Rane RPM 26z
Item Code: RPM 26z
Product Number: RPM 26z
The RPM 26z is a 100% drag and drop configurable DSP based device, set up and controlled using Rane's Drag Net software. Industry standard 10Base-T Ethernet is used to communicate between Drag Net devices and any Ethernet equipped PC running Microsoft Windows.
The RPM 26z provides two balanced, line level analogue inputs and six balanced analogue outputs. A two channel AES3 digital input is also provided making the RPM 26z a true 4-input, 6-output device. All I/O, including the AES3 input, has its own 100% user-defined signal processing path.
Cost-effective end user control is possible using optional Rane accessories in conjunction with the Versatile Input Port. Whether your application requires contact closure Preset recall or remote level control using a potentiometer on a wall, the RPM 26z keeps the user interface easy and inexpensive.
Euroblock connectors are provided for audio and logic I/O. Grounding screws for direct connection to the metal chassis are provided for solving EMI problems due to shield wiring. Also found on the rear panel is a standard XLR type connector for the AES3 input, an RJ-45 Ethernet connector for computer control, and an IEC AC power input.
All DSP algorithms are not created equally and textbook DSP algorithms miss the mark where the rubber meets the road. Rane's team of audio-savvy DSP mathematicians - a rare breed itself - in conjunction with our industry leading analogue signal processing gurus have combined forces to offer superlative digital and analogue audio performance. With 24-bit converters, greater than 104 dB throughput dynamic range and double precision 48-bit internal DSP 'math,' the RPM 26z offers the best DSP algorithms and audio performance available.
This ain't no Internet appliance! For example, the RPM 26z's 215 MIPs translate into 150 fully parametric EQ filters, should you need multiple channels of 15 band parametrics and nothing else.
Multiple units are controlled from a single computer using low cost Ethernet switches. The recessed Default button on the rear panel recalls Preset 1 in case of communications failure. The front panel has tri-colour LED meters for each input and output, allowing fast and intuitive signal flow verification without a computer. Current Preset, Control Port, Power, Ethernet and Status indicators are also on the front panel. Powered from an internal power supply and certified as UL, CSA and CE compliant, the RPM 26z is compatible with any installation mandating agency compliance.
