Yamaha’s new TF-Rack is a powerful, compact, rack-mount version of the company’s TF Series digital mixing consoles. TF-Rack offers all of the features found in TF Series desktop models and is intended for smaller or more portable venues, particularly when a proper mix position may not be available. Its 3U rack space body includes such popular TF Series features as fast, accurate gain setup, single step compression and EQ, and microphone specific presets to even the most modest sound reinforcement applications. The TF-Rack is compatible with the TF StageMix app for wireless Wi-Fi remote mixing via iPad, and the MonitorMix app for aux send mixing via most smartphones or tablet PCs. With full fader views on its touch screen the TF-Rack is not Wi-Fi dependent, allowing users full control even if the network goes offline. Full specs after the jump.

TF-RACK also offers an intuitive set of controls for users with all levels of experience, including:

• 16+1 stereo inputs, 16 outputs

• 1-knob COMP and 1-knob EQ for fast, easy control over your sound

• GainFinder input setup for optimum gain structure

• QuickPro Presets optimized microphone, music and output presets that include popular model choices from Audio-Technica, Sennheiser, Shure and Ultimate Ears

• Instant loading single step scene recall

• Expansion capabilities of up to two stage boxes, as needed

• TouchFlow Operation for easy, efficient control combining Select Channel and Cetralogic interfaces with the touch screen functionality

• A comprehensive range of I/O connections directly on the rear panel

• An optional NY64-D Dante I/O card and Tio1608-D I/O rack
