Uncompromising sonic quality and performance are guaranteed by 20-bit, 128-times oversampling ADs on each input. The 20-bit, 8-times oversampling DAs on the stereo outputs, as well as 18-bit, 8-times oversampling DAs on the Omni outputs and monitor outputs and 44-bit EQ processing provides crystal clean sound.Optional Expansion Cards with Maximum CompatibilityThe 01V's mini YGDAI (Yamaha General Digital Audio Interface) slot located on the rear panel provides a convenient means for expanding your mixing power. Cards are available separately which provide an additional 8 digital inputs and 8 assignable digital outputs for direct digital connection to major modular digital multitrack recorders i.e. the Alesis ADAT, Tascam DA88/DA38, and AES/EBU format systems. The digital outputs can be configured as bus outs, aux sends, direct outs, or stereo outs.Streamlined Panel Design Makes Operation Easy and IntuitiveIf you've never operated a Yamaha digital mixer before, you'll be pleasantly surprised to discover how convenient and natural the overall "feel" of the 01V is, as well as how quickly you'll be able to master the operation of it. The 01V's panel layout makes access to all features and adjustment of parameter values as quick and easy as the press of one of the many dedicated buttons and spin of the dedicated data dial.LCDThe large 320 x 80 dot LCD provides plenty of visual feedback of mixer status, and an LED on each panel button lights to indicate which parameter is currently selected. Pressing the HOME button once or more lets you call up one of a number of screens which provide instant views of overall mixer status, while VIEW screens give you at-a-glance confirmation of the various channel settings.Control PanelChannel and Stereo Master control is easy. Dedicated ON buttons let you select only what you want to hear. Pressing a SEL (Select) button displays channel or Master status in the LCD, and each channel has a dedicated SOLO button for singling out a specific track for aural scrutiny. Access to channel pan position, as well as EQ settings, effect send levels and dynamics settings is also convenient, thanks to dedicated buttons which you can press to display the respective settings in the LCD.Flexible Input/Output Configuration and Signal RoutingThe 01V's flexible configuration of inputs and outputs and signal routing capabilities makes it suitable for an extremely wide range of recording, main mixing, submixing and even live mixing applications. Included are 12 analog input channels and 2 stereo inputs - making a total of 16 inputs - plus 4 "Omni" outputs which are freely assignable, along with a main stereo mix bus and stereo monitor outputs.InputsAll analog inputs are equipped with latest generation 20-bit AD and DA converters, which let the 01V achieve over 105dB dynamic range from analog input to output. There are also stereo 2-track inputs and outputs for direct connection to an analog 2-track recorder for master mixes, and even coaxial-type digital stereo input and output for direct connection to a digital 2-track recorder such as DAT or MD.Individual Channel PEQThe 01V's parametric equalizers and onboard dynamics processors provide the same tried and true, professional quality signal processing as the 02R, since they use the same Yamaha custom 32-bit DSP, and feature the same parameters selected after close consultation with the world's top professional recording engineers.StorageComprehensive libraries of preset EQ and dynamics settings provide a great place to start or for reference, and plenty of user programs are available to store your own.EQ BandsThere are 26 four-band parametric EQs which are available for all 16 individual channel inputs, the 2 onboard stereo effects returns, the 4 aux sends, and main stereo outputs. (A 2-band PEQ is available for optional digital input channels 17-24.) Each of the four EQ bands has a range from 20 Hz to 20kHz which can be adjusted in 1/12 octave steps, and a 0.1-10 Q range.High and LowHigh and low EQ bands can be configured as shelving or peaking, with the high band capable of being configured as LPF, and the low band as HPF. EQ gain settings range from -18 to +18dB. EQ settings can also be copied between channels via the equalizer library.LibraryThe EQ library's collection of 40 preset EQ programs include specific settings which can be applied to everything from acoustic and electronic instruments to percussion to vocals. Including the 40 memories for storing your own EQ settings, a total of 80 EQ programs are available for instant recall.Dynamics ProcessorsThere are 22 onboard dynamics processors for 16 individual channels, 4 aux sends, and main stereo outs which provide a choice of compressor, expander, gate, ducker and compander functions to apply to individual channel as well as stereo inputs. Any input channel (1-16 or Stereo input) can be used as a key trigger.2 Onboard EffectsTwo of the 01V's 6 aux sends are "hot-wired" directly to the onboard 32-bit effects processors which utilize the same DSP and some of the same algorithms as Yamaha's professional ProR3 and REV500 models. There are 42 basic preset effects which make up a library of various reverb, delay, echo, chorus, flange, pitch shifting and other effect types to choose from, as well as freeze (sampling) and guitar amp simulation effects.4 Omni OutputsBesides the 2 onboard effects, the 4 Omni outputs can be used as additional auxiliary sends. Thus, the 01V has powerful submixing applications with as many as 6 effects available for signal processing. The 01V also features channel input delays of up to 250ms which are useful for microphone-placement compensation for live recording and video editing.60 mm Motorized Faders with Channel PairingThe 01V's 60 quick-response 60mm motorized faders serve multiple functions. Besides their role as conventional mixer faders to adjust channel output signal levels, they also function as auxiliary send level controls for each of the 4 aux sends and onboard effects aux send level controls. When a scene memory is recalled, the faders automatically position themselves to the levels stored; when an aux or effects function is selected, they position themselves precisely at the send level settings.Fader GroupingThe 01V's channel Group function lets you configure 3 separate fader groups and 3 separate mute groups which work independently so you can build up complicated mixes quickly. Moving one fader within a group will automatically adjust the other faders in the group by the same relative amount. Similarly, pressing one ON button in a mute group will automatically turn the other channels in the group on or off.Stereo PairingA stereo pairing function is handy for linking adjacent odd/even number channels, with panning either independent or "ganged". When channels are paired, moving either channel fader will automatically adjust the other channel level by the same amount. The 4 aux sends and 4 bus outs can also be paired.Comprehensive MIDI FunctionsA true product of the digital age, the 01V features MIDI IN, OUT and THRU terminals which permit control of all parameters in real-time using MIDI Control Change and System Exclusive messages, providing Dynamic Automation via MIDI. You can "record" all fader movements, channel on/off selections, scene selections, effect selections, panning, EQ and other parameter adjustments to an external MIDI sequencer, then have the sequencer "play" them back in order to create an automated mixdown.MIDI Bulk DumpYou can perform MIDI bulk dump operations to a MIDI data filer (such as the Yamaha MDF3 MIDI Data Filer) or MIDI sequencer to save your scene data, as well as user EQ, dynamics and effects programs. 01V faders and user definable buttons in the menu can be used to control other MIDI devices such as digital audio recorders and processors via MMC (MIDI Machine Control) commands.User-Definable Remote ControlThe 01V's MIDI remote function is extremely powerful. MIDI remote allows the 01V's motorized faders to remotely control the internal levels in a digital audio workstation, and then - at the press of a button - the faders can be used to edit the internal parameters of an external effects processor. You can define which MIDI command can be transmitted along with fader movement or channel on/off without affecting the performance of the internal processor.TO HOSTA TO HOST (RS422) port permits direct connection to a personal computer without a MIDI interface. You can also use it to connect two 01Vs for double the mixing power. The 01V Link function allows multiple mixers to behave like one mixer which gives you the freedom to build any size digital recording and mixdown system you want.
