The 01V's Back, and Better Than Ever!

The Yamaha 01V96i updates their iconic digital recording console with 16 channels of bi-directional USB audio streaming at an impressive 96kHz. With multi-track recording now de rigueur during live shows, Yamaha once again ups the ante by making recording and playback faster and easier, while supplying full integration with major ASIO and Core Audio DAWs - with just a single connection. Onboard, you get Yamaha's lauded Virtual Circuitry Modeling technology, giving you warm "analog" effects that are modelled on the actual circuitry of the original units. Bundled with Steinberg's Cubase AI, Yamaha's 01V96i is all you need.

Yamaha 01V96i Digital Mixer at a Glance:
  • 24-bit/96kHz Streaming Through USB!
  • Integrated DAW Control
  • Virtual Circuitry Modeling
24-bit/96kHz Streaming Through USB!

The Yamaha 01V96i streams 16 channels of 96k audio to-and-from your Mac or PC, heralding a new benchmark of multitrack recording power and convenience. You also get multi-channel I/O via expansion card or ADAT. Now, for live shows, you can grab your laptop and the 01V96i - and have everything you need to make fully professional multitrack recordings right at your fingertips. It couldn't possibly get any easier than this.

Integrated DAW Control

The Yamaha 01V96i digital mixer has been designed to integrate tightly with leading digital audio workstations to create a complete production and mixing environment. You get full control of mixing and processing parameters, as well as transport/track-arming control and access to editing functions - directly from the 01V96i control surface. The 01V96i even comes bundled with Steinberg's Cubase AI, giving you everything you need, right out of the box.

Virtual Circuitry Modeling

The Yamaha 01V96i sports Yamaha's highly respected Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, giving you the richness and warmth of analog effects - in an efficient digital recording environment. VCM plug-ins model the actual circuitry of the original effects devices - right down to the last capacitor. These are the very same effects found on Yamaha's top-of-the-line pro mixers! Pre-installed and ready to rock, VCM plug-ins sure beat hauling around priceless, delicate, finicky vintage outboard gear!

Best Decision Ever!

I bought this board after my first board crapped out on me. I was tired of horrible quality when doing sound and am a person who is always out to get the best sound possible. This board made that possible. The combination between my Electro Voice tops/subs and this board sound incredible. I also love how simple it is to connect to Pro tools 10 and can now offer live recording as an option for bands I do sound for. I did a lot of research before purchasing and I also had some hands on time with the version before this and loved the way it felt. I like having the analogue feel of the gain control, but then having many layers of faders to mix with. this is the best purchase I have ever made, and could not be any happier! Also quick shout out to Brain VanDekeere for helping me out with this purchase! I couldn't be happier!! Thanks Sweetwater, You're the best!!

Dream Machine

I've owned a number of mixers that I've used for combination of audio post production, live gigs and album recording including the predecessors the Yamaha 02R and Yamaha 01V96 with mlan. When Yamaha abandoned mlan I was so mad I switched to the new Presonus mixer and was quite disappointed with the onboard fx. Meanwhile Yamaha came out with the 01V96i with an even better chipset and built in premium eq and fx, not to mention 16 channels of digital i/o via usb that worked flawlessly. Studio manager software also installed easily and was immediately recognized by my mac running Lion and I'm a happy camper. This is a very solid, musical sounding box with huge bang for the buck which IMHO eclipses everything else in its class.
