Important Information
Read the following before using the SREV1
Warnings
• Do not subject the unit to extreme temperatures, humidity, direct sunlight, or dust,
which could be a potential fire or electrical shock hazard.
• Do not allow water to enter the unit or allow it to get wet. Fire or electrical shock may
result.
• Connect the power cord or AC adapter only to an AC outlet of the type stated in this
Owner’s Manual or as marked on the unit. Failure to do so is a fire and electrical shock
hazard.
• Hold the power-cord plug or AC adapter when disconnecting from an AC outlet. Never
pull the cord. A power cord damaged through pulling is a potential fire and electrical
shock hazard.
• Do not touch the power plug or AC adapter with wet hands. Doing so is a potential electrical shock hazard.
• Do not place heavy objects, including the unit, on top of the power cord. A damaged
power cord is a fire and electrical shock hazard. In particular, be careful not to place
heavy objects on a power cord covered by a carpet.
• Do not place a container with liquid or small metal objects on top of this unit. Liquid
or metal objects inside this unit are a fire and electrical shock hazard.
• Do not scratch, bend, twist, pull, or heat the power cord. A damaged power cord is a
fire and electrical shock hazard.
• If the power cord is damaged (e.g., cut or a bare wire is exposed), ask your dealer for a
replacement. Using the unit with a damaged power cord is a fire and electrical shock
hazard.
• Do not plug several pieces of equipment into the same AC outlet. This may overload
the AC outlet, and could be a fire or electrical shock hazard. It may also affect the performance of some equipment.
• If you notice any abnormality, such as smoke, odor, or noise, or if a foreign object or
liquid gets inside the unit, turn it off immediately. Remove the power cord or AC
adapter from the AC outlet and consult your dealer for repair. Using a unit in this condition is a fire and electrical shock hazard.
• Do not place small objects on top of the unit. Metal objects falling inside is a fire and
electrical shock hazard.
• If a foreign object or water gets inside the unit, turn it off immediately. Remove the
power cord or AC adapter from the AC outlet and consult your dealer for repair. Using
a unit in this condition is a potential fire and electrical shock hazard.
• If the unit is dropped or the cabinet damaged, turn off the power, remove the power
plug or AC adapter from the AC outlet, and contact your dealer. If you continue using
the unit without heeding this instruction, fire or electrical shock may result.
• Do not remove the unit covers. You could receive an electrical shock. If you think internal inspection, maintenance, or repair is necessary, contact your dealer.
• Do not attempt to modify the unit. This is a potential fire and electrical shock hazard.
SREV1—Owner’s Manual
ii
Important Information
• Do not block the front panel air inlet, ventilation slots, or fan outlets. Doing so is a
potential fire hazard.
Cautions
• Allow enough free space around the SREV1 for normal ventilation. This should be 20
cm behind, 10 cm at the sides, and 30 cm above. These distances should also be adopted
when rack-mounting the SREV1. If the SREV1 is mounted in a portable rack case, keep
the rear of the case open when using the SREV1 so as not to obstruct the flow of air from
the two cooling fans. If the airflow is not adequate, the SREV1 will heat up inside and
may cause a fire. Do not mount the SREV1 above equipment that produces a lot of heat,
such as a power amplifier.
• Turn off all audio equipment when connecting to the unit, and use only cables of the
type specified in this Owner’s Manual.
• If you plan not to use the unit for a long period of time, remove the power cord or AC
adapter from the AC outlet. Leaving the unit connected is a potential fire hazard.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, cleaning detergent, or a chemical cloth to clean the unit.
Use only a soft, dry cloth.
• If the unit is stored in a cold place (e.g., overnight in a car), and then moved to a warmer
environment, or if the temperature rises sharply, condensation may form inside the
unit, which may affect performance. In this case, the unit should be allowed to acclimatize for about one hour before use.
• When the wordclock is changed on the wordclock master device, noise may occur from
the SREV1’s outputs, especially if an MY8-AT I/O card is installed, so turn down your
power amps beforehand, otherwise any connected speakers may be damaged.
• If the RC-SREV1 displays the message “LOW BATTERY” when you turn on the unit,
ask your Yamaha dealer to replace the internal battery as soon as possible. The unit will
still work, but data other than backed up data will be lost. We recommend that you save
this data to a PC Card before replacing the battery.
• For electrical safety reasons, it’s important that the SREV1 is grounded properly. The
supplied power cord has a three-pin plug, and if the ground terminal of the AC outlet
is grounded, then the SREV1 will be grounded sufficiently through the power cord. If
the AC outlet does not provide a suitable ground, however, a ground connection should
be made to the dedicated grounding screw.

