Product Description

Yamaha 02R96VCM

 Digital Recording Console Version 2 features 56 input channels and 18 mixing busses. Yamaha 02R96VCM is backed by the impressive processing power of a custom Yamaha DSP7 LSI and offers the same array of robust channel functions as the DM2000 on its inputs and outputs. Yamaha 02R96VCM's "selected channel" system fuses the controllability of a digital mixer with the feel of an analog desk for fast, intuitive operation when you need it. The analog input stages on the 02R96VCM feature head amps descended from those of the DM2000, developed with the input of engineers from around the world to provide transparent sound that's perfect for the professional domain.

The Yamaha 02R96VCM console offers 5 plug-in packages that give you both space and creativity in the production workplace. Yamaha 02R96VCM also boasts the outstanding REV-X reverb algorithm introduced in the SPX2000. What's more, Yamaha 02R96VCM comes equipped with iSSP technology that makes creating realistic sound fields easy, giving you functionality within the console that would otherwise require outboard effects.

The 02R96VCM also offers a high degree of integration with Digital Audio Workstations, and is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh versions of Studio Manager Version 2, allowing your PC and console to work together seamlessly. Certified to the global THX pm3 standard for surround equipment, Yamaha 02R96VCM features four MY card slots, whose open architecture design provides compatibility with a slew of I/O formats.


Dozens of improvements in Version 2
The 02R96 Version 2 adds features and functionality that place it right at the forefront of modern production requirements, delivering mixing performance, effects, surround capability, and operational efficiency that set it apart from all other consoles in its class.

02R96 Version 2 upgrades include:

Top-quality channel compression, gating, EQ, and delay - All 56 input channels on the 02R96 feature flexible, independent compression and gating/ducking processors for dynamics control. The 4-band parameter channel equalizers also offer extra versatility with switchable "type I" or "type II" EQ algorithms to deliver the type of EQ response you prefer. Even the channel delay goes beyond the norm, with a maximum delay of 453 milliseconds. Version 2 even features comp/gate gain reduction metering on the meter display.

Pro Tools and Nuendo Control - When used with a DAW system the 02R96 provides physical control of mixer functions as well as recorder control. Control functions for Digidesign's Pro Tools and Steinberg's Nuendo digital audio workstation software are provided as standard libraries. By simply connecting the console to a computer via the TO HOST connector (combined USB and serial), the console's faders and encoders can be used for DAW control to create a seamless, efficient production environment. You have direct control of Pro Tools surround panning via the 02R96 joystick. Just about any other DAW software can be accommodated via MIDI by creating an appropriate MIDI assignment table.

Add-On Effects capability - The 02R96 Version 2 is compatible with Yamaha's outstanding Add-On Effects series (sold separately). According to your signal-processing needs you could add the Channel Strip package with high-performance EQ and compression capability, or the Master Strip Package for extraordinarily accurate sonic reproductions of some of the finest tape decks of audio's "golden age". There's also a Reverb Package featuring the latest REV-X reverb algorithms used in Yamaha's outstanding SPX2000, and other effect packages that can contribute to your production arsenal in a big way.

Transport Controls and eight direct locate keys - The 02R96 has been provided with a comprehensive range of facilities for external machine control. The MMC protocol is supported, and control can be switched between MTR and master target machines. Version 2 provides additional control capability with the ability to remotely control MMC equipment directly from the console's DAW layer, so you can simultaneously control a DAW and MMC recorders without having to switch layers. 8 direct locate keys are also provided for fast, easy location and cueing.

Scene Memory - With the 02R96 you can take a snapshot of just about any mix, effect and patch setup and store it in any of 99 scene memories. There are also fade time, and recall safe functions which can be applied globally as well as individually for each channel. Additional scene memories can be managed via memory cards or a computer running the supplied Studio Manager software. Like most other control sections, a DISPLAY key brings all scene parameters up on the LCD display panel. And for even greater versatility Version 2 features a global paste function that lets you simultaneously paste selected parameters from one scene to multiple scenes - your EQ and AUX settings from final rehearsal, for example, can easily be copied to all other scenes that will be used during the performance.
