Yamaha Cl-1 digital Mixer
The pursuit of perfection is ongoing and will probably never end, but along
the way Yamaha has introduced a number of innovations that have become
industry standards oering performance and familiarity that discerning users
continue to demand. By denition, “standards” are best kept as they are. With
evolutionary renements, of course.
Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles represent a new level of renement.
They oer an evolved experience in accessible mixing, plus sonic purity with
sound shaping capabilities that will give the most imaginative engineer
unprecedented creative freedom. The CL series embodies the leading
standards in live sound in their most advanced, most expressive form.
Dual 8-fader sections in a space-saving
console that can be used alone or cascaded
to another CL console for input expansion.
• Input channels: 48 mono, 8 stereo.
• Fader configuration: 8-fader left section, 8-fader
Centralogic section, 2-fader master section .
• Meter bridge optional.

The CL Series EQ and effects have been vastly expanded. They include an Effect Rack that features VCM analog circuitry modeling technology, as well as a Premium Rack that includes the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5033 equalizer and Portico 5043 compressor/limiter, developed in close cooperation with Rupert Neve himself. Yamaha began working with Rupert Neve Designs in 2010, developing devices based on Yamaha’s VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology. Rupert Neve had this to say about the outstanding quality of the VCM models of the Portico 5033 Equalizer and Portico 5043 Compressor: “This is a very exciting time, because for the first time we have the capability of bringing Rupert Neve sound into the live sound field. This is entirely due to the Yamaha VCM technology. I do believe that it is indistinguishable from the original analog sound.”
Two new rack-mountable I/O units, the Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D, can be used in a variety of combinations and configurations, communicating via a scalable Audinate Dante™ digital audio network. Up to eight I/O rack units can be connected to a CL series console, while multiple CL series consoles can share control of the same I/O rack unit. A new Gain Compensation function adds the ability to combine FOH and monitor control via a single network, for comprehensive digital live sound integration.
Extra flexibility is provided by the CL StageMix application for iPad, providing wireless remote control capability for setting up and operating CL consoles from anywhere on stage or in the audience seating area. The Yamaha Console File Converter is another useful computer application, allowing data to be shared between CL series, PM5D, M7CL, and LS9 consoles, so data from one show doesn’t have to be completely reprogrammed from scratch for the next, even if different consoles are used.
