Smashing it, especially since it was free from my telecommunications company. iPhone competition, 5.0MP camera, video recorder. Upgradeable storage. I had thought of buying this phone ever since it was announced in June of 2009 and finally got around to getting it and I am glad.

I love this phone! This the best phone ever! It does anything and everything. I think of it as the new and improved i phone. First of all, let me start by saying that this was the best Christmas gift that I could have gotten.When you purchase this phone.

Uniquely frustrating to set up This phone seems to combine a lot of promise with above average frustration. Hardware-wise, it is feature-packed. Quality issues with HTC Android is excellent. However the touch screen on the HTC Hero broke in 6 months of purchase. Also had a HTC Touch.

Simply put, I have never owned a lower quality, more frustrating electronic device ever. This thing has the ability to make a calm.

I received this case in the mail today. When I opened the package. had what I wanted, price was right, shipping was speedy and effortless. A bit looser than I was expecting, which keeps this from being a 5 star review. Still a great cover for this phone.
Craig Connell 5:17pm on Tuesday, May 11th, 2010 
I was extremely excited when I first received this phone. It was really easy to use and there was lots of great apps for the phone, often times free. The HTC Hero is a great phone. I have loved this phone since the day I got it.

Its been about a month since I dumped the Palm Pre and got with the Hero from HTC (how cliche, right?). So, after over a year of living and loving my Blackberry Curve I was itching for a new phone. A part of me lusted for an iPhone.

Which Version of Software should I use?
Yamaha always recommends the latest version of console rmware and the latest version of Studio Manager and PM5DV2 Editor. This combination is compatible for on-line connection and synchronization, will have the latest features and least known bug problems. However, we understand that in the real world there are older versions of consoles in circulation and that some engineers may have saved data in older versions of the SM and Editor.
How can I deal with older versions?
Yamaha constantly develops the PM5D mixing system, sometimes new versions are released that include new features and sometimes versions simply tweak the existing system to improve performance and bug x. When new console versions are released, new Studio Manager and Editor versions are often required to keep compatibility. All les saved in mixers are.PM5 type les and these will open in all future mixer versions, however it is not possible to guarantee future les will still be compatible with older mixers. For this reason Yamaha strongly recommends the use of current mixer rmware in all consoles. If you own the mixer, keep it up to date or visiting engineers may not be able to open their les. If you are a touring freelance engineer carry latest rmware and PCMCIA or CF card for upgrading. Console rmware is provided free of charge on Files saved in Studio Manager can have other formats (see page 15/16 of this guide). If a le was saved as a.YSM or.YSE le in V1 of Studio Manager it will not open in V2. This table is an example from Dec 2008; get the latest from

PM5D rider specications;

When specifying a PM5D console, we suggest you make it clear which model you prefer; PM5D (Manual Head Amp) or PM5D-RH (Recallable Head Amp) and if you need DSP5D and DCU5D for extra channels. Also specify you need the latest console rmware, any MY cards, spare PSU, LA1L desk lamps and mains power for your laptop to run Studio Manager. Always provide your own PCMCIA card for data back up and loading and remember your USB cable for Studio Manager connection! PM5DV2 Editor files can be loaded by either console hardware version, but the Editor software version must be compatible with the console rmware version. The latest versions are always available from together with a compatibility list. But as a rule of thumb the latest console version will always accept same release and older version.PM5 les. Problems may only arise when a newer version of Editor is used to create a le for a console running on old rmware. Yamaha always recommends that you use latest versions of console rmware to avoid this potential problem, but if this is impossible create older.PM5 les by using PM5D Editor V1. If you intend to go online then you will need concurrent versions. If necessary you can carry current console rmware with you on a suitable PCMCIA card and be prepared to upgrade the console.
Entering names and doing the patch; the planning stage.
When preparing a show le with the PM5DV2 Editor it is important to remember the layout of the actual console surface and the limitations of using paired/stereo channels. Some important points to remember; 1) Mono channels can be paired to make stereo but only adjacent odd / even channels. 2) There are 24 channels in each mono layer and stereo channels are in two layers of 4 so avoid putting groups of related channels across the layers. (Just like splitting related channels across a center-master analog console.) THE EXAMPLES have less than 64 channel requirement and many are stereo so they can be accommodated on a single PM5D. The most obvious candidates for the stereo channels are the effects returns, CD and ambience mics. There needs to be one more stereo channel; this could be a stereo keyboard or stereo sampler line; but in this example the drum overhead mics were chosen. The revised list here shows this in the First Attempt column.

