16-channel Multi-format I/O via a Single Slot - The
Yamaha MY16-AE Mini-YGDAI Digital I/O Interface card is for use with Yamaha
digital mixing consoles and other products with mini-YGDAI card slots
and provides up to 16 channels of simultaneous AES/EBU-format (D-sub 25
pin) I/O via a single expansion slot. All 16 channels can be used independently
at sample rates up to 48-kHz, or the Yamaha MY16AE card can be used for
"double channel" connection to 96-kHz recorders providing 8
channels of I/O at 88.2 or 96-kHz.
Connection with 96-kHz recorders - Although the Yamaha
DM2000, Yamaha DM1000 and Yamaha 02R96 handle 96-kHz audio as standard,
most of the currently available digital recorders can handle 96- kHz audio
only in double channel mode (using 2 tracks to make one). In this configuration
the Yamaha DM2000, Yamaha DM1000 and Yamaha 02R96 use one channel for
one (96-kHz) track, but twice the number of I/O connections must be used.
The newly introduced MY16-AT/TD/AE cards can handle 16 channels of 44.1/48-kHz
audio or up to 8 channels of 96-kHz audio in double channel mode. With
the newest recorders that handle 96-kHz audio as standard (in double speed
mode like the Yamaha DM2000, Yamaha DM1000 and Yamaha 02R96) you can make
standard connections using the MY8- AE96(S) card. MY8-AE96(S) card can
work either in double speed or single speed mode.
