As Mike Case, head of Yamaha Commercial Audio, explained: "We are delighted that Orbital are utilising the latest version of PM1D software for the system used in the production of FACE. Following the experience gained in the recent RSC's The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe many of the suggestions made by both sound designer, Scott Myers, and Orbital have been incorporated in this latest up-grade of software which includes parameter recall safe mode (allowing isolation of channel functions from scene automation). It is a credit to everybody involved, especially to the software engineers, that we have delivered exactly what our customer required, in a matter of months."

London-based Orbital Sound has now added Yamaha's PM1D mixing console into its extensive hire stock, making it available for tours, conferences and one-night events alike. Complementing their existing portfolio of high-spec equipment, the PM1D is available for hire following its recent ground-breaking debut at Sadlers Wells for the RSC production of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. As a theatre specialist, Orbital has worked closely with the Yamaha R&D teams both in the UK and Japan to initiate certain software developments to enhance the PM1D's performance as front-of-house workhorse, making it even faster to programme and providing greater control from its up-graded version 1.2 software.
