Collaboration with Elgato expands products and services for creators

The ZG01 Game Streaming Audio Mixer now works with STREAM DECK - plugin available for free download

Yamaha Corporation announces its collaboration with Elgato, a leading provider of audiovisual technology for content creators. Yamaha Creator & Consumer Audio Division and Elgato are developing a software plugin to integrate Yamaha's audio interfaces, mixers, and other products with Elgato’s Stream Deck controllers, which will strengthen the provision of products and services that support creators in various fields such as music, video production, and live streaming.

Until recently, many of the rich audio management and DSP effect functions built in to the "ZG01" had to be operated using the dedicated app "ZG Controller". Now, when using the latest model "STREAM DECK+" alongside the "ZG01", users can easily adjust the volume balance of game streaming audio in real-time using the keys and dials on STREAM DECK+.

"STREAM DECK" settings can also be freely customized by users. The "ZG01" plugin for Yamaha Game Streaming Audio Mixer is available for free download on Elgato's website and can be used by anyone who owns a "STREAM DECK".

“We’re excited to have a renowned brand like Yamaha join the Stream Deck ecosystem,” said Julian Fest, SVP and GM of Elgato. “The ZG01 has powerful onboard controls with parameters you can customize in its companion app. Stream Deck gives you direct access to those parameters. What’s more, Stream Deck integrates the ZG01 into your entire setup. You could, for example, change voice effects for ZG01’s preset buttons, switch scenes in OBS, and post a message in chat – all with a single tap of a key on Stream Deck.”

"We are very proud to announce our collaboration with Elgato, a brand that provides exceptional solutions in streaming and content creation. Starting from our ZG01 plugin for STREAM DECK series, we are looking forward to deliver enhanced user experience to all the streamers and creators." says Yoshiyuki Tsugawa, Senior General Manager at Yamaha Creator & Consumer Audio Division.
