The fourth generation of the Yamaha Active Field Control (AFC) acoustic conditioning system features significant upgrades in digital signal processing (DSP) and hardware. When combined with optimally placed microphones and loudspeakers, AFC4 operators can greatly enhance or create any space, from a cathedral to an outdoor or roofless venue, with an organic-sounding acoustical environment. Active Field Control systems augment the architectural design of facilities while maintaining the natural sonic characteristics of a space and providing alternatives to physical renovations. The AFC4 system processor’s sampling rate, fixed FIR taps, FIR presets and configurable FIR tap settings are upgraded, and the system is now equipped with a FIR EQ in favor of the previous AFC3 version’s parametric EQ. Combined with 32 mic inputs and 96 output channels, this DSP upgrade lets users realize a broader range of sonic “experiences,” from subtle and nuanced to dramatic and extreme.
