Connection with 96 kHz recorders

Although the DM2000 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 DM2000 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 DM2000) you can make standard connections using the MY8-AE96 card. The MY8-AE96 card can work either in double speed or double channel mode.

Nuendo® Setting (24tr 96 kHz Recording)

Steinberg's Nuendo® software is designed to handle 96 kHz audio, so it is an ideal companion for the DM2000. While the DM2000 functions as a basic controller for the Nuendo® software in this 24 track, 96 kHz system (full Nuendo® support is currently under development), it also handles extra mixing and processing of the outputs from high-end audio cards.

The DM2000 with Pro Tools®

In this system the Yamaha DM2000 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. While the DM2000 functions as an advanced control surface for the Pro Tools®, it can also handle critical audio processing tasks as well as monitoring.

High-capacity Sound Reinforcement with Remote Head Amp Control

Using Yamaha's AD8HR 8-channel AD converter it is possible to put together a 48 mic/line input system with digital signal transfer at 48 kHz/24-bit resolution. The AD8HR head amps can be remotely controlled from the DM2000 via the REMOTE terminal, so the head amps themselves can be located right on stage. Up to 48 channels of high-resolution digital (AES/EBU) audio can then be transferred to the console over distances of up to 200 meters without loss or degradation. If you also use the DM2000's 24 built-in microphone inputs you have a total of 72 inputs available — on a par with large live-sound systems, but with relatively simple setup and operation. In the system example a second DM2000 is used for monitoring as well as live recording.

DVD Authoring (6.1 Surround Monitoring)

Both the DM2000 and Yamaha's MSP10 STUDIO powered monitor speakers have been officially approved for use in THX® pm3™ 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 DM2000 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.

Stem Mix Monitoring

With the DM2000 monitoring stem mixes for film or video is easy. Even if your dialog, sound effects, music, and Foley sources are all in the form of 6.1 mixes, they can be combined and processed via the DM2000 without the need for any extra monitoring facilities.

Installation Case

Commissioned by the Basel-based Anne Frank Foundation, Anne is the first production at the brand new, purpose-built Theater Amsterdam. Only the second time that one of the most famous and poignant accounts to emerge from the Second World War has been adapted for stage, Yamaha and Steinberg technology is ensuring the impact of the sound matches that of the large scale visuals.

Installation Case

Located in the Massif Central, southern France, Maison de la Culture de Clermont-Ferrand (MCCF) stages over 250 performances a year, both visiting and home-produced. A recent major Yamaha upgrade to its audio facilities has ensured this most cultured of French cities has a venue that can stage the most complex productions.
