Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems Launches CL Series Digital Consoles


BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced the launch of the new CL Series of digital consoles. The three consoles are making their official debut today at the ProLight+Sound Expo in Frankfurt, Germany. The Yamaha CL Series is a Dante network-based console featuring remote I/O for a faster, more responsive Yamaha system solution. All three CL models in the Centralogic™ series, only differentiated by frame size and input capability, feature 24 mix buses, 8 matrix buses, plus stereo and mono outputs, and 16 DCAs. The footprint of all three CL consoles is small, yet powerful and has been developed specifically for sound reinforcement applications such as performing arts venues, theaters, houses of worship, touring, and remote broadcast. The high output bus count will be a great benefit to live broadcast and monitor applications.

The Yamaha CL5 mix capacity is 72 mono + 8 stereo inputs (64 channels through Dante and 8 local), with 34 faders (16 on the left, 8 Centralogic, and 8 right plus stereo and mono masters). The CL5 also includes built-in output metering. The CL3 is a 64 mono input system, with 8 stereo inputs, and 26 faders (16 left, 8 Centralogic center, plus masters). The CL1 console is a 48-mono + 8 stereo inputs, and 16 faders plus two master faders (8 left and 8 Centralogic center, plus masters). All models feature 16 DCAs, channel encoders and support 48kHz and 44.1kHz sampling rates. An optional meter bridge is available for the CL3 and CL1 consoles. The CL5 and CL3 feature a built-in shelf for an iPad, and the CL1 has a shelf for an iPod.

All CL consoles are configured with a top panel center section with a comprehensive selected channel section, a new 16-bit color LED back-lit touch screen, four User-Defined Knobs, a built-in help system, 2-track USB recorder/player section, and much more. The CL Series features 16 31-band GEQs, an 8U effects rack and a new 8U Premium Rack including Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5043 Compressor and Portico 5033 EQ as well as new Yamaha VCM compressors and EQs. Rupert Neve, who approved the 5033 and 5043 in the Premium Rack during its initial evaluation, called it ‘very sweet sounding’ and ‘indistinguishable from its hardware equivalent’.

Up to eight external Rio (Remote I/O) boxes can be used for a total of 256 channels via the Dante digital network. The 5U rack space Rio3224-D includes 32 remote controlled mic/line inputs, 16 line outputs, and four AES-3 outs. The 3U Rio1608-D includes 16 remote controlled mic/line inputs and eight line outputs. Dante network I/O can easily be set up and patched utilizing familiar paradigms within the console user interface, with no external software required for network operations

Additional console features include simultaneous CL Editor/StageMix connection, multi-track recording via Dante Virtual Soundcard software, and File Converter Software for CL, PM5D, M7CL and LS9 consoles. A new recording software from Steinberg dubbed “Nuendo Live”, optimized for live recording and playback transport, will also be bundled with the console. CL Editor for Mac and PC as well as StageMix for iPad will be available for the series free of charge.

“The CL Series sets a new standard in terms of sound quality, flexibility and usability for mixing professionals,” states Larry Italia, Vice President/General Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “We appreciate the loyalty of our customers and are excited by the possibilities the CL Series will afford mixing engineers.”

The fader sections of all CL consoles features new self-lit key tops, channel name and color bar visible in sunlight, new fader caps and a smoother drive circuit. The Centralogic section also features Undo and Preview keys for Scene Memory, fader bank select, and 16 user defined keys.

The CL console’s back panel consists of dual Dante ports, 3 MY card slots, work clock I/O, MIDI I/O, AES/EBU digital out, 8 Analog Omni ins/outs, 5-in/5-out GPI, and an external PW800W PSU connection.

Targeted MSRP for the Yamaha CL5, CL3, and CL1 is $27,499, $21,999 and $14,999, respectively. The Rio3224-D has a targeted MSRP of $8,499 and the Rio1608-D has a targeted MSRP of $4,799. The optional meter bridge for the CL3 and CL1 has a targeted MSRP $1,199.

The Yamaha CL5 and Rio3224-D will be available in late Spring 2012, and the CL3, CL1, and Rio1608-D will be available in late summer 2012.

Yamaha StageMix Version 3 Takes a Bow


BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced a major update for the StageMix iPad App available for Yamaha M7CL and LS9 digital consoles. StageMix Version 3 enables even greater control and ease-of-use in live sound and sound reinforcement applications such as houses of worship and performing arts centers. StageMix Version 3 makes its official debut today at ProLight+Sound in Frankfurt.

