High-performance Digital Audio

Precise 24-bit/96kHz audio and powerful processing

Featuring a custom DSP-7 LSI for ultra-high-speed 32-bit internal processing, the Yamaha DM 2000 VCM is a powerful performer, even when you max out its 96 input channels at 96kHz. Every analog input and output on the DM 2000 VCM (including its 24 microphone/line inputs) is built for performance, employing high-precision 24-bit AD/DA converters to give you an astounding 110dB of dynamic range. Of course, the analog components of the DM 2000 VCM are no slouch either, delivering pristine, uncolored preamplification before your signal even hits an A/D converter.

  • Ultra-high-speed 32-bit internal processing
  • High-precision 24-bit AD/DA converters
  • 110dB of dynamic range
  • Top-shelf analog circuitry and components

96-input, 22-bus Mix Capacity at 96kHz

Powerful channel functions with flexible control and patching

The Yamaha DM 2000 VCM gives you massive amounts of I/O (a 96-input, 22-bus mix capacity to be exact), so it'll never leave you wishing for more. On top of that, each of these input channels includes a 4-band parametric EQ, gating, compression/limiting, and up to 453ms of delay. If that wasn't enough, you also get eight group buses, 12 auxiliary buses, four stereo matrices, a host of inserts, and a main stereo bus. And the DM 2000 VCM was built with surround applications in mind — you can use group buses 1 through 6 as stereo surround buses, and a Bus to Stereo function allows for easy sub-mixing as well as downmixing of 5.1 or 3-1 surround to stereo. Highly configurable, all of the DM 2000 VCM's inputs, outputs, insert patch points, direct outputs, and effect sends and returns can be easily patched and routed, thanks to its easy-to-read LCD display. And what's best, you can conveniently save your patch settings as library data for fast and easy recall.

  • 96-input, 22-bus mix capacity
  • EQ, gating, dynamics, and delay on each input
  • Intuitive patching and routing
  • Patch settings can be saved and recalled

Yamaha DM200VCM

I can understand why they still sell this console. It's built like a tank - to last!!! Even by today's standard this console is incredible, super flexible, crystal clear, and with tons of inputs and outputs to spare. It totally connects to my DAW semlessly. Still worth every penny in my book.
