Yamaha Indonesia launches the Rivage PM7

Yamaha Indonesia recently staged a launch event for the new Rivage PM7 digital mixing system. The manufacturer’s Indonesian arm was confident that the console would impress, having embarked upon a pre-launch tour in which the PM7 was put to the test at the International Kampoeng Jazz Festival in Bandung, the Bali Blues Festival, a Glenn Fredly concert and the annual Surabaya Music and Multimedia Expo (SMEX).

‘As soon as the Rivage PM7 system was delivered, we headed straight out on the “test drive” tour,’ remarked Chihaya Hirai, senior general manager at Yamaha Music Indonesia. ‘Even under the boiling sun in Bali, it did a great job without any problems whatsoever. Throughout the tour, engineers had no trouble operating it, even though they had never seen it before. The tour proved that the Rivage PM7 is an exceptionally reliable system, both in terms of its durability and ease of operation.’

DSS Sound System was the rental company supplying the gear for the Glenn Fredly gig and the International Kampoeng Jazz Festival. ‘Over these two events it quickly became obvious that the features, premium plug-ins and the 96kHz sampling rate of Rivage PM7 mean that it easily satisfies the needs of sound engineers,’ commented DSS owner Donny Hardono.

The console was used at FOH for Glenn Fredly’s show by Eddy Jacobus, who stated: ‘The sound is great, very natural and the workflow is identical to Rivage PM10. I especially like the emulations of the Rupert Neve Sound Designs processors, which are a great shortcut to a really good sound.’

Meanwhile, audio engineer Irham Bilal was behind the desk at the jazz festival. ‘I was very pleased to experience Rivage PM7,’ he said. ‘The plug-ins are remarkable, overall I thought it was fantastic.’

Visitors to the SMEX expo were offered the chance to get hands-on with the mixer during four days of demonstrations before the PM7 joined a Yamaha CL5 at FOH of the Bali Blues Festival. ‘The sound is great and I was really impressed by the number of plug-in options that can be used on every channel,’ said Agus Bim, a sound engineer at the festival.

The launch event was held in Jakarta and attended by 80 audio professionals from rental companies, broadcasters, houses of worship and reseller and distribution companies. ‘The Rivage PM7 also received a very enthusiastic welcome and many enquiries at the official launch event,’ said Mr Hirai. ‘We are certain that it will be chosen for many Indonesian concerts and other live events in the near future.’
