connection. Improper grounding can result in electrical shock.
Fire warning
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item
may fall over and cause a fire.
Do not open
If you notice any abnormality
• The device contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not open the device or
attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and
have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the power
switch and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. Then have the

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 place the device in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• 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 block the vents. This device has ventilation holes at the front and
rear to prevent the internal temperature from rising too high. In particular,
do not place the device on its side or upside down, or place it in any
poorly-ventilated location, such as a bookcase or closet.

Maintenance
Backup battery
• Remove the power plug from the AC outlet when cleaning the device.
Handling caution
• Do not insert your fingers or hand in any gaps or openings on the device
(vents, ports, etc.).
• Avoid inserting or dropping foreign objects (paper, plastic, metal, etc.) into
any gaps or openings on the device (vents, ports, etc.) 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.
• 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.
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 remaining capacity of the backup
battery becomes so low that it needs to be replaced a “Low Battery”
or “No Battery” message will appear on the display during operation
or when the device is powered on. If either of these messages
appears do not turn off the power and immediately transfer any data
you want to save to a computer or other external 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.
• Device parameters (SLOT, HA, UTILITY, Master Mute/Level, etc.).
• Event log.
Data items other than those described above are stored in memory
that does not require backup power, and will be retained even if the
backup battery fails.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the device, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Do not turn the [POWER] switch on and off repeatedly and rapidly. Be sure to wait six seconds or more between turning the
power to the unit off and then on.
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 qualified Yamaha service personnel about replacing defective components.
NOTICE
To avoid the possibility of damage to the product, data or other property, follow the notices below.
 Handling and Maintenance
• Do not use the device in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment,
mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the device, TV, or radio
may generate noise.
• 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 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.
• 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.

audio I/O channels. The DME24N can handle up to 24 audio I/O channels.
The DME64N has approximately double the DSP processing power of the DME24N.
DME64N/24N Features
Introduction to the DME64N/24N
In addition to basic mixing and matrix output functions, the DME64N/24N includes a equalizers, compressors, delay, etc. – that can be patched together via DME Designer to configure just about any audio system
you need.
Audio System Network
Multiple DME series units that are interconnected in a network via Ethernet function as a single audio system.
In a DME audio system, a group of the same models that can be operated in sync is called a “device group;”
audio processing divisions that accommodate multiple device groups are called “zones;” and the entire
area serviced by the acoustic system is called an “area.”
Each device group always includes one DME series unit that functions as the “group master” and controls
all other DME series units in the same device group.
If a computer is connected to the network, you can use the computer to control an entire device group via
the group master.
Glossary for the DME64N/24N
This section explains terminology specific to the DME64N/24N.
Components and parameters
The individual audio processing modules (equalizers, compressors, etc.) are called “components.”
External head amplifier control modules are also available as components.
Changing the parameters of components enables control over the operation of the components.
Configuration
A “configuration” is a complete set of components for constructing an audio system.
Each configuration determines the audio function(s) of the corresponding DME64N/24N unit.
All parameter sets included with each component in a configuration are called “preset parameters.”
One DME64N/24N unit has a number of configurations, and a configuration has a number of preset parameters.
User Defined buttons
Assigning parameters to be User Defined Buttons enables you to control the device from the ICP1 and the
DME64N/DME24N.
Refer to the DME Designer Owner’s Manual for details.

Signal Types
Signal Types
DME64N/24N audio system signals can be broadly categorized as follows.
1 Audio
The DME64N/24N will be required to send and receive audio signals to and from other DME series units as
well as other audio equipment.
Audio signal transmission and reception will occur primarily via the [INPUT] and [OUTPUT] connectors on
the DME24N.
2 Control signals within a device group
Introduction to the DME64N/24N
Device group control signals control all DME series devices in the group.
There are two types of device group control signals, as follows:
• Control signals between the computer and the group master DME series unit
• Control signals between the group master DME series unit and the other DME series units
You can use the DME Designer application to control the entire device group, such as sending components
to the devices and setting the parameters as required.
3 Control signals between devices outside the device group
These signals provide communication and control between individual devices.
Included in this category are MIDI messages transferred between [USB] connectors, GPI signals transferred between [GPI] connectors, and remote head amp control signals handled via the [REMOTE] connector.

About DME Designer
About DME Designer
DME64N/DME24N Owner’s Manual
Introduction to the DME64N/24N
DME Designer software enables you to integrate, configure, and control the DME series system from a connected computer.
You can build the DME series audio system using graphic blocks in DME Designer that are displayed on
the computer monitor.
The DME series settings, configuration, and parameter data are transferred from the computer to the DME
series unit via the USB or Ethernet connection.
DME series settings, configuration, and parameter data is sent via USB or Ethernet to the connected DME
series unit. After the data is transmitted, you can disconnect the DME series unit from the computer and use
it as an independent processor.
You can also connect it to a computer and control it in realtime from DME Designer.
If multiple DME series units are connected in the network, DME Designer enables you to build a configuration that includes those units.
Please download the DME Designer application, driver, DME setup manual, and DME Designer Owner’s
Manual at the following URL: http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/
Refer to the “Connecting to a Computer” (page 22) for more information on connecting a computer to the
DME64N/24N. For details on how to install DME Designer and the drivers that are required for connection,
refer to the “DME Setup Manual.”

