Precautions
• Connect the mixer power cord only to the power supply
unit, and connect the power supply unit to an AC outlet
of the type stated in this Owner’s Manual or as marked
on the power supply unit. Failure to do so is a fire and
electrical shock hazard.
• Do not locate the mixer in a place subject to excessive
heat or in direct sunlight. This could be a fire hazard.
• Do not place the mixer in a place subject to excessive
humidity or dust. This could be a fire and electrical
shock hazard.
• Do not plug several devices into the same AC outlet. This
may overload the AC outlet, and could be a fire and electrical shock hazard. It may also affect the performance of
some equipment.
• Do not place heavy objects on the power cord. A damaged power cord is a potential fire and electrical shock
hazard.
• If the power cord is damaged (i.e., cut or a bare wire is
exposed), ask your dealer for a replacement. Using the
mixer in this condition is a fire and shock hazard.
• Hold the power cord plug when disconnecting from an
AC outlet. Never pull the cord. Damaging the power cord
in this way is a potential fire and electrical shock hazard.
• Do not place small metal objects on top of the mixer.
Metal objects inside the mixer are a fire and electrical
shock hazard.
• Do not try to modify the mixer. This could be a fire and
electrical shock hazard.
• The mixer operating temperature is between 5˚C and
35˚C (41˚F and 95˚F).
4
• Turn off all audio devices and speakers when connecting
to the mixer. Refer to the owner’s manual for each device.
Use the correct cables and connect as specified.
• If you notice any abnormality—such as smoke, odor, or
noise—turn off the mixer immediately. Remove the
power cord from the AC outlet. Confirm that the abnormality is no longer present. Consult your dealer for
repair. Using the mixer in this condition is a fire and
shock hazard.
• If a foreign object or water gets inside the mixer, turn it
off immediately. Remove the power cord from the AC
outlet. Consult your dealer for repair. Using the mixer in
this condition is a fire and electrical shock hazard.
• If you plan not to use the mixer for a long period of time,
remove the power cord from the AC outlet. Leaving the
mixer connected is a fire hazard.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, cleaning detergent, or a
chemical cloth to clean the mixer. Use only a soft, dry
cloth.
• The mixer is a heavy piece of equipment. Always grip the
underneath, not the side panels, when lifting.
• The mixer uses high-frequency digital circuits that may
cause interference on radios and televisions placed close
to it. If interference does occur, relocate the affected
equipment.
Features of the system
• The M3000-40C provides a generous number of input
modules; 40 monaural and 4 stereo (the M3000-24
provides 24 monaural and 4 stereo). Stereo output, 16
mix outputs, and 8 matrix outputs are provided in
addition. The M3000 is suitable for use in a wide
range of applications, such as the main mixer for
sound reinforcement, as a monitor mixer, or in building installations.
• The GA Diversity function allows each pair of MIX
buses 1/2–7/8 to be switched between group bus
(fixed output level from the input channels) and AUX
bus (variable output level from the input channels).
Bus configuration can be set up as needed.
• The Scene Memory function allows the on/off status
of the mono/stereo input channels, MIX OUT 1–16,
and STEREO A OUT to be saved as one of 128
“scenes.” Scenes can be selected from the front panel,
or by MIDI program change messages from an external device. In addition, MIDI control change messages transmitted from an external device can be used
to switch the individual on/off status of input channels or bus outputs channels.
• By modifying internal settings, Scene Memory numbers 1–8 can be used as mute groups. In this case, up
to eight mute (on/off) settings can be added/defeated
individually.
• The M3000-40C features a center master design that
places the master section in the middle of the mixer
for superior operability.
• All input channels provide a PFL switch, and an AFL
switch is provided for MATRIX OUT 1–8/MIX OUT
1–16/STEREO A OUT/STEREO B OUT. This makes it
easy to check your input/output sources.
• Eight independent matrices are provided. The signals
from MIX OUT 1–16/STEREO A OUT and dedicated
input jacks can be mixed at the desired levels, and output from MATRIX OUT jacks 1–8. This capability can
be used for foldback or as a mix for individual speakers/amps.
• All mono input channels, stereo buses, and MIX buses
provide an INSERT I/O jack. External effect processors can be inserted as necessary.
• The talkback signal and test tone oscillators can be
sent to any of the MIX buses 1-2–13/16 or the stereo
buses.
• As monitor sources for the monitor output, you can
select (in addition to STEREO A OUT), PFL from the
input channels, AFL/PFL from MATRIX OUT 1–8/
MIX OUT 1–16/STEREO A OUT/STEREO B OUT, or
2TR IN 1/2.
• Eight VCA master faders allow the gain of multiple
input channels to be controlled as a group. By grouping the desired input channels and assigning them to a
VCA master fader, you can adjust the mix as appropriate for the on-state action using the VCA master faders alone.
• The mono input channels provide a 26 dB pad, HPF,
phase switch, four-band parametric EQ, and 100 mm
full stroke faders as well as DIRECT OUT jacks. Phantom power is also provided, and can be switched on/
off individually.