At this stage it is noted that the stereo sampler lines are in even + odd pairs so they cannot be linked into pairs. By making the decision to move a single channel the pairing can be made; this is labeled second attempt.
With THE EXAMPLES, the choice is made to keep the Simon vocal as the last channel in a layer; making it quick to nd.


Entering names and doing the patch;
In the Editor, channel names can be entered on either the patch window or the main INPUT CH windows. Rapid naming is easiest in the INPUT CH windows as the Tab key can be used to move to the next name. Double click on the name to highlight it then type in your name. Of course you are restricted to using four characters for names, but dont forget useful keys such as the circumex key^ and v for up and down and the left/right arrow keys; <>, use the Tab key to move to the next name.

Multicore PM5D Ch Ch

Altering the patch;
One of PM5Ds great strengths has always been that it has a standard default patch and that for simple shows no patching is needed. However, the examples is a long and complex input list with many stereo channels so some patching is useful. The patch could be achieved by re-writing the channel list or analog style by moving the XLR connectors in the back of the console. But to avoid physical patching like this confusing any other engineers using the console and to keep in line with the FOH and any other recording or broadcast consoles it is better to use the internal soft patch. The blue blobs show the connection between the desk channels (down the left) and the input sockets (across the top). The default patch is 1 to 1.

To change the patch;

Simply click on the blue blobs to add or remove connections. Confirmation pop-ups can be disabled in WINDOWS>UTILITY > PREFERENCES. An input socket can be patched to several channels (Y-Split) but multiple inputs cannot be fed to one channel. (Thats what you need a mixer for!) Use the patch to ensure your channels are in convenient places; ie stereo channels are in odd-even positions and channels are in related groups on different layers.
To pair mono input channels as stereo;
On the console worksurface we can press and hold two [SEL] buttons to make a pair, but in the Editor we must use the Selected Channel window. Click on the heart icon to make a paired (stereo) channel. All parameters except pan and HA are linked. To pair or Gang the HA use the [Gang] button beside the HA control knob. HA can be ganged with an offset if required.

Applying +48V to inputs.

On the regular PM5D model the +48V switch is located above the analog gain pots but on the PM5D-RH model the +48V is software controlled and so can be set in the Editor. There is a +48V switch in the selected channel or on the INPUT CH window for each of the 24 channels.

Output patching.

The main outputs (StereoA,B, CUE, MONITOR, MATRIX 1-8, ) have dedicated output XLRs on the back, but they are also patchable to the MY slots or even the block of 24 Mix Output sockets. The 24 Mix outputs are patched to the 24 Mix out sockets by default, but they can also be patched to MY slots if you need outputs in a digital or analog format. We will look at FX patching separately.

Planning your outputs;

Now is a good time to store your scene and save your setup work.

Store a scene

After completing the naming and the patch it is a good time to make a rst save of your setup. We will go on to Save the data as a console le on a memory card, but rst we should Store the setup we have done so far as a scene within that le. Remember Yamaha uses the term Store for creating scene memories and Save for creating whole console and other setup memories. Open the SCENE window and select a scene location, then press [STORE]. The Store process does not prompt you to add a name, but you can do this by double clicking on the [Initial data] name area. If you dont store your setup as a user scene with a number it can be still be saved to a card and it will be loaded as the current scene. However, it cant be loaded as an individual scene into another session le if it hasnt been stored and remember if you load your data as the current scene it is vulnerable to being changed by accident and there is no scene to return to, so it is very advisable to store as a scene.

