ygdai cards
 
Hi everybody ever so sorry to bother you lovely lot again ive recently purchased a yamaha 03d mix console and it came with an aes ebu ygdai card and the 25 pin cable with 8 xlr plugs. In the manual states they are 8 digital input and output channels which will then able me to use the other channels of the mix layer function. And il be honest im not entirely sure what i can use it with.

ideally I'd like to to use them as outputs so I can have the signal go to my audio interface for the purpose of radio broadcast and free up the aux channels currently being used. But like I said im not sure how I have thought of replacing it with a Yamaha Cd8 Ad Analogue Input / Output Expansion Card but looking at size differences doesnt look like it will fit. Ebay auctions state that card will for multiple mixers can any one help me before i spend on something that won't fit

Thank you in advance

Yamaha offer a range of YGDAI cards which are compatible with the 03D https://uk.yamaha.com/en/products/pr...rds/index.html

The link is for all the analogue cards available, but there are multiple digital formats available as well.

You have the AES/EBU card which can output 4 x 2 channel AES lines (there are two different cards. The one with the 'S' suffix offers up to 96kHz sample rate. The other card only goes to 48kHz) via your D Sub cable.

If you go for the analogue o/p card with the D Sub output, there are various different wiring standards for analogue and digital, and Yamaha and other manufacturers (Tascam/T-DIF being the other main standard)

So can I use the Dsub cable I already have with an analogue card or is it exclusively for the card I already have

Thanks