Control panel
I M1–M8 switches
M M13/M14, M15/M16 switches
These switch on/off the signal which is sent from the
input channel to MIX buses 1–8.
These are on/off switches for the signals that are sent
from the input channel to MIX buses 13–16. M13 and
14, and M15 and M16 are stereo pairs, and each pair is
turned on/off by one switch. Use the PRE switch (P)
to switch between pre/post fader.
Note: If these switches are off, no signal will be sent
to the corresponding MIX bus from this input
channel, regardless of the switch setting of the variable/fixed select section (page 13).
N M13/M14, M15/M16 mix level controls
These controls send the signal from the input channel
to MIX buses 13–16. When the control is in the “▲”
position, the level is nominal (0 dB). M13 and M14,
and M15 and M16 are stereo pairs, and the output
level of each pair is controlled by one knob. Use the
PRE switch (P) to switch between pre/post fader.
J M1–M8 mix level controls
These controls send the signal from the input channel
to MIX buses 1–8. When the control is in the “▲”
position, the level is nominal (0 dB). Use the PRE
switch (P) to switch between pre/post fader.
O M13/M14, M15/M16 pan controls
Note: For MIX bus pairs for which the variable/fix
select section (page 13) switch is set to FIX, the output level which is sent from each input channel to
the bus will be fixed, and therefore the mix level
control setting will have no effect.
These controls set the panning of the signals that are
sent from the input channel to MIX buses 13/14 or
MIX buses 15/16. When the control is in the center
position, an equal amount of signal will be sent to
both buses.
K M9–M12 switches
P PRE switches
These are on/off switches for the signals that are sent
from the input channel to MIX buses 9–12.
These are pre-fader/post-fader switches for the signals
that are sent from the input channel to MIX buses 1–
16. Pre/post can be switched independently for each
group of MIX buses: 1–4, 5–8, 9–12, and 13–16. When
the switch is pressed ( ), the post-EG/pre-fader signal will be sent to the corresponding group of MIX
buses.
L M9–M12 mix level controls
These controls send the signal from the input channel
to MIX buses 9–12. When the control is in the “▲”
position, the level is nominal (0 dB). Use the PRE
switch (P) to switch between pre/post fader.

●In normal mode
The ON/EDIT switch will turn on the input channel.
When on, the ON indicator will light. Channels which
are turned off will send no signal to the ST bus or the
MIX buses. However even in this case, you can use the
PFL switch (W) to monitor the channel from the
MONITOR OUT jacks or the PHONE jack.
●In check mode
In check mode (page 33), you can use the CHECK
indicators to view the on/off status of each channel
stored in a scene before you actually recall the scene.
This is convenient when you wish to verify the status
of each channel before you recall a scene.
In check mode, you can also use the ON/EDIT
switches to change only the lit/dark status of the
CHECK indicators. (The actual on/off setting will not
be affected.) Use this when you wish to maintain the
current mix settings, and store partially modified settings as a scene.
T PEAK/NOM/SIGNAL indicators
Three indicators show the level of the input channel
signal after it passes through the EQ.
• PEAK indicator
This will light when the signal exceeds the nominal
level by 18 dB.
• NOM (nominal) indicator
This will light when the signal reaches nominal level
(0 dB).
• SIGNAL indicator
This will light when the signal reaches 10 dB below the
nominal level.

Control panel
U VCA GROUP select switches
V Channel fader
These switches select the VCA master fader(s) which
will control the signal output level of this channel.
When you select a VCA group 1–8, the indicator
located at the left of each switch will light, and the
corresponding VCA master fader (VCA master section
3) will control the channel. It is possible to select two
or more VCA groups for one input channel, or to control two or more input channels by the same VCA
group.
This fader adjusts the signal output level of the input
channel. This fader will affect the level of the signal
that is sent to the ST bus and to the MIX buses (if the
PRE switch is off). If one or more VCA groups are
selected by the VCA GROUP select switches (U), the
signal output level of that channel will also be affected
by the corresponding VCA master fader(s).
W PFL (pre-fader listen) switch
When this switch is on ( ), the pre-fader/post-EQ
signal of this input channel will be sent to the PFL
bus, allowing it to be monitored from the MONITOR
OUT jacks or the PHONES jack.
●Channels for which a VCA group is selected
The signal output level of the channel can be controlled both by the corresponding VCA master
fader(s) and by the channel fader (V). The settings of
all corresponding VCA master faders are summed
with the setting of the channel fader to specify the signal output level of that channel.
●Channels for which a VCA group is not selected
The signal output level of the channel can be controlled only by the channel fader (V).
Note: For details on VCA functions, refer to

pairs, and the output level of each pair is controlled by
one knob. Use the PRE switch (P) to switch between
pre/post fader.
L M13/M14, M15/M16 BAL (balance) controls
These controls set the left/right balance of the signals
that are sent from the stereo input channel to MIX
buses 13/14 or MIX buses 15/16.
M PRE switches
These are pre-fader/post-fader switches for the signals
that are sent from the stereo input channel to the MIX
buses. Pre/post can be switched independently for
each group of MIX buses: 1–4, 5–8, 9–12, and 13–16.
When the switch is pressed ( ), the pre-fader/postEQ signal will be sent to the corresponding group of
MIX buses.

