E Q U I P M E N T T E S T
Yamaha may have finally found the catalyst to make mLAN fly and produced a damn good mixer/interface in the process. Cal Orr gets connected.
he 01X is amazing! Sorry, but I had to blurt that out before I carry on much further. The 01X is a software/hardware controller hybrid that, after eight weeks of use, has proven to be an invaluable team player in the studio. The 01X lands the many benefits of Yamahas mLAN protocol system right in your lap. Its sheer depth of interconnectivity will, in all likelihood, start a revolution among those who already have mLAN ports on existing devices and will surely see large numbers hopping on the mLAN wagon sooner rather than later. Yamaha has always been into connectivity; you just have to look at the 0 Series of consoles to know that. Up until now, mLAN devices have only given you the edge pieces of the possible
mLAN routing puzzle; now the 01X gives you the guts. While its a powerful mLAN router the 01X also packs eight-in/four-out conversion, as well as interfacing with Midi gear (via two Midi in and out ports) and other digital units via a coaxial stereo S/PDIF in and out. The 01X hardware unit comes complete with an impressive software suite: SQ01 (Yamahas own Multitrack program), Studio Manager (a software mixer window that displays all the 01Xs hardware mixer settings, including dynamics and EQ) and a Channel Module that can be used in the SQ01 software as well as other VST hosts. The great thing about the Channel
Module is that you can use it to mix on either a laptop or desktop computer without the 01X even being present; and you can port the settings of the Channel Module to run off the 01X hardware at a later date. This means it can give your whole system a DSP boost without using computer processor resources. Yamaha has also enhanced the software suite, with three VST/Audio Unit plug-ins for computer-based software operation but more on that later. As mentioned in last issues preview, the 01X has 28 digital channels. However, the physical inputs/converters only total eight ins (A/D) and four outs (D/A), plus stereo co-axial S/PDIF in/out. The I/O complement is expanded thanks to two mLAN portals appearing as mLAN channels in the 01X. Conversely, if you want to run the 01X converters at 24-bit/96k be aware that running a high sample rate of 88.1k (Mac only) and 96k halves the 01X internal track count to 14. I dont really see this as a problem since most recording folks I know are currently running at 24-bit/48k, but for those wanting to future-proof, its worth taking this into consideration. Inside the 01X there are two digital stereo effects engines based on Yamahas SPX technology. The effects themselves are first-rate and easy to use via the hardware or in the Studio Manager software. Again, be prepared to downsize from two effects to one when using higher sample rates. Of course, you can use the 01X simply as a stand-alone 28-channel digital mixer if you wish, but in order to record into your DAW of choice you need either a Pentium 1.2GHz or higher running Windows XP or alternatively a Mac with a G4/900 processor or better running OS 9.2 or higher. Mac or PC users will need a spare Firewire port running at least S400 (400Mb/s) protocol as this is the bus speed of the mLAN network.
If youre considering using the 01X as a stand-alone mixer no installation is necessary just set the 01X wordclock to internal and away you go. But if you want to record a mix on to separate channels and use the 01X for its converters as a DAW front end, youll
need to install the mLAN network onto your host computer and set the wordclock to external. Thankfully, this process, with the units various mLAN utilities, is an easy undertaking. After installation, the controller and recording aspects of the 01X worked well in both Sonar 3.1 and Logic Audio 5.5.1. The 01X also has templates for controlling Nuendo/Cubase and Digital Performer, as well as a General mode.
Ive had the 01X for a couple of months now and in that time Ive recorded various voices and instruments with an AKG 414, a Neumann U47 FET as well as several well-known Shure dynamics. Throughout this time the 01Xs mic preamps have performed well theyre neutral-sounding with high headroom. I know this might sound a little non-committal, but with the 01X, you have to judge the sound of the preamps while bearing in mind the impact of the A/D conversion. In this regard I found signals coming into the 01X via the preamps to have a high-resolution sound that was uncoloured. Line level signals were equally well represented after the conversion stage. I must say though, I was a little bewildered by the omission of a pad switch, insert point and 6.25mm jack inputs on at least the first two channels. I guess these oversights are intended to encourage users to purchase Yamahas own i88x mLAN mic pre converter box with inserts but for mine, these omission were a bit restrictive. The other consideration in all this (including the lack of other digital I/O as standard, i.e., Adat and TDIF), is that Yamaha doesnt want to discourage those thirdparty developers who have already joined the mLAN highway or are thinking of joining by providing the end user with a totally comprehensive device (leaving aside price considerations for a moment). And so far, this move has proven popular: the likes of Apogee and Presonus are just the tip of a growing iceberg of manufacturers committed to making appendage mLAN devices that provide further digital conversion options and digital I/O synth rack-style products.
The layout of the 01X control surface is spacious, given the modest proportions of what is essentially a 19-inch rack unit without the ears. The interface is pretty workmanlike and would feel familiar to users of digital workstations such as Rolands VS series. (Indeed the 01X could be the crossover product that lures a workstation user into becoming a computerbased DAW user.) Navigating the hardware settings of the 01X from the unit itself is very easy. The deck is logically set out and ergonomically designed. Starting at the top
of the 01X there are eight mic/line gain controls, and to their right, a headphone volume control. The 19cmwide LCD green-screen directly below the preamps contains all the signal level displays and parameters; its simple and easy to read and does the job. The knobs below the LCD readout, which act by default as pan pots, also control multiple parameter values and double as Function and Selection buttons the knobs also act as push-button switches. Each of the eight channels contains a channel on and off button that doubles as a solo selector. Although the faders dont offer 100mm throw, they are well laid out with adequate spacing between them. Viewing other mLAN channels, either internally in the 01X or inside a DAW/ sequencer, is facilitated by the Mixer/ Layer cluster of buttons based directly above the transport controls. The onboard EQ and dynamics of the 01X can be saved and ported to and from the hardware and software using Channel Module the software Channel Module plug-in. The presets within the 01X/ Channel Module provide great ballpark starting points for mixing all kinds of instruments within a pop sensibility; i.e., drums, bass, piano, guitars and vocals. The onboard EQ, effects and dynamics sound great and being able to see the 01Xs overall EQ, effects and aux routing at a glance via the Studio Manager software is a nice feature. The Studio Manager software also displays an accurate readout of what channels have dynamics inserted across them, as well as full readout and remote operation of the 01Xs moving faders. Its worth noting that you can take a snapshot of the 01X at any time using the Scene button. Up to 100 scenes can be programmed into the 01X, conveniently saving all its effects, EQ and dynamics settings. This kind of recall will interest small ensembles, venues or anyone recording similar situations all the time.
