Frankfurt, Germany (April 4, 2017)—Yamaha has announced several new components and a V1.5 firmware update for its RIVAGE PM10 Digital Mixing System at Pro Light + Sound (PL+S) 2017.
Approximately two-thirds the size of the existing CS-R10 surface, the new CS-R10-S control surface offers the same operability for applications in a smaller footprint. A Dual Console function (to be supported in a future update) will allow two CS-R10 and/or CS-R10-S control surfaces to be connected to a single DSP-R10 DSP engine; this allows separate CS-R10-S control surfaces can be used at both front of house and monitor mix positions. A CS-R10-S will also be able to be used as a sidecar for a CS-R10.
Meahwhile, the new HY256-TL-SMF is a TWINLANe card that supports single-mode optical fiber. The Yamaha TWINLANe audio network with up to a 400-channel capacity had previously only supported multi-mode fiber connections. The new HY256-TL-SMF expands system connection flexibility by additionally supporting single-mode fiber connections.
Yamaha’s V1.5 RIVAGE PM10 firmware update includes the Eventide “H3000 Live” Ultra-Harmonizer plug-in and Dan Dugan Sound Design automatic mixer plug-in. In addition to automixing, the Dugan plug-in suppresses feedback and comb filter effects, while processing can be divided into as many as five independent automixers. A new analog delay and other Yamaha plug-ins have been added in PM10 V1.5, too.
The Yamaha CS-R10-S, HY256-TL-SMF, and V1.5 firmware are scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2017.
