At the Musikmesse in Frankfurt (10th to 13th April 2013) RME will present two new RME MADI-compatible products. The Octamic XTC is designed as a flexible microphone preamplifier with 8 precursors, which continues the award-winning Octamic series. With the MADIface XT RME presents the world’s first audio interface, that supports PCI-EX and USB 3.0.
8 Mic Pres, multifunction LCD & class-compliant. The curtain rises on a new-generation Octamic: RME shows the XTC Octamic, a new digital mic preamp with 8 high-class microphone preamps in 1U 19-inch housing. Via the USB connection the reference class preamplifier with 192 kHz support can be operated directly from the computer.
World’s first interface with USB 3.0 and PCI-EX – With the MADIface XT, RME provides the world’s first audio interface with USB 3.0 and PCI-EX support. The two high-speed connections make the perfect connection to modern PC / Mac systems. Excellent RME drivers guarantee ultra low latencies. A newly developed modular ProAudioCore also gives the necessary computing power for the 192kHz operation. Thus, an extremely low latency of only 32 samples is achieved with modern computers.
