Yamaha introduced two input cards specifically designed for the PM1D Digital Mixing System. Both cards will be available in the first quarter of 2004 and will use the head amplifier circuitry found in the recently introduced Yamaha PM5000. Also introduced, Yamaha offers Version 2 software and five available add-on effects packages for the DM2000 and 02R96 digital mixing consoles.

The LMY2-MLAB (pictured) is a 2-channel mic/line with A/B input card, featuring 28-bit A/D conversion. The 4-channel LMY4-MLF is a mic/line input card with 24-bit conversion.

“In addition to the improved sound quality, one of the benefits of the LMY4-MLF card is that it also allows the input racks to be smaller,” said Marc Lopez, product manager at Yamaha Commercial Audio. “In the original system, the AI8 input frame could only hold 16 A/B units. With the addition of a 4-channel card, each AI8 can now hold 32 inputs. As a result, a 96-input system will now contain three, rather than six, frames.”

In other Yamaha news, available in January 2004 and compatible with Mac OS X and Windows 2000/XP platforms, Version 2 is a significant upgrade for the DM2000 and 02R96’s preconfigured internal software and Studio Manager Software with the addition of almost 50 new features, the capability to run the new add-on effects, expanded DAW control and features specifically designed for the broadcast and sound reinforcement markets.

Designed to provide editing, librarian and remote-control functions for the DM2000 and 02R96, Studio Manager V. 2 retains the user’s ability to control and manage all console parameters from a computer via a graphic interface; functions are replicated onscreen in logical and easy-to-understand pages. In addition, V. 2 provides a platform of total system recall for multiple compatible-format consoles and effects products.

Five effects packages, designed to be used separately or in combination, will be available in the first and second quarters of 2004. Packages have been produced with Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM), which reproduces the physical modeling of analog circuitry from the component level, including capacitors and resistors.

The Reverb package brings the advanced REV-X algorithm from the new SPX2000 with a new generation of Yamaha reverb programs that provide rich, reverberant tone and extremely smooth, transparent decay. Programs include REV-X HALL, REV-X ROOM and REV-X PLATE.

Channel Strip includes two new mono/stereo compressors and a 6-band parametric equalizer, each modeled after a combination of popular devices. Master Strip features OpenDeck (pictured), a tape deck emulator that allows the user to select the Record and Reproduction decks, plus tape speed and type, independently.

Ideal for audio post-production and ADR applications, the Surround Post package includes Room ER, a surround room simulator for early reflections; Auto Doppler (Doppler effect); and Field Rotation, which will rotate the perspective of entire 5.1 fields.

For instrumental effects applications, the Vintage Stomp package features the sounds of phasing stomp boxes, including Max100, Vintage Phaser and Dual Phaser.
