TF Series Update V4.0 Takes TouchFlow Operation™ to New Heights

March 28, 2019. Shizuoka, Japan. - Yamaha TF series digital mixers with intuitive touch-panel operation gain enhanced control and versatility with software update version 4.0.

Software update V4.0 adds a Selected Channel View that provides access to the main parameters for the currently selected input channel in a single display. Combined with the mixer’s Touch & Turn Knobs, this new view provides even more intuitive, efficient operation. V4.0 also adds a scene fade time function that offers new flexibility for scene management, particularly in theatrical applications. Support for DZR-D and DXS-XLF-D series speakers has been expanded with speaker amp mute control directly from the mixer display.

The Yamaha research and development team has cooperated closely with microphone and IEM manufacturers, as well as a large number of sound engineers, to create an ample selection of new QuickPro Presets™ for a variety of microphones, in-ear monitors, and speakers. The new presets include in-ear monitors from Westone Laboratories, a producer of universal and custom fit models that are highly regarded by users of all levels around the world. These powerful presets make it easier for novice engineers to achieve great sound, while reducing the amount of time experienced engineers need to spend on setup.
