Rivage Plugs Into Waves — AudioTechnology
Yamaha RIVAGE PM series consoles now support Waves plugins with the newly released HY slot card compatible with SoundGrid servers.
Together with a SoundGrid DSP server, a Mac or PC, and authorised Waves plugins, the new WSG-HY128 card allows processing of up to 128 channels of audio using Waves’ award-winning reverbs, equalisers, compressors, limiters, delays and more, with nearly no latency. Additional SoundGrid I/O devices can also be assigned to your network.
The WSG-HY128 card uses the Waves SoundGrid protocol to connect all I/O devices with the DSP server and the host computer. Multiple console synchronisation and digital splits are supported using clock Sync over Ethernet (SoE).
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of Sales & Marketing, comments, “Waves is excited to support Yamaha’s RIVAGE PM Series Consoles with our new Waves WSG-HY128 card. This card will allow engineers using the RIVAGE PM Series to maximise their workflow and creativity, by providing them access to Waves’ plethora of diverse plugins and, expand their IO count with extremely low latency – all via Waves’ SoundGrid technology.”
Motome Tanaka, Yamaha Group Manager of the PA Marketing & Sales Group, comments, “Yamaha mixers have always been designed to transparently deliver on-stage sound to engineers, allowing them to build their own sound from the best possible source audio. The RIVAGE PM Series has stayed faithful to that ideal. Plugins play a vital role in building any sound, and previously Yamaha worked very closely with Waves Audio to bring SoundGrid to its digital mixers equipped with MY card slots. With the new WSG-HY128 card for the RIVAGE PM Series, Yamaha is very pleased to have again closely collaborated with Waves to bring the rich and enticing world of SoundGrid enabled plugins to its flagship digital mixing systems.”
