Yamaha TF-Rack Product Description
The TF series combines Yamaha know-how with new input from the field and the latest touch-screen technology to deliver an evolved experience in console operation. Smooth setup and operation, practical presets and scenes, refined design and software applications that integrate seamlessly with the entire system. These new elements comprise TouchFlow Operation, a new concept in console interfaces that offers unprecedented comfort and convenience in small consoles.
Allowing most operations to be carried out via the touch panel alone, the innovative TF series interface will quickly become second nature to a wide range of users. Whether you have experience with Yamaha digital consoles, work with other consoles, or have never operated a mixer before, TF consoles will leave you to the desired results quickly and effortlessly. The availability of physical controls surrounding the touch panel further enhance control versatility and precision. The display content has been specifically designed for easy, direct accessibility, with a layout that promotes that most natural and efficient mixing. Touch panel operation is as easy as shaping the sound with your fingertips.
Touch and Turn Knob Control
When you need extra precision for a fine EQ or other adjustment, the physical Touch & Turn Knob is always available right beside the touch panel. There are also four User Defined Knobs that can be assigned to control compressor threshold, EQ gain, or other parameters you need fast and direct access to whilst mixing.
1-Knob COMP™ and 1-Knob EQ™
An experienced engineer can do a lot with a compressor; bring a guitar to life, add punch to bass, tighten up a snare, and make vocals ride clearly on the mix. The 1-knob COMP can do all this quickly and easily without the need to juggle multiple parameters to achieve the desired effect. First featured on Yamaha analog mixers, this ability quickly became one that was highly valued, resulting in further refinement in a digital version that adds new setup ease and efficiency to the TF consoles.
The 1-knob EQ has been relentlessly fine-tuned by Yamaha R&D staff in cooperation with distinguished sound engineers, to ensure that you can achieve outstanding results with minimum effort in the shortest possible time. A Vocal Mode makes it easier than ever to achieve a clear, well defined vocal sound, while an Intensity Mode offers 1-knob ''intensity'' control over EQ curves you either select from presets or create from scratch.
Furthermore the 1-knob COMP and 1-knob EQ are available on the output channels too, so you quickly achieve overall output compression or EQ that ideally matches the room and audience size. The output 1-knob EQ has a Loudness Mode in place of the Vocal Mode, effectively increasing the sound pressure level whilst maintaining optimum sound quality.
The Yamaha R&D team have focused on creating a range of shortcuts to produce outstanding sound as quickly as possible. Effective in a variety of love sound situations, these practical presets allow even novice engineers to achieve the perfect sound, while experienced sound engineers will appreciate the significant time savings that QuickPro Presets™ provide.
The QuickPro Presets can be searched by instrument type and recalled quickly and easily. The presets include HA gain, EQ, Comp and other settings, right down to the channel name and colour. The 1-knob EQ and 1-knob COMP can be used with the QuickPro Presets, providing a super streamlined way to tweak the sound. The output channel preset library includes parameter sets optimised for Yamaha powered speakers, with several variations to match different environments and room sizes.
Dedicated StageMix™ and MonitorMix™ Apps
The Yamaha TF StageMix™ app allows you to intuitively control the TF Rack from anywhere in the venue. The StageMix visually replicates the TouchFlow's panels, and provides you with controls that act instantly to your mix. You can also directly connect your iPad to the TF Rack via USB which delivers extended, more interactive features and displays. The StageMix™ application is compatible with the iPad 2 onwards, and the first generation iPad Mini onwards.
The Yamaha MonitorMix™ is a bespoke app that creates your own individual monitoring system directly on your iPhone. The app features level and panning controls for each aux bus, allowing you to produce monitor mixes that are tailored to your individual requirements. The MonitorMix™ app can also be used to create customised group settings that control a variety of inputs, such as an entire drum kit, with one simple fader. This application is compatible with iPhone 4 models and onwards.
