New products introduced at the musikmesse 2013 in Frankfurt
MADIface XT - The world‘s first USB 3.0 audio interface
Not only has 3 MADI I/Os with 64 channels each, but also 2 mic/line inputs, 2 XLR line and one stereo phones output, plus one AES/EBU I/O - a total of 196 audio inputs and 198 audio outputs. Plus several MIDI ports via USB, MADI and DIN. To use all this in a portable device with the typical RME performance, the XT uses external PCI Express and USB 3.0 to guarantee hi-speed data transfer. It also features TotalMix FX, can be used completely stand-alone, remote controlled via MIDI and much more.
OctaMic XTC -The all-purpose hi-end preamp/converter
The OctaMic XTC is the swiss army knife among RME‘s interfaces. An advanced eight channel microphone/line/instrument preamplifier with 192 kHz / 24 bit A/D conversion, AutoSet, four channel D/A conversion for analog or digital input monitoring, and full MIDI remote control via USB, DIN and MADI were not enough to stop RME‘s engineers. ADAT, AES and MADI optical operate as outputs as well as full-channel inputs, easily patched and routed with the comfortable TFT display - turning the XTC into a full blown digital format converter.
Quick access to all functions makes the XTC extremely fast and easy to set up. Its complete state can be saved and recalled from internal presets.
MADIface USB - MADI portability at its best
The MADIface USB is a compact device that provides MADI I/O via USB2 while supporting the format‘s full 64 channels. Its sturdy and bus-powered design makes it as easy to use as reliable in operation. SteadyClock as well as RME‘s well-known MADI compatibility ensure hassle-free operation with other devices.
