Rane RPM 2 overview

  • 1Description

The RPM 2 is a "drag and drop" configurable, multi-process DSP-based device, set up and controlled using Rane's Drag Net software and offering the ultimate in signal processing flexibility, allowing the engineer to draw the system needed without signal flow restrictions. The control software provides complete display and control, in graphical form, of all signal processing configurations and functions, downloadable from a computer via a rear panel port.

Familiar Windows file management tools and shortcuts are incorporated into the Drag Net software, allowing complete project management within a single interface. Industry standard 10Base-T Ethernet is used to communicate between the unit and any Ethernet-equipped PC running Microsoft Windows.

The RPM 2 provides two balanced, line-level analog inputs and two balanced analog outputs, each I/O having its own user-defined signal processing path. 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.

The various DSP functions include parametric and graphic EQ, feedback elimination, crossovers and dynamics along with input and output gain. The processing power of the unit is extremely flexible. For example, the RPM's 215 MIPS can translate into 150 fully parametric EQ filters, should the need arise for multiple channels of fifteen-band parametric EQs and nothing else. With 24-bit converters, greater than 105dB throughput dynamic range and double-precision 48-bit internal DSP math, the RPM 2 offers a stellar integration of DSP algorithms and audio performance.

Multiple units can be 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 three-color LED meters for each input and output, allowing fast and intuitive signal flow verification without a computer. Certified as UL, CSA and CE compliant, the RPM 2 is compatible with any installation mandating agency compliance.
