Changing the input patching
Input patching
CL series consoles and I/O devices feature two types of patching: Dante audio network
patching and CL console internal patching.
For Dante audio network patching, you will use the DANTE INPUT PATCH window. In this
window, you can patch the CL console and I/O device inputs. Sixty-four (64) channels can be
input from a Dante audio network to a CL series console. You can choose up to 64 channels
from a maximum of 512 channels (logical value) of Dante audio network signals. Select the I/
O device (up to 64 channels) that you want to control from the CL series console.
Then, route the input signals (that were patched in the DANTE INPUT PATCH screen) to
channels on the CL series console. To do this, choose input ports from DANTE 1-64 in the
GAIN/PATCH screen.
STEP
1. Use the Bank Select keys in the Centralogic section to select the input channels that
you want to control.
2. Press the channel number/channel name field on the OVERVIEW screen.
3. Select the type of port in the category select list on the PATCH/NAME screen, and
use the port select buttons to select the input port.
NOTE
By default, DANTE 1-64 are assigned to input channels 1-64.
Output patching
Use the OUTPUT PORT screen to patch the CL console’s output channels and Dante audio
network. In this window, assign output channel signals to DANTE 1-64 ports.
NOTE
By default, MIX 1 - 24 are assigned to DANTE 1 - 24, MATRIX 1 - 8 are assigned to DANTE 25
- 32, STEREO L/R are assigned to DANTE 33/34, and MONO is assigned to DANTE 35.
OVERVIEW screen
Next, patch the output signals from DANTE 1-64 (assigned in the OUTPUT PORT SETUP
screen) to I/O rack outputs. Use the OUTPUT PATCH screen of the I/O RACK to make these
assignments.

Input channels
Sending the signal from an input channel to the
STEREO/MONO bus
Relationship between analog and digital gain while Gain
Compensation is on
If Gain Compensation is on, adjusting the analog gain by a specific amount will cause the I/O
device to output to the audio network a signal that is attenuated by the same amount.
Therefore, the signals on the audio network will maintain a constant corrected level in the
digital domain.
For example, assume that the analog gain value has been set to +30 dB and Gain
Compensation is now turned on. Under this condition, if you raise the analog gain value to
+45 dB, the level of the signal sent to the audio network will stay at +30 dB (that is, attenuated
by -15 dB).
The STEREO bus and MONO bus are used to send signals to the main speakers. There are
two ways to send signals to the STEREO bus or MONO bus: ST/MONO mode and LCR
mode. You can select the mode individually for each channel. These two modes differ as
follows.
 ST/MONO mode
This mode sends signals from the input channel to the STEREO bus and to the MONO bus
independently.
• Signals sent from an input channel to the STEREO bus and to the MONO bus can be
switched on or off individually.
• The panning of a signal sent from an input channel to the STEREO bus L/R is controlled by
the TO ST PAN knob. (Signals sent to the MONO bus are not affected by this knob.)
• The left/right volume balance of a signal sent from an ST IN channel to the STEREO bus is
controlled by this knob.
If PAN/BALANCE mode is set to PAN, you will be able to adjust the pan position of signals
sent to the STEREO bus L/R individually (page 39).
At this time, the gain of each signal input to the CL series console will be adjusted by the digital
gain parameter of the CL series console.
If the FOH console and the monitoring console are sharing one I/O device, adjusting the
analog gain on the FOH console will not affect the input level on the monitoring console,
because the level of the signal on the audio network is maintained at a constant level.
However, please note that if the signal is distorted due to a high level of analog gain, you must
first turn the Gain Compensation function off, set the gain to an appropriate input level, and
then turn the function back on. If you try to lower the analog gain level while the Gain
Compensation function is on, the signal on the audio network will be amplified by the same
amount due to the Gain Compensation function, and the signal will remain distorted.
 LCR mode
This mode sends input channel signals to three buses (STEREO (L/R) and MONO (C))
simultaneously.
• Signals sent from an input channel to the STEREO bus and MONO bus will be switched on
or off collectively.
• The CSR (Center Side Ratio) knob specifies the level ratio between signals sent from an
input channel to the STEREO (L/R) bus and to the MONO (C) bus.
• The TO ST PAN knob/BALANCE knob specifies the level of signals sent from an input
channel to the STEREO (L/R) bus and MONO (C) bus.
NOTE
You can perform this operation by assigning the Gain Compensation on/off function to one of the
USER DEFINED keys.
NOTE
If you want to monitor the signal of the STEREO bus or MONO bus through headphones or
similar devices, press the MONITOR button in the Function Access Area to select “LCR” as the
monitor source before you continue with the following procedure.

Signal sent to the MONO (C) bus
The MIX buses are used mainly for the purpose of sending signals to foldback speakers on
stage, or to external effect processors. The MATRIX buses are used to produce a mix that is
independent of the STEREO bus or MIX buses, and is typically sent to a master recorder or
to a backstage monitoring system.
You can send a signal from an input channel to a MIX/MATRIX bus in the following three ways.
Signal sent to the STEREO (L) bus

 For a VARI type MIX bus or a MATRIX bus
The TO MIX SEND LEVEL knob is displayed in the same color as the corresponding knob
in the SELECTED CHANNEL section. In this case, you can use the corresponding knob in
the SELECTED CHANNEL section to adjust the send level.
 If the MIX/MATRIX bus is a stereo bus
You can link the main parameters of two adjacent odd/even-numbered MIX/MATRIX
buses. If the send-destination MIX/MATRIX bus is assigned as stereo, the left knob of the
two adjacent TO MIX/MATRIX SEND LEVEL knobs will operate as the TO MIX/MATRIX
PAN knob. (If BALANCE mode is selected in the TO STEREO/MONO window, it will
operate as a BALANCE knob).

NOTE
• If you want to monitor the signal being sent to a specific MIX/MATRIX bus, use the Bank Select
keys in the Centralogic section to access the corresponding MIX/MATRIX channel, and then
press the appropriate [CUE] key in the Centralogic section.
• For a MONO channel, the right knob will adjust the common send level to the two MIX/MATRIX
buses, and the left knob will adjust the panning between the two MIX/MATRIX buses. Rotating
the left TO MIX/MATRIX SEND LEVEL knob counter-clockwise will increase the amount of signal
sent to the odd-numbered MIX/MATRIX bus, and rotating it clockwise will increase the amount
sent to the even-numbered MIX/MATRIX bus.
• For a STEREO channel, if BALANCE mode has been selected on the TO STEREO/MONO
window, the right knob adjusts the common send level for the two MIX/MATRIX buses, and the
left knob adjusts the volume balance of the left and right signals sent to the two MIX/MATRIX
buses. Rotating the left TO MIX/MATRIX SEND LEVEL knob counter-clockwise will increase the
amount of signal sent from the L-channel to the odd-numbered MIX/MATRIX bus, and rotating it
clockwise will increase the amount sent from the R-channel to the even-numbered MIX/MATRIX
bus. If PAN mode has been selected in the TO STEREO/MONO window, the left knob will function
as the PAN knob. The right knob function will be the same as in BALANCE mode.
MIX buses can be either a FIXED type whose send level is fixed, or a VARI type whose send
level is variable. The MATRIX buses are all VARI type. You can switch between FIXED and
VARI types for each two adjacent odd/even-numbered MIX buses. To do so, press the SETUP
button and then the BUS SETUP button to open the BUS SETUP window.

