PM5D V2 Firmware V2.05 (Previous version)

PM5DV2/ DSP5D Compatibility (Win)

Use the Editor software only with a supported firmware version.

  • PM5DV2 user data is compatible with later firmware versions, but not with lower firmware versions. Cross-platform compatibility is provided for setup data which is directly saved to a compact flash memory via the PM5DV2, or saved as a ".PM5" file using the Editor application.

Note for Cascade Connection Mode

  • Be sure that the same firmware version is installed on all PM5DV2 units when you use more than two PM5DV2 units in cascade connection mode.
  • Be sure to install the latest versions when you use the PM5DV2 and DSP5D in cascade connection mode.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

Major new functionality in PM5D firmware V2.05

Basic functionality and panel operations

  • 1. You can now control the DSP5D from the PM5D's panel.
  • 2. On/off operations of the channel selected in the FADER MODE section can now be operated from the DCA [MUTE] key.
  • 3. Even if the FADER [FLIP] key is on, you can now use the encoders to control the panning of the signal sent to the MIX buses, the head amp gain, or the attenuator.
  • 4. If there is no vacant library number when you store the selected scene as NEW, it will now be impossible to save the scene; this prevents an existing library item from being overwritten.
  • 5. As parameters that can be operated in the screen, MONITOR LEVEL and CUE LEVEL have been added. You can now assign these to the faders of the DCA strip so that the monitor or cue levels can be adjusted.

EFFECT functions

  • 1. Add-On Effects (COMP276/276S, COMP260/260S, EQ601, OPEN DECK) and DE-ESSER have been added.
  • 2. A DSP CONFIGURATION option has been added to the EFFECT ASSIGN screen and to the GEQ function GEQ ASSIGN screen, allowing internal effects 1-8 to be used as graphic EQ or parametric EQ.
  • 3. When the panel [SEL] key is pressed in the EFFECT PARAM screen, or when a [SEL] key is turned on via a linking setting, the effect module inserted in that channel will automatically be selected.
  • 4. If you've used the tap tempo function to specify the tempo in the EFFECT PARAM screen and then edited the DELAY parameter, the tempo will now stay unchanged.

GEQ functions

  • 1. Options have been added to the GEQ PARAM screen, allowing you to switch a graphic EQ to a parametric EQ.
  • 2. Not only when the panel [SEL] key is pressed in the GEQ PARAM screen but also when a [SEL] key is turned on via a linking setting, the GEQ module inserted in that channel will automatically be selected.
  • 3. When you insert a GEQ in the GEQ PARAM screen, insert-in will automatically be turned on for that channel, and will be automatically turned off when you remove the GEQ.

SCENE functions

  • 1. In the SCENE screen, you can now specify "read-only" scenes that will not be overwritten when you load scenes from a memory card.
  • 2. In the SCENE screen, a DELAY field has been added, allowing you to specify the timing of the program change or MIDI events that are transmitted when the scene is recalled.
  • 3. In the SELECTIVE RECALL screen and the RECALL SAFE screen, the ON parameter has been added as a channel parameter that can be included in or excluded from recall operations.
  • 4. In the SELECTIVE RECALL screen and RECALL SAFE screen, separately from the conventional Recall Safe functionality, an OUTPUT ISOLATION field has been added, so that output channels and parameters to be excluded from recall operations can be stored in SETUP memory (which is not affected by memory card load operations).

SYS/W.CLOCK functions

  • 1. In the MIXER SETUP screen, a VIRTUAL SOUNDCHECK button has been added, allowing you to temporarily change the input patching for a rehearsal.
  • 2. In the OUTPUT ATT PORT screen, a Φ (phase) button has been added, allowing you to switch the phase between normal and reverse for each output channel or I/O channel output port.

GEQ functions

  • 1. In the PREFERENCE 1 screen, a DCA MUTE TARGET option has been added, allowing you to specify that the DCA [MUTE] key will mute the send to the MIX bus.
  • 2. In the PREFERENCE 1 screen, an ATT OPERATION ON PANEL option has been added, allowing you to prevent the panel encoders from operating the attenuators.
  • 3. In the PREFERENCE 1 screen, a MIX SEL/ENCODER MODE LINK option has been added, allowing you to link selection of MIX channels with selection of MIX SEND SELECT keys.
  • 4. In the USER DEFINE screen, functions such as DSP5D CONTROL and ENCODER MODE KEY have been added to the functions that can be assigned to user-defined keys.
  • 5. In the FADER ASSIGN screen, options have been added, allowing you to use the STEREO/DCA strip section to control the monitor/cue level and on/off status.
  • 6. In the FADER ASSIGN screen, you can now assign the desired channels of the DSP5D as well.
  • 7. In the SECURITY screen, a LOAD LOCK function has been added, allowing you to disable loading for each type of file.
  • 8. In the SECURITY screen, a RECALL LOCK option has been added, allowing you to lock parameters so that they will not be changed when a scene or library is recalled.

Input/output functions

  • 1. In the OUTPUT PATCH function OUTPUT PATCH screen, you can now change the patching of output channels to MIX OUT jacks 1-24.
  • 2. In the OUTPUT PATCH function INSERT POINT screen and the INPUT PATCH function INSERT/DIRECT OUT POINT screen, a SET ALL button and CLEAR ALL button have been added, allowing you to turn all channels on/off in a single operation.
  • 3. In the INPUT VIEW function CH JOB screen, channel settings can now be moved as well as copied.
  • 4. In the INPUT PATCH function INSERT/DIRECT OUT POINT screen, PRE ATT has been added as a direct output transmit location.
  • 5. In the PAN/ROUTING function MIX SEND VIEW screen, the send position (PRE/POST) of the signal sent to the MIX bus is now indicated by the color of the bar graph.
  • 6. You can now set a Q of up to 16 for the parametric EQ in the input channels, output channels, and GEQ modules.
  • 7. You can now set a threshold level of down to -72 dB for an input channel GATE.
