The Best Listening Position is the Best Control Position
StageMix is an iPad application that allows CL, M7CL, and LS9 series digital mixing console parameters to be controlled wirelessly from anywhere in the venue. From audience seating, performer positions on stage, or anywhere that gives the engineer an accurate idea of the final sound. It’s a great way to set up monitor sound on stage while communicating directly with the performers, for example. Setup time is reduced, and overall sound quality is improved.
Editor applications that allow console setup from Windows or Mac computers are also available. In addition to full control of console parameters, these applications facilitate overall management of scene data and patch lists, and they make text entry for channel names, for example, faster and easier too.
Console File Converter
The Yamaha Console File Converter is a utility application that provides data compatibility between PM5D, M7CL, LS9, and CL/QL series digital mixing consoles. Mix data created on any of the listed consoles can be quickly and easily transferred to any other, making equipment changes effortless and providing a greater range of equipment choices for any show in any venue.
Linking to External Equipment via GPI and MIDI
All Yamaha digital mixing consoles include MIDI I/O capability that make it possible to recall scene memories or control specific faders from an external device, for example. It is also possible to connect multiple consoles via MIDI for synchronized scene recall. PM5D and CL/QL series consoles additionally feature GPI terminals that can be used for trigger I/O with a wide variety of external equipment. Fader start/stop, talkback on/off, and scene switching are just a few examples. The ability to work seamlessly with external equipment is liberating, if not essential, in many live sound situations.
The seamless integration of Yamaha’s CL/QL Series consoles with Shure’s Digital Wireless - ULXD4D, ULXD4Q, AXT400, QLXD4, and ULXD4 - equips audio professionals everywhere with the intuitive tools they need to handle sound reinforcement applications of any size.
It allows monitoring of battery, RF reception strength, antenna status, frequency and audio level on the panel of CL/QL series. In addition, ULXD4D and ULXD4Q can be controlled of gain, mute and channel name assignment.
Personal monitor systems give the performers on stage control over their own monitor mix. Products from Aviom, a pioneer in the field, work with Yamaha digital mixing consoles to provide maximum monitoring flexibility.
Personal Monitoring with MonitorMix
The MonitorMix application for the CL/QL/TF Series allows individual wireless monitor mixing from up to 10 devices simultaneously. Each performer can have convenient control over the MIX/AUX buses assigned to them, without having to deal with complex settings or parameters. They can also create personal Group settings for even easier adjustment: all instrument levels on just one fader, for example.

MonitorMix can enhance your workflow, bring freedom and fun to your mix.
Personal Monitoring with Yamaha and Aviom
The AVIOM 16/O-Y1 is an A-Net interface card that connects Aviom personal monitor systems to Yamaha digital mixing consoles. Personal monitor systems allow the performers to control the balance of the monitor sound they hear to suit their individual needs. The performers can increase or decrease the level of channels in a monitor mix provided by the monitor engineer, or create a personal mix from scratch if no monitor engineer is present. This reduces demands on both the performers and monitor engineer while providing a better, more flexible monitor environment.
