RIVAGE PM Firmware V2.02

Important Notice

With CL/QL series V4.50 and RIVAGE PM series V2.02, we found that Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) V4.0.3.1 or later cannot be recognized as a "SUPPORTED DEVICE" on these consoles. In order to work around this for the time being, we recommend to follow the operation rules below.

Temporary Operations

  • Use earlier versions of DVS than V4.0.3.1.
  • When using V4.0.3.1 or a later version of DVS, mount DVS as an UNSUPPORTED DEVICE, and make the Dante patches from the console or Dante Controller.

Use this file to update RIVAGE PM to V2.02.
Please read the following instructions carefully before updating.

RIVAGE PM Firmware / Editor Compatibility

Please make sure to match all versions of CS-R10, CS-R10-S, CSD-R7, DSP-R10, RPio622, RPio222, and RIVAGE PM Editor when you operate the RIVAGE PM system. Using an unsupported Editor/firmware combination may result in unexpected behavior.
When updating, a TWINLANe network card (HY256-TL, HY256-TL-SMF) must be installed into each rack device in order to update them simultaneously. If any additional TWINLANe network cards are installed after performing the update, please execute the update program again.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

New features in V2.02

  • Added the DSP Mirroring function that allows continuous operation with another DSP engine even if the DSP engine stopped due to a failure.
  • Added the Dual Console function that enables you to connect two control surfaces to one DSP engine.
  • Up to two instances of the RIVAGE PM Editor can be connected to each DSP engine.
  • Now supports remote control via the RIVAGE PM StageMix. Up to two instances of RIVAGE PM StageMix can be connected to each Control Surface/Console.
  • Up to four sets of DSP-R10 or four CSD-R7 can be connected to each I/O Network.
  • Inserting a TWINLANe network card to the HY SLOT2 of the DSP-R10 allows configuration for the SUB I/O Network.
  • Now supports Dante network remote control via the HY144-D card inserted to the HY SLOT3 of DSP-R10 or HY SLOT2 of CSD-R7.
  • Now supports 5.1-channel surround pan/surround monitor.
  • The Mix Minus option is now available for buses.
  • SLOT BRIDGE has been added to the Port to Port function, which enables you to patch sounds across SLOTs.
  • Enabled control of Time Code and Interval in the event list.
  • Added the Preview function.
  • Added the Channel Link function.
  • Added the Channel Move function.
  • Enabled control via the MIDI terminal or the GPI terminal of the DSP engine.
  • Added the Portico5045 effect plug-in.
  • The effect plug-in SEND rack and INSERT rack can be displayed separately.
  • The patch to the effect plug-in mounted on the SEND rack can be operated from the patch grid.
  • Added the CSV File Import/Export functions.
  • The behavior of the channel [ON] key can be switched when using MUTE GROUP.
  • Now supports the Rio3224-D2/Rio1608-D2(V1.10 or later), Rio3224-D/Rio1608-D/Ri8-D/Ro8-D(V4.50 or later).
  • You can remotely control one Rio3224-D2/Rio1608-D2/Rio3224-D/Rio1608-D/Ri8-D/Ro8-D unit from four separate RIVAGE PM10/PM7/CL/QL units.

Improvements in V2.02

  • Improved communication stability of the Console Network.
  • Improved communication stability of the TWINLANe Network.
  • Improved TWINLANe network card recognition at startup.
  • Devices and modules running in incompatible versions can be detected in the FIRMWARE VER screen.
  • Added assignable functions for USER DEFINED KEYS.
  • CUE STACK is now available even if the CUE MODE is set to LAST CUE.
  • Enabled Individual Pan in Stereo channels.
  • Channel name will not be copied when pairing channels.
  • Changed the default setting of the Input to Mix to POST.
  • Changed the default setting of the individual parameters of Recall Safe to ON.
  • Added the PLUG-IN GEQ ALLOCATION setting to the Recall Safe.
  • Changed the default settings of the Oscillator to PINK NOISE, -40dB.
  • Changed the resolution of the Delay knob.

Using RIVAGE PM Editor and RIVAGE PM StageMix simultaneously

When using RIVAGE PM Editor and RIVAGE PM StageMix simultaneously in the same NETWORK connector, set the COMMUNICATION QUALITY to STAGEMIX/EDITOR in the MISC tab of the NETWORK setting on the Control Surface. When selecting the “EDITOR/STAGEMIX” option, which results in greater communication load and slower performance of StageMix, enable IGMP Snooping on the Wi-Fi device.

Fixed Bugs in V2.02

  • Solved a problem in which the “ring connection open!” was displayed with false detection picking up transient state at startup.
  • Solved a problem in which Focus Recall was disabled after updating the same Scene two times.
  • Solved a problem in which the Extracting status may continue to display “Extracting scene data...100%” after finishing SYNC.
  • Solved a problem in which noise occurred at a specific frequency when using the DE-ESSER of the CHANNEL DYNAMICS.
  • Solved some minor errors.

Known issue

  • When a power redundant error occurs in the Rio3224-D2/Rio1608-D2, the SYSTEM/SYNC error message on the RIVAGE PM unit mounted to the Rio3224-D2/Rio1608-D2 is incorrectly displayed as “DANTE SETTING MISMATCH.”

Notices in version updating

  • The project file saving method has been changed from V1.20.
    When loading a project file saved by V1.16 or earlier, the patching of plug-ins may be unintentionally removed. If this happens, manually patch them again.
  • When updating the console’s firmware from V1.20 or earlier, the progress bar may stop at the 14/18 status, or an error may stop the updating process. If this continues for five minutes or longer, turn the power of the console to off and on, and then retry the firmware update.
  • When loading a project file saved by V1.21 and earlier, the RACK Focus status indicator on the SCENE screen may not light even if effect plug-ins or GEQs are the target of Focus Recall. To indicate the Focus status properly, open the SCENE SETUP (FOCUS) pop-up screen once, and then close it. After doing this, save the revised project file to remove this problem in the future.

Notices in version downgrading

  • Do not load a project file saved by V1.51 and later to a system running V1.21 and earlier. When loading, all plug-ins will be un-mounted in all Scenes including the current memory. In this case, re-mounting and setting up of parameters will be required.
  • When downgrading the firmware, be sure to initialize all systems after downgrading.

Notices for usage

  • Even if connecting outputs from two units of DSP-R10 to a port of an I/O Rack via TWINLANe, patches made from other DSP engines will not be displayed on the screen. Be sure not to make duplicate patching. Likewise, the last patch is the priority after device re-booting or TWINLANe re-connection.
  • If you recall a Scene in which a very high HA gain was set, from a scene having a low HA gain, even if no signal is patched, a very loud pink noise signal is occasionally output for a few seconds.
  • When a certain type of USB keyboard is connected to the console, the following message may appear:
    You must restart your computer to apply these changes [Restart Now] [Restart Later]
    If this message is shown, remove this USB keyboard. It is not compatible with the console and cannot be used.
  • When syncing RIVAGE PM Editor or consoles, do not mount any plug-in while the Extracting Scene Data indicator is shown. The mounting information will not be shared, and the settings will be different between them.
  • When a mirroring failover occurs, if the DSP engine B is set to active, the Word Clock master will not change automatically. To prevent sound breakdown, do not turn off the power of the DSP engine A even after a failover occurs.
  • A function for loading Dante device mount information and patch information from the console file will be included in a future version.
