Lake Processing has become the de-facto standard for speaker processing in live sound applications. The MY8-LAKE is a DSP card for Yamaha digital mixing consoles, developed through close technological cooperation between Yamaha and Lake. The full power of Mesa EQ, Ideal Graphic EQ, and Linear Phase Crossover functions are packed into one compact card, providing immense processing capability and precise, intuitive control right at your fingertips.

[Notice] When using MY8-LAKE with the PM5D/PM5D-RH, a hardware upgrade for the PM5D/PM5D-RH is necessary. Please note that a fee will be charged for this upgrade. For details, contact your Yamaha dealer.


  • 8-in/8-out Mesa mode (system EQ), 4-in/12-out Contour mode (crossover), or a combination of both for versatile processing.
  • 96 kHz internal processing, supporting 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 88.2 kHz sample rates.
  • Compatible with Smaart sound system measurement software for efficient, effective speaker tuning.
  • Flexible system setup via Yamaha digital mixer insert points and MY8-LAKE card AES/EBU connectors.
  • Lake Controller software application allows comprehensive overall management of all Lake devices in the system.
  • Over 1,000 speaker presets included for fast, accurate tuning with a wide range of systems.

*Regarding Nexo speaker presets
The Nexo presets included in Lake Controller preset library cannot be used with MY8-LAKE since Nexo loudspeakers are intended to be used only with Nexo TD Controlers.

Cutting Edge Features with an Intuitive Interface
Lake Processing technology makes it possible to achieve maximum sonic quality in any live sound situation. Mesa EQ with asymmetrical response curves, Ideal Graphic EQ with minimum inter-band interference, Linear Phase Crossover that allows steep slopes without disrupting phase characteristics: these are some of the Lake Processing features that make it easy to deliver ideal sonic performance in venues of any size, with any acoustic characteristics, and with any speakers from any manufacturer. The intuitive Lake Controller user interface contributes to easy, efficient operation, even under the pressure of preparing for a live show.

The History of Lake and Sonic Evolution
The history of Lake processing began in the late 1990s, when live sound engineer, the late Bruce Jackson and DSP algorithm creator David McGrath, with the support of renowned sound reinforcement provider Clair Brothers, began development of a high-performance speaker processing system that would be both flexible and easy to operate. As a result of these efforts the Lake Contour speaker processor and Mesa Quad EQ system EQ were announced in 2001. The Lake processor was rapidly adopted by professionals throughout the world for the outstanding quality and operational efficiency it brought to the live sound environment. In 2004 the Lake Contour and Mesa Quad EQ functions were combined in the revolutionary Dolby Lake Processor, a processor that became a standard in high-end live sound applications. 2007 saw the arrival of the PLM10000Q, created in cooperation with Lab.gruppen. After the technology passed fully into the capable hands of Lab.gruppen in 2009, further development led to the development and release of the revolutionary LM26 and the LM44 under the Lake brand. And in November of 2011, a close technological alliance between Yamaha and Lake has resulted in the development of the MY8-LAKE expansion card, making it possible to neatly integrate Lake processing into Yamaha digital mixing consoles for unprecedented sound management power and flexibility.