P ON/EDIT switch/ON, CHECK indicators
The function of this switch and these indicators will
depend on the mode of the M3000.
●In normal mode
The ON/EDIT switch will turn on the stereo input
channel. When on, the ON indicator will light. Channels which are turned off will send no signal to the ST
bus or the MIX buses. However even in this case, you
can use the PFL switch (T) to monitor the channel
from the MONITOR OUT jacks or the PHONE jack.
●In check mode
You can use the CHECK indicators to view the on/off
status of each channel stored in a scene before you
actually recall the scene. This is convenient when you
wish to verify the status of each channel before you
recall a scene.
In check mode, you can also use the ON/EDIT
switches to change only the lit/dark status of the
CHECK indicators. (The actual on/off setting will not
be affected.)
For details on Check mode, refer to page 33.

• SIGNAL indicator
This will light when the sum of the L and R signals
reaches 10 dB below the nominal level.
These switches select the VCA master fader(s) which
will control the signal output level of this stereo input
channel. When you select a VCA group 1–8, the indicator located at the left of each switch will light, and
the corresponding VCA master fader (VCA master
section 3) will control the channel. It is possible to
select two or more VCA groups for one stereo input
channel, or to control two or more channels by the
same VCA group.
●Stereo input channels for which a VCA group is
selected
The signal output level of the channel can be controlled both by the corresponding VCA master
fader(s) and by the channel fader (S).
●Stereo input channels for which a VCA group is
not selected
The signal output level of the stereo input channel can
be controlled only by the channel fader (S).
Note: For details on VCA functions, refer to
page 38.
S Channel fader
This fader adjusts the signal output level of the stereo
input channel. This fader will affect the level of the
signal that is sent to the ST bus and to the MIX buses
(if the PRE switch is off). If one or more VCA groups
are selected by the VCA GROUP select switches (R),
the signal output level of that channel will also be
affected by the corresponding VCA master fader(s).
T PFL (pre-fader listen) switch
When this switch is on ( ), the pre-fader/post-EQ
signal of this stereo input channel will be sent to the
PFL bus, allowing it to be monitored from the MONITOR OUT jacks or the PHONES jack.
Control panel
A Variable/fixed select switches
Variable/fixed select section
These switches select whether the level of the signals
sent from the input channels to MIX buses 1–8 will be
fixed (FIX) or variable (VARIABLE). From top to bottom, these switch MIX buses 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8.
The M3000’s GA (Group/Aux) diversity function
allows MIX buses 1–8 to function either as group
buses or as AUX buses. In this section, you can switch
each pair of MIX buses (1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8) between
functioning as group buses or as AUX buses.

When you are in Utility mode, the indicator located
above the switch will light.
B RECALL switch
Use this switch to recall scenes from scene memory. If
you select a scene which has not been stored and
attempt to recall it, the MEMORY display (3) will
indicate “
” (No data) for approximately two seconds.
C MEMORY display
This is a three-digit LED display.
In normal mode and in check mode, it displays a
scene memory number 1–130.
Concerning the decimal point display
This will light if the
display number
contains no data. If
all memories contain
no data, this dot will
light when the M3000
is powered-on.
This will light when
bulk data is being
received from the
MIDI IN connector.
In normal mode, this
will light when you have
modified the settings of
the last-recalled scene.
In check mode, this will
light when you have
modified the settings of
the selected scene.
In utility mode, utility-related parameters are displayed here (for details refer to page 34).
D STORE key
Use this key to store a scene into scene memory. When
you press this switch once, the display will indicate
“
,” notifying you that the scene may now be
stored. At this time press the button once again to execute the Store operation. If you decide not to store the
scene, simply press any other button. Before storing a
scene memory, make sure that the Memory Protect
setting (page 34) is turned OFF.
Use these to step through scene memory numbers
consecutively. However, the read-only scenes in memory numbers 129/130 cannot be selected by these
switches, and must be selected using the 0–9/ENTER
buttons (6).
These switches are also used to select parameters in
Utility mode. However in Utility mode when the oP
(recall operation) parameter is set to “
,” scenes in
memory numbers 1–8 cannot be selected by these
switches, and must be selected using the 0–9/ENTER
buttons.
If either switch is held for longer than one second, the
value will change rapidly. (For details on parameter
content, refer to page 34.)
H DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches
The DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches can be used in
one of two ways, depending on the Utility mode setting. With the factory settings, they will function as
“direct recall” switches that will select the scenes of
memory numbers 1–8 at a single touch. By modifying
the Utility mode settings, you can also use these as
“mute group” switches that will simultaneously select
or defeat the mute (off) settings saved in memory
numbers 1–8. (For details on direct recall and mute
groups, refer to page 36.)
Note: Even if you press a DIRECT RECALL switch,
the scene will not change if no data has been saved
in the corresponding memory number. If this
occurs, the MEMORY display will indicate “
”
(No Data) for several seconds.
Note: Be aware that if you press a DIRECT RECALL
switch in check mode, check mode will be forced
off, and the scene will recalled.
E CHECK switch
Use this to switch from normal mode to check mode.
In check mode, the indicator located above the switch
will light.
F 0–9/ENTER buttons
Use these to numerically specify a scene memory
number. Use the 0–9 switches to enter a value, and
press the ENTER button to finalize that value.

