Hello
I have the AW16G and would like to record the tacks with this unit but would like to do the final mix and editing in Cubase on my Mac. Is there a way to get one file (with all tracks of a song) from the AW16G which I could then import to Cubase?

Welcome John. You can export all your .wav files from the G onto a CDR and then load them into Cubase on the computer. Check out the export function in the manual or do a search here.

Thank you for the reply. So the only way is to export 1 track at a time as a .wav to the CDR then import each track separately to Cubase? Is there not way to export the whole song (and all it's tracks) as 1 file that I could import to Cubase?

As I recall, there is a function to burn all 16 of the current tracks ( no virtuals, no mix parameters) and then have them available to load on to a computer. I own a 1600 now (has a USB connection), but I'm sure someone wil be along to confirm my thought, or set us both straight.

Hi John, welcome to the forum. I'm glad to see your account is working now.

You can't import one single file in cubase. There are two ways to store a complete project including all tracks and effects settings in one file: an AW16G backup or a 2816 backup. The latter can be opened using the AWextract tool that you can download from our docs page: http://docs.dijonstock.com. That will give you WAV files, so in the end there is not really a difference with exporting tracks to WAV in the first place. By the way, you can export all of your tracks to WAV in one go: at the track selector, select "all".

Hope this helps.

Hello exporters,

My question is a shade different from the current thread but is related.

Does anyone know how the quality of transfer will be if I export by playing via the optical out from the G to the optical 1/8 inch input on my laptop, as it records the input signal in Logic Express. I'm assuming there is zero degradation but I would love a confirmation please. (to know that I don't need to spend on an external sound card just for this purpose)

Thanks

if my mind serves me correctly, I don't think it can be done, but someone will come along with the proper advice and probably correct me :oops:

It's a digital transfer. Theoretically it should be exactly what's on the AW16G hard drive that is received at the other end.

You can only output digitally a stereo track. If you want to transfer individual tracks, you'd have to play each track separately (all others muted). Then you end up with a problem of syncing the individual tracks on your PC multitrack editing program. Put some sort of a "click" at the start of all tracks in the same place (time wise) so you can visually align them after transfer.

See page 169 in the manual for digital output.
