Yamaha’s MMP1 Studio Monitor Management System provides system management for DAW-based production environments in one versatile and cost-effective unit.

Yamaha’s MMP1 Studio Monitor Management SystemThe adoption of immersive audio formats has increased the requirement for precise soundfield reproduction in postproduction facilities, while making the requirements for monitor control and management more complex. The MMP1 adapts to the diversity and complexity of monitor and communication needs, in a unit that combines its purpose as a monitor controller with a package of essential functions for in-the-box mixing workflows.

Enclosed in a single 2U-high, 19-inch rackmount unit, the space-saving MMP1 features a 40 x 36 channel matrix, for monitor source mixing that supports formats from stereo to immersive audio, including Dolby Atmos. Eight stereo cues and flexible talkback allow easy communication between multiple artists and directors.

The monitor matrix is followed by a 32 x 32 speaker management matrix with crossover filters for bass management on all channels, allowing freedom for speaker layout than providing a limited selection of preset patterns. Precision FIR bass management filters are provided in addition to IIR types, making it possible to maintain flat phase characteristics between channels for optimum sonic clarity and imaging. Time alignment delay and EQ are included too, for comprehensive speaker output control. In addition to eight analogue and sixteen AES/EBU inputs and outputs, built-in Dante audio networking provides extra I/O expansion and system scalability.

Eight channel strips are included, each with four selectable EQ types (Precise, Aggressive, Smooth and Legacy) that offer a comprehensive range of response shaping options, plus a number of analogue vintage effects modelled at component level using acclaimed Yamaha VCM technology. Artists in the booth can be provided with a separate cough mute controller connected to the MMP1 GPI interface. Cough mute status is visible via MMP1 Editor in the control room.

The MMP1 is very easy to set up and operate via two software applications. MMP1 Editor for Windows and Mac computers (downloadable from the Yamaha Pro Audio web site) provides all-function access for everything from system design and file management to day-to-day operation. The MMP1 Controller app for iPad, available from the Apple App Store, provides convenient, intuitive control of essential parameters, including all the facilities on the MMP1’s eight channel strips. These include trim, delay, phase invert, filter, EQ, Comp260 VCM compression and insert facilities, meaning the need for outboard processors and complex internal DAW routing is minimised.

With eight high-performance analogue input and output connections, 16 channels of AES I/O, integrated Dante audio networking capability and a 16-pin GPI interface that can communicate with a variety of external devices, the MMP1 is an extremely versatile unit. Redundant power supplies provide failsafe reliability and it can contribute to enhanced efficiency and operability in broadcast facilities and a wide spectrum of other applications.

The MMP1 is scheduled for release in Q4 2017.
