Flexible Control

In addition to basic AND/OR logic components, the DME7 is equipped with a wide range of control components such as compare and delay. Combining these features with faders and buttons allows for flexible and complex control of audio equipment. The DME7 also offers extensive, flexible controllability. It can be controlled from ProVisionaire Control and supports control protocols like DCP (Digital Control Panel), GPI, MIDI, and OSC.

USB Audio Interface

The type-C USB to host port on the rear of the product functions as a 96-kHz-compatible 8-channel audio interface. You can use it as an audio input to check your audio system via computer or other device, or to audition internal configurations.

SD memory card slot

The SD card slot on the front panel allows you to transfer project files and save and export device log files. You can also play MP3 and WAV files stored on the card, and use it to play prerecorded announcements or chimes.

Informative LCD display

The LCD display on the front panel provides access to a variety of information. Detailed error logs and other details can be displayed, and QR code links to manuals are also displayed, making it easy to monitor and troubleshoot a situation.

Super Quiet – NC 20

Yamaha Signal Processor DME7: Super Quiet - NC 20

Low noise design that does not disturb performance.

It can be placed within audiences as well as in the equipment room.


Presets can be created for linked/grouped devices in addition to individual devices, providing broader flexibility when setting up presets for different applications.



Devices can be assigned to groups, allowing various types of control to be applied to the group as a whole. For example, preset recall, overall mute, synchronization, and more can be assigned to entire groups for efficient operation and management.


ProVisionaire Design is a powerful tool for sound engineers and systems integrators. Not only does it allow detailed control of a comprehensive range of amplifier and speaker parameters, but individual channels can be linked/grouped as required, and related EQ, delay, and other parameters can be linked as well. All of this can contribute to efficient design and setup of finely tuned systems.


– Audio routing for logic control setups created offline can be checked and tested without the need to actually have any devices connected.


– Two probe monitoring points can be defined.

– The signals from the two probe monitor points can be assigned to different output channels and monitored independently.

– Advanced applications of two probe monitor points to check the correlation between the processor input signal and direct microphone signal.


– After offline checks have been carried out using the Offline Simulation and Probe Monitoring functions described above, all that remains to be done to complete the setup is to load the data into the device, significantly reducing setup time.

– The entire system can be placed online at once, or devices can be placed online individually and tested one at a time.


Control configuration

By using control components, you can recall parameters in sequence based on simple logic principles governed by statements such as AND, OR, COMPARE. It can be used to describe a wide range of complex relationships in a process by wiring control component and audio component. The logic function enables more complex control designs that go beyond just GPI control, allowing us to meet the detailed requirements of our users.

Audio configuration

ProVisionaire Design supports high-performance audio and live performance system design for a large number of audio components. In systems based around the DME7 or MRX7-D, it allows the device’s components to be freely and flexibly laid out, and internal parameters to be easily adjusted to achieve the required sonic results. Available components range from basic essentials such as Combiner, Delay, Dynamics, Effect, EQ, Filter, Meter, Matrix Mixer, Router, Source Selector, and Speaker Processor to more high-level functions such as Comp260, DCA, Dugan Automixer, REV-X and more.
