PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical
shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/Power cord
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the device. The required voltage is
printed on the name plate of the device.
• Use only the included power cord. Use only the specified power supply
(PW800W), if you use an external power supply. If you intend to use the device
in an area other than in the one you purchased, the included power cord may not
be compatible. Please check with your Yamaha dealer.
• Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and
do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on
it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything
over it.
• Be sure to connect to an appropriate outlet with a protective grounding
connection. Improper grounding can result in electrical shock.
Do not open
• Do not open the device or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify
them in any way. The device contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should
appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected
by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not expose the device to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions,
or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings.
If any liquid such as water seeps into the device, turn off the power immediately
and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the device inspected
by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
If you notice any abnormality
• If the power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden
loss of sound during use of the device, or if any unusual smells or smoke
should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch,
disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and have the device inspected by
qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• If this device power supply should be dropped or damaged, immediately turn off
the power switch, disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and have the
device inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the device or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/Power cord
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the device is not to be used for
extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
• Do not expose the device to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat
(such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent
the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components.
• When removing the electric plug from the device or an outlet, always hold the
plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• Do not place the device in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall
over.
Location
• When transporting or moving the device, always use two or more people.
Attempting to lift the device by yourself may damage your back, result in other
injury, or cause damage to the device itself.
• When transporting or moving the device, do not hold the display.
• Before moving the device, remove all connected cables.
• When setting up the device, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily
accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the
power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power
switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum
level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug
the power cord from the wall AC outlet.
• Avoid setting all equalizer controls and faders to their maximum. Depending on
the condition of the connected devices, doing so may cause feedback and may
damage the speakers.

M7CL Owner’s Manual
• Do not block the vents. This device has ventilation holes at the rear to prevent
the internal temperature from becoming too high. In particular, do not place the
device on its side or upside down. Inadequate ventilation can result in
overheating, possibly causing damage to the device(s), or even fire.
• Do not use the device in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment, mobile
phone, or other electric devices. Doing so may result in noise, both in the device
itself and in the TV or radio next to it.
• Do not place the device in a location where it may come into contact with
corrosive gases or salt air. Doing so may result in malfunction.
Connections
• Before connecting the device to other devices, turn off the power for all devices.
Before turning the power on or off for all devices, set all volume levels to
minimum.

Handling caution
Backup battery
• When turning on the AC power in your audio system, always turn on the power
amplifier LAST, to avoid speaker damage. When turning the power off, the power
amplifier should be turned off FIRST for the same reason.
• Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in ambient
temperature—when the device is moved from one location to another, or air
conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the device while
condensation is present can cause damage. If there is reason to believe that
condensation might have occurred, leave the device for several hours without
turning on the power until the condensation has completely dried out.
• Do not insert your fingers or hands in any gaps or openings on the device
(vents).
• Avoid inserting or dropping foreign objects (paper, plastic, metal, etc.) into any
gaps or openings on the device (vents) If this happens, turn off the power
immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the
device inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• This device has a built-in backup battery that maintains data in internal memory
even when the device’s power is switched off. The backup battery will eventually
become depleted, however, and when that happens the contents of the internal
memory will be lost.* To prevent loss of data be sure to replace the backup
battery before it becomes fully depleted. When the backup battery is running
low, the LCD display indicates “Low Battery!” when you starting up the system,
(In this case, the Battery field indicates “LOW” or “NO” in the SETUP screen.)
immediately save the data to a USB storage device, then have qualified Yamaha
service personnel replace the backup battery. The average life of the internal
backup battery is approximately 5 years, depending on operating conditions.
* Data items maintained in the internal memory by the backup battery are as
follows:
• Current scene parameters and number.
• Library data.
• Do not use the device or headphones for a long period of time at a high or
uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you
experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
• Do not rest your weight on the device or place heavy objects on it, and avoid use
excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• Do not apply oil, grease, or contact cleaner to the faders. Doing so may cause
problems with electrical contact or fader motion.
XLR-type connectors are wired as follows (IEC60268 standard): pin 1: ground, pin 2: hot (+), and pin 3: cold (-).
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the device, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the device is not in use.
The performance of components with moving contacts, such as switches, volume controls, and connectors, deteriorates over time. Consult qualifi ed Yamaha service
personnel about replacing defective components.

manual before you begin using the product. After you have read the manual, keep it in a safe
place.
An overview of the M7CL
The M7CL is a digital mixing console with the following features.
■ A mixing system that delivers
both cutting-edge digital
technology and analog-style operation
The M7CL is a full-digital mixing console containing the
latest digital technology, designed for installed systems or
SR applications. 24-bit linear AD/DA converters are used
to deliver up to 108 dB of dynamic range and amazing
sound quality.
The M7CL features 32 (M7CL-32 model) or 48 (M7CL48 model) monaural INPUT channels, and four stereo ST
IN channels. The M7CL-48ES model features EtherSound
input channels and eight monaural INPUT channels
(OMNI IN).
As output channels, it provides 16 MIX channels, eight
MATRIX channels, a STEREO channel, and a MONO
channel. L/C/R three-channel output using the STEREO/
MONO channels is also supported.
The user interface has been completely redesigned for
simple and intuitive operation.
A dedicated channel strip with fader, cue, and on/off control is provided for all frequently-used input channels and
the STEREO/MONO channels. This mixer can be comfortably operated even by users who are new to digital
consoles.
The SELECTED CHANNEL section located at the left of
the display lets you use the knobs to control the main
parameters (gain, EQ, dynamics threshold, bus send levels, etc.) for the particular channel on which you’re focusing. This section can be operated just like a module on an
analog mixer.
In the center of the top panel is located the newly developed Centralogic section, which lets you control eight
channels at once. You can control fader, cue, and on/off
settings for the eight channels or DCA groups recalled to
this section by pressing a single key. The display is a touch
screen. You can turn functions on/off or select items simply by touching buttons or knobs in the screen.
Mix parameter settings, including head amp gain and
phantom power for input channels, can be stored and
recalled as “scenes.” All faders on the panel are motorized
moving faders, so that when you recall a scene, the previous fader locations are reproduced immediately.
■ Effects and graphic EQ that can be
patched into a desired signal path
High-quality multi-effect processors are built in, with up
to four available simultaneously. Effects such as reverb,
delay, multiband compression, and various modulation
effects can be routed via internal buses or inserted into the
desired channel. 31-band graphic EQ and a newly developed Flex15GEQ are also provided, and can be inserted in
any channel or output.
The Flex15GEQ allows you to adjust the gain for any fifteen of the thirty-one bands.
Since two GEQ units can be mounted in the same rack, a
total of up to sixteen GEQ units can be used simultaneously. To use effects or graphic EQ, you mount them in
the eight virtual racks shown in the touch screen. The currently-mounted modules can be seen at a glance, and you
can switch modules and change input/output patching in
an intuitive manner.

