Yamaha Professional Audio has launched the Rivage PM7 Digital Mixing System, the core of which 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 console is the same size as the Rivage PM10 system control surface but with the DSP engine built into the console. The panel layout is the same. It features 120 input channels, 60 mix buses, 24 matrices, and a selection of 48 plug-ins, while its Dual Console function allows it to be connected to one of the PM10 system control surfaces. The console offers connectivity to 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, as well as digital sections with VCM technology models of Rupert Neve Designs’ transformer and SILK processing circuitry. The system can be equipped with the Dante audio network from Audinate, and Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 I/O racks will be released simultaneously as the system components. yamahaproaudio.com
