Rane HAL1


The Rane HAL 1 supports 16 in x 16 out audio, which may be increased up to 80 in x 48 out by adding EXP1 Expanders.

Meet HAL, an expert in room combining, paging and distributed audio systems. This groundbreaking architecture is dimensions beyond any other solution. HAL easily guides even novice users through what used to be complex tasks in just minutes. No intricate matrix mixing or presets are required for room combining and paging. No virtual wiring required to distribute pages and background music to multiple zones.


Seamlessly interface HAL to your application with a broad variety of peripheral devices including smart Digital Remotes, Remote Audio Devices (RADs), portable and in-rack automixers, audio I/O and control logic expansion devices, wall sensors, ambient sensing mics, small remote amplifiers, and an advanced Paging Station.


In addition, the HAL Multiprocessor and Halogen software check the status, location, CAT 5 wiring integrity, and that audio is flowing in all peripheral devices, so you know your system is properly connected and ready to go.


HAL is more than just another DSP drag-and-drop system. It has revolutionized system design and installation.


Three HAL Multiprocessors provide various audio I/O and control options for both large and small installations.


Hal 1 Basic Specifications

  • DSP contains 9600 MIPS of processing power
  • Ethernet 1000BASE-T with Zeroconf service discovery protocol for easy set up
  • 8 analog balanced mic / line inputs on Euroblock connectors (green area)
    • Mic inputs have switchable +48 V phantom power
  • 8 analog balanced line outputs on Euroblock connectors (orange area)
  • Front panel signal and overload indicators for all inputs and outputs
  • Four RAD Ports, each Port 2 in x 2 out plus control channel (blue areas)
    • RJ-45 shielded CAT 5e connections up to 500 feet (152 meters)
  • Twelve Digital Remote Ports (brown and blue areas) [DR can connect to RAD Port]
    • RJ-45 shielded CAT 5e connections up to 1000 feet (304 meters)
  • Two Relay Outputs on Mini-Euroblock 6-pin connectors (gray area)
    • COM, NC & NO, 2 A, 48 V 60 W max switching power
  • Four Logic Inputs on Mini-Euroblock 6-pin connectors (gray area)
    • Internal passive pull-up
  • Expansion Bus connects up to four optional EXP1 units (red area)
    • Firewire IEEE 1394a 6-pin connectors
    • 64 x 32 audio channels
  • Unit Size: 2U, 3.5"H x 19"W x 8.25"D (8.9 cm x 48.3 cm x 20.9 cm)
  • Unit Weight: 7 lb (3.2 kg)


HAL1's DSP brain can handle 80 by 48 audio channels (and has over 5 times the DSP horsepower of the RPM 88)

Just because a single blue RAD port is 2 digital in and 2 digital out, the cascadeable AM1 and AM2 Automixers offer up to 64 mic inputs at a single RAD port!



HAL1 supports 16 in x 16 out audio, which may be increased up to 80 in x 48 out by adding EXP1 Expanders. More mic inputs can be added with AM1 and AM2 Automixers. Shipping now!


HAL2 supports 18 in x 18 out audio, of which 2 x 2 come from AES3 on XLR connections. Ships September 2012.


HAL3 supports 4 in x 8 out audio, of which 2 "Line-Plus" Inputs accept balanced line, or sum stereo unbalanced lines. Ships September 2012.


Halogen software includes Ethernet control support for third-party control systems. Standard TCP/IP set and get ASCII text messages control levels, selectors, presets and toggle actions within Halogen. Since the same Halogen software code runs on both Windows® and within HAL hardware, third-party control developers can test all their code using only the Halogen Windows software. Use only software to test your control systems software code and buy the hardware only when the install date arrives. Well-documented example programs for AMX, Crestron and Stardraw Control ease programming headaches.
