As usual, I suggest you download the manual fr.
The features are too numerous to detail here.

At its features, it is able to do ANYTHING with a significant connectivity and especially thanks to EVOLUTIVE optional cards that can add to it.

The connection 16 in / out USB is really good (no problem, all PC / MAC have!)

Lowlight: the switches for the power supply fantom a little seedy ...


The setup is the height of his abilities. There are a lot of things to do but the logic is respected compared to other materials:
-Install the ASIO drivers
-Install the driver table
-Install the software management table (studio manager)

The manual is clear and French ... It's worth taking two days to read quietly with the table under the eyes.

As for the usual functions of the table there is a logic that repeats itself all the time. Once we understand this logic, it is a breeze.
FOR NEW USER the 01V96i: you will encounter moments of blocking always find a solution. To fully master the beast, it is essential to TAKE THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND! Useless to mix the night of the reception of the machine, you run the cata ... unless you have the habit of numerical tables.

All functions are easily accessible above the usual features: layers, patch etc ...
I compared with STUDIOLIVE 24 ... it is different but not better especially LESS STRONG!


Converters are absolutely transparent. Nothing to say.
I tested the machine REAPER under CUBASE SX, TRACKTION ...
This is clear. The preamps are flexible and linear provided it gives them a sufficient signal recess. Their power did not yet lacking (guitar piezo, piezo violin, voice, etc ...)

DYNAMICS: we have a battery of compressors, EQ configurable to infin but with very useful preset
I use this table to mix in studio effects and use the table to save CPU my laptop. I prefer effects (classic reverb, comp, eq) of the table to those CUBASE or REAPER. This is great when mêm mix live rather than see flashing on a screen.
It stores all settings in a memory bank ...

Unfortunately (or not?) She is still young and poorly recognized by the remote for DAW ... but that will come. Must set the daw hand!


I had a very complex set 01v96v2 for recording because Yamaha mLAN system.
But now it is night and day! Finally, the USB!

I compared with STUDIOLIVE we were talking so much!
I much prefer the solidity and reliability of the 01V96i. (Just call customer service to see yamaha 0164614047 ... top!)
Besides, we all know at least one old 01v which still works!
I love everything about this table and especially its USB interface that can record 16 in and 16 out in any app!

Icing on the cake: the software management table (StudioManager) which allows you to set the table, the piloting entirely from a computer and especially ... record all configs, all settings ... It is really useful!
Its price is placed in the middle of the competition, but it carries on the seriousness and solidity.
Presonus tables I tested look like toys ...
And they are firewire interface definitely dying.