NOTE
• The EQ field in the OVERVIEW screen shows the response of the EQ. In this OVERVIEW screen,
you can edit the parameter settings by using the EQ knobs in the SELECTED CHANNEL section.
• EQ settings can be saved and recalled at any time using the dedicated library. You can also take
advantage of a wide variety of presets suitable for various instruments or situations.
• You can also access the SELECTED CHANNEL VIEW screen, and use the knobs in the
SELECTED CHANNEL section to edit the EQ and high-pass filter (page 9).
• Even when the HPF/EQ window is displayed, you can use the knobs in the SELECTED
CHANNEL section to control the EQ.
Each input channel and output channel on a CL series console provides a four-band EQ and
dynamics.
EQ can be used on all input channels and all output channels. An attenuator is provided
immediately before the EQ, allowing you to attenuate the level of the input signal so that the
GAIN setting for EQ will not cause the signal to clip. Input channels also provide a high-pass
filter that is independent of the EQ.
Input channels provide two dynamics processors: Dynamics 1 can be used as a gate, ducking
device, compressor, or expander, while Dynamics 2 can be used as a compressor, hard
compander, soft compander, or de-esser. Output channels provide one dynamics processor,
which can be used as a compressor, expander, hard compander, or soft compander.

production needs. The Low/High shelving filters have “Q” parameters that
allow knee adjustments.
AGGRESSIVE
This EQ type features “effective musical” characteristics. It allows you to
create an aggressive tone, making it a very powerful tool for artistic
expression.
SMOOTH
This EQ type focuses on a “smooth sound quality.” It allows you to create
natural sounds without significant modifications to the atmosphere of the
original sound.
LEGACY
This is the standard EQ type found in classic Yamaha digital mixers, such as
the PM1D and the PM5D. On the left side of the EQ graph, you can switch

This chapter explains the DCA Group and Mute Group functions that enable you to control the
level or muting of multiple channels together, the Channel Link function that links the
parameters of multiple channels, and the operations that enable you to copy or move
parameters between channels.
DCA group
CL series consoles feature sixteen DCA groups that enable you to control the level of multiple
channels simultaneously.
DCA groups enable you to assign input and output channels to sixteen groups, so that the
Centralogic section faders 1 - 8 can be used to control the level of all channels in each group.
A single DCA fader will control the level of all input channels belonging to the same DCA group
while maintaining the level difference between the channels. This provides a convenient way
in which drum mics, for example, can be grouped.

NOTE
• You can also access the DCA/MUTE GROUP ASSIGN MODE window by pressing the DCA/
MUTE GROUP field in the OVERVIEW screen.
• You can assign a single channel to more than one DCA group. In this case, the value will be the
sum of the levels of all assigned DCA group faders.
• The DCA/MUTE GROUP field of the OVERVIEW screen indicates the DCA group(s) to which
each channel is assigned. Numbers that are lit yellow in the upper and middle row of this field
indicate the DCA groups to which that channel belongs.
Assigning channels to a DCA group
There are two ways to assign a channel to a DCA group.
• You can select a specific DCA group and then specify the channels to be assigned to the
group, or
• You can select a specific channel and then specify the DCA group to which it should be
assigned.
NOTE
• DCA group settings are saved as part of the scene.
• With CL V3.0 and later, you can now assign the Stereo/Mono bus master, Mix bus master, and
Matrix bus master channels to a DCA group on channels other than input channels. DCA groups
were formerly used exclusively for input channels. However, with this new feature, you can use
the DCA groups for output master channels, which enables for more flexible simultaneous
controls.

Channel Link function
Channel Link is a function that links the operation of parameters such as fader and EQ
between input and output channels. Two or more channels that are linked are called a “link
group”. There is no limit on the number of link groups you can create, or on the number and
combinations of channels that can be included in these link groups. You can select the types
of parameters to be linked for each link group. However, input channels and output channels
cannot coexist on the same link group.

• Removing a channel from a link group
Hold down any [SEL] key in the same link group, and press the [SEL] key for the channel
that you want to remove.
NOTE
• If you link Dynamics 1 or 2 for two or more input channels, the parameter values will be linked,
but the key-in sources are not linked and can instead be set for each channel. The behavior of
key-in signals is linked in units of 8ch*. For details about dynamics, see “EQ and Dynamics”
(page 64).
• Changing the level balance between channels that belong to the same link group
While pressing and holding down the [SEL] key for the desired linked channel, adjust the
parameter value. You can also remove all linked channels from the same link group
temporarily. This can be helpful if you want to edit parameters that are linked to each
other while maintaining the same relative level differences. For example, this may be the
case for parameters such as the HA analog gain and fader. While you are holding down
the [SEL] key, the HA analog gain and fader values will not be linked. (However, you
cannot temporarily cancel this link during the “fading”phase of a recalled scene.)

Preview mode lets you view or edit the settings of a scene stored in memory without affecting
the signal processing of the current scene. When you recall a scene in this mode, the settings
of the newly recalled scene will appear on the panel of the CL series console, but the signal
processing of the current scene will remain as it was prior to the recall. Even if you modify the
settings and save them as a new scene or by overwriting, the signal processing of the current
scene will remain as it was prior to the recall. During an actual performance, it can be
convenient to use this to check the content of the scene you intend to recall next, or to make
minor changes to a scene and then store it.
The following functions will not operate in Preview mode.
• Synchronization with CL Editor
• Switching users
• Changing the User Level

Talkback and Oscillator
Using Talkback
The Talkback function sends the signal (that is input at the input jacks) to the desired bus.
Talkback is a function that sends the signal of a mic connected to the TALKBACK jack to the
desired bus. This is used mainly to convey instructions from the operator or sound engineer
to the performers and staff. If necessary, you can also use a mic connected to an INPUT jack
on the I/O device or the OMNI IN jack on the CL unit for talkback.
CL series consoles also feature an oscillator that can output a sine wave or pink noise to the
desired bus, so that you will be able to check external equipment or to test the acoustical
response of the room or hall.
The diagram below shows the signal flow of the talkback and oscillator signals.
STEP
1. In the Function Access Area, press the MONITOR button.
2. Press the TALKBACK display button or the ASSIGN field in the MONITOR screen.
3. Connect a mic to the front panel TALKBACK jack, and turn the TALKBACK GAIN knob
to adjust the input sensitivity of the mic.

PREMIUM RACK
This chapter explains how to use the built-in graphic EQ, parametric EQ, effects, and Premium
Rack.
MATRIX 1-6,7-8
(CUE B L,R)
About the virtual rack
CL series consoles enable you to use the built-in graphic EQ (subsequently abbreviated as
“GEQ” ), parametric EQ (subsequently abbreviated as “PEQ” ), and effects/processors to
modify signals. You can use two types of GEQ: 31BandGEQ which enables you to freely
adjust thirty-one bands (frequency regions), and Flex15GEQ which enables you to adjust any
fifteen of thirty-one bands. The 8Band PEQ allows you to freely adjust 8 bands (frequency
regions), and also features an HPF, an LPF, and 3 notch filters.
You can also use 54 different effect types. The CL series consoles feature Premium Rack,
which employs VCM technology. This technology models analog circuitry on a component
level to faithfully reproduce amazing analog sounds. The Premium Rack offers seven types of
processors.
In order to use a GEQ, PEQ, effect, or Premium Rack, you must mount the GEQ, PEQ, effect,
or Premium Rack in each virtual rack, and patch the input and output of that rack to the
desired signal route. In other words, the operation is just as though you had installed a signal
processor or effect device in an actual rack, and used patch cords to connect it. You can
mount a GEQ or PEQ instance in each of the sixteen racks 1-16 and EFFECT, an effect rack
instance in each of the eight racks 1-8, and a Premium Rack instance in each of the eight
racks 1-8.
Up to two channels of input and output can be used for each rack. (However, if the
“31BandGEQ” is mounted in a rack, there will be only one channel each for input and output.)
The figure below shows the signal flow for the virtual racks.

