PM5D / PM5D-RH Quick Start Guide Part 1
PM5D set up; a walk through guide.
These are a typical documents indicating a bands input and output needs for a large monitor system. The aim of this
guide is to work through the processes of setting up a PM5D for this show. Most of the techniques and ideas used will
apply equally for a FOH or broadcast set up.
PM5D rider speciﬁcations;
When specifying a PM5D console, we suggest you make it clear which model you prefer; PM5D (Manual Head Amp)
or PM5D-RH (Recallable Head Amp). Also specify you need the latest console ﬁ rmware, any MY cards, spare PSU,
desk lamps and mains power for your laptop to run Studio Manager. Always provide your own PCMCIA card for data
back up and loading and remember your USB cable for Studio Manager connection!
If you need more inputs than one PM5D can provide you can cascade link (bus link) multiple PM5Ds or from summer
2007, you can specify a DSP5D "console expander". These extra channels can be remotely located using a lightweight
cat-5 cable if you specify the DCU5D cable unit.
Other Yamaha speciﬁcations;
Did you know you can also specify Yamaha DME64N DSP engines for extra matrix options and extra graphic EQ
controlled from the PM5D or for speaker processing, format conversion and many other useful functions. Yamaha make
touring grade ampliﬁ ers and professional installation loudspeakers too; details from www.yamahaproaudio.com.
