Has MLAN been resurrected?
%$$"!! Hope not! JUST what the audio fraternity needs, another piggin' protocol!
I always thought Yamaha's mLan was an attempt at electronic "empire building"? Get a system out there for people to buy into and next year we'll all be......! They learn nothing from history. Beta v VHS. The time money and effort wasted on quadraphonics!
We already have 3 (?) Ethernet systems vying for space, let us hope mLan stays forgotten?
Whilst I agree, another day another protocol, MLAN did seem as if it would do for Audio what MIDI did for synths. And over the years, having, and having had the i88x, 01x, 01v96, 02r96 (especially useful for the transport control and the way it knits in with Cubase) it seems so obvious to add an audio interface to a mixer, ok, we have that now with QU-series and x32 etc but all we need from Yamaha is a Win10/64 driver and those older but very good mixers(01v96/02r96) have a new lease of life, but no, Yamaha in their wisdom just ditch us