(CUE B L,R)
MATRIX INSERT 1,2 IN 1-6,7-8(CUE B L,R)
NOTE
• In addition to the virtual racks for GEQ, PEQ, effects and Premium Rack, the CL console also
provides racks for mounting an I/O device (such as an R series) or external head amps (Yamaha
AD8HR, SB168-ES, etc.). For details, refer to “I/O devices and external head amps” (page 167).
• With CL V1.7 and later, you can use the [SEL] key to switch channels in the EFFECT popup
window, GEQ popup window, and PREMIUM RACK popup window.
Pressing a top panel [SEL] key in the EFFECT popup window while operating the effect
parameter will switch to the window of the effect that is inserted in that channel. The same applies
to the GEQ popup window and the PREMIUM RACK popup window. You can also switch from
the EFFECT popup window to the GEQ popup window or PREMIUM RACK popup window. The
following items change according to the target channel.

About AUTOMIXER
Inserting Automixer in channels post-fader
This section explains how to mount Automixer in a virtual rack, and insert Automixer input and
output into channels (excluding ST IN channels) post-fader (POST ON). For details on
Automixer operations, refer to the following section “Using Automixer.”
Automixer is included as a standard feature on the CL series. Automixer searches for enabled
mics and automatically optimizes gain distribution, for uses such as speeches without scripts.
This allows uniform system gain to be maintained among multiple mics, freeing the engineer
from making constant fader adjustments.
STEP
1. Refer to steps 1-8 in “Virtual rack operations” (page 136) to mount Automixer in
rack 1 and set its input source and output destination.
2. Refer to “Inserting an external device into a channel” (page 23) to insert Automixer
in post-fader (POST ON field).
Automixer operating principle
With the Dugan speech system used in Automixer, you can automatically adjust the automix
gain for up to 16 mics used for speeches.
When 1 person speaks on multiple mics
When 2 people speak on multiple mics
Using Automixer
Mic input audio

Mic input audio

Master field
Channel control field
Gain (dB) in
Automix
When 1 person is speaking, the gain on the mic
being used is immediately increased and the gain
on all other mics is reduced. The same operation
occurs even if another person is speaking.
Gain (dB) in
Automix
If 2 people are speaking at the same time, gain is
automatically distributed so that the total gain is
consistent across both mics, and the gain on the
remaining mic is reduced.
The Dugan speech system functions differently from a limiter or auto level controller. When
multiple people are speaking, the engineer can adjust the each level using the faders as
normal. Even if nobody is speaking, the system searches for mic audio and automatically
distributes gain. Therefore, faders can be left in their raised positions.
Channel display
The auto mix gain meter for each channel and man (yellow), auto (green), and mute (red)
settings are shown for channels 1-8 and channels 9-16.
If you select the channel 1-8 or 9-16 region, the display channel for the channel control field
will switch to 1-8 or 9-16.
(For 8ch Automixer, only channels 1-8 are shown.)

Reference Manual
Graphic EQ, Parametric EQ, Effects, and PREMIUM RACK
3 weight
 Channel control field
Adjusts the correlative sensitivity between input channels. When there is no input, adjust
the weight setting so that all auto mix gain meters are at about the same level. For
example, if you can hear noise near one mic (such as noise from a computer ventilation
fan or an air conditioner), you can suppress the noise by reducing the weight setting for
that channel.
To change the channel weight settings, use the [TOUCH AND TURN] knob to adjust the
weight slider.
Automixer calculates the ratio of input level for specific channels for all input mixes in the

Some effect types can be mounted only in racks 1, 3, 5 or 7.
8 preset
To use an internal effect via send and return, assign the output of a MIX channel to the input
of the effect, and assign the output of the effect to an input channel. In this case, the
corresponding output channel is used as a master channel for the effect send, and the input
channel is used as an effect return channel.

The internal effects fall into two categories; “STEREO type” (2-in/2-out) effects that process
the L/R channel input signals independently, and “MIX type” (1-in/2-out) effects that mix the
two channels before processing them.
If signals are assigned to both the L and R inputs of an effect, the way in which the L/R
channels are processed will depend on whether a Stereo effect type or a Mix effect type is
selected, as follows.

Using the Tap Tempo function
“Tap tempo” is a function that lets you specify the delay time of a delay effect or the modulation
speed of a modulation effect by striking a key at the desired interval. The Tap Tempo function
can be used for delay-type and modulation-type effects in which the BPM parameter is
included, and specify the delay time or modulation speed. To use the Tap function, you must
assign Tap Tempo to a USER DEFINED key, and then operate that USER DEFINED key.

Effects and tempo synchronization
Special characteristics of the TEMPO parameter
The TEMPO parameter has the following characteristics that are unlike other parameters.
• Value shared with all effects (However, this applies only if SYNC is ON and if the MIDI CLK
button is ON when MIDI clock is input to the MIDI IN jack.)
• You cannot store it to or recall it from the Effects Library. (You can store it to and recall it from
a Scene.)
This means that the TEMPO value may not necessarily be the same when an effect is recalled
as when that effect was stored. Here is an example.
Store the effect: TEMPO=120  Change TEMPO to 60  TEMPO=60 
Recall the effect: TEMPO=60
Normally when you change the TEMPO, the DELAY (or FREQ.) will be re-set accordingly.
However if the DELAY (or FREQ.) were changed, the effect would sound differently when
recalled than when it was stored. To prevent the effect from changing in this way between
store and recall, the CL series does not update the DELAY (or FREQ.) value when an effect
is recalled, even if the TEMPO is no longer the same as when that effect was stored.
* The NOTE parameter is calculated based on the following values.
Some effects of the CL series can be synchronized with the tempo. There are two such types
of effect: delay-type effects and modulation-type effects. For delay-type effects, the delay time
will change according to the tempo. For modulation-type effects, the frequency of the
modulation signal will change according to the tempo.
Parameters related to tempo synchronization
The following five parameters are related to tempo synchronization.
1) SYNC 2) NOTE 3) TEMPO 4) DELAY 5) FREQ.
SYNC: ..............................This is the on/off switch for tempo synchronization.
NOTE and TEMPO: .........These are the basic parameters for tempo synchronization.
DELAY and FREQ.: ..........DELAY is the delay time, and FREQ. is the frequency of the modulation
signal. These directly affect the way in which the effect sound will
change. DELAY is relevant only for delay-type effects, and FREQ. is
relevant only for modulation-type effects.
How the parameters are related
Tempo synchronization calculates the DELAY (or FREQ.) value*a from the TEMPO and
NOTE.
Turn SYNC ON
Change NOTE DELAY (or FREQ.) will be set
In this case, the DELAY (or FREQ.) value is calculated as follows.
DELAY (or FREQ.) = NOTE x 4 x (60/TEMPO)
= 1/48
= 1/24
= 1/16
= 1/12
= 3/32
= 1/8
= 1/6
= 3/16
= 1/4
= 3/8
= 1/2
= 3/4
= 1/1
= 2/1
Using the Freeze effect
This section explains how to use the “FREEZE” effect type, which provides the functionality
of a simple sampler. When this effect type is selected, you can perform operations on screen
to record (sample) and play back a sound.
Change TEMPO DELAY (or FREQ.) will be set
In this case, the DELAY (or FREQ.) value is calculated as follows.
DELAY = NOTE x 4 x (60/TEMPO) sec
FREQ. = (TEMPO/60) / (NOTE x 4) Hz
NOTE
Effect types “FREEZE” and “HQ.PITCH” can be used only in rack 1, 3, 5, or 7.
STEP
1. In the Function Access Area, press the RACK button.
2. Press the EFFECT tab in the VIRTUAL RACK window.
3. Press the effect container in rack 1, 3, 5, or 7.
4. Press the effect type field in the EFFECT EDIT window to open the EFFECT TYPE
window, and select “FREEZE.”
5. To begin recording (sampling), press the REC button and then press the PLAY
button.
6. To play back the recorded sample, press the PLAY button.
Example 1: When SYNC=ON, DELAY=250 ms, TEMPO=120, you change NOTE from
8th note to quarter note
DELAY= new NOTE x 4 x (60/TEMPO)
= (1/4) x 4 x (60/120)
= 0.5 (sec)
= 500 ms
Thus, the DELAY will change from 250 ms to 500 ms.
Example 2: When SYNC=ON, DELAY=250 ms, NOTE=8th note, you change TEMPO
from 120 to 121
DELAY= NOTE x 4 x (60/new TEMPO)
= (1/8) x 4 x (60/121)
= 0.2479 (sec)
= 247.9 (ms)
Thus, the TEMPO will change from 250 ms to 247.9 ms.
*a Rounded values are used for the calculation results.

