RIVAGE PM7 Tours The World With Belgian Tenor Helmut Lotti

'When we were planning the tour we felt it was better to have everyone on in-ear monitors. However, the number of stereo mixes needed was greater than the 32 busses of a CL5,' says Bart. 'I discussed this with Yamaha's Stef de Pooter and he told us about the RIVAGE PM7, which at that time was under NDA. We were immediately convinced about what it could do for us.

'I have always been a big fan of Yamaha consoles - we still have a PM3500 in the warehouse. With plenty of busses for the in-ear mixes, the Yamaha sound quality, ease of use and reliability, we knew that the RIVAGE PM7 was the console we needed.'

He continues, 'It is the ideal monitor console for this production, thanks to the large number of inputs, the amount of monitor sends and its seamless compatibility with Dante, our R-series I/O racks and CL5 at FoH. The onboard plugins are perfect for providing each performer with a very comfortable sound.'

As you would expect, Lotti is meticulous about the quality of his in-ear sound. But the RIVAGE PM7 has ensured he is happy at every show. 'He absolutely loves the sound,' says Bart. 'With a Yamaha console on monitors, he's always confident that it will sound like he wants it to, but the RIVAGE PM7 has raised the bar even higher.'