Software for Hardware
Because the hardware is so easy to navigate, for mine, the GUI layout of the studio manager software could have been a zoom-able and more refined readout with the ability to resize the window or display all 24 channels at once (currently 16). The Channel Module plug-in graphic also looks a bit clunky. But visual gripes aside, the Studio Manager and Channel Module software get the job done simply and efficiently, despite their slightly dated appearance. The Studio Manager plug-in is built on Yamahas Open Plug-in Technology, the same technology used in Sony Acid 4, which I have been a fan of. The Studio Manager is particularly useful for the fast setting-up of the 01Xs internal aux sends, A/D inputs per channel and phase setting. The global EQ, dynamics and effects settings, which can all be viewed at a glance, are also a handy aspect. I reckon most computer users will prefer doing their routing inside the Studio Manager rather than on the 01X itself.
if you could have endless mLAN channels, the 01X can only steer 28 of them at a time. One way to expand the routing would be to add an 01X or multiple 01Xs to control other channels in the mLAN network. As an example, think of four musicians sharing a house linked up via an 01X in each of their bedrooms. One musician would be able to use, say, a Motif rack thats actually linked to someone elses 01X in the mLAN network or be able to listen to a submix from another 01X or mLAN device and contribute to the composition. Being able to route the outputs of devices within the network allows a lot of freedom, and an extraordinary array of options. Who knows, maybe in five years or so jobs will be appearing for mLAN routing coordinators. just kidding! But you get the idea? Theres an enormous breadth of routing power available in an mLAN network.
Software for Software
The three real sweeteners in Yamahas 01X package are the aforementioned DAW-based software plug-ins. They appear on a separate installation CD-Rom and contain the usual serial No. registration affair. Once installed, these plug-ins appear in your applicable VST or Audio Units host plug-ins list. Two of the supplied plug-ins Pitch Fix and Vocal Rack are mono-only and designed primarily for vocals. Designed for use as an insert effect in your DAW, I used them on other sources such as cellos and guitars as well as on voices and had good results. I wouldnt say Pitch Fix is as elegant a solution as Antares Autotune, but the results are similar. A handy keyboard for the selection of the notes to be tuned is a good feature and the Formant Shifter is equally impressive. Vocal Rack is a lot like WaveArts Trackplug, utilising EQ and compression all in the one plug-in. Final Master plug-in is just that: something you stick on your final master. Designed as a master fader insert or to be used across existing stereo material, Final Master is great for maximising the level of a stereo mix. Essentially a three-band multiband compressor, it compares favourably to Logics multi-band compressor applied over various drum sub-mixes and final mixes. Im a bit unsure about the brushed aluminium and turquoise LED look these plug-ins sport, however they are powerful additions to anyones plug-in arsenal. In monetary terms, I would guess these plug-ins to retail for around $600, which certainly sweetens the 01X price tag.
Software Facilitated Hardware Routing
The mLAN graphic patchbay is the nerve centre for all mLAN connectivity. Based on a drag-and-drop-thepatch-cord principle, its as easy as dragging a patch cord from one link node to another on various devices in the mLAN pool. I imagine this window could get rather confusing to look at if you had a complex mLAN routing in operation. To this end I thought that maybe an alternative cascading device/menu list with to and from routing sub-menus might have been a better alternative to the current layout. The whole idea of the graphic patchbay brings it all back home that even
PC-Only Multitracker Software
If youre using the 01X in conjunction with an XPbased computer, Yamaha provides a basic software multitracker (the SQ01) and a WAV editing program named TWE. Both are limited in the spec dept, but if you dont have Sonar, Logic or one of the other major sequencers, the SQ01 will at least get you going in the DAW land of WAVs. The SQ01 doesnt come with
against the tide of 10 years-worth of P2P (peer-topeer) system supremacy. However, if the mLAN snowball gathers momentum, maybe there could be an avalanche of developers making mLAN controllers, converters and software utilities. I have dreams of a 24 in/out A/D D/A controller with moving faders and 24 inputs of mLAN available on faders via a Flip button amongst others
The Promised LAN
The 01X is one of this years standout products. Over the last two months I have enjoyed leaving a lot of mouse work behind, using instead the 01X, as a moving-fader control surface for Logic Audio and Sonar. It really excels in this role and I will be sad to see it go for that reason alone. When you add the fact that its a digital mixing desk/converter in one, and the potential hub of a whole new network called mLAN, it becomes indispensable to some and intriguing to others. The digital desk aspect of the 01X and its software/hardware hybrid is a new slant on the workstation versus computer DAW argument, with the 01Xs feet firmly planted in both camps. Its onboard digital mixing capabilities are first rate and would suit a small club with smaller outfits and DJs performing. Add a decent laptop or desktop computer and any 01X owner could also record the performances and mix down at their leisure. The onboard conversion and mic pres are more than up to this task and all other kinds of recording/mixing applications. Owners of Yamahas Motif range of synthesizers will get a kick out of the Motif rack editor which makes on-screen editing of parameters a cinch. This is potentially a major inducement for Motif owners to get an 01X. I have to admit the whole 01X package had me baffled when I first looked into it. It just had so many options/directions and applications to consider. But pretty soon I began to understand what the 01X could do and became slightly in awe of the possibilities. If I hadnt just spent 15 grand on my soundcard/converter configuration I would be very tempted by the 01Xs Brave New World. As it stands, I am seriously considering the 01X to be the hub of my second mobile recording rig. If you are thinking about boarding the good ship 01X and finding your mLAN sea legs for the first time; or you want to expand an existing setup, I would advise an mLAN inspection at a port near you.
01X's Studio Manager software.
quite the functionality you might be used to in other reputable multitracks the most notable absentee at the roll call was a mixer window and a dedicated transport. I must confess, I didnt get stuck into any multitrack work but I did successfully record and playback stereo files inside SQ01. It will be interesting to see how serious Yamaha is about the SQ01 multitrack software. It looks like it might have potential. Well see.