Save a session

The exact way of saving depends on whether you use a Windows or Mac computer, but the routine should be familiar. Go to File>Save. The rst time you save a dialogue box will ask you to name the le and choose where to save it. Choose a name like The Examples show and save in a folder on your system. There are two formats that the data can be saved in; a.PM5 le or a.YSE le (Yamaha Studio Editor).PM5D format.PM5 les can be opened by PM5D consoles and the PM5DV2 Edtior,.YSE les can only be opened by the editor. If you are setting up the most simple system of one PM5D console it makes sense to always save as.PM5 le using the Editor File>Save menu.YSE format The other formats offer some advantages. One small convenience is that the.YSE les open with the same window layout as they were stored with, so they can be faster to get going with. Also the.YSE le format is necessary as a component of a.YSM (Yamaha Studio Manager) le.
Editor: File> Save As>.PM5
.YSM Format If you have a PM5D and DSP5D or other multiple unit system it may make managing data easier to save as a.YSM le as this will save both consoles in one memory. However, remember that this data must be translated into two.PM5 les if it is to be card loaded. If a.YSM le is opened in Studio Manager connected on-line to the DSP5D and PM5D it can be synchronised to the consoles simultaneously and more rapidly than card loading.YSM les also remember the window layout so they are convenient for editing. A.YSM le can also be opened through links with a Steinberg Cubase session. These are the advantages of.YSM les.
Manager; File >SaveAs>. YSM

To save as a.YSM use the File>Save menus from the Studio Manager window containing the Editor icons.
Internal effects engines.
PM5D has eight internal effects engines; each works like a stereo in/out SPX 2000 type multi-effects unit. All the effect programs and parameters can be pre-selected using the Editor and saved into a console le.
Patching internal effects;
The In and Out of the effects engine can be patched from the Input and Output Patch Editor windows, but it is easier to see the effects patch from the Effect Editor window itself. Effects can be patched as send and return type (Mix out>Effect>Channel in) or inserted. The inserted option is useful for the Add-On compressors, but The Examples engineer inserts a reverb on the saxophone channel; this saves a valuable mix send, and the balance of sax to effect is done with the Wet/Dry Mix Balance control. There are two Effect Editor windows; the rst Effect Editor can be used to alter all parameters and access the library of Effects presets. The second window Effect Editor [Locked] can be used to change parameters but not the main library preset. You can access all eight engines from each window. Click on [Library] in the Effect editor window to change the effect from the default Large Hall reverb.

The effects in library positions 46 to 54 come from a special series of Add-on effects and they have special control GUI pages available in the Editor. These GUI are not available on the console screen but the effects obviously do run in the console, just with a simpler GUI. The Rev-X GUI is especially useful in helping to understand the parameters of reverb.

The Matrix.

The PM5D matrix has 8 outputs and is fed by the 24 mix buses and the two Stereo Master buses. You can pair matrixes just like mixes. The Matrix window shows the master output level faders and the bars show the levels of the 24 Mix buses and two Stereo Meters feeding into that Matrix channel. You can drag the bars across from this window but its tricky without a very large screen. For more accurate setting of levels use the Selected Channel window.
THE EXAMPLES use the matrix for their spare in-ear monitor systems;
If there is a failure of a band members IEM system then their mix can be sent to the spare; 1) Turn on MATRIX 1 and 2 and pair them by pressing the heart symbol in the SEL channel window. 2) Turn [ON] and up the matrix send to nominal by clicking and dragging round the knob image, 3) If a spare IEM pack is connected to the matrix output it can now be used for any IEM user who's own system fails. Quickly double press the SEL key of the mix with the failed pack and turn up the mix to matrix with the matrix encoder (or use Studio Manager if it is on-line.), the mix will now be available in the spare pack.

Graphic equalizers, GEQ.

PM5D has 12 dedicated internal graphic equalizers and a further 8 that can be added by utilising the FX units. These are 31 band, 1/3 octave GEQ with a choice of cut / boost depths and a spectrum analysis of what is passing through them. Flex-15 type GEQs are not available on PM5D. The GEQs are insertable on any input or output channel. Patching and setup of the GEQs can be done in Studio Manager. To operate or patch a GEQ, open the GEQ Editor window. There are two views available, both can contain any of the GEQs. To patch the GEQ click on [NONE] and select a channel to insert the device into. When a GEQ is inserted the channel insert point is automatically switched on. But note the GEQ is not on (in bypass).

User Dened Keys.

