TOOLS for n Version2/Cubase AI Installation Guide
If using mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools with Windows:
· If you are using mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools V1.6.2, update
them to V1.6.3 (or higher) before installing TOOLS for n
Version2. This is necessary because the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver cannot work properly with the mLAN
Driver/mLAN Tools V1.6.2 installed.
· When using Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver, make sure to
disable the mLAN Driver. If this is enabled (on), Yamaha
Steinberg FW Driver cannot work because the mLAN
Driver uses the IEEE1394 interface.
· When using the mLAN Driver, make sure to turn off any
devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver or
disconnect them from the computer before enabling the
mLAN driver.
· Note that you may not need to disable the mLAN driver
when the computer is equipped with multiple IEEE1394
interfaces and a device compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW driver is connected to the different IEEE1394
interface from the other used by the mLAN driver.

4 ASIO Buffer Size (Windows only)
About window
Determines the buffer size for the ASIO driver.
5 Input Latency/Output Latency (Windows only)
Indicates the delay time for the audio input/output in millisecond units. Audio latency differs depending on the value of the
ASIO Buffer Size. The lower the value of the ASIO Buffer Size,
the lower the value of Audio Latency.
6 Enable MMCSS (Windows Vista/7 only)
Determines whether the MMCSS (Multimedia Class Scheduler
Service) is active or not on Windows Vista/7. If you place a
checkmark in the checkbox, MMCSS will be enabled and
driver performance will be improved.
Click this to call up the WDM Audio Routing window. From this
window, you can determine the input/output jack used for the
WDM Audio driver. In each section, the upper box selects the
device (only when two or three devices compatible with
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver are connected in daisy-chain
fashion) and the lower box selects the input or output jacks.
NOTE
· The device name of the WDM Audio driver is “Yamaha Steinberg FW
WDM Audio.” This parameter specifies which jacks accept the input
signals sent to a computer and to which jacks the output signals from
the computer are sent. The input channels are stereo channels. The
output channels are six consecutive channels from the stereo channels set in the output port setting.
· When using the Surround Monitoring, set “Monitor L/R” for the output
port setting.

only effective when two or more devices compatible with
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver are connected in daisy-chain
fashion.

This window indicates the version of the Yamaha Steinberg FW
Driver.
Word Clock
In a typical digital audio system, the signal referred to as
“word clock” is used to synchronize the process timing of
audio signals between multiple devices. If the word clock is
not transferred correctly, click noise may occur or recording
may not be successful. Normally, one device transmits a
reference word clock signal, and the other devices receive
this word clock signal and synchronize to it. The transmitting device is called the “word clock master” and the
receiving devices are called “word clock slaves”. Some
devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver can
function as the word clock slave. Select the word clock
source of the word clock signal in the Clock Source parameter.
Setting the audio driver buffer size
Noise produced when using applications such as DAW
software can affect audio recording and/or playback. In
most cases, you can solve these problems by adjusting the
audio buffer size (Audio Buffer Size). The buffer size can
usually be adjusted via the audio driver setup window in the
application. (When using ASIO compatible software for
Windows, the buffer size can be adjusted in the ASIO Buffer
Size parameter via the Control Panel of the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver.) While the higher buffer size reduces load
to the computer CPU but produces latency (time lag) during recording/playback, the smaller buffer size may result in
noise or the sound cutting off. Make sure to set the buffer
size to an appropriate value depending on the performance
of your computer, the number of audio/MIDI tracks being
recorded/played back on the DAW software, the number of
plug-in software, and so on.

Using multiple devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver
Using multiple devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver
Up to three devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver
can be used simultaneously. By connecting them in daisy-chain
fashion to a computer via IEEE1394 cables, you can upgrade your
music production system simply by adding other devices.
IEEE1394 terminal
When connecting two or three devices compatible with Yamaha
Steinberg FW Driver to a computer, the order of devices displayed
in the DAW (Cubase etc.) will be maintained even if the power is
turned off. The order of devices will be reproduced when turning
on the power of the connected devices. When the same two or
three devices are connected, a unique number (indicated at the
end of the device name) is automatically assigned to each of the
devices, in the order with which the devices are connected. The
number once assigned to a device will be maintained even if it is
disconnected or the power is turned off. If you want to reset the
order of devices displayed in DAW or the number assignment, follow the instructions below.

NOTE
· Keep in mind that up to two devices can be connected when the
Sample Rate is set to 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz. Even if you connect an
additional third device, the last recognized device (other than the
device specified as the Word Clock master) connected to the computer will not be available.
· Even if multiple IEEE1394 interfaces are installed on the computer,
make sure to daisy-chain connect all devices to the jacks of a single
interface. This is necessary since the computer can only recognize
devices connected to a specific, single IEEE1394 interface jack, and
cannot recognize devices connected to different jacks of different
IEEE1394 interfaces even though they are installed on the same
computer.

Turn on the power of the first device connected
directly to the computer.
Wait until the tab corresponding to the first device
appears on the Control Panel of the Yamaha FW Driver
window, indicating that the computer has actually recognized the first device.
Turn on the power of the second device that is daisychain connected to the first device.
The tab corresponding to the second device appears on
