  • Yamaha O1V'S

    A Pair of Yamaha O1V'S are available in my area for $800. ($400 each) Been wanting to get rid of my Yamaha MG32/14FX for something smaller and this looks like it might be a good fit and if I had two I could link them if neccessary for more channels.



    Sound Like a good price if everythings in good shape for those of you who have used 01V'S?

    Hell yeah......I bought two for $1000 in perfect working order about 2 1/2 years ago. It was probably one of the best purchases I've made.

      The 01v although not an 01v96 is a good package. It does have another layer for another 8 channels but those are somewhat limited in eq/processing.

      With a total of 24 xlr inputs and 4 effects processors ( 2 in each board ) you'd have a good rig. You could use 1 board just for the Drums and have the effects processor setup in it just for that and use the other for the rest of the band. You would have the drum board go into channels 15/16 on the other board and use it as the Master. I believe my 01v96 has 1.4 ms delay time from input to output. You could add that to each channel on the "Master" board if needed.



      If they are in good shape $400 each is about the going rate. Try them before you buy.



      I do know a very good friend of mine has one. He is blind and I did an audio tape for him of all the functions and I kept thinking this is close to my 01v96 in layout and not a bad desk. I still think from time to time about getting one for a "Drum" desk to submix to my 01v96.

      If both desk have adat cards you could link them via adat and stay digital until the outputs.

          Both of mine have ADAT cards.....but I didn't think that could be used to link them. I have a Presonus D8 to expand to 24 inputs. If linking is possible through the ADAT cards, I'd appreciate it if someone could guide me through it.

            Here is how Yamaha suggests to cascade the two consoles:

            I can't remember since I haven't owned an 01v in awhile but I imagine you could do the same thing just doing the patch through the ADAT cards. That would however limit your channel count through ADAT since you would eat up some doing that.

              A timely thread.



              I'm kicking around a digital mixer to replace our PA rack and ease the load on our aging backs. Money is an issue, so an 01V might fit the bill. But I don't know much about it; from the SOS article it looks like it was introduced around '95, but I don't know when it went out of production. I'd be concerned with depending on a piece of equipment that's potentially 15 years old or so, especially a digital/computer device. Are they still able to be serviced/parts available?

                If you can find one in working condition they are generally pretty bulletproof. Mine get used every weekend year around and I bought both of mine when they were over 10 years old. That's the beautiful thing about those boards.....they are pretty rock solid and the design has all of the kinks worked out.

                  I understand that there are some parts on the early versions that are no longer available. I don't have first hand experience, but it's from a trusted source.

                    As long as they are in good working order it sounds like a decent deal. As with most Yamaha gear the 01V is very reliable. I have one that I bought used back in 2000. Admitedly it has not been OTR but rather in a studio BUT it has been on 24/7 (except for power outages & occasional vacations) since it was bought. It has had 1 repair performed (a simple known grounding issue inside) but otherwise has performed flawlessly. I have the ADAT expansion card and use that link to drive another firewire device for extra channels. It also handles monitoring distro from several different sources. I still see a lot of them (the original 20 bit models) used in various rigs that come through.



                    Great boards.

                      Does anyone know how to determine the age/manufacture date? I'm looking at a couple on ebay; one has a serial number like OM02800 . I googled around but could find anything regarding serial numbers for the 01V. If parts could be a problem for an early unit, I'd like to avoid one.

                        I would call Yamaha service and ask about parts availability on the older O1V's, in the past they have been quite helpful.

                          I don't know about the 01v but my 01v96 shows the manufacture date on boot up. Maybe contact the ebay seller and ask if the date on it shows up on turn on?

                            Thanks guys. I heard back from one ebay seller; board manufactured in 2000 with latest firmware (1.06). Thanks for the tip.



                            Andy, I'll call Yamaha support; hadn't thought of that.



                            I also saw elsewhere that there was a problem early versions having to do with a ground problem 'after the board was impacted on the right side'. Later versions had a different circuit board and early versions had a fix by adding a ground wire. So I'll know to look for that.



                            Thanks again.

                              Is this the date of manufacture, or the revision date for the software/OS?
