I don't think Yamaha or any other brand will make a 64 track recorder for the consumer market. When I google for "64 track yamaha' I get to see recorders that have 64 tracks INCLUDING virtuals, so 64 : 8 = 8 tracks playback simultaneously, so at the moment there aren't any real 64 track recorders.

There's a balance between upside and downside of either of two choices: a real hardware recorder versus software on a computer. Extra tracks will mean more hardware for a hardware recorder, so, more expensive. For a software recorder on a PC you'll only need more computing power where there already is plenty, and ever growing.

So, eventually, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that in the future, machines like the G have no right of existence. Software is much cheaper and the hardware (PC) is already there in most cases.

Sad but true depending on how you look at it. Having to slave two hardware 16 channel recorders together has it's minor problems as well. But I pretty much only record hardware on hardware , then transfer it to software for editing , mixdown and mastering with virtually no channel strip limitations. Because my desktop computer has firewire connectivity , it's too hard to physically move the setup to the hardware studio at the other end of the house.

My next laptop will need to have Firewire to be useful from a latency standpoint and be portable.

As far as a great portable digital recorder goes , I'll remain with my marriage of Sonar and 2-4416's and the old trusty G as a control surface and off premisis mobile recorder.

With both , I'm in Heavin.
