A N ew Di me n si o n In Digi t al Live S o u nd
A lot has changed in the past few years – with more than a little help from Yamaha. Where analog
consoles were the only accepted means of handling serious sound reinforcement applications,
high-performance digital consoles such as the Yamaha PM1D now share the limelight with their
analog brothers such as the PM4000, and more recently the PM5000. Digital consoles are
accepted particularly in applications where programmability and recall capability are proving to
be of monumental importance. As a small indication of just how much things have changed in the
world of professional sound reinforcement, there are more than 400 PM1Ds in use in prestigious
halls, broadcast studios, and touring companies around the world (as of March 2004). The
accolades keep coming in for other Yamaha digital consoles, too. The fact that the DM2000 digital
production console has received both the coveted TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) award
and the MIPA (Musikmesse International Press Award) for "best sound reinforcement console"
indicates how much people have come to embrace the benefits of digital technology.
The PM5D and PM5D-RH Digital Mixing Consoles now take the digital revolution to the
next level. They are smaller relatives of PM1D, offering state-of-the-art digital
performance for a significantly broader range of SR applications that
require a more dedicated surface than the DM2000. What's
more, they offer a system solution that can enhance the
entire sound production process from input to
output through integration with digital systems such as
the DME64N and AD8HR.
PM5D - a new dimension in the digital live sound has begun.
