RIVAGE PM Series
Perfecting the Art of Live Sound
All art, including art that involves sound and music, is expression that has an impact on the viewer or listener. It often begins with the artist’s personal journey of self-discovery that sometimes grows and ripples outward in waves that resonate with people everywhere.
Yamaha supports the engineers who support artists and performers in their quest to make waves, carrying their vision to a wider audience.
An All-embracing Ecosystem
The RIVAGE PM series includes five consoles, two DSP engines, two I/O rack units, and two network protocols. Any of these components can be combined to create systems that match a wide range of application scale and budget requirements.
All five consoles 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.
* The RIVAGE PM7 (CSD-R7) features integrated DSP processing.
To fully support the sound engineers who support the artists and performers, Yamaha makes absolutely no compromises when it comes to quality. Sound, operability, and reliability must all be first class, and implemented in a way that allows engineers to concentrate fully on helping artists and performers deliver their message. The RIVAGE PM series embodies this ideal at the highest level, connecting technology, art, and audiences with waves that encircle the world.

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.
RIVAGE PM5 Mixing System packs undiluted RIVAGE PM power and performance into a lightweight, intuitive console that is surprisingly slim. The addition of a third display screen has made it possible to offer a more touch-centric interface in a compact, significantly lighter console that is easier to transport, setup, and operate in a wide range of venues.
The colors and finishes shown may vary from those on the actual products.
