  CL STAGEMIX V7 GUIDE

 

Welcome:

 

Thank you for downloading the “CL StageMix” iPad app for the Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles.

The latest firmware version for CL series can be downloaded from

https://www.yamaha.com/proaudio/

 

StageMix is an application for the Apple iPad that provides remote control of Yamaha CL series digital mixing console functions via a simple, intuitive graphical interface from anywhere within wireless range. The software has been specifically designed to allow engineers to adjust monitor mixes from the performers’ positions on stage, directly controlling mix parameters via the iPad rather than having to rely on verbal directions to a second engineer. The result is better mixes in less time; a huge advantage during high-pressure pre-show setup. Although StageMix is focused on the requirements for adjusting monitor mixes on stage, its range of features is continually expanding, allowing it to be used for a wider variety of remote control functions.

Note: iOS applications may not be supported in your area. Please check with your Yamaha dealer.

1.0   System Requirements

  • Apple iPad (any model using iOS 8 or higher)
  • Yamaha CL series digital mixing console with V3.0, V3.1, V4.0 or V4.1 firmware
  • Wi-Fi access point (802.11g, n or ac)
  • CAT5 cable (to connect the console to a Wi-Fi access point)
  • iOS: iOS 8.0 -11.x

 

2.0Wi-Fi Settings

Configure the Wi-Fi access point, following the manufacturer’s instructions. No special settings are needed, but using security such as WPA is highly recommended, to prevent unwanted devices from joining the network. Here are some suggested settings to assist less experienced Wi-Fi users:

 

  1. Give the wireless network a name (this is the “SSID”).
  2. Choose a security mode (such as WPA) and password.
  3. Select the wireless mode (802.11g, n or ac).
  4. In the case of “n”, select the wireless band (2.4 or 5GHz).
  5. If available, enable “Auto Channel Selection” so the wireless channel with the least interference will be selected.

 

Using a Wi-Fi access point with 2 or more external aerials is recommended to increase potential signal range. Booster aerials could be connected for a further increase in performance.

 

3.0Getting Started

3.1CL series Network Setup

Connect the Wi-Fi access point to the CL series console’s network port via a CAT5 cable.

 

Make sure your Ethernet cable is connected to a LAN port on your Wi-Fi device and not the WAN port.

 

Note the IP address of the CL series console - this will need to be entered into the iPad later. It can be found in the console as follows:

 

  1. Press the [SETUP] button on the CL series touchscreen
  2. Press [NETWORK] on the CL series touchscreen

 

 

 
 
 

 

3.2iPad Wi-Fi Settings

The iPad can be configured using either DHCP or a Static IP address.

 

 

3.2.1Using DHCP

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to a device. It is recommended to use DHCP. Use the following steps to configure your iPad using DHCP.

 

  1. Open the iPad “Settings” menu
  2. Select “Wi-Fi”, and choose the correct Wi-Fi Access Point under “CHOOSE A NETWORK…”
  3. Tap on the network’s name to edit the IP address.

 

 
  /Users/cangell/Desktop/untitled folder/IMG_0030.PNG
 

 

  1. Select [DHCP] and ensure that your iPad receives data for the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router and DNS.
  2. Select [Renew Lease] if this data is not applied.
  3. If the settings are successfully applied, press the iPad’s Home button to exit the Settings menu.

 

Note:

  • Make sure that the subnet of the IP address is the same as that of the CL series console.
  • If DHCP settings are not applied after step (e), please check your DHCP server settings (refer to 11.4 for further advice). Alternatively, setup your iPad using a Static IP Address.

 

3.2.2Using a Static IP Address

  1. Open the iPad “Settings” menu
  2. Select “Wi-Fi”, and choose the correct Wi-Fi Access Point under “CHOOSE A NETWORK…”
  3. Tap on the network’s name to edit the IP address.

