Multitrack recording/virtual sound check
The RIVAGE PM10 system supports
multitrack recording via a Dante network.
To perform multitrack recording, first you
must install an HY144-D card in HY card slot
4 on the DSP engine (max. 144-in/144-out),
then record using the DAW software on your
computer in a Dante network.
If your computer already has Dante
Accelerator (AIC128-D) installed, you can
perform up to 128-in/128-out (Fs=96 kHz),
If you use Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS),
you can perform up to 64-in/64-out*
(FS=48 kHz) recording.
■ Multitrack recording
HY card slot 4 on the DSP engine is used for
multitrack recording exclusively. It features
the Recording Patch function for recording
and playback. Patch channels (into which you
want to perform multitrack recording) to the
ports of HY card slot 4. Also, you can use
DAW playback for virtual sound checks.
■ Split Out recording
If you install an HY144-D card in HY card
slot 2 on the I/O rack, the input signal can be
directly sent from this slot to the Dante
network (Split Out mode), and then recorded
using the DAW software on your computer.

Virtual sound check
Materials that were recorded by multitrack recording can be used for virtual sound check. For
example, you can record a rehearsal session the day before the concert, and use that recording for
sound check on the day of the concert. This "virtual sound check" will reduce the burden on both
musicians and sound engineers, and will help them get ready efficiently. In addition, a special
patching allows for a virtual sound check that mixes multitrack material from the recorder with
actual stage inputs.
* The number of channels available for recording varies depending on the specifications of the
computer that has the DAW installed.
Dante is a network protocol developed by Audinate. It is designed to deliver multi-channel audio
signals at various sampling and bit rates, as well as device control signals over a Giga-bit Ethernet
