PogoArt’s history with Yamaha goes back 20 years, when the company invested in the 02R console. Since then the company has regularly updated its inventory of Yamaha digital mixers and currently has PM5D, CL5, CL3, QL5, QL1, M7CL, 01v96 and DM2000 consoles in continual use by clients. The latest investment in a RIVAGE PM7 system brings the inventory right up to date.
“One of the great thing about Yamaha consoles for rental companies is that, from the 01v right through the range, they all have a very similar workflow,” says PogoArt owner Slawek Pogorzala. “This means that we know engineers will immediately be able to use the PM7, without a significant learning curve.”
Supplied by Yamaha dealer M.Ostrwoski, another advantage of the RIVAGE PM7 system is that it is fully compatible with the company’s inventory of Yamaha Rio3224-D I/O units and the company’s CL and QL series consoles.
“We know that the RIVAGE PM7 system will be extremely reliable, have great hardware and be fully accepted on technical riders. Yamaha is a brand trusted by users, which is also very important,” says Slawek. “Another essential factor in our decision to continue investing in Yamaha consoles is the excellent support we receive from them and M.Ostrowski.”
The first event for the RIVAGE PM7 will be an outdoor production of the opera Nabucco for a 5000-strong audience, after which it is likely to spend most of the summer on outdoor events.
“We work on a wide range of productions throughout the year and, in conjunction with our inventory of NEXO loudspeakers, the PM7 will be used on everything from large open air festivals in summer to smaller indoor corporate events during the winter,” Slawek concludes.
The RIVAGE PM7 is a digital mixing system consisting of the CSD-R7 Digital Mixing Console, one or more I/O racks for input and output, and dedicated interface cards for network connectivity. The CSD-R7 is the same size as the our flagship RIVAGE PM10 system CS-R10 Control Surface and has the same control layout. With built-in DSP it offers similarly high standards of operation and workflow efficiency in a relatively compact, portable system.
R Series (AD/DA)
R Series I/O racks employ Dante network audio protocol for exceptional flexibility and freedom in setup and placement, while delivering natural, musical sound that brings out the full sonic potential of mixing consoles and other system components.
Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles represent a new level of refinement. They offer an evolved experience in accessible mixing, plus sonic purity with sound shaping capabilities that will give the most imaginative engineer unprecedented creative freedom. The CL series embodies the leading standards in live sound in their most advanced, most expressive form.
QL series consoles offer all-in-one mixing, processing, and routing capability for small to medium scale live sound, corporate speech events, installations, and much more.
A powerful choice for medium to large-scale live sound, the PM5D is available as a stand-alone console, or as the double-capacity PM5D-EX system featuring the console plus a DSP5D Digital Mixing System.
An innovative Centralogic™ control interface makes these digital live-sound consoles as intuitive to use as analog consoles.
The first digital mixer in the world to receive official THX pm3 approval for surround sound production. Version 2 includes a number of refinements, including built-in Add-on effects.
The successor to the 02R, the de facto standard for production consoles, now comes with VCM and other plug-in effects as standard.
