Yamaha consoles deliver sound for 27th ASEAN Summit Gala dinner

World and ASEAN leaders dined together on November 21, 2015 as part of the ASEAN Summit Gala Dinner held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Audio for the event was provided by a system designed by Absolute Technical Solutions which included Yamaha products.

The requirements for the event meant that the audio system had to be failure-proof and had to deliver on audio quality and clarity. Absolute Technical Solutions chose five Yamaha CL5 and four QL series consoles to meet these requirements. In addition seven Yamaha Rio3224-D and one Rio1608-D i/o units were also used. The Dante network system was connected using Yamaha SWX2200-8G gigabyte switches.

Sound was delivered by a combination of Nexo PS15 and Yamaha DSR112 speakers, which served as the main system. Yamaha DSR112 speakers were also deployed as stage monitors for the dancers and choir, while an Aviom system of wireless in-ear monitors was provided for the performers and musicians.

At the event itself FoH sound was mixed on two QL5s and a CL5, monitors were mixed on two CL5s and a QL5, while the broadcast mix was done on two CL5s and a QL5.

Both the Yamaha consoles can operate with full redundancy. The inbuilt Premium Rack processing and Dan Dugan Automatic Mixer were also essential tools for the event. Simon Khoo from Absolute Technical Solutions said: “The flexibility of the Dante network, virtual soundcheck and easy Gain Compensation capabilities also reinforced our decision to choosing Yamaha consoles.”
