Buena Park, CA - May 13, 2008 - Yamaha has updated its 01V96V2 and 02R96V2 digital mixing consoles. The new 01V96VCM and 02R96VCM models retain the V2 features and add VCM effects pre-installed.
Previously available as an add-on effect package, the Yamaha VCM channel strip processors and REV-X reverb are now standard features on the 01V96VCM. These effects are based on Virtual Circuitry Modeling technology that models the original analog circuitry.
The new 02R96VCM is the 02R96 Version 2 plus an array of processing technologies. Included are recreations of classic compression and EQ units from the 70's, simulations of several analog open-reel tape decks, a suite of REV-X reverb effects, a surround post-production package and a selection of vintage stomp boxes.
The new 01V96VCM and 02R96VCM models are currently available at Yamaha dealers. Customers who purchased an 01V96V2 or 02R96V2 from January 1, 2008 are eligible to receive a free update CD. More information is available at www.yamaha.com.