Interfacing with the Rest of the World
So, is all the puff in the mLAN rigging going to help make the 01X sail, I hear you ask? Well, I reckon owners of mLAN gear will already be well into their investigations of the 01X by now. Many have probably weighed anchor already. I can certainly see the attraction of an open plan interconnectivity, however, of major interest to us all will be which major hardware developers incorporate mLAN interfacing in their products, and how mLAN (via the only mLAN router currently available the 01X) is perceived and accepted by musicians. The 01Xs ability to fast-track mLAN audio and Midi to and from the computer is undoubtedly beneficial to musicians, but the ability to sync with gear of old is critical and to this end I feel the 01X suffers from its lack of dedicated BNC wordclock I/O and at least one set of Adat inputs. Simply put, if you are thinking about more than eight tracks of recording be prepared to buy some mLAN converters. Personally, Im waiting on the mLAN device that converts mLAN to two sets of eight-channel Adat leads. Thats the device to get me and my RME converters traversing the mLAN sea. I still have some concerns about the mLAN computer bussing always being the clock source, and I wonder if that may create a dangerous divide between users of mLAN-compatible gear and everyone else. It would be ironic if this were to happen, since that would defeat the whole purpose of what mLAN sets out to achieve interconnectivity. Credit must go to Yamaha for attempting to swim

The 01X Configuration Guide
A Very Brief Introduction Welcome to the world of learning! Like many of you, I have spent countless hours reading and re-reading the 01x and the Cubase SX owner's manuals, scouring the Internet, and perusing the various forums to try and glean further information on these excellent components. Maybe you have even spent a considerable amount of money on this or that book or video (like I have) only to find out that, in the final analysis, they are really not worth the money you paid for them. Sure the 01x DVD Experience may have helped many (probably only the "Pros"); it did nothing for me other than to show me how "stupid" I am! Ever feel like that? Well, I sincerely hope that this guide is not like that? I trust that it will be of benefit to you as it has been to me during the preparation of it. I am dedicated to the "step-by-step" (or procedural) approach to things, as I believe this will assist the user in comprehension. As a result, you should be able to understand how all this stuff works so that you will actually be able to do what you are being asked to do. And once you do, then devices like the 01x (and even Cubase SX) will be a whole lot more understandable (and, need I say, useable). As you go through this guide, ask yourself questions, like, Why does this happen (or does not happen)? As was just mentioned, this will aid in your comprehension of the 01x and of Cubase SX as well. Also, it must be understood, that due to the versatility and flexibility of the 01x (and indeed of Cubase SX as well), there can be many different approaches to the understanding of it (and believe me, there are)! This guide, as presented here, is just one of many such approaches. What this guide is What this guide is, is an introduction to the 01x, and more specifically, the Auto Connector, and how the Auto Connector relates to the 01x and its integration with Cubase SX. I will also cover the INTERNAL and REMOTE mode features of the 01x as well as the MONITOR A/B functions of the 01x. and what it is not This guide is not an absolute beginners guide to either the 01x or to Cubase SX. Therefore, you should know: 1. how to launch and exit from Cubase SX 2. how to load a blank project in Cubase SX 3. how to insert tracks within a project 4. how to properly configure the Device Setup within Cubase SX 5. how to access the VST Ins & Outs within Cubase SX 6. how to start the Auto Connector, and how to configure it, etc. 7. what a control surface is Note: If you are not familiar with any of the above, you need to read the appropriate documentation to learn how to do this. This information will be found in the Cubase SX/SL Operation Manual and the Cubase SX Quick Start Guide, as well as in the Yamaha Owners Manual and Installation Guide. Information about control surfaces can be discovered via the Internet through the use of any good search engine. Thank yous I would like to thank the following for their assistance in the preparation of this guide: Charmain Dennison and Phil Clendeninn of Yamaha

A Practical Suggestion As you go through this guide, try and think your way through the steps as presented in each of the procedures. It is very important that you comprehend each of the steps as you go through them so that you will be able to use the concepts you have learned in your own projects and setups. Comparisons Many times throughout this guide comparisons will be made as to the actual audio signal as it comes into the 01x on its way to Cubase SX and of the audio signal as it comes out of Cubase SX. It will be of help to make note of any audible changes in this audio signal between these two sources. This point should become clear as you progress through this guide. A Word About "Routing" Throughout this guide, you will very often come across the word "assign". You can easily substitute this word for the word "route". In this way you can sound (and talk) like a real "Pro"! Remember: Assign = route What is a bus and how is one used? First, What is a bus? Like a passenger bus, a bus is a device for moving something or several things from one place to another. So it is in audio routing. Second, How is one used? When you assign a signal to a bus, you are assigning (or routing) that signal to an output option. You can then connect that output (i.e. bus) to some other device. This device can be either an internal or an external device depending on how the mixer is designed. It is important to understand that where you connect the bus will be dependent on what you are doing at any particular time. To The Source In the 01x Owner's manual, page 14, it says: "A signal route that mixes the signals from multiple channels and send them to an output jack or internal effect input is called a 'bus.' Unlike channels, which handle only a single signal, a bus can combine multiple signals into one or two, and send them to a destination. (This comes from the common meaning of the word, a vehicle to carry many passengers simultaneously). So we will talk a lot about buses in this guide. Therefore I hope that the concept of buses and how they work will become a whole lot more understandable to you. Observe: Channels: handle only a single signal Buses: can combine multiple signals into one or two and send them to a destination Preliminary Information (List of things needed or used in this guide.) 1. Cubase SX 2 or 3 (SX 3.02 is being used for this guide) 2. An audio source of some kind (CD-Player or keyboard, etc.) input to channels 1 & 2 on the 01x Note: I hope that you will use some form of pre-recorded material as your audio source. This is so that you can focus on the concepts being taught and not on your playing of it, etc. 3. mLAN drivers version 1.5.3 or later (I am using 1.5.4!) 4. On the 01x All faders set to infinity (i.e. down of off) Set to default configuration (i.e. factory settings) Set to INTERNAL MODE MONITOR A/B set to off REMOTE mode set to CUBASE Wordclock set to 44.1kHz Note: The above 2 settings will need to saved (i.e. backed-up) in order for these settings to be available the next time you power-up the 01x. See page 86 in the Yamaha 01x Owners Manual for more details. 5. In Cubase SX

That you have configured Device Setup as follows: VST Inputs: Ports 1 to 6 set to Visible VST Outputs: Ports 1 to 6 and 17&18 set to Visible In the beginning. Begin by setting the 01x Auto Connector to the following: 1. PC -> 01x: 4 2. PC <- 01x: 2 3. MONITOR 17-18 OFF
Note: These are the minimum values that can be set in the Auto Connector. I personally would like to have the ability to send only 2 channels from the PC -> 01x. Also, the symbol PC <- 01x should really read 01x -> PC (this would make it a lot clearer and easier to understand).

Determines the number of mLAN audio transmission channels from the computer to the 01X.
