Yamaha's Nio500-A16 is a 16-channel analog interface with 16 analog line-level inputs and 16 analog line outputs on 4x DB25 connectors. Use AD96 CABLE-CA and DA96 CABLE-CA to break out to XLR-3 connections.

Designed with meticulous attention to details that make a real difference in the final sound, from parts selection to circuit layout, Nuage I/O audio interface units bring out the full sonic potential of the Nuendo DAW software. They include advanced DSP processing for stereo and surround monitoring, and use Dante network protocol for flexible system design and expansion. Three 16-channel models with different I/O configurations are available, usable individually or in combination for up to 128 channels.

Outstanding Sonic Quality Delivers Full System Potential
24 bit/192 kHz hardware operation in the Nuage I/O units ensures that the outstanding sonic detail and depth of the Nuendo DAW come through without compromise. The Nuage I/O units also feature advanced JetPLL™ jitter reduction technology for extremely low jitter and superior AD/DA resolution. The overall result is simply outstanding sound, no matter how complex the mix or how much processing is applied.  

True Integrated Monitoring with Ultra-low Latency
To artists and musicians trying to lay down tracks in the studio, monitoring latency can be a huge problem that interferes with concentration and stifles creativity. The Nuage I/O units make latency issues a problem of the past thanks to advanced audio interface DSP hardware and "True Integrated Monitoring™" that reduces monitoring latency to well below the perception threshold of even the most sensitive performer. True Integrated Monitoring™ works flawlessly with the Nuendo Control Room monitoring features, a 32 monitor bus cascade, and a 16x16 monitor matrix that contributes to expandability and easy setup.  

DSP Surround Processing
Surround processing capability is important in any post production system that will be used for a variety of projects. Nuage systems include all the essentials for state-of-the-surround sound, including speaker level/delay adjustments and bass management.  

Fuss-free, Flexible Network Connections
Dante is one of the most popular and well proven audio network protocols in use today, offering outstanding audio transmission quality and reliability as well as unrestricted system design and expandability. Because Nuage systems use Dante for system communication, connection between I/O unit and computer can be made via a single standard Ethernet cable. In more complex systems using multiple I/O units, standard network hubs and architecture can be used to configure the network as required. Flexible connectivity also means that a Nuage network can be linked to a live sound console, or included in a studio audio sharing installation.
