1. Setup Guide
In order to use the MY16-CII it is first necessary to set the appropriate bundle number and other
CobraNet parameters. This section will describe the procedure for using the CobraNet Manager
to make the initial CobraNet settings for the MY16-CII.
Note: Use the following methods to set up CobraNet devices other than the MY16-CII:
・ Use the DME Designer software to set up the DME8i-C/DME8o-C/DME4io-C.
・ Use the NetworkAmp Manager software to set up the ACU16-C/NHB32-C.
・ Use the on-board rotary switches to set up the MY16-C.
Or use the setup facilities provided for devices not listed above.
1.1. Connections
Begin by making the connections illustrated below in order to set up the CobraNet parameters
using the CobraNet Manager.
These connections are made specifically to set up the CobraNet parameters, and can be
changed later to suit system requirements.
Example 1: Simultaneous Setup of Multiple MY16-CII cards
The switching hub to which the MY16-CII cards are connected is connected to the computer via
an Ethernet straight cable.

1.2. CobraNet Manager Startup and Initial Settings
Once the computer and MY16-CII have been connected, from the [Start] menu click [All
Programs] -> [CobraNet Manager Lite Yamaha V1.1] to launch the CobraNet Manager.
The “Preferences” window shown below will appear the first time you launch the CobraNet
Manager. Follow the procedure outlined below to make the initial settings.
Figure 3: “Preferences” Window
CobraNet Manager Lite for Yamaha Owner’s Manual
5
Note: The “Preferences” window can be opened after the CobraNet Manager has been launched
by selecting [General Preferences] from the [Setup] menu.
Network Adaptor Setup
1.
Select the network adaptor (primary network) connected to the MY16-CII from the “Select
primary network adaptor” selection box.
2.
Select “None” or a secondary network (a backup network that will take over if the primary
network connection is interrupted) adaptor from the “Select secondary network adaptor”
selection box.
Note: The CobraNet Manager can be used even if secondary network is not selected. Be sure to
select “None” if no secondary network will be used.
IP Address Setup
In order to set the bundle number and other CobraNet parameters using the CobraNet Manager,
it is necessary to assign IP addresses to the MY16-CII cards. The CobraNet Manager has a
function that will automatically assign IP numbers, which can normally be used as follows.
Note: It is not necessary to assign IP addresses if the CobraNet Manager will not be used.
1.
The range over which IP address will be automatically assigned is specified by the “IP
Range Start” and “IP Range End” parameters. IP addresses having the same network
address as the computer but different host addresses will be assigned.
Note: The first time the CobraNet Manager is launched the IP address range is automatically set
based on the computer’s IP address (network address and host address). If these settings are
acceptable they do not need to be changed.
Note: Be sure that the specified IP address range does not include the computer’s own IP
address.
If the computer IP address is 192.168.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
IP Range Start
192.168.0.2
IP Range End
192.168.0.253
If the computer IP address is 172.16.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0
IP Range Start
172.16.0.2
IP Range End
172.16.254.253

2.
Check the “Assign IP automatically to CobraNet devices” checkbox.
Note: The IP address that was assigned automatically is retained even if the power is turned off.
Moreover, IP addresses cannot be automatically re-assigned to the MY16-CII cards that already
have their own IP addresses. If you want to assign IP addresses manually, refer to page 15.
This completes setup for automatic assignment of IP addresses to MY16-CII cards.
Community String Setup
The “Default read community” should be set to “public”, and the “Default write community” to
“private”. These are the default settings when the CobraNet Manager is initially launched, so they
do not need to be changed.
Completion of Initial Setup
The above settings make it possible to control MY16-CII cards from the CobraNet Manager.
Click [OK] to close the “Preferences” window.

Bundle Numbers
Set the appropriate bundle numbers using one of the methods described below to allow transfer
of audio signals between transmitting and receiving devices.
„ Connecting Multiple MY16-CII Cards Only via Matrix View
This method selects the bundle numbers automatically and is only useful for setting up bundles
that will be transmitted and received between the MY16-CII cards displayed in the Matrix View.
1.
Click on the Matrix View to create a connection or “point,” as described below.
When a connection is created, bundle numbers are set for the transmitting and receiving
devices, allowing audio signal transfer. “Tx” is the transmit bundle and “Rx” is the receive
bundle. The numbers following Tx or Rx are the socket numbers that indicate the order of
the transmit and receive bundles.
When a new connection point is created, unicast bundles (black lines) are specified by default.
Note: Audio signals cannot be transferred if the latencies of the transmitting and receiving
devices differ. Set the same latency for both devices via the “Yamaha Device Settings” window
(page 16).
Figure 8: Matrix View
CobraNet Manager Lite for Yamaha Owner’s Manual
11
2.
To change a connection to multicast or multi-unicast bundles, click on the vertical line that
goes through the target connection point to open the bundle type editing window.
Note: Unicast bundles are only transmitted to single devices which have been set to the same
bundle number as the transmitting device. Multicast bundles are transmitted to all devices on the
network regardless of their settings, but only bundles with the specified bundle number(s) are
processed. For this reason, multicast bundles make heavy use of network bandwidth and it is
recommended that the maximum number of multicast bundles be limited to 4 (32 channels).
Multi-unicast bundles are only transmitted to up to four devices simultaneously, saving network
bandwidth compared to multicast bundles.
Figure 9: Bundle type editing window
3.
Click “Multicast” to change the connection to multicast, or “Multi-unicast” to change the
connection to multi-unicast.
This completes MY16-CII bundle setup. The MY16-CII can now be used for audio signal transfer.
For information on setting MY16-CII latency and other detailed settings skip ahead to “2. MY16CII Device Settings” on page 16.
„ Connecting MY16-CII Cards and Other CobraNet Devices via the Device Properties
Window
Bundle numbers can be set if the system includes devices not directly supported by the CobraNet
Manager (such as the MY16-C) by using the procedure described below.

2.3. Clock Synchronization Mode
Like the MY16-C, the MY16-CII provides three clock synchronization modes: Network Sync, Host
Sync 1, and Host Sync 2. The clock synchronization mode is automatically selected according to
the word clock status of the host device into which the MY16-CII is installed.
If the device into which the MY16-CII is installed receives its clock signal from the MY16-CII, the
MY16-CII will operate in Network Sync mode.

Note: When Conductor Priority is set to a value other than “Auto”, the value specified via the
CobraNet Manager takes priority.
Note: The MY16-C conductor priority is automatically set to the same values as the MY16-CII
according to the three available clock modes, but the MY16-C conductor priority setting cannot be
changed manually.
Conductor Priority Should Be Set Manually When...
With some types of connection, word clock loops may occur when Conductor Priority is set to
“Auto” resulting in network instability. In such cases set conductor priority to prevent the
occurrence of loops.

Figure 28: Conductor Priority needs to be set manually
In this example Conductor Priority is set to “Auto” so the MY16-CII installed in the DME64N
becomes a conductor and a word clock loop is created. To rectify this problem it is necessary to
either lower the conductor priority of the MY16-CII installed in the DME64 or raise the conductor
priority of the MY16-CII installed in the PM5D, thus preventing the MY16-CII installed in the
DME64N from functioning as conductor.
