01X Channel
Module*1
This software reproduces the EQ and Dynamics effects built into each
channel of the YAMAHA Digital Mixing Studio 01X, and uses the
processing power of the computer for the effects.
You can use the Dynamics and 4-band EQ functions (that can be also
found on Yamaha Digital Mixing consoles) as effects software. You can
also import the 01X settings, thus reproducing the songs created on
the 01X.
Pitch Fix*1
This program is used to edit the pitch of recorded vocals. More than
just a pitch processor, it can also be used to change the character of
the vocals. Moreover, you can use MIDI data on the host application to
control the Pitch Fix effect. For more information on setting up with the
host application, refer to the Pitch Fix PDF owner’s manual.
Vocal Rack*1
This is a multi-effect program for processing vocals. The plug-in
features various effects, including a high-pass filter, compressor and a
3-band equalizer.
Final Master*1
This is a multi-effect program for mastering purposes. It features a
compressor, limiter and soft-clip function, and allows you to split the
signal into three bands for separate multi-band processing.

■ About Open Plug-in Technology
You can start mLAN Graphic Patchbay as either stand-alone software or as a plug-in for an Open Plugin Technology compatible application.
Open Plug-in Technology (OPT) is a new software format that enables you to control MIDI devices from a
music software sequencer. For example, OPT enables you to start and operate various parts of your music
system, such as Plug-in Board editors and mixing control editors, directly from an OPT-compatible
sequencer. OPT also makes it unnecessary to set MIDI drivers for each application, streamlining your
music production system and making all operations more convenient and seamless.
About OPT Levels
The client application and its compatibility with OPT can be divided into three levels, as shown below.
Level 1 (OPT Panels) provides basic support for opening and displaying OPT control panels that can transmit
data via a clients’ external MIDI connectors.
Typically, this enables basic hardware editor control panels to operate properly.
English
Level 2 (OPT Processors) provides support for real-time MIDI processors and panel automation. Typically, this
enables both real-time and offline MIDI effects (e.g., arpeggiators, transposers, etc.) to operate properly and
supply automation to OPT panels.
Level 3 (OPT Views) provides support for edit views and MIDI processors and panels that require direct access to
client sequencer storage structures.
Typically, this enables support of sophisticated MIDI edit views (e.g., list editors, auto accompaniment, data
checkers, etc.).
OPT Level Implementation for the mLAN Graphic Patchbay
This chart shows the OPT-compatibility of mLAN Graphic Patchbay.

PANELS (Level 1)
All mLAN Graphic Patchbay functions work under the client applications of any OPT level (Panels
(Level 1), Processors (Level 2), and Views (Level 3)).
• Certain operations may not work as expected if there is no corresponding function in the client application (sequencer,
etc.). The highest level of implementation for the client application is indicated in the OPT logo (which appears along with
the version information in the application).

q 1394 Adapter Card ID
This indicates the particular ID of the IEEE 1394 (FireWire/iLink) interface card installed to the
computer. When several cards are installed, this is used to select the desired card. Cards not recognized
by the mLAN driver are not displayed.
• The correct name of the manufacturer or vendor may not be displayed depending on the particular card you are using.
w Required CPU
Determines the computer’s required processing power (the amount of processing load applied to the
computer by the mLAN driver).
You can also control the processing load by adjusting the latency in “ASIO mLAN Control Panel.”
(see below)
Latency and Required CPU
A particular computer configuration (i.e., processing speed and system memory size) may affect the
computer’s ability to properly record and play back audio data in your audio sequencer, resulting in
noise or other audio problems.
In most cases, you can solve these problems by adjusting the latency (delay time). (See “Latency of
mLAN” on page 16.)

#mLAN InstallGuide_E2.fm Page 16 Monday, October 4, 2004 11:53 AM
However depending on the performance of your computer and on how it is being used (i.e., whether other
applications are being used simultaneously, or whether multiple mLAN devices are connected, etc.), you
may still experience noise or sound interruption even after increasing the latency. In this case, change the
“Required CPU” setting to “Medium Performance” or “Low Performance” to lighten the processing load on
your computer, and then adjust the latency (the Preferred Buffer Size setting below) once again.
• Lower latency values result in shorter delay times and work better for real-time recording and
playback.
• Higher latency values result in longer delay times, but allow for use of more audio channels and
plug-in effects (thus reducing the computer’s momentary processing load).
Conversely, if you experience no noise or interruptions even with the “Preferred Buffer Size” setting
described below set to the minimum, you can minimize the overall latency by setting Required CPU to
“High Performance” and then adjusting the latency once again.
● Latency of mLAN
Audio latency (msec)
English
Audio latency is determined by the “Preferred Buffer Size” setting in the “ASIO mLAN Control Panel.”
The audio latency value is shown in the “ASIO mLAN Control Panel” (see below).
MIDI latency (msec)
The MIDI latency value varies with the mLAN driver version.
For information on the MIDI latency of your mLAN driver version, refer to the “MIDI_Latency.txt” file,
which you can access by selecting [Program files | mLAN Tools | YAMAHA].
● ASIO mLAN Control Panel
When you start the ASIO mLAN Control Panel, the system displays the following dialog box.
When using the mLAN ASIO Driver, open the ASIO Control Panel within the driver settings of the DAW
software (the particular menu depends on the software you are using) and set the Preferred Buffer Size
as needed.
• Also, when using the mLAN WDM driver, adjust as necessary the latency value of the WDM driver (which corresponds to the latency of the ASIO driver in this chart) within the driver settings of the DAW software.
• The initial setting of the Preferred Buffer Size of the mLAN ASIO driver is the smallest value.
q Preferred Buffer Size
This parameter enables you to
specify the size of the buffer inside
the mLAN ASIO driver.
w Sample Size
This parameter enables you to
specify the bit resolution for audio
data transmission and reception.
e Latency
This field indicates the audio latency
value for transmission and reception.

R1, R2, etc.
This indicates the data reception status. “R1” corresponds to
MIDI reception while “R2 corresponds to audio reception from
the mLAN device. The number of tabs shown differs
depending on your particular computer configuration.
Receive Status
This mark indicates the order in which the data of each format is received. The
symbol “o” indicates that data in the corresponding format is being received. The
symbol “-” indicates that data in a different format is being received. For example, the
symbol “oooooooo-” in the “Audio” field indicates that nine sequences have been
received, and the first eight sequences are in the audio data format. The “Unknown”
field displays symbols if sequences in unknown formats are received. These fields
are blank if no mLAN data is received. If an error occurs during reception, a red
warning message flashes. In this case, check the transmission device.

w Latency
Determines the basic latency of the mLAN communications, or how quickly the data is processed after
a command is issued. Choose an option appropriate to your environment.
About latency in an mLAN network
The particular configuration of your computer (processing speed, system memory size, etc.) may affect
its ability to properly record and play back audio data in your audio sequencer, resulting in noise or other
audio problems. In most cases, you can solve the problem by adjusting the latency (delay time).
• A small latency value results in a short delay time and gives optimum response for real-time
recording/playback.
• A large latency value results in a long delay time, but allows for use of more audio channels and
plug-in effects.
● Types of latency in an mLAN network
Audio latency (msec)
Audio latency is determined by the basic latency (selected in the mLAN Driver Setup window) and Preferred Buffer Size (specified in the ASIO mLAN Control Panel) (see next page).
MIDI latency (msec)
The MIDI latency value varies with the mLAN driver version.
For information on the MIDI latency of your mLAN driver version, refer to the “MIDI_Latency.txt” file,
which you can access by selecting [mLAN Tools | YAMAHA | Manual] on the corresponding computer.
