The name "SPX" has been synonymous with "professional multi-effect processor" for more than 15 years, and the models like SPX90, SPX90II, SPX900, SPX1000 and SPX990 have been the most commonly found equipment in the studio and SR racks.
Superb Sonic Quality with 24bit/96khz Standard Throughout
The heart of the SPX2000's hardware is its 96kHz audio DSP, with 32-bit internal processing (58-bit accumulator) which offers abundant processing power for its advanced effect algorithms.
Refined Preset Programs Including the Newly Developed "REV-X" Reverb Algorithm
There are 3 banks to the SPX2000's memory: "PRESET", "CLASSIC" and "USER". The "PRESET" bank contains 97 programs. 17 programs are made with the newly developed "REV-X" reverb algorithms. "REV-X" is a whole new generation of Yamaha Reverb programs with the richest reverberation tone and smoothest decay. There are "REV-X Hall", "REV-X ROOM" and "REV-X PLATE" algorithms.
Reliable and Efficient Front Panel User Interface with Colors
The SPX2000's hardware cosmetics are designed to offer optimum reliability for the engineers on site. The rugged aluminum front panel features 2 sets of "Cross-keys" - simple navigation tool anyone is familiar with. Parameters are sorted in 3 groups; "PARAMETER", "FINE PARAM" and "UTILITY" to ensure speedy access. Also other dedicated buttons like UNDO, COMPARE, BANK, MODE, METER, TAP, and BYPASS ensure efficient operations.
The SPX2000's LCD offers 5 back light color variations(!). You can freely assign any of the 5 colors to user programs. The preset programs are colored by effect groups giving you an instant recognition of the effect type even from the distance. (CYAN: Reverbs, WHITE: Delays, MAGENTA: Pitch & Modulations, YELLOW: Others, GREEN: CLASSIC Bank) RED is reserved for warning messages.
SPX2000 "OPERATION LOCK" function offers 3 security levels; from preventing accidental changing of Utility settings, or protecting stored memories to prohibiting almost all operations.
Professional Audio I/O and Control Connectors
Its 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/Thru 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 SPX2000 Editor will give you the editing, data management, and remote control capability using computers, in the same environment and common interface as the STUDIO MANAGER for Yamaha Digital Consoles.
