Debbie -I bought a used 01v several years ago as an upgrade from a Mackie 1642, dbx1046, Lexicon and SPX90 effects, and have been very happy. While the newer 01v96 is much better, the original 01v is still a very capable mixer.Took it to Advanced Musical Electronics and had the ground issue fixed, so haven't had any problems since. Having 4 aux mixes with recallable motorized faders, parametric EQ and dynamics on all channels and aux outs and mains is a huge plus.It also is not the easiest mixer to get around, and took me several readings of the manual and setting it up in my garage to learn how to do things for several days so I wasn't trying to do it in the middle of the show. ADAT cards are under $300 for this, so expandable as well. For our band, it's mostly vocals and a little bit of keyboard to reinforce, so I'm fine with 12 mic pres.

Sounds like some of the Kubota shop manuals I dealt with back when I worked in the tractor shop at a local dealer. Somehow important stuff always got lost in translation.
I don't think it's a Japaneses translation thing, as much as just the way Yamaha writes their manuals.
That may have been Kubota's problem too; I just know they tended to be hard to understand. They do make some good compact tractors though; I know if I was in the market for one that's what I'd buy.</topic swerve>
Yamaha's manuals tend to read like functional references. If you know what you're trying to accomplish and need to know how the Yamaha implements that function, you're usually OK. If you are looking for a "getting started guide" you're in trouble.