An overview of the M7CL
■ Cascade connections
in the digital domain
A second M7CL unit or a digital mixer such as the
Yamaha PM5D connected via a digital I/O card installed
in a slot can be cascade-connected in the digital domain.
Of the MIX buses, MATRIX buses, STEREO/MONO
buses, and CUE bus, up to twenty-four buses can be cascaded individually.
The rear panel provides three slots in which separately
sold mini-YGDAI cards can be installed. AD cards, DA
cards, or digital I/O cards can be installed in these slots to
add inputs and outputs. If an external head amp unit (such
as the Yamaha AD8HR) that supports a special protocol is
connected to the REMOTE connector, the phantom power
and gain settings of the external head amp can also be
remotely controlled from the M7CL.
■ Security functions that can be
specified at user-level or system-level
■ Propagation via SB168-ES
The available functionality can be restricted for users
other than the administrator, with three levels of security;
Administrator, Guest, and User. Passwords can be specified for the administrator and users, preventing important
settings from being changed accidentally.
Information specific to each user (user level, system settings, and user-defined key settings) can be stored on a
USB storage device as a “user authentication key.” By
loading your own user authentication key from a USB
storage device, you can instantly set up the ideal operating
environment for yourself.

M7CL Owner’s Manual
Using the Stage Box SB168-ES or similar product enables
you to set up remote inputs and outputs away from the
console, such as on stage, for an improved system design
that features more flexible cabling. Using the SB168-ES
along with the M7CL-48ES significantly facilitates necessary setups. You can easily set the SB168-ES’s DIP
switches and use the STAGE BOX SETUP function via
the console’s EXT-HA field to quickly set up head amp
remote control, audio patches, etc.

The M7CL’s channel structure
The M7CL’s channel structure
The M7CL provides the following input channels and output channels.
● MATRIX channels
■ Input channels
This section processes an input signal and sends it to various buses (STEREO, MONO, MIX, MATRIX). There are
two types of input channel, as follows.
● INPUT channels
These channels are used to process monaural signals. By
default, the input signals from monaural analog INPUT
jacks (on the M7CL-32 and M7CL-48 models) or input
signals from the EtherSound connector (on the M7CL48ES model) are assigned to these channels.
● ST IN channels
These channels are used to process stereo signals. By
default, the input signals from EFFECT RETURN 1–4 are
assigned to these channels.
Signal assignments to the input channels can be changed
as desired.
These channels process the signals that are sent from input
channels, MIX channels, STEREO channel, and MONO
channel to the MATRIX buses, and send them from the
output ports. Using the STEREO and MONO buses, different combinations of signals and mix balances can be
sent out from the M7CL.
When the M7CL is in the default state, the following output ports are assigned.
• M7CL-32/48 port assignment
MATRIX channels 1/2
OMNI OUT jacks 13/14
MATRIX channels 1–8
Slot 3 output channels 1–8, 9–16
• M7CL-48ES port assignment
MATRIX channels 1–8
Slot 3 output channels 1–8, 9–16
MATRIX channels 1–6
EtherSound output channels 17–22
MATRIX channels 1–4
OMNI OUT 1–4
● STEREO channel / MONO channel
■ Output channels
This section mixes the signals sent from input channels
etc., and sends them to the corresponding output ports or
output buses. There are three types of output channel, as
follows.
● MIX channels
These channels process the signals sent from input channels to the MIX buses, and send them from the output
ports. These are used mainly to send signals to the monitor
system or to external effects. The signals of MIX channels
1–16 can also be sent to the STEREO bus, MONO bus, or
MATRIX buses.
When the M7CL is in the default state, the following output ports are assigned.
These channels process the signals that are sent from the
input channels or MIX channels, and send them to the corresponding output port. These channels are used as the
main stereo output and monaural output.
The STEREO channel and MONO channel can be used
either to output independent signals, or for three-channel
L/C/R playback.
When the M7CL is in the default state, the following output ports are assigned.

About the MIX bus types (VARI / FIXED) • About word clock • Conventions in this manual
About the MIX bus types (VARI / FIXED)
● VARI
● FIXED
This type allows the send level of the signal sent from the
input channels to the MIX bus to be varied. The point at
which the signal is sent from the input channel to a VARI
type MIX bus can be chosen from before the EQ, before
the fader, or after the [ON] key (after the fader). This type
is used mainly for sending the signal to a monitor system
or external effect.
With this type, the send level of the signal sent from the
input channels to the MIX bus is fixed to unity (0 dB). The
signal sent from an input channel to a FIXED type MIX
bus is taken from immediately after the [ON] key (after
the fader). This type is used mainly when you want to distribute signals to an external device at the same mix balance as the STEREO/MONO buses.
1
Introduction
The sixteen MIX buses provided on the M7CL can be assigned either as VARI or FIXED types in
pairs of adjacent odd-numbered/even-numbered buses (→ p. 234). Each type has the following
characteristics.
About word clock
“Word clock” refers to the clock that provides the basis of timing for digital audio signal processing.
Normally, one device transmits a reference word clock signal, and the other devices receive this
word clock signal and synchronize to it.
In order to transmit or receive digital audio signals to or from an external device via a digital I/O
card installed in a slot of the M7CL or EtherSound jacks of the M7CL-48ES. The word clock must
be synchronized between the devices. Be aware that if the word clock is not synchronized, the
signal will not be sent correctly, or there may be unpleasant noise. (For details on synchronizing
the M7CL’s word clock with an external device → p. 230).
Conventions in this manual
In this manual, switch-type controls on the panel are called “keys.” Of the control knobs on the
panel, those that turn from a minimum value to a maximum value are called “knobs,” while those
that turn endlessly are called “encoders.”
Controls located on the panel are enclosed in square
brackets [ ] (e.g., [CUE] key) in order to distinguish them
from the virtual buttons and knobs displayed in the screen.
For some controls, the name of the section is given before
the [ ] (e.g., SCENE MEMORY [STORE] key).
Whenever there is a difference between the M7CL-32
model and the M7CL-48 model, specifications that apply
only to the M7CL-48 model are enclosed in curly brackets
{ } (e.g., INPUT jacks 1–32 {1–48}).