 

 

 

  1. Select [Static]
  2. IP Address: enter an IP Address similar to the one for the CL series console, but with just the last number different. (For example, if CL series console is 192.168.0.128, give an address to the iPad such as 192.168.0.124).
  3. Subnet Mask: enter “255.255.255.0”.
  4. Router: enter the IP Address of your Wi-Fi Access Point (printed on the bottom of the device or in the user’s manual)
  5. DNS: enter the IP Address of your Wi-Fi Access Point (as in step g)
  6. Press the iPad’s Home button to exit the Settings menu.

 

3.2.3Network switching (V7.0 and later)

If using iOS 9.3 and later with CL StageMix V7.0 and later, you can connect to a network using a wired connection in addition to a wireless connection. A Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter and USB Ethernet Adapter are required to use a wired connection.

You can switch between a wireless and wired connection when offline; you cannot switch while online.

 

3.3StageMix Setup

 

Launch the “CL StageMix” App

 

 
  StageMix%20V7%20Artwork/StageMix%20App%20Icon%20CL/ipad%20Pro/167%20x%20167.png
 

 

The “Select Mixer” screen will appear. From this screen, you can do any of the following things:

 

  • Access the OFFLINE DEMO mode to explore the features and user interface of CL StageMix.
  • Configure StageMix to work with a CL console.
  • Select a CL console that has already been configured to work with your iPad and begin using StageMix.

 

3.3.1OFFLINE DEMO

If [OFFLINE DEMO] is pressed in the “Select Mixer” screen, the functions of StageMix will operate independently of any mixing console. It is a useful way to demonstrate and learn how to use the app without the need for a mixer. Level meters and most Scene Memory functions do not work in this mode.

 

3.3.2Configure StageMix to Work with a CL series Console

 

  1. Press [ADD MIXER] to open the following screen:

 

 

../../Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202017-09-21%20at%2013.37.36.png

 

  1. Tap on the blank Name field and enter a name for your CL series console using the iPad’s onscreen keyboard.
  2. Enter the CL series console’s IP address noted in 3.1. The default IP Address may not need to be changed but confirm this in the Network Setup screen of the CL series console (refer to 3.1). If you need to modify the IP Address in StageMix, make sure you include the dots between the sets of numbers (as shown above). If the entered console IP address is in a compatible range with the iPad’s current IP address (displayed beneath), a green tick will be displayed to the right of the console IP address. If the entered IP address is in-compatible range with the current IP address of the iPad, a red cross is displayed – please enter a console IP address in a compatible range.

Please note, having a green tick displayed does not mean that the entered console IP address for the console is accurate or that the console has been automatically detected. Please check the console for the currently assigned IP address to ensure that the correct address is being entered into StageMix.

  1. Select the Model of CL series console.
  2. Press the [ADD MIXER] button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. For reference, the currently assigned IP address of the iPad is displayed beneath the console model buttons.

 

Note: From StageMix V6 onwards, it is no longer necessary to enter the console MAC Address.

 

3.3.3Select a Mixer

If your iPad has been configured to work with a CL series console, select the mixer from the list. (The model of mixer (CL1, CL3 or CL5) will appear in smaller text below the mixer’s name.)

 

3.3.4Connect and Synchronize with the CL Console

Click the [CONNECT] button to connect to the console and begin the synchronization process.

 

The message “Syncing With CL…” will appear while StageMix is obtaining parameters from the console. After this process is complete, the Mixer window will appear and StageMix is ready to be used.

 

Up to 5 iPads running StageMix can be connected to the console simultaneously.

 

If StageMix cannot connect with your console, refer to the Troubleshooting section (11.0) at the end of this document for possible solutions.

 

3.3.5Edit Mixer Configurations

The parameters of a saved Mixer Configuration can be viewed and edited by tapping the right arrow button next to a mixer’s name. This will open the Edit Mixer screen which allows the Name and IP Address to be verified and edited using the procedures described in section

3.3.2. After editing, press [SAVE MIXER] to save any changes.

 

4.0Mixer Window

The main page of the StageMix is called the “Mixer” window. It shows the EQ curves, Pan positions, Dynamics status, [CUE] and [ON] buttons, faders, level meters, and channel names and colors for eight adjacent channels.

