The TF3 offers sizable input capacity and hands-on control from a compact console. It has 25 motor faders, 48 input mixing channels, and a large suite of inputs and outputs.
Signature to TF Series performance is TouchFlow Operation™. This tool brings live sound reinforcement to a new level, letting you respond to the music and artists on stage quickly and freely. TouchFlow Operation interface was optimized for touch panel control and is easy for beginners and seasoned pros to navigate for finding the ideal mix. Even the most discerning ears will be satisfied with sound quality thanks to recallable D-PRE preamplifiers. Instantly recall favorable settings with scene memory storage of up to 200 scenes. Work from pre-programmed scenes or create scenes of your own. Scenes are divided into A and B banks, making it easier to sort and organize scenes by type.
Compressor and EQ performance are central to mixing and the TF3 makes these tools seamless and easy to implement. The 1-knob COMP from Yamaha’s analog mixers is refined in this digital console, offering all the functions of compression without needing to juggle multiple parameters. The same concept was applied to a 1-knob EQ feature for fast and smooth operation, complete with Vocal Mode and Intensity Mode. Both the 1-knob COMP and 1-knob EQ are provided on the output channels as well.
QuickPro Presets™ were developed for a wide variety of microphones and output equipment from several major manufacturers. These practical presets let you get incredibly close to the ideal sound – helpful for novice engineers to learn the console, or for experienced engineers to save time. All presets were precisely tuned by using actual microphones, instruments, and speakers.
Eight powerful processing/effect units are featured on the TF3. The TF3 uses the standard type of SPX processors and offers 19 programs ranging from reverb and delay to modulation effects.
Three dedicated apps pair with the TF3 to extend the console on any device. Add the TF Editor, TF StageMix, or MonitorMix (sold separately).
