Yamaha launches CL Series digital consoles
The line-up comprises three consoles, the CL1, CL3 and CL5, ranging in scale from 48 to 72 mono + eight stereo inputs. All feature 16 DCAs and 24 mix / eight matrix output busses.
Founded on the Centralogic interface, the CL Series incorporates innovations and refinements, including enhanced select channel functions and user defined knobs. The CL Series EQ and effects have been expanded. They include an Effect Rack with VCM analogue circuitry modelling 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.
Two new rack-mountable I/O units, 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.
