Wimberley, TX (June 17, 2020)—While Yamaha’s Rivage console line awaits the release of its new PM3 and PM5 digital mixing systems this summer, users who are already on a Rivage desk like the PM10 or PM7 can look forward to the release of new V4 firmware, which will unify features across all the new and legacy consoles. The update will also bring with it the ability for all Rivage desks to natively control Rupert Neve Designs RMP-D8 mic preamp/converters.
They’re not the first Yamaha consoles to sport this feature; native control from the Yamaha CL and QL series were implemented with a previous firmware release. Control of the eight mic preamps on the Dante-enabled RMP-D8 can now be accessed directly from the head amp control of a compatible Yamaha console. This includes Gain, +48V, Pad, Polarity and HPF, and these settings are all fully recallable via Yamaha console scene memory.
“Yamaha is delighted to have been able to integrate control of the RMP-D8 into the newly expanded RIVAGE PM family of consoles as part of our recent launch of the new PM5 and PM3 console systems together with the release of our V4.0 firmware,” says Motome Tanaka, Yamaha Group Manager, Marketing & Sales Group. “This collaboration will allow an even wider array of customers and projects to step into the RIVAGE PM ecosystem.”
