A renaissance in audio from the Yamaha Pro Studio

The Yamaha Music Centre continues to diversify with the inception of Sri Lanka’s foremost studio and a cutting-edge recording complex - the Yamaha Pro Studio. The studio is situated on the first floor of the Yamaha Music Centre’s flagship store in Colombo, adding a much needed experiential component to the wide and versatile range of professional audio equipment, musical instruments and accessories available. This allows patrons to audition their favourite equipment at the state-of-the-art facility, interact with the latest technology and even learn how to operate and master any equipment purchased, at no extra cost, with the assistance of an experienced in-house audio engineer.

The studio complex, which was in the making for some time, was launched in March this year; affording professional devotees, as well as enthusiastic beginners in music, a chance to interact with the store’s impressive portfolio of products in a live setting. The Pro Studio is ideally an essential facility, providing a significant difference when auditioning equipment and is fundamental for anyone deliberating the significance of sound quality and fidelity.

The studio with its wide open, spacious design and impressive interior allows for hands-on interaction when auditioning any of the available products. It is also the only studio of its kind in Sri Lanka where instruments and live music can be tested, offering a remarkable improvement over a typically digitalised source.

The impressive range of audio equipment available includes professional speakers like Yamaha, Electro-Voice, and FBT; which is, in turn, complemented by an array of best-in-class digital mixers including the Yamaha TF Series, Yamaha QL Series and Yamaha CL Series as well as renowned analog mixers such as the Yamaha MG Series and Yamaha MGP Series.

Apart from the chance to own some of the worlds-best audio gear, customers now receive the added benefit of comprehensive training at the Yamaha Pro Studio, with free lessons for anyone who purchases a Yamaha mixer.

This also includes the benefit of workshops and seminars conducted by industry specialists and audio experts. Customers are able to participate in these special initiatives available at any time, even years after the purchase of a mixing console.

All training sessions include personalised, in-depth lessons from a professional sound engineer. There are also a host of recent arrivals which can be tested at the Pro Studio. This includes Yamaha Studio Monitors, Yamaha PX Series, XMV Series Amplifiers, Steinberg Audio Interfaces and Cubase Software, Focusrite Audio Interfaces and Novation Midi Controllers, to name just a few.

In addition, recording artistes can benefit from two types of recording possibilities, with recording via DAW (Audio interface and PC) and recording through a top of the line Digital mixer (Yamaha CL-5).