In 2010, Yamaha released the first application of the StageMix iPad App for the M7CL console, allowing engineers to quickly adjust monitor mixes from the performance position onstage or anywhere in the audience immediately hearing the effects of the adjustments. In 2011, the Company released a similar StageMix iPad App for use with the LS9 console. The StageMix App provides greater control and flexibility for both digital mixing consoles and enables the mixing engineer to freely adjust console parameters and sound levels by wireless control, rather than at the mix position.

New functions for StageMix V3 include: Mute Group Masters; Channel Naming;
Channel Pan; Send Levels in Meter Bridge; Tap Tempo; Edit Mixer Setting (i.e. IP and MAC Addresses); Bank Navigation in Long Faders mode; Selectable Input and Output Meter Positions; EQ Type I / II button in EQ screen; HPF ON button is always available in EQ screen; and DCA Faders (M7CL only).

“As we celebrate our 25th year in providing high-quality digital technology products, we continue to be at the forefront of developing high-performance products for our customers and end users,” states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “With input from our customers based on their needs and feedback, the combination of StageMix Version 3 with an M7CL or LS9 will provide even greater flexibility and convenience when making important and necessary mix adjustments.”

StageMix Version 3 for the M7CL or LS9 will be available in April 2012 and can be downloaded free of charge via the Apple iTunes Store.

For more information on StageMix Version 3, visit Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. at the NAB 2012 Show on April 16, booth #C2239 or via the web at www.yamahaca.com.

MUSICAL POLYMATH JACK HALE DOTES ON METRIC HALO

jack_hale.JPGSAFETY HARBOR FLORIDA – MARCH 2012: Jack Hale does it all, and he does it all well. An instrumentalist, a musician, a composer, an engineer, and a producer, Hale has enjoyed a storybook career. Inspired by the successful and meaningful lives of his father and uncle, musicians both, Hale took up the trumpet at thirteen and quickly obtained a virtuosic proficiency that earned him a place in the music department at the University of Memphis. Hale befriended John Fry and Joe Hardy, and they gave him the keys to Ardent Studio to use as he wished in the off hours. Meanwhile, Hale was selected as the trumpet player in the Memphis Horns and had a hit single to his credit at the tender age of twenty (on Al Green’s “Full Of Fire”). While touring as a trumpet player with Johnny Cash, Cash recognized Hale’s more

ITS AURA AGLOW, SYMETRIX SOLUS 8 PROCESSOR PROVIDES THE SONIC SOUL FOR FASHIONABLE PHILADELPHIA RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA – MARCH 2012: Aura Restaurant & Lounge recently opened in Philadelphia and, without wasting a moment, placed itself at the vanguard of the city’s hip and happening night life. Claiming two floors in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood, Aura is, like its clientele, dressed to the nines. But instead of sharp suits and tight dresses, Aura teases with futuristic LED lighting, HD plasma screens, and hip, modern décor. Of course, hearts race when Aura kicks up the music from one or both of the elevated DJ booths, and compliant bodies move to the rhythms. Aura hired Pro Systems from nearby Cherry Hill, New Jersey to breathe fire into its sound reinforcement system, and they responded by providing Aura with an unfalteringly stable Symetrix Solus 8, a processor that’s heavy on fidelity and possessed of a deep musical soul.

“We’ve been installing Symetrix processors of various types for several more

API 1608 INSTALLED IN BELGIUM STUDIO

pieter_apers.JPGBRUSSELS, BELGIUM – MARCH 2012: Brussels-based Studio La Buanderie has recently installed a 16-channel API 1608 – a console that its owner and engineer, Pieter Apers, calls, “the holy grail in recording.” Apers purchased the fully-analog console through API dealer Amptec, who is credited with quickly bringing multiple 1608 consoles into Belgium.

“I have always been an audio enthusiast, so I have known about API for a very long time,” said Apers. But when I was choosing a console for my studio, I considered a number of alternatives. To be fair, some others offer deeper DAW integration and more bells and whistles than the 1608. However, when it comes to sound and sheer build quality there is no doubt – the 1608 stands high above the others.”

Apers founded Studio La Buanderie in his home eight years ago to fulfill a longtime more
