TECH NOTE Fastrack VS Version 2.1 and later

YAMAHA 03D SERIAL AUDIO MIXER

The Fastrack VS hybrid editing system interfaces to the 03D Serial Audio Mixer with a 6-pin DIN to 9-pin RS-422 serial control cable and Yamaha 03D audio mixer serial protocol. Direct control of each individual fader and the learning of manual adjustments are possible.

Interconnect Cable An interconnect cable can be constructed using a PS-2 mouse/keyboard plug and wire and a Serial RS-422 female connector. This cable connects between the HOST port on the Yamaha O3D and a serial (male-male) cable attached to the Fastrack serial breakout (or use a male connector if your cable is long enough to reach the Fastrack serial breakout). Since the numbering on PS-2 connectors varies or is frequently missing, please refer to the letter positions noted here for the PS-2 plug (the 9-pin conforms to standards). Both 9-pin connector and PS-2 plug are viewed from the "front."

Note: The jumper between the top two pins on the PS-2 plug is essential for status reporting from the 03D mixer to Fastrack so it can "learn" manual changes to fader levels.

Mixer Setup 1. Connect the serial control cable from a Fastrack VS "COM" or "P#" port to the 6-pin “TO HOST” serial port on the rear of the 03D console. 2. At the 03D control panel “SETUP” section (top, left of the mixer), press the [UTILITY] button until the “MIDI / HOST” tab is selected. 3. At the “MIDI / HOST” tab, use the cursor buttons (under the PARAMETER wheel) to select, and then press the [ENTER] button, to accept the following:

Monitoring to amplifier and speakers is from the MONITOR OUT (1/4" TRS) connections Program Out is from the ST OUT (XLR) connections Analog inputs 1-8 use balanced XLR connections Analog inputs 9-16 use 1/4" TRS (tip/ring/sleeve) connections. Monitor outs uses 1/4" TRS connections. Bus outs use 1/4" TRS connections. ST Out uses XLR and is the PROGRAM OUT to any/all record channels.

MONITORING The 03D has a monitoring bus that can be remotely controlled as a preview bus; therefore, all audio previews should be done utilizing this preview switcher in the 03D. Set each source's BUS Out and monitoring in the [PAN/ROUTE] section as below for four channels per source:

The BUS Outputs (1-4) are fed to the RECORD device for recording (or AES Out if the YGADI option is installed) and the MONITOR OUT connected to amplifier and speakers. The ST OUT is the signal that is monitored on the MONITOR OUT (when set in [Bus to ST] to OFF {not highlighted}), allowing preview monitoring to be controlled via the 03D mixer. The MONITOR OUT has a volume control knob for convenient speaker volume adjustment.

AUDIO MIXER FILES The specific mixer protocol files to be used on the Assignment Page [Shift]+[Assign] are in the MIXER folder on the C:/ drive of the Fastrack computer, in the Ftruntime folder. The 2 channel (stereo) version of the 03D driver is labeled 03D_2CH.MIX and has only two differences from the 4 channel version: Name=03D_2 and the FaderCount=2.
