Computer-based 96 kHz Recording

In this system the Yamaha DM1000 and a Digidesign Pro Tools® HD2 Accel setup are combined in a powerful recording and production system that provides as many as 64 input channels with up to 192 tracks at 48 kHz or up to 96 tracks at 96 kHz. Add to this the DM1000's advanced control surface features, and you have an extraordinarily powerful, efficient computer-based hard disk recording system. You can combine the DM1000 with Steinberg's Nuendo® or Apple's Logic Pro® workstation software, too. While the DM1000 functions as an advanced control surface for the software, it can also handle critical audio processing tasks as well as monitoring.

Connection with 96 kHz Recorders & Workstations

Although the DM1000 handles 96 kHz audio as standard, most of the currently available digital recorders can handle 96 kHz audio only in double channel mode (using 2 tracks to make one). In this configuration, the DM1000 uses one channel for one (96 kHz) track, but twice the number of I/O connections must be used. MY8-AT/TD/AE cards work in double channel mode to handle 96 kHz audio. The MY16-AT/TD/AE cards can handle 16 channels of 44.1/48 kHz audio or up to 8 channels of 96 kHz audio in double channel mode. With the latest equipment that handles 96 kHz audio as standard (in double speed mode like the DM1000) you can make standard connections using the MY8-AE96 card. The MY8-AE96 card can work either in double speed or double channel mode.

DVD Authoring (6.1 Surround Monitoring)

Both the DM1000 and Yamaha's MSP10STUDIO powered studio monitored speakers have been officially approved for use in THX® pm™ Certified Studios, and are thus ideal choices for the most advanced DVD authoring applications. In the system shown here the 6.1 program is monitored via powered monitors and a subwoofer connected to the console's OMNI outputs (the DM1000 also includes bass management facilities for full-range playback). At the same time surround encoders and decoders can be inserted in the system to burn a stereo mix as well as the surround mix to Lt/Rt Master.

Sound Reinforcement (48 Remote Mic/Instrument Input System)

Sound reinforcement applications generally require much more input capacity than studio production. You can connect up to 32 microphone/line inputs via Yamaha's high-quality 24-bit 8-channel AD8HR head amp/AD converter units, with fully digital transmission from the head amps to the console. Since the AD8HR is remotely controllable via the DM1000 REMOTE connector, your head amps can be set up on stage up to 200 meters (@44.1/48 kHz) away for maximum sound quality and minimum in-house cabling. The DM1000's built-in dynamics and effects can be a tremendous advantage in this type of application, too.
