The ideal starting point for creative audio engineering is transparent, uncolored sound. All Yamaha mixers are built on that philosophy, with the goal of allowing engineers to capture the on-stage sound accurately, without coloration, and then add creative touches as required. The merits of Yamaha’s unwavering adherence to this concept are evident throughout the RIVAGE PM series.

The foundation is Hybrid Microphone Preamplifiers with analog input stages that take the Yamaha “natural sound” concept to new heights, as well as digital sections with immaculate VCM-technology models of Rupert Neve Designs transformer and SILK processing circuitry that offer outstanding musicality and atmosphere. Add the latest refinements in channel EQ and dynamics, and you have extraordinary creative scope.

The built-in plug-ins that support creative sound engineering have also evolved, many through close alliances with other manufacturers that are leaders in their respective fields. Collaboration with RND (Rupert Neve Designs) and the use of Yamaha VCM technology has resulted in flawless recreations of prized equalizers and compressors from the 70s and 80s. There are also impeccable models of Eventide harmonizer and reverb effects that could only have been created through cooperation with the original manufacturer.

All of this has been implemented in the RIVAGE PM series to give engineers the tools they need to deliver the highest quality, most musical sound possible.


Two Types of I/O

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series

Input circuitry and processing are critical to achieving a high level of sonic quality. The output end of the signal chain plays an important role in maintaining that quality too. Yamaha offers two types of high-performance I/O Rack units for RIVAGE PM system input and output, each providing compatibility with a different audio network.

One of those networks is TWINLANe, capable of carrying up to 400 audio channels via optical cable. The RPio622 and RPio222 I/O racks are TWINLANe devices, as are the HY256-TL and HY256-TL-SMF audio interface cards. The RPio622 and RPio222 I/O racks include Hybrid Microphone Preamplifiers with high-performance analog input stages, plus advanced digital sections that include accurate emulations of Rupert Neve Designs transformer and SILK processing circuitry.

Audinate Dante network compatibility, a standard feature in many other Yamaha consoles and pro audio products, is also available. The Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 I/O Racks and the HY144-D audio interface card are Dante ready, and can be combined to provide natural sound input with any RIVAGE PM series system. Either network solution is capable of capturing the sound being created on stage, without coloration and with every nuance intact, allowing the engineer to use the creative capabilities of the RIVAGE PM series to reach the audience with maximum impact.


Channel EQ and Compression Refined to Unprecedented Levels

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series The RIVAGE PM channel EQ and dynamics have also been significantly updated and fine-tuned to match the innovations in the input section. The input channels feature 4-band full parametric EQ, while the output channels are equipped with 8-band full parametric EQ, with 4 algorithm types that include newly developed variations. The “Precise” algorithm makes it easy to target and control specific EQ points, the “Aggressive” algorithm is designed for the most musical response, and the “Smooth” algorithm offers smooth, natural control. There’s also a “Legacy” algorithm that provides the familiar feel and response of the equalizers provided in industry-standard Yamaha digital consoles such as the PM1D and PM5D. The “Precise” algorithm includes Q parameters on the low and high shelving filters that allow filter overshoot to be flexibly controlled for added musical impact. Two dynamics stages are provided, each functioning as a gate, two types of compressor, ducker, or de-esser as required. The two compressor types are “Legacy Comp,” inheriting the characteristics of the standard compressors in Yamaha digital consoles, and “Comp260,” which is a beautiful VCM model of a popular analog comp/limiter from the mid 70s. The latter accurately models the characteristics of the VCA circuit and RMS level detector used in the original device, with the effect of each parameter fine-tuned for optimum effect in live-sound applications. Presets that recreate the original fixed settings of this classic comp/limiter are also provided for convenience in situations that require the original sound.


An Extraordinary Selection of Plug-ins

Processing quality has always been a major strength of Yamaha digital consoles. The RIVAGE PM series offers a comprehensive selection of plug-ins, including models of in-demand classics. The RIVAGE PM series includes over 50 plug-ins, and ample processing power allows up to 256* instances of complex plug-ins such as the Portico 5033 or Portico 5043 to be used simultaneously. There are also the Eventide H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer and a new SP2016 reverb with a large selection of presets, Dan Dugan automatic microphone mixing, and more. These contributions from distinguished third parties complement a range of original Yamaha plug-ins, adding extraordinary versatility and processing power that give the engineer wide-ranging creative freedom.

Bricasti Reverb

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series

Bricasti Design is known for being the world’s premier manufacturer of hand crafted, hardware digital reverbs.

The Y7 is specifically designed for use in the Yamaha RIVAGE PM mixing systems, bringing to the live market a Bricasti product, one that is intergraded in the console for simple, fast, and familiar operation, and to bring the renown “Bricasti Sound” to users of the Yamaha products.


RND Portico Plug-ins

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series

Although the SILK processing simulation created in cooperation with RND is an important part of the RIVAGE PM system, it is by no means the only product of that fruitful relationship. In addition to the well-known and highly acclaimed Portico 5033 EQ and 5043 compressor, RIVAGE PM systems include the easy-operation Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5045 Primary Source Enhancer that effectively suppresses background noise at microphone inputs for enhanced clarity while significantly increasing the feedback margin, making it a valuable tool for live sound in houses of worship, stadiums, halls, and other environments where feedback can be problem.

Added with V5.0, Portico II Master Buss Processor is a creative tool that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel compression and limiting. From mixing bass-heavy EDM to a delicate master of a chamber ensemble, it has something to offer everyone – no matter the use or genre.


Dan Dugan Automatic Mixer

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series Through in-depth collaboration with Dan Dugan Sound Design, renowned Dan Dugan automatic microphone mixing with its advanced algorithms is built into the RIVAGE PM series digital mixing systems. Setup is easy: just insert the processor into up to 64 channels for automatically optimized microphone gain distribution. Gain control is smooth and natural, as though experienced human operators were doing the mix. The system also effectively reduces feedback and comb filter issues. For speech applications, especially non-scripted situations, this allows the operator to concentrate on details other than fader operation for consistently highquality mixes.


Eventide Effects

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series The Eventide name is legendary in the effects field. The acclaimed H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer and a new SP2016 Reverb plugin added in version 4.0 are available throughout the RIVAGE PM series. In addition to a full range of parameters that can be edited to precisely tailor the effects for any need, the SP2016 features a large selection of presets that make it quick and easy to call up an ideal reverb sound.


Yamaha DaNSe Noise Suppression

Yamaha RIVAGE PM Series The RIVAGE PM series includes a range of original Yamaha plug-ins that are extremely powerful too, including the DaNSe Noise Suppressor. The “DaNSe” plugin analyzes noise frequency characteristics and employs a learn function to automatically achieve the most effective noise suppression without the need for any complex setup or programming by the user. Effective noise suppression can be a huge advantage for plays and musicals, significantly enhancing audio clarity. DaNSe can suppress air conditioning noise and noise produced by cooling fans in on-stage moving lights. It can reduce monitor bleed to on-stage instrument mics, and suppress crowd noise during announcements and sports events. It is a highly effective and widely applicable noise suppression tool.
