An overview of the CL series
An overview of the
CL series
Features
CL series digital mixing consoles create high-quality,
refined, live-sound environments.
These consoles carry forward the digital evolution of a
broad array of advanced concepts, including Yamaha’s
exclusive “CentralogicTM” control interface, which helps to
make the consoles easy and intuitive to use.
The built-in effect processor and an I/O rack can
accommodate the most demanding situations at the
highest level of quality, while retaining the flexibility
necessary to configure a system that meets your needs.
User interface friendly to newcomers but
familiar to seasoned users
All channels routed to the top-panel faders are organized
into a “Fader Bank” that enables you to select and switch a
group of channels easily. The Fader Bank holds input and
output channel banks, as well as custom fader banks. The
custom fader banks enable you to select various
combinations of channels, regardless of channel types.
Each channel strip offers easy visual identification. The
channel name appears on a display, and an indicator shows
the channel color. You can adjust the brightness of each
indicator across a broad range to accommodate dimly-lit
environments.
The SELECTED CHANNEL section located to the left of
the display lets you use the knobs to control the main
parameters (gain, EQ, dynamics threshold, bus send levels,
etc.) for a particular channel. This section can be operated
much like a module in an analog mixer.
In the center of the top panel is the Centralogic section,
which enables you to control eight channels at once. You
can control fader, cue, on/off and other settings for the
eight channels or for DCA groups recalled to this section
by pressing a single key.
The display is a touch screen. You can turn functions on or
off or select items simply by touching buttons or knobs on
the screen.
Mix parameter settings, including gain and phantom
power for input channels, can be stored and recalled as
“scenes.” All faders on the panel are moving faders. When
you recall a scene, the recorded fader locations will be
reproduced immediately.
Flexible system configuration with Dante
The Ethernet-compatible Dante audio network protocol
facilitates connecting CL series consoles to external
devices, such as the Rio3224-D I/O rack. A connected I/O
rack that has been assigned a unique unit ID will
automatically be recognized and will facilitate patching
functions.
Using an I/O rack, you can configure a redundant network
to defend against unforeseen difficulties that can arise in
large-scale Dante networks. If multiple CL units share the
8
Owner’s Manual
same I/O rack, the gain compensation function will
maintain network audio streams at a constant level to help
you enjoy the benefits of a large-scale sound system.
The Dante Virtual Soundcard software driver enables you
to carry out multi-channel recording to DAW software
installed on a computer. Consequently, no other audio
interface is needed.
Ultra-realistic digital reproduction of
analog sound by PREMIUM RACK
The CL series features PREMIUM RACK, which employs
VCM technology. This technology models analog circuitry
on a component level to faithfully reproduce amazing
analog sounds. PREMIUM RACK creates stunning sounds
by modeling and faithfully capturing the sonic
characteristics of analog circuitry fine-tuned to be faithful
to the original sound. The CL’s PREMIUM RACK includes
six types, including a Portico 5033 EQ/Portico 5043
Compressor by Rupert Neve Designs, a U76 Compressor,
an Opt-2A Leveling Amplifier, etc.
Sonic flexibility from versatile effects and
GEQ rack
Independent of the PREMIUM RACK, high-quality
multi-effect processors are built into your CL series
console, with up to eight available simultaneously. Effects
such as reverb, delay, multiband compression, and various
modulation effects can be routed via internal buses or
inserted into the desired channel.
In addition to the effects, the CL series features a GEQ rack.
A 31-band graphic EQ and a Flex15GEQ are included and
can be inserted into any output bus. The Flex15GEQ allows
you to adjust the gain for any 15 of the 31 bands. Since two
GEQ units can be mounted in one virtual rack, a total of up
to 32 GEQ units can be used simultaneously. To use effects
or the graphic EQ, you mount them in virtual racks
displayed on the touch screen. The currently-mounted
modules can be seen at a glance, and you can switch
modules and change input/output patching in an intuitive
manner.
Complete support tools
The CL-series can be used with a variety of utility software.
CL Editor, which can be installed on Windows or Mac
computers, enables you to edit the unit’s parameter settings.
It can also operate as a stand-alone and lets you set
parameters off-line without connecting to the console.
CL StageMix, an application for iPads, offers remote
control of a networked CL series console from anywhere
within wireless range via an intuitive graphical interface.
The software has been specifically designed to allow
engineers to adjust EQ while monitoring mixes from the
performers’ positions on stage, or to control mix
parameters from various spots in the venue while listening
to the sound.
Console File Converter is an application that converts
PM5D/M7CL/LS9 settings files to or from the CL series
settings file format. You can use data from other models on
the CL series.
About the models
I/O card and processing card expansion
The rear panel provides three slots in which separately sold
mini-YGDAI cards can be installed. You can add inputs
and outputs by installing AD cards, DA cards, or digital I/O
cards in these slots. You can also expand processing or
effects by installing a DSP card.
Cascade connections in the digital
domain
You can cascade a second CL series unit or a digital mixer,
such as the Yamaha M7CL, PM5D or LS9, connected via a
digital I/O card installed in a slot.
You can cascade any of the MIX, MATRIX, STEREO (L/R),
MONO, and CUE (L/R) buses.

