The AW16G and the AW1600 are, what, 98% identical. However the 1600 has a couple of features that the G does not have, like the inputs and pitch correction.

This is the place to go about subjects that are 1600-specific.

Uh, I can beg to differ, yes?

I looked at a virtual plethora of DAWs before writing the thousand dollar check for my 1600...Most of them were more expensive for the bang, and some of them, like the Boss?

I actually had the 16G bought before the 1600 had me backpeddaling. The salesguy @ ProSound was hardselling the 16G because his store wasn't allowed to sell the 1600 til they'd got rid of a bumper crop of 16Gs...So another store got my bidness...

I think if I were looking for a new DAW I'd go for the 1600 these days and the prices I've seen seem to be on a par with other similar machines, but as an upgrade to my existing AW16 it wouldn't be worth it to me.

Of course Eric! Welcome to the forum.

What were your reasons to upgrade from 16G to 1600?

Welcome to the forum.


Thanks Robbie. Nice to find a hands on support forum. The "official" AW1600 forum is ok, and they ARE knowledgeable, but I tend to gravitate to the guys (and gals) who are "out there, doin' that"... :twisted:

Aw jeece, fear of obsolescence mainly, I guess. The fact that electronical shit is constantly outdating itself prompted me to get the newest version...Pitch correction helped, as did the heftier hard disc...As far as the expanded input section goes, it doesn't really matter to me, as I record all by myself *s-s-sniff!* in my basement at home...sequenced drums, one or two tracks at a time, via a Mackie VLZ and some outboard stuff----ALTHOUGH...I also run an Alesis ADAT which I can run all my tracks individually to the 1600 simultaneously, which is appealing, as I have a lot of S-VHS media to back up...

I didn't actually buy the 16G, but had told my buddy the ProSound salesman that I'd take it, and was about to write the check before divine providence (my wife) stepped in and said; "Are you going to be happy with that thing, knowing that there's a bigger, better one?", to which I responded; "No, and now that you mention it, are you?... :wink: :roll: :shock:

Thanks for this forum. I think I'm buying a 1600 and will be here a lot.

Speaking of differences, it seems that USB connectivity and 24 bit resolution are huge difference to me.

Recording and monitoring in 24 bit is awsome.
I didn't think that there would be much difference but I was wrong.
Ok it has to go down to 16bit for mastering but working in 24 bit is great!
The only problem is that you are stuck with 8 tracks in 24 bit resolution.

As far as pitch correction, I havent really used it yet, I played around with it a bit but it sounded like you were using pitch correction :?:
Maybe it could be used more after practise to get a subtle correction. Probably overdid the effect. :D

yeah actually Autoharp Center had AW16's for 999.99 and the 1600 next to it for $1099 :roll:

My aw16g has pitch correction. Bought it in 03.
Use the function quite often for out of tune instruments.
Works fine for me, although I don't force much more than 5 cents of a change.

Yeah, but that's constant pitch alteration, not dynamic and therefore correcting every individual note by the amount needed. You can alter the pitch of an out-of tune instro, but you can't use it dynamically to correct an occasionally out-of-tune singer on the fly.

Is the 1600's pitch correction function constant or dynamic?
I could really clean up some bad vocals with it.

According to the manual you can choose a scale etc... so it seems to be dynamic, reacting only when a note does not come near enough to the intended one.

As far as I read it, you can't use it real-time though, just as an instrument for post-correction.

Yeah, the G's correction on a human voice, sliding the pitch towards the correct note, is pretty useless. The only time I've used it to perfection was on a constant note...the bass player hit a C when it should have been B#.

BUY A 1600!!!

The obvious differences are there as discussed previously, pitch shift, USB, inputs, however the most important difference is what's inside. The G has one main board, if the power supply goes out, you might as well buy a new G, the 00 on the other hand has separate boards for different fucntions. The power supply is a board all to it's own - a lot cheaper if you have problems. And the USB is great if you transfer a lot to your PC. AND one other thing the hard drive is a big one, the same as in many desktop PC's. On the other hand the G has a laptop HDD. I don't have a laptop but I do have a desktop, if I wanted I could easily take out the HDD on the 00 and install it in my PC (or IDE to USB external) and manipulate the music files in anyway I want. The 1600 is by far the better choice.

BUY A 1600!!!! --- Happy New Year ---

Whichever you have, the main thing to keep in mind is:

GO WRITE SOME MUSIC!!!!
