Yamaha Commercial Audio and London’s SW19 Studios are joining forces in mid-March to host an exclusive, two-day Welcome to the World of RIVAGE event.
Taking place on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 March at SW19 Studios in Wimbledon, it comprises a free series of technical training seminars which offer professional and aspiring sound engineers an opportunity to get up close and personal with Yamaha’s RIVAGE PM7 and PM10 digital mixing systems.
Day 1 will focus on showcasing RIVAGE PM7 as the perfect solution for great, reliable sound for the live venue and festival engineers, sculpting exceptional audio for today’s touring bands. Yamaha Product Specialists and SW19 staff will be on hand to deliver an overview of the system, highlighting key features and demonstrating its applications in a high-quality rehearsal environment.
There will be plenty of time for hands-on exploration during the 90-minute sessions, which will help guests to feel confident navigating the console and taking advantage of the many features, networking with I/O and being ‘festival ready’ for when they find themselves behind a RIVAGE console this summer.
For those wanting extra information about the sound quality, a special ‘critical listening session’ will be set up in one of the studios, allowing guests to experience the full detail of the system pre-amps, including the Rupert Neve Designs SILK Red and Blue emulations.
Day 2 offers those with some experience of RIVAGE and/or those who want to delve deep into the system. Through a series of bookable one-on-one sessions, guests can book to spend time with a Yamaha Product specialist and a RIVAGE system. Content will be customised to the needs of the guest – everything from converting an existing show file through to specifying and setting up a complex system for an upcoming tour.
