Hey All,I am trying to get a Yamaha DM1000 to connect to Studio Manager on a laptop running Windows 7 64bit, and am struggling to get it fully integrated.In Studio Manager, I can see that the meters are working, but I get no feed back from the console as to any other settings - e.g. what positions my faders are in, what has been assigned to remote layers 1 & 2 etc. In addition, when I try and synchronize the DM1000 with Studio Manager the synchronization stops at 3%.Attached are 3 screen grabs, the first 2 show my settings in Studio Manager and the 3rd shows the synchronization failed message. I have also attached a photo of the DM1000 settings page as I currently have it.
Make sure that you have the latest versions of the firmware and software, or at least that the versions you have are compatible. You can find this info on the Yamaha site.Why do you have all that stuff assigned to USB ports? If you are not using them, turn them off.Mac
From reading the instructions, it seems that the only thing that should be set is Studio Manager in Special Functions - however I got nothing from Studio Manager with just this. I then tried adding a USB to the Receive and Transmit in General section, and Studio Manager started working. I then wondered if I needed Machine control or DAW enabled in order to get Studio Manager to fully work (basically you are watching me stabbing in the dark!).
You should only have Studio Manager set to USB, and a USB A-B cable between the computer and the console.Check on THIS PAGE to see what versions of firmware and software are compatible with each other.The other option is to call Yamaha tech support. They have always been very helpful for me.Mac
Hey MacThanks for the link - it looks like my problem is with the DM1000's current firmware (2.02) is not being compatible with Studio Manager 2.3.1. There's currently an event in full swing here, but I will take another look once they're finished to see if I can get the firmware up to date. Will report back my findings.Thanks again for your replies on this.Cheers,Paul
No changes to the desk until you're back in the shop.
So I have been in a bit of a chicken and egg situation... According to Yamaha I couldn't update the firmware without losing all my user settings (and there are a lot!), but I also couldn't connect to studio manager without updating the firmware - which I needed to do in order to back up my user settings (although Yamaha supply early versions of Studio Manager - none were compatible with my firmware).To resolve this, I went old school and did a sys exclusive data dump into a DAW so that user settings were saved, and then updated the firmware. It turns out (at least in my case) that this didn't erase all my settings, so I was able to plug straight into Studio Manager, and Bob's your Aunties Brother, everything worked perfectly.Thank you to everyone who has inputted to this thread, I am now up and running and extremely happy!
Paul, you can download earlier versions of Studio Manager and the DM1000 editor. They will see your mixer as-is, which is what I was referring to in my earlier post. It was not necessary to do a sysex dump.
