Main Revisions and Enhancements

Fixed bug (V3.51)

  • Solved a problem (of V3.50) in which if you pressed the SENDS ON FADER key of any AUX bus after pressing a SENDS ON FADER FX1 or FX2 key, the position of the master fader remains at 0dB (nominal), regardless of the actual AUX bus master level.

New features (V3.50)

  • Channels 1 – 8 can be used with the Dugan Automixer.
    Scenes saved via the TF series V3.11 or earlier do not include the Automixer parameters. This means that Automixer parameters will not change even such Scenes are recalled.
  • Added AUX Send point selection, Pre EQ or Pre Fader, for a channel to which AUX Send is set to Pre.
  • Added the “frame” unit for the Delay Time parameter setting in the Monitor Delay effect of OUTPUT channels and the OUTPUT DELAY effect.
  • Added the PFL Trim setting in the MONITOR CUE screen.
  • Added the stereo pair setting for the MATRIX1/2 bus and MATRIX 3/4 bus.
  • Added the “MTRX1/2” and “MTRX3/4” options to the RECORD source selection menu of the RECORDER screen.

Specification changes (V3.50)

  • Changed the “Last CUE” mode to the CUE stack* operation, same as with the “MIX CUE” mode.
    *CUE stack: turning off the CUE for a low priority channel enables the CUE for a high priority channel to be turned on again.
  • Changed the [ON] key function when the [INPUT] key or the [FX] key of the MUTE section on the top panel is turned on.
    V3.11 or earlier: Pressing an [ON] key turns the temporary cancelation for mute function on/off
    V3.50 or later: Pressing an [ON] key temporary removes the channel from the mute group

Fixed bug (V3.50)

  • Solved a problem (of V3.10) in which, when an unsupported Dante device in HA remote was patched to an Input channel of TF, unexpected Virtual indicator appeared in the INPUT screen of the corresponding channel.

former version information.

Fixed bug (V3.11)

  • Solved a problem (of V3.10) in which touching the OK button on the TIME screen disabled key and fader operation, followed by the meter display stopping.

New features (V3.10)

  • Now supports the "Dante Device Lock" function.
  • Now supports the AES67 standard for audio‐over‐IP interoperability.

Fixed bug (V3.10)

  • Solved a problem in which DCA function would not turn on if you pressed the [ON] key once when the “INPUT” function was set to on in the Auto CH Select section of the PREFERENCE screen.

V2.50 to V3.01

Additional Function

  • Added an Access Permission function via user accounts.
  • Added a FADER section to the OVERVIEW screen.
    Set the [HOME] key function in the PREFERENCE screen to display the FADER section. For detailed information, refer to the TF V3 Reference Manual.
  • Added an “EQ Band Select” function that can be assigned to the [USER DEFINED KEYS].
  • Added the following functions that can be assigned to the [USER DEFINED KNOBS].
    Selected CH: EQ Band Select
    Selected CH: Digital Gain
    Selected CH: Send Level (FX, AUX, and SUB)
    CH Select
    CH Level
  • Added a “Power Saving Mode” function in the BRIGHTNESS screen.
    This function automatically sets the screen brightness to low if no operation is performed during a specified amount of time.
  • Ensured that the STEREO/SUB Level Link function maintains offsets.
    [Notices]
    Offset values will also be saved in a Scene. However, Scenes saved via the TF series V2.50 or earlier do not include Offset values. This means that Offset values will not change even if such Scenes are recalled.
  • Added bus sends from the AUX9/10 – AUX19/20 busses to the SUB bus.
  • Added a SEND FROM screen to the FX1/FX2 channels.
  • Added the Matrix1-4 meters in the TOOLBAR.
  • New Presets have been added to the default Presets of the Channel Library. To add them to the Library list, execute “Initialize All Memory” after updating to V3.0.

