BUENA PARK, Calif.⎯Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced a new addition to the M7CL digital console product line. The M7CL-48ES, available in the spring of 2010, with its main I/O interface being the SB168-ES remote stage box, connects via a single Cat5 cable. The new console includes a built-in EtherSound interface with a third port for PC control and monitoring, eight Omni Ins (Mic/Line), eight Omni Outs, and three MY card slots. The M7CL-48ES supports up to three SB168-ES stage boxes and, like the M7CL-48, can mix up to 48 mono plus 4 stereo inputs to 16 Mix Buses, 8 Matrix Outs, Stereo and Mono Outputs. The new Stage Box Quick Set up feature provides plug-and-play connection of up to three SB168-ES units.

“Using the I/O within the SB168-ES stage boxes will provide end users with up to 48 remotely controllable mic preamps and 24 outputs,? states Kevin Kimmel, Mixer Product Manager. Utilizing the onboard Omni Inputs and Outputs brings the number of mixable channels to 56 and 27 Outputs. “The M7CL-48ES is physically laid out much the same as the original M7CL-48, so for those users who are familiar with the M7CL, they will immediately feel comfortable on the new console.?

With the built-in EtherSound interface, the M7CL-48ES gains all the benefits of a digital network infrastructure while allowing the card slots to be used for other purposes, such as personal monitoring systems and recording outputs.

Because the new M7CL-48ES console runs the same software as standard M7CL consoles, there is direct file compatibility between all M7CL models. And, new Version 3 software updates, available in coming weeks, will include Direct Sends on Fader access from the M7CL knobs in Sends on Fader mode, Sends on Fader in M7CL Editor; new Recall Safe parameters (Input Patch, Output Patch, Direct Out Patch, Insert Out Patch); inclusion of VCM Effects (Comp 276/276s, Comp 260/260s, Open Deck, EQ601); additionally, Omni In 1-8 can be used for Talkback.

The new console consumes even less power, 50% less to be exact (150w vs. 300w). Other new features include on board analog insertion via Omni In/Out and added Output Port Delay for each EtherSound output.

The new M7CL-48ES has a targeted MSRP of $21,499.
