RME presents the Digiface, a highly extended version of the
well-known PCI card Project Hammerfall (DIGI9652.) Digiface offers 3 ADAT
optical I/Os, ADAT-Sync In, SPDIF I/O and word clock I/O like its predecessor.
On top, there are 2 MIDI I/Os and a separate analog line out. Thanks to its
unique 'Zero CPU Load' technology Hammerfall DSP guarantees highest performance
and lowest latency on both notebooks and desktops!
- 3 x ADAT digital I/O, based on RME's reliable Bitclock PLL
- 1 x SPDIF digital I/O, based on RME's reliable DIGI96
- 1 x ADAT Sync In (9-pin D-type) for sample accurate tranfers
- 1 x Word clock I/O (BNC)
- 1 x analog Line/headphone output, separate output for
- 2 x MIDI I/O, 32 channels high-speed MIDI
- HDSP Meter Bridge: freely scalable level meters, peak- and
RMS calculation directly in hardware
- TotalMix: 1456 channel mixer with 40 bit internal resolution
- S/MUX poured in hardware: 12 channels 96 kHz/24 bit for
record and playback on ADAT optical
...and numerous other features found already in the Hammerfall
series. And all this for an unbeatable price!
The Hammerfall® DSP System comes with drivers for Windows 98/ME
(MME with multi-client operation, ASIO 2.0, GSIF), Windows 2000/XP (fully
multi-client operation of MME, GSIF and ASIO 2.0 plus ASIO multi-client), Mac OS
9.x (ASIO 2.0, OMS MIDI) and Mac OS X (Core Audio, Core MIDI).
The small box using half the space of a 19" rack doesn't show
the included outstanding power and extensive features at first glance. The front
panel hosts some useful status LEDs, like MIDI state, lock state of the digital
inputs and error state of the host-bus. Additionally there's a high-quality 24
bit/96 kHz analog line output, also usable with headphones, and one MIDI
The back of the Digiface offers real Hammerfall connectivity: 1
x MIDI I/O, 3 x ADAT I/O, SPDIF I/O, ADAT Sync In and word clock I/O. This
compact multi-channel solution has everything you need.
The parts of the Hammerfall DSP System can be combined freely.
Therefore the Digiface can be used with notebooks as well as desktop computers.
The connection to notebooks is achieved via a CardBus interface, the connection
to desktops via a PCI interface. The interfaces are sold separately.