 

 
  ../../Desktop/untitled%20folder/IMG_0007.PNG
 

Across the top of the screen, level meters and faders are displayed in blocks of channels for mono Input Channels 1-32, Stereo Input Channels 1-8, Mix and Matrix busses, and the Master Stereo and Mono busses. This is the “Navigation/Meter Bridge”.

 

From StageMix Version 7, there is a new option in the Navigation/Meter Bridge to access the “Custom Fader Layer” view. Refer to section 4.2.1 for details.

 

 

4.1Channel Bank Navigation

Press any of the “Navigation/Meter Bridge” blocks to select the bank of channels to be viewed and controlled in the channel strips below.

 

4.2Layer Navigation

Press the [CH 1-32] or [CH 33-72] button to make those banks of channels available in the “Navigation/Meter Bridge”. Stereo Inputs 1-8 are available as part of the [CH 1-32] bank.

 

The Layer Navigation button displays black text on a white background to indicate the active Layer.

 

 

4.2.1Custom Fader Layer

Press the [CUSTOM] button in the meter bridge to access the Custom Meter Bridge layout.

 

 
  ../../Desktop/untitled%20folder/IMG_0010.PNG
 

 

To assign a fader bank to a meter bridge block, touch and hold on a fader/meter block. An assignment pop-up menu will be displayed which contains a list of all available fader banks for the connected console model, including all standard fader banks, DCA banks and Custom Fader Banks. Touch the desired fader bank to assign it to the chosen fader block. Repeat this operation to assign multiple fader banks to the available meter bridge blocks.

 

 

../../Desktop/untitled%20folder/IMG_0011.PNG

 

Left/Right navigation buttons can be used to navigate to other meter blocks without leaving the assignment pop-up. To exit the assignment pop-up, touch anywhere outside of the pop-up or touch the close button in the top right corner.

 

On the far-right side, is the master block. This block can be assigned as either the standard master bank (as found in the standard meter bridge in StageMix), or as the custom master bank as set on the console.

 

 

Please note, it is not possible to edit Custom Fader Bank channel assignments from StageMix. Please use the Console or CL Editor for this function.

 

4.2.2Custom Fader Bank Naming

Once a fader bank has been assign to a meter bridge block, a name can be given to the bank.

Double tap on the desired fader bank in the meter bridge to open the keyboard. Once a name has been applied, press [return] to close the keyboard.

Alternatively, use the left/right arrow keys to move to other banks along the meter bridge, to name those banks without having to close the keyboard and re-select the next block.

The bank name is now displayed under the applicable fader block in the meter bridge.

The name is linked to the chosen fader bank, not the block position in the meter bridge. If a named fader bank is changed to a different meter bridge block location, the name of that bank will automatically follow.

 

Please note, in order to name a fader bank it is first necessary to assign it to the meter bridge.

 

 
  ../../Desktop/untitled%20folder/IMG_0014.PNG
 

 

4.2.3Storing of Custom Meter Bridge Layout and Names

The assigned custom meter bridge fader bank layout and naming’s, are stored as part of the currently in-use Mixer Preset – as created in the front page of StageMix.

If a Mixer Preset is deleted or the console model is edited, the associated layout and naming’s will also be deleted.

 

4.3Channel Names and Colors

The name and color of each channel appears in StageMix as it does in the CL series console. The names are dimmed if the channel is switched off.

Double-tap on the channel name in the Mixer window to edit the name and color. Type in a name and press [return]. Alternatively, navigate to another channel using the left/right cursor buttons above the keyboard. This allows multiple channels to be named before closing the keyboard.

 

4.4Faders

Each fader has its channel number displayed on its cap. The fader cap must be touched to allow the level to be adjusted. When a fader cap is touched, its background will lighten and its current dB value will be displayed. Using the iPad’s multi-touch facility, up to eight faders can be moved simultaneously.

 

Note: “Multitasking Gestures” must be turned Off in the iPad in order to allow four or more faders to be adjusted simultaneously (refer to 11.8 for details).

