From Our Research Team:
The Digital Mixer Standard, Updated and Improved!The Yamaha 02R sparked the digital revolution back in 1995, and remained the professional standard until the release of the 02R96 in 2002. Now the 02R96 Version 2 expands the envelope once more, redefining the "state-of-the-art" for digital audio production. With more than five times the processing power of the original 02R, the 02R96 Version 2 represents a thorough revision that brings every aspect of the console up to date with today's most advanced production needs. And since the 02R96 inherits key features from Yamaha's flagship DM2000 Digital Production Console - 96-kHz audio, surround monitoring, studio manger software, and DAW control - it makes the most advanced technology for commercial sound and music production available to a broad range of engineers and facilities.
Yamaha 02R96 Version 2 Console at a Glance:
Uncompromised 24-bit/96kHz performance throughout
Unlike conventional equipment that achieves operation in 96-kHz mode with reduced number of channels, the 02R96 imposes no such limitations - at 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz or 96kHz. Full 96kHz resolution with 32-bit internal processing and 58-bit accumulators is the standard. You get 56 channels of transparent, super-dynamic 24-bit/96-kHz audio, plus all the additional effects and processing you'll ever need for most applications. Yamaha has included a comprehensive range of 96-kHz compatible stereo effects with 32-bit internal processing in the 02R96 - plus several designed specifically for surround. And you can use as many as four individual effect processors simultaneously.
Superlative sound from preamps and A/D converters
And what about critical A/D conversion? All onboard A/D and D/A conversion makes use of the finest 24-bit/96-kHz converters. This is particularly important in the 02R96 because it features head amplifiers derived from the acclaimed DM2000 - some of the finest analog mic preamps available in any console, anywhere. The on-board converters ensure that you get an excellent digital representation of the warm, transparent output from these remarkable mic preamps. I/O capability is also in line with the rest of the console's performance: four I/O slots accept a new range of 24-bit/96-kHz-capable Mini-YGDAI digital and analog I/O cards as well as existing types.
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:
Incredibly flexible surround functions
The 02R96 surround features are fully compatible with 3.1, 5.1 and 6.1 surround processing, panning and monitoring requirements. With the 02R96 you can also change the order of the surround channel to bus out assignment according to project requirements. And since accurate monitoring is so essential to surround production, extra care was taken to ensure that the 02R96 offers the ideal mixing environment it includes a downmix matrix which can deliver 3.1 (LCRS) and stereo mixes while you are burning a surround mix to DVD, bass management, and speaker alignment facilities for optimum speaker system tuning. The 02R96 will even handle multiple surround stem mixes with ease.
Surround Effects Built In
The 02R96's internal digital effect system includes "Reverb 5.1", "Comp 5.1", "Expand 5.1", and a number of other effects specifically designed for surround production. Reverb ER and REV can be panned via the joystick. One program even provides as many as 8 mono reverbs that can be used for 8-in/8-out processing. Bus EQ and dynamics can also be grouped for efficient surround processing.
56 Channels in 3 Layers, Plus Extraordinary Patching Flexibility
One of the advantages of working with digital is that it allows maximum power and flexibility to be packed into minimum space. On the 02R96 24 precision 100-millimeter motorized channel faders can be instantaneously layer-switched to control any of 56 channels. Having all controls right in front of you at all times not only saves space, but it also means that all operations can be carried out without having to move away from the monitoring "sweet spot." What's more, all available inputs, outputs, effects, and channel inserts can be assigned to any of the console's channels or outputs via the 02R96's remarkably versatile, easy-to-use digital patching system. For example, any of the four effect processors can be assigned to an auxiliary buss for send-type operation, or inserted directly into any input channel as required. A direct out function also allows the signal from any of the 56 input channels to be routed directly to any digital or analog output. The eight auxiliary busses can also be patched to anywhere in the system. Centralized control means you'll never have to run around to physically re-patch cables whenever you need to reconfigure the system, and patch setups you might want to use again can be stored in the patch library for instant recall at any time.