LEVEL
F AFL switch
When the TO MATRIX switch of the mix section is
on, these controls adjust the level of the signal which
is input from the corresponding MIX OUT to the
matrix. The “▼” position is nominal level (0 dB).
This switch allows the output signal of the corresponding matrix 1–8 to be monitored from the
MONITOR OUT jacks or the PHONES jack. When
this switch is on ( ), the signal before passing
through the level control will be sent to the MAS PFL
bus, and the signal after passing through the LEVEL
control will be sent to the MAS AFL bus, allowing you
to monitor them from the MONITOR OUT jacks or
the PHONES jack.
When the monitor section MASTER PFL switch
(page 19) is off, you can monitor the signal of the
MAS AFL bus. When the MASTER PFL switch is on,
you can monitor the signal of the MAS PFL bus. However if even one of the input channel PFL switches is
on, the PFL bus will be given priority for monitoring,
meaning that it will not be possible to monitor the
matrix.
B STEREO A L/R controls
When the TO MATRIX switch of the STEREO A section is on, these controls adjust the level of the signal
which is input to the matrix from ST OUT A. The “▼”
position is nominal level (0 dB).
C SUB IN L/R controls
These controls adjust the level of the signal which is
input to the matrix from the rear panel MATRIX SUB
IN jacks (page 27). The “▼” position is nominal level
(0 dB).
D ON switch
This is an on/off switch for the output of the matrix.
When this is turned off, no signal will be transmitted
from the corresponding MATRIX OUT jack or to the
MAS AFL bus. However even in this case, if the AFL
switch (6) is turned on, the signal before passing
through the LEVEL control can be monitored from
the MONITOR OUT jacks or the PHONES jack.

It is also possible to connect two PW3000M units in
parallel as shown in the following diagram. In this
case, the two PW3000M units will each supply 50% of
the power in normal operation. Even in the unlikely
event that one of the PW3000M units failed, the other
PW3000M will supply 100% of the power, ensuring

About the GA Diversity functionality
The GA Diversity functionality of the M3000 allows
you to switch the MIX buses 1–8 between acting as
group buses (output level from the input channels
will be fixed) or acting as AUX buses (output level
from the input channels will be variable).
This functionality lets you use MIX bus pairs 1/2, 3/4,
5/6, or 7/8 either as group buses or as AUX buses, and
gives you the flexibility to configure the console as 8
group buses/8 AUX sends, 4 group/12 AUX send, or
16 AUX send, etc.

About the Scene Memory function
What is scene memory?
Scene memory is a function which stores the on/off
status of the mono/stereo input channels and of MIX
buses 1–12, 13/14, 15/16 and ST A as one of 128
“scenes.” A scene that has been stored can be recalled
instantly at a touch of a switch.
It is also possible to select scenes remotely from an
external device connected to the M3000’s MIDI IN, or
conversely to transmit a scene recall operation from
the MIDI OUT connector as a MIDI program change
message.
With the factory settings, the M3000’s scene memories are set as follows. However, the scenes of memory
numbers 1–128 can be rewritten as desired.

About the modes of the Scene
Memory function
The Scene Memory function has the following three
modes.
●Normal mode
In this mode you can recall and store scenes normally.
When the M3000 is in Normal mode, the CHECK
switch and UTILITY switch indicators of the scene
memory section will be dark.
●Check mode
In this mode you can confirm the settings of a scene
before you actually recall it, or edit the on/off settings
of each input channel or mix bus before storing a
scene. When the M3000 is in Check mode, the indicator of the CHECK switch in the scene memory section
will light.

