A lot has changed in the past few years ??with more than a little help from Yamaha
. Where analog consoles were the only accepted means of handling serious sound reinforcement applications, high-performance digital consoles such as the Yamaha
PM1D now share the limelight with their analog brothers such as the Yamaha
/pm4000' style='color:blue ; ' title='PM4000'>PM4000, and more recently the PM5000
Digital consoles are accepted particularly in applications where programmability and recall capability are proving to be of monumental importance. As a small indication of just how much things have changed in the world of professional sound reinforcement, there are more than 400 PM1Ds in use in prestigious halls, broadcast studios, and touring comPani
es around the world (as of March 2004). The accolades keep coming in for other Yamaha
digital consoles, too. The fact that the Yamaha
/dm2000' style='color:blue ; ' title='DM2000'>DM2000 digital production console has received both the coveted TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) award and the MIPA (Musikmesse International Press Award) for ??best sound reinforcement console ??indicates how much people have come to embrace the benefits of digital technology.
The PM5D series Digital Mixing Consoles and PM5D-RH Digital Mixing Consoles now take the digital revolution to the next level. They are smaller relatives of PM1D, offering state-of-the-art digital performance for a significantly broader range of SR applications that require a more dedicated control surface than the Yamaha

PM5D - a new dimension in digital live sound has begun.

Used Audio Mixers
Audio mixers, or sound consoles, are electronic sound mixing boards used to combine two or more audio signals, before directing them to the output channels connected to the device.
Sound consoles do a great deal more than just combining different audio signals â?? they allow users to optimize the sound output in a number of ways â?? adjusting various sound levels, enhancing sound with special effects and equalization etc, allowing for unmatched control over the end product.
When there is a need for high quality sound control and output, audio mixers are an essential item for audio team. Mixing desks are used on stage in live concerts to combine the sound input from various musical instruments in to a stereo master mix. For TV and movie studios, sound consoles are essential to combine the various sounds from the numerous different microphones that will be used.
Audio mixers are available in a wide range of different shapes, sizes and designs, beginning with smaller units designed for portability, right up to the enormous sound consoles used in recording studios. The term audio mixer actually refers to any kind of sound mixing board, whereas a sound console is usually a device which sits permanently on a desk.
Technicians usually differentiate audio mixers according to how many channels they have. Fairly standard in the recording industry is the 12-channel mixer, in which you can hook up a total of 12 input sources. Sound consoles can also be more specified â?? for example, a 24 x 4 x 2 mixer has 24 inputs, 4 sub-group channels and 2 output channels.
