Show More
The Rane AM2 is an eight-channel, gain-sharing mic/line automixer. It provides eight XLR balanced inputs that are selectable between mic- and line-level. These inputs feed a gain-sharing circuit. The unit also doubles as a RAD device, with a RAD port to route your mix to the company's HAL system. It is also possible to daisy-chain up to seven additional AM2 Automixers at a time.

The Rane AM2 is an eight-channel, gain-sharing mic/line automixer. It provides eight XLR balanced inputs that are selectable between mic- and line-level. These inputs feed a gain-sharing circuit. The unit also doubles as a RAD device, with a RAD port to route your mix to the company's HAL system. It is also possible to daisy-chain up to seven additional AM2 Automixers at a time.

Balance the levels going into a stereo mix, and power individual channels with 48V phantom power as needed. With a three-position switch on the rear of the unit, you can choose among dynamic mic support, condenser mic support, and line-level optimization for wireless receiver outputs. Front-panel metering shows you when the signal is near or at clipping 0 dBFS.

The AM2 is designed for automixing speech sources; therefore, the unit's mic inputs have been bandpassed at a fixed range of 100 Hz to 7 kHz. The main output channels can be set to mic- or line-level to better suit your particular downstream destination.

Standalone Use

When the AM2 is used standalone, both the XLR Output and the RAD Port output audio are affected by the front-panel Output Level control.

Cascaded Use

When the AM2's Cascade Output feeds a downstream Rane AM2, the front-panel Output Level control only affects the XLR Output.

Rundown of the RAD Port

The RAD Port sends the AM2 Output mix to a Rane HAL System. Cascade IN accepts audio and data from the previous AM2's Cascade OUT. This adds eight more mic channels to the initial AM 2 creating a 16-channel gain-sharing automix. A maximum of eight AM2s can be cascaded, offering up to 64 gain-shared mics. Simply connect Cascade OUT ports to Cascade IN ports and the RAD Port to the HAL. Both the Cascade IN port and the Cascade OUT/RAD Port have status indicators to aid setup and troubleshooting. Rear-panel Fault, Locate, and Power indicators inform of device errors, the AM2's physical location and AC power status. Duplicate Locate and Power indicators on the front help installers physically locate and verify AC power to the AM2.
