Yamaha gets theatrical, adds Rupert Neve and Dante

Posted on: Friday 19th of October 2018

The new Yamaha RIVAGE PM7 Digital Audio Console made its debut at AES NY 2018. Positioned directly below the current RIVAGE PM10 Digital Mixing System with emphasis on 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.

Two new high-capacity Yamaha cards extend the interface capability of the RIVAGE PM Series: HY144-D-SRC Dante Audio offers up to 144 channels of integrated Sample Rate Conversion to a wide variety of Dante devices and applications allowing for non-synchronous connectivity. Five modes of operation can be utilized: 144 inputs with SRC, 144 outputs with SRC, 72 I/O with SRC, 144 I/O with synchronous SRC, or 144 I/O with no SRC. The HY128-MD card offers up to 128 channels of MADI with Sample Rate conversion using either coaxial or optical interfacing for connection to recording systems or MADI-based infrastructure.

A no-charge update Version 5.0 for Yamaha CL and QL Digital Audio Consoles will provide enhanced convenience, new features, and expandability. The well-regarded Portico 5045 ‘Primary Source Enhancer’ by Rupert Neve Designs is now available in the Premium Rack. Individual Fade Time functionality allows different fade times to be set for each fader, an important feature for users who need complex fader control, especially for musicals and other theatrical applications.

Two new Dante equipped I/O Rack units have been added to the company’s professional audio lineup: Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2. Together with the new CSD-R7 control surface, the I/O Racks are components of the RIVAGE PM Series and can also be used with current CL and QL Series Digital Mixing Consoles. Both the Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 include dual power supply units to minimize the possibility of power loss during a show.

Yamaha’s Rivage PM digital mixing system has a firmware update to V2.5, adding a new Theatre Mode designed for plays, musicals and other theatrical productions. The Theatre Mode facilitates scene and costume changes with four banks that can be used to store different EQ and dynamics settings for individual performers. The V2.5 update also supports the Audinate Dante Domain Manager, providing further sound system security and scalability when a Rivage PM system is used at the core of a Dante audio network.
