Supporting The Professional Audio Community During The COVID-19 Pandemic

Every part of the professional audio industry is currently affected by the unprecedented challenges which everyone faces from COVID-19. Yamaha believes that the most important priority is to protect the health and safety of everyone within the industry. Yamaha is closely monitoring this fast-developing global situation and following all advice and guidelines issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and public authorities in each region.

The company has many important, long-term relationships throughout the industry, including partners, customers, many freelance technicians and clients, whose lives and livelihoods are being impacted by this unprecedented situation. Thoughts are with them all. Yamaha wants to support them as much as possible and contribute to helping the industry get through this difficult and complex time.

Since 1990, Yamaha has been proactive in developing and maintaining practical education programmes. These are designed to help users deliver better results in both live and installed audio, as well as achieving a more efficient workflow. Now consolidated under the ‘Audioversity’ banner to accelerate Yamaha's training initiatives, it is currently expanding its online education resources further. The online content will bring some benefit in these difficult times, helping viewers to be ready for when the industry is able to return to some sort of normality.

Current content includes:
