Yamaha Ships IM8 Consoles
The eight-bus IM8 series includes the same build and testing procedures as the PM series mixing consoles and will be available in three models with 24 (IM8-24), 32 (IM8-32) and 40 (IM8-40) channels, respectively.
All mono input channels feature both balanced XLR and TRS phone jacks, with individually switchable +48v phantom power, 26-dB pad switch, gain control, pan pot and four-band EQ with sweepable mids. Each mono input channel also includes a polarity switch and 80 Hz high-pass filter switch. Four stereo input channels provide L and R phone jack inputs, phono jack stereo pairs, input gain control, balance control and four-band EQ.
All inputs feature eight individual AUX send controls that can be switched in pairs for pre-fader or post-fader operation, and can be set pre- or post-EQ via internal jumpers. The noiseless faders are 100mm long to allow for greater control over the levels. A master section is designed to provide extensive signal routing and control versatility, while an output matrix affords extra output flexibility, particularly for installations. In addition to offering direct outs on all mono channels, the boards include a USB port to accommodate direct digital recording and playback with the supplied Cubase AI4 audio workstation software.