Note: It might help you to mentally replace the word PC with your DAW software. In this situation PC = Cubase SX. So: 1. Cubase SX -> 01x: 4 2. Cubase SX <- 01x: 2 (or 01x -> Cubase SX: 2 Setting input and output levels (on the 01x) 1. Start your audio source 2. Raise the CH1 & CH2 faders to 0db 3. Raise the Stereo Master fader to 10 4. Adjust the MONITOR/PHONES knob to your listening preference Note: If you are using a stereo input source you can (and should) pan CH1 & CH2 hard left & hard right to hear the proper stereo image. A Word About Patching For my purposes, I used the demo songs on my RD-700 input to channels 1&2 on the 01x (but you are welcome to use whatever input source you prefer). However, I suggest using channels 1&2 as your
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 3
inputs on the 01x as these are the ones used throughout this guide. Also, as I had to use inputs 3&4 on the 01x (as inputs 1&2 are XLR connectors and my RD-700 uses connectors), I patched inputs 3&4 to 1&2 on the 01x. See Getting Started (page 61) and Input patch Reference (page 88) in the 01x Owners Manual to see how this done. Back to work At this point, you should be hearing the audio input and output from the INTERNAL mode of the 01x. In INTERNAL mode, you are using the 01x as if it were a stand-alone analog/digital mixer. This is not the same as using the 01x in REMOTE mode, as we shall see later on in this guide. In INTERNAL mode, when you raise the CH1 & CH2 faders, you are adjusting the input signal of your audio source coming into the 01x mixer. Then, when you raise the Master (STEREO) fader, you are adjusting the output signal coming from the 01x (along with the MONITOR/PHONES knob) as it travels on its way to your monitor speakers. Note: See page 17 in the 01x Owners Manual for a fuller explanation of this process. Now, while your audio source is playing, launch Cubase SX. Looking at the Transport Bar, what do you see? Depending on how Cubase SX is configured, you should see levels on the Audio Activity section of the Cubase SX Transport Bar (more specifically the Input Channels section). Note: If you do not see activity here, ensure that you have your Device Setup configured properly in Cubase SX. Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box. Click on the Inputs tab and remove any inputs listed here. Do the same for the Outputs tab. Then close the VST Connections dialog box. Now look again at the levels on the Audio Activity section of the Transport bar. What do you see? Nothing! So, what has just happened? Note: If the level meters appear to be "stuck", press F2 twice to remove and reload the Transport Bar. Observe: You have just disabled any audio coming from the 01x on its way to Cubase SX. Again, though you are still hearing audio (because of the INTERNAL mode of the 01x), the connection between the 01x and Cubase SX has been disconnected. Remember: In the Auto Connector, the setting PC <- 01x was set to 2. These are the 2 output channels (more specifically, the two mLAN output channels) coming from the 01x to the PC. Also, you should notice that this setting has had NO effect on the audio going in and out of the INTERNAL mode setting of the 01X. This should be obvious in that there has been no change in the actual audio signal you are hearing while making these changes within Cubase SX. IMPORTANT: Only Cubase SX has been affected here! Though this point may seem unimportant, it is still nonetheless important, so please make note of it. Back to work Press F4 again to display the VST Connections dialog box. Click on the Inputs tab and create a new Stereo Input Bus. Call it Stereo mLAN In 1/2. Now, assign Device Ports mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 to this bus. Note: These Device Ports should be assigned to this bus by default (if Device Setup has been configured properly). Also, these are the default names for the mLAN inputs. If you have renamed your input and output ports to meet your specific needs, then you need to take this into consideration. Back to work Looking again at the Audio Activity section of the Transport bar you should now see levels appearing. Note: There are no outputs assigned here at this time, just inputs so far. I mention this just for completeness. Now, assign Device Ports mLAN 03 & mLAN 04 to this input bus. What has happened to the input levels? They have stopped again. Why? There are only 2 outputs coming from the 01x to the PC. These outputs are numbered 1&2. In order for Device Ports 3&4 to be used we would need to configure 2 more mLAN channels in the Auto Connector. Before you proceed, stop your audio source.
A Word About Direct Out To assist you in understanding the IN's & OUT's of the 01x, a word about "Direct Out" might be in order here. To begin with, there is a point within the configuration of the 01x where you can send audio signals to a Direct Out. What is a Direct Out exactly? First, it is an mLAN channel. Second, a Direct Out is where an audio signal is sent to your DAW software (in this case, Cubase SX) to be recorded or processed. The Direct Out is then assigned (or connected) to a track in your DAW. The Direct Outs are referred to as mLAN 1 through mLAN 24 within your DAW software. This point is very important, so please remember it. Question: Are the Direct Outs processed or non-processed? That is, do they by-pass the internal architecture of the 01x or does the 01x process the signal on its way out of the 01x? Answer: The Direct Outs provide an unprocessed signal on its way to the DAW. Please note: Though you could adjust various parameters on the 01x (EQ, effects, etc) these adjustments would have no actual effect on the signal entering Cubase SX. Regardless of what you do with the 01x, the signal entering Cubase SX is a "dry, unprocessed" signal. Is it 24, or is it 16? So where do we get 24 mLAN channels from when you actually only see 16 mLAN channels? Well, on the 01x the first 8 channels are referred to as analog inputs (and are designated as CH1 to CH8). Next, we have 16 channels that are designated as mLAN1 to mLAN16. However, when you are referring to the Direct Outs that are sent to your DAW, these channels all travel via mLAN to the DAW and are referred to as mLAN1 through mLAN24 (our 8 analog channels PLUS the 16 mLAN channels). Your DAW therefore, sees ALL the outputs (as Direct Outs) as mLAN 1 through mLAN 24. The same would be true for the inputs coming from the DAW to the 01x. In this situation though, we have no analogue outputs going to the 01x; they are all mLAN channels. Make sure you understand this aspect before continuing. Remember: The Direct Outs that are sent (via mLAN) to your DAW are referred to as mLAN channels and are number mLAN1 through mLAN24 Setting input and output levels (on the 01x) - Continued. To prove a point here, exit Cubase SX (do not save anything if it asks you). Launch the Auto Connector and configure it as follows: 1. PC -> 01x: 4 2. PC <- 01x: 4 3. MONITOR 17-18 OFF
Remember: Click the Connect button to enable these settings. Also, connect or re-route (i.e patch) your audio source to CH3 & CH4 on the 01x.
