QUICK START
If you were the type that cheated on school book reports by just skimming through the reading assignments, then this
section is for you! It gives you not quite enough information to really know what you’re doing. But, if you follow the
recommended set up procedure, you should get at least a “B.”
Keep the amplifiers and the CP 64 turned off until all connections are made.
INTERNAL SETTINGS: Access to the following internal controls requires removal of the top cover. All internal
settings should be complete before you install the CP 64. The factory default settings work for many applications. However, you may need to change one or more for your system. See the INTERNAL ADJUSTMENTS description on page
Manual-8 for more details
• Each Page Input has a 15 volt Phantom Power switch. The default is off.
• The Page Priority switch assigns priority override to Page 1, Page 2 or NO (none). The default is Page 1. If a Page has
priority, it overrides the non-priority Page in the Zone(s) it is assigned. The NO priority setting allows the Pagers to mix.
• Each Page Input may sum with the Program Pre- or Post-VCA. When set to Pre-VCA, Zone Level, EQ and Limiter
circuits act upon the Page. When summed Post-VCA, the Page is not influenced by Zone Level, EQ or Limiter circuits.
The default is Pre-VCA.
• The Zone 1 Stereo/Mono switch default is Stereo.
• There are two internal trim controls for the Program Priority detector. The Program Priority Threshold trim has a range
of -∞ to -35 dBu with a default of -50 dBu. The Program Priority Release Time has a range of 2 to 20 seconds. The
default is 12 seconds.
PAGE INPUTS: Connect Page Inputs to the Euroblock on the rear panel and select the appropriate MIC or LINE
switch position for each. First, set the gain with the Page TRIM control, then set the Page DETECT THRESHOLD and
finally the Page Zone LEVEL.
PR 2 REMOTE: If you use the optional PR 2 remote (sold separately), wire it to the rear RMT ZONE ASSIGN
Euroblock as indicated. If you require remote control but do not wish to use a PR 2, any simple switch closure to GND will
work. These inputs are also TTL compatible (0 to 5 VDC). See wiring details on pages Manual 9-10.
PROGRAM INPUTS: Connect Program sources to the RCA PROGRAM INPUTS (L1, L2, L3 & P.) If you have a
priority program, like a jukebox, connect it to the PRIORITY Input. The Program PRIORITY ASSIGN switch assigns
priority override to Off, Zone 1, Zone 2, or Both. In the Zone(s) that it is assigned, the priority program is automatically
selected when signal is detected.
EXPAND OUTPUTS: Wire the EXPAND OUTPUT Euroblock for each Zone as required. These are cross-coupled
line drivers and may be used balanced or unbalanced. Each Expand Output can be Page-only, Program-only or Zone
signal. The Zone source will not include the Page if the Page is summed Post-VCA. Page is always available from the Page
source.
ZONE OUTPUTS: Wire the two ZONE OUT Euroblocks as required. These are cross-coupled line drivers and may
be used balanced or unbalanced. Set the LIMIT threshold as required.
ZR 1 REMOTE: You may use one or two ZR 1 Remotes with each CP 64. If you use the optional ZR 1 remote (sold
separately), wire it to the rear REMOTES Euroblock as indicated. If a ZR 1 remote is not used, any simple switch closure
to GND will work for the D0 and D1 pins. These pins are TTL compatible (0 to 5 VDC). The logic is inverse Gray Code.
Any ground referenced 5 volt DC control may be used as the input to V1 or V2. Do not ground the Vr1 or Vr2 pins. See
wiring details on pages Manual 9-10.
The CP 64 is very versatile. While this makes a large number of system applications possible, it also results in complexity. For this reason, it is important to use an organized approach for setup and calibration. A highly recommended setup
procedure appears on page Manual-11. By following it you will encounter fewer problems and reduce the need to increase
our collective phone bills.
WEAR PARTS: This product contains no wear parts.
Manual-1
CP 64 FRONT PANEL
햲 PAGING ZONE ASSIGN switches select the zone(s) a Page signal is sent to. The RMT position activates the rear panel
RMT ZONE ASSIGN port, allowing the optional PR 2 wired remote to assign the active page Zone(s).
햳 ACTIVE indicators light when a Page input signal reaches the Page Detect Threshold. Note that a Page is always Active
when its Page Detect Threshold is set to minimum.
햴 ZONE 1 AND ZONE 2 PAGING LEVEL controls adjust the Paging Level in each Zone.
