Red TX Standardises HARMAN Studer Consoles in OB Vans for 96kHz Format

Studer_RedTXLONDON, United Kingdom – A little over three years after commissioning its second mobile recording unit, with 3D and 7.1 surround sound, premier location recording company, Red TX has upgraded its original Red 1 OB to give it 96kHz capability. Both Red I and Red II are equipped with HARMAN Studer Vista 8 consoles, with 96 mic amp capacity as standard; but by streamlining their original recording truck, with a new Studer SCore Live engine and faster computer, the Beaconsfield-based facility is able to maintain its high profile live event, film and television recording facilities at the cutting edge.

Chief engineer, Ollie Nesham says the move was largely driven by customer demand and that both vehicles — while slightly different in wheelbase — are similarly configured and are now virtually interchangeable. “We were getting more call for projects in 96K,” he admits. “Every few years there is a call for a greater number of inputs. Ten years ago we could get everything, including audience mics, into 56 tracks; today there can be 100 mic amps and considerations such as 5.1 stems, Studer VistaMix etc, — and the desk couldn’t handle it, so we decided to act.”

He contacted Studer Technical Sales Manager, Europe, Simon Roome. “Although we are largely self-sufficient Studer are brilliant at support — they upgraded the computer in the desk and provided a new Core.”

Other than the overdub area (fitted on Red II) the two trucks are now operationally identical. “To have this flexibility and be able to build up 96K configs for both trucks is important to reflect changes in the industry.

“At festivals we are taking MADI and analogue of over 100 inputs in some cases, along with audience mics and comms; so having six MADI cards in each truck allows us to have three stage boxes on each truck, and record 192 tracks.”

With all microphone inputs now 24bit/96kHz with full DSP on every channel Red TX has already carried out a number of projects since the fit-out of its original vehicle, including Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) at Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, Red Bull Culture Clash and MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow.

Evolutionary Yamaha PM10 Launched Today

Yamaha RIVAGE PM10

Buena Park, Calif.—In a worldwide announcement made at Inter BEE today, Yamaha Corporation Japan has launched the RIVAGE PM10 Digital Mixing Console, an enormous, evolutionary step for Yamaha PM Series Digital Live Sound Consoles. More than ten years have passed since the Yamaha PM1D and PM5D defined the direction for the digital console market. The new flagship RIVAGE PM10 significantly increases the quality and versatility necessary in a live sound environment, and inherits features from the renowned PM Series Consoles. Evolved features and performance define yet another milestone for Yamaha sound reinforcement consoles. The PM10 system is comprised of the CS-R10 control surface, DSP-R10 DSP engine, RPio622 I/O rack, three types of RY cards, and two types of HY cards provide the flexibility to configure and ideally match the scale and functional requirements of any application.

“Our new flagship RIVAGE PM10 system is the result of more than 40 years of PM Series history and reinforces our passion to provide industry-leading commercial audio products,” states Laurence Italia, Vice President/General Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “RIVAGE PM10 will ignite the market for a new era of extraordinary sound, operation, and reliability. Needless to say, RIVAGE PM10 would not be possible without the dedication of the Yamaha Japan R&D team as well as feedback from our customers.”

Under the fundamental philosophy of Yamaha live sound consoles, Hybrid Microphone Preamplifiers have been newly-developed, as has the analog section both in terms of components and overall design, achieving an extraordinarily pure, natural sound. Impeccable models of the Rupert Neve Designs (RND) transformer circuitry and acclaimed SILK processing have been created utilizing Yamaha’s VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology. The SILK processing feature even includes selectable “RED” and “BLUE” characteristics, and a continuously variable “TEXTURE” knob that facilitate sonic shaping right at the input stage, adding musical sparkle or power as required. Josh Thomas, general manager of Rupert Neve Designs, had this to say about the collaboration: “We have done a number of listening sessions to compare our hardware to the transformer and Silk Texture emulations that Dr. K of Yamaha Japan and the development team achieved. Rupert and I are both very impressed by how closely the emulations get to the original analog designs. We hope that you all enjoy the rich Rupert Neve sound.”

