Yamaha Corporation of America (Buena Park, Calif.) announced the first U.S. delivery of the DM2000 digital console to engineer/producer and five-time Grammy winner Elliot Scheiner for his 5.1 studio in Redding, Conn.

Sheiner is currently using the new console on Steve Lukather's (of Toto) solo project, DTS. "The DM2000 is unlike any other console, packed with features and sounds spectacular," commented Scheiner. "And to have 96 inputs at 24-bit/96k is incredible."

Scheiner's studio, wired by Monster Cable, also houses Yamaha MSP-10 monitors, a Yamaha SREV-1 reverb, Alesis HD-24, dbx 160SL signal processor, Studio Comm 5.1 monitor controller and Steinberg's Nuendo DAW. Along with the DM2000, all (except for the monitors) are positioned in a custom desk manufactured by Todd Beeton at Custom-Consoles (Nashville).

"To have someone with Elliot's credentials tout the attributes of the DM2000 affirms that Yamaha is truly listening to the market," said Larry Italia, general manager at Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems division. "Elliot's input will be invaluable as it relates to the design of future Yamaha products."

Scheiner has been working with the console for the past several months on a multitude of 5.1 projects, as well as other projects. "The DM2000's library of built-in effects is absolutely awesome; there's an enormous amount of flexibility with the internal patching and some great 5.1 effects processors. It's one of the most powerful consoles I've ever worked on," said Scheiner.

The high-performance digital console offers 96 input channels, gates and compressors on every channel, extensive surround production features, integrated digital audio workstation and Pro Tools control, while providing nine times the processing power of the Yamaha 02R. While in 96k mode, there is no loss of any inputs or outputs, made possible by utilizing the newly developed DSP7 LSIs with 32-bit (accumulative 58-bit) internal processing.
