Introduction 1
Introduction
Welcome
Thank you for purchasing and welcome to—the Yamaha QS1-WD Digital Equalizer software. QS1
is a member of the Yamaha Sound System Control Software Series. It allows you to control both
large and small size sound systems easily. Before installing or using QS1, please read through this
User Guide.
WhatisQS1?
QS1-WD Digital Equalizer software is a Windows application that allows you to control Yamaha
digital equalizers from desktop and laptop computers. The following Yamaha digital equalizers can
be used with QS1: DEQS, DEQSE, YDG2030, and YDP2006.
QS1 offers parameter control for up to 31 digital equalizers. The computer used to run QS1 can be
situated at an ideal listening position. The sound engineer can then make adjustments while
monitoring the results. QS1 Projects make it easy to manage equalizer data. Project data can be saved
to disk and recalled for future use. Data from one device, or all devices can be saved and loaded.
A Project may contain up to 100 Scenes. A Scene allows you to recall Scene memories on all active
equalizers simultaneously. Each Scene can be assigned a suitable icon, and the Scene change can be
executed by double-clicking the icon.
QS1’s GUI (Graphical User Interface) allows you to make adjustments just like you would using real
equalizer controls. For example, sliders can be moved using the mouse, and buttons appear to depress
when clicked. Commands can be accessed through familiar pull-down menus.
Graphic equalizer, parametric equalizer, and filter windows corresponding to a number of equalizers
can be open simultaneously, allowing you to set up multiple equalizers with ease. The Curve window
displays the resultant frequency response of the selected equalizer, providing visual feedback for
your EQ adjustments.
Features
Offstage remote-computer control of Yamaha digital equalizers
Compatible with Yamaha DEQS, DEQSE, YDG2030, and YDP2006 digital equalizers
On-screen parameter control for up to 31 equalizers
Equalizer data can be saved to disk and recalled for future use

4 Chapter 1 — Getting Started
Device Settings
DEQS, DEQSE, YDG2030, YDP2006: In the Utility RS485 NETWORK menu, set the baud rate
(see “Config” on page 11). The local address number can be set in the same menu. In the RS485
COMM.I/O menu, set the VO Comm to ALL.
DEQ5, YDG2030, YDP2006: Set the Remote Address to an unused address. For example, 7.31. Do
not set it to * (asterisk).
DEQS5: Set the rear panel MEMORY PROTECT switch to OFF.
DEQSE: first set up the DEQS or QS1, then set the Remote Address in the Utility window.
Assign local address numbers exclusively to all devices (see “What is an Address?” on page 6)
Installing QS1
No oo Rob =
See “Backing Up the Program Disk” on page 2 before proceeding.
Use the backup copy for installation.
Power on your computer.
Start Windows (type win at the MS-DOS prompt).
Insert the backup copy of the QS1 Program Disk into the disk drive.
In the Program Manager window, choose Run from the File menu.
Type A:\setup in the dialog box.
Press Enter.
Follow the instructions that appear on the screen.
The QS1 Setup program creates a group window called Yamaha. An icon for QS1 appears in this
window.
Starting QS1
Before starting QS1, power on all equalizers, your computer, then the IFU485.
To start QS1:
Start Windows (type win at the MS-DOS prompt).
Choose Yamaha QS1-WD from the Program Manager Window menu.
Double-click the QS1-WD icon.
Yamaha QS1-WD
Dummy Device 5
When QS1 starts up, it checks to see what devices are connected. An icon for each active device is
displayed in the Device window. Inactive devices appear with gray icons. The Device window below
shows an active DEQS.
= PCI
Dummy Device
If no active devices are found, QS1 gives you the option to add a Dummy device. You cannot control
a Dummy device, but 1t does allow you to complete QS1 start up, view the various equalizer
windows, and check Scene data stored in existing Projects. Dummy devices can be created at
anytime, and are useful when, for example, you want to check Project data on your home computer
before the next day's big event.
Whatto Do When Devices Are Not Recognized
If QS1 does not detect connected devices:
* Make sure that all devices are powered on
e Check the connecting cables
e Check the IFU485 settings
* Check the equalizers’ settings
* Restart QS1.
Note: Do not power off the IFU485 or devices while QS1 is running. Doing so may cause QS1 to crash.
In cases where QS1 works incorrectly due to a cable disconnection or equipment power off, turn your
amplifier’s volume down to minimum, then power on your equipment in the following order:
* Devices (digital equalizers)
* Computer
* [FU485
* Power amplifier
Finally, restart QS1 and set it up ready for use.
Quitting QS1
There are four ways to quit QS1:
* Choose Quit from the File menu.
* Double-click the Control-menu box.
* Click-open the Control-menu box and choose Close.
* Press Alt+F4

