New Yamaha RIVAGE PM7 Offers PM10 Experience, Integrated Portability, Flexibility, and New High Capacity Cards
LAS VEGAS (June 06, 2018) — The Yamaha RIVAGE PM7 Digital Audio Console along with new high capacity cards will make their InfoComm debut at booth #C1346 and demo room #N112. 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. 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.
Two new high-capacity cards extend the interface capability of the RIVAGE PM Series. The HY144-D-SRC Dante® Audio interface card offers up to 144 channels of integrated Sample Rate Conversion to a wide variety of Dante® devices and applications allowing for non-synchronous connectivity. Four modes of operation can be utilized: 144 inputs with SRC, 144 outputs with SRC, 72 I/O with SRC, or 144 I/O with no SRC. The HY128-MD 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. The HY144-D-SRC and HY128-MD will be available in the fall.
