Yamaha Introduces QL Series of Digital Consoles

yamaha-ql1-ql5At the Prolight+Sound trade show, Yamaha released the all-in-one QL Series of digital consoles—the “little brother” to the CL Series.

The QL series inherits the performance and functionality of the CL Series, and is intended for small to medium scale live sound, corporate events, installations, and more.

  • Built-in Dante I/O (32×32 on the QL1, 64×64 on the QL5)
  • Gain compensation when sharing inputs with another controller
  • 2-track recording to USB flash drives
