AES 2015: Yamaha Showcases New Flagship Rivage PM10 Digital Mixing System
Yamaha Professional Audio (Demo Room #1A03) will display new products and conduct in-room demonstrations at this year’s AES Show (Oct. 29-Nov. 1, Javits Center, NYC), including the new flagship Rivage PM10 Digital Mixing System.
According to Yamaha, the Rivage PM10 increases the quality and versatility necessary in a live sound environment, inheriting features from the PM Series Consoles. Unique features include partnerships with Rupert Neve Designs, TC Electronic, and Eventide, as well as unprecedented performance defining yet another milestone for Yamaha sound reinforcement consoles. The modular PM10 system provides the flexibility to configure and ideally match the scale and functional requirements of any application.
The NEXO GEO M620 is a full-range unit for stand-alone, curved array or line array application. Extremely compact in size (7.52 x 14.69 x 10.24 in) and lightweight (less than 22 lbs), the GEO M620 uses a NEXO-designed long-excursion high-efficiency 6.5” LF driver and 1x 1″ throat driver on a BEA/FEA optimized Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource, to deliver a frequency response of 80 Hz – 19 kHz ±3dB, with nominal peak SPL of 127dB. Fully integrated 3-point rigging system. The NEXO ID Series loudspeaker cabinet is a very compact, low profile, small format, yet high output, single speaker for use under balcony, for front fill and side fill applications, and is the perfect accompaniment to NEXO line arrays in acoustically challenging spaces.
NUAGE is used primarily for commercial production applications ranging from audio post-production to music recording and mixing and is gaining vast market acceptance. NUAGE V1.7 software will provide support for Steinberg Nuendo 7, as well as the addition of a multitude of control improvements, support for GPI devices that can improve studio communication, and greater control for Avid Pro Tools with plug-in and shortcut assignments.
Version 3.1 is now available for the CL and QL Series Digital Mixing Consoles, adding a number of new features including control of the RSio64-D, or “bento box”, which serves as a bridge between a Dante network and the popular MY-card format. Several significant new features have been added in StageMix Version 5.1 for CL, M7CL and LS9 Digital Consoles including 121-Band Real Time Analyzer (RTA) support that expands on the 61-band capability of the
current RTA by using the built-in iPad microphone. The 121-band mode is now selectable via the SETUP screen.
TF Series Digital Mixers offer intuitive operation, advanced features, and renowned Yamaha to an even wider range of users. New TF Series features include three dedicated apps – TF Editor, TF StageMix™, and TF MonitorMix – that enhance the usability of the Series with interfaces that seamlessly extend the consoles’ own interfaces on any device.
Powered by a 1020W Class-D amplifier and an 18” woofer with a durable 4” voice coil housed in a sturdy band-pass type plywood enclosure, the new Yamaha DXS18 sub is able to deliver an impressive 136 dB maximum SPL, and an extended LF response down to 32Hz, with exceptional clarity and minimal distortion.
The Yamaha RSio64-D I/O audio interface provides up to 64 inputs and 64 outputs with Dante/Mini-YGDAI card conversion for broadcast, recording, live sound, and other professional audio applications. The new RSio64-D is a digital ‘Bento Box’ of sorts, allowing a modular approach to bridging multiple audio formats with over 30 available MY-Cards.
