The Rivage PM3 has a simpler single-display interface with 24 User Defined Keys to facilitate access and speed up operation. You still get full Rivage PM sonic quality, a full set of features, and 38 physical faders for intuitive hands-on mixing.
Rivage PM products ensure transparent uncolored sound in Hybrid Microphone Preamplifiers with analog input stages, digital sections with immaculate VCM-technology models of Rupert Neve Designs transformer and SILK processing circuitry that offer outstanding musicality and atmosphere. Add the latest refinements in channel EQ and dynamics, and you have extraordinary creative scope.
Yamaha offers two types of high-performance I/O Rack units for Rivage PM system input and output, each providing compatibility with a different audio network. One of those networks is TWINLANe, capable of carrying up to 400 audio channels via optical cable. Audinate Dante network compatibility, a standard feature in many other Yamaha consoles and pro audio products, is also available.
The Rivage PM channel EQ and dynamics have also been significantly updated and fine-tuned to match the innovations in the input section. The input channels feature 4-band full parametric EQ, while the output channels are equipped with 8-band full parametric EQ, with 4 algorithm types that include newly developed variations.
All five consoles in the Rivage PM series feature a similar interface with up to three bays of 12 faders each, touch-sensitive display panels, and the Yamaha Selected Channel Section. Engineers who are familiar with one RIVAGE PM console can easily switch to any other and be up and running in a matter of minutes. All Rivage PM system components are compatible, and components from earlier systems will work in combination with later systems. That goes for I/O racks as well as DSP engines, so in addition to operating them separately you can combine DSP engines in mirrored configurations for large applications, for example.