Connections and setup
Connecting SB168-ES units to the M7CL-48ES
using the STAGE BOX SETUP function
This section describes how to connect the SB168-ES units to the M7CL-48ES and set up the system using the STAGE BOX SETUP function. You can use either a daisy chain connection or ring
connection.
● Daisy chain characteristics
● Ring connection characteristics
• Three daisy-chained SB168-ES units provide a total of
48 input channels and 24 output channels.
• If a connection is broken in a daisy chain network, the
signal flow is interrupted at that point and no signal will
be transferred beyond that point.
• The EtherSound specifications limit the total number of
input and output channels to 64 in this type of network.
Three daisy-chained SB168-ES units provide a total of
48 input channels and 16 output channels.
• A problem in the network, such as a disconnected cable,
will not affect operation of the entire network.

Setup items required when you start up the M7CL for the first time
Setup items required when you start up the M7CL for the first time
This section explains the setup required when starting up the M7CL for the first time. We will also
discuss basic operations for sending an input channel signal out from the STEREO bus so that
you can check the connections.
If you have connected the SB168-ES units to the M7CL-48ES via the Auto Configure function,
setup item “Word clock connections and settings” is now complete. Follow the steps in the
“Restoring the current scene to the default state” section, then proceed to setup item “Making HA
(Head Amp) gain settings” (→ p. 51).
Restoring the current scene to
the default state
HINT
• Be aware that when scene number “000” is loaded, the input
patch, output patch, internal effect, and HA (Head Amp) settings will also return to their default state.
Turn on the power of the M7CL, and recall (load) the
default setting scene (scene number 000).
NOTE
• In the procedure described here, you are asked to recall this
default setting scene so that the remaining step in this chapter
can be performed appropriately. In actual operation, there is
no need to recall the default setting scene each time.
1 Turn on the power of the M7CL.
When you turn on the power of the M7CL, you should
first power-on the M7CL, and then power-on your
power amp and monitor system. (When turning the
power off, follow the opposite order.)
HINT
• If a PW800W power supply is connected to the M7CL, the
power will turn on regardless of whether you first turn on the
POWER switch of the M7CL or of the PW800W.
2 Use the top panel SCENE MEMORY [▲]/[▼]
keys to make scene number “000” appear
in the SCENE field in the function access
area of the display.
Word clock connections and
settings
“Word clock” refers to the clock data that provides the
basis of timing for digital audio signal processing.
If you connect external equipment such as a DAW system
or HDR (Hard Disk Recorder) to a digital I/O card
installed in slot 1–3, this equipment must be synchronized
to the same word clock as the M7CL in order for digital
audio signals to be transferred between the M7CL and the
external equipment. To do so, set one device as the word
clock master (transmitting device), and the other devices
as the slaves (receiving devices) so that the slaves will
synchronize to the word clock master.
There are two ways in which the M7CL can operate as a
word clock slave that is synchronized to an externally-supplied word clock; the M7CL can use the clock data
included in the digital audio signal being input from a digital I/O card, or it can use a separate word clock signal
supplied to the rear panel WORD CLOCK IN jack.

Here’s how to adjust the gain of the HA (Head Amp) for
each input channel to which a mic or instrument is connected.
On the M7CL, channel parameters can be controlled using
either the SELECTED CHANNEL section to make settings for a single channel, or using the Centralogic section
to make settings for up to eight channels. Use the method
that’s appropriate for your situation.
● Using the SELECTED CHANNEL section
(settings for one channel)
With this method, you select the input channel whose settings you want to adjust, and use the encoders of the
SELECTED CHANNEL section to adjust the settings for
that channel.

Signal flow for input channels
● INPUT PATCH
● LCR (Left/Center/Right)
This assigns an input signal to the input channel.
This sends the signal of the input channel as a three-channel output (the MONO (C) channel and the L/R channels)
to the STEREO bus / MONO bus.
● ø (Phase)
Switches the phase of the input signal.
● HPF (High Pass Filter)
This is a high pass filter that cuts the region below the
specified frequency.
● ATT (Attenuator)
Attenuates/boosts the level of the input signal.
● 4 BAND EQ (4 band equalizer)
A parametric EQ with four bands; HIGH, HIGH MID,
LOW MID, and LOW.
● DYNAMICS 1
This is a dynamics processor that can be used for gating,
ducking, expander, or compressor.
● DYNAMICS 2
This is a dynamics processor that can be used as a compressor, compander, or de-esser.
● LEVEL/DCA 1–8
Adjusts the input level of the channel.
● ON (On/off)
Turns the input channel on/off. If off, that channel is
muted.
● PAN
This adjusts the panning of the signal sent from the
INPUT channel to the STEREO bus. If necessary, you can
turn on PAN LINK in the BUS SETUP popup window so
that the setting of this parameter will also be applied to the
signal sent to two MIX or MATRIX buses that are set to
stereo.
● BALANCE
On ST IN channels, the BALANCE parameter is used
instead of PAN. The BALANCE parameter adjusts the
volume balance of the left/right signals sent from the ST
IN channel to the STEREO bus. If necessary, you can turn
on PAN LINK in the BUS SETUP popup window so that
the setting of this parameter will also be applied to the signal sent to two MIX or MATRIX buses that are set to stereo.

