RME unveils world’s first USB3 audio interface and smallest portable interface –RME MADIface XT
The RME MADIface XT is the world’s first USB3 audio interface – and the world’s smallest portable interface that provides access to hundreds of audio channels in such a small package. The RME MADIface XT is the only device providing the fastest interfacing technologies available for maximum channel count and lowest latency in a mobile solution. Three 64-channel MADI I/Os are accompanied by 4 MIDI I/Os, one stereo AES/EBU and a word clock I/O. To bring together the most complete I/O set for live or studio usage, two digitally controlled high-end mic/line preamps, two balanced line outputs and one stereo phones output, all fully 192 kHz capable, are included.
The MADIface XT includes a powerful digital real-time mixer, the Hammerfall DSP mixer, based on RME’s unique, sample-rate independent TotalMix technology. It allows for practically unlimited mixing and routing operations, with all inputs and playback channels simultaneously, to any hardware output.
The RME MADIface XT connects to the computer via USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and PCI Express. Using a Thunderbolt to PCI Express adapter, the XT connects to Thunderbolt as well, with the added advantage of a much longer cable connection. For perfect desktop operation (monitoring, remote control) you can connect the optional advanced remote control to the XT.
