Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha mLAN8E. The mLAN8E is an expansion board that
provides an mLAN interface. mLAN is a digital network designed for music and based on the IEEE
1394 high performance serial bus. mLAN makes it easy to construct sophisticated networks for
audio and MIDI signals without having to re-configure the cabling as was necessary with
previous systems.
The mLAN8E includes mixer functionality, and is a powerful enhancement to your music
production system.
In order to take full advantage of the mLAN8E’s functionality, please read this manual carefully.
After reading this manual, keep it for future reference.
Installing the mLAN8E
Installation of the mLAN8E must be performed by one of the qualified Yamaha service personnel or Yamaha dealers listed at the end of the manual of the device in which the mLAN8E is to
be installed.

About the included CD-ROM
The included CD-ROM contains software that is useful when used in conjunction with the
mLAN8E. The software includes “mLAN Patchbay” which allows audio /MIDI signal routing
between electronic musical instruments connected to the mLAN8E to be controlled from your
computer, and “mLAN Mixer” which allows the mixer/dynamics processor functionality of the
mLAN8E to be controlled from your computer. For details refer to the separate “mLAN Tools
Installation Guide.”
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or
modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
The illustrations and LCD screens shown in this Owner’s Manual are for instructional purposes only, and
may appear somewhat different from those on your device.

Features
mLAN is a digital network designed for music. It uses the IEEE 1394 high performance serial bus,
and allows you to construct systems that are more sophisticated yet simpler than ever before. For
details on mLAN, refer to the separate “mLAN Guidebook.”
■ 16 channel mixer functionality*
English
■ Fast data transfer via mLAN
A 16 channel digital audio mixer is built in.
■ Built-in equalizer / dynamics processor*
A four-band equalizer and dynamics processor provide sophisticated audio control.
* Mixer / equalizer / dynamics processor settings are made using the included “mLAN
Mixer” application. For details refer to the mLAN Mixer manual (electronic manual).

A SERIAL I/O jack
This jack is used to connect the mLAN8E directly to a personal computer via a serial cable. Use this
jack to connect the mLAN8E and the computer when you are using the mLAN Patchbay and mLAN
Mixer on Windows. This is not used to input or output MIDI and audio signals. Refer to page 7 for
more information on the connections.
B mLAN (IEEE1394) jacks
These jacks are used to connect mLAN devices or IEEE1394-compatible devices via IEEE1394 standard (6-pin) cables. Each jack has an LED in the upper left corner to indicate the following statuses.
green : The mLAN8E or connected device is a “leaf” node.
off
: Not connected.
red
: If the cable is disconnected, the sound will be interrupted on a connected device or other
device.
C RT/ERR LED
This LED indicates the following statuses.
green : The mLAN8E is a “root.”
orange : An error has occurred. (IEEE1394 bus-related)
red
: An error has occurred. (Other errors)
off
: Status other than above.
NOTE
Refer to “LED Messages” on page 21 for information on the error indication.
D ACTIVE LED
This LED indicates the following statuses.
blue
: The relay function is active.
off
: The relay function is disabled.
NOTE
6
Since the mLAN8E does not function as a bus relay when the power is turned off, the active
LED also indicates whether the power to the unit is on (blue) or off.

Connections
Connecting an mLAN (IEEE1394) device
Use an IEEE1394 standard (6-pin) cable to connect the mLAN (IEEE1394) jack on the mLAN
(IEEE1394) device to the mLAN (IEEE1394) jack on the mLAN8E. At this time, you do not have to
turn off the power to either device.

Connecting a Windows computer (serial connection)
Use a serial cable to connect the computer’s RS232C jack to the mLAN8E’s SERIAL I/O jack. At this
time, make sure that the power to the computer and the device in which the mLAN8E is installed
is turned off.
NOTE
Make this serial connection when using the included software on Windows. To use on a Macintosh, connect the mLAN8E’s mLAN jack and the Macintosh’s FireWire port using an IEEE1394
cable. (See “Connecting an mLAN device.”)
Use a standard D-SUB 9P → MINI DIN 8P cable.

NOTE
There are no mLAN input plugs corresponding to the A/D INPUT of the CS6x/CS6R/S80.
The diagram on the left illustrates the entire signal flow.
The mLAN8E has 16-channel digital mixer functionality, and can mix mLAN audio signals with audio
signals produced by the device that contains the mLAN8E.
The input/output destinations of these signals and the mixer functionality can be easily controlled
from your computer by using the included mLAN Tools.
NOTE
The mLAN8E mixer section features Direct mode and Mixer mode. When the mLAN Mixer is
not being used, the unit is in Direct mode, in which signals are input and output directly. When
mLAN Mixer is being used, the unit enters Mixer mode. The default setting (when you turn on
the power to the unit) is Direct mode. If you turn the power to the device off, then on while
mLAN Mixer is running, restart mLAN Mixer.
*1 The included mLAN Mixer application is required in order to make digital mixer settings. For details on
the structure of the digital mixer section, refer to the block diagram of the mLAN Mixer manual.
*2 For mLAN audio inputs, you can select from any 8 channels on the bus (system).