iii
Handling CD-ROMs
• Use only discs of the type specified in this Owner’s Manual.
• The CD-ROM drive is for use with data discs only. Never insert audio CDs.
• Store discs in a place free from extreme temperatures, humidity, dust, and dirt.
• Always store discs in their cases.
• When handling discs, be careful not to touch the surface. Hold discs by the edge. Fingerprints, smudges, scratches, or dirt can affect performance.
• Be careful not to scratch the labeled side of the disc. Even scratches on that side can
affect performance.
• Fingerprints and dust should be removed by wiping gently from the center of the disc
towards the disc edge, using a soft, dry cloth. Never wipe in a circular motion and never
rub a disc hard with a dry cloth.
• For stubborn stains and dirt, use a cleaning kit designed specifically for use with CDs.
Do not use benzene, thinner, cleaning detergent, or a chemical cloth.
• For disc marking, use only pens specifically designed for writing on CDs and write only
on the designated area. Do not attach a label to a disc.
• If a disc is stored in a cold place (e.g., overnight in a car), and then moved to a warmer
environment, or if the temperature rises sharply, condensation may form on the disc
surface, which may affect performance. In this case, the disc should be allowed to acclimatize for about one hour before use.
• Do not under any circumstances attempt to use discs that are cracked or warped. Doing
so may seriously damage the unit.
Handling PC Cards
• Use only PC Cards of the type specified in this Owner’s Manual.
• Some PC Cards and PC Card adapters cannot be used with the SREV1.
• Do not eject a PC Card while the activity indicator is lit. Doing so may cause data lose.
• Store PC Cards in a place free from extreme temperatures, humidity, dust, and dirt.
• Always store PC Cards in their cases.
Precautions for Transportation
During transportation, keep the CD-ROM door shut with tape, or a pad, or the like.
• When using tape, use tape that adheres well to the front panel.
• When using a pad, use a pad stiff enough that the elasticity holds the tray in place.

Chapter 1—Welcome
Welcome to the SREV1
Thank you for choosing the Yamaha SREV1 Sampling Reverberator.
Unlike conventional digital reverberators, which synthesize reverberation using contrived signal-processing algorithms, the new SREV1 Sampling Reverberator from
Yamaha employs digital convolution processing to impose an acoustic “fingerprint” of
a previously measured environment onto any audio signal, faithfully recreating the
original reverberation, with accurate reflection detail identical to that produced had the
sound been heard in that environment. The SREV1 is perfect for recording studios,
audio post, broadcast, concert halls, theaters, or anyone looking for superb quality
reverb that sounds just like the real thing, with the option to sample the reverberation
characteristics of any location for use back in the studio.
The SREV1 in a Nutshell
Sonic “fingerprints” are produced by measuring the impulse response (i.e., acoustic
characteristics) of an environment, which involves “blasting out” time-stretched pulses
through an accurate speaker system and recording the results via carefully placed
microphones. The resultant impulse-response data can then be used by the SREV1 to
convolve the captured acoustic characteristics onto any audio signal.

In addition to stereo reverb (2-channel mode), the SREV1 offers four-channel processing for surround reverb (4-channel mode). Alternatively, the SREV1 can be configured
as two fully independent reverberators (2-channel x2 mode), each with its own inputs,
outputs, and program settings.
Thirty-two of Yamaha’s new convolution chips provide the necessary “horsepower” for
real-time convolution of up to 5.46 seconds per channel (2-channel mode), 2.73 seconds per channel (4-channel or 2-channel x2 mode). Featuring an additional 32 convolution chips, the optional DB-SREV1 DSP Expansion Board doubles the available
convolution time to a maximum of 10.92 seconds per channel (2-channel mode), 5.46
seconds per channel (4-channel or 2-channel x2 mode).
Measured impulse response data is combined with variable parameters such as reverb
time and initial delay to form reverb programs, which can be stored in special Quick
SREV1—Owner’s Manual

memories or the Internal Card or PC Card. Up to six programs can be stored in Quick
memory in 2-channel or 4-channel mode; 12 in 2-channel x2 mode. Programs in
Quick memory can be recalled instantly via the optional RC-SREV1 Remote Controller
or MIDI Program Changes.
Projects, which contain all the Quick memory programs and the current program settings, provide a convenient way to manage programs and settings for each job. Projects
can be stored on the Internal Card or PC Card.
The PC Card slot is fully compatible with the PC Card ATA specification and supports
the FAT16 file system. The CD-ROM drive supports the ISO9660 Level 2 format. Both
the PC Card and CD-ROM format is compatible with Windows.
The supplied CD-ROM contains preset reverb programs of famous venues from
around the world, and a CD-ROM library is planned for future release. The preset programs on the supplied CD-ROM are loaded into the Internal Card at the factory.
Program editing is handled at two levels: Main parameters and Fine parameters. With
Main parameter editing, channel parameters, such as reverb time, initial delay, reverb
balance, EQ, etc., are grouped, so that, for example, the reverb time of all channels can
be set simultaneously. Fine parameter editing adds pre-convolution 4-band PEQ,
post-convolution 4-band PEQ, and impulse-response data loading. Reverb parameters
can be edited individually or grouped. Reverb balance and reverb level parameters for
each channel can be controlled individually via MIDI Control Changes.
Two AES/EBU inputs and outputs (providing 4 channels) are built in and two mini
YGDAI (Yamaha General Digital Audio Interface) slots offer various analog and digital
I/O options (AES/EBU, ADAT, Tascam). Inputs can be assigned to channels individually, allowing various input/output configurations. In 2-channel mode, for example, a
single input can be assigned to both channels (left and right) for mono in/stereo out
operation, or an individual input can be assigned to each channel for true stereo in/stereo out operation.
Superb sonic performance is provided by Yamaha’s new convolution chip, 24-bit I/O,
32-bit internal signal processing, and 48 kHz internal wordclock. External wordclocks
of 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz are supported and can be sourced via the dedicated BNC wordclock input, AES/EBU inputs, or card slot inputs.
Up to four SREV1s can be controlled using the optional RC-SREV1 Remote Controller,
which features a large 320 x 240 dot graphical display, with fluorescent backlight and
adjustable brightness and contrast, four motorized faders for parameter editing, and
input and output clip indicators. Power is supplied by the SREV1.

