Congratulations on your acquisition of a Yamaha DMP11 Digital
Mixing Processor!
The Yamaha DMPI11 carries on in the tradition of the superlative
Yamaha DMP7 Digital Audio Mixing Processor, providing extraordinary
"music processing’ capability. It effectively integrates an 8 x 2 digital
line-level mixer with top-quality Yamaha digital effects. Each and every
parameter — from fader positions to effects and EQ settings — is fully
programmable. Up to 96 complete system configurations can be stored in
internal memory and recalled at the touch of a button for instant
"scene" changes. What's more, the DMPII is MIDI compatible. MIDI
program change commands from external equipment can be used to
automatically switch scenes, or a MIDI sequence recorder can be used to
store mixdown and effects change operations in real time. If 8 inputs
aren't enough for your requirements, the DMP11 permits digital cascad-
ing of 2 or more units. The DMPI1 is both a revolutionary production
tool and "musical instrument" in its own right.
In order to take full advantage of the tremendous potential offered by the
DMPII, we urge you to read this operation manual thoroughly, and
keep the "OPERATIONS SUMMARY" handy while you are familiariz-
ing yourself with the DMP11.
—— DMP11 Features ——
® All-digital Signal Processing
Analog signals are A/D-converted on entry into the
console, and are handled and processed in digital
form right up to the D/A stage at the stereo outputs.
In addition to providing extraordinary signal process-
ing versatility, this ensures that maximum signal
quality is maintained from input to output.
e 2 Digital Effects Systems
Each DMP11 channel features 2 effect loops that
feed a high- performance internal digital multi-effect
processor. EFFECTS 1 provides access to 20 differ-
ent effects including reverb, gate reverb, delay,
echo, flange, phasing, tremolo, symphonic, pitch
change, etc. Individual parameters controlling each
effect may also be programmed. EFFECT 2 feeds a
5-effect internal system. In addition, EFFECT 1 or
EFFECT 2 can be assigned to a rear-panel EFFECT
SEND jack for external signal processing.
e Reliable Multi-function Faders
Like all other DMP11 parameters, fader settings can
be memorized and recalled as needed. A single set
of faders functions for channel level control and
effect send level contro! to both of the DMP11's
effect systems. Memorized fader settings can be
graphically displayed on the LCD display panel.
e Versatile Digital EQ
Each DMP11 channel offers a versatile 2-band digital
equalizer. Each band permits frequency control, plus
or minus 15 dB gain control, Q adjustment over a
broad 0.1 — 5.0 range, and peaking, shelving or
dynamic mode selection.
e Memory
The DMP11 features 96 internal memories which can
store all console parameters. You can program and
store 96 completely different configurations or
"scenes," and recall them instantly whenever neces-
sary.
e MIDI Control Capability
Different memories (scenes) can be selected simply
by sending the appropriate MIDI program change
number to the DMP11 over a standard MIDI cable. It
can even be connected directly to a MIDI sequence
recorder for real-time storage of mixing and effect
operations. For really complicated operations involv-
ing many simultaneous fades, EQ changes, etc.,
each operation can be individually overdubbed on
the sequence recorder. Then you simply play back
the sequence as you would with any other MIDI com-
patible musical instrument, and the entire mixing/sig-
nal processing process is recreated in fine detail.

