Given that Yamaha’s 01V96i is probably the most popular digital mixer in the world, you’d think they’d be making some kind of underhanded attempt to cash in on its popularity by upping the price. No. They’re made of more honourable stuff over at Yamaha and have decided to shave £600 off the price instead. As you do.
Yep, the Yamaha 01V96i can now be yours for a mere £1399 (£1678.80 inc VAT), £600 less than usual. And this isn’t a limited time deal of some kind of buy-with-X-to-save-Y spending booby trap, it’s a permanent, no-strings price drop. Thanks Yamaha!
Why do I want a Yamaha 01V96i?
Mostly because it’s the most popular digital mixer in the world, and you don’t want anyone to think you live in the dark ages. But also because its a cross-platform, 16 in/out track mixing desk with a built-in USB 2.0 interface, which means it’s equally at home in recording and production environments or handling live sound.
It can record at up to 96kHz and comes with Steinberg’s Cubase AI software pre-installed – there’s even a cheap upgrade path from the free version to Cubase 7. However, the 01V96i can also be fully integrated with other major ASIO and Core Audio DAW software programs if they’re more your bag.
Also included is the full package of Yamaha VCM Effects plug-ins, high-resolution REV-X reverb and Yamaha’s acclaimed Virtual Circuitry Modelling (VCM) technology, while on the controls front you’re treated to 100mm motor faders, 99 scene memories for instant recall and fully configurable, user defined keys that can be adapted to any studio or sound reinforcement situation.
Plus there’s £600 off. We really can’t say that enough.
