By PSW Staff • April 4, 2017 The Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 Now celebrating its 30th anniversary of digital mixer technology, Yamaha has announced new components and V1.5 firmware update that will further enhance the versatility and performance of the RIVAGE PM10 digital mixing system. The announcement was made at Pro Light + Sound 2017. The new CS-R10-S control surface is approximately two-thirds the size of the existing CS-R10, and offers the same operability for applications where space is limited. 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 so that 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. The 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 RIVAGE PM10 firmware update V1.5 includes an Eventide H3000 Live Ultra-Harmonizer plugin and Dan Dugan Sound Design automatic mixer plugin. “We are priviledged to offer the H3000 Live to our PM10 customers that will provide them wiith even more control and sonic flexibility,” states Marc Lopez, director of marketing, Commercial Audio products, Yamaha Professional Audio. “And, by adding the automatic mixer plugin from Dan Dugan Sound Design that provides automatic gain adjustment of up to 64 speech microphones in real time, was a natural progression of our long-standing relationship with Dan Dugan.” The Dugan plugin also suppresses feedback and comb filter effects, freeing the engineer from the need to keep track of numerous faders in challenging unscripted speech situations, numerous Speech System channels, and five groups so processing can be divided into as many as five independent automixers. A new analog delay and other Yamaha plugins have been added in PM10 V1.5 expanding the variety of sound-shaping tools for mix engineers. The Yamaha CS-R10-S, HY256-TL-SMF, and V1.5 firmware are scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2017.