 Portico 5033
Portico 5033 is a processor that emulates a 5-band analog EQ developed by Rupert Neve
Designs (RND). 5033EQ features a unique tone control response. It inherited the history of
the “1073,” which was praised as one of the greatest devices developed by Mr. Rupert Neve.
Yamaha’s VCM technology has modeled the EQ to the last detail, including the input/output
transformer that was designed by Rupert Neve himself. As a result, this processor model
produces musically high-quality sound even when bypassed. Its response features unique
effects. For example, if the Lo setting is cut, the low range becomes tight, and if the Hi setting
is raised, the desired range will be boosted without hurting your ears.

 Portico 5043
3 FB button
Portico 5043, like Portico 5033, is a processor that emulates RND’s analog compressor. The
actual 5043 compressor is equipped with the same input/output transformer as that of the
5033 EQ, delivering a natural, analog-like tonality and effect. It enables you to obtain a range
of results from hard compression to natural sound, and is suitable for a broad range of audio
sources ranging from drums to vocals. The most notable feature of this model is that you can
switch the gain reduction type. You can choose either an FF (Feed-Forward) circuit type
(which is the current mainstream), or an FB (Feed-Back) circuit which was typically used in
vintage compressors. This allows you to create sounds with various characteristics as
appropriate for your applications.
Switches the gain reduction method between FF (Feed-Forward) circuit and FB (FeedBack) circuit. The button will light when FB circuit is selected.
The FF circuit is used in most contemporary compressors. This type is useful when you
want to apply consistent compression while maintaining a consistent tonal color.
The FB circuit is used in vintage compressors. This type is suitable when you want to
apply a smooth compression while adding a tonal character that is characteristic of such
devices.
4 GAIN REDUCTION meter

 U76
U76 is a processor that emulates a popular vintage compressor used in a wide range of
situations. This processor does not provide the threshold parameter that is found on
conventional compressors. Instead, the intensity of compression is determined by the
balance between the input gain and the output gain. The “All mode” setting for the RATIO
parameter allows you to create a heavily-compressed sound that is typical of this model. It
produces an aggressive tonal character with a rich addition of overtones.

7 (HIGH) BOOST knob
 EQ-1A
Sets the amount of boost applied to the frequency band specified by the HIGH
FREQUENCY knob.
EQ-1A is a processor that emulates a famous passive-type vintage EQ. It features a unique
style of operation, allowing you to individually boost and attenuate (cut) each of two frequency
ranges (high and low). Its frequency response is utterly unlike that of a conventional EQ,
producing a unique character that is distinctive of this model. The input/output circuits and
vacuum tubes produce a tonal character that is highly musical and well-balanced.

 Dynamic EQ
Dynamic EQ is a newly-developed equalizer that does not emulate any specific model of
equalizer. The sidechain has a filter that extracts the same frequency band as the EQ. This
allows you to apply EQ in the same way as you might apply a compressor or expander to a
specific frequency region, causing the EQ gain to vary dynamically only when a specific
frequency region of the input signal becomes too high or too low. For example you could use
this on a vocal sound as a de-esser, so that EQ is applied to a specific frequency band only
when sibilance or high-frequency consonants reach an unpleasant level, thus preserving a
natural sound that does not impair the original tonal character. Two full-band Dynamic EQs
are provided, enabling you to process a wide range of audio sources.

1 INPUT ADJUST
 Buss Comp 369
Used to adjust the input gain. However, the output gain is linked to change in the
opposite direction, to prevent changes in pass-through volume (the volume when
COMP IN and LIMIT IN are off). For example, if INPUT ADJUST is +5dB, the input gain
is +5dB and the output gain is -5dB.
See below for more information about how to use INPUT ADJUST.
Buss Comp 369 emulates a standard bus compressor that has been used in recording studios
and broadcasting stations since the 1980s. It produces a smooth and natural compression
that does not interfere with the expression in the source signal, in contrast with the aggressive
compression of the U76. Buss Comp 369 includes both a compressor and a limiter. You can
use both functions individually or in combination, according to your needs. Further, the rich
overtones generated by the audio transformers on the input/output circuits and the discrete
Class A amplifier add depth and unity to the sound quality.

Using an external head amp
CL5
Audio signal
If an I/O card (such as an MY16-ES64 card) supports the remote protocol of an external head
amp in the CL’s slot, you will be able to remotely control from the CL console some parameters
of the external head amp (Yamaha SB168-ES or AD8HR), such as phantom power (+48V)
on/off status, gain, and HPF.
For details on the I/O card settings, refer to the Owner’s Manual for the I/O card.
Remote signal
Connecting the CL series console to an AD8HR
To remotely control the AD8HR from the CL series console, install an MY16-ES64
EtherSound card in Slot 1 on the CL unit, then use an Ethernet cable to connect the CL unit
to the NAI48-ES. Then, connect the HA REMOTE connector on the NAI48-ES to the HA
REMOTE 1 connector on the AD8HR using an RS422 D-sub 9-pin cable. This connection
enables you to remotely control the AD8HR from the CL series console.
To transmit audio signals (input to the AD8HR) to the CL series console, connect the DIGITAL
OUT A (or B) connector on the AD8HR to the AES/EBU connector on the NAI48-ES using a
D-sub 25-pin AES/EBU cable. Signals will be sent or received between the NAI48-ES and the
CL series console via the MY16-ES64 card.
Alternatively, you can use a “daisy chain” connection to remotely control multiple AD8HR units
simultaneously. To do this, connect the AD8HR’s HA REMOTE 2 connector to the second
AD8HR’s HA REMOTE 1 connector. If you use the NAI48-ES, you can connect up to six
AD8HR units. In this case, to input AD8HR’s audio signals into the CL series console, install
two MY16-EX cards on the CL unit since each slot on the CL unit accepts up to 16 channel
signals. Then, connect each two of the third and subsequent AD8HRs to each AES/EBU
connector using a D-sub 25-pin AES/EBU cable.

