Yamaha CL & QL Console Training

Next course: Multiple dates in October!

The SFL Yamaha CL & QL Console Training day is a great introduction for sound engineers and system technicians wanting to get up to speed on the series, learning about the consoles, Rio devices and basic Dante networking.

Yamaha’s digital console heritage is found way back in 1987 with the introduction of the DMP7, and then the LS9, the M7CL, and now the CL and QL series. Come and find out how to get up and running on the consoles, learning more about:

  • Console Layout
  • Connectivity, I/O and Basic Dante
  • RIOs and Network switches
  • Resetting and configuring from scratch
  • Patching
  • Channel operations (such as Gain, EQ, Dynamics)
  • Using DCAs, Mute Groups, Mix Busses and Matrixes
  • The GEQ, Effects and Premium Rack
  • User Defined Keys and Custom Fader Layers

This session is designed for those who have a basic understanding of audio consoles and their core mixing concepts – you should be familiar with fundamental principles such as Gain, EQ, Compression/Gating, Auxes, Matrixes and Effects.

Having Dante Level 1 would give you a good head start on the training – more info can be found here: https://www.audinate.com/resources/training-and-tutorials/dante-certification-training

NB: Exact consoles demonstrated will depend on availability.