Sending the signal from an input channel to the STEREO/MONO buses
Sending the signal from an input channel to the STEREO/MONO buses
This section explains how to send the signal of an input channel to the STEREO bus or MONO
bus.
The STEREO bus and MONO bus are used mainly 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 modes differ in the following
ways.
This mode sends the signal from the input channel to the STEREO bus and to the MONO bus independently.
• The signal sent from the input channel to the STEREO bus and to the MONO bus can be switched on/off individually.
• The panning of the signal sent from an INPUT channel to the STEREO bus L/R is controlled by the TO ST PAN knob.
(The signal sent to the MONO bus is not affected by this knob.)
• The left/right volume balance of the signal sent from a ST IN channel to the STEREO bus is controlled by this knob.
(The signal sent to the MONO bus is not affected by this knob.)
■ LCR mode
This mode sends the signal of the input channel to a total of three buses (STEREO (L/R) and MONO (C)) together.
• The signal sent from the input channel to the STEREO bus and MONO bus will be switched on/off as a whole.
• The CSR (Center Side Ratio) knob specifies the level ratio between the signal sent from the 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 the signal sent from the input channel to the STEREO
(L/R) bus and MONO (C) bus.

Sending the signal from an input channel to a MIX bus
This section explains how to send the signal from an input channel to MIX buses 1–16.
MIX buses are used mainly for the purpose of sending signals to foldback speakers on stage, or
to effect processors. You can send a signal from an input channel to a MIX bus in the following
three ways.
■ Using the SELECTED CHANNEL section
In this method, you use the encoders of the SELECTED CHANNEL section to adjust the send levels to the MIX buses.
When using this method, the signals sent from a specific input channel to all MIX buses can be adjusted simultaneously.
In this method, you use the multifunction encoders of the Centralogic section to adjust the send levels to the MIX buses.
When using this method, the signals sent from eight consecutive input channels to a specific MIX bus can be adjusted
simultaneously.
■ Using the faders (SENDS ON FADER mode)
In this method, you switch the M7CL to SENDS ON FADER mode, and use the faders of the top panel to adjust the send
levels to the MIX buses. When using this method, the signals sent from all input channels to a specific MIX bus can be
adjusted simultaneously.

to the even-numbered MIX bus.
HINT
MIX buses can be either a FIXED type whose send
level is fixed, or a VARI type whose send level is variable. You can switch between FIXED and VARI types
for each two adjacent odd-numbered/even-numbered
MIX buses (for the procedure → p. 234).
If the send-destination MIX bus is a FIXED type, a O
symbol is displayed instead of the TO MIX SEND
LEVEL knob. In this case you won’t be able to adjust
the send level.
• If necessary, the TO MIX PAN/TO MIX BALANCE knob setting can be linked with operations of the TO ST PAN/TO ST

There are two ways to send signals from a MIX channel to the STEREO bus or MONO bus; ST/
MONO mode and LCR mode. You can select the mode individually for each channel. These
modes differ in the following ways.
■ ST/MONO mode
This mode sends the signal from the MIX channel to the STEREO bus and to the MONO bus independently.
• The signal sent from the MIX channel to the STEREO bus and to the MONO bus can be switched on/off individually.
• The panning of the signal sent from a monaural MIX channel to the STEREO bus L/R is controlled by the TO ST PAN
knob. (The signal sent to the MONO bus is not affected by this knob.)
• The left/right volume balance of the signal sent from a stereo MIX channel to the STEREO bus is controlled by the
BALANCE knob. (The signal sent to the MONO bus is not affected by this knob.)
■ LCR mode
This mode sends the signal of the MIX channel to a total of three buses (STEREO (L/R) and MONO (C)) together.
• The signal sent from the MIX channel to the STEREO (L/R) bus and MONO (C) bus will be switched on/off as a whole.
• The CSR (Center Side Ratio) knob specifies the level ratio between the signal sent from the MIX channel to the STEREO (L/R) bus and to the MONO (C) bus.
• The TO ST PAN knob / BALANCE knob specifies the level of the signal sent from the MIX channel to the STEREO (L/R)
bus and MONO (C) bus.
HINT
• If you want to monitor the signal of the STEREO bus or MONO bus through headphones etc., you should press
the MONITOR button in the function access area to select “LCR” as the monitor source before you continue with

EQ and Dynamics
This chapter explains the EQ (equalizer) and dynamics that are provided on
each channel of the M7CL.
About EQ and dynamics
Each input channel and output channel of the M7CL 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 adjust the level of the input signal. 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,
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.
This section explains the four-band EQ that is provided on input channels and output channels.
1 Use the navigation keys to access the
OVERVIEW screen for the channel whose
EQ you want to control.
The EQ field shows the response of the EQ. In this
OVERVIEW screen, you can use the EQ encoders of
the SELECTED CHANNEL section to edit the parameter settings.

Grouping and linking
This chapter explains the DCA Group and Mute Group functions that let you
control the level or muting of multiple channels together, the Channel Link
function that links the parameters of multiple channels, and the operations
that let you copy or move parameters between channels.
About DCA Groups and Mute Groups
The M7CL provides eight DCA groups and eight mute groups that let you control the level of multiple
channels simultaneously.
DCA groups allow you to assign input channels to eight 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 etc. can be grouped.
Mute groups allow you to use user-defined keys [1]–[12] to mute/unmute multiple channels in a single
operation. You can use this to cut out multiple channels simultaneously. Mute groups 1–8 can be used
with both input channels and output channels. Both types of channel can exist in the same group.
Using DCA groups
This section explains how to assign input channels to the eight DCA groups and use the faders of
the Centralogic section to control them.
Assigning channels to a DCA
group
To assign a channel to a DCA group, you can either select
a specific DCA group first 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.

Scene memory
This chapter explains how to perform scene memory operations.
About scene memories
On the M7CL, the mix parameter settings and input/output port patching can be assigned a
name and stored into memory (and later recalled from memory) as a “scene.”
Each scene is assigned a number in the range of 000–300. Scene 000 is a read-only scene used
for initializing the mix parameters, and scenes 001–300 are writable scenes.
Each scene contains the position of the top panel faders and [ON] keys, as well as the following
parameters.
Input/output port patching
Bus settings
Head amp settings
EQ settings
Dynamics 1 and 2 settings
Rack (GEQ/effect) settings
Pan/balance settings
Insert/direct out settings
On/off status and send level of signals sent to MIX buses

