Yamaha Rivage PM7 Digital Mixing System Yamaha Corporation has introduced the Rivage PM7 digital mixing system. The CSD-R7 digital mixing console is the central component of the Rivage PM7 system, along with the Dante-based Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 I/O racks and TWINLANe-based RPio622 and RPio222 I/O racks. The Rivage PM7 system is positioned directly below the current Rivage PM10 digital mixing system in the Yamaha lineup. The CSD-R7 is the same size as the CS-R10 control surface, but with the DSP engine built into the console so it offers enhanced portability and system flexibility while maintaining high operability. The dimensions and panel layout of the PM7 are the same as the flagship Rivage PM10. The Rivage PM7 has 120 input channels, 60 mix buses, 24 matrices, and a comprehensive selection of 48 plug-ins. A Dual Console function also allows the CSD-R7 to be connected to one of the Rivage PM10 system control surfaces (CS-R10 or CS-R10-S). The CSD-R7 offers connectivity with two types of audio networks, allowing either or both to be used for connection to I/O rack units.

Sonnox Vox Doubler Plug-In Sonnox has released the VoxDoubler, the first plug-in from a new range called Toolbox. The Toolbox range has been conceived to solve univer- sally complex and time-consuming problems that affect beginners and audio professionals alike. The VoxDoubler is comprised of two separate plug-ins called Widen and Thicken, which are specifically engineered to help with the two most common vocal doubling work- flows. The VoxDoubler is designed to provide ease of use, real-time processing, and a lifelike sound as if the doubled parts were actually multi-tracked. The Widen plug-in generates two new mono voices and pans them to the left and right of the original vocal. The Thicken plug-in generates a new stereo doubled voice and overlaps it with the original vocal. For more information, contact Sonnox: sales@sonnox.com, www.sonnox.com. PROFESSIONAL SOUND 45
