The RME MADI Converter converts MADI digital audio streams from optical format to coaxial and from coaxial to optical. It contains six fully independent bi-directional converters.

All 12 inputs of the RME MADI Converter are equipped with status LEDs on the front panel, and any input signal will pass through unaltered. A MADI Bridge supports up to 64 channels in any format, including special invisible control commands, any sample rate and even out-of-spec data rates or violations of the MADI protocol.

Special equalising features and highly sensitive input stages allow the use of coaxial cables up to 100m, even between several devices. Additionally, the MADI Converter includes a 1 on 3 MIDI distributor, which allows copying one MIDI input signal to three MIDI outputs and eliminating the need for an external MIDI distributor. Six coaxial BNC inputs and outputs each, six optical inputs and outputs, a MIDI input and three MIDI Thru are supplied for optimised flexibility and compatibility.

The RME MADI Converter also offers an internal high performance switching power supply that allows operation of the MADI converter with voltages ranging from 100 to 240 AC Volts. It is short-circuit-proof, has an integrated line-filter, is fully regulated against voltage fluctuations, and suppresses mains interference.
