Yamaha QL5
32-Input, 16-Output Digital Mixing Console with Dante Networking and Dugan Automixing

OUR PART #  QL5


The Yamaha QL5 is an all-in-one mixing, processing and routing digital mixer with a 32 + 2 fader configuration that adapts to a wide range of channel layouts. The QL5's compact console footprint combined with large-scale capabilities makes it ideal for small to medium scale live sound performances, corporate events, installations, and much more.

The acclaimed CL series brought live digital mixing console performance to an unprecedented level of refinement with evolved sound quality, operability, and functionality, making Yamaha's digital mixers industry standards. Core features and performance inherited directly from the CL series - including natural sound supported by sonically superb internal processing capabilities, operation that adapts to the demands of almost any working environment, and built-in Dante networking that facilitates flexible system configuration - have now been embedded into the compact QL series digital mixing consoles.

Yamaha's QL series consoles feature circuitry and components that have been designed and selected to achieve outstanding audio purity from input to output. With that solid sonic foundation it becomes possible to take full advantage of built-in premium internal processors - such as the Portico 5033/5043 created in cooperation with Rupert Neve - to shape and create as required. For a wide range of speech applications built-in automatic mixing functionality from Dan Dugan Sound Design provides optimum channel balance while allowing the operator to concentrate on optimizing the overall sound.

The ability to respond swiftly and surely to multiple, rapidly changing demands is essential for effective live sound support. QL series consoles feature large touch-panel displays as well as “Touch and Turn” knobs that make up a remarkably smooth, efficient control interface. Attention has also been paid to details, such as fader feel and channel name display visibility, in order to deliver a sophisticated operating experience. Remote control and offline setup capability via an iPad or computer adds even more refinement to an already state-of-the-art operating environment.

In addition to ample analog input and output capacity, QL series consoles feature the same Dante audio networking protocol that provides broad connectivity in the CL consoles. There's also an innovative “Port to Port” feature that can patch any input port to any output port so the QL console can function as a remote I/O device for any other QL or CL series console, for example. Other flexibility enhancing features such as 2-track and multitrack recording capability, and dual MY expansion slots that allow processing capability or I/O to be added as required, make the QL consoles suitable for use as central components in an extensive variety of sound applications.
