While many digital "simulations" of classic analog circuits and effects merely scratch the surface, Yamaha's ADD-ON EFFECTS offer realism that extends to every sonic nuance and detail. These valuable signal-processing plug-ins owe their awesome processing power to the 96-kHz audio DSP capabilities of Yamaha digital mixing consoles, and can be used with DM/0 series digital mixing consoles as well as the PM5D. When used with Studio Manager V2 software, the Add-On Effects provide an efficient, intuitive graphical interface that makes operation a simple pleasure.
Yamaha ADD-ON EFFECTS are based on innovative Virtual Circuit Modeling technology that, rather than simply attempting to approach the desired sound using conventional digital audio methods, actually models the original analog circuitry — right down to the last resistor and capacitor. Also available is a package of spatial effects that deliver unprecedented control for spatial surround processing using innovative Yamaha iSSP (Interactive Spatial Sound Processing) technology. The Add-On Effects are capable of capturing subtleties that simple digital simulations cannot even approach, in effect going beyond simple simulation and delivering the truly musical performance that makes classic analog gear valuable assets even in today's digital production environment.
The three effects in this package take full advantage of Yamaha's remarkable iSSP (Interactive Spatial Sound Processing) technology to deliver precisely-controllable spatial processing capabilities that are particularly suited to cinema or television sound post-production and mixing facilities. All effects are applicable to a range of surround formats, providing unprecedented precision in matching visual motion with sound, and vast creative control for the creation of fantastic sonic environments. The Surround Post Package effects are compatible with DM2000VCM(V2), DM1000V2 and 02R96V2 Yamaha Digital mixing Consoles, and can be controlled directly from the console's joystick.
Room ER is capable of simulating the acoustic properties of a room of about 30 meters in length, with accurate reproduction of the direct sound and early reflections as affected by distance from the source, source motion, speed of motion, and room surface characteristics. This effect is ideal for placing a mono source in a precisely controllable surround environment.
Perhaps the most common example of the Doppler effect is the change in pitch of an ambulance siren as it moves toward and then away from the listener. Auto Doppler effectively simulates this effect in a wide variety of scenarios. In addition to objects moving linearly past the listener, Auto Doppler can recreate the effect of objects moving toward and then away from the listener, for example, with precise speed and distance control. Timecode automation is also possible.
The Field Rotation effect can be used to rotate or distort the sound field around the listener. The listener can be at the center of rotation, or the listener can be rotated or moved around a sound source. The axis of rotation, amount of movement, distance from the center of rotation, and speed of motion can be specified and controlled manually via a joystick like the one provided on the DM2000 console, or automated as required.
