Input patching
QL series consoles and I/O devices feature two types of patching: Dante audio network
patching and QL console internal patching.
For Dante audio network patching, you will use the DANTE INPUT PATCH window. In this
window, you can patch the QL console and I/O device inputs. Sixty-four (64) channels for the
QL5 and thirty-two (32) channels for the QL1 can be input from a DANTE audio network.
Choose channels from Dante audio network signals and select the I/O devices that you want
to control from the QL series console.
Then, route the input signals (that were patched in the DANTE INPUT PATCH window) to
channels on the QL series console. To do this, choose input ports from DANTE 1–64 (for QL5)
or DANTE1–32 (for QL1) in the GAIN/PATCH window.

Cuts the region below the specified frequency.
This chapter explains various operations for input channels.
• 4 BAND EQ (4 band equalizer)
A parametric EQ with four bands: HIGH, HIGH MID, LOW MID, and LOW.
Signal flow for input channels
• DYNAMICS 1
This is a dynamics processor that can be used for gating, ducking, expander, or
compressor.
The input channels comprise the section that processes signals received from the I/O
devices, rear panel input jacks, or slots 1–2, and sends them to the STEREO bus, MONO bus,
MIX buses, or MATRIX buses. There are two types of input channels, as follows.
• DYNAMICS 2
This is a dynamics processor that can be used as a compressor, compander, or de-esser.
• INPUT DELAY
Corrects input signal delay. You can specify up to 1000ms.
INPUT channel (monaural)
• LEVEL/DCA 1–16
Adjusts the input level of the effect.
These channels are used to process monaural signals. When the QL series console is in the
default state, the signal from the analog input connector is assigned.
• ON (On/off)
Turns the input channel on or off. If this is off, the corresponding channel will be muted.
ST IN channel (stereo)
• PAN
Adjusts the panning of signals sent from the input channel to the STEREO bus.
For the ST IN channel (stereo), you can switch between PAN and BALANCE. The
BALANCE parameter adjusts the volume balance of the left/right signals sent from the
ST IN channel (stereo) to the STEREO bus. You can turn on PAN LINK in the BUS SETUP
window so that the setting of the PAN parameter will also be applied to signals sent to
two MIX or MATRIX buses that are set to stereo.
These channels are used to process stereo signals. When the QL series console is in the
default state, the input signals from EFFECT RACKS 5–8 are assigned to ST IN 1–4. There
are no assignments for ST IN 5–8.

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 34).
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. The
signal in the audio network is maintained at a constant level, and therefore increasing the
analog gain as much as possible will lower the relative noise floor and improve the S/N ratio.
The gain of each signal input to the QL series unit will be adjusted by the digital gain
parameter of the QL series console.
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 rapidly if you’ve assigned Gain Compensation on/off as the SET
BY SEL 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.

Sending a signal from an input channel to a MIX/
MATRIX bus
MIX buses can be either a FIXED type that features a fixed send level, or a VARI type that
features a variable send level. 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.
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 ways.
 If the MIX bus is a FIXED type
 Using the SELECTED CHANNEL section
With this method, you use the [TOUCH AND TURN] knob to adjust the send levels to the MIX/
MATRIX buses. When using this method, signals sent from a specific input channel to all MIX/
MATRIX buses can be adjusted collectively.
A gray circle is displayed instead of the TO MIX SEND LEVEL knob, and you cannot
adjust the send level.
 Using the faders (SENDS ON FADER mode)
 For a VARI type MIX bus or a MATRIX bus
With this method, you switch the QL series unit to SENDS ON FADER mode, and use the
faders on the top panel to adjust the level of signals sent to the MIX/MATRIX buses. When
using this method, signals sent from all input channels to a specific MIX/MATRIX bus can be
adjusted simultaneously.
Using the SELECTED CHANNEL section
Use the [TOUCH AND TURN] knob to adjust the send level.
This section explains how to use the [TOUCH AND TURN] knob to adjust the send levels of
signals sent from a specific input channel to all MIX/MATRIX buses.
STEP
1. Press the Bank Select keys in the Fader Bank section and the [SEL] keys on the top
panel to select the input channel from which you want to send the signal to the
MIX/MATRIX buses.
2. Turn on the ON button in the SEND field in the SELECTED CHANNEL VIEW screen.
3. Use the [TOUCH AND TURN] knob to adjust the send levels to the MIX/MATRIX
buses.

