Yamaha brings simple, high-resolution connectivity to their music production systems with the introduction of the MY16-mLAN, the newest addition to Yamaha's line of compact Mini-YGDAI plug-in cards.
Available in December, the MY16-mLAN provides the interface hardware and connections required to link Yamaha 02R96 or 01V96 digital mixers to an mLAN network, the high performance computer networking protocol. This connection allows multiple channels of digital audio and multiple ports of MIDI to be transmitted and controlled via a single IEEE 1394 Firewire cable, significantly reducing the number of discrete connections.
The 24-bit/96kHz compatible MY16-mLAN card provides up to sixteen channels of audio I/O. The unit will insert into any of the four designated MY card slots on the rear panel of the 02R96 or the slot on the 01V96, seamlessly integrating with the mixer's normal operation. Bundled mLAN Patchbay application software provides audio and MIDI signal routing on both Mac and Windows XP-based systems, eliminating the need for extra PCI cards or interface hardware.
The MY16-mLAN will easily integrate the 02R96 and 01V96 into an Open Network Expansion (O.N.E.) System, an mLAN-based setup that allows the user to choose different software and hardware from Yamaha and more than 43 third-party licensees, including Apple, Lexicon and Apogee.
