Yamaha RIVAGE PM10: Collaboration History with Rupert Neve Designs


hi Josh atashi so thanks for coming Yamaha to attend the final recent session of transform our immersion silk on pm10 thank you for having me how about the inversion of his house it was very favorable I have to say that I was extremely impressed with the silk emulation especially the transformer are you able to capture the response curves it’s identical to that that we have on our a portico to line weight thank you very much for the doors so today we would like to review the history between us collaboration of Roberta Nemo design and the Yamaha to have great sounds and technologies pau amma’s digital consoles many years ago we Emma Chima visited memory to meet you and to meet Rupert yes maybe you remember that yes it was many years ago that our collaboration started you came and talked initially about emulating our 50:33 five band EQ and our 5043 compressor you also had a number of design philosophy conversations with Rupert about the classics from the early 70s as well as what we’re doing today at Rupert Neve designs yes we talked a lot firstly we talked our intention to invite the 70 G Q Rupert’s classic series and we talked the 70d Q but made has a very special overstress on frequency magnitude response and this is very beautiful it’s what has become the hallmark of Roberto’s designs now yeah and that was a requirement from the situation they are having in UK in those days like 60s and 70s everything mixture so they have to in the mix distractions yes yeah what one of the requests that came to Rupert early off was to be able to take a set of tracks that had already been recorded and lift out just the guitar without adversely affecting any of the other instruments or the vocalists and it was from this request that Rupert’s classic EQ curves kind of came to be stow same curves that we use today so the other results report 70d Q has a very beautiful overshoot there then this is a very big point still you regarding the design give that kind of the chapters on the modern age protocol and the protocol to range where itís also the you have our intention to have feedback compression yes what one of the things from Rupert’s classic dynamics designs was the ability to do feedback compression so it’s not as quick as the modern feed-forward style but it’s one of the elements along with the Transformers that gives it that full rich sound that Rupert’s designs have been known for since that time right then we generated these kind of nature’s of the Europe hoarding products into the software then we realized the software on the co console first so the how were the impression of the disk kind of a ratio Corgi yes we were very impressed because there are a lot of complex things happening I know you spend a lot of time and a lot of processing power went into the transformer emulation and we had heard some pretty good EQ emulations from from various people but we had never heard a compressor especially a compressor with a feedback type emulation that was done that really sounded like the hardware and you were able to accomplish that and that’s that’s one of the things that really impressed Rupert and I and knew that we want Yamaha was the right partner for us to work with on these things great
