Features a 40-input, 14-bus digital mixer with extensive EQ capabilities. Each of the 32 channels has full 4-band parametric EQ with selectable hi and lo shelving. The submixer can accommodate 24 channels, each with hi and lo shelving EQ. A final 8-band EQ is available for recording to the Master Track.

    It also gives you 52 effects in 128 presets with up to 11 simultaneous, plus 8 insert effects, 2 master, and one final. Near-limitless editing capabilities. MTC and MMC send and receive. USB port.

    Power Production

    By FusionPowered

    from Manchester, NH

    This recorder has every feature you could want to record 99% of music in the studio or live. Adding the extra inputs and compressers is worthwhile, but bumps up the price a lot. The touch-view screen, with its very easy navigation, combined with the simplicity of the button layout make it just as easy, I think easier and faster, than using a VGA monitor and mouse on a Roland or a computer sequencer. It's true you can't drag and drop, but who cares? It is way quicker to click a button on the hardware or on the screen with your finger-while holding your guitar than having to use a mouse and scroll up to some hidden menu. You will NOT be disappointed by the lack of the big screen once you use it a couple of times. Also, the sound quality of the uncompressed tracks is excellent and can easily be used to create a finished CD project. I have worked in and owned professional recording studios and own pro computer recording gear as well - I only use the Korg now!

    By Digital Dude

    The best DAW available right now for the price! FX are superb, sound quality is incredible and its ease of use is amazing! I've owned several different systems over the years and the D32XD is #1 out of all of them! It's pro all the way in both features, looks, design, etc... you can't miss with this one! Has everything you need to make professional recordings! Buy a D32XD and prepare to be amazed! You will not be disappointed!!

    It works - options add value

    By Dwayne-y5-pc

    from Redlands, CA

    Very warm sound. Both hardware layout and touch screen is efficient. The options are a good idea. Analog compressors very warm. Well supported with downloadable upgrades. Automation not as robust as control surface like ProTools or Mackie, but gets the job done. Effects are very nice, some similar to plug-ins displays in ProTools and Sonar 4. Faster PC to Korg file transfers would be a plus. Have produced two albums on this so far with only a little PC DAW work at the end. Fast. Responsive. Low learning curve. Better than good but not excellent documentation. This is money well spent. The price is right and if you have work you'll pay for it in no time.

    killer deck

    dollar for dollar best in it's class. If you can get over not having a mouse and a flat screen, like the Roland, you will love this board. It's a better board than Roland and it is user friendly. Also, visually it shames the VS-2480.

    Stunning in looks and sound

    By DavetheRave

    from Manchester UK

    I am overly impressed with this machine - it looks the part, and sounds so sonically brilliant. Using the built in analog compression brings a beatiful warmth to the bass and a punch to my pianos, which I record with Rolands XP30 keyboard. I used to own a Korg M1, and it became a classic in its time - so will this machine. It is beautiful, smooth operation, lovely touch screen, and a very, very valuable asset to my recording studio. It has mix automation, warm rich effects, great mastering processor too. Ideally, i'd like the option of plugging in a monitor, this does let the side down slightly, however, i have no regrets whatsoever with this lovely unit. I love it!!

    revolutionary

    By Tmeister

    from Aspen, Co.

    Ridiculously incredible. About to buy one of these. Has full automation, full parametric eq, and high quality effects. 32 digital tracks and full mastering capability. The specs on this match a Neve $500,000 console. Any questions?

    Jaw Dropper

    By Roc-SfHIf

    from Jersey City, NJ

    With all of the other reviewers giving the XD such high praise you would think someone would come along and dis this baby. Well it ain't me. The one thing we all have to recognize now is that the way the manufacturers are playing the game, the "gotcha" is on subsequent purchases of the "gotta have" accessories, hence a little taken off on value. The unit itself is seamless in design and detail. Each one of my recordings is getting better as my familiarity with the XD progresses. Yup, I'm in love all over again. Will this baby be obsolete next year? IMHO probably a little, but it won't become extinct for quite some time. The substantial amount of features alone (not to mention the quality of audio reproduction) will keep this sleek little puppy among you're most played with of toys. Do it !

    Korg is one of the best recorders.

    By Marlo-E_BNc

    from Broken Arrow, OK

    The korg D32XD is one of the best recorders I've worked with. I tried other recorders: Roland, Yamaha, Akai, Boss, Tascam, etc. I must admit, I did like the Akai, but when I tried the D32, I knew I had to have it. Yes, it's very easy to use and musician friendly. The sound is awesome! I'm glad I chose this recorder. And oh yes, you will be hearing my produced hits soon from this board. Korg has done it again.