There are 25 user dened keys on the PM5D panel; 24 in a block and one above the DCA fader section. There are four banks of keys (ABCD) available. The keys are all programmable to a variety of user chosen tasks; the most common are Bookmarks or short-cuts to screens, Next or Last Scene and "tap tempo" for delay type effects sends. The "Examples" engineer uses "Layer Snapshot" User Keys for each of his main artists to access their monitor mixes really rapidly. This programming can be done in the PM5DV2 Editor. The keys can be programmed in the Editor but they cannot be operated from it, even when on-line.
To begin programming the UDKs open the User Dened Keys Setup window. Its accessed through Utilities in the Windows drop-down list.
Press a UDK image to open the Parameter window and choose a UDK function just as you would on the PM5D panel. The UDKs in PM5D Editor Control can be used to call up screens on the editor when it is connected to the PM5D on-line. They are like bookmarks for the on-line editor. When you have programmed your UDKs make a note of your choices on paper because you will need to label the PM5D panel with tape and pen when you load your le. There is no electronic naming for the UDK section.

Assignable / DCA faders.

The eight assignable faders are multi functioning; they are either DCA masters or assignable to any user dened fader function. There are 6 user assigned banks and the dedicated DCA bank. Programming of the assignable faders can be done in the Editor. Click on one of the channels in one of the letter banks and the menu of all channels will open. The menu is very large because it is possible to select channels from a PM5D with two DSP5Ds attached system, but for a simple PM5D only setup, use the channels without #key numbers. Use the [STAY] choice to x the fader as it was last assigned or [----] to disable the fader.

PM5D data loading from PCMCIA card. (Basic Load All Data);
Access the LOAD screen from DISPLAY ACCESS>UTILITY>>LOAD. Before loading data into a PM5D be sure that the data within the console is backed up or no longer required. WARNING!! LOADING DATA IN THIS WAY OVERWRITES ALL EXISTING CONSOLE DATA.* The load page will show a list populated with all the things saved to the memory card, even non-PM5D related things. Scroll until you nd your.PM5 le click on [LOAD] and any conrm dialogue boxes. Your data will be loaded into the console and any data within the console is lost. *(Output data can be retained if Output Isolation feature is used).

In addition to the LOAD;

The console will be setup just as you dictated in Studio Manager. Only the rotary pots of the monitor section, the HA section on a regular PM5D and THE +48V MASTER SWITCH ON THE BACK OF PM5D-RH are not necessarily the same. You might want to add some labeling tape to the User Dened Key area and to the mix masters at this stage.
Now you can do your rst soundcheck and show. Store scenes as you go along. If you are unsure about when to store, just do it often; you can always delete scenes later. Part 2 of the guide gives further information on saving and loading with PCMCIA cards and also how to edit scenes and manage recall options.
Going on-line for the rst time; Studio Manager, PM5DV2 Editor and PM5D.
If you have already been using Studio Manager and PM5D Editor off line then all you need to go on line is to add a USB connection cable and the USB-MIDI driver. Current drivers for PC and Mac can be obtained from You can check to see if the USB driver is installed already by looking in the Control Panel of your PC or System Preferences on your Mac. There is no need to click on the driver, it is activated by connecting the PM5D. If you click on it, it will simply open a dialogue box saying no mixer is connected. For DSP5D you need DME-N network Driver installed. The default IP address for DSP5D is
After downloading the driver follow the instructions to unzip the driver and install. With a PC connect the PM5D and a Found New Hardware wizard will pop up and help you install the driver just in the same way if you connected a new USB printer or other ofce peripheral. With Mac just double click the icon and follow the loading instructions. Full instructions for both OS are available from the download site. With Windows XP the driver is associated with a particular USB port, this requires the driver to be re-installed if a different port is used, and so it is recommended to always connect with the same USB port, but Vista and Mac computers dont have this limitation.