Recorder function useful for sound checks
and mix recording
The CL series features a USB memory recorder function
that enables you to record output from STEREO or MIX
buses onto a USB flash drive.
It also enables you to play audio files that reside on a USB
flash drive by assigning the files to input channels or
monitor outputs. The MP3 format (MPEG-1 Audio
Layer-3) is supported for recording. For playback, MP3,
WMA (Windows Media Audio), and MPEG-4 AAC
(Advanced Audio Coding) formats are supported. This
function can be useful if you want to record certain bus mix
outputs or play music for a sound check through speakers.

• Rapidly turning the unit on and off in succession can cause
it to malfunction. After turning the unit off, wait for at least 6
seconds before turning it on again.
• Even when the power switch is turned off, a small amount
of current is flowing through the unit. If you plan not to use
the unit for a long period of time, remove the power cable
from the AC outlet.
D Grounding screw
The supplied AC power cable is a 3-wire type.
Therefore, if the AC outlet used is properly grounded,
the CL will be grounded as well. Also, grounding this
screw may effectively eliminate noise such as hum and
interference.
Caution
If you plan to connect the PW800W, be sure to first
power-off both the CL unit and the PW800W. Then, use the
power supply cable (PSL360) to make the connection.
Failure to observe this caution may cause malfunction or
electric shock.
NOTE
• If a PW800W is connected, the CL series will operate
correctly whether its own internal power supply and the
PW800W are both turned on, or just one of them is turned
on.
• If both power supplies are turned on, and an abnormality
is detected in one of the power supplies, the CL series will
automatically switch to the other power supply. If this
occurs, the touch screen will display a message to inform
you.

Each Bank Select key holds a “Bank,” which bundles a
group of multiple channels.
“CUSTOM” Bank Select keys enable you to assign and
recall a bank with your own assortment of the
channels or DCA groups. These banks are called
“custom fader banks.” Since the custom fader banks
enable you to assign a combination of different types
of channels, you can control different types of
channels as a group.
2. Use the controls of the Channel Strip section.
Use the channel knob to adjust a parameter selected
by the [GAIN/PAN/ASSIGN] key.
Each channel’s display indicates the
currently-assigned channel information. For the

