PM5D & DME64N CASCADE
Mode 1: Remote Control & Bi-directional Audio
This uses the CASCADE IN/OUT ports, but is not a Cascade function. (MIX buses are not merged: you use the PATCH function to choose the required audio connections.)
Advantages:
Use DME for inserting extra GEQs, PEQs...
Use DME for extra effects units (send & return).
Control many of the DME functions from PM5D.
Patch any PM5D output to DME (including insert send and direct out).
Monitor DME audio channels from PM5D CUE bus.
Get 32 I/O between PM5D and DME at 96 kHz. (The CASCADE IN/OUT ports can work in ‘DOUBLE SPEED’ mode.)
Disadvantages:
Up to 2 slots are lost (32 I/O).
32 I/O from MY-slots
(44.1/48 kHz)
64 I/O from MY-slots (44.1/48 kHz)
32 I/O between PM5D and DME64N (even at 96 kHz)

■ Cascade Setup
On MIXER SETUP screen (SYS/W.CLOCK function), select:
CASCADE IN PORT (1)
SLOT4
CASCADE OUT PORT (2)
(will only allow 16 channels from DME)
SLOT3/4
SLOT3/4
SLOT1-4 [CH1-8]
(this is not normally a practical option)
SLOT1-4 [CH1-8]
SLOT1-4 [CH9-16]
(useful if you only have MY8 or MY4 cards installed)
SLOT1-4 [CH9-16]

Whichever slots you choose here will be disabled from normal use.
So this connection method limits the amount of slot I/O you can practically use.
If the Cascade function is ENABLED, then the audio input to these slots will be merged with the PM5D
MIX buses (as specified on the CASCADE screen, in the SYS/W.CLOCK function).
On DME CONTROL screen (MIDI/REMOTE function), select:
INPUT PORT (3)
OUTPUT PORT (4)
CASCADE IN
CASCADE OUT

DME64N Properties, Cascade Setting:
Choose 0dB Head Margin when connecting with PM5D in this
way.
Check all the ports you wish to use with PM5D.

NOTE:
DME Designer can stay on-line during PM5D control, but control will be faster if
DME Designer is off-line.
PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 1: Remote Control & Bi-directional Audio
■ Patching
In the PATCH screens, instead of seeing the slots selected in Cascade Setup procedure, the 32 cascade
connections will be seen (yellow colour).
So any audio channel inside PM5D can be patched to any cascade channel for sending to and from
DME64N.
Patch the DME like an external GEQ, effect unit or speaker processor.
Cascade patch instead of SLOT 3/4
Remember to switch INSERT ON in the
INSERT POINT screen of PM5D if it is
intended to insert the GEQs from
DME64N.

PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 1: Remote Control & Bi-directional Audio
■ Control and Monitoring
In the DME CONTROL-SETUP screen, click ‘CONNECT’ and
select the type of component to be edited here.
Press to activate the DME monitor in the PM5D CUE bus.
In the Monitor Out box of DME Designer (in the Tools menu of
the main window), select a spare cascade port to use to link the
DME monitor to the PM5D CUE bus.
This indicator will appear.
Choose the name of the
component to be edited here.
For PM5D, in the DME CONTROL-SETUP screen, select the
same cascade port as the MONITOR PORT, so you can hear the
DME monitor in the PM5D CUE bus.
DME scenes can be recalled from here. And scenes can be
stored (but they can only be overwritten if they already exist:
new scenes cannot be created).
So one tip is to create several ‘spare’ scenes containing the
initial data, which can be overwritten if needed.
Click here to control the GEQ or MATRIX mixer with the DCA faders
(or press SHIFT+FADER MODE on PM5D).

PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 1: Remote Control & Bi-directional Audio
■ Scene Recall MIDI Link
The SCENE RECALL LINK switch in
the DME CONTROL-SETUP screen
will enable PM5D to send a MIDI
message through the cascade
connection to recall a scene in the
DME, following the Program Change
table assignments.
You need to switch on Program Change Rx. (It doesn’t matter
about the MIDI PORT selection, as it will use the CASCADE
IN/OUT ports automatically.)
You need to switch on PROGRAM
CHANGE Tx. (It doesn’t matter about
the MIDI PORT selection, as it will use
the CASCADE IN/OUT ports
automatically.)
PM5D has a default Program Change assignment of 1-to-1, but
DME’s Program Change table will need to be set up by the
user: assign any scene to any number. (Click ‘All Assign’ for a
convenient quick set-up.)

PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 2: Remote Control & One-way Audio: PM5D to DME64N
Mode 2: Remote Control & One-way Audio: PM5D to DME64N
This uses only the CASCADE OUT port of PM5D and the CASCADE IN port of DME64N, but is not a Cascade function. (MIX buses are not merged: you use the PATCH function
to choose the required audio connections.)
Advantages:
Use DME for extra output processing GEQs, crossovers, delays.
Control many of the DME functions from PM5D.
Patch any PM5D output to DME (including insert send and direct out).
Get 32 outputs from PM5D to DME even at 96 kHz (The CASCADE IN/OUT ports can work in ‘DOUBLE SPEED’ mode.)
Disadvantages:
Up to 2 slots are lost for outputs (all inputs can still be used).
Can only return audio from DME via slot inputs.
Cannot monitor DME audio on PM5D CUE bus.

PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 2: Remote Control & One-way Audio: PM5D to DME64N
■ Patching
In the OUTPUT PATCH screens, instead of seeing the slots selected in Cascade Setup procedure, the 32
cascade output connections will be seen (yellow colour).
So any output channel from PM5D can be patched to any cascade output for sending to DME64N.
■ Control and Monitoring
In this case, the DME monitor function cannot be heard on PM5D, though it can be controlled.
DME scenes can be recalled and stored (overwritten). See page 6 for details.

DME’s Program Change table will need to be set up by the
user: assign any scene to any number. (Click ‘All Assign’ for a
quick set-up.)
11/34
PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 3: One-way Audio Cascade: PM5D to DME64N
Mode 3: One-way Audio Cascade: PM5D to DME64N
This uses the Cascade function, from the CASCADE OUT port of PM5D to the CASCADE IN port of DME64N. (PM5D MIX buses are sent to the DME cascade buses.)
Advantages:
Use DME for larger matrix.
Use DME for extra output processing GEQs, crossovers, delays.
All slot I/O are available for other devices.
This cascade method still works at 96 kHz with no loss of channels (The CASCADE IN/OUT ports can work in ‘DOUBLE SPEED’ mode.)
Disadvantages:
There is no patch for choosing which PM5D channels send to the DME64N.
Cascade from PM5D is pre-processing, so PM5D’s output EQ/comp/delay are bypassed.
Can only return audio from DME via slot inputs.
Cannot control any DME functions from PM5D.
Cannot monitor DME audio on PM5D CUE bus.

DME64N Properties, Cascade Setting:
Choose -18dB Head Margin when connecting with PM5D in this
way.
Check all the ports you wish to use with PM5D.
Un-checked ports can be used to cascade audio between other
DME64N units.
PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 3: One-way Audio Cascade: PM5D to DME64N
■ Patching
In the OUTPUT PATCH screens, all 4 slots can be patched as normal.
■ Control and Monitoring
In this case, the DME monitor function cannot be heard on PM5D, and it cannot be controlled.
DME scenes cannot be recalled or stored from PM5D.
Some control can be achieved by using standard MIDI Control Change messages and the MIDI
REMOTE layers of PM5D. See next page for details.

