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.

These reverb Add-on Effects employ the latest "REV-X" algorithms first introduced in Yamaha's SPX2000 Professional Multi Effect Processor. The REV-X programs feature the richest reverberation and smoothest decay available, based on years of dedicated research and development. REV-X Hall, REV-X Room, and REV-X Plate programs are provided, with new parameters such as room size and decay envelopes that offer unprecedented definition and finer nuance control. The REV-X Hall and REV-X Room programs have a very open sound, while REV-X Plate delivers a brighter tonality that is ideal for vocals. All models deliver dense, warm reverb that does not interfere with the natural timbre of the source.
