Operate with Ease, thanks to Yamaha's TouchFlow Operation

The Yamaha TF-RACK rack mount digital mixer is unbelievably easy to use, while also being super powerful. You can operate this console with amazing speed and freedom, thanks to the TF-RACK's TouchFlow Operation.

It doesn't matter whether you are an engineer with years of experience, a volunteer running sound for you place of worship, or even a band doing their own sound - operating the TF-RACK is intuitive, and every user can mix like never before.

Plug a microphone in, fire up the Yamaha TF-RACK and we're sure you'll agree - this console sounds great! This compact mixing solution is packed with Yamaha's D-PRE preamps that deliver an accurate, smooth sound with outstanding clarity.

Touch screens are part of our everyday life, and the Yamaha TF-RACK makes use of it's high resolution screen with a smooth workflow based around movements we are now accustomed to. You can pinch, swipe, scroll - everything that has become second nature to us is used on the TF-RACK's screen to make it feel like you've been operating it for years.

Thanks to Yamaha's innovative design and TouchFlow operation, this rack mount digital mixer is light years ahead of the pack!

Introducing "TouchFlow" Operation

Smooth, fast, intuitive and refined - Yamaha's TouchFlow Operation on the TF-RACK provides you with simple, yet comprehensive control that allows you to mix with incredible efficiency and effectiveness. As a result, you can explore your creative side and mix like never before.

Everything is laid out in a way that puts all the consoles functions directly accessible to the user. The TF-RACK's touchscreen is smooth and fast, and everything you need is right at your fingertips. 

The Touch and Turn knob beside the touchscreen controls all parameters, just choose the function from the screen and the knob switches to controlling the selected parameter.

Mix Like a Professional Thanks to Yamaha's 1 Knob Operation

Yamaha approached the design of the console with the everyday user in mind. You no longer need to be an experienced sound engineer to get the best possible sound!
Using the 1 Knob Operation on the Yamaha TF-RACK, you can control equalisers and apply compression like a pro.

This enables the casual engineer or volunteer to bring their mix to life, applying compressors where needed and adjusting EQ easily and effectively from the one Touch and Turn knob.

Simply select the desired function via the touchscreen, and turn the knob to automatically apply the desired amount to make your vocals stand out in the mix, make the snare drum punchy, add some definition to your kick - the choices are endless.

Not only for the novice, this also makes the professional engineers life much easier!

Setting Gain Structure the Easy Way with the Yamaha TF-RACK

Setting a correct gain structure is crucial to the mix.

Perhaps the most important aspect of mixing, this can also be a difficult process. Input gain is the first adjustment made on a incoming signal. Get this wrong, and every parameter after this is negatively affected. 

Yamaha has taken the worry out of setting gain with their GainFinder feature, and made it quicker and easier for everybody. GainFinder is a visual indication of the input gain, and works similar to an instrument tuner - not enough gain and the meter will show you, just like a tuner shows a note is flat. If the signal is too hot, the meter goes the other way to signal you to adjust it back a little. 

The goal is to have the meter in the centre and lit up green, and this is easily accomplished thanks to the visual indications over the 5 increments shown. Setting the correct gain structure like a professional is now as simple as tuning a guitar, thanks to Yamaha's GainFinder.

Of course, using GainFinder is optional - you can also set your gain structure the traditional way using the solo button and the TF-RACK's level meters.

Yamaha's QuickPro Presets make your life Easier

The Yamaha TF-RACK is the most intuitive and easy to use rack mount digital console on the market, thanks to the practical and effective QuickPro presets Yamaha have loaded on the console.

Yamaha have worked with the major microphone manufacturer's like Shure, Sennheiser and Audio Technica, as well as world class audio engineers to create these helpful and effective presets that will help you get your mix perfected faster than ever. Simply select the preset for the microphone you are using and the input gain, EQ, dynamics and much more are automatically recalled.

This takes the worry out of mixing for novice engineers, and saves professional engineers time while giving them an accurate starting point for them to build on.

World Class D-Pre Preamps

Let's face it, you just can't get a great mix unless you have great preamps!

Yamaha have loaded the TF-RACK with their world class, highly acclaimed D-Pre microphone preamps. These provide you with a clean, precise and clear sound that captures the signal source perfectly. These preamps allow you to build an amazing mix, without having to apply huge amounts of EQ to get there.

Get precise, powerful control with Yamaha's Apps

A trio of dedicated apps makes offline editing, wireless mixing, and personal monitor mixing a breeze.

Utilising a Mac or PC, TF Editor provides complete offline editing and setup of the Yamaha TF-RACK, and you can continue to control the TF-RACK when your mixer is online and in use. Your multi touch-screen equipped PC can use the same gestures as the console itself, and it can also function as a remote mixing device via Wi-Fi.

Load TF StageMix on your iPad to mix from anywhere - Work from the audience position, in front of floor monitors, or onstage to ensure that every inch of the venue sounds great. TF MonitorMix works with your iOS device, allowing up to 10 musicians to create their own personal monitor mix.

Polish Your Mix with Yamaha SPX Based Effects

Built in to the Yamaha TF-RACK are eight powerful effects processors, providing you the tools needed to polish your mix to perfection. Add some reverb, delay, modulation - even multiband compression!

The TF-RACK's effects are simply amazing.