About the Scene Memory function
Operations in normal mode
Storing a scene (normal mode)
1. Make sure that the M3000 is in normal mode,
and use the ON/EDIT switches of the mono/stereo input channels, the mix section and the STEREO A section to make the desired on/off
settings.
Note: In normal mode, operation of all ON/EDIT
switches will affect the signal which is actually output. If you are conducting a rehearsal or actual performance and wish to make on/off settings without
affecting the signals that are being output, use
Check mode.
2. Use the scene memory section ▲/▼ switches or
the 0–9/ENTER buttons of the scene memory
section to make the MEMORY display indicate
the memory number (1–128) into which you wish
to store the scene. (Memory numbers 129/130
are read-only, and cannot be selected.)
The selected memory number will blink in the MEMORY display. Scenes which are stored in memory
numbers 1–8 can be selected at one touch using the
DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches. If you need onetouch access to a scene memory, it is convenient to
store it in one of these memory numbers.
Note: When you perform the Store operation, the
contents that were previously in that memory number will be erased, and cannot be recovered. Be
aware of this as you select of a store destination.
3. Press the STORE switch.
The MEMORY display will blink “
,” indicating
that the M3000 is ready to store the scene.
4. To execute the Store operation, press the
STORE switch once again.
If you decide not to store, you can cancel the operation by pressing any switch other than STORE.
Note: If memory protect is on, the MEMORY display will indicate “
,” and it will not be possible
to execute the Store operation. Disable memory
protect, and execute the Store operation once again.
(For details on disabling memory protect, refer to
page 34.)
Note: STEREO B OUT is not affected by scene
memories.
32
Recalling a scene (normal mode)
1. Use the scene memory section ▲/▼ switches or
the 0–9/ENTER buttons of the scene memory
section to make the MEMORY display indicate
the memory number (1–130) that you wish to
recall.
The selected memory number will blink. Read-only
memory numbers 129/130 can be selected only by the
0–9/ENTER buttons.
2. Press the RECALL switch.
The selected scene memory will be recalled.
Note: If no data has been stored in the selected
scene, the MEMORY display will indicate “
,”
and the scene will not be recalled.
3. To instantly recall a memory number 1–8, press
the desired DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switch.
With the factory settings, the scenes of memory numbers 1–8 can be recalled directly by the DIRECT
RECALL 1–8 switches. (This is referred to as “direct
recall.”) In this case, it is not necessary to press the
RECALL switch, and the scene will change instantly.
If you press the ▲/▼ switches following a direct recall
operation, the scene memory number which had been
selected before you pressed the DIRECT RECALL 1–8
switch will blink in the display. This allows you to
quickly return to the previous scene number even if
you used direct recall while selecting consecutive
scene memories.
Note: The DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches can also
be used as mute group switches to add/defeat mute
groups. For details refer to page 36.
About the Scene Memory function
Operations in check mode
In check mode you can verify the settings of a scene
before recalling it, or edit the on/off status of the ON/
EDIT keys without affecting the internal audio signals. To move from normal mode to check mode,
press the CHECK switch in the scene memory section.
Verifying a scene before you recall
(Check mode)
1. If the M3000 is in normal mode, press the scene
memory section CHECK switch.
The CHECK switch LED will light, and the M3000
will enter check mode.
2. Use the scene memory section ▲/▼ switches or
the 0–9/ENTER buttons to make the MEMORY
display indicate the scene number that you wish
to check. (If you use the 0–9 buttons to change
the number, your selection will not be finalized
until you press the ENTER button.)
The CHECK indicators of the input channels, mix
section, and STEREO A section will indicate the on
(lit)/off (dark) status of that scene. This allows you to
verify the settings of each channel before actually
recalling that scene.
3. To recall the selected scene, press the RECALL
switch.
The scene will be recalled, and you will simultaneously exit check mode and return to normal mode.
(In this case, the operation of step 4 is not necessary.)
4. To exit check mode without changing the scene,
press the CHECK switch once again.
The M3000 will return to normal mode, and the
CHECK indicator will go dark.
Note: Check mode cannot be used together with
the DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches. When the
M3000 is in check mode, pressing a DIRECT
RECALL 1–8 switch will cause the corresponding
scene to be recalled immediately, and the M3000
will forcibly return to normal mode.
Storing after editing a scene (Check
mode)
In check mode, you can edit the on/off state of the
ON/EDIT switches without affecting the actual on/off
settings. This is convenient when you wish to store a
scene for later use while maintaining the current on/
off settings.
1. When the M3000 is in normal mode, press the
scene memory section CHECK switch.
The CHECK switch LED will light, and the M3000
will enter check mode.
2. Use the ▲/▼ switches of the scene memory section to make the MEMORY display indicate the
scene number for the desired storing destination.
The CHECK indicators of the input channels, mix
section, and STEREO A section will be lit or dark to
indicate the on/off status of that scene.
3. Use the CHECK indicator ON/EDIT switches of
the input channels, mix sections, and STEREO A
section to edit the on/off state.
In check mode, the ON/EDIT switches will edit the
on/off state of the scene, but will not affect the actual
on/off state. If even one point of the on/off state of the
scene is modified, a decimal point will light in the
lower right of the MEMORY display.
4. To store the edited on/off settings in the scene,
press the STORE switch twice.
In check mode, the STORE switch functions in the
same way as in normal mode. You can cancel the Store
operation by pressing a different switch before pressing the STORE switch the second time.
5. To exit check mode, press the CHECK switch
once again. Alternatively, you can recall the
scene that you stored.
The M3000 will return to normal mode, and the
CHECK indicator will go dark.