Monitor/Cue
This chapter explains the M7CL’s monitor/cue functions.
About the monitor/cue functions
The Monitor function lets you audition various outputs through your nearfield monitors or headphones. Below the M7CL’s front pad there is a PHONES OUT jack for monitoring, and this jack
always lets you monitor the signal that is selected as the monitoring source. By assigning the
MONITOR OUT L/R/C channels to the desired output jacks, you can also monitor the same signal through external speakers. You can select the following signals as the monitor source.
• STEREO channel output signal
• MONO channel output signal
• STEREO + MONO channel output signal
• ST IN channel 1–4 input signal
• A combination of up to eight MIX, MATRIX, STEREO, or MONO channel output signals and ST IN
channel input signals.
The Cue function lets you check an individual selected channel/DCA group by temporarily monitoring it via MONITOR OUT or PHONES. When you press the top panel [CUE] key, the cue signal of
the corresponding channel/DCA group is sent as the monitor output from the selected output port.
NOTE
• The cue signal is sent to the same output destination as the monitor signal. Be aware that for this reason,
if you turn off the Monitor function, the cue signal will no longer be sent to the connected monitor speakers. However, the cue signal will always be sent to the PHONES OUT jack.

enable Cue for this group, assign the DCA groups to the
Centralogic section and press a [CUE] key in the Centralogic section to turn Cue on.
It is not possible to simultaneously turn on Cue between
different groups. Normally, the group to which the most
recently pressed [CUE] key (or a CUE/KEY IN CUE button in the screen) belongs will take priority, and the [CUE]
keys of the previously selected group will be defeated.
However if you switch the Cue signal group in a specific
order, the state of the [CUE] keys of the previouslyselected group will be restored when the current Cue signal is defeated.
The following illustration shows the priority order of the
[CUE] keys. After you have switched groups from lower
to upper levels, if you then defeat Cue for the upper group,
the previous [CUE] key status of the group immediately
below will be restored.

Talkback / Oscillator
This chapter explains how to use talkback and oscillator.
About the talkback and oscillator functions
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 mixing engineer to the performers or staff. If necessary, a mic connected to INPUT jacks, ST IN jacks, and OMNI IN jacks can
also be used for talkback.
The M7CL also contains an oscillator that can output a sine wave or pink noise to the desired
bus, and this can be used to check external equipment or to test the acoustical response of the
room.
The diagram below shows the signal flow of the talkback/oscillator signals.

Graphic EQ and effects
This chapter explains how to use the built-in graphic EQ and effects, and how
to perform remote control operations via the dedicated protocol to control an
external head amp (e.g, Yamaha AD8HR, SB168-ES) from the M7CL.
About the virtual rack
The M7CL lets you use the built-in graphic EQ (subsequently abbreviated as “GEQ”) and effects
to modify signals. You can use two types of GEQ; 31BandGEQ which lets you freely adjust thirtyone bands (frequency regions), and Flex15GEQ which lets you adjust any fifteen of thirty-one
bands. You can also use 54 different effect types.
In order to use a GEQ or effect, you must mount the GEQ or effect in one of the eight virtual racks, 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. Only GEQ can be mounted in racks 1–4, and
either GEQ or effects can be mounted in racks 5–8. [Figure 1]
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.) [Figure 2] shows the signal flow for the virtual racks.

About the graphic EQ
Inserting a GEQ in a channel
The M7CL lets you mount a GEQ in racks 1–8 and patch
it to the insert-out/in of a channel. The gain of each band
can be adjusted using the Centralogic section’s faders and
[ON] keys.
The following two types of GEQ are provided.
• 31BandGEQ
...........This is a monaural 31-band GEQ. Each
band is 1/3 octave wide, the adjustable
gain range is ±15 dB, and the gain of all
thirty-one bands can be adjusted. If a
31BandGEQ is mounted in a rack, one
channel of input and output can be used
for that rack.
INPUT
Rack
The M7CL’s GEQ units can be patched to the insert-in/out
of any channel except the ST IN channels. Here’s how to
insert a GEQ into the selected channel for use.
1 As described in “Virtual rack operations”
(→ p. 172) steps 1–6, mount a GEQ in a rack
and set its input source and output destination.
The rack shown in the GEQ/EFFECT field indicates
the approximate GEQ settings and the input/output
levels. A rack in which a Flex15GEQ is mounted will

About the internal effects
About the internal effects
The M7CL’s internal effects can be mounted in racks 5–8, and patched to an output channel’s
output or input channel’s input, or inserted into a channel. For each effect mounted in a rack, you
can choose one of 54 types of effect. With the default settings, the signals from MIX channels
13–16 are input to racks 5–8, and from the racks are then output to ST IN 1–4 (L/R).
NOTE
• The internal effects cannot be mounted in racks 1–4.
• Some effect types can be mounted only in rack 5 or 7.
To use an internal effect via send/return, assign the output
of a MIX channel etc. 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.

*Except for a ST IN 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.

If a signal is assigned to only one input of a two-input
effect, it will be processed as mono-in/stereo-out regardless of whether a Stereo effect type or Mix effect type is
selected.
Alternatively, you can assign the input and output of the
internal effect to the insert-out/in of a desired channel
(except for a ST IN channel), so that the effect is inserted
into that channel.

Using an external head amp
If you connect an external head amp that supports remote control via a dedicated protocol (e.g,
Yamaha AD8HR, SB168-ES) to the REMOTE connector of the M7CL-32/48 or the EtherSound
connector of the M7CL-48ES. You will be able to remotely control parameters such as the phantom power (+48V), gain, and HPF of each channel from the M7CL.
For information on connecting the M7CL48-ES to SB168-ES units, please refer to the “Connecting SB168-ES units to the M7CL-48ES using the STAGE BOX SETUP function” section in Chapter 4. (→ p. 43)
NOTE
• Connecting the M7CL-48ES and DME8i-ES/4io-ES via the EtherSound connectors enables you to remotely
control the DME8i-ES/4io-ES’s head amp. For more information on the settings, please refer to the DME8i-ES/
8o-ES/4io-ES Owner’s Manual and AVS-ESMonitor Owner’s Manual.
Connecting the M7CL-32/48 to
the AD8HR
To remotely control the AD8HR from the M7CL-32/48,
use an RS422 D-sub9 pin cable to connect the REMOTE
connector located on the M7CL-32/48’s rear panel to the
AD8HR’s HA REMOTE 1 connector. This connection
allows the M7CL-32/48 to remotely control the AD8HR.
So that the signals input to the AD8HR will be sent to the
M7CL-32/48, use a D-sub25 pin AES/EBU cable to connect the AD8HR’s DIGITAL OUT A (or B) to an I/O card
installed in a slot of the M7CL-32/48.
Alternatively, you can use a “daisy chain” connection to
remotely control multiple AD8HR units simultaneously.

