Yamaha has launched its redeveloped ProVisionaire suite of system design, control and management software, allowing fully customisable configuration and operation of complex audio systems, alongside the new DME7 Digital Signal Processor.

The ProVisionaire platform has been redeveloped with three core applications supporting the user’s workflow – ProVisionaire Design for system design, ProVisionaire Control for system operation and ProVisionaire Cloud for system management. DME7 is an open architecture-type 96kHz digital signal processor, with support for up to 256 input/output channels.

Yamaha ProVisionaire/DME7 Digital Signal ProcessorEqually suited to the entertainment and ProAV, ProVisionaire software supports creation of complex, fully-scalable audio systems using a single software suite. It is designed to be operated very easily via tablet, laptop or desktop computer. This flexibility has been improved by ProVisionaire’s reincarnation as an integrated suite of software products for the design, operation and management of entire Yamaha and Nexo audio systems, comprising mixers, I/O, amplifiers and processors. Set up and control of a range of third-party products is also supported.

For the entertainment sector, this high level customisability suits use in theatre and live music, reducing on-site set-up and checking time.

For ProAV applications, system design can be tailored for permanent installations, for example in corporate, educational, hospitality and retail facilities, sports and theatre infrastructure. Bespoke control panels can be created to customers’ needs, while flexible components like acoustic echo cancelling (AEC) and Dan Dugan automixing are included, allowing systems can be controlled by staff with little or no audio experience. An offline simulation function lets users check system operation offline and probe component at any point in the DSP chain to shorten the time needed for on-site installation.

ProVisionaire Design is a Windows-based system design application and supports a wide range of Yamaha products, including the DME7, MTX5-D and MTX3 processors, PC-D series and XMV series amplifiers, DZR series loudspeakers, R-series, Tio and EXio I/O units, as well as Unified Communications products. It supports logic control, allowing control sequences to be assembled.

The parameters of systems created in ProVisionaire Design are assigned to the ProVisionaire Control application, which provides unified remote control and monitoring through custom-designed panels. Design time for these can be reduced by using stylish user interface templates, available for download from the Yamaha website.

A broad range of devices is supported by the control application, including DME7, MTX and MRX processors, CL, QL and TF digital mixers, R-series I/O units, XMV, PC-D and Nexo power amplifiers, as well as Unified Communications products. Panels created with ProVisionaire Control can be output to the ProVisionaire Control Kiosk (Windows) and ProVisionaire Touch Kiosk (iPad) applications for dedicated operation. This prevents users from making unintentional changes to control panels.

System management is provided by Yamaha’s new cloud service, ProVisionaire Cloud. Initially, this will manage additional functionality licences for Yamaha audio equipment, such as the DME7, with activation and deactivation of licenses allowing for efficient management of assets. Further services using the ProVisionaire Cloud infrastructure are in development.*

Yamaha’s new hardware DME7 digital signal processor is fully-compatible with the ProVisionaire platform and features 96 kHz audio quality plus up to 256 channels of input/output.

The DME7 provides 64 channels of Dante I/O and matrix mixer as standard, with further channels added via three additional 64-channel licences, activated through ProVisionaire Cloud. These offer the ability for 128x128, 192x192 or 256x256 channels of Dante I/O and matrix mixer to be handled by a single DME7. Additional licences can be activated on a permanent or temporary basis.

A wide range of DSP components is included as standard. These can be freely selected, connected and configured for extremely flexible system construction. These, along with 96kHz audio quality, support for GPI input/output, Logic control, OSC and other protocols, as well as ProVisionaire Design/Control and optional controllers, the DME7 is suitable for the widest range of installed and temporary audio systems, from entertainment applications and sports facilities to retail complexes, office buildings and education.

‘For many years, Yamaha has been an industry leader in the development of audio processors, mixers and a variety of other hardware products which harness its expertise in sound and music,’ says Thomas Hemery, Pro Audio Division General Manager of Marketing & Sales. ‘More recently, our software products have made setup and control of compatible products much easier, allowing complex systems to be operated very simply.

‘With the redeveloped ProVisionaire software family and advanced DME7 Digital Signal Processor, we are taking audio system design and control to a new level. Now we can offer set-up and control solutions for much bigger, more versatile projects, where things like voice lift for audio conferencing, multi-zoned BGM, live entertainment and other non-permanent event systems can all be part of the same network, with every element working to its maximum flexibility, but all with simple, straightforward control.’

The revamped ProVisionaire software suite and DME7 Digital Signal Processor will be available from Spring 2023.