SREV1 Basics
Reverb Modes
The SREV1 offers three Reverb modes: 2-channel, 4-channel, and 2-channel x2. In
2-channel mode, the SREV1 functions as a stereo reverb processor. Use this mode if all
you require is stereo outputs, as it offers the maximum convolution time per channel.
In 4-channel mode, the SREV1 offers 4-channel processing for surround reverb. In
2-channel x2 mode, the SREV1 functions as two independent stereo reverb processors
(A and B).
See page 34 for information on selecting Reverb modes.
The onboard AES/EBU inputs and mini YGDAI slot inputs can be freely assigned to
channels. See “Assigning Inputs” on page 35 for more information.
Convolution Times
The following table shows the maximum convolution time available per channel for
each mode with and without the optional DB-SREV1 DSP Expansion Board installed.
Maximum Convolution Time per Channel (Fs = 48 kHz)
Mode
Base System
with DSP Expansion Board
(DB-SREV1)
2-channel
5.46 sec
10.92 sec
4-channel
2.73 sec
5.46 sec
2-channel x2
2.73 sec
5.46 sec
Convolution time is not the same as reverb time. Reverb time is the time it takes the
reverb to decay to –60 dB, and more convolution is required to provide reverberation
to –90 dB or –120 dB, so the convolution time must be between 1.5 and 2 times more
than the reverb time.
Impulse-Response Data
Impulse-response data contains the impulse-response information (i.e., acoustic characteristics) of a measured environment. Preset programs come with their own
impulse-response data. Each channel of a program is assigned impulse-response data,
as shown below, and data can be loaded for channels individually on the Data Load
pages. See “Loading Impulse-Response Data” on page 61 for more information. The
impulse-response data for the preset programs is loaded into the Internal Card at the
factory. It’s also on the supplied CD-ROM.

Programs
There are two types of reverb program: 2-channel and 4-channel. Two-channel programs are for use with 2-channel mode and 2-channel x2 mode, while 4-channel programs are for use only with 4-channel mode. In 2-channel mode, 4-channel programs
do not appear in the program lists and vice versa. The preset programs on the supplied
CD-ROM are loaded into the Internal Card at the factory. User programs can be stored
in the Quick memories, Internal Card or PC Card, where they can be write-protected.
Projects
Projects contain all the Quick memory programs and the current program settings and
free you to leave a project and come back to it at any time. Projects can be saved to the
Internal Card or PC Card, where they can be write-protected.
There are three types of project: 2-channel, 4-channel, and 2-channel x2. Each project
type is available only when the corresponding mode is selected. You can’t, for example,
select a 2-channel project in 4-channel mode. Projects are managed on the Project
pages. See “Working with Projects” on page 48 for more information.
Quick Memories
Quick memories are special memories for storing programs. Unlike programs on the
Internal Card, PC Cards, and CD-ROMs, which take time to load, Quick memory programs can be recalled instantly. There are six Quick memories available in 2-channel or
4-channel mode; 12 in 2-channel x2 mode. Quick memories are managed on the Program pages. See “Working with Quick Memories” on page 42 for more information.

Drives
Programs, projects, and impulse-response data can be loaded from the following
drives: Internal Card, PC Card, or CD-ROM. The number of programs that can be
stored on each drive depends on its capacity and the size of the associated
impulse-response data. Programs and drives are managed on the Library pages. See
“Working with the Library” on page 45 for more information.
The following diagram shows how programs and projects can be transferred to and
from the drives and Quick memories, and impulse-response data transferred from the

C AC IN connector
This connector is used to connect the SREV1 to a suitable AC outlet by using the supplied power cord. See “Connecting the Power Cord” on page 26 for more information.
D Grounding screw
For safety reasons, it’s important that the SREV1 is grounded properly. The supplied
power cord has a three-pin plug, and if the ground terminal of the AC outlet is
grounded, then the SREV1 will be grounded sufficiently through the power cord. If the
AC outlet does not provide a suitable ground, however, a ground connection should be
made to this grounding screw. Grounding is also an effective method for eliminating
hum, interference, and other noise.
E DIGITAL OUT (AES/EBU) connectors
These two XLR-3-32-type connectors (AES1 and AES2) transmit up to four output signals, two per connection, as AES/EBU format digital audio. Output to channel assignments are fixed. See “Output Assignments” on page 9 for more information. Use only

