HDSPe AIO - 32-channel ADAT PCI Express Card, RME
RME presents the world's most versatile PCI Express audio interface - the HDSPe AIO.
This card makes the dream of an All-In-One solution for every possible application come true.
interface shines with the latest 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters, with
more than 112 dB signal to noise ratio. For the first time, all inputs
and outputs are simultaneously operational, even SPDIF (phono) and
AES/EBU (XLR). Additional hi-quality analog inputs and outputs can
easily be added by favourably priced expansion boards. Of course
TotalMix, the unsurpassed flexible routing mixer and SteadyClock, RME's
sensational clock technology with maximum jitter suppression of
external clock signals, are on board too. HDSPe AIO also supports the
optional TCO for synchronization to timecode (LTC/video). All this
combines into a professional 'soundcard' that the world has not seen
HDSPe AIO is the newly developed PCI Express version of the HDSP 9632.
A newly developed genuine PCI Express core consequently takes full
advantage of the new format, achieving significant performance gains in
multitrack audio and lowest latency. Thanks to RME's secure flash
update technology, firmware improvements, adjustments, and bugfixes can
be installed easily at any time.
Differences to HDSP 9632
- PCI Express interface
- S/PDIF and AES/EBU simultaneously operational
- even lower latencies
- independent phones out with
- direct support of HDSP TCO
The HDSPe AIO provides unique features:
stereo analog in- and output, 24-bit/192kHz, > 112 dB SNR
- Optional analog expansion boards with 4 balanced in- or outputs
- All analog I/Os capable of 192 kHz, constant number of available channels
- 1 ADAT digital I/O, supporting 192 kHz via S/MUX4 operation
- 1 SPDIF digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
- 1 AES/EBU digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
- 1 Stereo headphone output, separate DA-converter and playback device
- So up to 18 inputs and 20 outputs can be used simultaneously!
- 1 MIDI I/O with 16 channels of hi-speed MIDI via breakout cable
DIGICheck, RME's unique metering- and analysing tool
- TotalMix: 760 channel Mixer
with 42 bit internal resolution
- Native PCI Express - no PCI to PCI Express bridge used
* The HDSPe AIO ships in a basic version with analog RCA/phono breakout cables (headphone: TRS jack).
Therefore all analog I/Os are unbalanced. An analog XLR breakout cable is available as option
(headphone: Neutrik TRS locking jack), turning analog into balanced mode.
HDSPe AIO includes
RME's own clock technology, combining professional features like
maximum jitter suppression at full varipitch capabilities and software
controlled sample rates.
for Windows: Spectral Analyser, professional level meter for 2, 8, or
20 channels, Vector Audio Scope, various other audio analysis tools.
- Drivers: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/64 (full ASIO multi-client operation of WDM, GSIF 2.0 and ASIO 2.0),
Mac OS X Intel (Core Audio and Core MIDI).
Analog Expansions: An easy to handle ribbon cable connects the optional AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO.
These analog expansion boards having one bracket with 4 stereo TRS jacks offer the same performance as the on-board
stereo analog I/O of the HDSPe AIO: up to 192 kHz, balanced operation and 3 different reference levels.
With this a maximum of 6 analog inputs and 8 analog outputs can be achieved.
Word Clock Expansion: The optional 9632 Word Clock Module provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and two word clock outputs via BNC jacks.
TDIF Expansion: HDSPe AIO can also provide a TDIF interface when using the TEB module.
