Yamaha AudioGram recording

Yamaha has begun shipping its latest computer recording systems, the AudioGram 3 and AudioGram 6. Both devices offer mic and line inputs and connect to the computer via USB. Various connections are provided, including XLR, 1/4 inch instrument, 1/8 inch headphone, and RCA jacks. Both devices integrate a preamp when using mic inputs and provide 48-V phantom power as needed for condenser microphones. AudioGram 3 features both a mono input that can be used for a mic or instrument, and a stereo channel for connecting line level sources.

AudioGram 6 offers two stereo inputs and two switchable mono inputs. The levels and gain of each channel are adjustable, with additional compressor controls for the two mono channels for recording acoustic instruments or vocals. Volume can be independently adjusted for the headphone monitors and master output to the computer.

The devices do not require external A/C adapters, instead they take power from the USB connection. Cubase AI4 software is bundled with each, offering 48 audio tracks and 64 midi tracks for recording. VST plug-ins and VSTi instruments are both supported, along with both Mac and Windows operating systems. AudioGram 3 and AudioGram 6 are available now, with prices of $150 and $200, respectively.
