Optocore introduces Yamaha Sane enhancement
Optocore’s new Y3R-TP is a module designed for Yamaha mini-YGDAI slots, designed to interface on Optocore’s Sane network.
Fully compatible with all Yamaha pro devices it features 16 input/16 output audio channels through these mini-YGDAI slots, with word clock to/from the slot, to/from the network, and word clock transport to any device in the network.
The two Sane ports enable connection of multiple Y3R cards to the stand-alone Sane network or as a Cat-5-based extension to a 2Gbit Optocore ring. There is also a LAN slot, since all Optocore devices create a 100Mbit LAN network, and a 10/100Mbit Ethernet virtual switch to any Ethernet-enabled Optocore device. Also incorporated is a USB/RS-232/remote port for direct transport of the Yamaha HA Remote protocol via Optocore.
Finally, the card offers Yamaha Emulation Mode, making it possible to control Optocore preamps from four different consoles.