Chapter 4—Basic Operation
SREV1 Startup
When the SREV1 is turned on, its INPUT and OUTPUT signal indicators light up in
sequence. During this time, the SREV1 loads impulse-response data for the current
program and the programs in Quick memory from the Internal Card, and, if necessary,
from the PC Card or CD-ROM. At this time, the SREV1 cannot be used. After about 30
seconds, when the necessary impulse-response data has been loaded, the CLIP and
SIGNAL indicators go out and the SREV1 is ready for use.
Note that the startup time will be different if the current program or the programs in
Quick memory are on PC Card or CD-ROM.
If the SREV1 does not output any sound, check your audio connections, and the input
assignments. See “Assigning Inputs” on page 35 for more information.
RC-SREV1 Startup
In Principle, the RC-SREV1 should be started up after the SREV1 has completed its
startup. However, when the RC-SREV1 is connected to one SREV1 using the supplied
remote cable, and that SREV1 is supplying power to the RC-SREV1, so long as the
RC-SREV1 POWER switch is set to the ON position, the RC-SREV1 will be turned on
at the same time as the SREV1 is turned on, and the RC-SREV1 will startup normally.
If, however, you are using multiple SREV1s, connected together using serial cables,
make sure that all SREV1s have completed startup before turning on the RC-SREV1.
When the RC-SREV1 is turned on, startup screen 1 appears for one second. Then startup screen 2 appears with an animated waveform moving from left to right. During this
time, the RC-SREV1 receives necessary operating information from the SREV1 via the
serial cable. When all the information has been received, the Program page appears.
When the RC-SREV1 is turned on after the SREV1 has completed its startup, the above
procedure takes 15 seconds.
When the RC-SREV1 is turned on at the same time as the SREV1, it takes 45 seconds to
start up, although the actual time will depend on the time it takes the SREV1 to start up.
If there is no animation on startup screen 2, there may be a communication error
between the SREV1 and RC-SREV1. In this case, turn off both units and check the
remote cable connections, also check for breaks in the cable.

During startup, the SREV1 loads the necessary programs into the current and Quick
program memories in order to restore the SREV1 to the same state it was in before it
was last turned off. If any of these programs were previously loaded from a PC Card or
CD-ROM and then stored to a Quick memory, the same PC Card or CD-ROM will be
required to restore the contents of the Quick memories. In this case, be sure to insert
the necessary PC Card or CD-ROM before starting the SREV1. Although the SREV1’s
battery-backed memory stores the titles of the current and Quick memory programs,
it does not store the actual program or impulse-response data, so this must be loaded
each time the SREV1 is started.
If a necessary PC Card or CD-ROM is not inserted, the message “DATA FILE NOT
FOUND! INSERT PCMCIA CARD” or “DATA FILE NOT FOUND! INSERT
CD-ROM DISC” appears once the RC-SREV1 has completed startup. In this case,
insert the necessary PC Card or CD-ROM and try loading again.
Note that the above information regarding necessary PC Cards and CD-ROMs also
applies to changing the Reverb mode and loading projects.

Metering
37
Metering
Input and output signal levels can be metered in several places: the 14-segment meters
on the RC-SREV1 display pages, the 11-segment meters on the Meter I/O page, the
SIGNAL and CLIP indicators on the SREV1, and the CLIP indicators on the
RC-SREV1. The Peak Hold function works with all of these meters. See “Using Peak
Hold” on page 39 for more information.
14-segment Meters
Input and output signal levels can be metered by using the 14-segment meters that
appear on most RC-SREV1 display pages. In 2-channel mode, input and output signal
levels can be metered simultaneously. In 4-channel or 2-channel x2 mode, however,
either the input or output levels can be metered, not both simultaneously. See “Setting
the Meter Mode” on page 39 for more information.
The 14-segment LCD meters have the following resolution: CLIP / –3dB / –6dB / –9dB
/ –12dB / –15dB / –18dB / –24dB / –30dB / –36dB / –42dB / –48dB / –54dB / –60dB.

Chapter 5—Editing Programs
Main 1 Parameters
Basic parameters, including Reverb Time, Initial Delay, Pre EQ Low Gain, and Pre EQ
High Gain, can be adjusted on the Main 1 pages. In 2-channel x2 mode, two Main 1
pages are available: Main1-A and Main1-B. Channels are grouped, so adjusting, say, the
Reverb Time parameter, adjusts the reverb time of all channels simultaneously. In
2-channel x2 mode, A and B parameters are grouped independently. These parameters
can be adjusted for each channel individually on the Fine parameter pages. See page 56
and page 57 for more information.
The graphs and parameter values of only one channel are displayed at a time. You can
choose which channel by using the buttons in the DISPLAY CHANNEL section of the
page. Below that section is the REV graph, which displays the reverb parameter settings
graphically, and the PRE-EQ graph, which displays the Pre EQ settings graphically. If
the EQ is turned off on the Pre EQ page (see page 57), the EQ graph appears shaded.
The Main 1 pages for each mode are shown below.

