- Every Masterpiece Started with a Blank
Canvas. Shouldn't Yours? At Yamaha, we believe that
the signature on your sound should be your own, not ours. With this
philosophy in mind, the 01V96i—like all of our higher-end digital
mixing consoles—was designed to provide outstanding sonic transparency,
giving you the purest signal reproduction possible as a starting point.
With this clear, unaltered medium as the foundation, all of the color,
shape and expressive elements of your sound are entirely in your hands.
So now you've got your canvas— time to add color. Yamaha's acclaimed
VCM effects faithfully model the analog circuitry of classic effect
units right down to the very last resistor and capacitor, bringing the
richness and warmth of analog to a digital environment. So whether you're
bringing vocals to life with a classic Yamaha SPX reverb, or smoothing
out a bassline with a classic compressor from the 70's, you can depend
on Yamaha's flexible digital processing to produce stunning vintage
24bit/96kHz Performance with Improved
Studio-Quality Head Amps:
Unlike some digital consoles that achieve operation in 96kHz mode
with a reduced number of tracks, 01V96i imposes no such limitations
at any of the provided sampling rates, with high resolution 96kHz
and 32bit internal processing (58-bit accumulator) as the standard.
What's more, all onboard A/D and D/A conversion makes use of top-performance
24bit/96kHz converters. This is particularly important with the 01V96i
because it features improved, studio-quality head amps that offer
extremely high-resolution and a remarkable sense of “air”.
With onboard converters operating at the full 24bits and 96kHz, you
can be sure that nothing is lost in the digital representation of
the warm, transparent output from these exceptional preamps.
96kHz Internal Effects and Top-Quality
Compression, Gating and Delay:
What's the point of having 24bit/ 96kHz audio if you have to convert
down to a lower sampling rate for effect processing? That's exactly
what's happening if you're using hardware or software processors that
don't offer 24bit/ 96kHz performance anywhere in your signal chain.
That's why Yamaha included a comprehensive range of 96kHz compatible
stereo effects. The 01V96i also features flexible, independent channel
compression and gating/ducking processors for dynamics control, 4-band
parametric channel equalizers that offer extra versatility with switchable
“type I” or “type II” EQ algorithms, as well
as a channel delay. All channel processors, except for channel delay,
come with an extensive selection of presets in a range of “libraries”that
can simply be used unmodified or edited to suit specific requirements.
All channel functions except gating are also provided on all
- Full Suite of Yamaha VCM Effects and
High-Resolution REV-X Reverbs:
[Channel Strip] - Bring Back The Classics
The Channel Strip consists of 5 models that employ VCM (Virtual
Circuitry Modeling) technology to recreate the sound and characteristics
of several classic compression and EQ units from the 70's. Not only
do these models faithfully capture the unique saturation of analog
circuitry – in part thanks to precise modeling of the original
FET gain reduction, tube/transformer buffer amplifier, VCA and RMS
detector circuits – but they have also been fine-tuned by
leading engineers and feature carefully selected parameters in a
simple interface that makes it easier than ever to create the ideal
[Master Strip] - A Reel Advantage -
The Master Strip employs VCM technology to recreate both the analog
circuitry and tape characteristics that shaped the sound of open-reel
tape recorders. Because of their ability to smooth out peak levels
and tidy up the response, many high-end recording studios still maintain
open-reel recorders such as the Studer A80 mk I, A80 mk IV and A820,
and the Ampex ATR100 and others from the 70's and 80's to be used
to provide tape compression at the mastering stage. Different types
of tape – new BASF, old Ampex, etc. – are also selected
and used according to the unique sounds they produce. Open Deck provides
models of four machine types: Swiss '70, Swiss '78, Swiss '85, and
American '70. You can even combine different record and playback decks
for a wider range of variation. You also have a choice of “old”
and “new” tape types, tape speed, bias, and EQ settings
that can vary the “focus” of the sound, distortion, and
saturation characteristics. Now you can easily take advantage of top-end
analog sound-shaping techniques in real time using the Yamaha 01V96i
[Vintage Stomp] - Phasers on Stun -
Stunning authenticity, that is. Vintage Stomp gives you three distinctly
different phasers modeled after the most sought-after stompbox effects
units of the 70's. Yamaha's VCM technology gives these outstanding
recreations all the warmth and atmosphere of the original vintage
units, and combines it with the control and processing flexibility
that a digital environment affords.
