Can PM5D meet the spec? Use DSP5D for more input channels.
In PM5D or PM5D-RH there are;
64 MIX channels made up of 48 fully featured mono and 8 stereo inputs.
24 MIX buses with EQ and comp to cover auxiliary send and audio sub groups.
STEREO out bus with A and B channels.
8 MATRIX outputs and the stereo MONITOR / CUE bus.
Also there are 8 multi-effects engines and 12 ways of graphic EQ.
If you need more inputs you can bus link or "cascade" more PM5Ds!! The DSP5D rack mount "console expander"
works in a similar way but takes up less space! Both will double the available input count and add another 8 way
matrix, 8 effects engines and 12 graphic EQs.
If you need more than 24 MIX groups and 8 MATRIX buses then we recommend the Yamaha PM1D mixing system.
PM1D has 48 MIX buses and 24 MATRIX buses.
PM5D and PM5D-RH can both have expanded input counts by using the DSP5D rack mount option. The DSP5D can
be easily remote located using the DCU5D cascade cable converter.
Preparing the console before you start.
First make sure the last users of the console have backed up any data in the console they wish to keep.
Next check the console software version; DISPLAY ACCESS > UTILITY > PREFERENCE 2. The software version is
shown here; we always recommend the latest software version for maximum reliability and best features. Find the latest
versions from www.yamahaproaudio.com/downloads/ﬁ rm_soft/index.html Update if necessary, following instructions
from the website with the software. You will need a PCMCIA card.
If the software is current then initialize the console; this deletes all user memories and returns the set-up to the factory
To initialize the console; power up the
PM5D whilst holding down the [STORE] key.
Follow the on screen instructions to complete
the initialization. The power switch is on the
PW800W 19" rack mount PSU.
