  • (1) x CTL-DM7 Control Expansion Controller
  • Items shipped independently


DM7 Compact Professional 72-Channel Single Bay Digital Mixing Console

The DM7 Compact is a Dante-equipped versatile digital mixing console with unparalleled sound quality, ease of operation, and high reliability that make it perfect for a wide range of applications. The DM7 is configured with 24 + 4 faders and 2 x 12-inch + 1 x 7-inch multi-touch screen.


Sound

Throughout Yamaha's long history of developing state-of-the-art digital mixers, there is one concept that we have consistently adhered too— the ideal starting point for sound creation is a totally natural, or “transparent” sound. This concept of natural sound is exemplified by the DM7 series high-end input section, producing a high-fidelity, uncolored sound that serves as the engineer's canvass to color, shape, and recreate, using the DM7 series built-in plug-ins, EQ, and dynamics. All in all, the DM7 series has evolved in every aspect to help engineers create their ideal sound.


  • Meticulously designed and constructed I/Os and 96 kHz sample rate
  • Newly added FET Limiter and Diode Bridge Compressor offer expanded dynamics control, while the new “History” function combines with the existing comps and gates
  • Dan Dugan automatic mixer with up to 64 channels in the channel strip as a standard feature. In cooperation with Dan Dugan Sound Design
  • VCM models of the renowned Portico 5033 equalizer and Portico 5043 compressor/limiter
  • FX RACK features high-quality multi-effects processors with forty-three types of high-grade effects including the newly equipped REV HD and REV R3


Operability

Yamaha digital mixers are known for offering a high level of operability that professional users demand, staying up to date with the constantly evolving state of the art. The M7CL offers analog-like operability; the CL series, a more refined operation with a brushed-up version of Centralogic; and the DM7 series puts an emphasis on intuitive operation and high efficiency via multiple displays and an advanced Selected Channel View.


  • Advanced graphical user interface is an audio engineer’s delight, offering the ultimate in touch operation convenience
  • Selected Channel View provides a list of operational information on the channel strip, retains the best aspects of previous GUI
  • Familiar touch screen operation that you use in your daily life is now available on your mixer
  • Large 2-bay DM7 with a DM7 control panel equipped with a physical controller to the rack-mountable DM7 Compact
  • 12-inch screen provides convenient operation that will allow you to focus more energy on sound creation, and includes the Selected Channel View
  • Selected Channel View and Overview from the RIVAGE PM series, but also features an updated, more intuitive operation
  • Features a multi-language option for individual channel names enabling more comfortable and intuitive operation


Design

Audio Engineers are far more than just concert staff doing “background work”. They may not be on stage, but they are an integral part of a live performance and require a high level of expertise, broad experience, and a sophisticated musicality that supports the artists' musical expression. Yamaha has been manufacturing musical instruments for over 130 years, and it is always a consideration during the design process to not only make a great sounding, eminently playable instrument, but also to focus on the form and aesthetic and how it will complement the artist playing it. In the DM7 series, we designed the consoles to be easy to operate so that mixing engineers can use them confidently and creatively even in challenging situations, while at the same time making them look sleek and attractive when they are being operated by the engineering artist helming them.


  • Strip lights illuminate fader surfaces to give engineers an advantage in darkened live venues
  • Inherits the smooth lines of the RIVAGE PM, CL, and QL consoles achieving a consistent design in terms of both operability and modeling
  • Buttons and knobs, functions, and graphics all adopt interface standards from other Yamaha series mixers for a familiar feel


Functionality

Engineers are required to deftly respond to the various demands of each artist and client on a daily basis to deliver the best sound possible to their audiences. Yamaha has enabled the DM7 series with cutting-edge technologies that allow engineers to focus on being creative in a limited time frame and establish a fast and efficient workflow without compromise.


  • Split Mode allows you to use one mixer as if it were two
  • Newly added “Assist”, is an efficient new feature that takes care of important, but more procedural tasks, allowing operators to hone their creative workflow
  • 144ch in/out via Dante, a combination of software, hardware and networking protocols which has become an industry standard
  • USB Type-C connector provides 18 in/out audio interface functions for recording, streaming, play back, connection to conferencing systems, and more
  • DAW Remote function allows operations such as volume control, playback, stop, and more, to be performed using physical controllers
  • Dual power supply units to reduce the risk of power loss resulting in downtime during a show


Expandability

Choosing and configuring an ideal system setup depends on the operator, the venue, and the type and magnitude of an event. The DM7 series allows users to tailor their system to their preferences and to streamline their workflow with compatible devices and dedicated software.


  • User Defined Keys/Knobs, Scene Memory, Monitor Control, and Panner can be accessed quickly and conveniently in a number of applications
