Yamaha Updates MMP1 Studio Monitor Management System

New firmware for the Yamaha MMP1 studio monitor management system has been announced which adds a range of refinements, including support for the CB Electronics TMC-1 monitor controller.

The MMP1 is an innovative signal processor which incorporates advanced monitor control and a comprehensive range of audio processing functions, to support contemporary production workflows, in one compact rack-mountable unit.

In addition to a 40 x 36 monitor matrix which allows flexible configuration of main monitor, cue and other audio I/O, the MMP1 includes a 32 x 32 speaker management matrix with time alignment functionality and FIR crossover filters. This space-saving unit offers unprecedented flexibility for managing formats from stereo to immersive multi-channel audio.

The Version 1.1 firmware update adds remote control support for the TMC-1 monitor controller from CB Electronics, a leading manufacturer of equipment for post-production studios. With the new firmware, the TMC-1 can be used to remotely control MMP1 monitor source selection, speaker system selection, levels, mute and dim. Used in conjunction with the MMP1 Controller app for iPad, this provides convenient access to a wide range of detailed settings, for a more efficient, productive monitoring environment.

Other Version 1.1 refinements which contribute to the MMP1’s improved overall use include:

  • Pop-up EQ graphs and meters that can be rearranged in the editor window

  • Expanded lip sync delay time (up to 300ms)

  • SPL parameter lock to prevent accidental changes

  • Expanded GPI assignments

  • Meters that can be rearranged as required

The MMP1 Version 1.1 update will be available as a free download from the Yamaha Pro Audio web site during the third quarter of 2018.
