Yamaha launch TF-RACK in TF Series digital mixer line-up

Yamaha has announced the launch of TF-RACK, the newest model in the TF Series digital mixer lineup.

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.

Main Features includes:

• Instantly load settings for any situation via a simple scene recall. A number of scenes are preset to give new users a head start, and dual scene memory banks make it easy to organize scenes by music or event type, for example.
• 1-knob Comp, 1-knob EQ, and more advanced features that are highly valued in other Yamaha products make it possible to achieve a polished sound with minimum effort in the shortest possible time.
• QuickPro Presets for specific musical instruments and microphones have been designed by respected engineers and manufacturers to provide quick, easy access to effective settings.
• Recallable Yamaha D-PRE microphone preamplifiers ensure that every nuance of the original sound is effectively captured.
• Powerful processing and effects featuring renowned Yamaha SPX processing provide a broad range of options for sonic manipulation.
• A TF-RACK unit located in the stage wings can be remotely controlled from an iPad, for example.