Chapter 17
MIDI
This chapter explains how MIDI messages can be transmitted from an external device to control the M7CL’s parameters, and conversely how operations
on the M7CL can be transmitted as MIDI messages.
MIDI functionality on the M7CL
The M7CL 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 M7CL, a program change message of the corresponding number 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/encoder or key operation) on the M7CL, 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.
● Parameter change (SysEx) transmission and reception
When specific events (fader/encoder or key operations, changes in system settings or user settings) are executed, “parameter
change” 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, M7CL operations can be recorded and played back on a MIDI sequencer or other external device, or
changes in system settings and user settings can be reflected on another M7CL console.
NOTE
17
MIDI
• The port used for transmission and reception of MIDI messages can be selected from the rear panel MIDI
IN/OUT connectors, the rear panel REMOTE connector, or an I/O card installed in a slot 1–3. All of the
above functionality will be common to the selected port.

Using control changes to control parameters
Using control changes to control parameters
You can use MIDI control change messages to control specified events (fader/encoder operations, [ON] key on/off operations etc.) on the M7CL. 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
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)
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.

Using parameter changes to control parameters
On the M7CL, you can use a type of system exclusive messages called “parameter changes” to
control specific events (fader/encoder operations, [ON] key on/off operations, etc.) as an alternative to using control changes or NRPN messages.
For details on the parameter changes that can be transmitted and received, refer to “MIDI data

p. 198).
NOTE
• Parameter changes include a “device number” that specifies
the transmitting or receiving device. The transmit (Tx) channel
and receive (Rx) channel specified in the MIDI SETUP page
are used as the device number.
• Please be aware that if the device number included in the
transmitted parameter change does not match the device
number of the receiving M7CL console, the message will be
ignored.
• If parameter change and control change transmission/reception are turned on at the same time, a large amount of data
will flood the MIDI port and cause overflows or other problems, so you should avoid this.
5 Use the Tx button and Rx button of the
PARAMETER CHANGE field to turn on
parameter change transmission/reception.
In this state when you operate specific parameters on
the M7CL, the corresponding parameter change messages will be transmitted. If valid parameter change
messages are transmitted from an external device, the
parameters assigned to those parameter changes will
be controlled.

User settings (Security)
This chapter explains the User Level settings that allow restrictions on the
parameters that can be operated by each user, the Console Lock function
that temporarily disables operation of the console, the Preferences settings
that allow the operating environment to be customized, and Save/Load operations using USB storage devices.
User Level settings
User Level settings allow you to restrict the parameters that be operated by each user, or to change
the settings of user-defined keys and preference settings for each user. Settings for each user can be
stored as a “user authentication key” on a USB storage device, allowing users to be switched easily,
simply by connecting this storage device to a USB connector. This is convenient in the following situations.
• Unintended or mistaken operation can be prevented.
• The range of functionality operable by an outside engineer (guest engineer) can be limited.
• In situations in which multiple operators alternate with each other, output settings etc. can be locked to
prevent unintended operations.
• Preferences of each operator can easily be switched.
User types and user authentication keys
There are three types of user, as follows. In order to operate the M7CL, you must log-in as a user.
• Administrator ............This is the administrator of the M7CL, and can use all of its functionality. Only one set of
Administrator settings is maintained inside the M7CL. The Administrator can create user
authentication keys for other users.
• Guest..........................The Guest can use only the range of functionality permitted by the Administrator. Only one
set of Guest settings is maintained inside the M7CL.
When a user logs on, the user settings for that user are applied. User settings include the following information.
• Password (except for Guest)
• User level (except for Administrator)
• Preferences
18
User settings (Security)
• User ............................A User can use only the range of functionality permitted by the Administrator. User settings
are saved on a USB storage device as a user authentication key. Multiple sets of User settings can be saved with different user names. A User who has Power User privileges can
create or edit user authentication keys with a specified user level.

Word Clock and Slot settings
“Word clock” refers to the clock that provides the basis of timing for digital audio signal processing. If you connect external equipment such as a DAW system or HDR (Hard Disk Recorder) to a
digital I/O card installed in slot 1–3, this equipment must be synchronized to the same word clock
in order for digital audio signals to be sent and received. If digital audio signals are transferred in
an unsynchronized state, the data will 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 M7CL 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).
The following steps show how to select the clock source that the M7CL will use.
1 In the function access area, press the
SETUP button to access the SETUP screen.
2 In the SYSTEM SETUP field at the center of
the screen, press the WORD CLOCK/SLOT
SETUP button to open the WORD CLOCK/

