CL1 Firmware V2.04 (from V1.61 and older) (Previous version)

Important Notice

Caution when updating

Please use this file when updating CL5/3/1 to V2.04 directly from V1.61 or earlier. Please read the following instructions before updating.

* When updating to V2.04 from V1.70 or later. Use the "CL5/3/1 Firmware V2.04 from 1.70 and later" when updating.

Copy files "CL_SUBP_V202.BIN", "MCLP2_03.PGM" and "C-MD1.BIN" to the root directory of the USB memory. Follow the instructions on the update guide.


*NOTE*
Before copying files, delete all files with extension .PGM and .BIN if any exists in the root directory of the USB memory.
CL and QL Series use different files when updating, but both files use the same name "C-MD1.BIN". Therefore, an error may occur during update when the incorrect "C-MD1.BIN" file is used or left in the root directory.
  • Please do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network.
  • Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts.
    Therefore we strongly recommend that:
    1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
    2. If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.
    * EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.
  • You need to update the Dante-MY16-AUD firmware to V3.3.9 or later before using the Dante-MY16-AUD with the CL series firmware V1.51.
  • Dante Firmware Update Manager v1.4.5.7 included in zip files for CL/R series firmware V2.04 does not support Mac OS X 10.6.8.
    Please use Mac OS X 10.7.5, 10.8.5 or 10.9.
  • The Dante Firmware Update Manager v1.4.7.1 for Windows, included in the zip files for CL series firmware V2.04 does not support Windows XP. Please use Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1
  • When updating, perform the update as described in the “CL5/CL3/CL1 Update Guide.”
    You do not need a Dante firmware updating when you update from the CL firmware V1.70 or later.
    Additionally, delete all files with extensions .PGM and .BIN, if any, in the root directory of the USB memory.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

V2 New Features

  • The TOUCH AND TURN function assigned to one of the USER DEFINED knobs enables you to control the fader in the FADER field of the SELECTED CHANNEL VIEW screen.
  • You can now insert two devices into a single channel or bus.
  • If GC (Gain Compensation) is enabled, you can link the digital gain to the analog gain operation.
  • You can now access the channels assigned to a DCA group simultaneously through the fader banks.
  • You can now assign the Stereo/Mono bus master, Mix bus master, and Matrix bus master channels to a DCA group.
  • You can now unmute a muted channel in the mute group temporarily.
  • Recall Safe parameters are now linked for linked channels.
  • Now supports the Mix Minus function, which removes a specific channel signal from the signals sent to the MIX/MATRIX buses.
  • You can now create a read-only scene memory.
  • You can now compare the sound before and after gain adjustments during GEQ operations.
  • You can now view the gain reduction meters for Dynamics 1 and 2, as well as other information, on the channel name display.
  • Now supports Yamaha Console Extension V2.0.
  • New functions have been added that can be set for GPI OUT.
  • New functions have been added that can be assigned to the USER DEFINED keys, the USER DEFINED knobs and the assignable encoders (GAIN/PAN/ASSIGN knobs).
  • Now supports a latency value of 2.0msec for Dante.
  • Now supports the QL series firmware V1.08.
For details, refer to the CL Firmware V2.0 supplementary manual.

V2 Improvements

  • Now supports Ro8-D SYNC, SYSTEM indicators.
  • In the 8ch popup window of the SELECTED CHANNEL VIEW screen, you can now use the [SEL] keys to switch channels that are displayed.
  • When you initialize the unit, the initial setting of the WORD CLOCK is now changed to DANTE 48k in order to be synchronized to the same clock between devices in the system where multiple CL/QL units are used even with the initial settings.
  • When you initialize the unit including the Dante audio network setting or updated the firmware, the initial setting of "Preferred Master" is now changed to ON. In addition, this setting is now not affected by the console setting and restart, but can be changed on Dante Controller software when needed. With the initial setting, if you change the word clock setting to other than DANTE for a CL/QL unit, the console will preferentially become the clock master, which would prevent clock errors. If needed, you can manually select the clock master on Dante Controller by enabling "Preferred Master" on a single device (the others off), which is always powered on while the system is operational.