Basic parameters, including Reverb Balance, Input Level, Output Level, and Pre EQ
HPF frequency, can be adjusted on the Main 2 pages. In 2-channel x2 mode, two Main
2 pages are available: Main2-A and Main2-B. Channels are grouped, so adjusting, say,
the Reverb Balance parameter, adjusts the reverb balance of all channels simultaneously. In 2-channel x2 mode, A and B parameters are grouped independently. These
parameters can be adjusted for each channel individually on the Fine parameter pages.
See page 56 and page 57 for more information.
The graphs and parameter values of only one channel are displayed at a time. You can
choose which channel by using the buttons in the DISPLAY CHANNEL section of the
page. Below that section is the REV graph, which displays the reverb parameter settings
graphically, and the PRE-EQ graph, which displays the Pre EQ settings graphically. If
the EQ is turned off on the Pre EQ page (see page 57), the EQ graph appears shaded.
Likewise, if the HPF filter type parameter is set to THRU on the Pre EQ page, that also
appears shaded.
The Main 2 pages for each mode are shown below.

SREV1—Owner’s Manual
62
Chapter 5—Editing Programs
Impulse-response data (TM4 format) created by using IRSampler, the
impulse-response sampling software, or IREdit, the impulse-response editing software,
can be loaded into the SREV1 from a PC Card. The RC-SREV1 looks for
impulse-response data stored in the “\yamaha\srev\data” folder of the PC Card, so you
need to make a new folder called “data” in “x:\yamaha\srev\” and then copy your
impulse-response data into it. (Note that “x” refers to the letter assigned to your PC
Card while it’s inserted in your PC.)
The 2-channel (SP2) and 4-channel (SP4) programs that you create are stored in the
“\yamaha\srev\prog” folder, and 2-channel, 4-channel, and 2-channel x2 projects are
stored in the “\yamaha\srev\proj” folder. When you copy or move any of these files to
another PC Card by using your PC, be sure to use the same folder organization and
naming, otherwise, the SREV1 will not be able to find the files.
Note that the SREV1 can only list up to 128 files in a folder, so do not put any more files
than that into a folder. If you do have more than 128 files in a folder, the SREV1 lists the
first 128 files copied to the folder in alphabetical order.

MIDI & the SREV1
The SREV1 supports the following MIDI messages:
• Program Changes to recall up to 12 Quick memory programs
• Control Changes for Reverb Balance and Reverb Level control
These MIDI messages are not transmitted when actions are performed on RC-SREV1.
Quick memory programs can be assigned to MIDI Program Changes and then recalled
remotely from other MIDI equipment. When a Program Change message is received,
the program stored in the assigned Quick memory is recalled. See “Assigning Quick
Memory Programs to Program Changes” on page 70 for more information.
The Reverb Balance and Reverb Level parameters for each channel can be assigned to
MIDI Control Changes and then controlled remotely from other MIDI equipment.
When a Control Change message is received, the assigned parameter is controlled. See
“Assigning Parameters to Control Changes” on page 71 for more information.
The SREV1 can be set to receive Program Change and Control Change messages on any
MIDI Channel from 1 through 16, and in 2-channel x2 mode, individual MIDI Channels can be set for A and B. See “Setting the MIDI Receive Channels” on page 69 for
more information.
Note: Do not control the SREV1 by using MIDI messages and the RC-SREV1 simultaneously.
MIDI Ports
The MIDI IN and OUT ports are used to transmit and
receive MIDI messages. The MIDI IN port receives
messages, while the MIDI OUT port currently echoes
the messages received at the MIDI IN port, essentially
like a MIDI THRU port.

When a Control Change message is received, the assigned parameter is controlled. If the
Rev page is selected, you can see the parameter value update, and if the parameter is the
currently selected parameter, then the corresponding fader moves as well.
If a Control Change is assigned to more than one parameter, all the assigned parameters
are controlled when that Control Change is received.
Since Control Changes are assigned to channels individually, they are not affected by
the GROUP button on the Rev page. Even if channels are grouped, only the assigned
channel parameter is controlled when a Control Change message is received.
If a page selected by using the [PARAMETER FINE] button is displayed when a Control
Change message is received, the corresponding fader moves and the graph and parameter values change, causing the Edit status indicator to appear.
If a page selected by using the [PARAMETER MAIN] button is displayed when a Control Change message is received, the corresponding fader, graph, and parameter value
do not change. Only the Edit status indicator appears. To update the fader, graph, and
parameter value, select another page, then select the previous page again.
The following illustration shows the type of MIDI equipment that can be used with the
SREV1 for remote parameter control using Control Change messages.