PM5D Mixer settings

On the mixer surface you need to choose the port that the mixer will expect Studio Manager signals to control it from. Press MIDI/REMOTE key in display access section and press until MIDI Setup tab is available. In the bottom right corner of the screen see the PM5DV2 EDITOR box. Select USB and leave the other boxes to show 1-1.
Now you are ready to go on-line with PM5D. If Studio Manager is already open, save your work, close it down and reopen it. Studio Manager only looks for the console when it opens so if you connect your cable after the programme is open it will not go on-line. Similarly if you are on-line and you disconnect and re-connect the cable on-line status will not be restored.
Setting up MIDI ports the rst time you go on-line.
There are several stages to set up communication, but at each stage if you set default you will not have to set these again next time you connect. Open Studio Manager from the PC Start Menu or Mac Task bar. Do not open the editor just yet. When you open Studio Manager the Editor Icon screen will show. Instead of double clicking the icon to enter the editor, click FILE>>>SETUP on a PC or SM2>>>Preferences on a Mac. Choose the MIDI Settings tab. If the MIDI driver is installed correctly there should be a choice of 8 ports, multiple ports allow for more complex setups. Choose port 0-1 for both Input and Output ports. Check that the Set default option is checked and click OK. DSP5D has only one port, labelled either Unit 1 or something you named it in the DME-N network driver.
Now you can double click to open the Editor window. The next step is to assign the Editor to those MIDI ports. Click FILE>>SYSTEM SETUP and choose the ports from the drop down boxes. Remember to check Set Default and conrm with OK.
So it should be understood that there are two stages in assigning the MIDIports. Firstly all the ports are assigned in Studio Manager and secondly each Editor being used is assigned to one of those chosen ports. It seems complicated if you only have one mixer, but it is necessary for larger setups.
Now your computer should be on-line with the PM5D. There is no obvious indication of this on the Editor screen. To check you are on-line it is simplest to drag a screen fader and see if the PM5D fader moves! But if someone is using the desk you can check by opening the Sync window. Click on Windows and Sync or use the short-cut Ctrl+1. At this stage it is important to understand the connection states that can exist in the system. On-line, off-line, and synchronized.
On-Line, Off-line and Synchronized.
When you are connected on-line it means that any controller used on the PM5D or on the PC will take hold of the parameter and set it to the chosen value. If you connected Studio Manager with a new setup to a PM5D that was initialized then the two will also be synchronized in the sense that all the values shown on the PM5D will match those shown on the PC. However if you connected to a PM5D that was being used then the PC and the PM5D would not show the same parameters; they are on-line but unsychronized. To synchronize you can click the RE-SYNC button in the SYNC window, or go to Synchronization at the top of the window and Re-Synchronize. Either route will bring the Synchronize window to the screen. This window offers a choice of direction for the synchronization. It is hard to exaggerate just how IMPORTANT this is! If you synchronize from PC to Console then all the settings of the console are adjusted to become the same as those in the PC and the console settings are lost.

What makes up a Console or Session File?
We saw in Part 2 of the guide that the session is made up of a whole group of libraries. Using PM5DV2 Editor we can extract these libraies from a session and load them into the console individually. To make the system even more exible we can take individual memories out of the libraries (like a single scene) and load it into the console, and just in case that position in the console memory is being used, we can change the scene number as we load it. Here is a reminder of the libraries;

Input Channel library

Scenes library (500 user memories)
HA gain library (199 user memories) Input patch library (99 user memories)
Output Channel library Current Scene Input EQ library User dened key settings (4 banks) DCA fader mode. 6 settings AtoF MIDI congurations General preferences and setup settings (inc Recall Safes) Output patch library (99 user memories)

Output EQ library

Gate settings Comp library Effects library

Graphic EQ library

A memory of any Event list.

Console or Session le

The blue boxes include all the items stored when the console [Store] key is used to store a scene. They can be linked for store and recall. Scenes can be saved individually.
The green boxes contain a mix of read only and user stored settings, the user contents are stored when they are entered.
The yellow box contents are stored as they are created and there is only one version stored per Console or Session le.
The red box is the whole session made up of the libraries.

Library Window dragging.

Example; load a stored user effect from one session to another.
In this example lets imagine that Guest, the vocalist is joining The Examples on stage. Guest requires a special delay effect patch to suit his voice. The special effect parameters are available in a different PM5D le. There are two ways to transfer them; 1. Manually. Open Studio Manager and PM5DV2 Editor and look at the parameters in Guests show le. Then copy them manually into the show le of The Examples and store them. This is acceptable if there is only one effect but if Guest was going to sing several songs with different effects it could be tedious and error prone. 2. Use PM5DV2 Editor to drag them across.

