Yamaha Rm800 (1996) 16/24 inputs 8 groups

Here's the full input channel strip controls, from the top down.

• Mic/Line-Tape Switch: this selects whether the signal from the mic/line or tape return socket is fed through the main input module.

• 20dB Pad Switch and Gain Control: these, between them, offer an input range of -60dB to +4dB, accommodating a wide variety of mics and electronic equipment.

• Signal and Peak LEDs: these indicate the presence of signal (green), or a signal within 3dB of clipping (red).

• Three-band EQ, with Bypass Switch: High and Low bands are shelving, offering +/-15dB of gain at 12kHz and 80Hz respectively; the Mid band is swept, with a range of 250Hz-5kHz, and +/-15dB gain.

• Auxiliary Sends 1, 2, 3: these are standard post-fader sends for use with external effects units.

• Auxiliary Send 4: this can be used as another post-fade effects send for the main signal path; it's also switched into the monitor path when the monitor is used for extra mix inputs, becoming a dedicated aux send for that path.

• Monitor Pan pot (labelled L/5-6/R pan), and associated Level Control: these are used to set up a monitor mix, as a pre-fader monitor stereo send, or to control the level and pan-position of the secondary mixer signal path.

• Monitor Mic/Line-Tape Switch: this selects which signal is sent to the monitor output.

• Assign Switches: these are used, in conjunction with the pan pot, to assign the main channel input to the sub groups or the main stereo mix.

• Main Pan pot: this positions input signals in the stereo field, or assigns signals to the sub-groups.

• On switch: this mutes or engages the main input signal.

• PFL: Pre Fade Listen.

• Scribble Strip.

• 100mm fader.



• 16 or 24 inputs, 8 subgroups.
• 40 inputs on mixdown for RM800-16, 56 inputs for RM800-24.
• Balanced XLR and quarter-inch jack inputs.
• 48V phantom power (last eight channels only).
• Signal and peak LEDs.
• Three-band EQ with swept mid.
• Four aux sends, four stereo returns.
• Direct tape outputs (last eight channels only).
• Input insert points (last eight channels only).
• PFL/AFL monitoring.
• Ten 11-segment LED meters.
• 100mm faders.
• Dedicated 2-track input.
• Insert points for stereo and group 7-8 outputs.
• +4dB and -10dB stereo and group outs.
• Stereo sub-mix in for patching in an additional mixer.
