Yamaha and Elgato Unveil Powerful Collaboration

The ZG01 Game Streaming Audio Mixer is now compatible with STREAM DECK, and the accompanying plugin is offered for free download

Yamaha Corporation and Elgato, a prominent audiovisual technology provider for content creators, have joined forces to enhance their range of products and services. The collaboration between Yamaha’s Creator & Consumer Audio Division and Elgato aims to develop a software plugin that integrates Yamaha’s audio interfaces, mixers, and other products with Elgato’s Stream Deck controllers. This partnership will fortify the offerings of products and services, catering to creators in diverse fields such as music, video production, and live streaming.

The latest development includes the compatibility of the ZG01 Game Streaming Audio Mixer with the STREAM DECK. Users can now conveniently manage the rich audio features and DSP effect functions of the ZG01 in real-time using the keys and dials on the STREAM DECK+. Previously, these functions required the use of the dedicated “ZG Controller” app. The collaboration allows users to freely customize STREAM DECK settings and download the ZG01 plugin for free from Elgato’s website, expanding the functionality of the Yamaha Game Streaming Audio Mixer.
