LS9 Gain Structure
« on: August 24, 2010, 06:34:51 PM »

Hello all

I've been noticing a few things about the LS9 that I haven't noticed much on other digital boards, and analog consoles as well.

First, and maybe it's just a setting I've missed, but when nothing is cued, the master led's are at one level, and then when you cue the L/R master bus, the levels are lower.

Second, the levels are different when you push all the channels and lower the master, than when you run the channels much lower, and push the master to +5 on the fader.

Has anyone else notices this? I've never encountered this on analog boards, or a few other digital desks that aren't made by Yamaha.

It's not a problem, but just something I've noticed while using it.

Cheers

I'm not sure I understand your description completely but I'm thinking that it has to do with you looking at the master AFL (post fader) when not cueing and pre fader when cueing. Would that explain it?

I've never noticed that, but if you go into your monitoring/metering section make sure the meters are doing what you think they should be.

When I got mine and had reset it I noticed the same thing. The meters were set pre fader or something like that.

Yeah.. you can change the metering point. In Rob's case, it was set Pre-EQ, which also put it pre-fader.

Check your eq and dynamics sections for your masters and inputs. EQ has an "attenuation" function that could be set on the plus side. Also, make up gain could be turned up in the comp.
