RME ADI-642 MADI-AES Converter

24 Bit 192 kHz 8-channel MADI / AES Format Converter with 72 x 72 Routing Matrix
MFR# ADI642

Product Description

The RME ADI-642, an 8-channel format converter from MADI to AES and vice versa, is the latest addition to RME's successful MADI series. Amongst other applications, the unit can serve as ideal AES/EBU frontend for the Hammerfall DSP MADI PCI card. Up to 192 kHz at 24 bit are supported. Its most outstanding feature is an easy-to-use 72x72 routing matrix, which can assign an individual input channel to every single output channel, allowing free configuration of all 64 MADI channels and the 8 AES channels. Additional features include:
  • Native support for AES Double and Quad Wire
  • Native support for MADI Double and Quad Wire
  • Direct conversion between these formats
  • Automatic Delay Compensation when using more than one unit
  • Analog stereo monitor output, up to 192 kHz
  • Detailed status display for MADI and AES
  • Completely remote controlable via MIDI
  • Transfer of MIDI data via MADI
  • SteadyClock for maximum jitter reduction and clock regeneration

The compact unit with 19" width and 1 unit height serves as format converter MADI to/from AES . MADI handles 64 channels of 24 bit audio at sampling frequencies up to 48kHz, 32 channels up to 96kHz, and 16 channels up to 192kHz. All channels are transferred across a single cable, either coaxial (BNC) or optical network cable. In both cases, cable lengths of more than 100 meters can be achieved. The AES/EBU channels are provided via 4 XLR inputs and outputs, respectively. The ADI-642 accepts 56 channels and 64 channels as well as 96k and 192k frame at its input, and can be set to generate those formats at its output. This way the ADI-642 even serves as perfect interface between otherwise incompatible MADI devices.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
