By PSW Staff • February 6, 2013 The Yamaha CL5 digital console In a move to provide live sound engineers with experience with the new CL digital console, Yamaha Commercial Audio has introduced a “test drive” campaign with participating Yamaha CL dealers. The company’s initial test drive campaign was first implemented more than 10 years ago. Beginning now through June 30, participating Yamaha CL dealers are offering a 72-hour CL test drive to live sound engineers free of charge (dealer may require deposit, shipping/delivery fees). The complete system includes a racked, 2RU Rio3224-D I/O, a 150-foot snake, and a road case. The system provides 72 inputs and 35 outputs. “We’ve been extremely successful with our Yamaha Commercial Audio Training Seminars (YCATS) for the CL console around North America, but wanted to provide sound engineers an opportunity for a real-world mix experience to hear the amazing sound quality of the new CL console,” states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems. “In this way, participating dealers who have accepted the ‘Test Drive’ challenge can offer the use of a CL console to engineers for a limited time without compromising their rental inventory.