Chapter 8—Wordclocks
Wordclocks & the SREV1
Unlike analog audio equipment, digital audio equipment must be synchronized when
digital audio signals are transferred from one device to another, otherwise, signals may
not be received correctly and audible noise, glitches, or clicks may occur. Synchronization is achieved using what’s called a wordclock, which is a clock signal for synchronizing
all the digital audio signals in a system. Note that wordclocks are not the same as
SMPTE/EBU timecode or MIDI timecode, which are typically used to synchronize tape
machines, MIDI sequencers, and so on. Wordclock synchronization refers to the synchronization of the digital audio processing circuits inside each digital audio device.
In a typical digital audio system, one device operates as the wordclock master, and the
other devices operate as wordclock slaves, synchronizing to the wordclock master.
Wordclock signals can be distributed via dedicated cables, typically BNC cables, or
derived from digital audio connections, such as AES/EBU.
If you’re connecting to the SREV1 using only analog inputs and outputs, no special
wordclock settings are required, and the SREV1 can be set to use its own internally generated wordclock. If you’re connecting other equipment digitally, however, you must
decide which device to use as the wordclock master and which devices to use as slaves.
The SREV1 can be used as a 48 kHz wordclock master, or slaved to an external wordclock source of 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz. It can receive an external wordclock signal via an
AES/EBU input, SLOT input, or the BNC WORD CLOCK IN connector.
In a system where all devices share a common wordclock, it’s important that all devices
be turned on even if they’re not being used. Turn on the wordclock master first, and
then the slaves. When shutting down the system, turn off the slaves first, and then the
master. Before use, make sure that the wordclock slaves are correctly locked to the
wordclock master. Most devices have front panel indicators, similar to the FS LOCK
indicators on the SREV1, to show when they are wordclock locked. Refer to the relevant
owner’s manuals for more information.
When the wordclock source is changed, lower the volume of your system just in case a
device becomes unlocked and outputs any unpleasant noises.
Wordclock Connections
The WORD CLOCK IN BNC connector is used to
receive wordclock signals from other digital audio
equipment. When the wordclock source is set to
WCLK IN, the SREV1 locks to the wordclock signal received at the WORD CLOCK IN connector.
See “Wordclock Hookup Examples” on page 78 for
more information.
The WORD CLOCK IN is auto-terminating.
SREV1—Owner’s Manual
WORD CLOCK IN
An external wordclock can
also be sourced from an
AES/EBU input or the slot
input of a digital I/O card.

Selecting the Wordclock Source
Note: When the wordclock source is changed on the wordclock master device, noise may
occur from the SREV1’s outputs, especially if an MY8-AT I/O card is installed, so turn
down your power amps beforehand, otherwise any connected speakers may be damaged.

Press the [ENTER] button to activate the selected source.
The SREV1 checks the selected source to see if a usable wordclock signal is available. If
such a signal exists, the SREV1 locks to it and the corresponding FS LOCK indicator,
44.1 kHz or 48 kHz, lights up.
If a usable wordclock signal is not found, the SREV1 will not operate and the FS LOCK
indicators flash, as shown in the following table. In this situation, you must select
another wordclock source or correct the external wordclock source. This condition also
occurs if a previously selected external wordclock source is disconnected, the device
supplying it is turned off, or the external wordclock is neither 48 kHz nor 44.1 kHz.
The following table shows the indicator status when the SREV1 is synced and locked to
its internal wordclock or an external source.

I/O Options & the SREV1
In addition to the two AES/EBU inputs and outputs, the SREV1 features two mini
YGDAI (Yamaha General Digital Audio Interface) slots for use with optional I/O cards,
which offer several analog I/O options and digital I/O interfaces in all the popular digital audio interconnect formats, including AES/EBU, ADAT, and Tascam.
The Yamaha AW4416 Audio Workstation, 01V Digital Mixing Console, D24 Digital
Multitrack Recorder, DME32 Digital Mixing Engine, AD824 AD Converter, and DA824
DA Converter also use mini YGDAI I/O cards. Note that the “CD” series of YGDAI cards
used by the Yamaha 02R Digital Recording Console and 03D Digital Mixing Console
are not interchangeable with mini YGDAI cards.
Slot inputs can be freely assigned to SREV1 channels. See “Assigning Inputs” on page
35 for more information. Channel-to-slot output assignments are fixed. See “Output
Assignments” on page 9 for more information.
Available I/O Cards
The following mini YGDAI cards are currently available. See the Yamaha Professional
Audio Web site at the following URL for up-to-date news on mini YGDAI cards:
<http://www.yamaha.co.jp/product/proaudio/homeenglish/>.
MY8-AD: 8 Analog Inputs
The MY8-AD card provides eight electronically balanced analog inputs via phone jack
connectors, with 20-bit 128-times oversampling A/D converters.
MY4-AD: 4 Analog Inputs
The MY4-AD card provides four electronically balanced analog inputs via female XLR
connectors, with 24-bit 128-times oversampling A/D converters.
MY4-DA: 4 Analog Outputs
The MY4-DA card provides four electronically balanced analog outputs via male XLR
connectors, with 20-bit 128-times oversampling D/A converters.
MY8-AT: ADAT
The MY8-AT card provides ADAT format digital I/O via two MultiChannel Optical
Digital Interface connectors, and supports 16-, 20-, and 24-bit wordlengths.
MY8-AE: AES/EBU
The MY8-AE card provides AES/EBU format digital I/O via a 25-pin D-sub connector,
and supports 16-, 20-, and 24-bit wordlengths.
MY8-TD: Tascam
The MY8-TD card provides Tascam format digital I/O via a 25-pin D-sub connector,
and supports 16-, 20-, and 24-bit wordlengths. A BNC connector is provided for wordclock output.
MY8-TD cards feature a device selector switch (EXT: 88/INT: 38) that should be set to
match the device being connected. This should be set to “EXT: 88” when connecting a
Tascam DA-88, or “INT: 38” when connecting a Tascam DA-38 or other digital audio
device.