About the Scene Memory function
Operations in utility mode
In utility mode you can modify various settings
related to scene memory operations. Operations such
as Bulk Out and Bulk Dump Request are also performed in this mode.
Basic operation in utility mode
1. When the M3000 is in normal mode, press and
immediately release the scene memory section
UTILITY switch.
The UTILITY switch indicator will light, and the
M3000 will enter utility mode. At this time, the MEMORY display will alternately show the currently
selected utility item and the current parameter value.
Note: If you continue holding the UTILITY switch
for approximately one second or longer, you will
exit utility mode and return to normal mode.
2. Press the UTILITY switch repeatedly until the
desired item appears in the MEMORY display.
For the available items, refer to the section “Utility
items” below.
3. Use the scene memory section ▲/▼ switches to
modify the setting of the currently selected item.
For the available values of each item, refer to the section “Utility items” below.
• If you select Bulk Out or Bulk Dump Request parameters, or if you select the Memory Initialize parameter,
the function will be executed when you press the
STORE switch.
4. To exit utility mode, press and hold the UTILITY
switch for one second or longer.
The M3000 will return to normal mode. If the display
shows “ ” (bulk request), you can also return to
normal mode by pressing the UTILITY switch once
again.
Utility items
Utility mode includes the following items and parameter settings.
Utility item
Parameter values
(battery check)........... *.* (*.* is voltage value)
This indicates the voltage of the internal battery. If the
voltage drops to 2.5V or less, the indicator will show
“ ” and the voltage alternately. If an abnormal voltage occurs, the indicator will show “ ” and “ ”
alternately. If either of these displays appears, immediately contact your dealer or a Yamaha service center to
have the battery replaced.
(memory protect) ............................... on/oFF
This is a memory protect function to prevent important data from being overwritten. When this is turned
on, it will not be possible to modify or save scene data.
Also, even if a bulk dump is received from an external
MIDI device, the contents of memory will not be
rewritten.
(recall operation) .............................. dir/GrP
This changes the operation of the DIRECT RECALL
1–8 switches. When this is set to “
,” the DIRECT
RECALL 1–8 switches will function as direct recall
switches which directly recall memory numbers 1–8.
When this is set to “
,” the DIRECT RECALL 1–8
switches will function as mute group switches to add/
defeat mute groups 1–8. (For details on mute groups,
refer to page 36.)
(memory initialize) ....................... ALL/1–128
This erases all scene memories (ALL) or an individual
scene memory (1–128). After selecting “
” or “ ”
,” press the STORE switch to erase the speci~“
fied scene memory(s). Be aware that once a scene
memory is erased, it cannot be recovered.
(MIDI channel) ...................................... 1–16
This specifies the MIDI channel on which MIDI messages will be transmitted and received via the MIDI
IN/OUT connectors.
(program change transmission/reception)
........................................................ oFF/on/LoC
This specifies whether or not program changes will be
transmitted and received via the MIDI IN/OUT connectors. If this is set to “
,” program changes will
not be transmitted or received. If this is set to “ ,”
program changes 0–127 received from an external
device will select scenes 1–128 that were saved in the
M3000’s scene memory. (However if the oP parameter
is set to “
,” incoming program changes 0–7 will be
ignored.) Also, when a scene for which data has been
saved is recalled by an operation on the M3000, the cor-
34
About the Scene Memory function
responding program change message will be transmitted. If this is set to “
” (local), the corresponding
program change will be transmitted even when you
select a scene for which data has not been saved, thus
allowing you to select programs on an external device.
(control change transmission/reception)
....................................................... oFF/GrP/on
This specifies whether or not control change messages
will be transmitted and received via MIDI IN/OUT. If
this is set to “
,” control change messages will not
be transmitted or received. If this is set to “ ,” control changes 1–104 received from an external device
will switch the corresponding channel on/off. (If mute
groups can be used, control changes 105–112 can also
be used to switch mute groups 1–8 on/off.) Also,
when the ON/EDIT switches of the M3000 are operated, the corresponding control change will be transmitted. If this is set to “
,” only control change
numbers (105–112) which correspond to mute groups
will be transmitted.
(program change reception omni on/off)
...............................................................on/oFF
This specifies whether or not the MIDI channel specified by the CH (MIDI channel) parameter will be
valid. When this setting is “ ,” program changes will
be received on all MIDI channels. When this setting is
“
,” program changes will be received only on the
MIDI channel specified by the CH (MIDI channel)
parameter.
(echo back) ........................................on/oFF
When this parameter is “ ,” messages received at the
MIDI IN connector will be retransmitted from the
MIDI OUT connector.
However if a bulk dump request is received, bulk
dump data will be output, and the bulk dump request
message itself will not be retransmitted (echoed).
(bulk out) ..................................... ALL/1–128
This operation transmits all scene memories (ALL) or
a specified scene memory (1–128) as MIDI bulk
dump data from the MIDI OUT connector. Select
“
” or “ ” ~ “
” and then press the STORE
switch to begin transmission. During transmission,
the display will indicate “
.”
(bulk dump request) ..................... ALL/1–128
This operation transmits a request for a bulk dump
from the MIDI OUT connector. If the respective
MIDI IN/OUT connectors of two M3000 units are
connected, such a request will cause all scene memories (ALL) or the specified scene memory (1–128) of
the other M3000 to overwrite the scene memory (or
memories) of this M3000. After selecting “
” or
,” press the STORE switch to transmit the
“ ”~“
bulk dump request MIDI message.
Control change table
The following table shows the M3000 channel/bus to
which each control number is assigned. If the CC
(control change) item is turned ON in utility mode, a
control change message with a value of 127 received
from an external device will turn on the corresponding channel/bus, and a control change message with a
value of 0 will turn it off. In the same way, operating
the ON/EDIT switches of the M3000 will transmit the
corresponding control change message from the
MIDI OUT connector.
Also, if mute groups can be used (refer to page 36),
control change numbers 105–112 can be used to
switch mute groups 1–8 on/off.

