    RME MADIface XT - USB 3.0 & PCIe Compatible Audio Interface

    Notify me when this product is available:

    RME’s award winning MADIface XT, offers a staggering 196 input channels and 198 out. It’s USB 3.0 and PCIe compatible (for all those 5.1 MacPro owners), and comes with 2 ultra clean RME mic pre-amps, a headphone amp and 2 x XLR monitor outputs, all packed into a rugged 1 U half-rack sized box!


        The RME MADIface XT is capable of transferring digital audio data directly into a computer, from any device equipped with a MADI interface. Analog sources can be connected to a stereo analog input, and 2 stereo analog outputs add full monitoring connectivity. Installation is simple, even for the inexperienced user, thanks to the latest Plug and Play technology. The numerous unique features and well thought-out configuration dialogs put the MADIface XT at the very top of the range of digital audio interfaces.

        TotalMix FX

        The MADIface XT includes a powerful digital real-time mixer, the Hammerfall DSP mixer, based on RME’s unique, sample-rate independent TotalMix technology. It allows for practically unlimited mixing and routing operations, with all inputs and playback channels simultaneously, to any hardware outputs.

        Here are some typical applications for TotalMix:

        Setting up delay-free submixes (headphone mixes). The MADIface XT allows for up to 99 (!) fully independent stereo submixes. On an analog mixing desk, this would equal 198 (!) Aux sends.

        Unlimited routing of inputs and outputs (free utilisation, patchbay functionality).

        Distributing signals to several outputs at a time. TotalMix offers state-of-the-art splitter and distributor functions.

        Simultaneous playback of different programs using only one stereo output. The ASIO multiclient driver handles several programs at the same time, even identical playback channels. TotalMix provides the means to mix and monitor these on a single stereo output, even when originating on different playback channels.

        Mixing of the input signal to the playback signal (complete ASIO Direct Monitoring). RME not only is the pioneer of ADM, but also offers the most complete implementation of the ADM functions.

        Integration of external devices. Use TotalMix to insert external effects devices, be it in the playback or in the record path. Depending on the current application, the functionality equals insert or effects send and effects return, for example as used during real-time monitoring when adding some reverb to the vocals.

        Every single input channel, playback channel and hardware output features a Peak and RMS level meter, calculated in hardware (hardware output is Peak only). These level displays are very useful to determine the presence and routing destinations of the audio signals.

        Notes on USB 3.0 Operation

        The special features and possible problems of using USB 3 are described in more detail in the manual.

        Current Compatibility Information:

        Fully compatible to Intel's USB 3 implementation, which - on current Windows and Mac computers - is part of the chipset. USB 3 sockets that are connected via an internal cable (not directly soldered onto the motherboard) can cause transmission errors. These are shown in the Settings dialog.

        Fully compatible to AMD's USB 3 implementation. USB 3 sockets that are connected via an internal cable (not directly soldered onto the motherboard) can cause transmission errors. These are shown in the Settings dialog.

        Fully compatible to Fresco USB 3. This rarely used chip can be found for example on the Sonnet Tango 3.0 PCIe card.

        Compatible to NEC / Renesas USB 3. Real-world performance and error-free operation depend on the firmware version, driver version and the PCB layout of the respective extension card/motherboard.

        ASMedia - not compatible.

        Etron EJ168A - not compatible.

        Texas TUSB7340 - not compatible.

        Via VL800/805 - not compatible.
