The HDSPe MADI FX features 390 audio channels. Three MADI I/Os – two optical and one coaxial – are accompanied by one AES/EBU I/O and one analogue monitoring output. A Word Clock connection and four MIDI I/Os have also been added. Extremely compact, only one PCIe slot is required on the motherboard, plus one free slot opening on the case.
A newly developed modular Hammerfall Pro Audio Core promises low latency, with the ability to process three times as many channels as the channel count of the previous MADI flagship, while reducing the system load and enabling low latencies down to 32 samples. The new core technology is accompanied by a special version of TotalMix FX, which allows using the almost 400 channels. A new and faster DSP allows for a greater number of EQs and compressors. The 192 kHz RME effects engine allows latency-free monitoring with numerous effects like EQs, Compressors, Reverb, and Echo rendered directly on the hardware of the card, independent from the DAW software in use.
The integrated TotalMix matrix conveniently allows the use of the card as a MADI router. In SRO mode the card operates as single MADI input device, recording up to 64 channels. RME’s Seamless Redundancy Operation uses the cards’ 3 MADI receivers to provide fail safe operation.
The card also features SteadyClock, RME’s active jitter suppression and the analysis toolbox DIGICheck – including EBU R128 metering – as well as nearly identical operation of the card under Windows and Mac OS.
