Firmware Version 4.0
Firmware version 4.0 for the entire RIVAGE PM series will be released simultaneously with the RIVAGE PM5 and PM3 hardware. Firmware version 4.0 provides a number of important user interface and function updates, including the addition of the premium SP2016 reverb plugin from Eventide. In addition to a large selection of top-quality presets, the SP2016 allows detailed editing for engineers who want to customize their sound.
Ray Maxwell, Eventide’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing comments: “The lush and distinct reverbs of the original Eventide SP2016 have been used in countless hit records for nearly 40 years. The original reverb can be heard on albums by Adele, Mariah Carey, Eminiem, and more. Eventide is honored to partner with Yamaha to bring the signature reverbs from the SP2016 (Room, Stereo Room and Hi-Density Plate) to the RIVAGE PM10 console with V4.0 software. Users will have a faithful recreation of the original rack processor using state of the art analog component modeling to capture the unique sound of this widely acclaimed reverb.”
With this update the RIVAGE PM series is now capable of controlling L-ISA systems from L-Acoustics. For every mono or stereo input channel, a direct control of L-ISA Objects or Groups will be available on the RIVAGE PM console control surface.
The RIVAGE PM5 and firmware version 4.0 are scheduled for release by summer this year. The RIVAGE PM3 will be ready by fall. Yamaha will continue to develop and add features to the RIVAGE PM series based on feedback from users in the field. We will also continue to work with third parties to add premium plugins like the Eventide SP2016 reverb included with this firmware release.
RIVAGE PM firmware V4.0 includes the following new features.
