Introduction
Introduction
Thank you for downloading the TF StageMix app (hereafter referred to as "StageMix") for iPad. StageMix allows you to use your
iPad to wirelessly control the parameters of your Yamaha TF series digital mixing console. StageMix gives the sound engineer the
freedom to control parameters of the TF series console from the stage, while listening to the results from the vantage point of the
performers. Because of its simple touch interface that offers a direct style of interaction with the console, we think you'll find that
StageMix will help you set up faster and more dynamically than ever before.
You can download the latest version of the TF series console firmware from the Yamaha Pro Audio website.

System compatibility information
Apple iPad 2 and later
iOS 8.0-10.x
Yamaha TF Series Digital Mixing Console V2.0 and later
Wireless access point (802.11g, 2.4GHz compatible, 802.11n, 5GHz recommended)

Wireless settings
Wireless settings
Configure your wireless access point, and refer to its operating instructions if necessary. Your wireless access point should not
require any special settings in order to use StageMix, however, we recommend that you configure the access point to require a
password for wireless connections for added security.
The following briefly describes the steps needed to configure your wireless access point.
1. Assign the desired wireless network name (also called an "SSID") to the wireless access point.
2. Select a wireless security protocol (WPA, WPA2, etc.) and assign a password to the wireless access point.
3. Configure the wireless access point to use the desired wireless mode (802.11g or 802.11n).
4. When using 802.11n, you may be able to select whether the access point uses the 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless band.
5. If your wireless access point supports Auto Channel Selection, enable it.
This allows the wireless access point to automatically select the wireless channel with the least amount of interference.
For the fastest wireless communication between the iPad and the wireless access point, we recommend configuring the access
point to use the 802.11n wireless mode at 5GHz. Additionally, using external antennas with your wireless access point (if supported)
will make wireless connections to the access point more reliable.

Preparation
Preparation
Configuring the console's network settings
1. Use a CAT5 Ethernet cable to connect the console to the wireless access point.
Older access points that do not support Auto MDI-X require that you connect the console using a crossover cable. For access points that
support Auto MDI-X (most do today), you can use either a straight cable or a crossover cable.
2. Make sure the Ethernet cable from the console is connect to a LAN port of the wireless access point.
Do not connect the console to the wireless access point's WAN port.
Configuring iPad network settings
You can configure the iPad to receive network settings via DHCP, or assign them manually.
Configuring iPad network settings using DHCP
DHCP is a network protocol that allows a device to receive its network settings from a DHCP server. Use the following procedure
to configure the iPad to use DHCP.
Operation
1. Open the [Settings] screen on the iPad.
2. Tap [Wi-Fi] and then select the network name (SSID) of your wireless access point.
3. Tap the blue mark to the right of the current network to display details about the network connection.
4. Tap [DHCP], and then confirm that the iPad has received settings for IP address, subnet mask, router, and DNS.
5. You can tap [Renew Lease] to force the iPad to receive the network settings from the DHCP server again.
6. When finished, press the home button on the iPad.
NOTE
• Make sure the subnet assigned to the iPad matches the subnet assigned to the console.
• If the iPad does not receive network settings from the DHCP server even after you tap [Renew Lease], check the settings of the DHCP server.
You can also configure network settings for the iPad manually.

Configuring iPad network settings manually
Operation
1. Open the [Settings] screen on the iPad.
2. Tap [Wi-Fi] and then select the network name (SSID) of your wireless access point.
3. Tap the blue mark to the right of the current network to display details about the network connection.
4. Tap [Static], and then configure each setting as described in the following steps.
5. IP address: Refer to the IP address of the console, and enter a comparable IP address by changing the last set of four
numbers.
For example, if the console's IP address is "192.168.0.128", you could assign "192.168.0.127" to the iPad.
6. Subnet mask: Enter "255.255.255.0".
7. Router: Enter the IP address of the wireless access point.
Typically this is printed on a label on the device itself or is listed in the device's operating instructions.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Wireless access point DHCP server setup
1 Use a web browser to access your wireless access point's web administrator page.
2 Enable the wireless access point's DHCP feature.
3 Configure the range of addresses that the DHCP feature will assign to connected devices.
4 Confirm that the IP address assigned to the console is outside of the range of IP addresses that the DHCP feature will assign to connected
devices. If it is within this range, change the IP address of the console.
For example, if the console's IP address is 192.168.1.2, set the DHCP feature to assign address beginning from 192.168.1.3.
NOTE
Not all wireless access points have a DHCP server feature. If yours does not, assign an IP address manually to the iPad.
If the console is not displayed in the SELECT MIXER screen
If your wireless access point's IGMP snooping feature is enabled, StageMix may not be able to find the console. Disable your
wireless access point's IGMP snooping feature and try again.
Using TF Editor and StageMix together
When computers (running TF Editor) and iPads (running TF StageMix) are connected to the console, the console supports up to
three simultaneous connections.
Only one computer running TF Editor can connect to the console at a time.
Internet connection error messages
When you select a wireless network using your iPad, your iPad may try to access the Internet. If your wireless access point cannot
connect to the Internet, a "cannot connect to the Internet" message may be displayed on your iPad and StageMix may not be able
to connect to the console. An Internet connection is not needed to connect StageMix to the console, however, you may need to
change the settings on your wireless access point so that this message is no longer displayed. If this message is displayed, typically
you will need to disable your wireless access point's "redirect feature". For details, refer to your device's operating instructions or
contact the manufacturer.
If you cannot move 4 or more faders at the same time
If the Multitasking Gestures setting of your iPad is turned on, you may not be able to move 4 or more faders at the same time. When
using StageMix, make sure to turn the Multitasking Gestures feature off.
1 Open the [Settings] screen on the iPad.
2 Tap [General] and then turn [Multitasking Gestures] off.
If you cannot move 3 or more faders at the same time
If the Zoom feature with the Accessibility settings of your iPad is turned on, you may not be able to move 3 or more faders at the
same time. When using StageMix, make sure to turn the Zoom feature off.
1 Open the [Settings] screen on the iPad.
2 Tap [General]  [Accessibility] and then turn [Zoom] off.
If RTA is not displayed
When you open the EQ screen for the first time, a message is displayed asking whether you want to use the iPad mic for RTA
