Korg launches D4 – New 4 track recorder

The D-series of KORG, the epitome of audio quality and intuitive operation, got a new member to this productline. The D4 digital recorder is hardly larger than a VHS cassette but offers nevertheless professional effects, a rhythm function and a tuner. With five real time automatic controllers you have access to nearly all functions, all effects in best “REMS” quality. The recording and editing functions are quite sublime. And with the USB connection you can transfer songs and other data problem-free to your computer. With the D4 we can state clearly: It is mall, but be aware! It sure can handle your creativity!

Measuring only 191 (W) x 145 (D) x 41 (H) mm / 7.52″ (W) x 5.71″ (D) x 1.61″ (H), Korg’s all-new D4 provides 4-track recording in a compact package. You can plug in mic or guitar or use the built-in mic to record audio, one or two tracks at a time, to a CompactFlash removeable media card. Korg’s onboard REMS effects and amp simulations an inbuilt tuner and a bunch of onboard rhythm patterns should also make the D4 a great practice tool for guitar players.