햵 PROGRAM INPUT LEVEL “stereo”controls allow independent adjustment of level for each Program Input.
햶 DUCKER OFF/ON switches turn the Ducker ON or OFF for each Zone.
햷 DUCKER DEPTH controls allow setting Ducker Depth (the amount of Program attenuation during a Page) from 50 dB
(ccw) to 6 dB (cw) for each Zone.
햸 ZONE PROGRAM SELECT switches assign one of four Program Inputs in each Zone.
햹 ZONE RMT switches, when pushed in, enable the Remotes port for a Zone. This turns control of Zone Level and Zone
Program Select over to the Remotes port. Front panel Zone LEVEL and Zone PROGRAM SELECT controls are inactive
when RMT is selected. Two optional wired ZR 1 remotes may be connected to the Remotes port. An object smaller in
diameter than the switch button is required to engage the RMT switches.
햺 ZONE SIG/OL indicators show SIGnal present at −20 dBu and OverLoad at +16 dBu (4 dB before clipping) respectively.
Signal indicators are located pre-EQ and pre-VCA.
햻 ZONE LEVEL controls adjust the overall Level for a given Zone.
햽 GRAPHIC EQ controls are provided for each Zone. Zone 1 controls are “stereo,” with each slider controlling the response
of both Left and Right channels. These controls allow ±12 dB adjustment of seven ISO center frequencies on two octave
centers.
햾 PWR indicator lights when the CP 64 is connected to a powered RS 1 power supply.
Manual-2
CP 64 REAR PANEL
햲 CHASSIS GROUND SCREW provides a convenient earth (technical) ground connection point. The CP 64 does not
ground the chassis through the power cord. It is important that the unit be grounded.
햳 POWER jack accepts the cable from a Rane RS 1 remote power supply (included) or an available Rane RAP 10 power
supply. This is not a telephone jack. Use of a supply not approved by Rane may damage your unit and void the warranty.
햴 REMOTES port provides the wiring interface for two optional ZR 1 wired remotes. Each ZR 1 remote provides remote
control of Zone Level and Zone Program Select functions. Refer to page Manual-9 for details.
햵 ZONE OUTPUT ports feature balanced, cross-coupled line drivers with Euroblock connectors. These Outputs may be
operated balanced or unbalanced. Zone 1 is stereo. Zone 2 is mono.
햶 ZONE LIMIT threshold controls set the maximum output level for a Zone. These Limiter circuits are true voltage limiters
with a ratio of 15:1. The threshold range is −20 dBu to +20 dBu
햷 ZONE EXPAND OUTPUT ports feature balanced, cross-coupled line drivers with Euroblock connectors. These outputs
may be operated balanced or unbalanced. Zone Expand Outputs are mono.
햸 ZONE EXPAND switches assign Page-only, Program-only or full Zone as the source for each Zone’s Expand Output.
햹 PROGRAM PRIORITY ASSIGN switch determines in which Zone(s) the automatic priority override is enabled. Off
(none), Zone 1, Zone 2 or Both are the possible settings. If you do not intend to use the Priority (“P”) Input as an automatic
override Input, do not assign it with this switch. Use the Zone PROGRAM SELECT switch on the front panel.
햺 Four PROGRAM INPUTS are provided. Three are non-priority Inputs. The fourth is a Program Priority Input. When
signal is present at the Program Priority Input, it is automatically selected as the Input source in the Zone(s) it is assigned
with the Program PRIORITY ASSIGN switch.
햻 RMT ZONE ASSIGN port provides the interface for the PR 2 wired remote. The PR 2 remote is used for Zone assignment
of Page Inputs. Refer to page Manual-9 for details.
햽 PAGING DETECT THRESHOLD sets the Page signal level required to gate a Page on and light the ACTIVE indicator.
The range is −∞ (on) to +4 dBu.
햾 The PAGING OVERLOAD indicator lights when either of the Page Input preamplifiers comes within 3 dB of clipping.
햿 PAGING INPUT TRIM controls adjust Page Input preamplifier gain to match the microphone/source in use, not to set the
page level in the Zones. The range is 30 dB to 60 dB.
헀 PAGING INPUT Euroblock connector provides access to the two balanced instrumentation Paging amplifiers. These
Inputs may be operated balanced or unbalanced.
헁 PAGING INPUT MIC/LINE switches select 30 dB Input Pads when set to LINE. Phantom Power is disabled when LINE
is selected.

