RME HDSP AES-32 I/O System – No Longer Available

32-Channel 24-Bit 192 kHz AES I/O System
MFR# HDSP AES-32

Product Description

RME announces the RME AES-32, the latest member of the globally successful Hammerfall DSP series. This short-length PCI card provides eight AES inputs and outputs at 192 kHz sample rate. It is also equipped with two MIDI I/O ports, word clock I/O and can be used with the optional TCO module for synchronization to LTC and video. The HDSP AES-32 is RME's reaction to requests from audio professionals for an AES-based solution with the typical RME features and quality. This audio card is a perfect all-in-one solution for professional users in the fields of broadcast, TV, theater, stage/PA - and in any professional studio.

The AES-32's remarkable features include:

  • Support for 192 kHz at full channel count
  • Native support for Double and Quad Wire transfer
  • Direct conversion between these formats
  • SteadyClock for highest jitter suppression and clock regeneration
  • Intuitive and clearly laid-out user interface
  • TotalMix: 512 channel mixer with 40 bit internal resolution
  • 48 level meter Peak/RMS, hardware-computed

The card's main board contains word clock I/O and a 25-pin D-sub plug, providing four AES inputs (XLR-F) and four AES outputs (XLR-M) via standard digital breakout cable (Tascam pinout). The word clock input is galvanically isolated via transformer and operates on Single, Double and Quad Speed signals automatically. The expansion board adds audio channels 9-16 and a connector for a MIDI breakout cable with two MIDI I/Os (four 5-pin DIN connectors). It does not require a PCI slot.

Thanks to the DSP-based TotalMix mixer, all 16 inputs and outputs can be routed to 16 physical outputs freely, offering extraordinary monitoring capabilities. Up to 8 fully independent stereo submixes can be created. Routings can be copied and pasted, faders ganged and grouped, which, along with the amazing matrix window, turns the AES-32 into a powerful and easy-to-use redistributor, patchbay, router, converter, and splitter. The hardware-based mixer is fully MIDI-controllable. Furthermore, the DSP hardware calculates RMS and peak level meters for all 48 audio channels, with no measurable CPU load.

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.