two channels.
E SRC (Sampling Rate Converter)
These buttons are on/off switches (in two groups of
two channels) for the sampling rate converters that
automatically convert an external clock frequency to
match the M7CL. This is available only for slots in
which a digital I/O card with a built-in sampling rate
converter is installed.
F EMPHASIS STATUS
This indicates whether emphasis is applied to the input
signal, in sets of two channels. This item is only for
display, and cannot be edited. This is available only for
slots in which a digital I/O card is installed.
3 In the MASTER CLOCK SELECT field,
select the desired clock source.
You can choose one of the following clock sources.
● INT 48 k
● INT 44.1 k
The M7CL’s internal clock (sampling rate 48 kHz
or 44.1 kHz, respectively) will be the clock source.
Choose one of these if you want to use the M7CL as
the word clock master.
● WORD CLOCK IN
The word clock supplied from the rear panel
WORD CLOCK IN jack will be used as the clock
source. In this case, the M7CL will operate as a
word clock slave.
● EtherSound(M7CL-48ES)
The word clock supplied from the EtherSound connector will be used as the clock source. In this case,
the M7CL will operate as a word clock slave. If the
AUTO CONFIGURE button is turned on in the ring
connection, the EtherSound clock source will be
automatically selected.
NOTE
• Select EtherSound if the AUTO CONFIGURE button is
turned off under one of the following circumstances:
• The devices are connected in a ring connection.
• The M7CL-48ES is inside a daisy chain.
● SLOT 1–3
The clock data of the digital audio signal supplied
via a digital I/O card in slot 1–3 (selectable in twochannel units) will be used as the clock source. In
this case, the M7CL will operate as a word clock
slave.
The status (operating state) of the clock data being
received from each port is indicated by the color of the
symbol displayed immediately above. Each color has
the following significance.
● LOCK (light blue)
This indicates that a clock synchronized with the
selected source is being input. If an external device
is connected to the corresponding connector or slot,
input/output is occurring normally between that
device and the M7CL. If the sampling frequency is
close, this status may be displayed even if not synchronized.
● LOCK, 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 M7CL.
● SRC ON (green)
This is a special status only for SLOT 1–3, indicating that the corresponding channel’s SRC (Sampling Rate Converter) is enabled. This means that
even if the signal is not synchronized, normal input/
output with the M7CL is occurring.
● UNLOCK (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 M7CL.
● 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.
If the symbol for the port selected in step 3 has turned
light blue, and the clock frequency is shown at the
upper left of the MASTER CLOCK SELECT field,
this indicates that the M7CL is operating correctly
with the new clock.
HINT
• If you use a digital I/O card that contains a sampling rate converter (MY8-AE96S), input and output can occur normally
with the M7CL even when unsynchronized. In this case, turn
on the SRC button for the slot/channel that is receiving the
signal.
NOTE
• If the symbol 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. In order 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 whose SRC is on as the
word clock source, a message will appear, warning you that
the sampling rate converter will be disabled.

Using cascade connections
Using cascade connections
By cascade-connecting two or more M7CL units or an M7CL with an external mixer (such as the
Yamaha PM5D) you can share the buses. For example this is convenient when you want to use
an external mixer to increase the number of inputs.
Here we will explain cascade connections and operation, using an example in which two M7CL
units are cascade-connected.
To cascade two M7CL units, you will install digital I/O
cards in their respective 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 M7CL and in the cascade
master M7CL, and the DIGITAL OUT jacks of the sending unit connected to the DIGITAL IN jacks of the receiving unit.

MONO(C) bus, and CUE bus (L/R) can be shared, and the
mixed signals transmitted from the cascade master M7CL.
(If you use sixteen-channel digital I/O cards, you’ll be
able to share all buses.)
You do not need to make settings on each M7CL to specify the slot/channel to which each bus is assigned. The
procedure below is given separately for the cascade slave
and the cascade master.
HINT
• If you’re cascade-connecting the M7CL with the PM5D, you can
use the M7CL as the cascade slave if you set 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 the cascade slave will increase
according to the number of units from the cascade master.

Connecting SB168-ES units to the M7CL-48ES using the Stage Box Setup function
Connecting SB168-ES units to the M7CL-48ES
using the Stage Box Setup function
When you connect one M7CL-48ES to up to three SB168-ES units, using the Stage Box Setup
function enables you to set up the EtherSound patches and word clock without using AVSESMonitor.
For more information on setting up patches, refer to “Connecting SB168-ES units to the M7CL48ES using the STAGE BOX SETUP function” (→ p. 43).
You can use the Stage Box Setup function in the EXT-ES HA field in the VIRTUAL RACK window.
Use one of the following two methods to display the EXT-ES HA field:
• Press the SETUP button, then press the STAGE BOX SETUP button in the SETUP screen.
• Press the RACK button, press the EXT-ES HA tab in the VIRTUAL RACK window, then press
the SB168-ES button in the VIEW field.

1 AUTO CONFIGURE button
This button switches the automatic configuration of EtherSound patches on and off. When this button is switched
on, the master clock will be set to INT 48kHz (in a daisy
chain connection) or to EtherSound (48kHz) (in a ring
connection).
If you want to change the EtherSound setting in AVSESMonitor or if you want the M7CL-48ES or SB168-ES
to start up with the settings made in AVS-ESMonitor,
switch this button off.
NOTE
• The word clock setting cannot be changed if the AUTO CONFIGURE button is turned ON.
B DAISY CHAIN / RING buttons
Use these buttons to switch to DAISY CHAIN (daisy
chain connection) or RING (ring connection) setup,
according to the connection with the SB168-ES.
For more information on daisy chain and ring connections, please refer to “Connecting SB168-ES units to the
M7CL-48ES using the STAGE BOX SETUP function” (→
p. 43).
242
M7CL Owner’s Manual
You can connect the M7CL-48ES and SB168-ES units in
a daisy chain or ring connection. If the connection type
and the Stage Box Setup data do not match, the patch and
word clock settings will not work properly.
NOTE
• Also, be sure to change the SB168-ES dip switches according to
the connection type. (→ p. 43)
1 Press the AUTO CONFIGURE button to turn
it off (the button indicator will turn off).
2 Press the DAISY CHAIN button for a daisy
chain connection. Press the RING button
for a ring connection.
3 Press the AUTO CONFIGURE button to turn
it on (the button indicator will light).
A setup confirmation dialog box is displayed.
4 Confirm that the setting is correct, then
press the OK button.
Changing the EtherSound settings from AVS-ESMonitor (M7CL-48ES)
Changing the EtherSound settings from AVS-ESMonitor (M7CL-48ES)
Follow the steps below to change the EtherSound settings from AVS-ES Monitor. (For example,
when you want to connect an EtherSound device other than the SB168-ES units.)
1 Set SB168-ES dip switches 5–8 to OFF (up).
2 Press the AUTO CONFIGURE button to turn
it off (the button indicator will turn off).
3 Connect a computer (with AVS-ESMonitor
installed) to the [3rd] connector on the
M7CL-48ES.
4 Start AVS-ESMonitor.
5 Select the desired EtherSound device (such
as an M7CL-48ES, SB168-ES, etc.) for
which you want to modify the settings from
AVS-ESMonitor, then open the Control
page.
6 Remove the check from Lock Inputs and
Lock Outputs in the Lock Routing section
on the Control page.
7 Modify the settings from AVS-ESMonitor as
necessary.
8 If necessary, execute “Write to Non Volatile
Memory” to write the modified data to Non
Volatile Memory (non-volatile memory of
the EtherSound module).
NOTE
• If the AUTO CONFIGURE button has been turned on, the
Stage Box Setup function of the M7CL-48ES will take priority.
Thus the setting data written to non-volatile memory will not
affect either the M7CL-48ES or SB168-ES. If you want to use
the setting data that was written to non-volatile memory, leave
the AUTO CONFIGURE button off (the button indicator is
turned off).
• If you turn on the power to the SB168-ES while dip switches
5–8 are set to OFF (up), settings written to non-volatile memory will be used at the time of startup.
• By viewing the “Setting from DIP Switch 5–8” section of the
SB168-ES Control page in AVS-ESMonitor, you can check
the M7CL-48ES’s connection type as specified via SB168-ES
dip switches 5–8. In the same way, you can check the Stage
Box Setup function settings of the M7CL48ES by viewing the
AUTO CONFIGURE section of the M7CL-48ES Control page.
You can modify these settings temporarily from AVS-ESMonitor.

