On February 6, Yamaha Professional Audio announced an addition to the RIVAGE professional audio lineup: the RIVAGE PM7 Digital Mixing System.
The core of the RIVAGE PM7 system includes the CSD-R7 Digital Mixing Console, TWINLANe-based RPio622 and RPio222 I/O Racks, and Dante-based Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 I/O Racks.
The CSD-R7 Digital Mixing Console is the central component of the RIVAGE PM7 system, positioned directly below the current RIVAGE PM10 Digital Mixing System.
“RIVAGE PM10 already has made a deep impression on professional sound engineers who praise it for its incredible sound quality and quick workflow,” states Marc Lopez, director of marketing, Yamaha Commercial Audio products, Yamaha Professional Audio division. “Our goal with RIVAGE PM7 is to offer the same user experience provided by our flagship RIVAGE PM10 system to a wider range of customers.”
With an emphasis of preserving workflow, the CSD-R7 is the same size as the RIVAGE PM10 system CS-R10 control surface but with the DSP engine built into the console offering enhanced portability and system flexibility while maintaining high operability.
The panel layout of the RIVAGE PM7 is the same as the flagship RIVAGE PM10, delivering the same user experience. With 120 input channels, 60 mix buses, 24 matrices, and a comprehensive selection of 48 top-quality plug-ins, the PM7 provides mixing capacity that is comparable to the RIVAGE PM10 (the latter has 144 input channels, 72 mix buses, 36 matrices, and 50 plug-ins).
A Dual Console function also allows the CSD-R7 to be connected to one of the RIVAGE PM10 system control surfaces (CS-R10 or CS-R10-S). A CS-R10-S, for example, can be used at front of house, for monitors, or as a sidecar expansion console for the CSD-R7, depending on space and system scale requirements.
The CSD-R7 Digital Mixing Console offers connectivity with two types of audio networks, allowing either or both to be used for connection and control of I/O Rack units. The dedicated TWINLANe network uses optical cable to handle up 400 channels of audio.
Combinations of the RPio622 and/or RPio222 I/O racks and HY256-TL or HY256-TL-SMF audio interface cards allow input via Hybrid Microphone Preamplifiers with analog input stages that take the Yamaha “natural sound” concept to new heights, as well as digital sections with immaculate VCM technology models of Rupert Neve Designs transformer and SILK processing circuitry that offer outstanding musicality and dimension.