MIDI functionality on the CL series console
The CL series console can use MIDI to perform the following operations.
 Program Change transmission and reception
When you execute a specific event (scene/effect library recall) on the CL series console, a
Program Change message (a number that is assigned to the event) can be transmitted to an
external device. Conversely, the corresponding event can be executed when a Program
Change message is received from an external device.
 Control Change transmission and reception
When you execute a specific event (fader, knob, or key operation) on the CL series console,
the corresponding Control Change message can be transmitted to an external device.
Conversely, events can be executed when Control Change messages are received from an
external device. This allows you to record fader and key operations on a MIDI sequencer or
other external device, and play them back later.
SETUP screen
MIDI/GPI screen
(MIDI SETUP page)
 Parameter Change (SysEx) transmission and reception
NOTE
When specific events (fader, knob, or key operations, changes in system settings or user
settings) are executed, “Parameter Change” SysEx (system exclusive) messages can be
transmitted to an external device. Conversely, events can be executed when Parameter
Changes are received from an external device.
Using this capability, CL operations can be recorded and played back on a MIDI sequencer
or other external device. In addition, changes in system and user settings can be received and
executed by another CL console.
• For details on Program Change operations, refer to the following section “Using program changes

Using control changes to control parameters
You can use MIDI Control Change messages to control specified events (fader/knob
operations, [ON] key on/off operations etc.) on the CL series console. This capability can be
used to record fader and key operations on a MIDI sequencer or other external device, and
play back this data later.
You can use Control Changes to control events in either of the following two ways.
 Using Control Changes
MIDI/GPI screen
(CONTROL CHANGE page)
This method uses typical Control Changes (control numbers 1-31, 33-95, 102-119). You can
freely assign an event to each control number.
 Using NRPN (Non Registered Parameter Number)
NOTE
Assignments to control numbers are maintained as settings for the entire system, rather than for
individual scenes.
This method uses a special type of Control Change messages called NRPN.
NRPN uses Control Change numbers 99 and 98 to specify the MSB (Most Significant Byte)
and LSB (Least Significant Byte) of the parameter number, and subsequently-transmitted
Control Change messages of Control Change number 6 (or 6 and 38) to specify the value of
that parameter.
The event assigned to each combination of MSB and LSB is pre-defined, and cannot be
changed.

About the USB memory recorder
The CL series console features a USB memory recorder function that lets you easily record
internal audio signals to a USB flash drive, or play back audio files recorded on a USB flash
drive.
As the file format for recording, the CL series console supports MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer3). For playback, it supports MP3 as well as WMA (Windows Media Audio) and AAC (MPEG4 AAC) files. However, DRM (Digital Rights Management) is not supported.
By using the USB memory recorder, the output from the STEREO bus or a MIX bus can be
recorded to a USB flash drive, or background music or sound effects saved on the USB flash
drive can be played back via an assigned input channel.
STEP
1. In the Function Access Area, press the RECORDER button.
2. Press the USB tab in the RECORDER screen.
3. Press the RECORDER INPUT L or R button.

If you plan to add DAW software, such as Steinberg Nuendo, to an audio network that includes
a CL console and I/O devices, you must use Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) driver software.
DVS works as an audio interface, making it possible to transmit signals between a DAW and
an audio network (that includes a CL series console and I/O devices). In this way, you will be
able to make multi-track recordings of live performances or use live recordings that were
made a day earlier for a virtual sound check.
This section explains the steps required when adding DAW software to an audio network.
2
Required devices and software
• CL series console and I/O devices
• A computer (Windows or Mac) equipped with an Ethernet port that supports a Giga-bit
Ethernet (GbE) network; DAW software
• A GbE-compatible network switch
• CAT5e cable
• Dante Virtual Soundcard driver software
• Dante Controller control software

Word clock settings
Setting up Dante Virtual Soundcard
In a Dante network, the master device supplies accurate word clock to other devices on the
network. If the master device is removed from the network or breaks down, another device
will automatically take over as the clock master.
To make this setting, in the Function Access Area, press the SETUP button, then the WORD
CLOCK/SLOT SETUP button to access the WORD CLOCK/SLOT SETUP window.
Install Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) and
V3.7 and earlier
Dante Controller in the computer that you
want to use for audio recording.
Make the following settings before turning
DVS on.
• Connect the GbE-compatible network port
of the computer to a GbE-compatible
network switch.
• Configure the computer to obtain an IP
address automatically
(this is the default setting).
• Set the audio format.
(Example: 48kHz, 24 bit)
• Set the Dante latency. (Use a high setting to V3.7
ensure stability when using multiple
channels.)
• In the Advanced settings, select the number
of channels to be used for recording and
playback (the default is 8 x 8).
NOTE
Please refer to the Dante Virtual Soundcard User’s Guide for more information on ASIO settings
(Windows).
Dante Accelerator settings
After mounting a Dante Accelerator card on the computer, install the Dante Accelerator Driver
and make the following settings. For information about how to install the driver, refer to the
Installation Guide included with the driver.
• Use a network cable to connect the Dante jack on the Dante Accelerator card to the Dante
network, and then connect the computer’s network port to the same network.
• Configure the computer to obtain an IP address automatically (this is the default setting).
NOTE
For more information about selecting a computer for remote control from a CL series console,
refer to “Specifying DVS or Dante Accelerator” in “When setup method selection button =
SPECIFIED IP ADDRESS” (page 202).

Recorder
Setting up Dante Controller
Setting up DAW software
Connect the network port of the computer to a GbE-compatible network switch. Configure the
computer to obtain an IP address automatically (this is the default setting).
You must make the following settings for Dante Controller.
• For multi-track recording, patch audio signals from the I/O device to DVS or the Dante
Accelerator card.
• For virtual sound check: Patch audio signals in such a way that they will be output from the
computer to the Dante audio network, then routed to the channels on the CL console.
(page 168).
The following example shows Dante Controller settings for when channels 1-16 of an I/O
device are patched to DVS.
You must make driver settings in your DAW software. You must make driver settings in your
DAW software. In the device setting window, select “Dante Virtual Sound Card-ASIO” (“Dante”
for Mac) or “Yamaha AIC128-D” as the sound card (or audio driver) used for input/output.
Some DAW software may require internal patching for the driver and the DAW software. For
more information, refer to the DAW software manual.
 Setting up Nuendo Live
If you install the “Yamaha Console Extension” software for linking Nuendo Live to a console,
and then start up Nuendo Live and create a new project, tracks corresponding to the number
of channels specified in DVS will be created automatically, and the channel names and colors
from the CL series console will automatically be assigned as each track name.
Audio recording and playback
After you have made driver settings in your DAW software, you can record and play back
audio.
For multi-track recording, set the input ports for the tracks of the DAW software to the ports
that receive audio signals from the I/O devices.
For a virtual sound check, you must route recorded audio signals to the input channels on the
CL console. To do so, use Dante Controller to patch the signals so that the signals will be
output from the DAW software to DANTE 1-64 on the CL console. It may be convenient for you
later if you store two sets of the DANTE INPUT PATCH settings in the library: one set for
routing audio signals from the I/O devices, and another set for routing audio signals from DAW
software. In this way, you will be able to switch between patch settings without starting Dante
Controller. In addition, you will be able to patch a specific channel (such as a vocal) to the I/
O device to monitor during a virtual sound check.
In this case, you’ll need to switch the DANTE INPUT PATCH settings of the CL series console
depending on whether you’re performing multitrack recording or multitrack playback. If you’ve
saved these different sets of settings in the DANTE INPUT PATCH LIBRARY (page 168),
you’ll be able to switch between them conveniently.
NOTE
Please refer to the Dante Controller manual for more information about operations and settings
of the Dante Controller.