Dynamics Parameters
■ COMPRESSOR
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.
Parameter
Range
Description
THRESHOLD (dB)
–54 to 0 (55 points)
This determines the level of input signal required to trigger the compressor.
RATIO

8.0:1, 10:1, 20:1, ∞:1 (16 points)
This determines the amount of compression, that is, the change in output signal
level relative to change in input signal level.
ATTACK (ms)
0–120 (121 points)
This determines how soon the signal will be compressed once the compressor has
been triggered.
RELEASE (ms)
44.1kHz: 6 ms – 46.0 sec
48kHz: 5 ms – 42.3 sec (160 points)
This determines how soon the compressor returns to its normal gain once the trigger
signal level drops below the threshold. The value is expressed as the duration
required for the level to change by 6 dB.
OUT GAIN (dB)
0.0 to +18.0 (181 points)
This sets the compressor’s output signal level.
Hard, 1–5 (6 points)
This determines how compression is applied at the threshold. For higher knee settings, compression is applied gradually as the signal exceeds the specified threshold,
creating a more natural sound.

8.0:1, 10:1, 20:1, ∞:1 (16 points)
This determines the amount of expansion.
ATTACK (ms)
0–120 (121 points)
This determines how soon the expander returns to its normal gain once the trigger
signal level exceeds the threshold.
RELEASE (ms)
44.1kHz: 6 ms – 46.0 sec
48kHz: 5 ms – 42.3 sec (160 points)
This determines how soon the signal is expanded once the signal level drops below
the threshold. The value is expressed as the duration required for the level to change
by 6 dB.
OUT GAIN (dB)
0.0 to +18.0 (181 points)
This sets the expander’s output signal level.
Hard, 1–5 (6 points)
This determines how expansion is applied at the threshold. For higher knee settings,
expansion is applied gradually as the signal falls below the specified threshold, creating a more natural sound.

■ COMPANDER HARD (COMPANDER-H), COMPANDER SOFT (COMPANDER-S)
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.

Effects and tempo synchronization
Effects and tempo synchronization
Some of the M7CL’s effects allow you to synchronize the effect 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 uses TEMPO and NOTE to calculate a value that will be the basis for the tempo, and continues making
adjustments so that this tempo basis stays essentially the same as the DELAY (or FREQ.). This means that when TEMPO, NOTE, and
DELAY (or FREQ.) are synchronized, and you change any of these values, the other parameters will be re-set in order to maintain the
correct relationship. The parameters that are re-set and the calculation method(*a) used are as follows.
If you turn SYNC on → NOTE will be set
If you edit DELAY (or FREQ.) → NOTE will be set
In this case, the NOTE value is calculated as follows.
NOTE = DELAY (or FREQ.)/(4 x (60/TEMPO))
If you edit 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)
If you edit TEMPO → DELAY (or FREQ.) will be set
In this case, the DELAY (or FREQ.) value is calculated as follows.
DELAY (or FREQ.) = original DELAY (or FREQ.) x (previous TEMPO/new TEMPO)
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= original DELAY x (previous TEMPO/new TEMPO)
= 250 x (120/121)
= 247.9 (ms)
Thus, the TEMPO will change from 250 ms to 247.9 ms.
*a Rounded values are used for the calculation results.
• Special characteristics of the TEMPO parameter
The TEMPO parameter has the following characteristics that are unlike other parameters.
• It is a common value shared by all effects
• You cannot stored 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 → 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 M7CL 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.
= 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

• Ranges of the NOTE and TEMPO values
The ranges of the NOTE and TEMPO values are limited by the ranges of the DELAY or FREQ. values. You cannot set NOTE or
TEMPO values that would cause DELAY or FREQ. to exceed their maximum possible values when synchronized to tempo. This limitation also applies even when SYNC is OFF.

= 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);
(2-3) When only High data is received
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;
Two types of control change can be transmitted and received; [NRPN] (NonRegistered Parameter Numbers) and freely-assigned [TABLE] (1CH x 110)
messages. Select either [TABLE] or [NRPN].
(3-1) When High, Middle, and Low data is received
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 assign table]. For the parameters that can be assigned, refer to
“Parameters that can be assigned to control changes” on page 270.
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.
(3-2) When only Low data is received
Transmission
If [TABLE] is selected, and if [Control Change Tx] is ON when you operate a
parameter that is assigned in the [Control assign table], 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” on page 270.
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” on page 270.
Control Change messages are not used for transmission to M7CL 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.

1.4 PROGRAM CHANGE
(Cn)
The M7CL uses the following data types for a bulk dump.
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 and effect library are recalled according to the settings of the [Program
Change Table].
Transmission
If [Program Change TX] is ON, these messages are transmitted according to the
[Program Change Table] settings when scene memory and effect library are
recalled.
If SINGLE CH is selected, these messages are transmitted on the [Tx CH]
channel.
If the recalled scene memory and effect library has 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 M7CL 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.

Data is lost when you write to the preset library.
The unique header (Model ID) identifies whether the device is a M7CL.
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.
In the data portion, seven words of 8-bit data are converted into eight words of
7-bit data.

❍ This can be adjusted in the SETUP screen. (→ p. 237)
Signal level of a specific frequency is
low
❍ Could the EQ gain be turned down excessively?
❍ Routing a signal through a GEQ or effect will delay it relative to other signals. If this signal is mixed with
the signal via a different signal path, a comb filtering effect will cause the level of a specific frequency
to be decreased.
