The purchase of the TF5 is a great way to transform an older tech team into the digital age. Livestreaming will be the ultimate goal, however, we will be able to post mix our productions and give copies of our performances to folks who can't be at a live event. Great days ahead!!

High audio quality, a joy to use, fader issues

By Guy

The TF5 was a huge step up in audio quality and routing flexibility vs. the aging Presonus it replaced. Correctly choosing and routing the inputs and outputs is easy once you know how, and I strongly recommend learning how to do this even if you have someone do the initial setup for you. That way if a source disappears or doesn't seem to be working you'll be able to quickly diagnose and fix the issue. The TF5 has a learning curve but the product designers did an excellent job making it approachable for new users without crippling its very flexible feature set. The layer system is easy to learn and use, dynamics processing (Gate/Expander and Compressor) is top notch and very user-friendly, and the EQ is really nice: you can use the touch screen, jog dial, or both, to choose frequency, boost/cut, and width (Q). The app is full-featured, runs on a tablet, and lets you remotely control all critical mixer features and operation. Comparing this to a Soundcraft si Expression 3, it's not even close. The Soundcraft is not a bad board, but the TF5 is newer and it shows. Larger, more responsive, easier to read touchscreen display, easier to use, significantly better app, better signal processing, and better sounding effects (that are also easier to set up). The only issue we've had is after about 18 months random faders will randomly fail to return to their correct position when switching between layers. This is an issue because it affects the mix level of that channel. Let's say fader 5 is turned up on Layer 1 and turned all the way down on Layer 2. When you switch from Layer 1 to Layer 2 the fader for channel 5 snaps all the way down. But when you switch back to Layer 1 it stays there rather than snapping back to where you had it set. Oops, you just lost your main vocal. Or guitar, or piano, or whatever. To make matters worse it doesn't happen all the time and it doesn't always happen to the same fader. Other than that issue the mixer has performed well and is a pleasure to use. ANY digital mixer, even a top line brand like Yamaha, can fail. My advice: if your mixer is mission-critical have a backup plan.

Good product

Excelente for the price. Had a problem with overheating/crashing but a technician managed to fix it without having to buy a new master board. Hope Yamaha continues this line and improve the next generation, I would buy one.

The Yamaha TF5 is laid out beautifully for even first-time digital console users. Well built construction with a user-friendly interface. Great sound quality for entry-level digital console. One-Knob feature is great for beginners.

I would highly recommend this product.