• If the CC (control change) parameter of utility
mode is set to “
” (mute group), only control
change numbers (105–112) which correspond to
mute groups will be transmitted or received.
Using mute groups
When the utility mode oP (recall operation) parameter is set to “
” (refer to page 34), the DIRECT
RECALL 1–8 switches will function as “mute group”
switches, and the scenes of memory numbers 1–8 can
be used as mute groups. If two or more DIRECT
RECALL switches are turned on, channels or buses
which are off (muted) in the corresponding scenes
will be turned off (while the ON status stored in these
scenes is ignored).
The following diagram shows the difference in operation between when the oP parameter is set to “
”
(direct recall) and “
” (Mute group). If the oP
parameter is set to “
,” recalling a new scene will
cause the channels or buses to be switched on/off
according to the settings saved in that scene. In contrast if this parameter is set to “
,” two or more
DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches can be turned on, and
all channels or buses which are muted (off) in any of
the mute groups will be muted.

memory numbers 9–128. However in this case,
the currently-muted channels or buses will not
change until you defeat the applicable mute
groups.
• If you use the 0–9/ENTER buttons to recall
memory number 129 (all on) or 130 (all off),
the mute group settings of the DIRECT
RECALL 1–8 switches will be defeated.

Adding/defeating mute groups
1. Store the channel or bus mute settings that you
wish to use as a mute group in a memory number 1–8.
If an error occurs in the system of the M3000, the on/
off control of each input channel and bus will automatically switch from the scene memory circuit to the
local control circuit, allowing you to operate the
M3000 like a conventional analog mixer. In this case,
the ON/EDIT switch of each input channel or mix
channel will function like a conventional ON/OFF
(mute) switch. However, the MEMORY display will
go dark, and the switches for the Scene Memory functionality cannot be operated.
Note: If the cause of the system error lies in the
power supply, it may not be possible to use the local
control circuit either.
2. In utility mode, select the oP (recall operation)
item, and switch the display to “
.” (For
details refer to page 34.)
3. Either press and hold the UTILITY switch for one
second or more, or press the UTILITY switch
repeatedly to return to normal mode.
Even if the Utility mode item oP is set to “
,” you
can edit scenes 1–8 either by using the 0–9/ENTER
buttons to specify the scene number or by entering
check mode.
4. Press a DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switch.
The corresponding mute group will become active,
and the channels or buses which are turned off
(muted) in that scene will be muted.
5. As desired, press other DIRECT RECALL 1–8
switches.
Mute groups will be added, and channels or buses
which are turned off (muted) on those scenes will be
muted.

About the VCA functionality
The VCA master section of the M3000 contains eight
VCA master faders. These VCA master faders 1–8 can
be used to control the overall input level of input
channels assigned to the corresponding VCA groups
1–8.

If two or more channels are assigned to the same VCA
group, you can use a single VCA master fader to control them. The following diagram shows an example
of the signal flow when VCA GROUP select switch 1 is
turned on for input channels 1, 5, and 16.

Control signals
If you wish to use the VCA functionality, set the rear
panel VCA MASTER/SLAVE switch to the MASTER
position.
Basic function of the VCA master faders
The VCA master faders control the gain of the prefader signal of input channels which are assigned to
the corresponding VCA group. The following diagram
shows the flow of audio signals and control signals
(CV) when input channel 1 is assigned to VCA group
1.

