Yamaha’s V3.0 software release for the CL/QL series of mixing consoles adds features and functionality for broadcast and live sound applications.

5.1 Surround Panning enables the pan positioning to be set via the touch panel or knobs. Mix to Matrix can be used for international sound production and Mix to Stereo can be used for stereo mixdown. In addition to surround mixing, CL/QL V3.0 adds basic surround monitoring. Monitor alignment capability is also provided, with adjustment of relative speaker levels and delays.

Dugan automatic mixing has been included on QL consoles since their launch, but v3.0 brings the facility to all CL series mixers as well. Gain distribution for up to 16 speech microphone channels is automatically optimised in real time, achieving smooth, natural level control that would normally only be possible with trained operators.

The K's Lab team at the Yamaha R&D Division, under the direction of Toshifumi Kunimoto, has created an accurate VCM model of the Buss Comp 369 buss compressor, which can be  inserted on the stereo mix bus for increased loudness, more uniform levels and warm overall sound  for live and broadcast applications.

Additionally, mix minus is now available to QL consoles, as well as CL series consoles from v2.0 upward. The signal from a specified channel can be easily omitted from a specified bus, and It is now possible to set frame delay in frame increments for easy sync with a wide variety of video formats.

A real time analyser (RTA) is now provided to support room tuning and other operations. The frequency spectrum of cued channels can be shown in the new RTA display as well as in the PEQ or GEQ display.

DCA assignment has been added to the parameters for Recall Safe, Focus Recall, and Global Paste. Rather than only being selectable with all parameters during scene memory management, DCA assignment is now an independent setting, allowing for more refined control.

CL and QL series console files are interchangeable, so it is easy to choose and combine models to ideally accommodate live sound FOH and monitoring, as well as broadcast relay and recording, from large scale applications through to the most basic.
