Pure, natural sound and powerful processing

In order to produce great mixes, audio engineers need to have uncolored, natural sound as a starting point. That's why the Yamaha QL1 features top-shelf circuitry and components — to provide you with pristine audio from input to output. And when you're ready to get creative, the QL1's powerful Virtual Circuity Modeling (VCM) technology effectively captures various pieces of analog gear right down to their individual components (including models influenced by an 1176, LA-2A, and EQ-1A), injecting your mix with an abundance of authentic-sounding analog vibe. Of course, the crown jewel of the QL1's analog emulations is its VCM versions of the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5033 EQ and 5043 compressor developed in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs! You also get Yamaha REV-X reverb processors and a graphic EQ for your buses.

Revolutionary Dan Dugan automatic mixer

The Yamaha QL1 comes armed with Dan Dugan Sound Design's revolutionary automatic microphone mixing technology. This remarkable processor, which can be loaded into up to 16 channels simultaneously, lets you automatically optimize your microphone gain distribution for speech applications. The result is smooth, natural gain control — the QL1 almost mixes itself! This is a lifesaver for a non-engineer volunteer who runs live sound in a house of worship or at a community event. This is especially useful in non-scripted situations, as it allows you to concentrate on the balance rather than having to chase talkers on the faders.

  • Dan Dugan Sound Design's automixing technology
  • Up to 16 channels of Dugan Speech System
  • A lifesaver for non-engineer sound volunteers
Refined control for smooth operation

When you're running live sound, you've got to move quickly! Well, Yamaha took this into account, making visibility and usability hallmarks of the QL1's design. First of all, the QL1's large, easy-to-navigate touch-panel display makes working in the dark child's play. You'll love the intuitive design of the QL1's Selected Channel interface, which provides you with a comprehensive overview of the parameters available to you for the channel that you're working on. On top of that, you get remarkably comfortable faders and a straightforward Touch-and-Turn knob, which make operating the QL1 a phenomenally smooth, efficient experience. You also get remote control and offline setup capability via your iPad or computer, adding even more refinement to an already state-of-the-art operating environment.

  • Intuitive Selected Channel interface
  • Comfortable sculpted faders and knobs
  • Remote control and offline setup capability
Link it up with built-in Dante networking

Network capability is essential in today's live sound applications, and the Yamaha QL1 has everything you need. By utilizing the widely-implemented Dante networking protocol, the QL1 is able to interface with other Dante-compatible devices to create systems of just about any scale or complexity. Additionally, the QL1's "Port to Port" feature allows its inputs and outputs to be used as elements in a larger system, providing you with unprecedented routing capabilities for front-of-house and monitor consoles. And you'll never have to worry about gain complications disrupting the balance of your mix, as the QL1's Gain Compensation feature ensures that the total gain sent out via the network remains constant, regardless of which device a signal is routed through. In other words, crank up the analog gain on a stage box, and Gain Compensation will automatically turn down the volume on the network so nobody hears the volume change.

  • Widely implemented Dante networking protocol
  • Expand your rig with the Port to Port feature
  • Automatic Gain Compensation between devices
Expand your system with mini-YGDAI slots

The Yamaha QL1 gives you plenty of opportunities for expandability, thanks to its mini-YGDAI expansion slots, which can accept more than 30 types of expansion cards. You can also connect multiple QL1s together via I/O cards such as the MY16-AE, to create powerful systems that offer massive channel counts. The QL1 can also be cascaded to other Yamaha digital consoles such as their CL Series, giving you unprecedented flexibility. On top of that, you can use a separately sold MY8-LAKE expansion card to infuse your QL1 with Lab.gruppen's Lake Processing technology — Mesa EQ, Ideal Graphic EQ, Linear Phase EQ, and other processing features that are capable of fine-tuning your system in a wide variety of environments.

Two-track recording and multitrack options

If you're wanting to record your live shows, the Yamaha QL1 makes it easy. You can either make a 2-track recording straight to a standard USB flash drive (in MP3 format), or you can create a full-blown multitrack recording with Nuendo Live or your DAW choice via Dante. Multitrack recording is great for performing "virtual sound checks" when the band isn't available, and for making professional recordings of your live shows. On top of that, you can play back sound files (in MP3, AAC, or WMA format) from your flash drive, for convenient playback of background music or sound effects without the need for extra playback equipment.

  • Record two tracks directly to a flash drive
  • Play back files from a flash drive
  • Create multitrack recordings with your DAW via Dante
  • Up to 32 tracks can be recorded simultaneously
Tight iPad and computer integration

Thanks to Yamaha's state-of-the-art QL StageMix iOS app, it's possible to mix on the QL1 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 QL Editor app, which is compatible with both Macs and PCs, to set up the QL1's parameters via your computer, both on- and offline. You can use the QL 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. One thing's for sure: both of these innovative apps are great timesavers!

