Yamaha Launches the DM7 Range of Digital Consoles

The culmination of decades of development experience, the new Yamaha DM7 series takes the best elements of previous digital mixing systems and combines them with innovative new features in a compact, powerful, ergonomic, flexible and expandable package.

Comprising two consoles and a control expansion unit,  plus additional software packages, the DM7 series is designed to deliver exceptional results with enhanced workflow for live music, corporate events, theatre, broadcast, streaming and hybrid mixing, where one console is used to independently mix more than one feed.

DM7 and DM7 Compact

An expandable, all-in-one digital mixer with a wide range of inputs and outputs, there are two models in the DM7 series. The DM7 features 32 inputs, 16 outputs and can process 120 input channels in a footprint measuring 793 mm x 564 mm, while the DM7 Compact has 16 inputs, 16 outputs and can process 72 input channels in a 468 mm x 564 mm footprint. Both models feature up to 144 in/out Dante networking at 96kHz, along with 48 mix, 12 matrix and two stereo busses. They can be used with the optional Yamaha R Series I/O Racks and a variety of Dante devices for extremely scalable, flexible audio systems.

DM7 Control

Either console can be expanded with DM7 Control, to create the DM7-EX (or DM7-EX Compact) system. This unit adds more physical controls and is bundled with Broadcast and Theatre software packages. Combined with enhanced performance and new features, the DM7 series is extremely flexible, adapting to the size and style of application, as well as the workflow of the engineer.

Functionality

A major new feature of the DM7 series is Split Mode, which allows the input channels, scenes and mix busses to be divided, letting one DM7 or DM7 Compact function like two separate mixers. Using one console, users can mix Front of House and monitors, FoH and broadcast or streaming, etc. without compromise.

Onboard Dante networking supports up to 144 channels of input and output and can be connected to the devices from a wide range of manufacturers, for flexible and highly scalable audio systems. Head amp remote and device control are also supported, making it easy to patch and control Dante equipment from the console. The DM7 series also features a rear panel USB-C port with 18 input/output audio interface functionality for recording, distribution, playback and connection to conferencing systems, as well as control via MIDI devices and DAWs.

“Complimenting the existing flagship RIVAGE PM and the trusted CL and QL series consoles, the DM7 series provides users with a powerful option to begin their Yamaha journey or expand their Yamaha fleet,” says Thomas Hemery, Yamaha General Manager of Global Marketing and Sales, Professional Solutions Division.

“With expected future firmware updates, similar to the significant new RIVAGE PM feature launching soon, the DM7 series will continue to evolve for many years to come.”
