PDIF ins and outs and a dedicated guitar jack.

Powerful automated mixer section provides professional features and flexibility.

The D3200's mixer provides a total of 44 input channels (32 recorder channels and 12 sub-mixer channels). Fader, EQ, pan, and effect settings can be stored as a "scene," and up to 100 scenes can be saved and automatically recalled for each song, providing sophisticated automation. In addition, Dynamic Automation records and plays back individual fader and pan movements in real time, providing the freedom you need for creative mixing. Mixer parameters can also be controlled via MIDI.

An enhanced graphic display and interface provide fast, intuitive navigation.

The D3200 brings ease of operation to a new level, with fresh innovations such as the unique Knob Matrix and KORG's exclusive ClickPoint. The Knob Matrix provides 16 realtime control knobs laid out in a 4x4 arrangement that can be used simultaneously to edit a variety of parameters such as the Session Drums or the effect processors. It's a natural, analog-feeling interface. The 3-axis ClickPoint provides fingertip control that is much more immediate and satisfying than using a mouse or a track ball. ClickPoint can also be used as a jog/shuttle function when you're scrubbing through audio. The 320x240 pixel, 4-level grayscale display uses immediately understandable icons and provides visual feedback of the many Knob Matrix functions.

High-quality effects deliver professional sounding results.

The D3200's multiple effect processors use 56-bit internal processing to provide the highest audio quality. Instantly select from 128 effect programs created from 52 different effect algorithms.

Album CD Project and internal CDRW take your musical ideas to completion.

The D3200's built-in CDRW drive can be used to backup/restore songs and user data, to import WAV files, or to create finished audio CDs. When creating an audio CD, you can use the Album CD Project function to easily create a production-ready CD that specifies the song order and even the length of the gaps between songs. The internal hard drive can be partitioned so you can work on multiple album CD projects at once.

Computer friendly.

The D3200 automatically allocates part of its internal hard disk as a 2/4/8GB PC (USB) drive. This area can be used to import/export WAV data between the D3200 and a computer DAW program via USB, and can also be used to load system data. D3200 user data transferred to your PC can be easily e-mailed or exchanged over the internet. High-speed USB 2.0 is supported, so even large amounts of data can be transferred smoothly. In addition, back-up data created by other KORG D-series models can also be loaded.

In this day in age, it's easy to be driven to mix and master via sequencers on a computer. So, with that in mind, this unit fails. However, this unit is outstanding for tracking purposes, and unless you;re brainless with a computer sync, will easily let you go to your sequencer by uploading your tracks through a USB cord. The mic pres are really quiet, thought obviously not the best out there. The faders are sensitive, most of the unit is banked, so the channels, pan pots and effects are all based on the knob matrix and fader banks and everything is digitally automated (but not physically). If you buy this, treat it like you should treat any other piece of precision tools. Read the manual FIRST, before you touch the thing, then start getting used to automating, and without faiol, get a headphone amp, because it won't boost the signal enough to let your drummer hear the click.The Session drums aren't that special. There's too much button-clicking involved to make it anything but time-consuming. The one good thing about the Session Drums is the click track you can have out of it. You can also set it up to change tempos and time signatures, though I haven't done it yet. In terms of effects, the eq's aren't outstanding but they do their part, the delays and reverbs are on par, the compression isn't great, but the gates and limiters are. The only fault with the effects are you can only apply one effect per channel, then a master and final effect to put over the whole song. That limitation on the channels makes it appealing to route all the tracks to a sequencer and edit, effectualize and master outside the unit. The knob matrix is awesome, the automations (digital) work well, but the faders not being dedicated can get old. There's a jump/match function where you can move the fader and the unit won't move the digital fader until the physical fader is on the same level as the digital parameter. That goes for the pan pots too. That can be a great tool if you're switching you banks a lot, but if you're trying to level your song its easier to just switch to 'jump' mode and when you touch the fader it moves the channel to whereever you are. Another great beauty to this unit: 32 tracks, 12 at a time. with the right setup, you could record an entire band live with a few exceptions (though in reality it'd probably be better to wait on a few recordings because your XLR jacks would probably be taken up with just drums). Also, when you're finished recording the CD burning capabilities are pretty neat. You can set the gaps in between individual tracks and the burner is clean and fast.

