Step 2: EtherSound Network Setup
To setup the EtherSound network, a software application AVS-ESMonitor by AuviTran is used.
Download and install AVS-ESMonitor from AuviTran’s website.
http://www.auvitran.com/
Note: AVS-ESMonitor versions 3.5 and later support the SB168-ES.
Initial setup for AVS-ESMonitor
Select
Windows Start Menu >> Programs >> AuviTran >> EtherSound Monitor >> ES-Control Panel
Quick Setup procedure
- Make sure the Service is ON.
- Select the “EtherSound Adapter”
(Ethernet port of your PC connected to
MY16-ES64)
Launch the AVS-ESMonitor.
1. Make sure the mode is Online.
2. Click the [Reset ES Networks] button.

SB168-ES and LS9 Quick Setup Guide
Devices being connected on a EtherSound network
will be displayed on the “List” view.
Select any SB168-ES device.
Note: Devices are listed in order by their MAC address in
the default state, but can be named in the “Properties”
page for easier operation.
The “Properties” page of SB168-ES is displayed
on the screen.
Click the [Control] tab to open the “Control” Page
of SB168-ES.
In the Quick Setup area

SB168-ES and LS9 Quick Setup Guide
Step 3: LS9 Console Setup
Loading the LS9 Session File available on Yamaha Pro Audio website achieves all the
settings of the LS9.
–Download the “SB_LS932.L9A” (for LS9-32) or “SB_LS916.L9A” (for LS9-16) file from the
website to your USB key.
http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/training/self_training/
– Load the “SB_LS932.L9A” or “SB_LS916.L9A” file to your LS9.
Note: Loading session file into LS9 will clear all the existing SCENEs and setup data. If you have
existing SCENEs and/or setup data on the console, please refer to Appendix F.
–Recall SCENE 001.
The SB_LS932.L9A file patches the slot inputs to the console first layer 1-32 (The XLR inputs on
the console rear are patched to the console second layer 33-64). It also assigns the HA control
information to pass out of the console to remote control the SB168-ES Head Amps.
Note: Treat SCENE 001 of this file like SCENE 000 on a mixer without SB168-ES.
SB168-ES channels are now patched as the image below. In the case of LS9-16 there is no
second stagebox and further manual patching should be done to access Matrix or other Mix
channels. For manual patching of LS9 consoles see Appendix C.
If you are to use the SB168-ES channels to add inputs to the second layer 33-64 (17-32), see
Appendix H.
All setup procedure has been completed, you are ready to soundcheck!

After following the three simple steps your LS9 and SB168-ES stagebox system is setup and
ready to work for most situations without any further changes.
However, adding SB168-ES and MY16-ES64 to LS9 does not simply provide remote
input/output. The stagebox solution also adds network functionality using EtherSound
technology. EtherSound provides options for a more flexible, expandable system such as
splits for monitor consoles, digital recording, and staying digital from mic preamp right through
to power amp etc... There are more than 30 partners making EtherSound devices so
integration with other manufacturers and standards is made easy.
This Appendix section offers further details to explain your system, how to make patch
changes and describes how to work within a more complex system for advanced users.

Appendix
Appendix A: Which patching system to use when?
Traditional analog systems can be patched at the stagebox or the console rear panel.
Traditional digital systems are the same, but rear panel patching is replaced by software.
SB168-ES uses a network system that introduces another patch option.
Use the AVS-ESMonitor Quick Setup feature to achieve network patching in one easy step.
After it is set your system can work just like the traditional digital system, no further network
patching is necessary, unless you redesign the system. However, the addition of a network to
your setup prepares you for future upgrades of your signal path.
Use the network patch system to create digital splits to a recording or add a broadcast or
monitor desk split. Use the network to route channels to signal processors like DME-ES or
other manufacturers ES equipped units. Use network channels to create tie-lines from one
SB168 to another without going through console channels. Note; changing the network patch
can affect all the units connected to the network. Use it for setup only. (see Appendix D)
Use the LS9 patch system where you want to effect only your console patching. Note; the
LS9 patch is part of the console SCENE recall system, and recalling SCENEs does not affect
audio to other units (unless you are remote controlling HA gain and +48V via the network) .

