As well as being the remote control partner for your sequencer or digital audio workstation software, 01X will also control a wide range of parameters with many of your favourite software synthesisers and as the 01X also works as a multi-port MIDI interface, your existing hardware MIDI devices can be connected directly to the 01X.
Built on renowned 96kHz DSP technologies, found in Yamahas flagship DM2000, 02R96 and 01V96 professional digital mixers, the 01X not onlyworks as a professional digital mixing interface for your computer but also works as a total recall, stand-alone digital mixer, ideally suited for live performances.
With Yamahas new high quality microphone pre-amps, 48V phantom power on balanced XLR and TRS, line inputs you can plug in guitars, microphones or indeed any musical instrument and the quality of your signal is maintained throughout.
Full dynamics processing, including compressors, gates and limiters as well as 4 band parametric equalisation on every one of the 28 digital mixing channels, and two 32-bit effects processors means that the 01X puts no strain on your host computer for mixing or audio processing.
Being based on mLAN, Yamahas 01X can be expanded to add more channels with optional mLAN channel expansion units, meaning that the system can grow with your needs. Up to 16 extra analogue inputs can be added to 01X over mLAN with the 01X internal digital processors and mixing channels handling the routing/effects/EQ and dynamics.
Yamahas 01X is the first product to feature Yamahas mLAN technology offering high speed audio and MIDI networking between computers, synthesizers and other mLAN compatible products.
As Yamahas mLAN technology is based on the industry standard IEEE1394 (FireWire) buss, connecting up your 01X is as simple as plugging in a single cable. Perfect for any environment, the 01X is as connected to a laptop as to a desktop computer.
mLAN allows for up to 63 mLAN compatible devices to be linked together, using a single cable to send multichannel audio and MIDI.
01X comes with low latency 24bit 96kHz audio driver support for Windows XP and Macintosh (OS9/OSX) computers as well as full MIDI capability. Bundled with the 01X is a user interface control software and commercially available VST effects plug-ins . Whilst 01X itself has an intuitive user interfaces yet designed, using 01X in conjunction with Yamahas acclaimed Studio Manager, you can also instantly see and control every parameter directly from a computer screen. 01X comes with a VST compatible 01X channel module which mimics the hardware DSP and functions of the console, and lets you copy parameters from Studio Manager directly into your VST hosting application.
Also with 01X are three VST plug-ins offering enhanced vocal processing, final mastering and studio quality, formant-accurate pitch correction.