2 ALL POST button
 If the MIX/MATRIX bus is a stereo bus
Sets the send point to POST. (The send point is the point at which signals are sent from
all send-source channels — including the input and output channels — to the selected
send destination.) At this time, the PRE/POST button will turn off.
3 Send destination indicator
Indicates the currently-selected send destination.
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).
4 Send destination select buttons
Select MIX/MATRIX buses as the send destination.
5 Channel select button
Selects the send-source channel that you wish to control. The current channel icon,
number, and color appear on the button, and the channel name appears below the
button.
NOTE
• For an INPUT channel (monaural), 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 PAN 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 ST IN channel (stereo), if BALANCE mode has been selected in the TO STEREO/MONO
window (8ch), 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 BAL 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 (8ch), the left knob will
function as the PAN knob. The right knob will function as send level, just as in BALANCE mode.
6 PRE/POST button
Switches the send point of each send-source channel between PRE and POST. If the
button is lit, the send point is set to PRE.
NOTE
• If the PRE/POST button is on, you can also select PRE EQ (immediately before the EQ) or PRE
FADER (immediately before the fader) for each MIX/MATRIX bus. This setting is made in the BUS
SETUP window (page 232).

Each input channel and output channel on a QL 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.

Channel Job
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
QL 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
DCA faders 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.
Function
Access Area
CH JOB
menu
NOTE
• 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.
• 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 QL 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.
 Selecting channels to belong to a specific DCA group
STEP
1. In the Function Access Area, press the CH JOB button.
2. Press the DCA GROUP button.
3. Use the DCA GROUP select button to select the DCA group to which you want to
assign channels.

Mute group
QL series consoles feature eight mute groups.
Mute groups enable you to use USER DEFINED keys [1]–[12] to mute or 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
channels can exist in the same group.
Assigning channels to mute groups
As with the DCA group, there are the following two ways to assign channels to mute groups.
• You can select a specific mute group first and then specify the channels to be assigned to
the group.
• You can select a specific channel and then specify the mute group to which it should be

of the newly recalled scene will appear on the panel of the QL 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.

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 the selected INPUT jack to the desired bus. This
is used mainly to convey instructions from the operator or sound engineer to the performers
and staff.
QL 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 INPUT jack on the rear panel.
4. Press a button in the ASSIGN field in the TALKBACK window to specify the bus(es)
to which the talkback signal will be sent (multiple selections are allowed).
5. To enable talkback, press the TALKBACK ON button to turn it on.
6. Press the INPUT TO TALKBACK button to select an input. Use the [TOUCH AND
TURN] knob to adjust the volume.

QL 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 QL 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, PEQ instance in each of the eight racks 1-8, an effect rack instance in each of
the eight racks 1-8 and EFFECT, 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.)

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 QL 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” on page 126 to mount Automixer in
rack 1 and set its input source and output destination.
2. Refer to “Inserting an external device into a channel” on page 20 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 gain for
multiple mics used for speeches.

When 2 people speak on multiple mics
Using Automixer

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 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 leave 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.)

 Channel control field
When increasing the weight setting in one channel
• The value displayed in the auto mix gain meter for that channel increases, while the
values for other channels are reduced.
• Channels with high weight setting values receive a higher system gain than other
channels.
Each channel is always in man, auto, or mute mode. The indicator for the enabled channel
mode will light. To select a mode, either press the button for that mode or press the PRESET

When reducing the weight setting in one channel
• The value displayed in the auto mix gain meter for that channel reduces, while the
values for other channels are increased.
• When speaking into multiple mics at the same time, it is difficult to distinguish between
different mics.
If you can hear noise near one mic (example: noise from a computer ventilation fan or
an air conditioner), you can suppress the noise by reducing the weight setting for that
channel.

