Version 2 software and five add-on effects packages (Mac OS X, Windows 2000/XP) for the 02R96 digital mixing console were announced at Winter NAMM. Version 2 software includes almost 50 new features, including Studio Manager V. 2, expanded DAW control, application-specific functions and the capability to run the new add-on effects packages.

The Version 2 Upgrade Kit will be available in March 2004, and provides improved editing, librarian and remote-control functions for the Yamaha 02R96 while retaining the user's ability to control all console parameters from a computer via a graphic interface. Functions are displayed onscreen in logical, easy-to-understand pages. Studio Manager V. 2 provides a platform of total system recall where multiple compatible-format products are being used (for example, multiple 02R96 or SPX2000 units).

"The Yamaha 02R96 has become a real standard for all types of recording and mixing applications," commented Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager of Yamaha Professional Audio. "With the addition of V. 2 software, users will be able to enjoy even greater flexibility, performance and functionality."

Available in the first and second quarters of 2004 for the upgraded 02R96 (or 02R96V2, shipping in February), the five add-on effects packages are designed to be used separately or in combination. Each package has been produced with proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM), which reproduces the physical modeling of analog circuitry down to the component level, including capacitors and resistors. Packages include reverb, vintage stomp, channel strip, master strip and surround post.

"The VCM technology doesn't merely duplicate the sounds of existing vintage equipment," said John Schauer, product manager at Yamaha Professional Audio. "You can actually create the best-quality 'gear' from those virtual components. It provides, in essence, the power to build your own custom effects. Having that power brings an entirely new dimension to the 02R96 or to a specific task."

The Reverb package, AE31, includes the advanced REV-X algorithm from the Yamaha SPX2000. Programs include REV-X HALL, REV-X ROOM and REV-X PLATE. Channel Strip, AE11, includes two new mono/stereo compressors and a 6-band parametric EQ, each modeled after a combination of popular devices. Master Strip, AE21, features OpenDeck, a tape deck emulator that allows the user to select the Record and Reproduction decks, tape speed and type independently. For musical instrument applications, the Vintage Stomp package features the sounds of phasing stomp boxes, including Max100, Vintage Phaser and Dual Phaser. For audio post-production or 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.
