CONCEPTION. The main card YG2 includes the "heart of Optocore" allowing direct connection of Yamaha consoles to the Optocore OPTICAL DIGITAL NETWORK SYSTEM. According to the Yamaha miniYGDAI standard, the YG2 features 16In/16Out audio channels through the console slot. The front panel offers two fibre connections, 10/100MBit Ethernet transport, RS232/USB for Optocore Software and 2x RS422 for transporting of Yamaha Remote Protocol to AD8HR. Additional daughter boards YS2 can be connected via CAT5 Cables using the RJ45 "SUB" port, to enlarge the number of audio channel up to 64In/64Out (32In/32Out @ 96kHz).
To the fibre ports any Optocore device can be connected, e.g. another YG2 miniYGDAI card for consoles link or DD32(E) to connect A/D and D/A converters. The DD32(E) is equipped with RS422 In/Out for the Yamaha Remote Port connection.

Effects and Multi FX devices are devices that used in audio recording to alter the sound of audio sources like musical instruments by employing a range of digital sound effects. Also called a DSP Processor, Effects and Multi FX devices can alter audio sounds in a variety of different ways, and these changes can be either extremely subtle or hugely dramatic, depending on the type of digital effects unit which is used. A Multi Effects processor can be used in both sound recordings or live during a performance. Effects and Multi FX can be employed to great effect with a wide variety of musical instruments, although they are most often paired with electronic instruments such as keyboards, bass and electric guitars. Musicians and sound engineers use Multi FX devices such as fuzzboxes and wah-wah pedals to create a class of seven different sound effects, including Distortion, which clips the audio signal of an instrument, distorting the form of its sound waves and also adding overtones. Other sound effects which can be achieved by an effects processor include Dynamics, which simply boost the volume level, Filter, which is applied to alter an audio signalâ??s frequency, and Audio Feedback, which was pioneered by the legendary Jimi Hendrix. Effects and Multi FX processors are also used to create sounds that have irregular tonal properties, an effect known as modulation, and can also modify the Pitch of an audio signal. Lastly, an FX processor can also add time-based effects, such as delays or echoes.
