    Audio is transmitted over the CobraNet network in units known as “bundles.” These bundles are processed at the receiving end to reconstitute the original audio signals. In the case of the MY16-C a bundle can contain from 3 to 8 channels. Each bundle is identified by a number from 0 to 65,279, and audio transmission via the network becomes possible when the same bundle number is specified at both the transmitting and receiving devices.

  • Page 7 The conductor for the network is automatically assigned and need not be specified by the operator. When an MY16-C is assigned to be the conductor for the network, the LED indicator to the right of the connector that is connected to the network will light orange. If the conductor fails for some reason, conductor status is automatically switched to another device on the network.

    The MY16-C System The internal signal flow of the MY16-C is shown in the illustration below. 16 audio inputs and 16 audio outputs are available, and for this example channels 1 ~ 8 are bundle 1, and channels 9 ~ 16 are bundle 2.

    The indicator will go out if a cable, hub, or other device connected to the network has failed. If the indicator remains lit or flashing even after the cable is disconnected, there may be a fault in the MY16-C card itself. In this case please refer the problem to qualified Yamaha service personnel. 4 [IN USE/CONDUCT] Indicators These are the indicators to the right of the [PRIMARY] and [SECONDARY] connectors.
  • Page 10 No serial control transmission occurs if this switch is set to “0”. When adjusting rotary switches please use a screwdriver with a blade that matches the switch groove. Attempting to use a screwdriver that is too large or too small can damage the switch. MY16-C Owner’s Manual...
  • Page 11 ■ DIP Switches The DIP switches on the MY16-C circuit board can be used to set audio resolution, latency, the clock synchronization mode, and clock frequency. All dip switches are OFF when the MY16-C is initially shipped. n The RESERVED 1 and RESERVED 2 switches are reserved for functions to be implemented in the future.

  • Page 13: Clock Synchronization Modes

    Non-network Device Host Synchronization 1 Use this mode if the device in which the MY16-C is installed is synchronized to a clock signal other than the CobraNet clock. When the Host Synchronization 1 mode is selected the MY16-C receives synchronization from the device in which it is installed (the "host"), and that clock signal is then supplied to the network.
  • Page 14 Host Synchronization 2 Use this mode if the MY16-C card is to be synchronized to the clock signal from another MY16-C card installed in the same device. When more than one MY16-C cards are installed in the same device and synchronization is to be received from the CobraNet network, set one of the installed MY16-C cards to Network Synchronization, and the other card(s) in the same device to Host Synchronization 2.
  • Page 15 In some cases, all three synchronization modes are combined. An example of all three synchronization modes used simultaneously.
