Pure, natural sound and powerful processing
In order to produce great mixes, audio engineers need to have uncolored, natural sound as a starting point. That's why the Yamaha QL1 features top-shelf circuitry and components — to provide you with pristine audio from input to output. And when you're ready to get creative, the QL1's powerful Virtual Circuity Modeling (VCM) technology effectively captures various pieces of analog gear right down to their individual components (including models influenced by an 1176, LA-2A, and EQ-1A), injecting your mix with an abundance of authentic-sounding analog vibe. Of course, the crown jewel of the QL1's analog emulations is its VCM versions of the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5033 EQ and 5043 compressor developed in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs! You also get Yamaha REV-X reverb processors and a graphic EQ for your buses.
Revolutionary Dan Dugan automatic mixer
The Yamaha QL1 comes armed with Dan Dugan Sound Design's revolutionary automatic microphone mixing technology. This remarkable processor, which can be loaded into up to 16 channels simultaneously, lets you automatically optimize your microphone gain distribution for speech applications. The result is smooth, natural gain control — the QL1 almost mixes itself! This is a lifesaver for a non-engineer volunteer who runs live sound in a house of worship or at a community event. This is especially useful in non-scripted situations, as it allows you to concentrate on the balance rather than having to chase talkers on the faders.
Two-track recording and multitrack options
If you're wanting to record your live shows, the Yamaha QL1 makes it easy. You can either make a 2-track recording straight to a standard USB flash drive (in MP3 format), or you can create a full-blown multitrack recording with Nuendo Live or your DAW choice via Dante. Multitrack recording is great for performing "virtual sound checks" when the band isn't available, and for making professional recordings of your live shows. On top of that, you can play back sound files (in MP3, AAC, or WMA format) from your flash drive, for convenient playback of background music or sound effects without the need for extra playback equipment.
- Record two tracks directly to a flash drive
- Play back files from a flash drive
- Create multitrack recordings with your DAW via Dante
- Up to 32 tracks can be recorded simultaneously
