Yamaha offers tuition on their digital desks 07/06/10
Here's what Yamaha have to say...
The UK summer festival season is nearly upon us and, as always, there will be literally hundreds of Yamaha digital mixing consoles on duty in fields, parks and old airfields up and down the country. To ensure as many visiting band engineers as possible are up to speed with Yamaha technology, the company is running a series of technical training sessions in early June.
Taking place from 8th - 10th June inclusive, the sessions are being held at Yamaha Commercial Audio UK's headquarters in Milton Keynes.
With the facilities being located close to the centre of the UK, the sessions will be as accessible as possible for all attendees, as well as having Yamaha's state-of-the-art resources and technical support team on hand.
"The sessions are aimed at experienced audio engineers and console 'baby sitters' who will appreciate a chance to brush up their knowledge of the Yamaha PM5D, M7CL and LS9 ahead of the UK festival season," says Naomi Wilkinson, Yamaha Commercial Audio UK's sales and marketing co-ordinator.
"With the high numbers of Yamaha digital consoles in use, we hope these sessions will make band sets and changeovers as easy and problem-free as possible for the many engineers who will be using them."
The sessions will comprise a detailed seminar, presented by Yamaha digital systems manager Nick Pemberton, followed by the opportunity to ask detailed questions. PM5D, M7CL and LS9 desks will all be set up for hands-on training, with Yamaha experts on hand to offer advice and address any practical problems. Topics to be covered will include:
Saving and loading
Scene recall, storage, recall safing
Using Yamaha Studio Manager software offline and online, transferring guest engineer files live
Wired and wireless control via PC and Mac, using VNC and remote desktop control
Interfacing to other parts of the audio system using various digital protocols
Pricing and Availability:
The sessions are free of charge with a limited number of places. At this late stage you will need to check with Yamaha to see if there are any places left.