© Input Jacks & Trim Controls
These are standard monaural 1/4" phone jacks which
accept line-level input to the DMP11's eight input chan-
nels. Each INPUT jack has an input level trimmer contro!
which adjusts the nominal input level between approxi-
mately -20 dB and +4 dB. The center detent position of
the input level trimmers provides a nominal input level of -
10 dB. Input impedance is 10 k-ohms.
* Microphone input is also possible using the optional
Yamaha MLA7 8-channel microphone amplifier.
@ Externai Effects Send Jack
Delivers a D/A-converted analog signal from the effect
SEND 1 or SEND 2 system for external signal process-
ing. Assigning SEND 1 or SEND 2 to the EFFECT SEND
jack is described in "CASCADE MODE CONTROL" on
page 29. Nominal output level is +4 dB, and optimum
load impedance is 10 k-ohms or greater.
@ Unbalanced Stereo Output Jacks
Main stereo program outputs from the DMP11. These
outputs are unbalanced 1/4" phone jacks, delivering the
output signal at a nominal +4 dB. Optimum load
impedance is 10 k-ohms or greater.
O Balanced Stereo Output Jacks
Main stereo program outputs from the DMP11. These
U.S. & Canadian models
outputs are balanced XLR type connectors, delivering the
output signal at a nominal +4 dB. Optimum load
impedance is 600 ohms or greater.
© MIDI IN, OUT & THRU Terminals
The MIDI IN terminal receives MIDI control data from
external MIDI equipment, and the MIDI OUT terminal
transmits MID! data from the DMP11 which is to be stored
in or otherwise used by external MIDI equipment. The
MIDI THRU terminal re-transmits any data received at the
MIDI IN terminal, allowing "daisy-chaining” to other MIDI
equipment.
© Digital Cascade IN and OUT Terminals
These 8-pin DIN connectors are used to cascade 2 or
more DMP11 units to increase the available number of
inputs.
[Detailed instructions on page 28]
@ Foot Volume Control Jack
This 1/4" monaural phone jack accepts an external foot
controller such as the Yamaha FC9, permitting foot con-
trol of the signal level delivered from the DMP11's master
stereo buss. A utility function allows the operation of the
foot controller to be exchanged with that of the DATA
ENTRY control so that the foot controller can be used for
real-time control of virtually any of the DMP11's parame-
ters (EQ, effects, etc.).
[Detailed instructions on page 25]
SIGNAL FLOW & FUNCTIONAL CONFIGURATION
Although the DMP11 is a "digital mixer” which deals entirely
with A/D-converted digital signals, its basic signal flow and
functional layout should be quite familiar to anyone who has
worked with even simple audio mixing equipment before.
One aspect of the DMP11 which may be surprising, however,
is its apparent lack of external control hardware (EQ controls,
separate effect send controls, etc.) in relation to the number
of functions it provides.

PRE-
EMPHASIS

GAIN ON/OFF
(+4^-20) OSCILLATOR
(UTILITY)
Referring to the single-channel block diagram above, input
applied to one of the rear-panel INPUT jacks is first routed
through an analog buffer/variable-gain amp which buffers and
ermits level matching with the source signal. The gain trim-
Bors for each channel are located directly above the corre-
sponding input jacks on the rear panel. The input buffer is fol-
lowed by a pre-emphasis circuit and a 16-bit linear A/D con-
verter, sampling at 44.1 kHz. The first digital processing
stage following A/D conversion is EQ. This is followed by
phase inversion, the main channel fader, and stereo pan sys-
tem which feeds the master stereo program buss. Pre- and
post-fader taps immediately before and after the channel
fader feed the DMP11's two effect systems. Here it is impor-
tant to note that the two effect send level control circuits are
all controlled by what is normally the channel fader. The user
selects one of the two effect sends, and the channel faders
then function as the effect send level controls for the respec-
tive channels. Each effect send level control feeds a sophisti-
cated digital signal processor: the processor in effect send 1
offers a selection of 20 different effects including reverbera-
tion, delay, phasing, flanging, chorus, gate reverb, pitch
change and others.
This is because digital operation allows significant functional
streamlining of the system, assigning a number of related
jobs to a single control or group of controls. Once you're
familiar with the system, you'll find that it actually saves time
and makes operation easier, allowing you to concentrate
more fully on the results to be achieved rather than operating
the equipment involved.

verter permitting use of external effect and signal processing
units. A single return level fader controls return from both
effect systems — its operation depends on the selected effect
system. The master stereo program buss feeds a variable-
gain stage which can be controlled externally by a foot pedal
and the main stereo master fader. This is immediately fol-
lowed by stereo D/A converters and de-emphasis circuits
which feed the DMP11's main stereo outputs.

