Yamaha 01V96I-CA-EDU Mixer, Digital 24-bit, 96kHz
To meet the increasing demand for multi-track recording and playback in live sound applications, the 01V96i now features USB 2.0 connectivity—allowing you to effectively take your studio on the road with you. With 16 in/16 out live audio streaming at 96kHz and seamless DAW integration requiring just a single connection, it has never been easier to capture, edit and produce high quality, professional level recordings. USB connectivity also provides extensive two-way communication of MIDI data allowing you to seamlessly combine the precise physical control of your console with all the capability of the latest Cubase AI software that comes bundled with the 01V96i.
The 01V96i 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. The 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. Bring vocals to life with a classic the SPX reverb, or smooth out a bassline with a classic compressor from the 70's.
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.
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. Included is 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 output buses.
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 sound.
Recreating the tube-amp saturation and fast response of the most sought-after studio-grade analog compressors, these models are perfect for smoothing out bass, fattening up drum parts or tightening vocals.
These compressors faithfully model the solid-state voltage-controlled amplifier and RMS detection circuitry of the late 70's compressor/limiters, and have been tweaked by some of the best sound engineers in the industry to give optimal response in live situations.
The 601 equalizer offers two equalization modes: Clean and Drive. The Clean setting is perfect for gentle tweaking and musical shaping, while the Drive mode models the unique distortion characteristics of 70's analog EQ circuitry, providing superb analog drive and saturation.
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 techn ques in real time using the 01V96i digital console.
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. The 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.
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.
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.
