The 01V96 - it's a beautiful thing
The V2 software, available as a free download for current 01V96 owners and included in new production models (notated as 01V96V2), the upgrade includes nearly 50 new features, including Studio Manager V2, expanded DAW control, application-specific functions and the capability to run Yamaha's Add-On Effects packages.
"In terms of value the Yamaha 01V96 already provides the most powerful digital mixing features for a vast range of markets. With the free Version 2 upgrade, current and future 01V96 customers will be able to enjoy even greater flexibility as they move to the 24/96 mixing standard, better DAW integration, Studio Manager V2 functionality and the access to Add-On Effects," states Peter Peck, Music Production Marketing Manager.
Studio Manager V2, included as part of the upgrade, retains the user's ability to manage all console parameters from a computer via a graphic interface while providing improved editing, librarian and remote control functions. All functions are displayed on-screen in logical, easy-to understand pages. Studio Manager V2 also provides a platform of total system recall when multiple, compatible-format products (including the 01V96V2, 02R96V2 and SPX2000) are being used together.
The 01V96V2 will be available in September.