Ponderous, difficult to use and understand. Keep your manual with you at all times. Very difficult to interface with your computer. I have to go through many screens to get simple tasks accomplished. When a friend and I tried to get it to interface with a computer, the instructions were nested - in other words, we were referred to other procedures on other pages several times. I think we had to jump three or four times and it still did not work. Instructions are often vague, misleading or incomplete. I have had mine for a year and a half and basically have been able to accomplish nothing. If anything, it has been an obstacle to creativity.The screen is way too small AND there is no contrast - think of a bad Macintosh monitor around 1990 or so. I MUST use reading glasses in order to use this unit. You have to adjust the contrast when you change screens because they are rendered such that the best setting for one screen is not always the best setting for another. The drum machine is near useless. You get fixed patterns which you cannot modify. You can change the volume of something (i.e., cowbell) but you cannot modify how the instrument is played. I continue to use my Alesis SR-16 instead.The effects and amp models, etc. are useless. You MUST go with your outboard equipment in order to get a decent sound.I don't like this new digital approach to faders. When you switch to another song, the current, physical position of a fader has nothing to do with how the channel is currently set. If the volume is too loud, you have to first move the fader to get the system's attention THEN bring the volume down. You can't just look at the board and get a feel for where the levels really are. The many annoyances and deficiencies really get in the way of accomplishing anything with this unit.

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

By using the available hz pure wav can be achieved, a higher quality than mp3. With the addition of a disc recorder a computer can then be used to convert the wav to cda. In use, I found this recorder perfect for synth work recording. Plenty of inputs available, allowing me to build my compositions, which is important when playing all the individual pieces, Bass etc.
A wonderful and overlooked top notch product.

mobile and inhouse recording

By airespeed productions

from los angeles

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

I own it, for 3 years. Had it repaired for functional probs 2 times. This time, for reasons I don't understand, I have to wait for it to "warm up" before the function buttons work. (rec. play, channel select, etc.)It's digital, there isn't anything inside to have to warm up up! Now I have to ship it for service and keep my fingers crossed that #1. it gets there o.k. #2. it won't cost an arm and a leg to repair. (seems it may be expensive) #3. it gets back o.k.I got it to record myself and others and now it's gonna be down for 7 - 10 days. I used a multi-tracreel to reel for 30 years and it seldom had to be repaired but the price and functionability sold me on this unit. I wish it was more reliable and had a bigger view screen. Maybe you'll have better luck with yours. For what you can do and for the $$$ it was worth it I guess . . . .

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

Have owned it for a about 2 years. I have a small home studio and it great. I record on the 3200 and with the usb port I export it to my PC using cubase to mix and master. The only down fall is the monitor screen is too small. If only it would have been designed with an option to hook it up to a larger monitor

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

I have owned my unit for about a year,and it is the best thing since sliced bread that I have ever used! Yea, the screen could use a little brighting,(then again I'm no spring chicken)and conserning the session drums, yes it is not a drum machine, but the ease of usage of whats there, plus the fact if you want to add more there are 32 tracks. This recorder has finally given me the opertunity to finish a project that began 40 years ago.

A teaching tool as well

By AmTwi StudiosKC

from Kansas City

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

Let me start out with the bottom line, if you want to learn how to record, or you are already seasoned enigineer and you can afford this machine, buy it. Right now. Don't think about it. Just buy it. If you are above the beginner level and are ready to get a pro piece of gear, you've found it. The manual I downloaded from Korg's website was one of the best I've encountered. It is very detailed and gives you exactly what you need to get started within 15 minutes. I don't think D3200 would be the best rig for the beginner. I cut my teeth on the old Portastudios and hung out in a lot of pro studios so I can move around on this thing fairly easily. As far as the learning features go, the preset eq's are a great way to get an idea as to where you may like to tailor your mixes. There are just so many great features on this thing. The session drums would be great for a solo guitar player with no band. You just have to be patient with it. No, it can't substitute for a live drummer, but for tracking its great. It has some killer latin grooves, electronic grooves or, as a drummer, I like to use the metronome. I hit the jackpot with mine on what I paid for it. But I can't mention that here. Just buy it people. Its everything you're looking for.

Recording made easy

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

I really love my korg 3200. I wasn't making much music cause I lost my band, now I'm making entire albums all by myself. It only takes a litte time to get used to and you can get going recording on it. No problem writing C.Ds. I still haven't even used all the features, like the session drums- I got it used so theres a lot I don't know about it.If you're thinking about buying it then buy it.

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

I have had mine for about a year now. I love it. It does take some time to get used to, being such a small monitor and all, which is my only complaint. but other than that you can not get better sounding stuff for this kind of money. The pre's are far better than you would expect. KORG did a great job on this one, hopefully one day they will offer an external monitor upgrade :)GET IT!!email me if you want a link to some of the stuff I have recorded with my band using the d3200.

Comments about Korg D3200 32-Track Digital Recording Studio:

This is a good unit. Took me some time to learn most of it & still have to go back to the manual.You can spend along time on 1 song if you use all the programs. But the end results are real good.Drum Sessions are ok to keep rythem.Only had 1 problem, the trim peak lights are lite up bright on chs. 1-12 and the headphones dont work. Can not record at all.Tried everything so back to the factory it goes.I will miss it.