As these specifications show, analog I/O cards offer either inputs or outputs, while digital I/O cards offer both inputs and outputs.
When an I/O card not listed above, for example, a future addition to the mini YGDAI
series, is installed, the message “UNKNOWN CARD” appears.
Choosing I/O Cards
For analog I/O with XLR-type connectors, an MY4-AD card could be installed in, say,
SLOT 1, and an MY4-DA card in SLOT 2, although it makes no difference which card
is installed in each slot.
To connect the SREV1 to other digital audio equipment, you must determine which
digital interconnect format—AES/EBU, ADAT, or Tascam—the other equipment supports, and then install the necessary I/O cards.
The following table shows which cards to use when connecting the SREV1 to other
Yamaha digital audio products. Each product can be connected by using the AES/EBU,
ADAT, or Tascam interface format.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Cannot turn on the
SREV1.
Advice
Make sure that the power cord is connected properly to a suitable AC wall outlet
and the SREV1. See “Connecting the Power Cord” on page 26 for more information.
Make sure that the SREV1 POWER switch is set to ON. See “Turning On & Off the
SREV1” on page 26 for more information.
If you still cannot turn on the SREV1, contact your Yamaha dealer.
The POWER indicator
lights up when the SREV1
is turned on, but the
INPUT and OUTPUT
indicators flash
alternately.
Cannot turn on the
RC-SREV1.
Contact your Yamaha dealer.
Make sure that the remote cable is connected between the SREV1 and RC-SREV1
properly. See “Connecting the RC-SREV1 Remote Controller” on page 22.
Make sure that the RC-SREV1 POWER switch is in the ON position. See “Turning
On & Off the RC-SREV1” on page 26 for more information.
The FS LOCK indicators
flash alternately.
The SREV1 is locked but not synchronized to the external wordclock source. See
“Selecting the Wordclock Source” on page 75 for more information.
The FS LOCK indicators
flash together.
The SREV1 is neither locked nor synchronized to the external wordclock source.
See “Selecting the Wordclock Source” on page 75 for more information.
The FS status section of
the RC-SREV1 display
shows “UNLOCK”.
The SREV1 is neither locked nor synchronized to the external wordclock source.
See “Selecting the Wordclock Source” on page 75 for more information.
If you’re using slot inputs, make sure the I/O cards are installed properly and
secured using the thumbscrews. See “Installing I/O Cards” on page 84.
Make sure the input is assigned to the proper channel. See “Assigning Inputs” on
page 35 for more information.
Connected an input
signal but there’s no
output.
Use the level meters to help trace the signal. See “Metering” on page 37 for
more information.
Check the channel’s input and output level settings. See “Setting Input & Output
Levels” on page 36 for more information.
Is the Bypass mode is set to REV-MUTE, the reverb balance set to 100%, and the
reverb level set to –∞?
Are you connected to the correct outputs? See “Output Assignments” on page 9
for more information.
Is the SREV1 bypassed. See “Bypassing the SREV1” on page 40 for more information.
Can’t hear any reverb.
Make sure that the Reverb Balance parameter is not set to 0%. See “Main 2
Parameters” on page 54 and “Fine Reverb Parameters” on page 56 for more
information.
Make sure that the Reverb Level parameter is not set to 0 dB. See “Fine Reverb
Parameters” on page 56 for more information.
Recalled a program but
only its title is displayed,
no program number.
Probably because the program was recalled from a drive. Program numbers
(P01–P12) are displayed only when programs are recalled from the Quick memories. See “RC-SREV1 Display” on page 18 for more information.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Advice
Cannot store a Quick
memory program.
Is the selected Quick memory write-protected? See “Protecting Quick Memory
Programs” on page 44 for more information.
Cannot list the programs,
projects, or impulse
response data files on a
PC Card.
Make sure the PC Card is fully inserted. See “Using PC Cards” on page 29 for
more information.
Cannot list the programs,
projects, or impulse
response data files on a
CD-ROM.
Make sure the CD-ROM is inserted correctly. See “Using CD-ROMs” on page 28
for more information.
A program is being
recalled unknowingly.
Is the program assigned to a MIDI Program Change and being recalled by external MIDI messages? See “Assigning Quick Memory Programs to Program
Changes” on page 70.
A parameter is being
adjusted unknowingly.
Is the parameter assigned to a MIDI Control Change and responding to external
MIDI messages? See “Assigning Parameters to Control Changes” on page 71.

