Yamaha announced that it will highlight its newest professional audio and live sound products, as well as the latest tools from Steinberg Media Technologies and loudspeakers from NEXO, both Yamaha companies, at next month’s Audio Engineering Society (AES) convention.
Attendees will experience demonstrations of the RIVAGE, CL and TF series of digital mixing consoles, the newly released STAGEPAS 1K portable PA system, the new point source NEXO P12/L15 loudspeaker system, DZR loudspeakers with expanded Dante audio networking connectivity, and the latest version of Steinberg’s Dorico 3 professional scoring software.
Firmware update V4.0 for Yamaha TF Series Digital Mixers adds enhanced control and versatility through a Selected Channel View providing access to main parameters for selected input channels in a single display. A new scene fade time function for scene management is useful for engineers mixing in theatrical applications.
Support for Yamaha DZR-D and DXS-XLF-D Series speakers is added with speaker amp mute control directly from the mixer display. V4.0 expands the selection of QuickPro Presets for microphones, in-ear monitors and speakers and the TF StageMix iPad app allows control of playback and recording through a connected USB storage device.
Steinberg recently announced the highly anticipated latest version of its professional scoring software, Dorico 3. Every feature in the new version helps musicians spend less time in front of their computers and more time making music.
Also planned for the Yamaha AES exhibit are new audio interface products and the newest WaveLab mastering, editing, and refinement tools.
The Yamaha STAGEPAS 1K system an all-in-one portable PA system enabling performers to quickly transform any location into a stage. The system is driven by a high-frequency array speaker packed with 10 small-diameter 1.5-inch drivers that provide professional-level accuracy and clarity. A 1000 W Class-D amplifier gives the system a significant upgrade in power. A new 12-inch subwoofer houses the sizable speaker and improves portability with its streamlined construction and reduced weight.
