von Ranson says he previously used the PM10 for the NBA Draft event and Night of Too Many Stars. "I often have to mix by numbers and meters when working on a live TV show as I'm not always able to monitor all of the signal paths. I find that much easier on Yamaha consoles than on any other manufacturer's console."
von Ranson said that the PM10's large input/output count and sophisticated routing, as well as 64-channels of Dan Dugan Designs auto-mixer "makes the use of a PM10 as a production desk hard to beat. Also, to my ears, it is probably the best sounding digital console I've used."
In addition to the GRAMMY Premiere event, a Yamaha PM10 was also used at the live broadcast. Firehouse Productions, New York, provided both consoles. V.P. of Design, Mark Dittmar, chose the PM10 for both events. "The legendary reliability of Yamaha desks makes it the prefect choice for high profile shows like the GRAMMY Awards. They sound amazing and flexible card slot options make it very easy to integrate into large shows like this."