Each channel can be assigned to three groups (a/b/c).
This group function is convenient for the following uses.
• Using multiple rooms: Assign the mics in each room to their own groups, and use a
different Automixer for each.
• Stereo pan: Assign mics panned to left, right and center to groups a, b, and c, to
maintain a stable stereo field.

• When the channel’s override button is on, the mode for that channel will switch to man
when the master OVERRIDE button is turned on.
• When the channel’s override is off, the mode for that channel will switch to mute when
the master OVERRIDE button is turned on.
• When the master OVERRIDE button is turned off, the channel will return to its previous
mode.
NOTE
• If the level indicator flashes, increase the input gain.
• If the level indicator lights up red, reduce the input gain.

The internal effects of the QL series console can be mounted in EFFECT racks 1–8, 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). There are no assignments to racks 1–4.

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.

Effects and tempo synchronization
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.
Some effects of the QL 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.
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. (However, this is relevant only if you turn the MIDI
button and the SYNC parameter on, while a MIDI CLOCK is being input to the MIDI IN
connector.)
• 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 QL 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.
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)
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
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.

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.

 Portico 5043
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.

• +4/+8.............Each meter uses –18 dB as the reference level of the output signal, and
indicates “0VU” for the value of the reference level added by +4 dB or
+8 dB.
• OFF...............Turns off the meter display.
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). The frequency response is utterly unlike that of a conventional EQ, and
is a uniquely distinctive characteristic 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
QL5
Audio signal
If an I/O card (such as an MY16-ES64 card) supports the remote protocol of an external head
amp in the QL’s slot, you will be able to remotely control from the QL 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 QL series console to an AD8HR
To remotely control the AD8HR from the QL series console, install an MY16-ES64
EtherSound card in Slot 1 on the QL unit, then use an Ethernet cable to connect the QL 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 QL series console. To transmit audio
signals (input to the AD8HR) to the QL 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 QL 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 four
AD8HR units. Each slot of the QL series console provides up to 16 channels of input, so if you
want the audio signals from the AD8HR to be input to the QL series console, you’ll need to
install two MY16-EX cards in the console and connect the MY16-ES64 via an Ethernet cable.

MIDI functionality on the QL series console
The QL 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 QL 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 QL 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, QL 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 QL console.

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 QL 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.
NOTE
Assignments to control numbers are maintained as settings for the entire system, rather than for
individual scenes.
 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.

If you plan to add DAW software, such as Steinberg Nuendo, to an audio network that includes
a QL console, you must use Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) software. DVS works as an audio
interface, making it possible to transmit signals between a DAW and an audio network (that
includes a QL 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.

Required devices and software
• QL series
• 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 or Dante Accelerator card
• 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 button to access the WORD CLOCK/SLOT window.
Install Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) and
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
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).
Less than V3.7

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 QL series console,

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).
The following settings can be made via 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 QL console
(page 158).
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
When you 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 QL 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
QL console. To do so, patch the signals so that they will be output from the DAW software to
DANTE 1–64 on the QL console (DANTE 1–32 for the QL1). 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 QL 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 159),
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.

Precautions for when Loading Console Data
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 QL 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 QL 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
button.
3. In the MASTER CLOCK SELECT field of the WORD CLOCK/SLOT 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.

4 Clock status display
 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
• 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 QL series console. If the sampling
frequency is close, this status may be displayed even if not synchronized.
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.
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 pull-up/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 QL series console.
• SRC ON (green)
This is a special status that applies only to SLOT1–2, 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 QL series console is occurring.
2 Master clock select buttons
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 QL 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 QL 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.

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 QL series consoles, or a QL 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 QL
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 QL 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 two eight-channel digital I/O cards for
each unit are installed in the cascade slave QL unit and in the cascade master QL unit. The
DIGITAL OUT jacks of the sending unit are connected to the DIGITAL IN jacks of the receiving
unit.
 SLOT field

In this example, up to twenty four buses chosen from MIX bus 1–16, 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 QL unit. (If you use two 16-channel 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 QL series console will be followed by
the other QL console.
You must specify bus assignments for each slot or channel on each QL unit. Separate
procedures are outlined for the cascade slave and the cascade master.

