The MY16AE Mini-YGDAI Digital I/O card can be used with Yamaha's DM2000, 02R96, DM1000 and future digital consoles to provide up to 16 channels of simultaneous AES/EBU-format (D-sub 25 pin) I/O via a single expansion slot. All 16 channels can be used independently at sample rates up to 48-kHz, or the MY16AE card can be used for "double channel" connection to 96-kHz recorders providing 8 channels of I/O at 88.2 or 96-kHz.
Although the DM2000, DM1000 and 02R96 handle 96-kHz audio as standard, most of the currently available digital recorders can handle 96- kHz audio only in double channel mode (using 2 tracks to make one). In this configuration the DM2000, DM1000 and 02R96 use one channel for one (96-kHz) track, but twice the number of I/O connections must be used. The newly introduced MY16-AT/TD/AE cards can handle 16 channels of 44.1/48-kHz audio or up to 8 channels of 96-kHz audio in double channel mode. With the newest recorders that handle 96-kHz audio as standard (in double speed mode like the DM2000, DM1000 and 02R96) you can make standard connections using the MY8- AE96(S) card. MY8-AE96(S) card can work either in double speed or single speed mode.
