Korg D32XD

Xtended Definition Digital Studio w/CD Burning - 32 Track Digital Recorder with Moving Faders

Product Code: 20900

Authorized Korg Dealer
We're sorry, this product is no longer available.

With the brand new Xtended Definition series, Korg brings a whole set of professional features to its D-Series of digital recording studios. A stable of advanced mixing, editing, and recording features are complimented by a huge internal hard drive, a built-in CD-RW burner and a variety of performance enhancing options. Offering 96 kHz / 24 bit resolution, up to sixteen simultaneous record tracks, mix automation and flying faders, the D32XD Digital Recording Studio is equipped to bring your creative ideas to life.

Brilliant Ergonomic Design
The D32XD is designed to provide unparalleled ease of use, the highest quality audio recording and processing available – and to look good doing it. The clean, stylish lines and uncluttered control surface are preserved thanks to the huge TouchView display that organizes a wealth of parameters and controls into easily accessed on-screen menus. This new display features enhanced resolution, a four-tone gray scale, and tilts up for easy viewing. The improvements to the display make it ideal for audio editing functions. Four dedicated knobs below the display provide permanent realtime access to the Effects parameters. Similar dedicated knobs and buttons for the individual EQs and Sends are located to the right of the display. And, flying faders and dynamic automation are the icing on the cake.

Supreme Audio Quality
Xtended Definition means this new recorder features uncompressed, 96 kHz / 24-bit audio recording. Resolutions of 48 kHz and 44.1 kHz (both at 24 and 16 bit depths) are also supported. Digital processing quality remains at high levels throughout the mixer, effect and output stages. But digital excellence is not the end of the story. The D32XD also provides eight channels of fully programmable analog compression to the inputs, delivering a richness of tone and dynamic processing that cannot be duplicated by digital technology.

Modular Input Design
Eight XLR jacks, each with individual phantom power supply, only hint at the input possibilities. Eight 1/4” balanced jacks are also provided. Each input features a variable trim knob and a 24dB pad to accommodate almost any input source. By adding the optional eight channel analog input board (AIB-8) the D32XD can reach its full potential of 16 inputs. The optional analog compressor board (ACB-8) provides the same high quality compression to these extra inputs. For added convenience, the front panel offers a dedicated guitar input.

Tracks Galore
The D32XD supports up to 16 tracks of simultaneous recording* and provides 32-track playback. Each track contains eight virtual tracks. New to the Xtended Definition series is a Master Track dedicated to creating your final stereo mix. The Master Track also features 8 virtual tracks, allowing you to make many alternate mixes in the same song. Just in case you’re curious, that comes out to 272 total tracks for the D32XD. Wow!

Mixer Madness
The D32XD features a 56 input, 14 buss digital mixer with extensive EQ capabilities. Each recorder channel (32) features a full four-band parametric EQ with selectable hi and low shelving. The submixer inputs can accommodate 24 channels, each with hi and low shelving EQ, and a final eight band fully parametric EQ is available when recording to the Master Track. Channel pairing is also available with multiple pan control algorithms. Stereo Master, Monitor, Solo and Cue outputs, plus two internal effect busses and four aux busses round out the Mixer section.

Automation & Navigation
To accommodate 32 channels of playback using 16 faders, the D32XD employs dynamic automation to record and playback all of your fader moves. Motorized “flying” faders on the D32XD will replay all the fader moves as the song plays – you’ll actually see the faders move! The mixer sections of the D32XD can store 100 different mixer “scenes” and recall them automatically during playback. The TouchView screen can display the settings of each mixer scene. Locate points – six in all – are used to define edit points and loop points. An additional 100 “Marks” can be used to auto-locate back to any point in a song. You can even name each of the Marks to help remind you what part of your song they are pointing to.
In Depth
Effects by the Boatload
The D32XD is a veritable wellspring of effect processing power. Up to twenty-seven high quality digital effects are available simultaneously on the D32XD – 24 Insert Effects, two Master Effects (stereo) and one Final Effect (stereo). The icon driven display and dedicated control knobs combine to make effect routing, selection and editing a breeze. A palette of 52 effect types produces 128 preset effect program, and 128 user programmable effect programs. The effects programs are based on Korg’s highly acclaimed REMS modeling technology. Footswitch and footpedal jacks on the front panel allow you to actually play and interact with the effects in real time.

Keep the Beat
As a metronome reference or to help you build up a track, the D32XD contains a library of over 200 PCM rhythm patterns. Tempo maps allow you to preset tempo (and pattern) changes at any point in the song. By tapping on the beat – or at the start of each measure – you can use Tap Tempo to control the tempo manually.

Limitless Editing Abilities
Track editing is raised to new heights in these Xtended Definition digital recorders. You can swap, delete, move, bounce, normalize, copy, reverse – even fade tracks in or out. Expansion and compression tools allow you to shrink or stretch a track to fit into a specific time, with either fixed or variable pitch. Optimize commands include deleting recorded silent areas to recover valuable recording time, or removing punch in/out artifacts. You can also import and export track data as .WAV format audio files, with internal digital rate conversion, include 24 to 16 bit dithering. Once again, the huge TouchView display comes to the rescue, making it easy to zoom in on the displayed audio data and set your edit points with great accuracy. Change your mind? All edits (up to the last sixteen) can be reversed using the Undo command.

Put It All Together
After you’ve recorded to your heart’s content, burn your creation to CD and give it a listen. Feeling prolific? Arrange multiple songs in order, specify the gap time between songs, and burn your CD all at once using the Album Project feature. Mark points can be used to create track indexes when burning a continuous performance (a live concert for example) to CD.

Studio Friendly
Designed to be at home in an increasingly digital studio environment, the D32XD recorder comes equipped with S/P DIF optical connectors for digital input and output. A two GB area of the internal hard drive is designated as the USB drive, which can be recognized by a computer connected to the D32XD’s USB port for easy file sharing. An additional eight channels of digital I/O are available in ADAT light-pipe format by adding the optional Digital Interface Board (DIB-8). This option also includes a digital word clock input and output. Transport, fader movement, effect settings and other controls changes can be sent and received via MIDI. The D32XD can also send and receive MIDI Time Code (MTC) and MIDI Machine Control (MMC) commands and send MIDI Clock. Multiple frame rates are supported for MTC sync.
