Yamaha CL StageMix V7 User Guide
Welcome:
Thank you for downloading the “CL StageMix” iPad app for the Yamaha CL series
digital mixing consoles.
The latest firmware version for CL series can be downloaded from
https://www.yamaha.com/proaudio/
StageMix is an application for the Apple iPad that provides remote control of Yamaha
CL series digital mixing console functions via a simple, intuitive graphical interface
from anywhere within wireless range. The software has been specifically designed to
allow engineers to adjust monitor mixes from the performers’ positions on stage,
directly controlling mix parameters via the iPad rather than having to rely on verbal
directions to a second engineer. The result is better mixes in less time; a huge
advantage during high-pressure pre-show setup. Although StageMix is focused on
the requirements for adjusting monitor mixes on stage, its range of features is
continually expanding, allowing it to be used for a wider variety of remote control
functions.
Note: iOS applications may not be supported in your area. Please check with your
Yamaha dealer.

1.0 System Requirements
•
•
•
•
•
Apple iPad (any model using iOS 8 or higher)
Yamaha CL series digital mixing console with V4.0, V4.1, V4.5 or V5.0
firmware
Wi-Fi access point (802.11g, n or ac)
CAT5 cable (to connect the console to a Wi-Fi access point)
iOS: iOS 8.0 -11.x
2.0 Wi-Fi Settings
Configure the Wi-Fi access point, following the manufacturer’s instructions. No
special settings are needed, but using security such as WPA is highly recommended,
to prevent unwanted devices from joining the network. Here are some suggested
settings to assist less experienced Wi-Fi users:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Give the wireless network a name (this is the “SSID”).
Choose a security mode (such as WPA) and password.
Select the wireless mode (802.11g, n or ac).
In the case of “n”, select the wireless band (2.4 or 5GHz).
If available, enable “Auto Channel Selection” so the wireless channel with the
least interference will be selected.
Using a Wi-Fi access point with 2 or more external aerials is recommended to
increase potential signal range. Booster aerials could be connected for a further
increase in performance.

3.2.3 Network switching (V7.0 and later)
If using iOS 9.3 and later with CL StageMix V7.0 and later, you can
connect to a network using a wired connection in addition to a wireless
connection. A Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter and USB Ethernet
Adapter are required to use a wired connection.
You can switch between a wireless and wired connection when offline;
you cannot switch while online.

CL StageMix V7 User Guide
StageMix Setup
Launch the “CL StageMix” App
The “Select Mixer” screen will appear. From this screen, you can do any of
the following things:
•
•
•
Access the OFFLINE DEMO mode to explore the features and user
interface of CL StageMix.
Configure StageMix to work with a CL console.
Select a CL console that has already been configured to work with your
iPad and begin using StageMix.
3.3.1 OFFLINE DEMO
If [OFFLINE DEMO] is pressed in the “Select Mixer” screen, the
functions of StageMix will operate independently of any mixing console.
It is a useful way to demonstrate and learn how to use the app without
the need for a mixer. Level meters and most Scene Memory functions
do not work in this mode.
3.3.2 Configure StageMix to Work with a CL series Console
i.
Press [ADD MIXER] to open the following screen:
Page 11
Yamaha Professional Audio
CL StageMix V7 User Guide
ii. Tap on the blank Name field and enter a name for your CL series
console using the iPad’s onscreen keyboard.
iii. Enter the CL series console’s IP address noted in 3.1. The default IP
Address may not need to be changed but confirm this in the Network
Setup screen of the CL series console (refer to 3.1). If you need to
modify the IP Address in StageMix, make sure you include the dots
between the sets of numbers (as shown above). If the entered console
IP address is in a compatible range with the iPad’s current IP address
(displayed beneath), a green tick will be displayed to the right of the
console IP address. If the entered IP address is in-compatible range
with the current IP address of the iPad, a red cross is displayed –
please enter a console IP address in a compatible range.
Please note, having a green tick displayed does not mean that the
entered console IP address for the console is accurate or that the
console has been automatically detected. Please check the console for
the currently assigned IP address to ensure that the correct address is
being entered into StageMix.
iv. Select the Model of CL series console.
v. Press the [ADD MIXER] button at the bottom of the screen.
vi. For reference, the currently assigned IP address of the iPad is
displayed beneath the console model buttons.
Note: From StageMix V6 onwards, it is no longer necessary to enter the
console MAC Address.

CL StageMix V7 User Guide
3.3.3 Select a Mixer
If your iPad has been configured to work with a CL series console,
select the mixer from the list. (The model of mixer (CL1, CL3 or CL5)
will appear in smaller text below the mixer’s name.)
3.3.4 Connect and Synchronize with the CL Console
Click the [CONNECT] button to connect to the console and begin the
synchronization process.
The message “Syncing With CL…” will appear while StageMix is
obtaining parameters from the console. After this process is complete,
the Mixer window will appear and StageMix is ready to be used.
Up to 5 iPads running StageMix can be connected to the console
simultaneously.
If StageMix cannot connect with your console, refer to the
Troubleshooting section (11.0) at the end of this document for possible
solutions.
3.3.5 Edit Mixer Configurations
The parameters of a saved Mixer Configuration can be viewed and
edited by tapping the right arrow button next to a mixer’s name. This
will open the Edit Mixer screen which allows the Name and IP Address
to be verified and edited using the procedures described in section
3.3.2. After editing, press [SAVE MIXER] to save any changes.

