The M7CL series is a digital live-sound console that carries on the digital evolution from the acclaimed PM1DV2 and PM5D consoles. It includes an impressive array of advanced concepts such as the "Centralogic™" control interface that makes it as easy and intuitive to use as an analog console and in-depth access management facilities that will be particularly appreciated in installations.
Digital Mixing with Analog Comfort
You'll rethink the notion that digital is difficult
A worthy successor to their acclaimed PM1DV2 and PM5D consoles, the Yamaha M7CL-48 will make you rethink the notion that digital mixers are difficult to use. Thanks to its revolutionary Centralogic control surface, the M7CL-48 is as easy and intuitive to use as an analog mixing console. Make no mistake, this innovative console will feel familiar and comfortable the first time you sit in front of it! On top of that, the M7CL-48's impressive array of functions, including Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) and REV-X reverbs, eliminates the need for racks of external gear, making it the perfect all-in-one mixing solution for medium-sized live sound applications.
Centralogic Interface for Straightforward Control
As intuitive as an analog console (if not more so)
The secret to the Yamaha M7CL-48's ease of use lies with its innovative Centralogic interface, which simplifies its operation to the point where it's as intuitive as an analog console (if not more so). Instead of forcing you to sift through endless, complicated menus, all of the M7CL-48's mix controls are accessed via just two displays: Overview and Selected Channel. The Overview display, which is the M7CL-48's default display, gives you a standard view of an 8-channel group that you select via the Centralogic navigation keys. These keys, laid out just like an 8-channel group on a console, let you easily bring any group of eight channels to the central controls with a single press of a button. The Selected Channel display gives you in-depth control by letting you zoom in on the channel of your choice to adjust its individual parameters such as preamp gain, dynamics, and EQ. All of the M7CL-48's mix controls (other than each channel's individual motor fader) can be accessed with the Centralogic interface.
Sophisticated Sonic Control
Loads of great-sounding headroom with recallable settings
Of course, all of the simplicity and ease of use wouldn't amount to much if the Yamaha M7CL-48 didn't sound good. Luckily, this remarkable console's class-leading input-channel head amplifiers give you plenty of great-sounding headroom with over 72dB of gain. Best of all, the M7CL-48's head amplifier gain is recallable like almost all of the console's other settings. And if you want access to +48-volt phantom power and phase settings, a simple touch of the M7CL-48's display puts all of the control you want — right at your fingertips. You also get intuitive control of dynamics, EQ, and channel linkage, as well as buses and matrices.
Outstanding Effects and Effect Control
A plethora of sound-shaping tools at your fingertips
Packed with eight internal effects processors, the Yamaha M7CL-48 puts a plethora of sound-shaping tools at your disposal. With a few effortless touches on the M7CL-48's screen, you have quick access to great-sounding effects and EQs. The crown jewel of the M7CL-48's effects, however, is its inclusion of Yamaha's remarkable Virtual Circuitry Modeling technology, which effectively models various pieces of analog gear, right down to their individual components. Whether you want to add some musical analog compression or saturation to your mix, or simply add a touch of vintage-tinged EQ, the M7CL-48 will inject your mix with an abundance of authentic-sounding analog vibe. On top of that, you get a complete suite of Yamaha REV-X reverb effects!
Efficient Interface and Control Functions
Streamlined, efficient workflow is the name of the game
With the Yamaha M7CL-48, a streamlined, efficient workflow is the name of the game. In addition to remarkably easy-to-use Centralogic faders, you also get 12 user-defined keys that can be assigned to perform a range of useful functions. Want to assign tap tempo to your delays, jump to a specific display screen, or activate talkback? Just assign the function and press a button — it's really that simple! On top of that, channel names and icons appear at the top and bottom of every channel for easy visual identification — no more fumbling around in the dark with a flashlight! If that wasn't enough, you also get straightforward control of DCA and mute groups and simplified, no-nonsense routing and patching via the M7CL-48's intuitive digital patching interface.
Features for Optimum Monitoring
Ultra-precise monitor mixes and quick access to functions
Thanks to the Yamaha M7CL-48's Sends on Fader function, it's child's play to create ultra-precise monitor mixes. You also get speedy access to matrix and mix send levels. You also have the choice of controlling monitor/cue levels using either a fader or a monitor level encoder. Many engineers prefer to use a fader, as it's a better visual level indicator, allowing for more precise, comfortable adjustment. On top of that, each of the M7CL-48's mix buses can be quickly assigned to mono or stereo operation. You also get a Pre-EQ send, which is ideal for feeding in-ear monitor systems.
Advantages of Digital Technology
Maximum digital value with features that make a difference
When you really dive into the Yamaha M7CL-48's advanced features, you'll quickly get a feel for the advantages of digital technology. First of all, you can store up to 300 scenes. Scenes are a complete snapshot of all of your settings that can be recalled for use at a later time, making setup a snap. You can take advantage of the M7CL-48's Global Paste function, which allows you to edit the parameters of multiple scenes simultaneously, eliminating the need to recall and edit individual scenes. On top of that, Recall Focus and Recall Safe functions let you specify the parameters to be recalled with each scene or specify parameters that are not to be recalled with any scene. These functions allow you to store basic setups for different types of shows, make last-minute changes to your settings in all scenes to accommodate a fill-in musician, or prevent any scene recall operation from changing a critical overall setting. If that wasn't enough, the Channel Library lets you store channel parameter settings such as dynamics and EQ for fast, efficient setup.
Tight iPad and Computer Integration
Mix remotely from the audience or the performer's perspective
Thanks to Yamaha's state-of-the-art M7CL StageMix iOS app, it's possible to mix on the M7CL-48 remotely using your iPad. Imagine being able to mix from the audience's or performer's positions — you can ensure that your show sounds great in every corner of the venue! You can also use the M7CL Editor app, which is compatible with both Macs and PCs, to set up the M7CL-48's parameters via your computer, both on- and offline. You can use the M7CL Editor to conveniently manage scene and patch list data, for example, and keyboard entry capability can be a huge advantage for typing channel names, etc. You also get the Yamaha Console File Converter, which allows data to be shared between a number of Yamaha digital mixing consoles. One thing's for sure: these innovative apps are great timesavers!
