Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 Computer Recording System

From Yamaha: - A computer-based recording system for all musical instruments! - The AUDIOGRAM Series from Yamaha has been carefully designed to make setting up your computer-based recording environment an absolute breeze. Coming as a complete kit, the AUDIOGRAM3 Computer Recording System bundles together a hardware interface that adds audio inputs and outputs to your computer, software for recording and producing music, and a USB cable for connecting the audio interface. - - This package will instantly turn your computer into a powerful yet intuitive tool for recording and editing audio from virtually any microphone or audio input device. What's more, setup is as easy as installing the bundled music-production application, CUBASE AI, on your computer and connecting the audio interface using the USB cable provided! You're then ready to connect instruments, microphones, CD players, MP3 players, and even old record or tape players for recording straight into CUBASE AI. - - Streamlined audio interface - - With a focus on simplicity and ease-of-use, the Yamaha AUDIOGRAM3 delivers a compact audio interface complete with both a mono and stereo input channel. Providing maximum flexibility for recording from almost any audio source, the mono input channel features a combo-type connector that can be set for microphone or line level input, while the stereo channel has both phone and RCA connectors. Of course, as this interface is USB bus-powered, it needs no external power supply and is an ideal solution for mobile applications. - - High-quality microphone preamp - - Also supporting microphone-level input, the AUDIOGRAM3 mono channel features a microphone preamp offering excellent audio quality. And should you want to connect a condenser microphone for higher-quality recordings, this channel can even be phantom powered. Regardless of what type of microphone you choose, however, the professionalmixer technologies integrated into this preamp will deliver perfect recordings every time. - - Direct connection of electric guitars and basses - - With one touch of the MIC/INST select button, you can set the sensitivity of the AUDIOGRAM3 mono channel for direct connection of either microphones or instruments. When set to instrument-level sensitivity, for example, you can directly record electric guitars, basses, and many other input devices. And all audio recorded using either of the MIC/INST settings can then be processed to give professional-sounding results using CUBASE AI's built-in effects. - - Stereo channel for practically all sound input devices - - With the AUDIOGRAM3, you also get a stereo input channel with both phone and RCA pin connectors that can be used to conveniently connect not only synthesizers, portable keyboards, and electronic pianos, but also a diversity of other sound sources such as CD players, MD players, portable audio players, and even old record and tape players. Providing maximum flexibility for many different recording situations, the AUDIOGRAM3 even supports simultaneous recording of the instrument or vocal on the mono channel with the audio being input via the stereo channel. For example, you could easily use this feature to record yourself playing along to a CD or MD backing track or singing to a karaoke track created on a portable keyboard. - - NOTE: Go to to download the recommended Yamaha USB-AUDIO Driver. - Features - Streamlined audio interface - High-quality microphone preamp - Provides direct connection of electric guitars and basses - Stereo channel for practically all sound input devices

Great interface for anyone just getting into computer-based recording

Comments I bought this Audiogram as a replacement for my Zoom MRS-1084. The controls and ins/outs are straightforward. You get two channels--channel one has a Neutrik connector for instruments or mics, and channel 2 has 1/4" line ins and rca ins. You also get stereo 1/4" and RCS outs, as well as a headphone jack. The top panel controls are: channel 1 level, +48v phantom power for condenser mics, channel 2 level, and a master level. The console has a USB interface for your computer. The version I got came with Cubase 5. While I like the Cubase software, and it's a nice incentive to pick up this entry-level console--I'll be using it with other software. The console has a pretty small footprint, so it doesn't take up much real estate on your desk--also makes it ideal for on-the-go recording with a laptop.

Liked about it I love the simplicity on the controls and connections.
Phantom power is always a plus.
I love having a headphone out for those late night sessions.
The addition of Cubase is nice.
The level controls are smooth.
I love the smaller size--I can easily use it with my laptop and move around the house or elsewhere with it.

Didn't like I know this is a barebones, entry-level console, but slider controls would be nice--at least for the master out. The workaround here, is that it's easy to manipulate levels in the software. There's really nothing that I dislike about it. I did my research first, and not only got what I expected--but was also pleasantly surprised with the ease of use. The toughest, or at least time consuming, part is registering the Cubase software and downloading the USB drivers.

Overall satisfaction:
