Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, announced the release of its M7CL version 3.5 firmware and File Converter software application. The File Converter, available for both Mac OS and Windows platforms, converts file formats between PM5D and M7CL, as well as M7CL and LS9 consoles, providing data compatibility between consoles. A PM5D or LS9, for example, can be brought in to replace an M7CL, using mix data originally created on the M7CL. The File Converter function will also convert parameters for multiple scenes, according to the company.
Yamaha said several new features had been added to the new M7CL 3.5 firmware release. It now includes new functions that will enhance operation and efficiency of the M7CL console, company officials said. New alternate functions for the Selected Channel have been added that can be assigned to user-defined keys for even greater efficiency.
And when using HA Remote signal output from slot 1 on an M7CL-48ES, up to three additional SB168-ES stage box units can be connected via MY16-ES64 and MY16-EX cards installed in the expansion slots, allowing connectivity for six stage box units.
"Based on feedback from our customers, Yamaha M7CLv3.5 enhancements have been developed that will provide even more flexible mixing options," said Kevin Kimmel, Yamaha mixer product manager, in a statement.
Both the M7CL version 3.5 firmware updates and Yamaha File Converter software will be available for download at no charge.