[Reverb] - Bring Your Mix to Life -
These high-resolution reverbs employ the latest "REV-X"
algorithms first introduced in Yamaha's SPX2000 Digital Multi Effects
Processor. The REV-X programs feature the richest reverberation and
smoothest decay available, based on years of dedicated research and
development. REV-X Hall, REV-X Room, and REV-X Plate programs are
provided, with new parameters such as room size and decay envelopes
that offer unprecedented definition and finer nuance control. The
REV-X Hall and REV-X Room programs have a very open sound, while REV-X
Plate delivers a brighter tonality that is ideal for vocals. All models
deliver dense, warm reverb that does not interfere with the natural
timbre of the source.
- Powerful Mixing Capacity,Versatility
and Expandability: Don't let its compact
construction fool you— the 01V96i has tremendous mixing capacity
for a console its size, making it extremely versatile and suitable for
a wide range of studio and sound reinforcement applications.
40 Input/20 Bus Mixing at 96kHz:
With up to 40 simultaneous inputs and 20 buses at 96kHz, the 01V96i
delivers large console power in a rack-mount sized package. Offering
a main stereo bus, eight individual mixing buses, two solo buses,
and eight auxiliary buses —a total of 20 in all— the 01V96i
gives you plenty of signal-routing options to adapt to just about
any mixing requirements.
Right out of the box the 01V96i offers 16 analog channel inputs—12
with improved studio-quality head amps-—and on the digital front,
8-channel optical ADAT, coaxial 2-track inputs and 16 inputs via USB.
Analog outputs include the main stereo output, stereo monitor outputs,
a stereo 2-track output, four OMNI outputs, 12 channel TRS insert
points and a headphones output, matched with coaxial 2-track outputs
and 8-channel optical ADAT for digital output. When you need more,
Yamaha offers a range of mini-YGDAI expansion cards that can be inserted
into the 01V96i’s expansion slot. From traditional analog audio
formats to standard digital audio and dedicated third-party proprietary
network protocols, Mini-YGDAI cards make it easy to add I/O in a wide
variety of audio and network formats to 01V96i.
Cascade Link for Ultimate Expandability:
When your situation demands a high capacity setup—particularly
for live sound reinforcement applications— the "01V96i
Cascade Link" allows you to run two units cascaded giving you
up to 80 channels of mixing capability. One simple connection for
all the power you would ever need.
- The Digital Advantage: The
benefits of digital technology are innumerable in terms of functionality,
cost and space. However the physical, intuitive aspects of analog style
mixers can never be discounted either. Our motto in designing the console:
mix with your ears, not with your eyes. It was with this philosophy
in mind that we made the best use of the technology at our disposal
to offer digital features that make a difference, without overshadowing
the familiar analog attributes of mixing.
Fast Flexible Patching:
Patching and assigning channels has always been one of the most
trying aspects of mixing with an analog console. Using the 01V96i's
versatile, easy-to-use patching system, all available inputs, outputs,
effects, channel inserts —and now USB I/O— can be assigned
to any of the console's channels or outputs. For example, any of
the effect processors can be assigned to an auxiliary bus for send-type
operation, or inserted directly
into any input channel as required. Centralized control means you'll
never have to run around to physically re-patch cables whenever
you need to reconfigure the system. Patch setups can be stored in
the 01V96i patch library for instant recall at any time.
Precision Motor Faders That Do More
Than Just Mix:
All of Yamaha's professional digital mixing consoles feature motor
faders for a reason. A mixing engineer needs to be able to see exactly
where levels are at all times, and without motor faders, every time
you recall a previously stored scene or remotely control your mixer
from external devices, the mix you hear will be totally different
from what is represented by the faders on the console. This can
cause considerable confusion and affect your workflow dramatically.
Why run the risk of blowing your mix by compromising on such a crucial
feature? Yamaha's 100mm motor faders are the end result of the extensive
research and analysis put into making our top-line digital mixers.
