Rme Hdspe Pci Express  ...RME – Rme Hdspe Pci Express Card
In the year 2001, RME started a revolution in mobile audio recording: the HDSP System, consisting of a PCI or CardBus card plus an external I/O-box. It was the first audio system that could operate on both desktops and laptops. In fact, it was the first professional multitrack system for notebooks at all. Thanks to continuing firmware and driver updates it has remained a cutting-edge product, still offering top-notch performance, enjoying great popularity among those who have incorporated it into their computer-based workstations.The PCI Express card uses RME’s own audio bus, already known from the PCI version, operating in combination with Multiface II, Multiface, Digiface, and the RPM DJ interface. All users of RME interfaces can easily expand their system so that it operates with the latest and fastest PCI Express computers and Windows Vista, not losing all the money formerly invested in audio hardware. RME’s HDSPe PCI Card is not based on a PCI to PCI Express bridge, which would simply add PCIe to existing PCI technology. It is a genuine PCI Express solution, which consequently takes full advantage of the format, achieving significant performance gains in multitrack audio. RME’s flash update technology ensures future firmware improvements, adjustments, and bugfixes to be installed easily at any time.The PCI Express interface of the HDSPe system is based on the PCI Express Base Specification v 1.1. It represents a 1-Lane PCI Express Endpoint Device and supports 2.5 Gbps line speed. Thanks to the packet-based full duplex communication, the card provides a transfer rate of up to 500 MB/s – 250 MB/s in each direction.The connection between PCI Express card and I/O box is established using ordinary FireWire cable (IEEE 1394, 6-pin). The data transfer does not use FireWire protocol, but RME’s own proprietary bus protocol. The supplied cable is 12 feet long.

Rme Babyface Pro Audio …

Rme Babyface Pro Audio  ...RME – Rme Babyface Pro Audio Interface
RME’ professional audio interface Babyface Pro gets a bit of an update. With superior attention to detail and craftsmanship, the new Babyface Pro is created with the highest precision carved from a block of aluminum. Portable, but extremely high-end, this 24-channel USB 2.0 audio interface incorporates newly designed analog and digital circuits. Its innovative energy saving technologies provide supreme delity with no compromises in level, noise or distortion.For the main I/O RME have designed a completely new XLR socket, which integrates seamlessly into the housing and saves space. The two headphone outputs, oering TRS and mini-jack sockets in parallel, have completely separate driver stages to perfectly match low and high impedance headphones, guaranteeing pristine sonic results no matter what type of headphone is used. The clever user interface is informative and clearly laid out. It makes access to every feature and conguration mode of the Babyface Pro intuitive and easy to use. Even in stand-alone mode, routing and mixing of inputs to outputs directly on the device opens a whole world of possible applications.Babyface Pro’ two digitally controlled preamps provide individually switchable 48V phantom power. These brand new circuits feature gain of up to 70 dB, adjustable in steps of 3 dB, plus a relay-driven PAD, resulting in exceptional EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) performance as well as line overload protection, and enough gain for even the lowest level microphones.Latest generation low latency AD/DA converters, combined with RME’ unique SteadyClock technology, result in exceptional specications that will satisfy the most demanding of professionals.Babyface Pro’ incredibly ecient design almost never requires an external power supply it’ perfectly stable on USB 3 bus power, and also most USB 2 ports, with no degradation in any technical specication. This makes it perfect for mobile recording, even with a pair o12 Input and 12 Output channels4 x Analog Inputs (Mic, Line, Instrument)4 x Analog Outputs (2 x XLR, 2 x Phones)1 x ADAT I/O or 1 x SPDIF I/O optical1 x MIDI I/O1 x USB 2.0 (USB 3 compatible)Digital Gain control on all inputsSeparate outputs for high and low impedance headphonesTotalMix FX (with EQ, Reverb, Delay)
