The RME HDSPe MADI is a high-performance PCI Express card designed for professional audio applications, providing advanced features and capabilities for multi-channel audio interfaces. The HDSPe MADI is designed to offer flexibility, stability, and high-quality audio performance for professional audio production environments. With its extensive features, it can be used in various configurations, making it a versatile choice for recording, mixing, and routing applications.
Utilizes the MADI format, a multi-channel audio interface widely used in professional settings.
Offers 64 channels of 24-bit audio at sample rates up to 48 kHz, 32 channels at up to 96 kHz, and 16 channels at up to 192 kHz.
Supports transmission via a single line, either coaxial with BNC plugs or fiber cable.
More than 100 meters of cable length can be achieved in both coaxial and fiber configurations.
Utilizes the PCI Express card format for compatibility with modern computer systems.
Offers advantages such as higher sample rates, increased features in TotalMix, and direct support for the Time Code Option.
Provides low latencies, making it suitable for live recording and live mixing applications.
Analog monitor output features low-latency converter technology for high-quality audio.
Offers advanced routing and mixing capabilities with TotalMix FX, supporting phase and internal loopback per channel and +6 dB gain for hardware outputs.
Fully compatible with all devices featuring MADI interfaces.
Can be combined with the ADI-648 for an 8 x ADAT optical PC interface.
Configuration and Control:
TotalMix can be completely remote controlled via MIDI.
Configuration memory stores important settings for immediate activation upon power-up, eliminating disturbances during startup.
Uses SteadyClock to extract the reference clock at the lowest jitter directly from the MADI signal.
Provides stable clocking without the need for additional word clock or AES lines.
Includes an expansion board with word clock I/O (BNC) and MIDI I/O.
MIDI I/O offers two independent MIDI inputs and outputs via breakout cable.
Virtual MIDI Port:
Features a virtual MIDI port for direct transmission of MIDI data over MADI.
