Yamaha CBX-D3.

Postby Atarieterno » Tue Sep 04, 2018 11:43 am

A friend has a DeLorean DMC-12 and I've traveled with him in the time, to go to a musical instrument store in 1994 and buy there a totally new Yamaha CBX-D3.

Obviously the introduction is a joke, but the CBX-D3 is serious: I have found a complete package, totally new, that has been stored for 24 years. Now I have two CBX-D3 to chain and get 8 tracks of audio recording with the ST series (or TT), to rival his older brother the Falcon.
Advantages: it sounds better than the Falcon and has multiple inputs and outputs (the Falcon needs SoundPool add-ons for this).
Disadvantages: CBX use version 1.1 of Cubase Audio, obviously more primitive than Cubase Audio Falcon with faders, vumeters and more on-screen audio controls (with v1.1 you have to look at the hardware device).

Warning: it is forbidden to talk about Atari and Yamaha in front of my wife.

I found it in this store:
http://www.kemp-osnabrueck.de/

The people who work there are very efficient and pleasant. They have very good prices, I came to them almost by chance, I also play the clarinet and I was looking for German Rohrblatt (tongue).

That is quite cool, especially brand new, good find. I got one pretty recently, not brand new, and a DMA to SCSI II. Maybe I will set it up, not sure, I don't really need to as I prefer the separate digital multitrack route, but an extra option it's there. CBX-D5 is cool, but I wish they put that in a 2U rack design, just takes up desk space. The good thing about the CBX-D3, it's rackable.
