Compact, Easy-to-use, and Awesome Sounding!

Who knew that a console could unleash your creativity? Well, the Yamaha TF1 16-input digital console's fluid TouchFlow Operation lets you respond to the music onstage with effortless speed and freedom, ensuring that nothing restricts your inspiration. Whether you're an experienced engineer or a complete novice, the TF1's level of refinement is nothing short of astonishing, making it remarkably easy to achieve a great mix. And after listening to the TF1's great-sounding D-Pre mic preamps, we think you'll agree that this comfortable, smooth-operating compact digital mixer doesn't skimp on sound quality, either. At Sweetwater, we believe that the Yamaha TF1 is a truly evolved 16-input digital console, thanks to its straightforward touchscreen design and practical presets and scenes. Check it out for yourself!

Yamaha TF1 16-input Digital Console at a Glance:
  • TouchFlow Operation - smooth, natural control flow
  • 1-knob compression and EQ let you dial in the ideal sound
  • Presets and scenes - shortcuts to great sound
  • D-Pre mic preamps and onboard effects deliver phenomenal sound
TouchFlow Operation - smooth, natural control flow

Smooth and refined, the Yamaha TF1 16-input digital console's TouchFlow Operation provides you with straightforward control that never stands between you and your music. The user interface on the TF1's touchscreen gives you easy, direct accessibility, with a layout that promotes natural, efficient mixing. On top of that, you get a physical Touch & Turn knob right beside the touchscreen, as well as four User Defined knobs, making extra-precision adjustments a breeze.

1-knob compression and EQ let you dial in the ideal sound

Gain, compressor, and EQ setup is child's play with the Yamaha TF1 16-input digital console. Whether you're an experienced FOH engineer or volunteering to run sound for a worship service, the TF1's simplified 1-knob operation lets you adjust compressor and EQ settings with confidence. With a simple twist of a knob, you can use a compressor to bring a guitar to life, add punch to bass, tighten up a snare, and make vocals ride clearly on the mix. On top of that, the TF1's finely tuned EQ lets you achieve outstanding results with minimum effort in the shortest possible time. You also get a Vocal Mode for clear, well-defined vocals, and an Intensity mode for simplified control over EQ curves. Finally, the TF1's GainFinder optimizes your gain setup so you can achieve Grade-A sound quality with little effort.

Presets and scenes - shortcuts to great sound

The Yamaha TF1 is probably one of the least intimidating 16-input digital consoles in existence, thanks to its incredibly practical presets and scenes. Working with microphone manufacturers such as Audio-Technica, Sennheiser, and Shure as well as respected engineers, Yamaha has created a range of shortcuts to great sound that are effective in all kinds of situations. If you're a novice engineer, the TF1's presets will allow you to get a great mix without a bunch of tweaking. On the other hand, if you're an experienced engineer, you'll appreciate the significant time savings provided by having useful starting points instantly available to you. On top of that, you get two banks of scene memory (for a total of 200 scenes), that let you set up and instantly recall all of your settings for nearly any scenario you can dream up. You even get some pre-programmed scenes to get you started!

D-Pre mic preamps and onboard effects deliver phenomenal sound

The mic preamps play a significant role in defining the sound of your mix, that's why the Yamaha TF1 16-input digital console is loaded with 16 of their acclaimed D-Pre mic pres. Utilizing a circuit based on a discrete inverted Darlington configuration, D-Pre preamps provide you with a clean, precise sound that captures every nuance and subtlety of your source. The pure sound of these pres ensure that you won't need to spend hours EQ-ing just to get a barely-acceptable sound, like you would with low-quality mic preamps. You also get eight powerful processors, providing you with wide-ranging sonic control. In addition to the EQ and dynamics processors on each channel, you also get 17 programs based on Yamaha's world-famous SPX processors, ranging from reverb and delay, through modulation effects, to 3-band multiband compression.

This makes me smile

First, my perspective: I mix FOH full-time for my basic living, 300 shows/year on a CL5 in a 2000 seat house. This was my choice for my personal rig, where a minimum footprint & cabling becomes very important. The things I do outside my main gig consist of small venues, or bigger rooms with their own racks & stacks. I bought the TF1, with two of the Tio1608 stage boxes. Within just 3 hours of taking delivery, I put the console on line for a real gig (Didn’t need to light up the Dante for that room). Everyone, patrons, musicians, and the lady behind the bar … heard a big difference from the 01V I previously used on that gig. Next day, installed the Dante components, bench-tested, and everything worked exactly as documented using the “Quick Config” thing. The one caveat I should mention: if you have background with Yamaha digitals, your familiarity with the user interface isn’t of much use. They’ve made a big break here. The console touch screen interface feels very “iOS-ish”, no doubt by intention, but I had to forget my CL5 in order to get around. This series is clearly an attempt to address the never-ending problem of making digital mixing available to neophytes … and I can’t evaluate how well it does that, given my background. To a professional, it’s a big change that can at times feel a bit “dumbed-down”. But in the end it’s very easy to quickly get something that sounds really good, which is how I pay the bills.

A great mixer

I started my own sound company this past summer. I had used a tf3 and instantly liked the series. So i purchased the tf1 for my business. It takes alot if the guesswork out of mixing. Setting gain is super easy. Compression and Eq are a breeze. The only thing i dont like is when paired with a tio 1608 stagebox the output routing is less flexible than i would like, unless using dante controller. Great mixer id recommend it for anyone who can afford a cl5.