• The gain of an input channel which is assigned to a
VCA group can be controlled both by the channel
fader and by the VCA master fader. For example if the
channel fader is set to 0 dB and the VCA master fader
is set to –10 dB, the gain will be 0 dB + (–10 dB) = –10
dB.
• When you operate a VCA master fader, it will affect all
MIX buses (except for MIX buses set to pre-fader),
matrix, and STEREO bus to which a signal is being
sent from the corresponding channel.
• When a VCA master fader is in the 0 dB position (the
NOMINAL indicator of that fader will be lit) it is in
unity gain, and that VCA will produce no boost or cut.

the post-fader signal of all input channels assigned to
that VCA group will be muted.
About the VCA functionality
Using two or more VCA master faders
to control a single channel
As the opposite of the example on the previous page,
it is also possible to assign a channel to two or more
VCA groups. The following diagram shows an example of signal flow when channel 1 is assigned to VCA
groups 1, 5, and 8.

Using multiple VCA master faders to
control multiple channels (overlapping
VCA)
In sound reinforcement mixing it is often necessary to
mix the same inputs at different levels as the on-stage
performance progresses. In such situations, you can
assign multiple input channels to multiple VCA
groups (this is referred to as “overlapping VCA”), and
control most levels using only the eight VCA master
faders.
The following diagram is an example of multiple
input channels being controlled by multiple VCA
master faders; VCA master fader 1 controls the drums
and bass of inputs 1–3, VCA master fader 2 controls
the piano and synth of inputs 4–7, and so on.

• If an input channel is assigned to two or more VCA
groups, the gain of that channel can be controlled
both by the channel fader and by the corresponding
VCA master faders. For example if the channel fader is
set to 0 dB and VCA master faders 1, 5, and 8 are
respectively set to -10 dB, the gain will be 0 dB + (–10
dB) + (–10 dB) + (–10 dB) = –30 dB. However the
control signal from the VCA is limited so that the gain
will not exceed +20 dB at maximum.
• Operating any of the VCA master faders to which the
input channel is assigned will affect the MIX buses
(except for MIX buses set to pre-fader), matrix, and
STEREO buses to which the signal of that channel is
being sent.
• If the VCA MUTE switch of the VCA master fader is
turned on (the indicator beside the switch will be lit),
the post-fader signal of all input channels assigned to
that VCA group will be muted. This is convenient
when you wish to mute/un-mute multiple channels
without operating the fader.
• The VCA of the input channel is supplied with a signal
which sums the control signals from all corresponding
VCA master faders. If a VCA master fader is in the 0
dB position (the NOMINAL indicator of that fader
will be lit), the gain will be unity, and that VCA will
produce no boost or cut.

Even in this case, you will use the mix section or
matrix section to specify the output mix and the output destination speakers, but you can perform most of
the actual level changes using only the VCA master
faders; for example when you wish to raise or lower
only the vocals you can use VCA master fader 5, and
when you wish to control both vocals and chorus you
can use VCA master fader 6.
• The gain of each channel can be controlled both by
the channel fader and by the corresponding VCA master faders. For example in the above example if you set
the channel faders for vocal 1/2 (inputs 10/11) to 0
dB, and set VCA master faders 5 and 6 to –5 dB
respectively, the gain would be 0 dB + (–5 dB) + (–5
dB) = –10 dB.
• The faders of VCA groups which do not need to be
adjusted must be set to unity gain (the 0 dB position).
(The NOMINAL indicator of these faders will light.)

About the VCA functionality
• If the VCA MUTE switch of a VCA master fader is
turned on (the indicator beside the switch will light),
the post-fader signal of all input channels assigned to
that VCA group will be muted. This is convenient
when you wish to simultaneously mute or un-mute
multiple channels without operating the faders.
• By using this in conjunction with the Scene Memory
function, you can also mute only specific inputs
within a VCA group. In the above example, if you
recall a scene in which chorus 1–3 (inputs 12–14) are
turned off, chorus 1–3 will be muted from VCA
groups 4, 6, and 8.

MIDI data format
1. MIDI Channel
The same channel is used for transmission and reception. Select from channel numbers 1–16.
2. MIDI Program Change
Program change numbers 0–127 correspond to Scene
Memory numbers 1–128. This correspondence cannot be changed. However when Mute Group is
selected, program change numbers 0–7 cannot be
transmitted or received. (Since memory numbers 1–8
will not correspond to program change numbers 0–
7.)
In the case of OMNI [on], program changes of all
MIDI channels are received.
Transmission/reception can be switched [LoC/on/
oFF]. When [LoC] is selected, program changes will
be transmitted to control an external MIDI device
even when a scene memory with no data is recalled.
3. MIDI Control Change
Control change messages correspond to the various
ON/EDIT switches and to the DIRECT RECALL
switches. This correspondence cannot be changed.
However, control change numbers 105–112 correspond to the DIRECT RECALL 1–8 switches only
when MUTE GROUP is selected.
Transmission/reception can be switched [on/GrP/
oFF]. When [GrP] is selected, only control change
messages corresponding to mute groups will be transmitted or received.

4. MIDI Echo Back
The Echo Back function can be switched [on/oFF].
However if the internal transmission buffer overflows
because a long exclusive message is being echoed back
etc., echo back will be halted, and internal data will be
transmitted. Bulk Dump Request messages will not be
echoed back – bulk data will be transmitted instead.
