Overview of the effects
On the D1600, you can use up to eight insert effects
that can be inserted into an analog input or mixer chan-
nel, two master effects that can be applied to the send
from each channel, and a ﬁnal effect that can be
applied to master LR as the last stage. Each of these
effects are independent, meaning that you can use a
maximum of eleven effect programs simultaneously.
• Effect algorithms: total of 98
• Effect programs:
Preset effects contain effect programs created by profes-
sional musicians and studio engineers.
User effects can store your own effect programs that
you created by editing a preset effect.
It is not possible to rewrite a preset effect program.
1. Insert effects
The insert effects can be inserted into an analog input
or mixer channel, to apply an effect to the analog input
signal or playback track. Effects can also be applied to a
built-in rhythm sound that is input to a mixer channel.
There are four types of insert effects, as described
below. The available effect programs will depend on
the effect type you select. ( p.105, 113)
• 1 in 2 out x 2, 1 in 1 out x 2 (input only)
These are mono-in/stereo-out or mono-out effect
chains consisting of three to ﬁve effects. Two of these
chains can be used. These are ideal for adding spa-
ciousness to a lead guitar or vocal.
• 2 in 2 out x 2
These are stereo-in/stereo-out effects such as reverb,
chorus, and delay. Two such effects can be used
simultaneously. These are ideal for stereo-input
sources such as keyboard.
• 1 in 1 out x 4
These are mono-in/mono-out effect chains consist-
ing of two effects. Four such effects can be used
simultaneously. These are ideal for sources whose
stereo location is ﬁxed, such as rhythm guitar.
• 1 in 1 out x 8
Up to eight mono-in/mono-out effects can be used.
This is ideal for sounds with a ﬁxed pan location,
such as drums.
The effect type selection is made in [INSERT
EFFECT] "InsAss" tab page "SelectEffType."
