The HAL System Room Combine Processor is designed to simplify the task of configuring the audio system for a set of rooms containing movable walls that can be opened and closed in a variety of ways (configurations that are common in hotels, churches, schools, and conference centers). It is also perfectly suited for meeting rooms that do not combine since it makes paging and background music feeds into such rooms automatic and easy.
For more details on the Room Combine Processor's functionality, see About Room Combine.
Included here is basic information for adding a Room Combine Processor block to your system. For more details about working with the Room Combine Processor, including detailed procedures and example scenarios, see Room Combine.
For a more detailed discussion of this procedure, see Adding a Room Combine Processor to the Processing Map.
|Distributed Program Bus flag||Represents the automatic inclusion of the Distributed Program Bus channels|
Connection point for wiring local microphone input to a Base RoomA room that cannot be subdivided. A base room can be combined with other base rooms to form new rooms, but the base room itself cannot be broken down any further.
Click <Add> to add another Mic In node, or wire a Mic input directly to the <Add> node to automatically create a new node.
Use the <Add Cascade In> flag to cascade in another Auto Mixer (specifically, the AM2 RAD). To add the AM2, drag it from the I/O tab (after adding it in the Hardware Workspace) and drop it on the flag. You can cascade multiple AM2s. Each time you add one, another flag appears, ready to accept the next AM2.
Connection point for wiring local line input to a Base RoomA room that cannot be subdivided. A base room can be combined with other base rooms to form new rooms, but the base room itself cannot be broken down any further..
Click <Add> to add another Line In node, or wire a Line input directly to the <Add> node to automatically create a new channel.
|Record Out and Room Out nodes||Connection point for wiring the room's audio to a specific output. Record Out is intended for routing output for recording or assisted listening purposes, or overflowing room audio to another zone that contains its own volume control and paging zone. The Record Out node sends pre-level and pre-page output to its destination—thus avoiding room volume changes or page interruptions from being recorded. Room Out is the output you want reinforced in the room.|
|Zone flag||Represents the room's paging zone (and automatic connection to the paging system)|
|Add Room button||
Add another base room to the block. You can have a total of 12 base rooms in a single Room Combine Processor block.
To delete a base room, click the red X in the lower right corner of the room.
|Layout & Control tab||
Use this tab to arrange the base rooms in the proper physical layout, to specify which walls are movable, and to create control links that give end users a way to indicate which walls are open or closed. When first opened, help text appears in the Layout work area providing guidance on how to get started.
See below for a more detailed description of the Layout & Control tab.
|Room Processors tab||
This tab contains the Room Processor blocks for each possible room—base rooms as well as combined rooms.
To customize the audio processing for a room, open its Room Processor properties and configure from there.
To customize the control links for a room, enable the Show commonly linked room processor controls option and configure directly from the room processor block, or open the Room Processor properties and configure from there.
See below for a more detailed description of the Room Processors tab.
