The standards stay, but innovation never ends.
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 offering performance and familiarity that discerning users continue to demand. By definition, â€śstandardsâ€ť are best kept as they are. With evolutionary refinements, of course.
Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles represent a new level of refinement. They offer 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.
Keys to Live Sound Success
A creative console for expressive engineering.
Every engineer, artist, and audience agrees that sound quality is the bottom line. Thatâ€™s a given. Through thorough analysis, review, and refinement of every detail of the circuitry and technology used, Yamaha CL series consoles deliver naturally superior sound plus a comprehensive range of â€ścoloringâ€ť options that give the sonic craftsmen who will use them extraordinary creative freedom. The signal processors provided are plentiful and of the highest quality, including extraordinary Portico 5033/5043 EQ and compressor devices that bring Yamaha VCM technology together with the legendary talents of Rupert Neve. The platform is pure and natural, so the engineer can create and deliver the ideal sound.
Efficient, enjoyable operation.
A truly useful sound reinforcement console is one that can keep pace with the rapidly and dramatically changing demands of live sound applications. Efficient, intuitive operation is essential. Yamahaâ€™s acclaimed Centralogic concept is the core of a refined user interface that offers a new, unprecedented level of operating efficiency in the CL series, from visual feedback right down to the form and feel of the faders and controls. The CL consoles are also ready for seamlessly integrated remote control and offline editing via an Apple iPad or other computer. Control is familiar and intuitive, while at the same time offering extensive freedom.
Scalable, versatile network capabilities.
Network capabilities are rapidly becoming fundamental and indispensable in todayâ€™s fast-paced world of digital live sound. CL series consoles feature separate console and I/O rack components that communicate via the Danteâ„˘ network audio protocol, allowing fast, efficient design and deployment of capable systems from the most basic to the dazzlingly complex. The ability to add Lake processing via expansion slots also adds to the systemâ€™s versatility and adaptability to the widest range of mixing needs.