 

4.4.1Long Faders

Press the [LONG FADERS] button at the bottom-left corner of the Mixer window to allow more accurate adjustment of fader levels. In this view, EQ, Pan, Dynamics and the “Navigation/Meter Bridge” are not visible.

 

 
 
 

 

4.4.2Navigation in Long Faders Mode

Although the “Navigation/Meter Bridge” is not visible in Long Faders mode, it is possible to navigate up or down in banks of 8 channels using the left/right arrow buttons in the upper left area of the Mixer window.

 

Press the [LONG FADERS] button in the bottom-left corner again to return to the Mixer Overview.

 

4.5Channel ON

Press [ON] to change the on/off status of the channel. The button is green when the channel is on. When a channel is off, its name and level meter will dim and its fader position shown in the “Navigation/Meter Bridge” will also dim.

 

If a channel is muted as part of a Mute Group, the ON button will blink.

 

4.6CUE

The [CUE] buttons for each channel control the mixer’s Cue functions. Their operation mode corresponds to the status of the Cue Mode in the Setup screen (refer to 10.10).

 

When [LAST CUE] mode is active, only one channel can be cued at a time. When [MIX CUE] mode is selected, multiple channels can be cued simultaneously.

 

The [CUE CLEAR] button will cancel any cues that have been activated. This is useful when there are multiple cues to cancel, and when some are hidden in other layers.

 

4.7Dual Cue Mode

With V4 firmware and higher, a second cue bus (Cue B) can be created using Matrix 7/8. This assignment can be made in the console only.

 

4.7.1Channel Mode

In Channel mode, every channel in the console can be assigned to one of the following Channel Settings:

  • A
  • B
  • A+B

 

These assignments will be displayed as part of the CUE button for every channel in StageMix:

 

 
 
 

 

If a Cue for a channel is active, the Cue button will be yellow.

 

4.7.2Cue Clear

In Channel Mode, a popup will appear when the [CUE CLEAR] button is pressed. This provides a choice of which Cue busses will be cleared:

  • [A]
  • [B]
  • [ALL]

 

4.7.3Remote Mode

In Remote mode, Cue functions in StageMix will exclusively control the Cue B Bus.

 

If the [CUE CLEAR] button is pressed, the Cue B Bus will be cleared.

 

4.8SOLO Mode

When SOLO mode is ON, the [CUE] buttons in StageMix change to [SOLO] buttons. These buttons turn red when they are enabled.

Note: this does not apply if Remote mode is also active.

 

SOLO mode effectively operates in addition to Cue mode. When a channel is Soloed, it is also Cued.

 

If Remote mode and SOLO mode are both active, StageMix will control the Cue B Bus and Solos will be accessible from the console only.

 

If SOLO mode is used along with Dual Cue Channel Mode, the [SOLO] buttons will also include A and B indicators to identify their Cue bus assignments.

 

  1. Master Bank

Pressing the [Master] block in the “Navigation/Meter Bridge” will cause channels from the master section to appear in the fader strips. Included in this block are the Stereo Master channel, Mono Master channel and the Monitor Level and On control.

 

Note: there are two EQ thumbnails above the Stereo Master channel. Parametric EQ is always linked for the left and right sides of the Stereo Master channel. However it is possible to have independent GEQs assigned to the left and right side of the Stereo Master.

 

 
 

 

4.10GAIN

The gain for each input channel can be controlled using the faders in StageMix. Press the [GAIN] button in the lower left area of the Mixer window to enter GAIN mode.

 

Note: the [GAIN] button will only appear when a bank of Input Channels is selected since there are no Gain parameters for Output Channels.

 

Input channels can have both Analog and Digital Gain parameters. When GAIN mode is selected, a second button labelled [DIGITAL] appears above the [GAIN] button.

 

If the [DIGITAL] button is not highlighted, then Analog Gain mode is active. The background behind the channel faders will be dark red to indicate that StageMix is in Analog Gain control mode.

 

Faders can be moved to change the Analog Gain for each channel. The gain value of each head amp will be displayed above the fader while any fader cap is being touched. Up to 8 faders can be adjusted simu
