Notes
  • In order to use the editor software with firmware V2.01, you MUST use M7CL V2 Editor V2.5.0.
  • "Direct access of Sends on Fader from knobs during the Sends on Fader mode" feature is not implemented in this release. This feature will be made available in a future update.

New Features
  • In SENDS ON FADER mode, the top panel faders can now be used to adjust input to MATRIX send levels.
  • In SENDS ON FADER mode, the send-destination MATRIX bus can now be selected by pressing the [MATRIX] navigation key and then pressing a [SEL] key in the Centralogic section.
  • Various channel parameters can now be saved together as part of the input channel library or the output channel library.
  • You can now select POST ON (immediately after the fader and the [ON] key) as an insert or direct output position.
  • When specifying or clearing a GEQ insertion, insert will now be turned on/off automatically.
  • When you enable channel link, HA gain and fader operations will now be linked while maintaining the level difference between channels.
  • You can now use the Global Paste function to copy and paste desired channel or parameter settings from the current scene to multiple scene data in memory.
  • The attenuator is now an independent Recall Safe parameter and no longer part of the EQ.
  • The STEREO MASTER fader and the MONO MASTER fader can be used to control monitor output level.
  • Additional functions can now be assigned to the user-defined keys.

Improvements
  • Input channel GATE can now be set to as low as -72dB.
  • Multiple scenes now cannot be cut to prevent unintended operations. It was possible to cut but not paste multiple scenes in previous firmware versions.
  • Categorization of Recall Safe parameters were revised as follows:
    • INPUT MIX SEND now includes INPUT TO MIX PRE/POST.
    • INPUT MATRIX SEND now includes INPUT TO MATRIX PRE/POST.
    • MIX TO MATRIX SEND now includes MIX TO MATRIX PRE/POST.
    • STEREO TO MATRIX SEND now includes STEREO TO MATRIX PRE/POST.
  • INPUT TO MIX PRE/POST and INPUT TO MATRIX parameters now can be linked between channels (Channel Link).
  • Operation of USB storage devices of up to 16GB has been checked to support increasingly large-capacity USB storage devices (previous limitation was 2GB). This does not however guarantee compatibility with all commercially available USB storage devices of 16GB or less. M7CL firmware V1.12 and later formats media larger than 4GB in FAT32, and media 2GB or less in FAT16.
  • The movement of linked faders has been improved.
  • The default settings for the EXTERNAL HA PORT SELECT popup buttons in the VIRTUAL RACK window have been modified to allow quick external head amp settings when SB168-ES devices are connected as below:
    • ID #1: SLOT1 1-8
    • ID #2: SLOT1 9-16
    • ID #3: SLOT2 1-8
    • ID #4: SLOT2 9-16

Supplementary Information
  • In Global Paste operations, unlike other similar operations, the Insert Out and Direct Out parameters of input channels are included not in INPUT PATCH but in OUTPUT PATCH.
  • Some parameters included in OUTPUT for Global Paste operations differ between those when ALL is selected and those when WITH MIX SEND/WITH MATRIX SEND is selected. When ALL is selected, this includes SIGNAL TYPE (STEREO/MONOx2) but excludes PAN LINK and SEND PAN (from input channels). When WITH MIX SEND/WITH MATRIX SEND is selected, this includes SEND PAN but excludes SIGNAL TYPE and PAN LINK.
  • When you try to "global paste" to scenes in which some input channels are linked, the copied parameters are pasted only to the input channels of the paste destination.
  • When you load a file saved in M7CL V1 to an M7CL running firmware Version 2, the channel library data of the previous session remains accessible. When a V1 file is loaded to the M7CL V2 Editor, the channel library data of the previous session is cleared.
