OUR PART # AE051-CA
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 Surround post package takes full advantage of Yamaha’s iSSP (The Vintage Stomp Pack utilizes VCM (Virtual Circuit Modeling) Technology to emulate a number of vintage guitar stomp box effects that are highly valued for their rich, warm sound.
Born in the late '70's, this phaser is still available in reissue form. There are many who believe the original '70's models sounded better than the current models, and so the K's Lab team have painstakingly modeled the original circuit and components. Even the original light-sensitive CdS cell that was used for modulation has been modeled so the subtle change in modulation character with modulation speed of the original is recreated in perfect detail.
Like the MAX100, there are many guitarists who will go to any lengths to get an original version of this stomp box to enhance their sound. This is a faithful reproduction of the original with dual phaser circuits and dual LFOs that can be configured to deliver a dazzling array of effects. Special care has been taken in modeling the effect of the CdS cell in the phase-shifting circuit so that the exquisite balance at all modulation speeds that was a major part of the sound of the original has been retained.
Rather than a simulation of a specific phaser, this model has been designed to deliver the best qualities of the most sought-after classic phasers in one versatile effect. Different mode settings transform this effect into dramatically different phaser types. Stereo and mono versions are provided.