• Set both front panel Paging ZONE ASSIGNs to RMT.
• On the PR 2 Remote:
Set Page 2 Assign to Z1 (karaoke area only)
Set Page 1 Assign to Z1 for karaoke -or- Z2 for dining area page -or- BOTH for all-page.
• Zone 1 (karaoke) ZR 1 Remote: Set PROGRAM SELECT to L1; Adjust LEVEL as needed.
• Set both front panel Zone RMT switches in to enable the Zone Remotes
• When a priority program (jukebox) is desired in dining area, set the Program PRIORITY ASSIGN switch to Zone 2 only.
• Expand Outputs are still available (shown unused).
• For karaoke applications, set the internal Z1 Page and Z2 Page switches to Pre-VCA. This allows the ZR 1 remote Level to
control both Page and Program signal levels.

Use of an isolation transformer is highly recommended with Program audio inputs driven from long cable lines. This is
also true for audio sources fed from satellite systems like DSS, DMX, Primestar, AEI, TV Cable, etc. Cable systems are
generally earth grounded down the street from the installation. This can generate quite a large ground loop with your in-house
fuse box and the rest of the audio system.

INTERNAL ADJUSTMENTS
There are a number of controls inside the CP 64 used to
configure the system for specific applications. Access to these
controls is only required during initial system setup. Set up all
internal controls before the CP 64 is installed in a rack or
wired into a system. Make sure the power is off before
removing the top cover to gain access. Refer to the diagram
below for control locations.
There are five internal switches related to the two Page Inputs:
• Page 1 Phantom Power 15VDC
Default: OFF
• Page 2 Phantom Power 15VDC
Default: OFF
• Page Priority
P1, NO, P2 Default: P1
• Z1 Page
Sum Pre- or Post-VCA Default: Pre-VCA
• Z2 Page
Sum Pre- or Post-VCA Default: Pre-VCA
Phantom Power is available for both Page Inputs. If
phantom power is required for the intended microphone, then
set the appropriate switch to ON. If a Page Input Mic/Line
pad switch is set to LINE, phantom power is automatically
defeated.
Manual-8
The Page Priority switch allows you to select one of the
Page Inputs as a Priority Page Input. The Priority Pager
overrides the non-priority Pager in the Zone(s) it is assigned.
It is important to note that the non-priority Pager may still
broadcast in any Zone that the Priority Pager is not assigned
to or not currently broadcasting in. Set the switch to P1 if you
wish Page 1 to have priority over Page 2. If you wish Page 2
to have priority over Page 1, set the switch to P2. If NO is
selected, neither Page Input has priority and both Pagers may
be active at the same time. This allows the Page Inputs to mix
for applications like karaoke or PA. If a Page Input is used for
emergency paging, set it as the Priority Pager.
The Z1 Page and Z2 Page switches allow you to sum
Page signals with Program signals “Pre” (before) or “Post”
(after) the VCA. The VCA is used for Zone Level control and
Limiting. Therefore, if you require the Page Level to be
controlled independent of the Program Level, set the switch
for that Zone to “Post.” This is the desired setting for
emergency paging. If “Pre” is selected, Paging signals sum
with Program signals before the VCA. In this instance both
Page and Program signal levels are affected by the ZONE
LEVEL control. Note the following:
• Zone Level, EQ and Limiter circuits do not affect Page
signals summed Post-VCA.
• Zone Level, EQ and Limiter circuits do affect Page signals
summed Pre-VCA.
• Page signals are not available on the Expand Zone output
when summed Post-VCA.
• Page signals are always available for the Expand Page
output.
There are two internal controls related to the Program
Priority detector:
• Priority Release Time
2 sec to 20 sec (trim pot)
Default: 12 seconds
• Priority Threshold
-∞ to -35 dBu (trim pot)
Default: -50 dBu
The default settings for the Program Priority detector are
chosen for most applications. Detector Threshold settings
lower than the default setting of -50 dBu are prone to false
triggering unless the source is very quiet. If a source is noisy,
you may wish to set the threshold higher to prevent false
triggering. The default Release Time is 12 seconds. You may
wish to decrease the Release Time if the source is a TV, radio,
tape machine or any other relatively constant signal source. If
you have a source like a jukebox, with relatively long search
times, you may wish to extend the Release Time.
