Yamaha launches MMP1 studio monitor management system

The heart of the MMP1 is a 40 x 36 Monitor Matrix.

Yamaha’s Professional Audio division has announced the international release of the MMP1 studio monitor management system.

The new product come with audio routing capabilities and DSP features that are ideally suited to configuring and monitoring environments from stereo up to complex immersive audio configurations.

Monitoring is a vital element in the production environment as it directly affects the quality of the final product. The advent of immersive audio formats has raised the bar higher than ever, increasing the need for precise sound field reproduction. “While the migration to efficient DAW-based in-the-box production systems are gaining traction, the Yamaha MMP1 easily accommodates up-to-date management methods with precision and accuracy,” says the firm.

The heart of the MMP1 is a 40 x 36 Monitor Matrix to monitor source mixing that supports formats from Stereo to Immersive audio, including Dolby Atmos, Auro3D and NHK 22.2.

Also, eight cue outputs and 2 talkback systems between the control room and booth allow easy communication between multiple artists and directors. Additional features such as cough mute, cough mute override, and studio speaker auto-mute are also provided, enabling microphones to be muted from external controllers via GPI and GPO, with current status monitoring available via the MMP1 Editor software or iPad App.

“The Yamaha MMP1 offers production facilities the high quality monitoring control solution in a streamlined design with stunning audio quality needed to deliver great mixes, no matter the format.” stated Nithin Cherian, PA product marketing manager, Professional Audio division, Yamaha Corporation of America.

The Yamaha MMP1 includes eight channel strips that support a wide range of applications. Each is equipped with four selectable EQ types: Precise, Aggressive, Smooth, and Legacy offering a comprehensive range of response shaping options, plus a number of analog vintage effects modelled at the component level using acclaimed Yamaha VCM (Virtual Circuit Modelling) offering professional grade processing accuracy.

In addition to the 8 analog and 16 AES/EBU (via 25-pin D-Sub) inputs and outputs, the MMP1 also features 64 channels of Dante I/O audio networking capabilities. The new unit also brings together high performance AD/DA converters that support sampling rates of up to 192 kHz, a sonic design that realises the quality and accuracy production engineers demand. It also provides advanced audio networking for extended system scalability.   

The Yamaha MMP1 is scheduled for release in November 2017.
