The Yamaha SPX90 is an amalgam of advanced acoustical research and digital technology designed to provide home recording enthusiasts a wide range of effects.
With its high-quality 20-bit sound, the Yamaha D5000 Professional Digital Delay (Used and loved by Bob Clearmountain) is the perfect choice for studio and sound reinforcement applications. It has four types of effect programs: DUAL (stereo) delay, SINGLE (mono) delay, FREEZE record and playback, and S&H (sample and hold) playback. The large amount of memory allows it to create delay lines or record samples of up to 10 seconds in duration.
The interface is simple and intuitive, with a large, easily-read LCD, allowing you to quickly produce exactly the effect you want. It features 100 program locations for storing your favourite effects for instant recall. For added flexibility, the D5000 can be controlled by MIDI, especially useful with the FREEZE record and playback effect. The Yamaha D5000 has 100 user programs. All of the programs are user-programmable.
There are four types of programs available:
Yamaha ships the Yamaha D5000 with preset programs that illustrate the features of each of the four types of programs.
The Yamaha D5000 must not have sold very well when it was released back in the mid 1990s. Or perhaps it sold very well and those who bought it don’t let them go very easily? I think it may be the later. Bob Clearmountain claims the Yamaha D5000 is the greatest digital delay ever made, perhaps he is right. So if you are after a digital delay that offers pristine sound quality and low noise, and one that imparts little of itself on your signal, then look no further than the Yamaha D5000.
