Open System for Compatibility
The 02R features an "open system" for compatibility with all major industry-standard digital audio formats: TASCAM (TDIF-1), ADAT, AES/EBU, and Yamaha. Optional I/O interfaces allow the 02R to be easily integrated with any digital recorders, whether tape-based, or Non-linear "Hard-disc or Magneto optical." *See Optional Accessories.
Versatile 40-Input / 8-Buss Configuration
The 02R features 40 input channels (24 analog and 16 digital), 8 output busses (analog/digital), 16 direct outputs, and 8 auxiliary sends for extraordinary signal processing power in remarkably compact dimensions. A single 02R can handle digital mixdown of up to 32-tracks.
Individual Channel PEQ and Dynamics
All input channels feature independent 4-band parametric equalization and dynamics for module functionality on a par with top-line professional consoles.
The 02R offers real-time SMPTE or MIDI time-code based recording and mixdown automation without the need for add-ons or modification. In addition all console settings can be stored in snapshots, for instant re-set of every mix parameter.
Twin RISC CPUs and 32-bit Processing
Newly developed Yamaha custom 32-bit signal processing LSIs and twin RISC CPUs add up to unprecedented sound quality and response speed.
Compatibility with All Major Digital Formats
The 02R integrates seamlessly with digital recorders and other equipment using industry-standard digital audio formats. Simply select the appropriate optional I/O interface cards (8 channels per card) and plug them into any of the 4 YGDAI (Yamaha General Digital Audio Interface) slots provided on the rear panel for direct connection to a wide range of Modular Digital Multitrack recorders, Digital Audio Workstation, and other digital equipment.
Since the interfaces can be selected and purchased as required, you may pay for the interface according to the number of tracks you have. Card types can be mixed. AD/DA interface (8 channels per card) using high-performance 20-bit converters is also available for connection to analog MTRs.
40 Inputs, 8 Busses, 8 Aux Sends
The 02R offers extraordinary input/output capacity for its size. 24 analog inputs and 16 digital inputs add up to a total of 40 channel inputs.
Channels 1 through 16
16 of the 24 analog inputs feature high-performance head amplifiers for optimum matching with microphone or line sources. Channels 1 through 8 have balanced XLR type connectors (with phantom power) and TRS phone jacks with input A/B switching and insert patch points. Channels 9 through 16 have balanced TRS phone jack inputs. These 16 channels can also be configured for digital inputs (TASCAM, ADAT, YAMAHA format), providing a total of 32 channels for digital mixdown.
Channels 17/18 through 23/24
Channels 17/18 through 23/24 accept line-level sources.
16 Digital Input Channels
The 16 digital input channels (TAPE 1 to 16) accept digital input in TASCAM (TDIF-1), ADAT, or any YAMAHA digital audio format. With the addition of an optional AD/DA interface the output from analog MTRs can also be returned to these channels for full 40-channel analog input capability.
8 Auxiliary Sends
8 auxiliary sends provide versatile signal-routing capability. AUX 5 and 6 can be used individually or as a stereo control room or studio monitor send, or as a performer's cue mix send when recording. AUX 7 and 8 feed internal high-performance digital effect processors, and can be series-connected for sophisticated effect capability. The sends for each channel can be switched for pre- or post-fader operation, while 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 can be used as stereo sends if required.