Cascade Connection ([Cascade] Connectors) (DME64N only)
The rear-panel [CASCADE] connector can be connected to the [CASCADE] connector on another
DME64N/24N or other compatible device via a dedicated cascade cable for bidirectional transfer of
control, audio, and word clock signals. The communication direction automatically switches to
unidirectional when connecting to a mixer such as the PM5D, or bidirectional when connecting to another
DME64N/24N unit.
Up to eight DME64N units can be cascade connected.
In the unidirectional mode the audio signal flow is from the [CASCADE OUT] connector to the [CASCADE
IN] connector. For bidirectional communication the data flows in both directions within a single cable, and
input on the same channel from other DME64N units is summed (bus sharing). The total number of audio
channels that can be connected to a mixer or DME64N/24N unit is 32.
Word clock is continuously output from both the [CASCADE IN] and [CASCADE OUT] connectors, and is
received by the corresponding [CASCADE IN] or [CASCADE OUT] connector on the connected device.
In all cases the [CASCADE OUT] of one device must be connected to the [CASCADE IN] connector of the
other. Do not connect [CASCADE IN] to [CASCADE IN], or [CASCADE OUT] to [CASCADE OUT].
NOTE
Maximum length by the optional dedicated Cascade cables
Unidirectional Cascade connection: 200m (44.1/48kHz), 100m (88.2/96kHz)

NOTE
It is also possible to remotely control DME series units from the PM5D via a CASCADE connection. In such
cases assign the nearest DME64N unit to the PM5D as the device group master. When using a DME64N/24N
together with the DME Satellite, you must assign the DME Satellite as the master.
Another method of remotely controlling a DME series from a PM5D is via CobraNet connections to MY16-C or
MY16-CII cards.
All DME series units to be controlled from the PM5D must be in the same device group, and the host address
of the device group master must be set to “2.” However, if the PM5D is version 2.20 or higher and the DME
Satellite is version 3.07 or higher, you can set the parameter to any number.
For information on the PM5D DME CONTROL function refer to the PM5D/PM5D-RH Owner’s Manual or to the

NOTE
The gain of the DME24N internal head amplifiers can be
adjusted from +10 dB to –60 dB in 1-dB increments. The
internal circuitry switches at about the –45-dB point, and
the signal is automatically muted at that point to prevent
noise.
The AD8HR gain can be adjusted from +10 dB to –62 dB
in 1-dB steps, and the AD824 gain can be adjusted from
+10 dB to –62 dB in 6-dB steps.
The PAD will be internally switched on or off when the
gain of the DME24N built-in head amplifier is adjusted
between -8 dB and -7 dB. Keep in mind that noise may
be generated if there is a difference between the Hot

1.1 Scene Change
Scene recall occurs according to the “MIDI Program Change Table” assignments when appropriate MIDI
Bank Select MSB/LSB and Program Change messages are received by the DME64N/24N.
Corresponding MIDI Bank Select MSB/LSB and Program Change messages are also transmitted by the
DME64N/24N when a scene recall operation is carried out via the panel controls, as specified by the “MIDI
Program Change Table” assignments.
Transmission does not occur when switching Configurations.
1.2 Parameter Control
MIDI Control Change and Parameter Change messages transmitted to the DME64N/24N can be used to
control parameters according to the “MIDI Control Change table” and “MIDI Parameter Change Table”
assignments.
Corresponding MIDI Control Change and Parameter Change messages are also transmitted by the
DME64N/24N when a parameter is edited out via the panel controls, as specified by the “MIDI Control
Change table” and “MIDI Parameter Change Table” assignments.

Messages Transmitted When Multiple Messages are Assigned to the Same Parameter
The DME64N/24N MIDI transmit messages are specified via the “MIDI Control Change Table” and “MIDI
Parameter Change Table.” The “MIDI Control Change Table” and “MIDI Parameter Change Table” can be
set up via the DME Designer application.
Multiple messages can be assigned to a single parameter, but the DME64N/24N will only transmit one of
the assigned messages.
The transmitted messages are as follows:
• If a Control Change message and a Parameter Change message are assigned to the same parameter 
the Control Change message will be transmitted.
• If multiple Control Change numbers are assigned to the same parameter  the smallest Control Change
number message will be transmitted.
• If multiple Parameter Change numbers are assigned to the same parameter  the smallest Parameter
Change number message will be transmitted.

parameters. Up to 999 scenes can be stored for each device group in a DME64N/24N
audio system.
STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) Cable
A data transmission cable consisting of a shielded twisted pair. This type of cable is more
resistant to noise and interference than UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) cable.
Network Switch
A network switch which automatically connects only ports through which communication is
currently taking place. This reduces network load while maximizing security. This type of
switch can often mediate between devices having different transmission speeds and
standards.
