Brand New in Box. Never Opened.
The RPM 44 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 44 has four balanced, line-level analog inputs and four balanced analog outputs featuring software-controllable microphone preamps with an equivalent input noise (EIN) of -128dBu, satisfying even the most demanding audio applications. Also included are standard XLR-type connectors providing stereo AES/EBU I/O. Each I/O, including the digital I/O, has its own, 100% user-defined signal processing path. 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 200 MIPS can translate into 125 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 106dB throughput dynamic range and double-precision 48-bit internal DSP math, the RPM 44 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 44 is compatible with any installation mandating agency compliance.
