With the release of Yamaha’s new V4 firmware, the Rupert Neve Designs RMP-D8 Dante-connected microphone preamplifier and converter can now be natively controlled from Yamaha’s flagship RIVAGE PM series mixing consoles. This release will bring the new RIVAGE PM3 and PM5 as well as the PM7 and PM10 into the family of products that work with the RMP-D8. Native control from the Yamaha CL and QL series were implemented with a previous firmware release.
“Our partnership with Yamaha over the years has helped bring some of our innovative tools to the live sound market, including the Portico plugin series and the sound of our Silk circuitry,” says Josh Thomas, Rupert Neve Designs’ General Manager. “With this new firmware release, front of house engineers working on the RIVAGE PM series consoles will have the ability to seamlessly add Rupert Neve Designs’ classic mic preamps into the front end of their workflows. We are excited to be a part of this very important release for Yamaha’s flagship consoles.”
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. 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 and Sales Group. “This collaboration will allow an even wider array of customers and projects to step into the RIVAGE PM ecosystem.”