Back to work Re-launch Cubase SX and press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box. Select the Inputs tab and assign Device Ports mLAN 03 & mLAN 04 to this bus. Start your audio source. Now what do you see? There are levels now on the Audio Activity section of the Cubase SX Transport Bar. Why? Because you just configured these outputs on the 01x (as PC <- 01x: 4)! Still not convinced? Set the Device Ports to any mLAN port other than ports 1 to 4. What happens? No levels! (This would be the same as using the Not Connected Device Port settings within Cubase SX.) Go back and reset the Device Ports back to mLAN 1 & mLAN 2. Press F4 to close the VST Connections dialog box. Exit from Cubase SX and stop your audio source. Summary What have you just discovered here? You have discovered that you can use the 01x as a stand-alone analog/digital mixer. (By this, it is meant that you can use the 01x as a mixer without having to connect it to a computer.) You have also discovered that in order to get input signals into the PC (from the 01x), you need to configure these channels in the Auto Connector. And Remember: These channels are mLAN channels coming from and returning to the 01x (from your DAW software.) Determining the number of channels The number of channels you would configure in the Auto Connector would be dependent on how many outputs you would need to send to the PC from the 01x. Note: Keep in mind that only an even number of channels can be sent to and from the 01x. For example, if you needed only 5 inputs, you would still be sending 6 channels from the 01x to the PC. This is because the Auto Connector only allows for an even number of channels to be sent (in multiples of 2) to and from the 01x. However, not to worry, you can still configure these channels to be either mono channels or stereo channels within Cubase SX. A word about the Auto Connector The Auto Connector setting here determines the number of channels going to (and from) the PC and the 01x. Very simply, you need to ensure that the numbers of input channels that you will be requiring (in Cubase SX) are equal to (or greater than) the number of channels going to the PC from the 01x. So, for example, if you have a band with 4 performers, you would require 4 channels coming from the 01x to the PC. The number of output channels would also be dependent on how you would be configuring Cubase SX. Therefore, the number of channels sent to Cubase SX does not have to equal the number of channels sent from Cubase SX. Output configuration Before we continue, reset the Auto Connector to 2 channels from PC <- 01x and re-route or patch the audio source back to channels 1&2. Then re-launch Cubase SX. Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box. Click on the Inputs tab and remove any inputs listed here. Do the same for the Outputs tab. Next, create a Stereo Input Bus and call it Stereo mLAN In 1/2. Assign mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 to this bus. Close the VST Connections dialog box. Starting your audio source, you should again see levels on the Transport Bar. Now, create a new empty project and create a new stereo audio track. Observe: Notice that the Monitor button (in Cubase SX) is enabled. If it is not, then enable it. At this point you should be seeing activity in the Output Channel section of the Transport Bar. But you are not! Why? Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box and select the Output tab. Observe: No outputs! (You deleted these earlier.) Create a Stereo Output Bus and call it Stereo mLAN Out 1/2. Assign mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 to this bus. Close the VST Connections dialog box. Now, assign the audio track you just created to this new output bus. Observe: Notice that when you first created the project, that the Output bus assignment initially said "No Bus". Why? When the project was first created there was no output bus available. With no output bus available at the time the project was created, the track will default to no bus. On the other hand however, if both input and output buses exist at the time the project was created, the project would
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 6
use those buses. Therefore, Cubase SX will "default" to using whatever input and output busses exist at the time the project was initially created. This is an important point to remember, so make note of it. You should now see levels on the Audio Activity section of the Transport Bar (and more specifically the Output Channels section). Why? Because you now have an output bus to send your audio signal to! It is very important that you understand what is taking place up to this point! Now, disable the Monitor button (in Cubase SX). What happens? If you are observant, you should have noticed that the output on the Output Channels section stopped. Even though you are not hearing any difference in the actual audio signal, there is some kind of activity going on within Cubase SX. Toggle the Monitor button (ON & OFF) and verify the effect that it has on the Output Channel of the Audio Activity section of the Transport Bar. What is your observation? Ask yourself this question: "Though I have created an output bus in Cubase SX, where is this bus going to?" Answer: It is going to mLAN out 1&2! However you are not actually hearing that output yet. To hear the actual output (going to the 01x via mLAN from Cubase SX) you need to do the following: First, make sure the Monitor button is enabled. Next, press the Bank UP button on the 01x. (This should take you to the first bank of mLAN channels: mL1-mL8.) Note: I would like to use the word reflect here as it just may make more sense. Up to now, the settings between the 01x and Cubase SX have not reflected each other (in that you have not heard any audible changes in the actual audio signal between these two devices.) Raise the mL1 & mL2 faders to 0db. What happens? You should hear the output now (i.e. the output from Cubase SX being sent to the input of the 01x). Or do you? Turn the Monitor button OFF. If you are observant, you will hear a slight change in the audio output when the Monitor button is toggled ON and OFF. Why is this? Well, you are hearing both the original input signal (to the 01x) and the output signal (sent to the 01x from Cubase SX) at same time (depending on whether the Monitor button is ON or OFF). Not convinced? Then try the following: With the Monitor button disabled, press the Bank DOWN button and lower the CH1 & CH2 faders. What happened? You have lost your audio signal and more specifically, the original audio input signal that is coming from your audio source into the 01x. Enabling the Monitor button allows you to hear the output (or input) again. Note: This is the original audio signal that was sent via mLAN to Cubase SX and is now being returned via mLAN to the 01x again. Analogue and Digital It may help to look at this scenario from the analogue and digital perspectives. The original audio signal would be the analogue signal and the mLAN signal would be the digital signal. Analogue uses analogue-type cables, etc, whereas digital uses digital cables. Therefore, the RD-700 (or any analogue source connected to the regular inputs on the 01x, would be the analogue inputs (as the name suggests.) The connections between the 01x and the DAW are our digital signals. Think of the analogue pathway and the digital pathway between the 01x and the DAW. The only exception to this scenario would be if you used the SP/DIF connections on the 01x (as these are considered digital connections.) So.
Monitor OFF - CH1&2 set to infinity: No audio Monitor ON - mL1&2 set to 0db: Audio OR Monitor OFF - CH1&2 set to 0db: Audio Monitor ON - mL1&2 set to infinity: No audio
Also, while you are toggling the Monitor button ON and OFF, notice the levels on the Audio Activity section of the Transport Bar (and more specifically the Output Channels section). These should toggle on and off as well (as you noticed earlier). Before continuing, stop your audio source. Observe: Think about all that is going here. With the Monitor button disabled, you do not hear any output as you have lowered the faders (on the 01x) that were controlling the input levels coming from your audio source into the 01x. With the Monitor button enabled, you hear the output from Cubase SX (via mLAN 1&2.)
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 7
If we were to map out the audio path at this point, you should have the following: Audio Source 01x Cubase
01x (via CH 1&2) Cubase (via mLAN In 1&2) 01x (via mLAN Out 1&2)
Note: Another possible way of looking at this is that, in actuality, you are monitoring the output signal as it leaves Cubase SX. More on this later. Remember: 1. The output of your audio source is connected to inputs 1&2 on the 01x. These are the analogue channels 1&2 on the 01x. So, channels 1&2 will control the input levels of these 2 channels (as we are using a stereo input device for our audio source). 2. These 2 input channels are routed to 2 mLAN output channels (namely, mL1 & mL2) on the 01x. 3. The 2 mLAN output channels are, in turn, connected to a stereo audio channel in Cubase SX (in this case, the Audio 01 channel). 4. This channel is then routed to the Cubase SX Output channel, which is bused out to 2 mLAN output ports (namely mL1 & mL2). 5. These 2 mLAN channels are sent to 2 mLAN input channels on the 01x (namely inputs mL1 and mL2). So. RD-700 CH1/CH2 mL1/mL2 Audio 01 Output mL1/mL2 OUT mL1/mL2 IN Monitor Speakers Remember: The purpose of the Monitor button is to enable you to Monitor the OUTPUT within Cubase SX. Again, more on this later. Back to work Now let us try something else. Start your audio source and disable the Monitor button (if it is not already disabled). Press the Bank UP button on the 01x and Lower the mL1 & mL2 faders. Raise the mL3 & mL4 faders to 0db. Anything happen? Not yet! Why? Because you have no outputs assigned to those mLAN Device Ports (i.e. mLAN 03 & mLAN 04). Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box and select the Outputs tab. Assign mLAN 03 & mLAN 04 to this bus. Close the VST Connections dialog box. Now, click on the Monitor button. What happens? You hear output again as well as seeing levels on the Output Channels section. Why? You have just assigned these buses to the mLAN outputs 3&4 going to the 01x. Note: Think of the Monitor button in Cubase SX as an ON/OFF switch for the output as it leaves Cubase SX. Remember though, that to be able to actually hear this output, you need to raise the corresponding mLAN faders on the 01x to hear it. Before continuing with the next section, stop you audio source. Maybe, just a bit confusing here. In Device Setup you configured the VST Inputs, with Ports 1 to 6 set to Visible and the VST Outputs, with Ports 1 to 6 and 17/18 set to Visible. It is very important that you see just how these in's and out's - actually go in and out of the 01x and the DAW software application you are using. At first, this might appear to be a bit confusing!