Custom fader bank
Groups that organize channels routed to the top-panel faders are called “fader banks.”
There are input and output channel banks, as well as custom fader banks. Custom fader
banks enable you to select various combinations of channels, regardless of channel types.
This section explains how to set up a custom fader bank.

Console Lock
Custom fader bank settings can be stored/recalled for individual scenes.
Custom fader bank settings are stored in scene data in separate regions for each model.
You can temporarily prohibit console operations in order to prevent unwanted operation. This
setting disables operations of the panel, so that controllers cannot be operated by an
accidental touch or by an unauthorized third party while the operator is taking a break.
If a password is set for the currently logged-in user, that password will be used for the Console
Lock function. When the Console Lock function is enabled, the CONSOLE LOCK screen will
appear and all controllers (excluding the MONITOR LEVEL knob) will become inoperable.

NOTE
Custom fader bank settings differ between models, and are not compatible. For example, custom
fader bank settings included in scenes stored in CL5 cannot be reproduced if that same scene is
recalled in CL3 or CL1. You must create and store custom fader bank settings in CL3 and CL1.
NOTE
Precautions for when Loading Console Data
• If you have forgotten the password, refer to “Initializing the unit to factory default settings”
(page 265).
• The Guest cannot set a password.
• Even while the console is locked, control from an external device via MIDI or CL Editor will still
operate as usual.
In V2.0 and later, custom fader bank settings are not only included in user settings, but in
scene data as well. The custom fader bank settings that are called up vary depending on the
logged-in user, the type of the loaded data, and the version. Please note the following points:
• If you load console data of the ALL type as Administrator, the custom fader bank settings
for the saved Administrator are called up.
If you load ALL data as Guest or another user, the custom fader bank settings for the saved
current scene are called up.
• If you load ALL data that was saved in CL V1.70 or earlier, since scenes do not include
custom fader bank settings, the custom fader bank settings for the current scene when the
load was performed are applied to all scenes. Therefore, before loading ALL data, we
recommend that you either change users to set the custom fader bank to the desired
setting, or that you enable Recall Safe for the custom fader bank.

Word clock and slot settings
Recovering after overcurrent at the USB port
Even if the connection with the USB device was stopped because an overcurrent condition
occurred at the USB port, it is possible to use the USB device again without turning the
console power off and back on.
“Word clock” refers to the clock that provides the basis of timing for digital audio signal
processing. To send and receive digital audio signals between devices, those devices must
be synchronized to the same word clock. If digital audio signals are transferred in an
unsynchronized state, the data may not be transmitted or received correctly, and noise may
be present in the signal, even if the sampling rates are the same.
Specifically, you must first decide which device will transmit the reference word clock for the
entire system (the word clock master), and then set the remaining devices (the word clock
slaves) so that they synchronize to the word clock master.
If you wish to use the CL series console as a word clock slave that is synchronized to the word
clock supplied from an external device, you must specify the appropriate clock source (the
port through which the word clock is obtained).
This section explains how to select the clock source that the CL series console will use.
STEP
1. In the Function Access Area, press the SETUP button.
2. In the SYSTEM SETUP field of the SETUP screen, press the WORD CLOCK/SLOT
SETUP button.
3. In the MASTER CLOCK SELECT field of the WORD CLOCK/SLOT SETUP window,
select a clock source.
4. Press the “x” symbol located in the upper right to close the window.
 Recovery procedure
After removing the cause of the overcurrent at the USB port, press the location that shows
“USB REMOUNT” at the FORMAT button of the SAVE/LOAD window.
Remount function to USB flash drives
If USB flash drive is not mounted, the FORMAT button will become a USB REMOUNT button.
Press this button to mount a USB flash drive. Use this button if a USB flash drive is not
recognized after it has been removed and reinserted.

NOTE
With CL V2.03 and later, if you initialize the console to factory settings, the default value for the

 MASTER CLOCK SELECT field
Indicates the status of synchronization with the master clock for each clock source. Each
indicator is explained below:
1 Master clock frequency display
Indicates the frequency (44.1 kHz or 48 kHz) of the currently-selected master clock. If
the unit is not synching to the master clock, “UNLOCK” will appear.
• LOCKED (light blue)
Indicates that a clock synchronized with the selected clock source is being input. If an
external device is connected to the corresponding connector or slot, input/output is
occurring properly between that device and the CL series console. If the sampling
frequency is close, this status may be displayed even if not synchronized.
NOTE
• If sample rate pull-up/down has been specified in the Dante
Controller application, this area indicates the change in the
sample rate as a percentage, such as -4.0%, -0.1%, +0.1%, and
+4.1667%.
• To change the master clock when sample rate pull-up/down has been specified, disable the pullup/down in the Dante Controller, change the master clock, then specify pull-up/down again.
• LOCKED, BUT NOT SYNC’ED (yellow)
A valid clock is being input, but is not synchronized with the selected clock source. If an
external device is connected to the corresponding connector, input/output cannot
occur correctly between that device and the CL series console.
2 Master clock select buttons
• SRC ON (green)
This is a special status that applies only to SLOT1-3. It indicates that SCR (Sample Rate
Converter) is enabled for the corresponding channel. This means that even if the signal
is not synchronized, normal input/output with the CL series console is occurring.
Use the buttons to select the clock source that you want to use as the word clock master
from the following options:
• INT 48 k
• INT 44.1 k
The CL console internal clock (sampling rate 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz) will be the clock
source.
• UNLOCKED (red)
A valid clock is not being input. If an external device is connected to the corresponding
connector, input/output cannot occur correctly between that device and the CL series
console.
• WORD CLOCK IN
The word clock supplied from the WORD CLOCK IN jack on the rear panel of the console
will be used as the clock source.
238
Reference Manual
Setup
Using cascade connections
• UNKNOWN (black)
This indicates that the clock status cannot be detected because no external device is
connected or because there is no valid clock input. You will be able to select this
connector/slot, but successful synchronization cannot occur until a valid connection is
established.
Using multiple CL series consoles, or a CL console and an external mixing console (such as
a Yamaha PM5D) in a cascade connection enables buses to be shared among the devices.
This can be convenient if you want to use an external mixer to increase the number of inputs.
This section explains cascade connections and operation, using an example in which two CL
units are connected in a cascade configuration.
NOTE
• If the indicator for the selected clock does not turn light blue, make sure that the external device
is correctly connected, and that the external device is set to transmit clock data.
• Noise may occur at the output jacks when the word clock setting is changed. To protect your
speaker system, be sure to turn down the power amp volume before changing the word clock
setting.
• If you attempt to select a channel (for which SRC is on) as the word clock source, a message will
appear, warning you that the sampling rate converter will be disabled.
About cascade connections
To cascade two CL series consoles, you must first install digital I/O cards in the appropriate
slots, and connect the output ports of the sending unit (the cascade slave) to the input ports
of the receiving unit (the cascade master).
The following illustration shows an example in which three eight-channel digital I/O cards for
each unit are installed in the cascade slave CL unit and in the cascade master CL unit. The
DIGITAL OUT jacks of the sending unit are connected to the DIGITAL IN jacks of the receiving
unit.
 SLOT SETUP field
This field enables you to make various settings related to the MY slots on the rear panel of the