There is one internal control related to Zone 1:
• Zone 1 Mode
Mono/Stereo
Default: Stereo
CP 64 CONNECTIONS
Power to the CP 64 should be OFF until all connections
are made.
EUROBLOCK CONNECTIONS
All Input and Output connections are made with Euroblock connectors except for the RCA PROGRAM INPUTS.
When wiring to Euroblocks, a minimum wire gauge of 22 is
preferred for reliability. If the ground or shield wire is left
shorter, it acts as a strain relief for the other wires. Cable with
a flexible jacket is easier to use and less likely to damage the
connections. Avoid stripping excess insulation. Inspect wires
for nicks that may lead to wire breakage. Fully insert each
wire in the appropriate socket and tighten the screw.
Page Input circuits are true instrumentation amplifier
inputs and operate balanced or unbalanced. Expand and Zone
Outputs are driven by high quality cross-coupled line drivers
and operate balanced or unbalanced. For both Inputs and
Outputs, wiring is basically the same. Balanced operation is
recommended. Balanced wiring is straight forward, (+) to (+),
(–) to (–) and shield to shield.
For unbalanced operation, we recommend using two
conductor cable with shield. The cable is wired to the CP 64
the same as for balanced operation. At the other end of the
cable, connect the (+) wire to signal “hot” and both the (–)
and shield wires to ground (important.)
If you use single conductor cable with shield, connect the
shield/gnd wire to both the (–) and shield pins at the CP 64.
At the other end of the cable connect the (+) wire to the signal
“hot” and the shield/gnd wire to ground. When unbalanced
wiring is used, it is very important for the CP 64 and any
other unit in the system to have good earth or technical
grounds. If a unit is located far from the CP 64 or is of a type
that might create grounding problems, isolation transformers
should be used.
When operating cross-coupled line drivers unbalanced
(i.e., any CP 64 Output), it is essential to ground the (–) pin.
PROGRAM INPUTS
The four stereo Program Inputs connect to RCA jacks.
These Inputs are unbalanced. The same guidelines given
above for unbalanced operation apply to these Inputs.
Refer to Rane Note 110, “Sound System Interconnection“
for additional wiring information.
REMOTE INSTALLATION
The CP 64 supports wired remotes for Page Assign, Zone
Level and Zone Source selection. Wire lengths of up to 1000
feet are possible. A brief list of suitable wire types is provided
in the WIRE TYPES section on the next page.
The PR 2 remote provides Page Zone Assign for Page 1
and Page 2 signals and is usually located at the Page source.
If your application requires one of the two PAGE ASSIGN
switches to control both Page 1 and Page 2 Assign, simply
wire all Page 1 and Page 2 control bits in parallel. You may
wish to leave the knob off the unused control and cover it
with one of the hole plugs provided in the kit. If your installation requires Page 1 and Page 2 remote control at two
different locations, only three wires are required for each PR
2 remote (Z1, Z2 & GND). As above, you may wish to leave
the knob off the unused control and cover it with a hole plug.
The ZR 1 remote provides Zone Level and Source
Selection, allowing local control from inside the Zone. Two
ZR 1 remotes may be used (only use one in each Zone). If
only one of the two controls is used, you may wish to cover
the unused control with one of the hole plugs provided in the
kit. If you require one ZR 1 remote to control both Zones,
simply wire the ports in parallel. This may be done with
Program Select only, Level only or both. If only one of the
two controls is wired in parallel, the other is still available for
a second remote.
When paralleling one remote across multiple CP 64s, all
three control pins must be wired, including the shields.
Power to the CP 64 should be off until all connections are
made. It is important to ensure that the CP 64 Remote Ports
are not subjected to sustained voltages outside the range of 0
to 5 volts DC or high levels of static. Inputs are protected,
however, caution is the better part of… you know. It is a good
idea to install the wiring, connect it to the remote assemblies
and then make the final connections at the CP 64. Do not
short Vr1 or Vr2 pins to ground. These pins are current
limited, however, excess heat is generated in the 5 volt supply
if a short occurs. Never subject the Vr1 or Vr2 pins to
voltages above 5 volts.
Manual-9
REMOTE MOUNTING
The ZR 1 and PR 2 remote assemblies mount in a standard
U.S. electrical box with a minimum depth of 2.25". Be sure to
note the wire color of each input in order to facilitate correct
wiring to the CP 64. Connect each wire to the 5-pin connector
by fully inserting it in the correct socket and tightening the
screw. Make sure wires are free of nicks and that the cable
jacket is stripped back sufficiently to allow it to lie in the
electrical box with the remote assembly inserted. Use the flat
head #6 screws supplied with the kit to mount the remote
assembly and silk-screened front panel to the electrical box
(see above diagram). Note the “UP” arrow screened on the
printed circuit board of each remote (it should mount pointing
up).
