will be able
to control
the preamps.

YAMAHA
Console Interface Operations
Using a Yamaha digital console to remotely
control your Aphex 1788A or 188, remote controlled preamps. You will need to (depending on
which Yamaha console you are interfacing with)
come out of the serial RS-422 or MIDI data port
of your Yamaha console into the Model 5200.
From the Model 5200, you will come out Ethernet
into a router. The router will have to connect to
an Ethernet switch at the preamps and the switch
will need to have adequate connections to connect
the amount of Aphex remote pres that you have.
Each Aphex 1788A or 188, will need to be set
with it’s own unique NET number, from 1 to 16.
You cannot have two pres with the same NET
number!
The Gain limits on the Aphex pres is 26dB to 65
dB. The gain range on the Yamaha faders is ∞ to
+10dB.
*You must have the digital outs of the Aphex pres
connected to the digital inputs of your Yamaha
console!
On the DM 2000, you can program the midi out
to Aphex midi protocol. Otherwise, you will need
to connect the Model 5200, to a Yamaha console
via an RS-422 serial cable. Then the 5200, will
translate the Yamaha protocol to Aphex Ethernet
commands.
Set up your Yamaha console for the Yamaha
AD8HR remote pres as described in your Yamaha
owners manual Slot 1, 1-8, Slot 2, 9-16. Ext. HA
port select Slot 1, 1-8
Connect the Aphex pres to your console. Select
the master clock source for your system and slave
all of the other clocks from that clock source.
“Do not daisy chain the word clock!” Use a word
clock distribution amplifier or if you have the
Aphex Anaconda 828M, full word clock distribution is provided by it.
To control the Aphex remote pres by the faders
on your Yamaha console you will need to set the
fader mode to AUX/MTRX.
Now you have to press the Remote Wakeup button on the Model 5200.
Adjusting the faders on your Yamaha console in
the AUX/MTRX mode will control the gain of the
Aphex pres. Putting the fader mode back to fader
you are controlling the mix.
Important Notes
1. Be sure your DHCP server has ports 1198 and
1199 available and unlocked.
2. Only one DHCP Server can be allowed to exist
on the LAN. If ant additional routers are attached
to the LAN, the must have their DHCP servers
disabled.
3. We do not recommend using HUBS only
switches on the LAN.
4. If there are any fixed IP address on the LAN
other than the Aphex 1788A’s or 188’s, or computers, you will need your network administrator
to make sure they are not duplicated.
5. There cannot be a firewall splitting up any part
of the LAN. But the whole LAN can be inside a
firewall.
* The Yamaha M7CL is a single layer device and
will not natively control our pres.!
Avid/Digidesign
Console Interface Operations
Using an Avid/ Digidesign control surface such as
the Icon, D-Command or Pro Tools HD software
to control your Aphex 1788A’s or 188’s via the
Model 5200 is quite easy. The Model 5200 will
accept and translate the remote protocols for Avid
remote pres and allow you to control your Aphex
preamps from your Avid control surface.
The one thing that you will need to purchase to
make your system work with the Model 5200 and
Aphex pre’s is a MIDI interface for you Pro Tools
system. Connect the MIDI IN’s and OUT’s from
your MIDI interface into the Model 5200. MIDI
out from Pro Tools to MIDI in of the 5200, MIDI
out of the 5200, to MIDI in of your Pro Tools
MIDI interface.
Connect your Model 5200 Ethernet port to a
router. We suggest connecting your router to a
switcher (that typically lives next to your Aphex
pres).
Your Aphex pre’s will need to be setup with their
own unique “Net” number as explained in the
Aphex 1788A or 188 owner’s manual.
In Pro Tools you will need to configure your software for the Digidesign PRE as described in their
owner’s manual.
Press the remote WAKEUP button
You know have control of your Aphex 1788A or
188’s from your Avid Digidesgn system.
MIDI
Interface Guide
Using MIDI
Direct MIDI SysEx Strings
Direct MIDI SysEx strings are exactly the same as the parametric strings used for indirect MIDI control (described
later). When filling in the three bytes in the grayed area, refer to reference data at the end of this chapter.
Understanding Ch, Dev and Net Offsets
Please observe two important facts about MIDI Channel, Device, and Net Numbers.
1. All three are used in decimal form on the 1788A and 188. Ch and Dev go from 01 to 16 and Net goes from
001 to 128. You will need to convert decimal to hexadecimal for use in SysEx strings. A handy conversion table
is located in this chapter’s reference data.
2. Channel, Device, and Net numbers in the SysEx strings must be programmed with an offset of -1 from the
numbers that are indicated on the 1788A or 188 front panel readout. For example, if the 1788A or 188 is set to
Ch 01, Dev 02, and Net 003, the SysEx code would look like 00 01 02, not 01 02 03. This may be confusing at
first, but you will find it quickly becomes easy to deal with.
Setting Up The Controller
The method of programming a MIDI control varies from product to product. To successfully interface a MIDI
control surface to an Aphex 1788A or 188, you will need to learn the control surface. Once you have determined
the way to program your controller, you can begin applying SysEx strings to the controls. We will next illustrate
this process by using a general purpose MIDI controller.
Here’s how we’re going to set it up. The MIDI controller will be set up to control the Input Gains of all eight
channels of a 1788A or 188. The push buttons under each fader will be programmed to activate/deactivate the
Mutes of each channel.

NOTE: We will refer to the Reference Data at the end of this chapter for command codes used
by the 1788A.
When programming each control, use the following setup:
1. Single-byte transmit
2. Faders: string; Buttons: string toggle
3. Fader Limits: 26 to 65
4. Faders: use “pr” in the value byte. This is the PC1600’s code for grabbing the fader’s value.
5. For this demonstration, we’re using command code 00 for Input Gain and 07 for Mute. We’re
declaring the 1788A is set for Channel 1, Device 1, Net 1.
Now program in the following strings:
Connections
Connect a professional MIDI cable from the PC 1600x’s MIDI OUT jack to the 1788A’s MIDI
IN jack.
Controlling Multiple 1788A’s
Additional units can be stacked by connecting the MIDI THRU to the next MIDI IN, and so-on.
If the added 1788A’s are kept on the same MIDI channel, they must be given different MIDI
device numbers.
The next step would be to program the additional controls on the MIDI controller with SysEx
strings associated with the additional MIDI device numbers. For example, if one additional
1788A is used, the second set of eight faders and buttons of the PC1600 could be coded
