Yamaha O.N.E. Systems

Yamaha’s mLAN-based O.N.E. (Open Network Expansion) Systems is a FireWire computer networking protocol for MIDI and audio that allows multiple channels of digital audio and multiple ports of MIDI to be transmitted and controlled via single FireWire cable.
O.N.E. Systems are mLAN systems that allow the user to choose different software and hardware from more than 43 companies with the assurance that it will all connect and function properly.
"By utilizing mLAN, O.N.E. Systems take the hassle out of configuring a computer music studio," commented Mike Martin, marketing manager of Digital Musical Instruments. "It's the perfect solution when using products from multiple manufacturers, and it gives customers the freedom to expand their system with ease."
Some O.N.E. Systems can be built from gear the user already owns by adding an mLAN expansion card to a product. For example, adding an mLAN card to a Yamaha Motif ES transforms it into an audio interface, a MIDI interface and hardware-accelerated DSP effects processor for a computer DAW. The user can then connect a mic or a guitar to the Motif's A/D inputs and record to the DAW software. In addition, the Motif's insert effects can be used to process the signal. The user can select up to 16 channels on the Motif ES to be simultaneously recorded directly to the DAW.
Larger O.N.E. Systems can include the Yamaha 01X mLAN mixing studio combined with products such as the Motif ES or the new i88X audio and MIDI interface. When connected to the 01X, the i88X provides 16 mic/line A/D inputs, two high-performance mic preamps, ADAT I/O, multiport MIDI interfaces and 12 analog outputs.
O.N.E Systems can be expanded using additional mLAN products from Yamaha, as well as mLAN products from other manufacturers, including converters and preamps from Apogee, Tube Preamps from PreSonus and effects processing from Kurzweil.
O.N.E. Systems provide comprehensive software support on Windows XP, Apple OS 9.2 and OS X platforms. This includes full support for Cubase (SX/SL), Nuendo (Version 1.61 and higher), Sonar (2.2 and higher), Logic (Platinum 5.3 and higher), Digital Performer (3.1 and higher), Yamaha SQ01 V. 2 and many other applications.