Before Guest Delay FX can be transferred from one le to another it must be stored to the effect library. Using PM5DV2 Editor, open the scene with the effect, open the Effect Editor Window and store the effect to the library. (This might already be done by Guests engineer.)
Next, drag the stored effect from the right hand column (INTERNAL DATA) and drop in the left hand column (FILE) and conrm. You cannot choose library positions less than 056 as these are ROM for the Yamaha presets. Save the new user library by clicking on SAVE above the FILE column. This will save the library onto your computer as a.PM5 le. However it is important to understand this is not a PM5D session le, just an effects library. For this reason we suggest you give the library a name that reects what its contents are, because it is easy to get it mixed up with other.PM5 les if you dont. In this case we choose GuestFX. If you put this le onto a PCMCIA card you can Advanced Load it into a PM5D console, being sure to carefully limit the range of library entries and target to an empty location.
But you can also do this without the console. Close the Guest session and open The Examples. Open the Effect Library window. Next open the GuestFX library on the FILE side, by using the Open button above the FILE column. (It could still open from the saving). Drag the stored Guest Delay FX from FILE to INTERNAL data. Choose a location that is free.
More Library Window dragging.
This technique of dragging items across the library window will work for other library items too. Notable exceptions are the User Dened Key libraries and the SETUP library. It is not possible to, say create a Bank B, and drag it into the console or create some preferences and drag them into the console. These can only enter the console by synchronisation or by loading from a prepared PCMCIA card. In addition to the library items, scenes can be dragged in this way, but we should pay special attention to scenes because they are complicated by the linking of Input Patch, Output Patch and HA libraries.
Using two PM5DV2 Editors.
An alternative to dragging from INTERNAL DATA to FILE and saving as a library le, is to open two instances of the PM5DV2 Editor. The advantage of this is that two sessions can be opened at the same time and data dragged across from one to the other without going through the middle stage of saving. This is particularly effective when one editor is on-line with the console and one is off-line. You can drag from an off-line session and drop directly into the console! Take great care not to have two editors on-line with the console at the same time and name the editors to avoid confusion!
Memory Structure of Scenes.
Background The PM5D scene memory contains the huge range of parameters such as EQ, dynamics, levels, FX presets and parameters, GEQ etc. that make up the mix. But it is important to understand that the patching and particularly the naming of channels is not stored within the scene memory. HA values and +48V settings are also stored separately in an HA library. Input patch and name is in the Input Patch Library and Output patch and name is in the Output Patch Library. So for the console to make a scene recall properly it must not only have the stored scene data, but also the HA Library (RH only), Input Patch Library and Output Patch Library. The engineer has only one recall button so obviously there must be internal links. When a scene is recalled the appropriate libraries are recalled at the same time via these links. In normal operation of the console this is done automatically, but when Advanced loading scenes and libraries it is sometimes necessary to reset these links. The linked library number is stored as part of the scene when the scene is created.

Wireless remote control of PM5D.
USB cable limitations mean remote control of PM5D by a PC is limited to a 5m connection. Some wireless USB devices are available but these are generally not of a professional audio system build quality or capable of transmitting over much distance. Instead we recommend to use a PC with a wireless access point connected to the console and remote control this PC from another using a wireless VNC connection. Setup of this conguration is beyond the scope of this document, but it is increasingly popular. Good control can be achieved from a tablet PC and some users are even experimenting with remote control from PDA or mobile phones.

PM5D/PM5D-RH Quick Start Guide in three parts.
Thank you very much for reading through these guides. We hope they help you get the best from the PM5D system. The have become quite lengthy for something called a quick start guide, but PM5D is a very comprehensive digital mixer. The ofcial manuals contain much more information and sections not mentioned in these guides. Subjects like the use of User Dened Keys to generate GPI or MIDI commands to control playback devices, lighting or AV equipment. Timecode and other triggers like MIDI can be used to recall scenes within the console or even operate faders and other parameters too. There is information about the use of surround sound congurations, GPI controllers: input and output, Timecode and Cascade connections to other mixers and much more to learn!
