device back to the default factory settings. This can help you to resolve issues that prevent you from connecting a device to the
Mac after the device was previously connected to another computer, or where a device connection has become corrupted via software.
• If the computer enters an energy saving mode (sleep or suspend mode) while connected to the mLAN device, the Factory Set may not work properly. If such a case occurs, restart the computer, start the mLAN Auto Connector, execute the Connect to Mac function then execute Factory Set
again.
Transition Speed
The Properties dialog of each mLAN device features the Transition Speed parameter, letting you control how the wordclock frequency of the mLAN device (as slave) is synchronized with that of the mLAN device (as master) when the wordclock frequency of
the master device is changed.
Slow: When this is selected, the wordclock frequency of the slave mLAN device will be slowly changed to the same wordclock
frequency as that of the master mLAN device.
Fast: When this is selected, the wordclock frequency of the slave mLAN device will be quickly changed to the same wordclock
frequency as that of the master mLAN device. The drawback to this is that even though response to the frequency change
is quick, noise may be produced.

Setting the driver I/O buffer size (latency)
Audio signals may not be played back or recorded properly (for example, noise may be produced) while using the DAW software. Such a problem may be solved by adjusting the audio buffer size which can be adjusted on the Audio Driver window of
the DAW.
The higher buffer size reduces the load of the computer CPU but produces latency (time lag) during recording/playback. The
smaller buffer size may result in noise or the sound cutting off.
Make sure to set the I/O buffer size to an appropriate value depending on the speed of your computer, the CPU power available
in DAW, etc.
Special Note when using the MY16-mLAN
Yamaha MY16-mLAN provides the “01V” mode and “Other” mode. When using the 01V to which the MY16-mLAN
installed, make sure to set the MY16-mLAN to “01V” mode. For instructions, refer to the Owner’s Manual of the MY16mLAN. When using any other devices (such as DM2000, DM1000. 02R96, and 01V96), set the MY16-mLAN to the “Other”
mode.

may become unstable and create noise. When you are not using mLAN Driver, you can start up these applications again.
Connecting the mLAN devices
• The FireWire cable may be damaged. Cables that do not satisfy S400 standards may cause noise.
• There may be a noise-inducing device (such as a device containing a power inverter, etc.) near the FireWire cable. Move the cable
away from any possible sources of noise.
Setting on the mLAN devices and other external devices
• There may be a noise-inducing device (such as a device containing a power inverter, etc.) near cables connecting the mLAN device
or an external device. Move the cables away from any possible sources of noise.
The computer processing speed is too slow.
The computer’s CPU meter indicates a heavy processing load.
Playback response is delayed.
Insufficient tracks for recording or playback.
Settings on the computer
• Make sure that your computer satisfies the system requirements. Refer to “System Requirements” (page 4).
• If you are not using mLAN Driver, you can reduce the load on the computer by disabling mLAN Auto Connector or mLAN Graphic
Patchbay. Refer to pages 7 and 12.
An application, such as a DAW, fails to recognize mLAN Driver (audio/MIDI).
Settings on the computer

Settings on the computer
• The mLAN Driver may not have been installed or set up correctly.
• Make sure that the mLAN Auto Connector or mLAN Graphic Patchbay is active. (See pages 7 and 12.)
• When transferring/receiving audio data, make sure to set the bi-directional connection (mLAN device ↔ computer). Only one direction (only mLAN device → computer or only computer → mLAN device) may result in improper playback.
Connecting the mLAN device
• Make sure that the FireWire cable is connected properly, and that the power to the mLAN device has been turned on. Disconnect the
FireWire cable once, then insert it again.
• There may be a loop connection. Check the cabling to make sure that none of the devices are connected in a loop.

If FireWire devices other than the mLAN devices are connected to the computer, disconnect all FireWire devices from your computer, and try connecting a single mLAN device to your computer.
• There may be multiple FireWire interfaces installed on the computer. Since the mLAN Driver supports only the standard interfaces,
use only the standard FireWire interface of your computer and remove other FireWire interfaces.

MIDI Setup] in Utilities, the MIDI ports will be shown from an application as the name set within [Audio MIDI Setup]. Select the
appropriate MIDI ports.
• Make sure the transmission and reception channels of each device or an application (such as a DAW) match.
• Make sure the MIDI settings of the mLAN device are appropriate.
• Make sure that the power to the transmitting and receiving devices is turned on.
Connecting the mLAN device
• Make sure that the FireWire cable is connected properly.
• Make sure that the FireWire cable is not damaged.
Cannot use other connected Firewire devices correctly.