Appendix
Appendix D: Manual patch of EtherSound
The Quick Setup function of the AVS-ESMonitor supports up to four SB168-ES units
connected to an MY16-ES64. (In the case of PM5D, DM2000 or DME64N). However, if any
other Ethersound devices are present in the network, Quick Setup cannot be used.
To edit a network created with Quick Setup or patch a more complex setup including other
devices, please refer to the Yamaha "EtherSound Setup Guide" at the Yamaha Pro Audio
website SB168-ES product page:

Appendix
Appendix F: Assigning stagebox patch to existing SCENEs
If you are an experienced LS9 user and you have pre-existing SCENEs saved in your console
or on a USB stick, you will find that loading these sessions and recalling these SCENEs will
recall the patching that was used when they were created. If the SCENEs were created
before the addition of SB168-ES, then they will not suit your new SB168-ES remote stagebox
system.
This appendix explains a method using the “Focus” feature to change the patch information in
existing SCENEs.
This section shows a short-cut method to insert one SCENE into another session without using
Studio Manager. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can do this with Studio Manager by dragging the
SCENE from a second open instance of LS9 Editor.
1. Backup your console session to a USB key.
2. Make a note of HA values as these are not copied
from AD IN to SB168 HA.
3. Load up the Pre-patched SB168-ES.L9A session.

Appendix
This section assigns HA remote control information to specified remote units. (Note that SB168ES appears as two AD8HR units.)
This section moves the SB168-ES patch from the standard downloaded SCENE and applies it to
your pre-existing SCENE using the “Focus method”.
5. Reload your Saved session.
6. Paste the stored SB168-ES SCENE to a vacant
position in your SCENE LIST.
7. Open the Rack page and go to the External HA screen.
Use the External HA Port Select button to assign all the
displayed HA controllers to the slots. (This setup is not part
of SCENE MEMORY and is set for all SCENEs.)
8. Press the [SCENE MEMORY] key repeatedly to
access the SCENE FOCUS screen.
9. In the SCENE requiring the SB168 patch,
change focus from [ALL] to [RACK] [HA] …. ….
[IN] [OUT] [With Send].

Appendix
EtherSound data flows bi-directionally in a daisy chain. If the last device in the daisy chain is
connected to the first, a ring is formed and data has a choice of directions to reach its
destination. This provides a fault tolerant or redundant system that can survive a cable fault.
However, special setup is required to apply ring patching and prevent EtherSound data
traveling endlessly around the loop and causing a network crash or audio crackles.
Choosing [Ring] at this stage applies this special setup so that you can link the last device to
the first and have a cable redundant system.
In Ring redundancy mode the total audio channel count is limited to 64. (In daisy chain mode
it is 64 each direction =128) Use the Channel Allocation slider to allow more input or output
channels at the expense of the other.
For further information on the use of Ring mode, please refer to the Yamaha "EtherSound
Setup Guide" at the Yamaha Pro Audio website SB168-ES product page:
http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/products/
Appendix G: Using the Ring setting in Quick Setup
In the Quick Setup area
- Select [MY16-ES64 Slot Internal Connection
(LS9)].
- Select [Ring].
- Click the [APPLY] button.
After the confirm box is checked all the network
patching is done. HA control routing is setup and
all information is saved to the EtherSound
devices so they will remember after AVSESMonitor is disconnected or the power is cycled.

Appendix
Appendix H: Using SB168-ES inputs on LS9 second layer
All channels arriving at the MY card slots are patched to the second layer in the default state.
Assign External HA remote control setup as shown below. Further details can be found in
Appendix E.
SB168-ES channels are now patched as the image below, and the selected channel HA encoder
will remotely adjust the gain. In the case of LS9-16 there is no second stagebox. Further manual
patching should be done to access St L, St R, Matrix or other Mix channels. For manual patching
of LS9 consoles see Appendix C.