Reference Manual
Setup
NOTE
• With QL V1.07 and later, when settings are initialized, including Dante audio network settings, or
a firmware update is installed, the Preferred Master setting is turned on. This setting is not
changed when console settings are changed or when the console is restarted. It can be turned
off using the Dante Controller, if necessary. If this default setting is used to change CL or QL word
clock settings for anything other than Dante, that console is given priority as the clock master for
the Dante network to prevent clock synchronization errors. Further, you can use Dante Controller
to clearly specify the master by turning on only Preferred Master for the device that will always be
running (off for all other devices).
• If you change the SECONDARY PORT, you must also change the method of connection between
the QL 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
QL series console.
• When the CONSOLE ID is OFF or is set to 2, 3, or 4 for a QL series console, the console’s BIT/
LATENCY will not change even if the BIT/LATENCY is changed in the DANTE SETUP window
for the QL series console within a network for which the CONSOLE ID is set to 1.
• When the CONSOLE ID is set to OFF, the DANTE PATCH BY field is fixed to “DANTE
CONTROLLER.” Also, patching cannot be changed in the DANTE INPUT PATCH window.
• When the CONSOLE ID is set to OFF, all the mounted devices will be “virtual.”
You can edit HA GAIN and other settings for R series units, but notification of the settings will not
be sent to the device. This is the same as when the devices are not connected.
Switching the CONSOLE ID and SECONDARY PORT
STEP
1. In the DANTE SETUP window (SETUP page), select the CONSOLE ID and the
SECONDARY PORT.
2. Press the APPLY button.
3. In the window to confirm the change, press the OK button.
Setting the Dante audio network latency
An appropriate latency setting for signals sent and received via 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 QL 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 network switches and routers, as well as the switches that are built into QL
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.

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–F (000–FFF)
* indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or - (hyphen)
may be used)
• If you are controlling the QL 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 QL 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 QL 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 QL 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.”
If you want to enter the device label of an I/O device and mount it, press the DVS or MANUAL

Setup
The following illustration shows how the signal that is output from the GPI PORT will change
in each fader mode when a fader is operated. In this example, UPSTROKE in the
THRESHOLD field is set to –60.00, and DOWNSTROKE is set to –∞. (This illustration shows
is selected as the polarity of the GPI OUT port. If the polarity is
, the
the case in which
polarity of the output signal will be reversed.)
NOTE
• The THRESHOLD values specified by the UPSTROKE/DOWNSTROKE knobs are common to all
GPI OUT ports. However, you can individually choose the channel (fader) for each GPI OUT port.
• Only the UPSTROKE value will be valid if MODE is set to FADER START, and only the
DOWNSTROKE value will be valid if MODE is set to FADER STOP. If MODE is set to FADER
TALLY, both the UPSTROKE and DOWNSTROKE values will be valid.
5 MODE field
Here you can select the mode of fader operation that will be the trigger for signal output
from the GPI OUT port. You can choose from the following fader modes.
• NO ASSIGN
Operating the fader of the selected channel will not cause a signal to be output.
• FADER START
A trigger signal 250 msec long will be output when the fader of the selected channel
moves upward through the specified UPSTROKE level (–138.0 dB to 10.0 dB) from a
point below it.
FADER
START
• FADER STOP
A trigger signal 250 msec long will be output when the fader of the selected channel
reaches the specified DOWNSTROKE level (–∞ dB to 9.95 dB).

 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.

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.

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.
rxValue = Control value(High) * 128 + (curValue & 127);
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 QL Editor because
there is no guarantee that the contents of the assignment tables will match.
(PARAMETER CHANGE messages are always used.)

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 QL 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 QL 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.
Data List
In the data portion, seven words of 8-bit data are converted into eight words of
7-bit data.

3.3 PARAMETER CHANGE
Reception
This message is echoed if [PARAMETER CHANGE ECHO] is ON.
This message is received if [PARAMETER CHANGE Rx] is ON and [Rx CH] matches
the Device number included in the SUB STATUS. When a PARAMETER CHANGE is
received, the specified parameter will be controlled. When a PARAMETER
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.
In response to a PARAMETER REQUEST, a PARAMETER CHANGE will be
transmitted with [Rx CH] as its device number.
