    Yamaha DM2000VCM Digital 96kHz Recording Console

    The Renowned DM2000 Plus an Extraordinary New Range of Effects and Simulations

    The new DM2000VCM is the DM2000 Version 2 plus a formidable array of state-of-the-art processing technologies that provide all-new production power. You now have extraordinary recreations of classic compression and EQ units from the 70's, simulations of several legendary analog open-reel tape decks, a complete suite of unmatched REV-X reverb effects, a surround post-production package that is second to none, and even a selection of vintage stomp boxes to spice up your mixes. And all of this is right at your fingertips, with no need to patch in external processors. The technology that has made all of this possible is some of the most advanced in the world, and the sound is simply superb.

    In short, one of the world's most popular digital production consoles just got a lot more powerful.

    VCM Technology is responsible for the classic compressor, EQ, analog tape deck, and stompbox effect simulations in the DM2000VCM. VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology actually models the characteristics of analog circuitry -- right down to the last resistor and capacitor. VCM technology goes well beyond simply analyzing and modeling electronic components and emulating the sound of old equipment. It's capable of capturing subtleties that simple digital simulations cannot even approach, while actually creating ideal examples of sought-after vintage gear.

    iSSP technology is the key to the DM2000VCMs incredible selection of surround post-production effects. iSSP stands for "Interactive Spatial Sound Processing," and is Yamaha's original new spatial sound effect system. Designed through extensive research and exhaustive testing, this technology offers unparalleled reality, operability and originality for surround processing applications. It delivers unprecedented sound-field positioning precision and versatility, as well as realistic sound source movement effects with simple operation that allows simulations of an almost unlimited variety of spatial environments.

    "REV-X" is the advanced algorithm behind Yamaha's newest generation of reverb and ambience programs, offering unprecedented reverberation depth and realism with smooth decay. REV-X technology takes full advantage of the 24-bit 96-kHz processing capability of the DM2000 for reverb and ambience effects that have the reassuring warmth and reality of natural acoustic environments.


    It took a while, but at long last the seminal standard of digital sound - 16 bits at 44.1 kHz - has seen its day ... at least on the production front. We've seen bit depths of 18, 20, and 24 at sampling rates of 48 kHz, and sometimes higher, come and go, but now the entire industry has its sights set on one formula that is the future of digital sound: 24 bits at 96 kHz. Now we really do have a digital standard that delivers the smooth, natural sound of analog recordings without the attendant disadvantages. And, in the same way that the Yamaha DMC1000, 02R and then the PM1D revolutionized the fledgling field of digital mixing as it grew in rapidly increasing leaps and bounds throughout the last decade, the Yamaha DM2000 Digital Production Console is ready to define the industry standard for the foreseeable future.

    But the DM2000 is much more than simply a high-performance digital mixer, it is a total production tool that also offers 96-kHz effects, advanced surround production facilities, extensive integrated DAW and machine control, computer and memory-card based data management, an extraordinarily flexible bus system with digital patching, inserts, and much more.

    Yamaha defined the first generation of affordable, professional digital mixing consoles. Get ready for the next generation - total production control.

    Dedicated DSP LSIs Deliver Unprecedented 24-bit, 96 kHz Performance

    Unlike conventional equipment that achieves operation in 96K mode with reduced number of tracks, with DM2000 there is no limitation dependent on sampling frequencies - 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz or 96khz. For DM2000, 96Khz is the standard. To achieve this, no fewer than 14 newly-developed DSP7 LSIs are utilized in the mixer section with eight DSP6 LSIs for effects. These chips are designed and manufactured by YAMAHA specifically for professional audio applications, and deliver performance that stretches the limits of the most advanced technology currently available.

    By way of comparison, the Yamaha 02R - the digital mixing console that almost single-handedly started the digital production revolution, and rapidly became the industry standard - uses six DSP3 chips in its mixer section. A single DSP7 chip has more than four times the processing power of a DSP3. The DM2000 provides more than 9 times the processing power of 02R. We're talking about 96 channels of super-clean, super-dynamic, noise-free 24-bit/96 kHz audio, plus all the additional effects and processing you'll ever need for most applications. At 44.1 or 48 kHz the DM2000 is barely idling.

    Internal Effects Fully Support 96kHz Processing

    What's the point of having 24-bit/96kHz audio if you have to convert down to a lower sampling rate for effect processing? The point may seem obvious, but that's exactly what's happening if you're using hardware or software processors that don't offer 24-bit/96kHz performance anywhere in your signal chain. That's why Yamaha included a comprehensive range of 96-kHz compatible stereo effects in the DM2000 - plus several designed specifically for surround. And you can use as many as eight individual effect processors simultaneously.

    Finest Mic-Preamps with 24-bit/96kHz On board AD/DA Conversion

    Taking the preceding discussion a step further, what about analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion? The same applies: if you don't have all 24 bits at the full 96 kHz in top-quality converters, you're definitely going to be missing something (i.e. part of your sound). Once again, the DM2000 imposes no limitations. All onboard A/D and D/A conversion makes use of the finest 24-bit/96kHz converters. This is particularly important in the DM2000 because it features some of the finest analog mic preamps available in any console, anywhere. The on-board converters ensure that you get an excellent digital representation of the warm, transparent output from these remarkable mic preamps. A new range of Mini-YGDAI digital and analog I/O cards also provide full 24-bit/96kHz capability.