Specification changes(V3.00)

  • Added the threshold link function of the “Multi Band Comp” effect to keep offsets between the Low, Mid, and High parameters. In addition, the Make Up parameter has been removed to avoid a sudden change of volume.
  • Changed the Input Gain offset link action between stereo link channels to keep the offset value even if the Input Gain is set to maximum or minimum.
  • The SYSTEM SETUP screen and the USER SETUP screen have been consolidated to the SETUP screen.
  • Added an Initialize NY64-D screen in the Maintenance screen.
    Initializing the NY64-D feature was included in the “Initialize All Memory” function in V2.50 or earlier. This feature has become an independent function from the V3.0 firmware.
  • Changed the specification to not load the settings of channel selection, fader bank selection, and SENDS ON FADER to the TF setting file (.TFF).
  • Changed the “Monitor Source Select” operation of the USER DEFINED KEY from simple selection to toggling between selection and off.

Specification changes(V3.01)

  • (TF-RACK only) Changed OMNI OUT Patch settings of the Preset Scenes to “ST L=OMNI 7” and “ST R=OMNI 8,” which matches the rear panel printing.
    This change will be reflected when executing the “Initialize All Memory” function after updating to V3.01.

Improvements

  • Improved the volume curve in a muting of internal HA gain control at each 6dB point.
  • Improved the action of motor faders.

Fixed bugs(V3.00)

  • Solved a problem in which the Stereo Link function might cause a data loop for the HA Gain control of the Tio1608-D when some TF series units having the HA Control set to on exist in the same Dante network.
  • Solved a problem in which a TF setting file could not be loaded by a certain operation procedure.
  • Solved a problem in which the Send Pan parameter set to center when executing the “All Nominal” context menu in the SEND FROM screen.
  • Solved some minor bugs.

Fixed bugs(3.01)

  • Solved a problem in which, when operating the analog gain (A.Gain) of a channel not set to the Stereo Link function, and if Stereo Link has been set to the channel using the same INPUT jack (TF5:CH1-8 and CH33-40, TF3:CH1-16 and CH25-40, TF1:CH1-16 and CH17-32), the unlinked channel would also link to the corresponding next channel regardless of the input source selection.
  • Solved a problem in which the “SYNPHONIC” effect worked incorrectly; not 2IN/2OUT, but 1IN/2OUT.
  • (TF1 and TF-RACK only) Solved a problem of the Quick Config function in which muting for a Tio1608-D set to UNIT ID 3 would not be cleared depending on a certain procedure.

Known issue

  • A message “Two or More HA Controllers may Cause Conflict” may appear when loading a TF setting file (.TFF) while the “HA Control” option in the Slot Setup menu is off. In this case, the progress bar showing the loading status may disappear. However, the initialization otherwise works properly.

V2.01 to V2.50

Additional Function

  • Added four MATRIX busses and four MATRIX channels.
     You can now send the post ON signals from the AUX1-20, STEREO, and SUB channels to the MATRIX busses.
     The MATRIX channels have 4-band EQ and DELAY. For detailed information, refer to the TF series Reference Manual.
Notices
Scenes saved via the TF series V2.01 or earlier do not include the MATRIX parameters. This means that MATRIX parameters will not change even such Scenes are recalled.
  • Added the “Output Delay” effect type which simply has only a delay time parameter.
  • Added the firmware update function for the NY64-D option card.For detailed information, refer to the firmware update guide.

Specification Changes

  • When executing the Default menu in the EFFECT screen, the default parameter values of the selected effect type will be set.

