The Yamaha TF-Rack is a rack-mountable digital audio mixing console that features a touchscreen display, and is expandable up to 40 input channels by adding the optional Tio1608-D I/O rack.

The TF-Rack console itself provides 16 analog XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs with 48V phantom power, as well as an analog RCA stereo line input, and 16 analog XLR outputs. Each combo input channel features a recallable D-PRE microphone preamp, as well EQ and two dynamics processors. In addition, the console offers eight powerful FX processors with patches ranging from reverb and delay, to modulation effects such as flanger and chorus, to utility processing like 3-band multi-band compression. The TF-Rack ships with Steinberg’s Nuendo Live for advanced multi-tracking and virtual sound check capabilities.
