SPX2000 Professional Multi-Effect Processor Discontinued
Superb Sonic Quality with 24bit/96khz Standard Throughout
The heart of SPX2000 hardware is the 96kHz audio DSP, with 32-bit internal processing (58-bit accumulator) which offers abundant processing power for the advanced effect algorithms. The 24-bit 128-times over-sampling AD/DA converters deliver 106dB dynamic range and flat response from 20Hz to 40kHz at 96kHz sampling rate. Both are in line with the DM series Digital Production Console quality.
Refined Preset Programs Including the Newly Developed "REV-X" Reverb Algorithm
The SPX2000 memory is organized into three banks: "PRESET," "CLASSIC" and "USER." The PRESET bank contains 97 programs, 17 of which feature Yamaha's acclaimed REV-X reverb algorithms. REV-X reverb programs deliver the richest reverberation tone and smoothest decay available. There are separate REV-X Hall, REV-X ROOM, and REV-X PLATE algorithms, and corresponding new parameters such as ROOM SIZE and DECAY ENVELOPE that contribute to higher definition and finer reverb nuance. The other 80 presets are popular SPX programs such as gate reverbs, delays, pitch effects, modulation and other special effects. Other advanced algorithms ... such as Multi-band Dynamic Processors ... are inherited from the DM series Digital Production Consoles. All programs have been created through detailed listening and editing by leading engineers. The "CLASSIC" bank contains 25 programs reminiscent of the original presets from early SPX models such as the SPX90II. The "USER" bank can store 99 user programs.
Professional Audio I/O and Control Connectors
SPX2000 Rear Panel houses, for analog connection, XLR type (w/latch) and quarter inch L + R INPUT and OUTPUT connectors both with +4dBU/-10dBu selector switch. Professional digital connection is secured with AES/EBU XLR type I/O connectors and BNC WORDCLOCK IN connector. Also MIDI IN, OUT/TROUGH and USB TO HOST connectors are provided for remote control and data management using computers, Digital Consoles or any MIDI device. Foot Switch connector for effect tempo control is placed on the front panel.
SPX2000 Editor for Mac OSX and Windows
The supplied SPX2000 Editor application makes it easy to edit and manage data from a personal computer, as well as remotely control the SPX2000 directly from the computer. The SPX2000 Editor provides a common operating environment and interface for the SPX2000 and Yamaha digital mixing consoles.