PM5D & DME64N CASCADE / Mode 4: Audio from DME64N to PM5D
Mode 4: Audio from DME64N to PM5D
This uses the CASCADE IN port of PM5D, but is not a Cascade function. (MIX buses are not merged: you use the PATCH function to choose the required audio connections.)
NOTE:
It is not possible to use the Cascade function for combining DME cascade output with the MIX buses of PM5D.
Advantages:
Use DME for extra input channels, like a sub-mixer.
Patch DME cascade outputs to any input of PM5D.
Still all 4 slots can be used for outputs, such as multi-track recording.
Get 32 channels from DME to PM5D even at 96 kHz (The CASCADE IN/OUT ports can work in ‘DOUBLE SPEED’ mode.)
Disadvantages:
Inputs from up to 2 slots are lost (32 inputs).
DME Control function is not possible.
DME audio cannot be monitored from PM5D.
32 inputs/64 outputs from MY-slots

PM5D & DME24N with MY16-C/MY16-CII / Remote Control & Bi-directional Audio (Using MY16-C/MY16-CII)
■ Control and Monitoring
In the DME CONTROL SETUP screen, click ‘CONNECT’ and
select the type of component to be edited here.
In the Monitor Out box of DME Designer (in the Tools menu of
the main window), select a spare MY16-C/MY16-CII output to
link the DME monitor to the PM5D CUE bus.
Press to activate the DME monitor in the PM5D CUE bus.
This indicator will appear.
Choose the name of the
component to be edited here.
For PM5D, in the DME CONTROL-SETUP screen, select the
same cascade port as the MONITOR PORT, so you can hear the
DME monitor in the PM5D CUE bus.
DME scenes can be recalled from here. And scenes can be
stored (but they can only be overwritten if they already exist:
new scenes cannot be created).
So one tip is to create several ‘spare’ scenes containing the
initial data, which can be overwritten if needed.
Click here to control the GEQ or MATRIX mixer with the DCA faders
(or press SHIFT+FADER MODE on PM5D).

PM5D & DME24N with MY16-C/MY16-CII / Remote Control & Bi-directional Audio (Using MY16-C/MY16-CII)
■ Scene Recall MIDI Link
The SCENE RECALL LINK switch in
the DME CONTROL-SETUP screen
will enable PM5D to send a MIDI
message through the CobraNet
connection to recall a scene in the
DME, following the Program Change
table assignments.
You need to switch on Program Change Rx. (It doesn’t
matter about the MIDI PORT selection, as it will use the
MY16-C/MY16-CII port automatically.)
You need to switch on PROGRAM
CHANGE Tx. (It doesn’t matter about
the MIDI PORT selection, as it will use
the MY16-C/MY16-CII port
automatically.)
PM5D has a default Program Change assignment of 1-to-1,
but DME’s Program Change table will need to be set up by
the user: assign any scene to any number. (Click ‘All Assign’
for a quick set-up.)

DM2000 & DME64N CASCADE
Uni-directional Audio Cascade: DM2000 to DME64N
The DM2000 CASCADE OUT port can be used to send audio from the output buses to DME64N. DME64N cannot be controlled from DM2000.
This can be a convenient connection for audio only, and it does not use up any of the MY-card slots. It will also work with 02R96.
Advantages:
Use DME for larger matrix.
Use DME for extra output processing GEQs, crossovers, delays.
All slot I/O are available for other devices.
This cascade method still works at 96 kHz with no loss of channels. (The CASCADE IN/OUT ports can work in ‘DOUBLE SPEED’ mode.)
Disadvantages:
There is no patch for choosing which DM2000 channels send to the DME64N.
Cascade from DM2000 is pre-processing, so DM2000's output EQ/comp/delay are bypassed.
Can only return audio from DME via slot inputs.
Cannot control any DME functions from DM2000.
Cannot monitor DME audio on DM2000 CUE bus.

BI-DIRECTIONAL should be off, but CASCADE
MASTER setting doesn’t matter.
Switch ON all the CASCADE OUT channels which are
required.

DME64N Properties, Cascade Setting:
Choose -18dB Head Margin when connecting with
DM2000 in this way.
Check all the ports you wish to use with DM2000.
Un-checked ports can be used to cascade audio
between other DME64N units.

■ MIDI Link
Regular MIDI Control Change and Program Change messages can be exchanged through a separate
MIDI cable, providing some remote control possibilities.
