The VCM effects in the Yamaha digital mixers are very good, especially the reverb. I would not say that their compressors or EQ's or better than what Waves or UAD offer though. It is very interesting that they would start working with Rupert. Those who use Nuendo/Cubase I would think would benefit from this collaboration besides newer Yamaha digital mixers. If they are able to nail the Portico EQ and compressors in the future, it would be interesting to say the least.

We can't run away or put our heads in the sand when it comes to new technology. It's going to happen, and it seems Rupert has already accepted it. Therefore he might as well benefit from it.

I heard the previous yamaha VCM effects and they were more than ok. BUT you could only use about 4 or 6 fx at a time. No way to mix a song with them. Hopefully they do full effects integration into channel strips, aux sends, master bus. Could be interesting.

Yamaha has been milking their digital mixers with new and improved for many years. I imagine their newer digital mixers will have more power as to not limit the amount of effects you would be able to use.

Then Yamaha / Steinberg Neve is Rupert Neve and UAD Neve is AMS Neve. Let's see which one is better.

I'm sure that Yamaha will win unless UAD update their OLD plugins. UAD Neve emu is so old that plugin itself can be called "vintage plugin". Sigh...

Great news, I can't wait to install rupert neve vcm into my mixer,
better would be if they made a new mixer with rnd preamps and rnd i/o, with eq compression, and tape simulator of yamaha and rnd, and a rnd stereo field editor, and yamaha reverbs. Does this also mean the return of the fidelice?

This collaboration can only mean for yamaha to go from fairly high end to high end and sit in between the likes of SSL and AMS Neve, but for now we can only guess what those Japanese have in store for future releases, and what market they will cater.