meters, and channel names and colors for eight adjacent channels.
Across the top of the screen, level meters and faders are displayed in blocks
of channels for mono Input Channels 1-32, Stereo Input Channels 1-8, Mix
and Matrix busses, and the Master Stereo and Mono busses. This is the
“Navigation/Meter Bridge”.
From StageMix Version 7, there is a new option in the Navigation/Meter
Bridge to access the “Custom Fader Layer” view. Refer to section 4.2.1 for
details.
4.1
Channel Bank Navigation
Press any of the “Navigation/Meter Bridge” blocks to select the bank of
channels to be viewed and controlled in the channel strips below.
4.2

Please note – Multi-Channel Patching uses consecutive channels and input
port sources of the same input port type. It is not possible to select multiple
ranges of input channels or different input port types for a Multi-Channel patch
operation.
The number of input channels that can be patched in a Multi-Patch operation
is limited by the starting channel and input port number. I.e. If the start point
for the Multi-patch is ch40 and the console has 48 input channels, the
maximum number of channels that can be entered using the keypad will be 9
as that the number of remaining channels above the starting channel of the
multi-channel patch.
Page 29
Yamaha Professional Audio
CL StageMix V7 User Guide
If there is a limited number of input ports available for the selected input port
type above the starting port, this will also limit the number of channels that can
be patched. i.e. If Dante input 50 is selected as the starting port for the MultiPatch, the maximum number of channels that can be patched is 15, as there
are 15 Dante ports available including and above the selected port (Dante IN
50 to 64).

EQ
Every channel in the CL series console has a dedicated Parametric EQ
(PEQ). CL series consoles also have Graphic EQs (GEQs) that can be
assigned (inserted) on input or output channels. 8-Band PEQ can also be
used as an alternative to a GEQ.
Note: assignment of GEQs to channels and mounting of 8-Band PEQs in the
GEQ Rack must be done on the console and cannot be done in StageMix.
5.1.1 EQ Curve in Mixer Window
The EQ curve section on the Mixer Window will show the user whether
a GEQ or 8-Band PEQ is available on any channel. If a GEQ or 8-Band
PEQ is available on a channel in addition to the dedicated 4-Band PEQ,
the user will be able to view the curve for any of these EQs and access
the editing screen for any type of EQ.
Green and blue dots below each EQ curve indicate the types of EQ
available on that channel, the insert position for the GEQ or 8-Band
PEQ, and the type of EQ that is currently displayed for that channel. A
green dot indicates PEQ and a blue dot indicates GEQ. When only the
dedicated 4-Band PEQ is currently available on a channel, no dots will
appear below the curve.
Every channel in a CL console has two insert points and GEQs or 8Band PEQs can be inserted into either of these points. A blue or green
dot in the middle of the EQ thumbnail area represents a GEQ or 8-Band
PEQ in Insert 1. A blue or green dot on the right side represents a GEQ
or 8-Band PEQ in Insert 2. The green dot for dedicated 4-Band PEQ will
always be on the left side of the thumbnail area.

11.0 Troubleshooting
11.1
No Wi-Fi Available
If this message appears after launching StageMix, this indicates that the iPad
is not connected to a Wi-Fi access point or that Wi-Fi may be switched off in
the iPad. Refer to sections 2.0 and 3.2 for details about Wi-Fi hardware
configuration and iPad Wi-Fi settings.
11.2
Connection Error
If this message appears after selecting a mixer and pressing [CONNECT], this
indicates that StageMix cannot connect to the console. This may be due to
incorrect IP Address settings in either the console or StageMix. Verify that the
settings in the console match the settings in StageMix. Refer to 3.1 and 3.3.2
for details about these settings. This problem will also occur if the console is
not turned On.
Page 90
Yamaha Professional Audio
CL StageMix V7 User Guide
11.3
Connection Lost
If StageMix loses its connection to the console, the following message will
appear. Operation of StageMix is not possible while this message box is
onscreen. StageMix will automatically attempt to reconnect to the console.
If this is successful, StageMix will re-synchronize with the console data and
operation will become available again.
11.4
DHCP Server Setup on WAP/Router
a) Log onto the web control page of your Wireless Access Point or Router
using a web browser.
b) Enable the DHCP server.
c) Set the upper and lower limits of the IP addresses the DHCP server can
assign.
d) Ensure your console’s IP address is outside this range, or reverse its IP
address (e.g. DHCP range 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.127 when the
console’s IP address is 192.168.0.128)
Note: not all Wireless Access Points will feature a DHCP Server. In those
cases, please setup your iPad using a Static IP Address.
11.5
Using StageMix with CL Editor
If DHCP is used on the iPad and the CL Editor is being used simultaneously,
care must be taken with regard to the IP address of the computer used for the
Editor. In this case, it may be necessary to use DHCP on the computer rather
than a Static IP Address.

CL StageMix V7 User Guide
“Redirect to Internet” Problem with iOS 6 or higher
Since the release of iOS 6 or higher, your iPad may try to access the Internet
at the time of selecting a Wi-Fi network. Depending on the set-up or model of
your Wi-Fi device (Router or Access Point), the message "cannot connect with
the Internet" may appear on your iPad screen and StageMix might be unable
to connect with a console.
Internet access is unnecessary for the connection between StageMix and
console and it is recommended that you should not have an internet
connection when using StageMix. So if you experience this problem, you can
prevent this message from appearing by disabling the "Redirect Function for
Internet connection" in your Wi-Fi device. Please ask the Wi-Fi device
manufacturer about the way to disable "Redirect Function for Internet
connection".
11.7
Graphic EQ Doesn’t Affect the Sound
If a Graphic EQ is assigned to an input channel or Mix/Matrix bus but it doesn’t
seem to be affecting the sound on that channel, it could be that the Insert for
that channel has been switched Off. Check the state of the Insert ON switch
in the console.
11.8
Problems Moving Multiple Faders
If Multitasking Gestures is ON, it may not be possible to move more than three
faders simultaneously in StageMix. When using StageMix, it is recommended that