SECTION 1: GENERAL OPERATION
| FADER OPERATION -
In terms of external appearance and operation, the DMP11
faders are exactly the same as those on any other mixer.
There is, however, one significant difference: they have more
than one function. You'll notice that despite the fact that the
DMP11 has two effect systems, and two effect sends for
each channel, corresponding level controls are not provided
on the panel. in the DMP11, the jobs of controlling channel
level and the two effect send levels have been assigned to a
single fader for each channel. The FADER FLIP, SEND 1
and SEND 2 button LEDs tell you which function the channel
faders are currently performing: SEND 1, SEND 2, CHAN-
NEL.
FADER FLIP LED OFF: Channel level.
FADER FLIP LED ON & SEND 1 LED ON: Send 1 level.
FADER FLIP LED ON & SEND 2 LED ON: Send 2 level.
The effect RETURN fader individually controls return level for
each of the two effect systems. The STEREO master fader
does not have any secondary functions. |
FADER STATUS DISPLAY
When you switch to a new memory location or from the chan-
nel level fader mode to an effect send mode, for example, the
physical fader positions will probably not match the memo-
rized fader data. Press the FADER STATUS button and the
memorized fader levels for the selected mode or memory
location will be shown graphically on the LCD display panel.
If you wish to accurately reposition the faders to match the
memorized data press the FADER STATUS button a second
time. A display similar to the following will appear:
12345678 RS
TITTTOL? JT
The numbers on the top row correspond to channel faders 1
through 8, and the characters "R" and "S" corresponding to
the RETURN and STEREO faders. A "o" below a number or
character indicates that the corresponding fader is in the
proper position. An up-arrow indicates that the fader must be
raised, and a down-arrow indicates that the fader must be
lowered. Move the faders with arrow markings in the indicat-
ed direction slowly until the arrow changes to a "o". This
matches the fader position to the memorized data.
Press the FADER STATUS button again to return to the
graphic fader position display.
/ CHANNEL ONBUTTONS _ /
The ON buttons located immediately above each fader sim-
ply turn the signal related to the corresponding fader ON or
OFF. These buttons are alternate-action types, alternating
between ON and OFF states each time the button is pressed.
The button is ON when the red LED built into it is lit. The
channel ON buttons function like channel ON/OFF or MUTE
switches on a conventional mixer. When OFF, the signal
from that channel is shut off and will not appear at the stereo
buss or any of the effect sends. The return channel ON but-
ton turns the return signal from any of the two effects sys-
tems on or off (depending on the selected send), and the
stereo channel ON button turns the DMP11's main stereo
outputs ON or OFF.
10
/ PAN /
The DMP11 permits panning the signal from each input chan-
nel across the stereo buss in 17 discrete steps. The PAN dis-
play on the DMP11's LCD shows two numbers: L=n and Ran,
where "n" is an integer between 0 and 16. À setting of L=8
R=8, for example, corresponding to center pan positioning.
With a setting of L=16 R=0 the signal would be panned full
left, and setting of L=12 R=4 would place the signal approxi-
mately three-quarters right.
‚ L=16/R=0, L=15/R=1, ...L=8/R=8, ...L=1/R=15, L=0/R=16

/ PHASE a _ /
Âs in a conventional mixer, the phase inversion function on
the DMP11 allows matching the phases of different sources
to prevent level and response irregularities. Although it is
generally not a problem with line sources, proper phase
matching can be critical with microphone sources (e.g. when
the DMP11 is used with the optional MLA7 8-channel micro-
phone amplifier).
SETTING PHASE
O Press PAN/HASE button twice (once if PAN mode is
already selected).
O Press SELECT button of channel for which PHASE is to
be adjusted.
© Use DATA ENTRY slider or PARAMETER +/- buttons to
select NORMAL or REVERSE phase.

The DMP11 offers a versatile 2-band EQ system on each
channel. The HI and LOW bands can be set to function in
either peaking, shelving or "dynamic” modes. In the peaking
mode, both bands permit Q adjustment over a wide 0.1 —5
range, permitting precise adjustment of a specific range of
frequencies. In the dynamic (DYNA) mode, the center fre-
quency sweeps automatically through the total 32Hz — 18
kHz EQ range.
SETTING EQ
O Press SELECT button on channel for which EQ is to be
adjusted.
W Press either the LOW EQ or HI EQ button to select the
desired EQ range:
LOW EQ : 32 Hz — 18 kHz
HI EQ : 32 Hz — 18 kHz
© If the "EQ OFF" display appears, press the same EQ
band selector a second time to turn that band ON. A band
which is ON can be turned OFF by pressing its selector a
second time.
@ Use the PARAMETER < / ) buttons to select the
parameter to be changed (block cursor flashes over first
character of parameter):
"Е" = Frequency (32 Hz — 18 kHz)
"С" = Gain (-15 dB — + 15 dB)
"Q = Quality Factor (0.1 — 5, only when "PEAK"
mode is selected)
"PEAK" =Peaking EQ
| "SHV" = Shelving EQ
"DYNA" = Dynamic EQ

* Be careful when switching the HI band from shelving to
peaking response. If a high-gain shelving response is
switched to peaking, particularly in the low frequency
range (32 Hz — 1 kHz), the resultant high-gain peak can
cause low-frequency noise.