In this example, up to twenty four buses chosen from MIX bus 1-24, MATRIX bus 1-8,
STEREO bus (L/R), MONO (C) bus, and CUE bus (L/R) can be shared, and the mixed signals
transmitted from the cascade master CL unit. (If you use three 16-ch digital I/O cards, all
buses can be shared among the devices.) When the required settings are made for the
cascade slave and for the cascade master, the bus signals of the cascade slave will be sent
via the slot to the buses of the cascade master, and the combined signals of both buses will
be output from the cascade master. If the Cascade Link function is enabled, the specified
operations or parameter changes performed on either CL series console will be followed by
the other CL console.
You must specify bus assignments for each slot or channel on each CL unit. The procedure
below is given separately for the cascade slave and the cascade master.

• If you are making a cascade connection between the CL unit and the PM5D, you can use the CL
unit as the cascade slave by setting the PM5D’s CASCADE IN PORT SELECT to a slot. However,
only the audio signals will be cascaded, and the control signals cannot be linked.
• You can also use an AD/DA card to make cascade connections with an analog mixer.
• There is no limit to the number of units that can be cascade-connected, but the signal delay at

Setting the Dante audio network latency
An appropriate latency setting for signals transmitted over a Dante audio network varies
depending on the network connection method and size. This section explains how to set an
appropriate latency setting depending on the connection method of Dante-enabled devices
that are connected to the CL series console.
DANTE SETUP window (SETUP page)
The button you switched is shown in red.
When the Dante audio network settings have been applied, the button you selected will return
to its original appearance.
 Relationship between the switches and the number of hops
An appropriate latency setting on a Dante audio network varies depending on the number of
hops in the network. One hop is the step from one router (switch) to the next. You count the
number of hops starting from the master device to the most distant device (assuming that all
devices are connected in series).
Switches mean switching hubs as well as the switches that are built into CL series consoles
and I/O devices. Set the latency value based on the number of hops. The following table
shows typical latency settings based on the number of hops.
Number of hops
Latency (ms)
Up to 3
0.25
Up to 5
0.5
Up to 10
1.0
Up to 20
2.0
21 or more (or if a problem occurs)
5.0
NOTE
• Depending on network conditions, you may want to raise the latency value even if the number of
hops is small.
• If a problem occurs, select 5.0 ms so that you will be able to identify whether the latency setting
is the cause of the problem.
NOTE
• If you change the SECONDARY PORT, you must also change the method of connection between
the CL series console and the I/O devices. For example if the connections used for the
REDUNDANT setting are left as they are when you change the setting to DAISY CHAIN, it will
become impossible to send and receive audio. Be sure to disconnect the cables before you
change the setting.
• The CONSOLE ID and SECONDARY PORT settings will not be changed even if you initialize the
CL series console.
• When the CONSOLE ID is OFF or is set to 2, 3, or 4 for a CL series console, the console’s BIT/
LATENCY will not change even if the BIT/LATENCY is changed in the DANTE SETUP window
for the CL series console within a network for which the CONSOLE ID is set to 1.

Reference Manual
Setup
NOTE
 When the setup method select button is DVS or MANUAL
• If there is one I/O device, set the I/O device’s UNIT ID to “1.”
• If multiple devices are connected, assign the ID numbers so that there is no conflict between
devices.
• For devices other than the R series, it is possible for devices of differing models to be assigned
to the same ID as an R series unit or the same ID as a different model of device. However, since
the I/O device input/output port screen shows the UNIT ID, this will make it difficult to distinguish
between the units, so we recommend that whenever possible, you avoid allowing the ID numbers
to overlap.
• If you have a device whose UNIT ID or device label cannot be changed from its panel or its edit
screen etc. (such as the Dante-MY16-AUD card or Dante Accelerator), and you want to use that
device as a SUPPORTED DEVICE, you must change its device label via Dante Controller.
• An I/O device will be recognized as a SUPPORTED DEVICE if you assign the device label as
follows.
Y###-**********
# is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A to F (000 FFF)
* indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or - (hyphen)
may be used)
• If you are controlling the CL series console from an R series unit, we recommend that you set the
R unit’s START UP MODE to “REFRESH.” Operation will be safer with the “REFRESH” setting,
since mute will be cleared after synchronization has been completed with CL units whose system
setting for REMOTE HA ASSIGN is set to “WITH RECALL.”
With the “RESUME” setting, mute will be cleared and the unit will start operating with the settings
that were backed up by the R series unit itself, which could allow unexpected audio to be output.
• A single CL series console can control the HA of up to eight R series units.
If nine or more R series units are connected, you can either divide the HA control between
multiple CL series consoles, or you can omit specifying REMOTE HA ASSIGN for the R series
units whose HA does not need to be controlled, and use them with START UP MODE set to
“RESUME.”

Flash x2
An abnormality has occurred
on the circuit connected to the
SECONDARY connector
during redundant network
operation.
The rear panel GPI (General Purpose Interface) connector can be used as an input/output
connector. This connector provides five GPI IN ports and five GPI OUT ports. For example
you can use an external switch to control internal parameters of the CL series console or to
switch scenes. Conversely, operations or scene changes performed on the CL series console
can send control signals to an external device.
For details on how to send control signals to an external device when you switch scenes, refer
to “Outputting a control signal to an external device in tandem with scene recall (GPI OUT)”
(page 105).
Check the circuit connected to the
SECONDARY connector.
 Information messages
The indicators will remain lit /blinking cyclically to report the status.
If the orange [SYNC] indicator is not lit, the unit is operating correctly.
If the green [SYNC] indicator is not lit, the device’s word clock is not defined.

Meaning
Using GPI IN
You can use the GPI IN ports of the GPI connector to control the parameters of the CL series
console from an external device. For example, you could use an external switch to turn the CL
series console’s Talkback on/off, operate the Tap Tempo function, or switch scenes.
Possible solution
Syncing the Dante network
Please wait until started has
completed or until the unit has
finished synchronization. It may
take up to 45 seconds for
completion.
Waiting to receive setting data
Use REMOTE HA ASSIGN in the
system to sync with a console or
R Remote set to “WITH RECALL.”
For an R series console with the
START UP MODE set to
REFRESH, after startup both
input and output are muted until
the setting data is received.
For a single R series console, do
not set “WITH RECALL” from
multiple consoles.

 COMPRESSOR
 EXPANDER
The COMP processor attenuates signals above a specified THRESHOLD by a specified
RATIO.
The COMP processor can also be used as a limiter, which, with a RATIO of ∞:1, reduces the
level to the threshold. This means that the limiter's output level never actually exceeds the
threshold.
An expander attenuates signals below a specified THRESHOLD by a specified RATIO.

