yamaha's cheapest digital mixer. doesn't stack up to the mackie or the spirit, but OK for the price if you have a small home studio. be prepared to buy outboard fx if you want a pro sound tho!

Very flexible and good sounding mixer. Easy too oparate and nice effects. very happy with it I would recommend it to anyone that wants to work within a digital domain. Good stuff

Cheap Yamaha rubbish..i've had two of these already and they keep breaking (fader stopped working on one and the other just died altogether). i am sick of taking it back and waiting for a new one. the sound is ok for the price although i agree with the person who said it sounds cold. maybe yamaha will update it to be 24 bit and that will make it sound better?

Sorry - I really don't like the 01V mixer. Cold sounding, lifeless mixes, with only 20 bit A/D. There is a reason the 01V is so cheap, and that is because the sound is quite poor IMHO compared even to other Yamaha mixers (and I've heard dozens of them) not to mention others. After reading mixed reviews on the O1V I went back and exchanged mine for a different unit and my opinion is unchanged. I notice many of the people buying this don't have experience with professional mixers so perhaps it sounds good in comparison to cheap analogs? In my opinion, not even good enough for a submixer - I returned mine to the store.

I Love this mixer. I just added a second, for more channels and it's a joy to use this system. The FX are great/very usable. In recording I use alot of plug-ins in Logic, then bring up stereo pairs for instrument groups, and individual vocal or lead tracks to add more FX, I also use a cheap Lexicon and some old delays. This works great. Live, there's just nothing better than a digital mixer, they sound huge, and the mix sounds great every time.
