TESTED BY MICHAEL MOLENDA
KORG D32XD I’m one of those audio iconoclasts who will happily record on just about any media—from cassette to 2" reel-to-reel to ADAT to the craziest, plug-in bloated hard-disk workstation. In my world, it’s all good, and taking a nonchalant, Dean Martin-esque approach to sound quality keeps my mind focused on capturing transcendent performances. But what will transform me from Dino into Frank Sinatra at a full-on huff is a machine that cramps my creative endeavors with operational idiocies. The Korg D32XD ($3,750 retail/$2,999 street), however, is one of those marvelous wonder stations that will keep me humming “That’s Amore” as I’m blissfully cutting tracks. Everything needed to move a recording project from inception to CD-R release is housed in a relatively portable hardware mixing/control console. In addition to the basic goodies detailed in the “Specs” list, guitarists will be particularly delighted with the amp, cabinet, preamp, and mic models;
