The HDSPe MADI FX from RME is a two-card, compact PCIe solution for transmitting a huge number of audio channels using the MADI protocol. Utilizing two optical and one coaxial set of inputs and outputs, the cards are capable of delivering 194 input and 196 output channels when used in conjunction with the two-channel AES/EBU I/O and the analog monitor output. Wordclock connection and four MIDI I/Os are also available, and only a single PCIe slot is required on the motherboard, plus one free slot opening on the case.
Not only does the system provide an impressive input and output count, but the included TotalMix FX software features a 4,096-channel mixer with a 192 kHz effects engine that allows latency-free monitoring with numerous effects like EQs, compressors, reverb, and echo, rendered directly on the hardware of the card and independent of the DAW software being used. MIDI is integrated and provides comprehensive remote control, while Wordclock I/O includes switchable termination. Additionally, a complete set of diagnostic and monitoring software is available.