About network connections
■ Daisy chain network
A daisy chain is a wiring scheme in which multiple devices
are connected together in sequence. In this way,
networking is simple and requires no network switches.
This connection method is suitable for a simple system
with a small number of devices.
However, if a large number of devices are connected, the
latency value must be increased. Also, if a connection is
broken in a daisy chain network, the signal flow is
interrupted at that point and no signal will be transferred
beyond that point.
About Dante
This product features Dante technology as a protocol to
transmit audio signals. Dante is a network protocol
developed by Audinate. It is designed to deliver
multi-channel audio signals at various sampling and bit
rates, as well as device control signals over a Giga-bit
Ethernet (GbE) network. Dante also offers the following
benefits:
• It transmits up to 512 in/512 out, for a total 1024
channels (in theory) of audio over a GbE network. (The
CL series features 64 in/64 out with a 24/32-bit
resolution.)
• Dante-enabled devices will automatically configure their
network interfaces and find each other on the network.
You can label Dante devices and their audio channels
with names that make sense to you.
• Dante uses high accuracy network synchronization
standards to achieve sample-accurate playback with
extremely low latency and jitter. Four types of latency are
offered by the CL series: 0.25 msec, 0.5 msec, 1.0 msec,
and 5.0 msec.
• Dante supports resilient redundant connections against
unexpected network problems via primary and
secondary circuits.
• Connecting a Dante-enabled device to a computer using
an Ethernet connection enables you to directly input or
output audio signals without using any audio interface
devices.
By taking advantage of these benefits, you can: skip any
complicated procedures to automate connections and
setups of Dante-enabled devices; remotely control I/O
racks or amplifiers from a mixing console; or make
multi-track recordings to a DAW, such as Nuendo, installed
on a computer in the network.
There are two ways to connect the CL unit to a Dante
network.
■ Star network
In a star network, each device is connected to a central hub.
Using a GbE-compatible network switch enables you to
configure a wide-band, large-scale network. We
recommend a network switch that features various
functions to control and monitor the network (such as Qos,
the ability to assign priority to data flows — e.g., clock
synchronization or audio transmission on certain data
circuits.)
With this topology, it is common to configure a redundant
network so that an unexpected network problem will not
affect any audio or otherwise stable communications.
About redundant networks
A redundant network consists of two circuits, a primary
circuit and a secondary circuit. Normally, the network
operates on the primary circuit. However, if the primary
connection is broken, the secondary circuit will
automatically take over communications. Therefore, using
a redundant network with a star topology would increase
resiliency against unexpected network problems relative to
a daisy chain network.

monitor output.
❍ Could the DIMMER be applied?
❍ Could the MONITOR CH be assigned even though its
output port has not been connected to an external
device?
Signal is delayed.
❍ Could you have specified a fade time?
The panel LEDs or LCD display are too dark / too
bright.
❍ This can be adjusted in the SETUP screen.
❍ Check whether the delay setting for each input channel
and OUTPORT is set correctly.
Rotating a MIX knob does not change the send
level to the MIX bus.
❍ Is the TO MIX SEND ON/OFF button turned on?
❍ Is the MIX [ON] key turned on?
❍ Is the MIX bus set to VARI type?
❍ Could the fader have been lowered if the send point is
set to POST?
Cannot save scene memory or various library
data.
❍ Are you attempting to save the data to a read-only
scene/library or a protected scene?
❍ Could user level restrictions have been specified?
Cannot save to a USB flash drive.
❍ Could the USB flash drive be protected?

❍ Is the MIDI PORT selected correctly?
❍ Are the transmission and reception modes and channels selected correctly?
❍ Has an event corresponding to the particular Program
Change message been specified?
When you recall a scene, some
channels/parameters are not updated.
❍ Could that channel or parameter be set to Recall Safe?
❍ Could Focus be set in such a way that the channels or
parameters will not be updated?
❍ Could user level restrictions have been specified?
54
When you recall a scene, it takes a certain amount
of time for the faders to stop.
Owner’s Manual
Signal level of a specific frequency is low.
❍ Could the EQ gain be turned down excessively?
❍ Routing a signal through a GEQ or effect will delay it
relative to other signals. If this signal is mixed with
another signal that is routed via a different signal path,
a comb filtering effect will cause the level of a specific
frequency to be decreased.
Cannot control an I/O rack.
❍ Are the rotary switch and DIP switches on the I/O racks
set correctly?
❍ Does the channel being controlled match the channel
on the I/O rack?
Cannot control the CL unit from CL Editor.