Glossary
2-channel mode—In this mode the SREV1 functions as a stereo processor.
4-channel mode—In this mode the SREV1 functions as a 4-channel surround processor.
2-channel x2 mode—In this mode the SREV1 functions as two independent stereo
processors (A and B).
ADAT interconnect format—The digital audio interconnect format typically
found on ADAT-compatible digital audio equipment. Eight channels of digital audio
are carried per fiber-optic connection using Toslink connectors.
AES/EBU interconnect format—The digital audio interconnect format, established by the AES (Audio Engineering Society) and EBU (European Broadcasting
Union), for transferring digital audio data between professional digital audio equipment.
Two channels of digital audio (left/odd and right/even) are carried per balanced line.
CD-ROM (Compact Disc Read Only Memory)— The compact disc format for
data storage. Defined in the Yellow Book.
Control Change—A type of MIDI message offering real-time parameter control.
Typical Control Changes include Modulation, Volume, Pan, and Portamento.
Convolution—The digital audio process of imposing the characteristics of one signal
onto another signal. The SREV1 convolves an acoustic “fingerprint” of a previously
measured environment onto an audio signal, faithfully recreating the original reverberation, with accurate reflection detail identical to that produced had the sound been
heard in that environment.
Convolution time—Convolution time is not the same as reverb time. Reverb time is
the time it takes the reverberation to decay by –60 dB, and more convolution is required
to provide reverberation down to –90 dB or –120 dB, so the convolution time must be
between 1.5 and 2 times more than the reverb time.
DIO—Abbreviation for “digital input and output.”
Drives—Programs, projects, and impulse-response data can be stored on the following drives: Internal Card, PC Card, or CD-ROM. (The Internal Card is compact flash
memory.)
FAT16—The FAT (File Allocation Table) system, developed by Microsoft and supported by MS-DOS and most Windows operating systems, is essentially a database that
records where files are stored on hard disks and other storage media. FAT12 is the original 12-bit version. FAT16 is the 16-bit version, since superseded by the 32-bit version,
FAT32, which supports larger storage devices.
FS—Abbreviation for “sampling frequency.”
Impulse response—The sound pressure measured at a sensor position set against
the time of an acoustic pulse “fired” from the source position. In other words, an environment’s acoustical response.
Initial delay—The delay before the reverb reflections start.
ISO9660 Level 2—A standard format for storing files and directories on a CD-ROM.
Conforming discs can be read by Macintosh, Windows, UNIX, and other systems.
Library—The place used to load, save, title, protect, and delete programs from the
Internal Card, PC Card, and CD-ROM.
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)—The standard digital interface
for controlling electronic musical systems and audio equipment.
SREV1—Owner’s Manual
94
Glossary
mini YGDAI (Yamaha General Digital Audio Interface)—The second-generation YGDAI interface system used on the 01V Digital Mixing Console, D24 Digital
Multitrack Recorder, DME32 Digital Mixing Engine, and SREV1.
PC Card—A small, credit card-sized device for use with personal computers and other
electronic devices. PC Cards come in three thicknesses, the thinnest being Type I, which
is typically used for RAM or ROM memory. Type II cards, which are slightly thicker,
may contain, for example, a fax/modem, while Type III cards are thick enough to contain a hard disk drive.
PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association)—The organization responsible for the development of the PC Card standard.
Peaking—A type of EQ circuit used to cut and boost a band of frequencies, producing
a mountain-peak type response. The width of the band is called the Q. Middle-band
EQ is usually of the peaking type. Compare with Shelving.
PEQ—Abbreviation for “parametric EQ.”
Program—Measured impulse response data is combined with variable parameters
such as reverb time and initial delay to form reverb programs. Preset programs are supplied on CD-ROM. User programs can be stored in the Quick memories, Internal Card
or PC Card.
Program Change—A type of MIDI message for recalling programs.
Project—A Project contains all the Quick memory programs and the current program settings. Projects can be stored on the Internal Card or PC Card.
Q—The unit used to express a filter’s width. High values imply a narrow frequency
band, low values, a wide frequency band.
Quick memory—Quick memories are special memories for storing programs.
Unlike programs stored on the Internal Card, PC Card, or CD-ROM, which take time
to load, Quick memory programs can be recalled instantly.
Reverb mode—The SREV1 offers three modes of operation: 2-channel, 4-channel,
and 2-channel x2. In 2-channel mode, the SREV1 functions as a stereo processor. In
4-channel mode, the SREV1 offers 4-channel surround processing. In 2-channel x2
mode, the SREV1 functions as two independent stereo processors (A and B).
Reverb time—The time it takes the reverberation to decay by –60 dB. See also Convolution time.
RS-232C—An interface for connecting serial devices, offering a transmission distance
of approximately 15 meters, typically using 9- or 25-pin D-Sub connectors.
RS-422—A balanced interface for connecting serial devices, offering a transmission
distance of approximately 1 kilometer, higher data rates, and greater immunity to interference than RS-232C.
Shelving—A type of EQ circuit used to cut and boost frequencies above or below a set
frequency. It produces a shelf-looking response curve. High and low EQs are usually of
the shelving type. Contrast with Peaking.
Tascam TDIF-1 interconnect format—The Tascam Digital InterFace audio interconnect format typically found on Tascam TDIF-1-compatible digital audio equipment. TDIF-1 is a bidirectional, 8-channel format, which uses 25-pin D-sub connectors.
Wordclock—A clock signal used to synchronize the data processing circuits of devices
digital audio equipment.
YGDAI (Yamaha General Digital Audio Interface)—Yamaha digital audio
interface system offering a range of analog and digital input and output options for
Yamaha digital audio equipment, including AES/EBU, ADAT, and Tascam DIO.