    Comprehensive Automation and Scene Control

    Automation and Scene Memory recall capability are essential elements of modern digital mixing consoles. With the DM2000, Yamaha takes these functions to an even higher level of precision and ease-of-use. While providing full automation of virtually all console parameters, DM2000 features smooth and quiet touch-sensitive, 100mm motorized faders that make writing and updating automated mixes faster and more intuitive than ever. And all automation data is recorded at 1/4-frame accuracy to ensure excellent precision.

    Complete Surround Solution

    It looks as though an industry-standard surround format is finally here, and the DM2000 provides everything required for a complete surround solution. All the facilities you need for surround processing, panning and monitoring - including joystick - are provided as standard equipment. The joystick is the perfect (and generally preferred) tool for smooth, continuous positioning of 5.1 surround sound for DVDs or other surround media. And since accurate monitoring is so essential to surround production, extra care was taken to ensure that the DM2000 offers the ideal mixing environment - it includes a downmix matrix which can deliver 3-1(LCRS) and stereo mixes while you are burning a 5.1 surround mix to DVD, bass management, and speaker alignment facilities for optimum speaker system tuning. The DM2000 will even handle multiple 5.1 stem mixes with ease.

    Intuitive Interface Designed for Maximum Productivity

    Anyone who is familiar with the 02R will immediately feel comfortable with the DM2000. While the comprehensive, efficient display format of the 02R has been inherited by the DM2000, the control surface and user interface system has been greatly expanded and enhanced to allow analog-style hands-on operation with minimum need to refer to the LCD. The motto: mix with your ears, not with your eyes. 16 user-defined keys which can be assigned the functions of your choice are also provided.

    96 Channels in 4 Layers

    One of the advantages of working with digital is that it allows maximum power and flexibility to be packed into minimum space. The DM2000's 24 precision 100-millimeter motorized channel faders, for example, can be instantaneously layer-switched to control any of 96 channels. So you have 96 channels in the space of 24, and switching between layers with the channels right in front of you can be a lot faster and easier than trying to locate a desired channel on a massive spread-out console. More importantly, all operations can be carried out without having to move away from the monitoring "sweet spot".

    Extraordinary Patching Flexibility

    All available inputs, outputs, effects, and channel inserts can be assigned to any of the console's channels or outputs via the DM2000's remarkably versatile, easy-to-use digital patching system. For example, any of the 8 effect processors can be assigned to an auxiliary buss for send-type operation, or inserted directly into any input channel as required. A direct out function also allows the signal from any of the 96 input channels to be routed directly to any digital or analog output in the system.

    Further, a 22 by 8 (4-stereo) matrix mix system in DM2000 can be used to provide cue monitor mixes, downmix monitoring for surround production, or zone level control for sound reinforcement applications.

    The fully flexible patching system allows 30 of DM2000's busses - eight record/subgroup busses, 12 auxiliary sends, L/R stereo bus, and four stereo matrix busses - to be assigned to any available output connector.

    I/O Expandability and Plug-in Capability

    The DM2000's real I/O versatility comes in the form of six Mini-YGDAI expansion slots. The expansion slots are 24-bit/96-kHz compatible, so you can select I/O and processing cards to provide the input/output configuration and processing capabilities that are perfect for your needs. Whether you need digital I/O in ADAT, TASCAM, or AES/EBU format, or extra analog I/O capability, the appropriate Mini-YGDAI cards are available. Apogee's high-performance A/D and D/A cards are supported, as is the very powerful Waves Y56K effects plug-in card.

    Flexible and Expandable for any Application

    In addition to its built-in analog and digital inputs and outputs, DM2000 provides six mini-YGDAI slots that will accept a wide range of I/O and effects plug-in cards. And if 96 channels aren't enough to handle your application, dedicated cascade ports allow two DM2000s to function effectively as one very large digital mixing system - providing a maximum of 192 input channels!

    Channel Name and FL Display

    A much-appreciated feature of Yamaha's ground-breaking PM1D digital sound reinforcement console is individual channel name displays. The DM2000 has inherited this feature so you can identify channels at a glance - a particular advantage when switching between mixing layers. In addition to the default 4-character channel name display, you can hold down the SEL key for any channel to see a long name of up to 16 characters displayed across the 8-channel section.

    Integrated DAW Control

    The DM2000 has been designed to integrate tightly with leading digital audio workstations to create a complete production and mixing environment. Extensive support for Digidesign's Pro Tools™ system provides full control of mixing and processing parameters, as well as transport/track-arming control and access to editing functions, directly from the DM2000 control surface.

    Studio Manager Software Supplied

    Control from a personal computer? Of course! And Yamaha even supplies the software. The DM2000 comes with the Studio manager application for both Macintosh™ and Windows™ platforms, allowing total control and management of all DM2000 parameters via a comprehensive graphic interface.
