A Yamaha PM5D-EX digital mixing system was used for monitors on all of the show dates. “We decided to purchase the PM5D-EX because we were happy with the functionality of the PM5D-RH, but were running into some problems on the amount of inputs we had,? states Viera, Jr. Anthony’s band consists of 16 regular band members with the addition of 10 string members for this tour.

“The PM5D-EX System using the Yamaha DSP5D Expander was a quick, affordable, and compact solution that provided more channels for use with the addition of the strings section.? The entire band was on IEM’s with the string section using wedges. Eric ‘Pyle’ Ramey mixes monitors for Marc Anthony.

Marc Anthony is currently in South America on the second leg of the tour.