Summary So, what have you just discovered here? You have discovered that you can assign outputs from Cubase SX to the 01x allowing you to control the levels using the 01x faders (via mLAN 1&2). You have also found out how to assign different outputs (in Cubase SX) to the inputs on the 01x. Lastly, you have seen how to control the output from Cubase SX using the Output Level adjustment on the Transport Bar. Back to work Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box and select the Outputs tab. Re-assign mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 to this bus. Note: You should have lost your audio signal again here and more specifically the mLAN signal coming from Cubase SX. Stop your audio source. Close the VST Connections dialog box and disable the Monitor button. Lower the mL3 & mL4 faders on the 01x. Press the Bank DOWN button on the 01x and raise the CH1 & CH2 faders to 0db. Save the project as Project 1. Controlling the Levels in Cubase SX All of the things that you have done so far have had no effect on the actual signal entering Cubase SX. A question might be asked: "How can I control the input levels going into Cubase SX from the 01x?" Maybe another (or better) way to say this is, How can I configure Cubase SX so that the settings on the 01x are reflected in Cubase SX (or vice-versa)? To verify that the faders on the 01x have no effect on the input levels going into Cubase SX, perform the following: first, start your audio source. Now, raise and lower the CH1 & CH2 faders on the 01x while watching the Audio Activity Input Channel level meters. Did they move along with, or reflect the movement of the 01x faders? They do not. If the faders on the 01x did reflect the input going into Cubase SX, then you would see a change in the level meters. But you are not! Why? Really think about this one for a moment. So, before you continue, stop your audio source. Earlier I noted that the 01x could be used as a stand-alone analog/digital mixer. Well, this is how it is functioning at present. This is referred to as the INTERNAL mode of the 01x. In order for the 01x to control the levels within Cubase SX, it must be configured to "control" it. This is called "Remote Control". The Cubase SX Mixer Before we get to the Remote Control functions of the 01x, I would like to spend a moment or two on the Cubase SX Mixer. So, with Cubase SX launched and Project 1 open, press F3 to display the Mixer window. Adjust the Project Window, the Mixer and the Transport Bar so that all 3 items are nicely arranged (and visible). Save the project as Project 2. Disable the Monitor button (if it is not already disabled) and start your audio source. Notice the levels on the Input channel in the Mixer (the one that says Stereo mLAN In 1/2). Using the mouse, raise and lower the Input Channel fader. What happens? You should see the level meters correspond to the fader setting within Cubase SX. So, just what is happening here? The Input Channel fader is controlling the input level within Cubase SX. However, these changes are not being reflected on the 01x in that you are not hearing the actual changes in the audio signal. Stop your audio source. Please note: Changes are still going on within Cubase SX however, whether you are hearing them or not. Note: To really understand why you are not hearing these changes in the audio signal, you need to understand that it is because of the 01xs INTERNAL mode. This should become evident later. Also, it is worth noting that there is no link between the 01x and Cubase SX at this time! This link would be the mLAN link between the 01x and Cubase SX. The Input Bus In Cubase SX, the Input channel adjusts the input signal coming from the hardware source (our input source, in this case, the RD-700). Only Cubase SX has this Input channel (therefore, this feature is not available in Cubase SL).
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 10
To The Source For more information on the Input Bus as it pertains to Cubase SX, see pages 52 and 53, Setting Input Levels in the Cubase SX/SL Operation Manual. Note: I personally prefer to hide the Input channel initially. To do this, see page 2-23 in the Cubase SX/SL Operation Manual. Back to work Now, start your audio source and enable the Monitor button. What happens? You see levels on the Audio 01 channel meters and the Output level meters. Again, using the mouse, raise and lower the Output Channel fader (the one that says Stereo mLAN Out 1/2). You should see the level meters reflect the fader settings within Cubase SX. As with the Input Channel, you are not actually "hearing" the changes yet. To hear these changes within Cubase SX, you will need to do the following: On the 01x, lower the CH1 & CH2 faders. Press the Bank UP button and raise the mL1 & mL2 faders to 0db. You should hear output again. Now, raise and lower the Output channel fader (in Cubase SX). What happens? The output level also changes. Notice also that when you enabled the Monitor button, that levels were showing on the Audio 01 channel in the Mixer. This is the audio channel that is controlling the Input signal going to the Cubase SX Mixer. Adjusting this fader also affects the Output level meters as well (and indeed it should)! Make sure you understand all that is going on here. Before continuing, stop your audio source. If I were to "map out" the signal path between the 01x and Cubase SX, it might look something like this: INPUT SOURCE 01x IN (CH1 & CH2) 01x mL1 & mL2 (OUT) Cubase SX (Mixer) Cubase mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 (OUT) 01x mL1 & mL2 (IN) Stereo Master out (01x) Does this all make sense? I hope so? Now press the REMOTE button on the 01x. Looking to the left of the 01x display screen it should read: Pan Audi01 Observe: When you pressed the REMOTE button on the 01x, did you notice the CH2 fader on the 01x move? You should have. Why? As a control surface, the 01x mixer settings should reflect the Cubase SX Mixer settings. As there is only one channel being used in the Cubase SX Mixer, there will be only one fader used on the 01x. Though the 01x required 2 channels to handle the stereo inputs, Cubase SX required only 1 channel. On the 01x, each channel is a MONO channel, while in Cubase SX, the channels can be configured as either mono or stereo channels (and, need I say, even more types than these)! In this case here, Cubase SX has configured a single channel strip, as a stereo channel - so only 1 channel strip is required. Back to work Now, starting your audio source again, adjust the CH1 fader on the 01x. What happens? The fader now controls the fader within Cubase SX. Another way to say this is: The physical fader on the 01x is controlling the software fader within Cubase SX. However you say it, the 01x is now remote controlling Cubase SX (with the 01x operating as a control surface). Adjusting the Master (STEREO) fader on the 01x now controls the Output fader within Cubase SX. Watch the level meters in Cubase SX to verify this. Also notice that the CH1 fader affects both the input and output signal, where the Master fader only affects the output signal. Make sure you understand this section before proceeding. Stop your audio source and save the project as Project 3.
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 11
Note: We have the mL1 and ML2 faders raised so that we can hear the output of our source (as it makes its way through Cubase SX on its way to the 01x). These mLAN channels are the input channels sent from Cubase SX to the 01x. This point is very important to note here, especially if you were to stop her and return to the guide later on. You must remember that you have no input levels configured here - just outputs. If you want to hear the input source, you will need to adjust the CH1 & CH2 faders accordingly (actually, the mL1 & mL2 faders.) You need to make note of this. Recording Without Remote Control Press the INTERNAL button on the 01x. For now, make sure that the Audio 01 channel and the Output channels (in Cubase SX) are all set at 0db in the Cubase SX Mixer (CTRL-Clicking each fader is a quick way of doing this). Start your audio source and click the Record button on the Transport Bar. You should see input being recorded in the event display in the Project window. Now adjust the Audio 01 Channel fader (in Cubase SX). What happens? You should have heard the output change. However, the fader movement it has had no effect on the actual recorded signal. Why? Stop the recording and then stop your audio source. Note: When I first came across this "phenomenon" I was surprised! Why did the fader movement (within Cubase SX) not affect the recorded signal? I thought that it should have. If I had to take an "uneducated" guess, I would say that the folks at Steinberg wanted the recorded signal to be left unaltered (probably for further processing. This also fits the cardinal rule of only recording dry then processing that signal later on.) To The Source There is an information section in the Cubase SX/SL 3 Getting Started guide (pages 60 and 61) entitled Audio terminology that provides a possible answer why Steinberg prefers to leave the original recorded audio event left unaltered. I will not delve into this topic in this guide, so I will ask you to look this one up on your own. To verify that the fader (while recording) has had no effect on the recorded signal, play back the track. Though you were moving the fader during recording, it did not affect, nor was it reflected, in the recorded signal at all. Delete the event, start your audio source, and record the event again. This time use the Master output fader, adjusting the level with the fader. Did it affect the recorded signal? Not at all! (The same as it did with the Audio 01 channel Fader.) One last time! Stop recording, delete the event and record it again, this time using the Input fader. What happens? Adjusting the Input Fader does affect the recorded signal going into Cubase SX (as seen in the recorded event)! Stop recording and stop your audio source. Playback the event to verify the changes the Input 01 channel fader had on the recorded event. Stop playback. Notes: 1. You can only adjust the Input fader if it is not hidden (as I did recommend that it be hidden earlier on in this guide.) 2. This affect on the recorded signal is regardless of the VU-Meter Settings in Cubase SX. Notice though, that the meter Input setting affects the output but not the level meters (though, it does affect the Audio and Master levels). The Meter Post-Fader affects ALL level meters. Why? It has to do with Pre & Post fader settings, which I am not interested in here at this point. Personal note: As I mentioned earlier, I prefer to hide the input channel within Cubase SX. Maybe the input channel may come in handy when using only the Cubase SX Mixer. But if using a control surface (like the 01x), this input setting is (and should be) handled by the control surface. This is a purely personal matter, and you should note it accordingly. To The Source For a further explanation of the VU-Meter Settings (i.e. the Meter Input or Meter Post-Fader) see Page 111, Cubase 3 SX/SL Getting Started, points #2 and #3). Recording With Remote Control Let us now do some recording using the Remote Control features of the 01x. First, enable Remote Control mode on the 01x. Next, delete any recorded events you may have. Start your audio source and press the record button (this time, on the 01x). Adjust the CH1 and MASTER faders while you record the event.
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 12
Observe: Other than using the 01x faders and transport buttons to control Cubase SX, all should be as before. Note: There is no remote control setting for the Input channel in Cubase SX. (Maybe another good reason to hide this channel!) Stop recording, stop your audio source and playback the event. What is your observation? It should be identical to recording without remote control. As before, the movement of the faders on the 01x have had no effect on the actual recorded signal within Cubase SX. However, then 01x is now working as a true control surface, controlling the fader movements (and much more) within Cubase SX. However, because the 01x is controlling the fader movements within Cubase SX, adjusting the CH1 fader on the 01x does affect the output of the signal (as it would in Cubase SX). Playback the recorded track and raise and lower the CH1 fader and notice the effect it has on the Audio 01 and the Output level meters. However, looking at the recorded event in the Event Window, you will notice that there are no changes in the actual recorded event. Again, it is important that you understand what is happening here before continuing. Stop playback and save the project as Project 4. Adding more channels Thus far you have recorded events using only channels 1&2 on the 01x. What would you do if you needed to add another Stereo track and thus more channels? How would you go about doing this? Note: You have done this before, so it should not be too difficult. Try to map this out in your own head before looking at the following procedure. The Procedure You need to exit Cubase SX and reconfigure the Auto Connector to enable 4 channels from the PC <01x. It might help you to see that in the default configuration of the 01x, there is a 1-to-1 relationship between the input channels on the 01x and the mLAN output channels going into Cubase SX. Therefore, by adding another 2 channels in the Auto Connector, you are, in actuality, adding channels 3&4 (or mLAN 3&4) going into Cubase SX. Test this for yourself by configuring the Auto Connector, then setting the input to mLAN 3&4, then recording on those buses. You will do this next. What might be helpful here is a step-by-step procedure for adding more buses when they are required. So here it is: 1. 2. 3. 4. Reconfigure the Auto Connector to be equal to or greater than the number of channels required. Create an input and an output bus in Cubase SX to match the inputs and outputs. Add an audio track to either monitor or record any events you need to monitor or record. Set the audio track to the correct buses.
Back to work So, let us have a bit of fun with this setup. Launch Cubase SX and create a new blank project. Open the Mixer and adjust the windows as necessary. Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box. Click on the Inputs tab and remove any inputs listed here. Do the same for the Outputs tab. Select the Inputs tab and create 2 new stereo buses. Call them Stereo mLAN In 1/2 and Stereo mLAN In 3/4 respectively. Do the same for the Outputs tab (using Out instead of In). Assign mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 to the 1&2 input and output buses and mLAN 03 and mLAN 04 to the 3&4 input and output buses. Close the VST Connections dialog box. Press the INTERNAL button on the 01x and raise the mL1 to mL4 faders to 0db. Finally, press the REMOTE button again. Here are the input and output port assignments: Inputs Stereo mLAN In 1/2 Stereo mLAN In 3/4 Outputs Stereo mLAN Out 1/2 Stereo mLAN Out 3/4 Ports mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 mLAN 03 & mLAN 04 Ports mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 mLAN 03 & mLAN 04
Note: Make sure you route your audio source to the correct channels before recording. Create 2 new audio tracks, the first track routed to input 1&2; the second track routed to input 3&4. Leave the outputs routed to Stereo mLAN 1&2 for now. Start your audio source and record an event
The 01x Configuration Guide - Copyright 2005 Customer First Computing Page 13
(approximately 30 seconds worth) on the first audio track. Stop recording. Lower the CH1 fader on the 01x. Remember: You are in REMOTE mode hereso use the 01x to do this! Next, record an event on the second audio track (again, approximately 30 seconds worth). Stop recording and stop your audio source. Now, raise the CH1 fader on the 01x and playback the events. You are listening to the recorded events of audio tracks 1 and 2. Using the channel faders on the 01x, you can raise and lower the volume levels on each of the recorded tracks allowing you to listen to each of the tracks separately or together. (Much like you would in a real recording session!) Before continuing, stop playback. Summary We have covered a lot of ground here in this section and it is important that you absorb what you are learning here so that you are able to map out ahead of time what settings you will be require to perform a particular task using the 01x and Cubase SX. In the next section, we are going to have a look at an interesting component of the 01x, the MONITOR A/B function. So before we begin, press the INTERNAL button on the 01x and save the project as Project 5. Exit Cubase SX and lower the channel faders mL1 to mL4 on the 01x. Finally, press the Bank DOWN button. The MONITOR A/B function Begin by setting the 01x Auto Connector to the following: 1. PC -> 01x: 4 2. PC <- 01x: 2 3. MONITOR 17-18 OFF
Back to work Launch Cubase SX. Press F4 to display the VST Connections dialog box. Click on the Inputs tab and remove any inputs listed here. Do the same for the Outputs tab. Select the Inputs tab and create a Stereo Input Bus called Stereo mLAN In 1/2. Assign mLAN 01 & mLAN 02 to this bus. Click on the Outputs tab and create 2 Stereo Output Buses: the first one called Stereo mLAN Out 1/2 and the second one called Monitor Out. Assign the first Stereo output bus to mLAN 1&2 and the second output bus to mLAN OUT 17+18. Close the VST Connections dialog box.