6 Chapter 2 — EQ Devices
Chapter 2-EQ Devices
In this chapter we explain about devices and the Option menu commands.
Whatis aDevice?
A device is a QS1 compatible digital equalizer. QS1 is compatible with the following Yamaha digital
equalizers: DEQS, DEQSE, YDG2030, and YDP2006.
Device data is stored in Device files. If you have only one or two devices, Device files can be used
to store data. However, in a large system with many devices, it is better to handle data as a Project.
In a Project ali device data is stored in one Project file.
Whatis an Address?
Each device on the network must be assigned an exclusive address number. An address consists of
two parts: Group ID and Device ID. For example, G=1, D=5 indicates device 5 of group 1.
Note: Make sure that addresses are assigned exclusively. OS1 does not detect shared addresses. If two or
more devices share the same address, operation will be unpredictable. The devices” Remote Addresses
should be assigned unused addresses. Broadcast addresses may occasionally cause malfunction.
Adding aDevice
The New Device command allows you to add new devices to the Device window. Normally, active
devices are automatically added during QS1 start up. This command allows you to add Dummy
devices for experimentation, or to set up a device or Project off site.
1. Choose New Device from the Edit menu.
The following dialog box appears.

Master Select: this parameter is used to select the control master: Device or Host computer.
Normally, the host computer is used as the master controller, since that's what QS1 is all about.
However, this parameter can be used when QS1 is introduced into an existing equalizer system, and
Scene data, etc., already exists in each equalizer. When the master is changed from Device to Host,
QS1 requests and receives the data from all equalizers. The data in QS1 then matches that of the
equalizers, and subsequent control can be performed from QS1.
When Master Select is Device: (initial setting) the device data is the main data. The Parameter
Change On/Off buttons on the Load Project window determine whether the device data is changed
when Project data is loaded. EQ adjustments made on the host will affect the device. When a
Program recall is initiated on the host, the host requests the corresponding Program data from the
device. EQ adjustments and Program recalls initiated on the device are not echoed to the host.
When Master Select is Host: the host data is the main data. Loading Project data will affect the host
data and the device data. Initiating a Program recall on the host sends only a Program Change
message to the device. See also “Master Select” on page 29.
Protect: this parameter allows you to protect your EQ data. When set to Off, operation is as normal.
When set to On, EQ adjustments cannot be made, you can only transmit scene changes, and the
following menu commands are inactive:
Load Device, Save Device, Bulk In, Bulk Out, Device Edit, Delete Device, New Device, Delete
Scene, New Scene, Load project, Save Project, Eq.Com, Filter, Curve, Utility, Time Code, Graphic
Equalizer, Parametric Equalizer, Parameter Linking, and Bypass.
Note: When you change one of the following parameters, you must restart QS1 to activate it.
Port Select: this parameter is used to select the serial port.
Auto Polling: this parameter is used to turn Auto Polling on and off. When Auto Polling is on, QS1
regularly checks the status of each device.
Confirm: this parameter determines if and when alert boxes appear. When set to On, alert boxes
appear as normal. When set to Off, alert boxes appear only when fatal errors occur.
Baud Rate: this parameter is used to select the baud rate. For serial connections, 9600 is the more
common baud rate. Whether you can use 38400 depends on your computer.