Improvements

  • Improved the available range of adjusting the brightness of the CH Name displays. (BRIGHTNESS screen)
  • The maximum units of HA controllable Dante I/O devices has been expanded from three to eight. (The connected Tio1608-D set to UNIT ID 1-3 is counted in the limit.)
    In addition, the maximum units of connectable Yamaha Pro Audio devices and the applications for Yamaha Pro Audio devices such as the R Remote have also been expanded from 20 to 24.
Notice
The NY64-Dfirmware update to the version “3.8.0.24 3.5.1.8 1.2.8” or later is required.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which when connecting a TF series and TF editor/TF StageMix, the setting in the TF series and the setting in the TF Editor/TF StageMix did not match after executing the Compare menu or the Paste menu in GEQ (Flex12).
  • Solved a problem in which the gate would open when operating the Hold parameter of the channel GATE.
  • Solved a problem in which executing Store and Edit menu operations to the same Library continuously over a short time in the LIBRARY screen would result in not being able to recall a Scene, or files not appearing in the SAVE/LOAD window.
  • Solved a problem in which settings for Recall Safe, User Defined Controls, and Custom Fader Bank in a TF setting file saved via TF V1.xx could not be loaded when using the File Load custom function.
  • Solved a problem in which, when the Pitch 1 parameter and the Fine 1 parameter of Pitch 1 of the DUAL PITCH effect are set to 0, the pitch shifting of Pitch 2 would not work.
  • Solved a problem in which a message “Two or More HA Controllers may Cause Conflict” may have appeared when initializing the console while the “HA Control” option in the Slot Setup menu was off.
  • Solved some minor bugs.

Known Issue

  • A message “Two or More HA Controllers may Cause Conflict” may appear when loading a TF setting file (.TFF) while the “HA Control” option in the Slot Setup menu is off. In this case, the progress bar showing the loading status may disappear. However, the initialization otherwise works properly.

V2.01

Additional Function

  • Now supports NY64-D option card for Dante Interface. Connection with Dante devices (such as Tio1608-D, R series, etc.) is available via the NY64-D. In addition, HA control is also available with Tio1608-D and R series.
Notices
- In this version, there are limitations in connections with devices in the same network. You can connect less than 20 Yamaha PA devices or the R Remote application, of which three Dante I/O devices are available for HA control. The Tio1608-D set to UNIT ID 1 to 3 are included in these three only if connected.
- This version can communicate audio and HA control of R series V3.11 if Quick Config is disabled on TF series, and patching is made from/to NY64-D by Dante Controller software. However, if you will share the same R series I/O rack with CL/QL series, we recommend to disable the "HA Control" option on TF series before making the patch, then manage the HA control from CL/QL series.
  • Added “Ping Pong Delay” and “Dual Pitch” effect types.
  • Added a function to control the gain settings of GEQ via faders.
  • Added the “LOAD SELECT” function to be able to individually load selected settings of the TF setting file.
  • Added the “All Nominal” function to set the send level settings of all AUX busses or SUB bus to nominal (0 dB) in the menu of each SEND FROM screen.
  • Added the “Dup. STEREO” function to set the send level settings of AUX busses or SUB bus to the same settings of the channel faders in the menu of each SEND FROM screen.
  • Added the “[TAP] Key Blink” function to disable blinking of the [TAP] key in the PREFERENCE screen.
  • Added the function to send to the SUB bus from ST IN1/2 or FX RTN 1/2.

  • The pause function in recording is now available.

Fixed bugs (2.00)

  • Solved a problem in which when operating the analog gain when the input source setting has been set to “INPUT” and channel link has been set to the channel, the analog gain of the channel using the same input signal of the INPUT port (TF5: CH1-8 and CH33-40, TF3: CH1-16 and CH25-40, TF1: CH1-16 and CH17-32) will link regardless of the input source selection.
  • Solved the problem in which the meter could not hold the peak of the OVER level.
  • Solved the problem in which some meters would not work properly when loading the setting file with a different meter point setting.
  • Solved some minor bugs.

Fixed bugs (2.01)

  • Solved the problem in which some faders would rarely indicate slightly shifted values when operating the fader bank or SENDS ON FADER.
  • Solved the problem in which connecting a USB cable between Mac and the console while both are running would occasionally halt the signal processing, and the console would not restore until restarting it.
  • Solved the problem in which a message "Dante Version Mismatch" may appear for a few seconds when making patches from R series V3.11 (Rio3224-D, Rio1608-D, Ri8-D) via NY64-D by Dante Controller.
  • Solved some minor bugs.
