Yamaha CL Firmware v2.0 Now Available

by Jacob Coakley

Version 2.0 of the Yamaha CL Series Digital Audio Consoles firmware includes enhancements for sound reinforcement applications as well as mix-minus capabilities for the broadcast market. One significant enhancement in V2.0 is discovery and head amp control for the new, compact QL Series that also inherits CL Series features and performance. A QL console can function as both monitor mixer and I/O rack, for example, while a front-of-house CL console can remotely control the head amp gain of the QL console’s I/O. Other new features in CL V2.0 include DCA Roll-Out: Channels assigned to DCA groups can be instantly called up to the console faders for enhanced operational flexibility; output DCA enables the Stereo/Mono bus masters, Mix bus masters, and Matrix bus masters to be assigned to DCA groups.

Yamaha MonitorMix App for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

by Naomi Crews

Yamaha’s new MonitorMix App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is designed to enhance the capabilities of the company’s new TF Series digital mixing consoles. Available as a free download in the App Store, the MonitorMix app offers individual wireless AUX mixing from up to 10 iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices simultaneously, giving performers convenient control over the AUX buses assigned to them, without having to master complex settings or parameters. They can also create personal Group settings for even easier adjustment, including the ability to set all levels on just one fader, for example. Since up to three devices running TF Editor or StageMix and up to 10 devices running MonitorMix can be connected at the same time, even large bands can have the personal control they need, reducing demands on the sound engineer.
