Yamaha Waves Y56K Plug-In DSP Expansion Card
The Waves Y56K processor card combines a DSP-powered effects engine with eight channels of ADAT lightpipe I/O and is designed to be compatible with Yamaha’s AW-series multitrackers (AW4416 etc).
This card fits into an I/O expansion slot, just like any other mini YGDAI card, and allows the user to create up to eight separate mono chains of effects (or four stereo) that can be deployed via inserts or aux sends according to the routing system of the host machine.
Each of the effect/processor algorithms is based on the Waves series of plug-ins and the set comprises the L1 Ultramaximiser, the Renaissance Compressor and Equaliser, a de-esser, the company’s Trueverb reverb processor and the Supertap multitap delay. All these have a well-deserved reputation both for sound quality and ease of use, with the L1 Ultramaximiser being particularly well suited to mastering.
This Yamaha Waves Y56K DSP Card is in Excellent Condition and was previously used in a Yamaha AW4416. It comes with it’s Original Box and Quick Start Guide.