  • Two amazing ways to access your settings

Equalizer: A component designed to alter the frequency balance of an audio signal. Equalizers may be graphic, parametric, or a combination of both. Fade: A gradual increase in audio, i.e. a fade-up, or a gradual decrease in audio, i.e. a fade-down.Feedback: The transmission of current or voltage from the output of a device back to the input, where it interacts with the input signal to modify operation of the device. Feedback is positive when it's in phase with the input and negative when it's out of phase. Frequency: The number of cycles (vibrations) per second. In audio, audible frequencies commonly range from 20 to 20,000 cycles per second (Hz). In video, frequency is used to define the image resolution. Low-frequency video images depict large objects or images. Higher frequencies depict smaller objects (finer details). Frequency Response: A measure of what frequencies can be reproduced and how accurately they are reproduced. A measurement of 20 to 20,000 Hz, 3dB means those frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz can be reproduced no more than 3 dB above or below a reference frequency level. Full-Range: A speaker designed to reproduce the full range (20 Hz to 20 kHz) of audio frequencies.Gain: Increase in level or amplitude.Gooseneck: This refers to amicrophone with a flexible neck that is most frequently attached to a podium or lectern. It is designed to allow the speaker to raise or lower the microphone to a suitable height.Graphic Equalizer: A type of equalizer with sliding controls that creates a pattern representing a graph of the frequency-response changes. Raising sliders boosts the affected frequencies; lowering sliders cuts (attenuates) the affected frequencies.High Pass: A filter that passes high frequencies, and attenuates low frequencies. Same as low cut.Hz: Hertz or cycles per second. Something that repeats a cycle once each second moves at a rate of 1 Hz.Incue/Inq/In-Point: These words all refer to the initial few seconds of audio signifying the beginning of the production.Impedance: A measure of the impediment to the flow of alternating current, measured in ohms at a given frequency. Larger numbers mean higher resistance to current flow.KHz: Kilohertz or one thousand Hz.Lavaliere: A small microphone that attaches to clothing, allowing the speaker to have a hands-free presentation.Line Array: A group of speakers that have been arrayed or “built up” in the vertical or horizontal plane, which allow for a highly consistent sound field. A Line Array is perfect for medium to large audiences.Midbass: The middle of the bass part of the frequency range, from approximately 50 to 100 Hz (upper bass would be from 100 to 200 Hz). Also used as a term for loudspeaker drivers designed to reproduce both bass and midrange frequencies. Midrange: The middle of the audio frequency range. Also used as a term for loudspeaker drivers designed to reproduce this range. Mixer: This is the unit in which audio signals are directed from. A mixer provides for both mic and line input combinations while allowing you to control one or more outputs.MP3: MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3. Compression scheme used to transfer audio files via the Internet and store in portable players and digital audio servers. Natural Sound (NATS): The nonverbal audio that occurs in a non-studio setting. NATS can be used to help characterize the setting.Noise: An unwanted portion of a signal such as hiss, hum, whine, static, or buzzing.Passive: Not active. A passive crossover uses no external power and results in insertion loss. A passive speaker is one without internal amplification.Phase: Time relationship between signals; it's all relative.Power Output: A measure, usually in watts, of how much energy is modulated by a component.Preamplifier: A control and switching component that may include equalization functions. The preamp comes in the signal chain before the amplifiers.surround processor portion of the receiver and the input of the amplifier portion of the receiver.Processors: Anything that processes an incoming signal in some way. Surround processors, for example, can decode a Dolby Digital signal to send to an amp so you can hear it.Pulse Code Modulation: (PCM) a way to convert sound or analog information to binary information (0s and 1s) by taking samples of the sound and record the resulting number as binary information. Used on all CDs, DVD-Audio, and just about every other digital audio format. It can sometimes be found on DVD-Video.RF: Radio Frequency. Television signals are modulated onto RF signals and are then demodulated by your television's tuner. VCRs and DBS receivers often include channel 3 or 4 modulators, allowing the output signal to be tuned by the television on those channels. Also, laser discs used an RF signal for modulating Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks on some movies. This requires an RF demodulator (usually referred to as an AC3-RF demodulator) before or in the surround processor to decode the signal. RMS: Root Mean Square or the square root of the arithmetic mean (average) of the square's set of values. A reasonably accurate method of describing an amplifier's power output. Signal-to-Noise Ratio: A comparison of the signal level relative to the noise level. Larger numbers are better. Simultaneous Interpretation: This system allows attendees to hear the meeting in their own language. Sound field: The total acoustical characteristics of a space, such as ambience; number, timing, and relative level of reflections; ratio of direct to reflected sound; RT-60 time; etc. Speaker: A component that converts electrical energy into acoustical energy. SPL: Sound-Pressure Level. Measured in dB. Subwoofer: A speaker designed to reproduce very low bass frequencies, usually those below about 80 Hz.THX: Certification program for home theater equipment. Uses some proprietary features, but mostly assures a base quality level for a given room size. (See THX Select or Ultra.) Is compatible with any and all soundtrack formats. Stands for either Tom Holman's eXperiment, after the engineer who drafted the original standard, or is named after the company's founder George Lucas' first movie, THX 1138. Nobody agrees on which.
