Intuitive TF Series TouchFlow Operation™ in Rack-mount Form

Sep, 2016

Shizuoka, Japan, September 1st, 2016 – Yamaha is pleased to announce TF-RACK, the newest model in the TF Series digital mixer lineup.

Ever since the first Yamaha digital mixer* was released in 1987, the company has strived to advance digital mixer technology for a wide range of applications. For small events and halls, large-scale outdoor concerts, music production, commercial installations and more, Yamaha offers a comprehensive lineup that delivers established sonic quality, operability, functionality, and reliability.

Yamaha pro audio business unit director Yoshi Tsugawa comments: “The TF Series consoles were a significant landmark in Yamaha’s 30-year history of digital mixer innovation, launching a new era of ‘intuitiveness.’ Now the TF-RACK adds even more versatility and potential to the TF lineup in a rack-mount configuration that offers the same levels of performance and intuitive operability.”

This space-saving model is accessible to a wide range of users, from beginners to seasoned engineers. The TF-RACK offers the same smooth, intuitive setup and operation that has made the TF series a popular choice for a wide range of applications, in a compact unit that is ideal for limited spaces.

Firmware version 3.0 for all TF Series models will be released simultaneously with the TF-RACK. Firmware V3.0 not only provides support for the TF-RACK, but also adds convenient features such as the ability to set up limited-access user accounts for each user, and additional QuickPro Presets™ developed in collaboration with Ultimate Ears.