Fixed bugs in V2.04

  • Solved a problem of the CL firmware V2.03 in which signals were not sent from STEREO MASTER channels to MATRIX buses, when you inserted into the channels post-fader.
  • Solved a problem in which the output signal changed in 1dB steps, if you adjusted the parameter TOTAL in 0.1dB steps by rotating the knob while pressing and holding it down, when M.BAND DYNA. or M.BAND COMP. was selected as the effect type.
  • Solved a problem of the CL firmware V2.03 in which the setting for DCA ROLL-OUT and FADER BANK SNAPSHOT of USER DEFINED keys and for OUTPUT LEVEL and RECORDER of the USER DEFINED knobs were not reflected, when you loaded the ALL DATA or USER KEY.
  • (CL3 only)Solved a problem of the CL firmware V2.03 in which the channel color indicators of CH1-8 did not light, when you calibrated for adjusting the channel color.
  • Solved a problem of the CL firmware V2.03 in which the popup window was not correctly displayed, when you need to update by the "C-MD1.BIN" file.
  • Solved a problem in which discrepancies might occur in the positions of the faders, if you recalled a scene while operating faders of the channel that Recall Safe was applied to.

Known issue

  • If the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL series consoles.
  • If the SECONDARY PORT setting (REDUNDANT/DAISY CHAIN) of the Dante audio network would not change while the Dante device is not connected with Dante PRIMARY/SECONDARY connectors, no audio signal will pass. Audio will once again pass after the Dante device is connected of after the power for CL has been restarted.
  • Loading of a file created by version V1.15 or older will not include the mount information of Dante devices other than any connected R-series. It is the same when recalling a DANTE INPUT PATCH LIBRARY. Please reset MOUNT, PATCH, and DANTE INPUT PATCH Library data using V1.51 or later if necessary.

NOTICE

  • When setting up the latency in Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • The following device labels are used for detecting a SUPPORTED DEVICE.
    Y###-**********
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)
    *indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or -(hyphen) may be used)
    Up to 31 characters including the 'Y' are supported.
    For the R-series, make sure that the ID indicated by Y###- is not duplicated by any other R-series unit, even if it is a different size.
  • You can use the Console File Converter V2.3.0 for the CL firmware V1.70 and also the CL firmware V2.04

Improvements

  • The limitations on a Dante DEVICE LABEL have been relaxed. (Click for details)
  • The default value is panned hard LR rather than CENTER when PAN MODE is set to PAN for a ST IN on the CL console.
  • If 15 or more channels are registered in the DCA member indication of the OVERVIEW screen, you can now use the multifunction knobs of the Centralogic section to scroll the channels.
  • A link indicator has been added to the CH LINK MODE popup window, making it easier to determine the currently-assigned link group.
  • The cue monitor level range has been expanded to -30 dB -- +20 dB.
  • In the EFFECT popup window, GEQ popup window, and PREMIUM RACK popup window, you can now use the [SEL] keys to switch channels.
  • If TAP TEMPO is assigned to a user defined key, and you specify the BPM (tempo value) by pressing that key, the BPM value is now shown in a popup window.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which GPI IN ACTIVE IND. did not function correctly.
  • Solved a problem in which the Balance value of a Mix or Matrix bus was restricted when the Stereo/Mono setting of a bus was switched by RECALL SAFE, FOCUS RECALL, or GLOBAL PASTE, and then switched again.
  • Solved a problem in which executing CH MOVE would cause an incorrect PAN value for the MATRIX of a ST IN.
  • Solved a problem in which the Post On insert on/off setting of a STEREO bus was not always correctly applied to MATRIX SEND 2--8.
  • Solved a problem in which the warning message "DANTE RESOURCE OVERFLOW" inappropriately appeared when a Dante device was powered-on or when the patch was changed significantly.
  • Solved a problem in which the Dante latency of the CL/R series unit differed from the setting of the actual unit, and would not go below 1.0 ms.
  • Solved a problem in which the SYSTEM indicator would not go dark when an error message shown in the Rio field of the I/O DEVICE screen (SYSTEM indicator blinking or lit) switched to a warning message (SYNC indicator blinking or lit).

Known issue

  • If the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL series consoles.

  • Loading of a file created by version V1.15 or older will not include the mount information of Dante devices other than any connected Rios. It is the same when recalling a DANTE INPUT PATCH LIBRARY. Please reset MOUNT, PATCH, and DANTE INPUT PATCH Library data using V1.51 if necessary.
  • In some specific network switching conditions, a CL-series device may link at 100Mbps instead of the expected 1Gbps. This could be due to the self-checking function of some switches. Use the Device Status screen of Dante Controller to check the link speed of each device. If it shows up as 10 or 100, then disconnect the network cable for this device and re-connect it to correct the problem. To avoid the problem in most cases, first allow the network switches to fully boot up before turning the power on for the CL-series devices.

