The new console is also making a huge impact as it makes its way around North America for one-on-one and group demonstrations held by invitation recently at Clair Global in Lititz, PA; and in early October at Eighth Day Sound in Cleveland; various October dates at SIR in Nashville by Clair Systems and Touring, Spectrum Sound, Morris Light and Sound, CTS Audio, and Memphis Audio; Masque Sound, Sound Associates, PRG, and Firehouse Productions in the NYC area in late October; followed by Solotech and Omnison in early November; the Parsons Expo in Boston on November 11; December 8 at Moody Church in Chicago hosted by TC Furlong; 3G Productions at the Westin in Las Vegas on December 16 and open to all. More PM10 demo locations will be added soon.
The PM10 significantly increases the quality and versatility necessary in a live sound environment, and inherits features from the renowned PM Series Consoles. The unique Hybrid Mic Pre consisting of a newly developed Yamaha HA along with Rupert Neve Designs Silk and Transformer emulation, provides unprecedented control of pure nature sound blended with silky harmonic content typically only found in classic analog consoles. Evolved features and performance define yet another milestone for Yamaha sound reinforcement consoles. The PM10 system is comprised of the CS-R10 control surface, DSP-R10 DSP engine, RPio622 I/O rack, three types of RY cards, and two types of HY cards provide the flexibility to configure and ideally match the scale and functional requirements of any application.
A total of 45 plug-ins are available for creative processing, with substantially increased processing power. New and noteworthy are plug-ins created in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs, TC Electronic, and Eventide.
Collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs has resulted in the “Rupert EQ 773,” “Rupert Comp 754,” “Rupert EQ 810,” and “Rupert Comp 830,” all VCM models of Rupert Neve designed outboard devices from the 70s and 80s.
Connection to a computer for easy multi-track recording to Nuendo Live, connectivity to the NUAGE Advanced Production System, Yamaha CL and QL Series Consoles, as well as other external equipment is possible via a Dante network. Dante, designed for simple setup with an extremely wide range of professional audio devices, works ideally with TWINLANe to create an exceptionally flexible, reliable system overall.
