Sonic Electronix has teamed up with Rane Pro Audio, and there are a ton of great new mixers that are going to be added to the catalog very soon that any DJ or musician would truly enjoy getting their hands on. Rane’s main marketplaces are DJ (performance, club, mobile & recording) and Commercial (room-combining, paging and associated systems) featuring advanced analog and digital audio gear for each category. Their corporation is based in Mukilteo, WA, and all of their products are designed and manufactured entirely in the United States with worldwide product delivery. The company name was designated from an anagram generated from the joint letters of the first and last names of the founders.
Rane started out with four products targeted at small bands, intended to improve their live performances. At the lead was a distinctive 12-input, 6-output matrix mixer (MM 12) used to produce six different monitor mixes for driving stage monitor speakers. The notion was to help performers hear themselves better while performing. Till that time, small bands had no monitors at all, or they were all driven by the same mix.
What Rane delivered was new, efficiently designed, reasonably priced gears to aid solving the many problems of on-stage checking. Supplementing the matrix mixer was the industry’s first 6-channel power amplifier (MA 6), and a companion 6-channel headphone amplifier for practice (HC 6). The fourth primary product was an exclusive combo unit, comprising of a 1/3-octave graphic equalizer and a simple realtime analyzer (RE 27), intended to give the performing musician an easy-to-use device for refining their sound in all locations.
Rane also takes much pride in their product packaging, and have illustrated that they are dolphin safe. At Sonic, we are very excited about working with Rane and sharing all of it’s great products with you. Make sure to check out all of the new Rane products we have here at Sonic Electronix.
