This years-old blog article talked about testing your 3rd-party control system code using only the Halogen software. Here’s a video that steps through how to set up and use PuTTY software to monitor your PC’s IP Address, not the DSP. This lets you send and monitor Ethernet control messages to and from Halogen software – no hardware required.
If you need a break from reading, just watch this video introduction to the RAD26:
Rane’s new RAD26, a member of Rane’s HAL System provides enough audio and control I/O to support one room in a HAL audio system.
This is the final HAL blog post for 2015 and it is one covering a few things without getting too deep.
IP addresses and HAL.
1. RaneLink and link-local
2. Static IP address
3. DHCP IP address
When Halogen is installed a service is installed as well: RaneLink II. Continue reading
1. Orthogonal wires
2. Notes pane
3. Hardware pane
Many customers ask “How do I get straight wires with sharp corners on the Processing Map?” Continue reading
Halogen 5.0’s FIR Import DSP block is available to all four current HAL models.* The FIR block permits importing finite impulse response (FIR) filter coefficients. To obtain the FIR coefficient’s file, either:
1) Download the applicable FIR file for the loudspeaker from the manufacture’s website – e.g., Fulcrum Acoustics, or
2) Generate the FIR coefficients from measured loudspeaker response data using the software packages that create FIR filters manually:
Halogen 5.0 uses the same Control Page Designer interface so you can create control pages, then assign them to Web Controls (smart phones, tablets or PC web browsers) or to one or more DR6 remotes, or to both. This tutorial video details all the steps to create pages, link controls, create user logins and assign both users and/or DR6 remotes to the suite of pages you create.
Setting up Rane’s EXP2x requires a different workflow in Halogen than all other HAL devices. In Halogen 5.0 there are only three things to do with the EXP2x. All other set up, routing, naming and troubleshooting steps require Audinate’s Dante Controller software. All parameter settings in the live Dante devices and network are pushed from Dante Controller to the EXP2x. Thus, Halogen software receives real-time updates from the network.
