Yamaha furthers AFC technology

Yamaha has upgraded its Active Field Control (AFC) technology, designed to turn an acoustically dead environment into a reverberant space at the touch of a button. Delivering 96 kHz processing capability, AFC has been expanded to included AFC Enhance for ambience control and AFC Image for acoustic image control.

The dimensional reverberation control capabilities of AFC Enhance can be used to create acoustic spaces in which acoustic images are positioned and moved around by AFC Image adopting a GUI. The reverberation of a space is controlled while making use of the natural acoustic properties of the existing structure, but without adding artificial reverb to the source sound to create a different impression. Instead, AFC Enhance controls sound propagation within the actual space so that reverberation and volume can be altered while the natural sounds of musical instruments and voices are maintained.

The perceived positions of acoustic images within a space are controlled by AFC Image. With a conventional stereo configuration, the acoustic image will vary according to the listener’s position. Immersive systems, however, allow acoustic images to be placed and moved wherever they are needed to produce the desired effect, with the position remaining absolute regardless of listener location. Unique features include a speaker zoning function that assigns object sounds to only the desired speakers within the system and binaural output for immersive sound in headphones. Systems can be customised to integrate DAWs, mixers and tracking systems in addition to third party hardware and software. The space conversion feature can reproduce 5.1 channel content using a DAW via a live sound system, matching playback to the venue and live sound system speaker layout.
