RIVAGE PM Firmware V2.20

Important Notice

Use this file to update the RIVAGE PM system to V2.20.
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) and a MADI card (HY128-MD) must be installed into each rack device in order to update them simultaneously. If any additional cards are installed after performing the update, please execute the update program again.
For a Dante card (HY144-D, HY144-D-SRC), use the Dante Firmware Update Manager to perform the update.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

New features in V2.20

  • Now supports the HY144-D-SRC Audio Interface Card. Please make sure to have the latest firmware version installed before use.
  • Now supports the HY128-MD Audio Interface Card. Please make sure to have the latest firmware version installed before use.
  • The Dante setup information saved in the console file can be loaded. (The console file saved on V2.02 or a later system contains the Dante setup information at that time).
  • The WITH SENDS option can be selected when copying output channels with CH COPY on the CH JOB menu.
  • The CUE function can be selected for MONITOR SOURCE DEFINE.
  • The CUE INTERRUPT can be set independently for the MONITOR and the PHONES, respectively.

Improvements in V2.20

  • Improved the display switching speed between the PLUG-IN screens.
  • The messages can be displayed when duplicate output patches occur between multiple DSP engines.
  • Improved the operations of the SEND ON FADER mode.
    • Now you can turn on/off the operation that CUE state follows when changing the master buses in the SEND ON FADER mode.
    • Now you can enter the SENDS ON FADER mode without displaying the SENDS ON FADER popup screen by holding down the [Shift] key and pressing the [SENDS ON FADER] key.
  • Now you can check if the DSP Mirroring function added in V2.02 is working.

Fixed Bugs in V2.20

  • Solved a problem in which the audio signals were not occasionally input/output to the RPio622/222 and to the local I/O at start-up.
  • Solved a problem in which scenes that could not be recalled were occasionally created when the focus recall was set.
  • Solved a problem in which audio signals might not be output by moving the CUE target by screen operation when selecting LAST CUE as the cue mode.
  • Solved a problem in which the initial value of BAND 1 was set for BAND 2-8 when the FREQUENCY of EQ was reset to the default value on the SELECTED CHANNEL VIEW screen.
  • Solved a problem in which the meter would occasionally not move even though the audio signals were output after starting the system.
  • Solved a problem in which the card was displayed as blank when inserting and synchronizing the WSG-Y16-V2 SoundGrid interface card in the Native mode.
  • Solved a problem in which the SET BY SEL button could not be turned on by grayed out when creating a custom fader bank.
  • Solved a problem in which the display is not updated on the patch grid screen for direct out.
  • Solved a problem in which the mounting information remained in a different state between the RIVAGE PM Editor, the console and the DSP engine, when you mounted any plug-in via the console while Extracting is shown after syncing the RIVAGE PM Editor and the console.
  • Solved a problem in which the CUE was fully cleared when entering the SENDS ON FADER mode.
  • Solved some minor errors.

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

  • 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 a DSP mirroring failover occurs, if the DSP engine B is set to active, the Word Clock master will not change automatically. To prevent audio dropouts, do not turn off the power of the DSP engine A even after a failover occurs.
  • The Dante cards HY144-D and HY144-D-SRC do not officially support the DDM (Dante Domain Manager). It will be included in a future version.
  • Make sure to connect only the RIVAGE PM Editor and RIVAGE PM StageMix to a network connector for a RIVAGE PM Editor, and not the PM Editor network of a different DSP engine.

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.

  • Solved a problem in which noise occurred at a specific frequency when using the DE-ESSER of the CHANNEL DYNAMICS.
  • Solved some minor errors.
