Rane has upgraded the HAL3 digital signal processor with the release of the new HAL3s, which offers 10 dB better dynamic range and adds Rane’s mic/line/line-plus input stages that support a dynamic microphone, condenser mic, balanced line input, or automatically monoed stereo unbalanced inputs.
Also added is another RAD port, making the HAL3s a 6-input, 10-output, 100 percent drag and drop device.
With Halogen 4.1’s customizable HTML web controls for iPad or smart phone control, the HAL3s widens applications solutions when more sources, zones and/or I/O matrixes are needed in house of worship, retail, zoned, paging, corporate AV and background music systems.
