How to handle a legend? Create a new!

The RME HDSP Multiface II is not only multi because of the many different interface formats supported, but also multi-Channel! The small box using half the space of a 19" rack includes outstanding power and extensive features.

Based on RMEs award-winning Hammerfall technology and equipped with the latest circuit designs of the Fireface 800, the Multiface II offers ADAT optical I/O, SPDIF I/O, MIDI I/O, word clock I/O and a separate hi-power monitor output. On top there are 8 analog inputs and outputs, balanced and 24-bit/96kHz. All this can be used on laptops as well as on desktop computers with lowest latency and minimal CPU load.

Features:

Of course there are a lot typical RME features on board of the unit:
  • 8 x analog line I/O, 24-Bit/96kHz, SNR 111 dBA, 1/4" TRS jacks
  • 1 x ADAT digital I/O
  • 1 x SPDIF digital I/O
  • 1 x Word clock I/O (BNC)
  • 1 x MIDI I/O, 16 channels high-speed MIDI
  • 1 x hi-power analog line/headphone output, separate output for independent submix
  • Hardware level calculation: freely scalable level meters, peak and RMS calculation without CPU load
  • DIGICheck, RMEs unique metering - and analyse tool
  • TotalMix: 720 channel mixer with 40 bit internal resolution. MIDI remote controllable.
  • S/MUX poured in hardware: 4 channels 24-Bit/96kHz for record and playback via ADAT optical

... and numerous other features found already in the Hammerfall series. And all this for an unbeatable price!

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/96kHz analog line output, also usable with headphones, and one MIDI I/O.

The rear of the Multiface II shows unrivalled connectivity: 8 analog line I/Os on 1/4" TRS jacks (balanced, 24-Bit/96kHz), ADAT optical I/O (switchable to SPDIF optical), SPDIF I/O coaxial, word clock I/O and MIDI I/O. Don't settle for less!

The headphone output in hi-power technology offers high levels, even with low level headphones. Hence the headphone is direct usable with ASIO Direct Monitoring.

Digital I/Os: One ADAT optical I/O provides eight more channels. The coaxial SPDIF I/O is complete AES/EBU compatible.

The Multiface II can be used with laptops as well as desktop computers. The connection to laptops is achieved via a CardBus card or an ExpressCard, the connection to desktops via a PCI card or PCI Express card. These interfaces are sold separately.

Settings:

Just click on the hammer symbol in the systray of the taskbar and the settings dialog of the Multiface comes up. The clear structured, easy to understand window plus the unique informative status windows for input signal, clock mode, sample rate and time code make your work with Hammerfall DSP System to a real pleasure. With a simple mouse click you gain access to the full power of your system.

When working with several digital sources it is not only necessary to know if these are properly locked, but also if they are totally synchronized. RME's exclusive SyncCheck checks all input signals and displays their actual state, and thanks to our new Intelligent Clock Control concept you have all clocks and states under control - with ease.

Regular firmware and driver updates ensure the Multiface II to stay at the top of today's audio interfaces. The latest addition, Disconnect mode, lets you use the unit as stand-alone AD/DA-converter, digital format converter, analog/digital mixer or submixer, and much more.

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.
