Platinum Sound - Yamaha Indonesia Aids Popular Bali Jazz Festival
Ubud has been a centre of the creative arts for many years. Coming to international attention in the 1930s, the town is still a centre of artistic excellence in Indonesia. First taking place in 2010, The Ubud Village Jazz Festival (UVJF) was founded by Balinese musician/composer Yuri Mahatma and promoter/recording studio owner Anom Darsana. It has quickly grown to attract high quality jazz performers from around the world.
UVJF operates very much as a community event, with the involvement and support of local artistic organisations, a mission to educate and cross-promotion with other Balinese festivals. This year the festival took place on 10th-11th August and featured performances by 24 jazz artists across three stages, including the winners of the Ubud International Jazz Day Youth Band competition, which took place in April. “Our aim is to put a smile on the faces of 5,000 people, irrespective of age, ability, creed or wealth,” says Yuri.
Yamaha Commercial Audio systems featured on all three of the festival’s stages. On the main (Giri) stage, the RIVAGE PM7 system with Rio3224-D2 I/O racks supplied by Yamaha Indonesia was used alongside a CL3 digital console for monitors, provided by Soundworks Jakarta, with three DBR12, two DSR112 and two DZR12 powered loudspeakers for artist monitoring.
Front of house Pongky Prasetyo and monitor engineer Rio Felani were very impressed, saying “RIVAGE PM7 is an excellent digital mixing system. It has great sound and the awesome features really spoil sound engineers who use it!”
The RIVAGE PM7 is a digital mixing system consisting of the CSD-R7 Digital Mixing Console, one or more I/O racks for input and output, and dedicated interface cards for network connectivity. The CSD-R7 is the same size as the our flagship RIVAGE PM10 system CS-R10 Control Surface and has the same control layout. With built-in DSP it offers similarly high standards of operation and workflow efficiency in a relatively compact, portable system.
Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles represent a new level of refinement. They offer an evolved experience in accessible mixing, plus sonic purity with sound shaping capabilities that will give the most imaginative engineer unprecedented creative freedom. The CL series embodies the leading standards in live sound in their most advanced, most expressive form.
QL series consoles offer all-in-one mixing, processing, and routing capability for small to medium scale live sound, corporate speech events, installations, and much more.
R Series (AD/DA): 2nd-generation
The second generation of R Series Dante-enabled I/O Racks (AD/DA) offers significant advances in sound, reliability, and visual status confirmation. Together with the CSD-R7 control surface, these I/O Racks are components of the RIVAGE PM7 Digital Mixing System. They can also be used with CL and QL series digital mixing consoles.
