Buena Park, CA (May 2, 2012)—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems has debuted its MY8-Lake processing card, designed exclusively for Yamaha digital products.
The card adds Lake technology to PM5D, PM5D-RH, M7CL, LS9, DM2000, DM1000, 02R96 and 01V96 digital consoles, as well as DSP5D expander, DME24N/64N processors and TXn power amplifiers.
Included are Lake processing features such as Mesa EQ, Ideal Graphic EQ, Linear-Phase Crossover and other sonic tuning elements found in the DSP expansion card. The processing power of the card offers up to eight inputs/eight outputs in Mesa mode (system EQ), four inputs/12 outputs in Contour mode (crossover) or combinations of the above to suit the application.
I/O configuration via the console's insert points and the card's AES/EBU connectors, along with the ability to run at 96, 88.2, 48, or 44.1 kHz, reportedly helps to integrate Lake Processing into any live-sound system. Multiple cards can be utilized in Yamaha products that support multiple card slots.
Lake Controller software installed on a compatible Windows PC allows control of the MY8-Lake as well as other Lake devices in the system, while compatibility with Rational Acoustics Smaart sound-system measurement software contributes speaker system tuning. Over 1,000 speaker presets are accessible.
