Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha MY8-mLAN. The MY8-mLAN is an interface card that
provides mLAN interfacing. 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 that can be re-configured without changing the physical cabling (as was
necessary with previous systems).
The MY8-mLAN adds two mLAN connectors to the Yamaha AW4416 or AW2816 professional
audio workstations, or to the Yamaha 01V digital mixing console etc. (Consult your Yamaha
dealer for details of other applicable Yamaha equipment.)

MY8-mLAN Installation Precautions
• Before beginning installation, switch off the power to the main unit and any connected peripherals, and unplug them from the power outlet. Then remove all cables connecting the main
unit to other devices. (Leaving the power cord connected while working can result in electric
shock. Leaving other cables connected can interfere with the installation procedure.)
• It is recommended that you wear gloves to protect your hands from sharp or pointed projections on the equipment.
• Board components may be damaged by electrostatic discharge. Be sure to drain any electrostatic charge from body and clothes before starting work. Keep hands clear of board components, board circuitry, and metallic leads while carrying out the installation.
• Handle the plug-in boards with care. Dropping or subjecting the card to any kind of shock may
cause damage or result in a malfunction.
• Do not touch the exposed metal parts in the circuit board. Touching these parts may result in a
faulty contact.
• Take care to avoid dropping screws into the main unit. If a screw does fall in, be sure to remove
it before you reassemble and power up the unit. Starting the unit with a loose screw inside may
lead to improper operation or to equipment failure. (If you are unable to retrieve a dropped
screw, consult your Yamaha dealer for advice.)

DIP switch (SW1) settings
English
The MY8-mLAN has a switch that specifies whether audio input/output and MIDI input/output via
mLAN will be enabled.
In this switch, moving the white slider toward the number will turn the setting “OFF,” and moving
it toward the side marked ON will turn the setting “ON.” The following settings are assigned to
each number 1–8.
Audio OUTPUT-Plug 1-8 (ON enables, OFF disables)
This specifies whether the audio output plugs will be enabled or disabled.
If this is ON, the eight audio output plugs will be enabled.
If this is OFF, the audio output plugs will be disabled.
Audio INPUT-Plug 1-8 (ON enables, OFF disables)
This specifies whether the audio input plugs will be enabled or disabled.
If this is ON, the eight audio input plugs will be enabled.
If this is OFF, the audio input plugs will be disabled.
MIDI INPUT-Plug, OUTPUT-Plug (ON enables, OFF disables)
This specifies whether the MIDI input/output plugs will be enabled or disabled.
If this is ON, one MIDI output plug and one MIDI input plug will be enabled.
If this is OFF, the MIDI plugs will be disabled.
–
MY8-mLAN number
This specifies the number of the module name.
When you are using multiple MY8-mLAN units together, use these ON/OFF switches to specify a number that will distinguish each unit from the others. This will be reflected in the module name (e.g., “MYmLAN31”) used when you make mLAN connection settings. When you
are using multiple MY8-mLAN units, there will be no problems with operation even if each
unit is set to the same number. However if you assign a different number to each unit, you will
be able to distinguish between units by the different module name that is displayed for each
unit when controlling them from software such as “mLAN Patchbay.”
NOTE
For details about mLAN connections/plugs, see page 11.

By setting these settings appropriately for the device in which the MY8-mLAN is installed, you can
construct an uncluttered and stable system.
For example on a device such as the Yamaha DA-824 (D/A converter) which provides only the
audio INPUT-Plugs described in , enabling the audio OUTPUT-Plugs described in will cause an
invalid plug to be displayed when you make mLAN connection settings, even though audio is not
actually being output to the mLAN bus. On systems that have plug information for numerous
devices, this will complicate the situation.

Connections
Here’s how to make connections from the MY8-mLAN to other mLAN devices or to your computer.
English
Connecting an mLAN (IEEE1394) device
Use an IEEE 1394 standard cable (6 pin) to connect the mLAN (IEEE 1394) jack of the MY8-mLAN
to the mLAN (IEEE 1394) connector of the other mLAN (IEEE 1394) device. When doing so, it is
not necessary to turn off the power of the mLAN (IEEE 1394) device or the host device in which
the MY8-mLAN is installed.

About mLAN connections
• Use the “mLAN Patchbay” application program to make settings from a Macintosh computer
that is equipped with a FireWire port.
• Use the “mLAN Patchbay” application program to make settings from a Windows computer
that is equipped with a COM port or other serial port. (However, you will need another mLAN
device that has a serial port.)
• Make settings from an mLAN-compatible device (such as the mLAN8P or a synthesizer in which
the mLAN option is installed).
English
If you want to use an IEEE 1394 cable to connect mLAN-compatible devices via their IEEE 1394
(FireWire) connectors and exchange audio or MIDI signals, you must make connection settings.
There are three ways to make connection settings.
The type of system in which the MY8-mLAN is being used will determine which of the above
three methods you use to make settings.
For each MY8-mLAN unit, eight channels of audio and one set of MIDI signals can be input and
output. When making mLAN connection settings, these audio and MIDI inputs and outputs are
handled as “plugs” — virtual connectors with a name assigned to each.
Each audio or MIDI output from the MY8-mLAN to another mLAN device is called an “OUTPUTPlug,” and each audio or MIDI input received by the MY8-mLAN from another mLAN device is
called an “INPUT-Plug.” Connections are made by connecting these plugs.
NOTE
For more information about mLAN connections/plugs, refer to the mLAN Guide Book.