The channel EQ and dynamics have been significantly upgraded with three newly developed algorithms plus the classic Yamaha “Legacy” algorithm. The new “Precise” algorithm includes Q parameters on the low and high shelving filters that allow filter overshoot to be flexibly controlled for added musical impact. An “Aggressive” algorithm has been designed for the most musical response, and the “Smooth” algorithm offers smooth, natural control while retaining the fundamental character of the source. Two Dynamics stages are provided, each functioning as a gate, compressor, ducker, or de-esser as required. Two compressor types are included: “Legacy Comp” features standard Yamaha digital console compressor characteristics, and “Comp260,” a VCM model of a popular analog comp/limiter from the mid-70s.

A total of 45 plug-ins are available for creative processing, with substantially increased processing power. New and noteworthy are plug-ins created in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs, TC Electronic, and Eventide.Collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs has resulted in the “Rupert EQ 773,” “Rupert Comp 754,” “Rupert EQ 810,” and “Rupert Comp 830,” all VCM models of Neve designed outboard devices from the 70s and 80s. All four models deliver the gloriously musical vintage outboard sound still favored by many discerning engineers. The alliance with TC Electronic has resulted in the inclusion of two new reverb plug-ins: the “VSS4HD” room simulation reverb that offers a multitude of reflection settings with musical-sounding reverb processing capabilities, and the “NON LIN2” plug-in that can function as an envelope-filtered gate reverb without requiring a trigger.

“I wish to congratulate Yamaha with raising the bar for live console design significantly,” states Thomas Lund, CTO of TC Electronic. By directly integrating the world’s finest EQ, dynamics and reverbs, this mixing system is truly outstanding. Therefore, a big congratulations to the users also.”

Cooperation with Eventide has produced the “H3000-LIVE” harmonizer, an accurate reproduction of the H3000 Ultra Harmonizer algorithm with an interface streamlined for live sound use. “The marriage of classic Eventide effects with the state-of-the-art Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 mixing system is a match made in heaven,” adds Ray Maxwell, Eventide vice president of sales and marketing.

Console operation has been given the utmost attention with the Yamaha-familiar Selected Channel section implemented in full, allowing all parameters of the selected channel to be directly and intuitively controlled. There are also two large LCD touch screens that provide logical continuity with the faders, offering the same operability as the highly regarded Centralogic™ interface in 12-channel groups. In addition to this dual interface hybrid operation style, horseshoe-ring encoder position indicators, refined panel layout, and several other details contribute to significantly improved overall operability.

New features extend the usefulness of the scene memory: “Isolate” enables the engineer to specify entire channel modules including EQ and dynamics libraries, etc., that will be protected from recall operations without altering the Recall Safe settings; significant for situations where scene memory is heavily used. The Overlay Filter can be “overlaid” on a current mix to apply temporary offsets to fader and mix/matrix send levels independently from Scene Recall – valuable in situations that require sudden changes and the ability to easily revert to the original settings.

The CS-R10 control surface and DSP-R10 DSP engine are connected via a dedicated CAT5e ring “Console Network.” The DSP engine connects to the RPio622 I/O racks via the newly developed TWINLANe ring network using multi-mode optical fiber. The fact that both networks use simple ring connections facilitates redundancy and the highest possible reliability. TWINLANe is an original Yamaha protocol that can handle up to 400 96kHz audio channels over distances of up to 300 meters with low latency and redundancy for high reliability. Up to two DSP-R10 DSP engines and eight RPio622 I/O racks can be connected in a single ring.

Connection to a computer for multi-track recording, connectivity to the NUAGE Advanced Production System, Yamaha CL and QL Series Consoles, as well as other external equipment is possible via a Dante network. Dante, designed for simple setup with an extremely wide range of professional audio devices, works ideally with TWINLANe to create an exceptionally flexible, reliable system overall.

RIVAGE PM10 has an expected delivery during 2015.
