They are not known for accepting customer input so I don’t have a good feeling about this. The wired connections between the members of a string quartet present minimal problems. I agree with techhead, in that mLan is a great idea. Part of the MIDI spec is the whole mono thingy which Yamaha misinterpretted as meaning something else. In other words it does not interfere with other devices such as hard drives and video recorders. In addition, Yamaha and Otari have developed a second-generation chipset that supports additional channels. Haven’t been able to ID the real world differences between basic firewire and Yamaha’s mLan connection type.

While FireWire has never been as popular as USB mln, it has remained a popular choice for audio and video professionals. If Yamaha is starting from scratch they have a long hard road to go to get all the bugs worked out.

Consistent with 48 C. Firewwire Macintosh computers, FireWire can be used to boot a computer in target disk modewhich allows the hard drive to show up as an external drive on another computer. The configurations are automatically re-established if a device is disconnected from the network and then reconnected.

Terrible latency compared to firewire units like MOTUblue screens of death from the drivers, flakey driver software with a terrible UI.

There are two versions of the mLAN protocol.


No amendment or firewjre of this Agreement will be binding unless in writing and signed by a fully authorized representative of Yamaha. This permission to re-download shall not limit friewire any manner the disclaimer of warranty set forth in Section 5 below.

Yamaha and its licensees have been working on it for a long time and much more of this will be seen in the future. What are the differences and impact? Thanks for the input, folks. The wired connections between the members of a string quartet present minimal problems.

Even though recent FireWire based products from Yamaha can interoperate with earlier mLAN devices using a computer, any mention of mLAN is notably absent from new product announcements and driver updates over the last few years.

The FireWire interface, which was introduced on Macintosh computers inis backwards compatible with FireWire devices using an adapter. Audio and MIDI can be routed in any configuration and these configurations can be saved and recalled at any time.

There aren’t any rules. This Agreement shall be interpreted according to and governed by Japanese law without reference to principles of conflict of laws. But if you think Yamaha who has RULED over the digitaL mixer market for eight years, will drop this ball when they are almost to the finish line you got another think coming As of earlymLAN appeared to have reached the end of its product life. In addition, outputs must be properly connected to inputs.

This is maln the case with any other audio interfaces that use “Firewire” connections. Examples include external hard drivesvideo cameras, and audio interfaces. If this is the case, install an appropriate PC interface card.
