LS9 control of PM5D/DSP5D

Post  Mr.X on Thu Jan 03, 2008 10:01 pm

So, playing around today with controlling the 5D from an LS9. It's useable, but still missing some major features. Thought I would start a thread about it and list what I know can be controlled so far and what cannot. Maybe others can add to the list and look at workarounds? I haven't checked out all functions so this is just a preliminary list...

Controllable:
- Faders 1-48 and Stereo 1-4
- Channel On/Off
- EQ - all parameters EXCEPT HPF on/off and Type I/II. HPF frequency works, though.
- Comp/Gate parameters (DYN1 on LS9 is always GATE on 5D, DYN2 on LS9 is always COMP on 5D)
- Mixes 1-16 - Send Level, Pre/Post, On/Off, Master Level
- Graphics (GEQ 1 on 5D is 1A on LS9, GEQ 2 on 5D is 1B on LS9 and so on)
- Attenuator
- Mute Masters

Not Controllable:
- HA gain and phantom
- Mute group on channel
- HPF on/off
- DCA fader or assignment
- Input Patch
- Mixes 17-24 levels

Hi Andy,

Was this with a LS9-16 or 32?

It's the 32.

Have you tried this?

can you explain how you connect an LS9 to the DSP?

You'd have to midi from the LS9 to a PM5D. You might be able to do it directly between the LS9 and DSP5D via the CAT5 but I'm not sure that the DSP5D would respond to midi commands from the LS9 directly.

interesting

very interesting that this is possible, but por que? Are you trying to use the LS9 as a second control surface, with no audio passing through it? anybody know the cable limitations and impedance of MIDI? I have a 5D in my mainstage venue and an LS932 in my studio theater space. can I run midi down xlr/coax/cat5 dry lines and drop my LS9 on stage as a monitor control surface?

There's not that much point to it. Yamaha originally said that the DSP5D was going to be controllable by the LS9 which would be nice if you needed a smaller footprint control surface. In the end, it's possible, but very limited.
Possibly some software could be created to bridge the messages between the 2 devices, but there'd have to be some serious interest and money involved to take up that cause.