When updating, perform the update as described in the “CL5/CL3/CL1 Update Guide.

NOTICE

  • When setting up the latency in Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • The following device labels are used for detecting a SUPPORTED DEVICE.
    Y###-**********
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)
    *indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or -(hyphen) may be used)
    Up to 31 characters including the 'Y' are supported.
    For the R-series, make sure that the ID indicated by Y###- is not duplicated by any other R-series unit, even if it is a different size.

CL Firmware V1.61

New Features

  • Shure ULX-D Digital Wireless Systems and Yamaha XMV8280-D/XMV8140-D were added as Dante devices which can be detected / patched in the CL series.
    The ULX-D firmware has to be updated to the version that supports this feature. Refer to Shure's website for details.
  • Added the function which allows you to view the status of the CL series and the R series (except Ro8-D) on the screen of the CL series (click for details).
    Each R series unit is required to be assigned to the REMOTE HA on the DANTE SETUP screen in order to view its status from the console.

Improvements

  • When a USB device becomes disconnected because of excessive USB current, the device can now be reconnected without having to restart the CL series (click for details).
  • Improved a problem in which, depending on the connected devices (a condenser microphone or a direct box), a noise was caused when adjusting their input gain from CL series with +48V enabled, at the point (between +17 dB and +18 dB) where the PAD inside HA is switched on or off.
  • Improved the response time of HA for SCENE RECALL, etc.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which the CL series or Dante-MY16-AUD may partially lose HA gain control of R series units after being powered on for a long period of time with V1.60 firmware. For this reason, V1.60 firmware was withdrawn from our web site.
  • Solved a problem in which the audio of CL series via Dante may very rarely be interrupted for about 15 seconds with the firmware V1.60 or earlier.
  • Solved a problem in which the date and time could not be set using the TOUCH AND TURN function.
  • Solved a problem in which the LED would not light by pushing a USER DEFINED key, when a SPECIFIC CH of CUE was assigned to the key.
  • Solved a problem in which the response of StageMix (iPad app) was slow, when recalling a scene that has a FADE TIME set.

Known issue

  • If the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL series consoles.
  • If the setup of REDUNDANT/DAISY CHAIN is changed while the Dante device is not connected with Dante PRIMARY/SECONDARY connectors, no audio signal will pass. Audio will once again pass after the Dante device is connected of after the power for CL has been restarted.
  • Loading of a file created by version V1.15 or older will not include the mount information of Dante devices other than any connected Rios. It is the same when recalling a DANTE INPUT PATCH LIBRARY. Please reset MOUNT, PATCH, and DANTE INPUT PATCH Library data using V1.51 if necessary.
  • In some specific network switching conditions, a CL-series device may link at 100Mbps instead of the expected 1Gbps. This could be due to the self-checking function of some switches. Use the Device Status screen of Dante Controller to check the link speed of each device. If it shows up as 10 or 100, then disconnect the network cable for this device and re-connect it to correct the problem. To avoid the problem in most cases, first allow the network switches to fully boot up before turning the power on for the CL-series devices.

*If you update the device from the V1.51 firmware, update the both MAIN and SUB firmware. To update the MAIN and SUB firmware, perform operations of only the section “Updating the CL firmware” in the “CL5/CL3/CL1 Update Guide.
If you update the device from other than the V1.51 firmware, update the CL device by following the steps in the “CL5/CL3/CL1 Update Guide.

NOTICE

  • When setting up the latency in Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • Do not change a device label except for the portions shown below as ******. Portions other than ****** are used for the device recognition from CL series.
    Y###-"manufacture name"-"model name"******
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)
    * indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or -(hyphen) may be used)
  • The Dante-MY16-AUD card and DANTE ACCELERATOR card will be recognized as a SUPPORTED
    DEVICE if you assign the device label as follows.
    Dante-MY16-AUD: Y###-Audinate-DANTE-MY16******
    DANTE ACCELERATOR: Y###-Yamaha-DANTE-ACCEL*******
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)

CL Firmware V1.60

[Important Notice]
With V1.60 firmware, we found that CL consoles may partially lose HA gain control of R series units after being powered on for a long period of time. We have released the new firmware V1.61 in which the serious problem was fixed, and strongly recommend to update your CL/R series units with V1.61.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Firmware V1.51

New Features
  • Supports the Scene Preview function.
  • Supports the Help function.
  • Ri8-D, Ro8-D, NXAMP with NXDT104, etc. were added as Dante devices which can be detected / patched in CL series.
  • Added a CUE LEVEL knob to the CUE popup window, allowing adjustment of the Cue level. This can be assigned to a Custom Fader.
  • Added a HPF type select button to the HPF/EQ popup window (1ch), and the magnitude of attenuation has an option of -12dB/oct or -6dB/oct.