With the intuitive, physical control they afford, these precision
faders will ensure that your previously stored settings not only
sound exactly the same, but look just as they did when you saved
them. What's more, multiple monitor mixes can be recalled and modified
instantly and intuitively via the sends on fader function.
Intuitive "Selected Channel"
“Selected Channel” controls are the "hands-on"
channel controls for the currently selected input and output channel,
with analog style buttons and knobs that allow you direct access
and control of essential parameters. This Yamaha-designed configuration
has become a classic as well the de-facto industry standard, and
is familiar territory to most experienced engineers.
Layer Switching and Fader Mode:
One of the greatest advantages of digital control is that it adds
extraordinary power and flexibility to your console without taking
up valuable space. The 01V96i has 16 channel faders and one stereo
master fader. The channel faders can be instantly switched to handle
input channels 1-16, 17-32, MASTER (8 AUX and 8 BUSES) or REMOTE
via the console's LAYER switches. In the REMOTE layer, you can control
major DAW software or create custom fader layers with which you
can assign any in/out channels you like. The Fader MODE keys switch
the 01V96i faders between fader and auxiliary level control instantaneously.
Powered by fast, precise motor-driven mechanisms, the faders respond
immediately by moving to the settings of the corresponding mode.
Versatile Channel Pairing:
In addition to being able to pair faders "horizontally,"
corresponding faders in adjacent layers can be “vertically”
paired, allowing each physical channel fader to be used for stereo
channel control. Multiple stereo channels can thus be controlled from
a single layer with a whole list of linked parameters.
- Born Versatile, Tuned for Live:
The 01V has been used in a wide variety of applications due
to its exceptional versatility. Highly customizable, the 01V96i can
be configured to meet specific demands of various environments and greatly
benefit your operation of the console. In live situations in particular,
the console's personalized functions add a familiar touch while streamlining
your workflow tremendously.
You can group faders and mutes from any selected input channels
or output buses and store the settings in multiple banks. The group
function is very convenient for various applications including sound
User Defined Keys for Customized Control
of Your Console:
Eight user-defined keys allow you to customize how you interact
with your console. These keys can be assigned to control any functions
you choose. You could, for example, assign them to switch scenes,
copy/paste channels or flip display pages and numerous other functions
that can give you a tremendous advantage in live sound applications.
The Instant Group Assignment function allows you to use these keys
to set up mute group masters quickly— ideal for live applications
where groups of instruments or sound sources need to be muted instantly.
Scene Memory — Instant Recall
is Just a Click Away:
The ability to store and recall all console parameters in an instant
is a huge advantage for sound reinforcement applications. You can
instantly switch "scenes" during a performance, as well
as recall the basic settings for a show at different venues, then
tweak to optimize the sound for that environment. This can dramatically
reduce setup time and benefit your workflow tremendously. All scene
data can also be managed offline on a personal computer using the
01V96i Editor. You can do basic setup on your laptop, and then transfer
the data to the console at the venue. 01V96i digital mixing console
also lets you recall a scene with fade time, or apply “recall
safe” for only the specified parameters and channels, or globally
for added creative control and flexibility. There’s even 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.
Seamless DAW Integration:
In addition to its extensive stand-alone capabilities, the 01V96i
can seamlessly integrate with your computer-based DAW. In addition
to the bi-directional 16 x 16 USB2.0 audio integration, the 01V96i
also functions as a powerful controller for your Digital Audio Workstation
(DAW). This provides that familiar hands-on feel when recording, mixing
and editing your tracks. Control templates are provided for Avid ProTools®,
Steinberg Cubase® and Nuendo® while the general DAW mode supports
a range of other DAWs. MIDI control tables can also be created to
provide compatibility with MIDI-compatible DAW systems.
- 01V96i EDITOR:
Available for MAC and Windows platforms, 01V96i Editor is a
total management software package that gives you complete control of
all the console's parameters via your computer. Editor provides comprehensive
monitoring as well as real-time display of selected channel status once
it is connected to the console and online. Offline you can edit and
manage scene data, patch lists, and other functions for a significant
boost in control and work efficiency. If you are using a rental or another
installed console, you can easily save your settings to a computer,
then load them into the other console at your convenience. 01V96i Editor
also makes an effective tool for safely managing your backups.
