Yamaha adds automixing to processor

AUTHOR: Inavate

Yamaha has announced new firmware and application software for its MTX Series matrix processors, which is part of the Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) range.

This now makes the MTX-5D compatible with the MY4-AEC echo cancelling and Dugan-MY16 auto microphone mixing interface cards. Designed specifically for the commercial installation market, the CIS series is a range of loudspeakers, multi-channel power amplifiers and the MTX matrix processors.
Previously available for use primarily with Yamaha's DME Series digital mixing engines, the Dugan-MY16 optimises the gain distribution of multiple faders simultaneously, allowing sound engineers to focus on their mix rather than being preoccupied with microphone levels. The MY4-AEC Echo Canceller eliminates unwanted acoustic echo caused by secondary signals of speaker output, or reflections from room surfaces, that are common in teleconferencing applications.
The updated MTX series software adds flexibility to the CIS range, because it allows users of the MTX5-D to add all the functionality of the Dugan-MY16 and MY4-AEC, while taking advantage of the excellent facilities to price ratio of the CIS series.
The new firmware for the MTX Series and Editor software will be released in the middle of January. It can be downloaded free of charge from the Yamaha web site.
