Yamaha has released v2.0 firmware for its DM3 series digital mixing consoles, ‘significantly enhancing flexibility and expandability’ with new, customer-requested features including an insert function and USB Driver Mode option.

Yamaha DM3 v2.0 firmwareLaunched in April 2023, the DM3 series set a new standard in compact mixers, challenging the preconception that a compact digital console would necessarily be to compromised on its feature set. Available in a choice of Dante networking (DM3) and non-Dante (DM3 Standard) models, these portable digital mixers reckon ot offer facilities unmatched by any other console of a similar size.

The DM3 series Firmware 2.0 adds functionality along with a new insert function for the input/output channels. This allows users to insert VST plug-ins via USB (using the included VST Rack Elements software), and also to insert external devices via USB or Dante.

An extra USB Driver mode option has also been included. In addition to the existing Mode 1, which allows 18 channels to be connected to a single application, Mode 2 allows connection to up to four applications, connected via USB to a PC or Mac. The DM3 is also now compatible with Dante Domain Manager, providing further expansion and flexibility for Dante networks.

Further improvements include support for the exFAT USB storage format, which means less limitations and easier recording of high quality audio on USB external storage media of up to 256Tb. The FAT32 format will still be supported, which is limited to media with a maximum size of 32Gb.

Other new features in the v2.0 firmware upgrade include screen calibration and fader position calibration, which enhance the consistency of the user experience and allow the colour balance of the screen to be adjusted, according to the operating environment.

‘The Yamaha DM3 series has set a new standard for compact mixers and we are very pleased to provide this update, which delivers even more flexibility and expandability. We think this will be beneficial to many professional users,’ says Yamaha Professional Solutions Division Senior General Manager, Thomas Hemery.

‘In an ever-changing world, which constantly presents new challenges as well as opportunities, the new firmware for DM3 series mixers gives users the power and flexibility to do more with a compact digital console. We at Yamaha are always listening to the opinions of our customers and we will continue to work hard at providing the most flexible, comfortable mixing environments and systems.’
