L-Acoustics has announced that its L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology will be natively controllable via Yamaha Professional Audio’s entire lineup of RIVAGE PM digital mixing systems. (This includes the newly launched PM5 and PM3, thanks to a DeskLink co-developed by the two manufacturers.)
According to L-Acoustics, the RIVAGE PM firmware version 4.0 will be released simultaneously with the PM5 (CS-R5) and PM3 (CS-R3) hardware in the coming months. DeskLink enables Yamaha’s newest consoles to be fully capable of controlling L-ISA mixes, just like the company’s larger siblings, the flagship PM10 and PM7 mixing systems.
Within the RIVAGE PM desks, for every mono or stereo input channel, direct control of L-ISA Objects or Groups will be available on the console control surface and touch screens. The five main L-ISA parameters — Pan, Width, Distance, Elevation and Aux send — will also be stored for each object in the console Scenes, with dedicated recall scope.