Here is where the MONITOR A/B function comes into play. But first, a bit of ground work: MONITOR A/B OFF: MONITOR A/B ON: You will hear the output from the 01x. In this way, you can use/control the output with the 01x faders (1/2 & Master outs) to control the outputs. Call this a "processed signal". You hear the output directly from the DAW (through the 01x Monitor outs). Only the MONITOR/PHONES knob works here.
Note: This would be an unprocessed output (no processing is taking place within the 01x, other than controlling the output volume with the MONITOR/PHONES knob). Back to work Create a new empty project and then create a new stereo audio track. The output should already be assigned to the Stereo mLAN Out 1/2 bus. Make sure that the MONITOR A/B button is off (i.e. it is not lit). Raise the CH1 & CH2 faders to 0db and start your audio source. Input and output is seen on the Audio Activity section of the Transport Bar. Now, lower the CH1 & CH2 faders. Now, assign the output to the Monitor Out bus. No change is heard. Now press the MONITOR A/B button (so it is lit.) Still no output is heard from the Monitor out bus. Also, there are no output levels showing on the Audio Activity section. Why? The Auto Connector setting is set to "Off" for Channels 17/18 (our MONITOR Out.) Thus, there is no monitoring of the 01x output.
Note: In the 01x default configuration, mLAN channels 17/18 are always output to MONITOR OUT regardless of how the Auto Connector is configured. However, on page 25 of the 01x Owner's Manual, it states that if the sample rate is set to 96kHz, then the MONITOR OUT is assigned to channels 9/10 respectively. Back to work Stop your audio source and save the project as Project 6. Make sure that the MONITOR A/B button is off (i.e. it is not lit). Close Cubase SX and reset the Auto Connector for MONITOR 17-18 to 2 CH (i.e. ON).
Launch Cubase SX, open Project 6 and start your audio source. Enable the Cubase SX Monitor button. Now enable the 01x MONITOR A/B button. What has happened? With your audio source playing, you hear output from the Monitor outs! Also, when you now move the faders on the 01x, the faders on the 01x no longer function (in that no change in the audio is heard). You are getting a straight-through (or direct-out) signal from the 01x. On the 01x, press the BANK UP button and raise the mL1 & mL2 faders to 0db. With this configuration, you can cycle between the Stereo Outs and Monitors outs via the MONITOR A/B button (as long as you switch between the different outs in Cubase SX and MONITOR A/B settings on the 01x). Stop your audio source and close the current project. (Do not save the project if it asks you.) For example: MONITOR A/B OFF | Stereo mLAN Out selected | mL1 & mL2 raised = Output MONITOR A/B ON = No Output MONITOR A/B ON | Monitor Out selected | mL1 & mL2 raised or lowered (does not matter) = Output MONITOR A/B OFF = No Output And now for some fun. Here is something very interesting to try! Following this procedure will hopefully serve a two-fold purpose: 1. to clarify your understanding of the MONITOR A/B function and, 2. to show you the versatility of this function Back to work First, disable the MONITOR A/B button. Create a new empty project and create 2 new audio tracks. Select the first audio track and make sure that it is assigned to Stereo mLAN In 1/2 and to Stereo mLAN Out 1/2. Select the second audio track and make sure that it is assigned to Stereo mLAN In 1/2 and to Monitor Out. Note: To clearly understand how this function works, I recommend recording two completely different

events on each track. Make each event at least 1-2 minutes in duration. The reason for this will be apparent, as you shall soon see. Now, start your 1st audio source and record the first event on Track 1. Stop the recording. Enable the MONITOR A/B button, select the second audio track, start your 2nd audio source and record the second event on it. Stop the recording and your audio source. Now, you can use the MONITOR A/B button as a toggle between the 2 different recordings you just made. Playback the events and you should hear the event from track 1 with the MONITOR A/B OFF and you should hear the event from track 2 with the MONITOR A/B ON! Repeat the above process until you completely see and understand what is taking place here! Stop playback and save the project as Project 7. Remember: With MONITOR A/B OFF, you are hearing the output from (or within) the 01x and can control the output with the 01x faders, etc. With MONITOR A/B ON, you are hearing the direct output from the DAW (through the 01x Monitor outs). To The Source 1. Signal flow between the 01x and the DAW on the computer (page 25, The 01x Owners Manual) You can monitor the output directly (monitor cascade) through the connected speaker system/headphones (according to the [MONITOR A/B] setting), if the stereo master output of the DAW is set to the last two available channels (the last two numbered channels specified with mLAN Auto Connector; refer to the separate Installation Guide). 2. MONITOR A/B (page 71, The 01x Owners Manual) Enable Monitor B. (Press the [MONITOR A/B] button so that the lamp is off.) This enables monitoring of the individual mLAN outputs from the DAW/computer. It also enables you to independently mix and process the individual DAW audio tracks from the 01X. Keep in mind that this monitor setting can be changed (page 96). The instructions here apply when the default setting is used. A 50/50 Split! The 01x forums (on 01Xray.com) recommend a setting of 63/63 for the MONITOR A/B function. At this point in my learning, I would prefer to leave it at the default setting. As with all learning, if I come across a practical and understandable reason for changing this default setting, I will make it available in this guide (as an updated version of it). Closing Comments What started out as just 2 pages has now grown to 17! I just had to make a decision at some point to complete this guide! As gleaning and learning progresses, I will provide either an Appendix to this guide or a complete revision of it. I sincerely hope that this guide has been of benefit to you and that it has assisted you in "making some sense" out of these great tools. Any comments or suggestions regarding this guide can be directed to me at: dell@CustomerFirstComputing.com Thank you, and happy recording & mixing! Dell Krauchi June 22, 2005
