RME's reputation for high quality, stable multi-channel audio interfaces continues to grow with the introduction of two new interfaces. The ADI 642 MADI to AES interface - MADI is a protocol used by many high end digital consoles to carry digital audio.
The ADI-642, an 8-channel format converter from MADI to AES and vice versa. Amongst other applications, the unit can serve as ideal AES/EBU frontend for the Hammerfall DSP MADI PCI card. Up to 192 kHz at 24 bit are supported. Its most outstanding feature is an easy-to-use 72x72 routing matrix, which can assign an individual input channel to every single output channel, allowing free configuration of all 64 MADI channels and the 8 AES channels. Additional features include:
Native support for AES Double and Quad Wire Native support for MADI Double and Quad Wire Direct conversion between these formats Automatic Delay Compensation when using more than one unit Analog stereo monitor output, up to 192 kHz Detailed status display for MADI and AES Completely remote controlable via MIDI Transfer of MIDI data via MADI SteadyClock for maximum jitter reduction and clock regeneration
ADI 192 DD
The successor to the ADI-8 DD. The completely re-engineered device was designed to be the best format and sample rate converter ever. Hence the ADI-192 DD not only features considerable improvements compared to the ADI-8 DD, but also adds a number of new and unique features.
Supports 192 kHz with ADAT, TDIF und AES 8-channel sample rate conversion up to 192kHz Sample Rate Conversion can be selected for AES, TDIF or ADAT Sample Rate Conversion supports levels of up to +6 dBFS 8-channel Sample Rate Conversion without phase deviation (sub-sample synchronous) SteadyClock for maximum jitter suppression and clock regeneration Complete triple format converter AES/TDIF/ADAT with added SPDIF TOSLINK I/O Direct support for Double and Quad Wire, S/MUX and Double/Quad Line Special TDIF word clock output Simplified and easy-to-use user interface