Output Level
The hard and soft companders combine the effects of the compressor, expander and limiter.
THRESHOLD
WIDTH
0dB
Input Level
The companders function differently at the following levels:
1 0 dB and higher ..................................Functions as a limiter.
2 Exceeding the threshold ....................Functions as a compressor.
3 Below the threshold and width ..........Functions as an expander.
The hard compander has an expansion ratio of 5:1, while the soft compander has an
expansion ratio of 1.5:1. The expander is essentially turned off when the width is set to
maximum. The compressor has a fixed knee setting of 2.
* The gain is automatically adjusted according to the ratio and threshold values, and can be increased by up to 18 dB.
* The OUT GAIN parameter enables you to compensate for the overall level change caused by the compression and
expansion processes.

This section explains the format of the data that the CL series
is able to understand, send, and receive.
STATUS
DATA
1 CHANNEL MESSAGE

Reception
These messages are echoed to MIDI OUT if [OTHER COMMAND ECHO] is ON.
They are received if [Rx CH] matches, and used to control effects.

= paramWidth-add * paramSteps;
= paramSteps * add + mod / 2;
(1) If the assigned parameter has fewer than 128 steps
paramWidth = 128; rxValue = Control value;
(2) If the assigned parameter has 128 or more but less than 16,384 steps
paramWidth = 16384;
(2-1) When High and Low data is received
rxValue = Control value(High) * 128 + Control value(Low);
(2-2) When only Low data is received
rxValue = (curValue & 16256) + Control value(Low);
1.3 CONTROL CHANGE
(Bn)
Two types of CONTROL CHANGE can be transmitted and received; [NRPN]
(Non-Registered Parameter Numbers) and freely-assigned [TABLE] (1CH x 110)
messages. Select either [TABLE] or [NRPN].
Reception
These messages are echoed to MIDI OUT if [CONTROL CHANGE ECHO] is ON.
If [TABLE] is selected, these messages are received when [CONTROL CHANGE Rx]
is ON and [Rx CH] matches, and will control parameters according to the settings
of the [CONTROL CHANGE EVENT LIST]. For the parameters that can be
assigned, refer to “Parameters That Can Be Assigned to Control Changes”
(page 23).
If [NRPN] is selected, these messages are received when [CONTROL CHANGE Rx]
is ON and the [Rx CH] matches; the four messages NRPN control number (62h,
63h) and DATA ENTRY control number (06h, 26h) are used to control the
specified parameter.
Transmission
If [TABLE] is selected, and if [CONTROL CHANGE Tx] is ON when you operate a
parameter that is assigned in the [CONTROL CHANGE EVENT LIST], these
messages will be transmitted on the [Tx CH] channel. For the parameters that can
be assigned, refer to “Parameters That Can Be Assigned to Control Changes”
(page 23).
If [NRPN] is selected, and if [CONTROL CHANGE Tx] is ON when you operate a
specified parameter, the four messages NRPN control number (62h, 63h) and
DATA ENTRY control number (06h, 26h) are transmitted on the [Tx CH] channel.
For the parameters that can be assigned, refer to “Parameters That Can Be
Assigned to Control Changes” (page 23).
CONTROL CHANGE messages are not used for transmission to CL Editor because
there is no guarantee that the contents of the assignment tables will match.
(PARAMETER CHANGE messages are always used.)
CONTROL CHANGE numbers 0 and 32 are for selecting banks.

rxValue = Control value(High) * 128 + (curValue & 127);
(3) If the assigned parameter has 16,384 or more but less than 2,097,152
steps
paramWidth = 2097152;
(3-1) When High, Middle, and Low data is received
rxValue = Control value(High) * 16384 + Control value(Middle) * 128 + Control value(Low);
(3-2) When only Low data is received
rxValue = (curValue & 2097024) + Control value(Low);
(3-3) When only Middle data is received
rxValue = (curValue & 2080895) + Control value(Middle) * 128;
(3-4) When only High data is received
rxValue = (curValue & 16383) + Control value(High) * 16384;
(3-5) When only Middle and Low data is received
rxValue = (curValue & 2080768) + Control value(Middle) * 128 + Control value(Low);
(3-6) When only High and Low data is received
rxValue = (curValue & 16256) + Control value(High) * 16384 + Control value(Low);
1.4 PROGRAM CHANGE
(Cn)
Reception
If [PROGRAM CHANGE ECHO] is ON, bank select messages will also be echoed
from MIDI OUT.
If SINGLE CH is selected, these messages are received if [PROGRAM CHANGE Rx]
is ON and the [Rx CH] matches. However if [OMNI] is ON, these messages are
received regardless of the channel. When these messages are received, scene
memory, effect library and premium rack library are recalled according to the
settings of the [PROGRAM CHANGE EVENT LIST].
Transmission
If [PROGRAM CHANGE Tx] is ON, these messages are transmitted according to
the [PROGRAM CHANGE Table] settings when scene memory, effect library and
premium rack library are recalled.
If SINGLE CH is selected, these messages are transmitted on the [Tx CH] channel.
If the recalled scene memory, effect library and premium rack library have been
assigned to more than one PROGRAM NUMBER, the lowest-numbered
PROGRAM NUMBER for each MIDI channel will be transmitted.
PROGRAM CHANGE messages are not used for transmission to CL Editor because
there is no guarantee that the contents of the assignment tables will match.
(PARAMETER CHANGE messages are always used.)
You can choose either MULTI MIDI CH or SINGLE CH.
If SINGLE is selected
You can choose the Rx CH, OMNI CH, and Tx CH.
You can choose whether a bank select message will be added.
A bank of up to 16 can be specified.
If MULTI is selected
The Rx and Tx channels will be the same.
The assignment table will use the settings for each MIDI channel. Bank select
messages will not be added.
You can make settings for up to sixteen MIDI channels.

Data is lost when you write to the preset library.
The unique header (Model ID) identifies whether the device is a CL series.
To calculate the check sum, add the bytes starting with the byte after BYTE
COUNT (LOW) and ending with the byte before CHECK SUM, take the binary
complement, and set bit 7 to 0.
CHECK SUM = (-sum)&0x7F
Bulk Dumps can be received at any time, and can be transmitted at any time
when a Bulk Dump Request is received.
A Bulk Dump is transmitted on the [Rx CH] channel in response to a Bulk Dump
Request.

REQUEST is received, the current value of the specified parameter will be
transmitted as a PARAMETER CHANGE with its Device Number as the [Rx CH].
Transmission
If [PARAMETER CHANGE Tx] is ON, and you edit a parameter for which
CONTROL CHANGE transmission has not been enabled, a PARAMETER CHANGE
will be transmitted with the [Tx CH] as its device number.

4.9.1 Format (PARAMETER CHANGE)
When transmission is enabled by receiving Request for Level Meter, the
corresponding metering data will be sent in every 50 millisecond for 10 seconds.
If metering information is expected to be continuously sent, Request is needed to
be sent in at least every 10 seconds.
Reception
The data will be echoed when [PARAMETER CHANGE ECHO] is on.
Transmission
When transmission is enabled by receiving Request, the corresponding metering
data will be sent in constant interval for a given period of time (The interval and
time will vary depending on devices).
When rebooted or port setting is changed, the transmission will be disabled.
When [PARAMETER CHANGE ECHO] is on, the message will be sent as it is.
