Yamaha could do better. It took me three tries until i got one that worked. Also I am disapointed with the cold sound. i don't recommend the 01v.

Great mixer all around. Automation is good, the thing is very quiet and the ADAT connection option has proven itself in conjunction with my STUDI/O board. I couldn't ask for more for the $$

For the money it's great and sounds good. I had a Mackie 32:8 and every other weeks I had to re-run my cables in my hone studio because things always got tangled when I made changes and tracig cable was a nightmare. With limited space, an analog mixer was the last thing I needed..

I started out with a Fostex VM200 digital mixer before getting the 01V. The Fostex was great, as it has multiple onboard effects, automated sliders, 100 scene storage, eq, but it also has analog (balanced and unbal) as well as ADAT and SPDIF in/out, all for less than $700. With the Yamaha, I felt that when I purchased it I knew right away I will be inking more money into upgrades, but that's the nature of the beast I guess.

I give the 01V a 9 out of 10.

The 01V is the best low-end digital mixer on the market right now. While it certainly lacks a certain character that a mackie analog board might have, this is actually an advantage. For a few extra clams, you can buy a nice tube DI box, analog compressor, or Big Briar Moogerfooger! Any box like that will warm up your signal.

I do all my mixing digitally, and then run the final output through two high quality analog compressors. The resulting sound is clean, warm, punchy and professional. And while I'd love a TLAudio Valve Console, I just don't have $40,000 to spend these days :) ... Everyone I know who makes 'electronic' music uses the 01V. It's just too powerful at too good of a price to bitch about the sound quality :)

I got my 01V about two years ago.I haven´t words enough to describe what the scene memories mean to me.Now I can work in many songs at the same time, keeping all EEFF, EQ,fader levels and dynamics.Isn´t it reason enough? Midi controls are an advantage, but don´t abuse of it or you´ll become crazy!!