Improvements

- Improved the DANTE SETUP screen (click for details).

With the Dante Setup screen, up to 24 units of any I/O device can now be mounted, and up to 8 of them can be registered as remote HA devices.
If the Rio3224-D units with Unit ID 1/2 are connected, they will be automatically mounted as I/O devices and registered as HA remote devices by the default settings. The other devices need to be manually mounted and registered.
Keep in mind that, according to this Dante Setup enhancement, each setting number of I/O device's Unit ID, Device Mount ID, and Remote HA ID can be different. It is up to the user to make a logical setting.

SETUP
The Console ID can be OFF when 5 or more consoles are connected. However, the normal HA control functionality will be disabled on this console. (Though external HA can still be controlled via Slot 1).

DEVICE MOUNT
Mount up to 24 units of any I/O devices manually here. Online devices and offline devices can be chosen, as well as multiple DVS units.
The Unit ID of each device is used only for the device label, such as “Y001” which is a form of identification. These devices can be mounted in any order, regardless of the Unit ID.
Two units of Rio3224-D and a single DVS are automatically mounted by default.

Note:
In order to mount the Dante-MY16-AUD card or the Dante Accelerator card as Supported Device, its device label must be changed via Dante Controller as follows:
Dante-MY16-AUD: Y###-Audinate-DANTE-MY16******
DANTE-ACCEL: Y###-Yamaha-DANTE-ACCEL*******
### is a Unit ID 000–FFF (3-digit hexadecimal number) containing the digits 0–9 and uppercase A–F.
* indicates any desired character (alphabets, numerals, or -)

REMOTE HA ASSIGN
Register up to 8 units of HA remote devices manually from the 24 units of I/O devices in the DEVICE MOUNT page.
They can be chosen regardless of the Unit IDs or the mount order.
Two units of Rio3224-D are automatically registered by default.

- Added the I/O DEVICE screen, and the Dante device setup function was separated from the VIRTUAL RACK screen (click for details).

The new I/O Device screen, independently from the Virtual Rack screen, allows more flexible control of each I/O device.

DANTE PATCH
Lists 24 units of the I/O devices mounted in the Dante Setup.
Dante Input Patch routes 64 channels from I/O devices to the CL console. Pressing the AUTO SETUP will automatically patch them in order of the mounted I/O devices.
Touch the I/O device to access the OUTPUT PATCH, which routes the CL Dante outputs to the I/O device’s outputs. 2 units of Rio3224-D are automatically patched by default.

Rio
Shows the information of each of the mounted I/O devices.
The scroll buttons at the lower-left corner switch among the 24 I/O devices.
This also shows the device’s firmware version as well as each channel name of the output ports.

- Integrated function with Nuendo Live now works even with a CL console that is set to an ID other than #1 (click for details).

Any single PC can now be specified for the Nuendo Live integration, regardless of the Console ID or the DVS’s mount order.

DVS
Specify an any single PC with DVS running.
The CL with Console ID #2 to #4 can also specify a DVS. However, control of a single PC cannot be shared with multiple consoles (though audio can be shared).

SPECIFIED IP ADDRESS
When using the Dante Accelerator card instead of DVS, specify the IP address of the PC’s network port and connect it to enable Nuendo Live integration. However, control of a single PC cannot be shared with multiple consoles (though audio can be shared).

Note
  • The Console File Converter supporting CL V1.51 will be released in early March. The conversion to other models from CL V1.51 cannot be performed until then.

CL Firmware V1.15

Fixed Bug
Solved the following problems:
  • CL could not recognize a Dante device if its device label had less than six characters.
  • After editing a number of channel labels for one device in Dante Controller, the network module of the Dante device might need to be repaired by Yamaha service.
  • When the CL was turned on, or when the Wordclock setting was changed, on a rare occasion audio might not output.