The silk-screened front panel metal is painted on both
sides. This allows you to custom silk-screen the panel or add
your own custom decals. Simply install the modified front
panel with your art facing out, and you are in business!
Install each knob so that the line on the knob is properly
aligned with the silk-screening on the front panel of the
remote assembly. Install any Decora plate of your choice. For
a secured installation, you may wish to leave the knobs off
and use a blank Decora plate to cover the remote after
adjustment.
WIRE TYPES
Variations in wire type do not greatly affect the performance of the remote controls. However, 22-gauge stranded
wire with a flexible jacket is recommended. You may use 5conductor unshielded remote control signal cable for shorter
runs (less than 200 ft.) or 4-conductor (2 pair) shielded
remote control signal cable (use the shield as the GND return)
for longer runs (200 to 1000 ft.). The type of wire required is
influenced by your installation and local electrical codes.
Rane Corporation does not provide or source cable. Please
contact your local retail or wholesale outlet, not the factory.

RECOMMENDED CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
The CP 64 is a very versatile instrument. While this allows it to conform to the requirements of a large number of system
applications, it also results in complexity. For this reason, it is very important to use an organized approach to system calibration. Once the internal switches are set and the system is connected, take the time for proper calibration. The following is an
ordered list of system adjustments that should make calibration easy and result in optimum performance. Most important:
• Program Priority Assign is set to Off
• Ducker is Off
• Zone Limit Threshold is set to +20 dBu
• Page Zone Levels are set to minimum
• Remote Control is not selected
• Page Zone Assign is set to Both
The following procedure assumes that microphones are used for Page sources. The procedure (except for the exact
wording) is the same for other Page sources.
Make sure the POWER is off!

Manual-11
…CP 64 Calibration (continued)
1. Connect the Power Supply and verify the PWR indicator lights.
2. Verify Zone Level controls are set to Maximum and that you have an active source for each of the Program Inputs you
intend to use. Select each Program Input and adjust its Input Level control to be the very loudest you would ever desire.
3. Adjust the rear panel Zone Limit thresholds so that they just start to audibly reduce the output level. This ensures that the
level in a Zone will never be louder than the maximum level you just set. If you wish one of the Zones to have a lower
maximum loudness, lower the Zone Limit threshold accordingly.
4. Turn the Zone Level controls down to a comfortable listening level.
5. Note that with the Paging Zone Level set to minimum, you will not hear the following Page. Speak very loudly (bark) into
the Paging Mic. Set the proper preamplifier gain by adjusting the Page Trim control (rear panel) so that the Page
OverLoad Indicator (rear panel) just lights. It is important to set the gain of the pre-amp before setting the Page Detect
Threshold. Repeat for second Mic if used.
6. Speak into the Page Mic in a normal voice and adjust the Page Detect Threshold (rear panel) so the Active indicator (front
panel) lights only when you speak. If the Page Detect Threshold is set too low, the Pager may gate on due to background
sound. Repeat for second Mic if used.
7. With an active Program source playing in both Zones, speak into the Page Mic. Adjust the Zone 1 and Zone 2 Page Level
controls (front panel) to provide the correct Page-to-Program mix in each zone. If the Page Detect Threshold is set too
high, there may be a delay when you start to speak. To correct, lower the Page Detect Threshold setting. If a second Page
source is used, verify that it has the same level as the first Page source (it should be close). If not, use the Page Trim
control of the second Page source to adjust its gain to match. If you change the gain of the second Page source substantially,
be sure to reset the Page Detect Threshold.
8. Set the Ducker switch to ON. With an active Program source playing, speak into the Page Mic and adjust the Ducker
Depth as required. Repeat for both Zones.
9. Set the Program Priority Assign switch as required (on rear panel). If you do not require automatic priority program
override in a zone, do not assign it. Instead, use the front panel Program Select switch to select the “P” program Input as
you would any other non-priority input.
10. If remote control is used, select the appropriate RMT switch settings on the front panel and verify that the remotes function
correctly.
11. Adjust the Equalizers as required.
…You’re all set. Enjoy.
