The Rane AM1 is part gain-sharing automatic mic mixer, part manual line mixer, part USB audio I/O device, and simultaneously a Rane RAD.
Use it as a standalone mic/line mixer, or add more gain-shared mics using up to seven Rane AM2 Automixers. Use the RAD Port to transport the Main Output mix digitally via CAT 5 to either a Rane HAL System RAD Port, or to a CobraNet network.
Each of the four XLR Mic Inputs offers front panel input Level controls feeding a gain-sharing automatic mixer. Rear panel, 3-position switches for each Mic Input support dynamic mics (without phantom power), condenser mics (48 V phantom), or wireless receiver outputs (+10 dBu max).
A front panel Mic Mix Level control adjusts the volume of all automixed mics.
The AM1 is optimized for automixing speech. The mic inputs have a fixed 100 Hz to 7 kHz bandpass filter to provide the best voice-only automatic mixing using a gain-sharing algorithm.
