RME Audio Digiface Dante
24 Bit / 192kHz, 256 channel Hi-Performance USB 3.0 Audio Interface, Dante I/O, MADI Coaxial I/O
Manufacturer part number:
A lightweight, portable audio interface, combining Dante network connectivity and features with everything that RME is famous for: USB 3, MADI, TotalMix FX and outstanding options in both USB and stand-alone operation.
Digiface Dante uses RME’s well-known USB driver for Windows and macOS, with lowest latency and industry leading stability, and is equipped with the latest TotalMix FX for flexible routing or mixing operations. High quality phones output offers a quick listen to any audio channel, but can also be used as line output to provide an additional analog stereo mixdown.
Two BNC sockets for word clock I/O are switchable to MADI I/O, with up to 64 channels. The total sum of Dante and MADI, 128 channels, are transferred via USB 3.0 and handled via both Dante control software and RME’s TotalMix FX, for full and struggle-free control of all audio. Please note that Dante has the same channel count limitation as MADI - the total number of channels is halfed at Double Speed (32 + 32 @ 96 kHz), and again halfed at Quad Speed (16 + 16 channels @ 192 kHz).
Equipped with two banks of redundant network ports, the Digiface Dante is more than just an audio interface. It also offers the functionality of a switch, connecting up to 4 network lines.
Used without USB the Digiface Dante automatically turns into a 64-channel Dante / MADI converter. The analog stereo output can be preconfigured to send out a mix of exactly those channels that are needed.
TotalMix FX and TotalMix Remote
Like all the latest RME interfaces, the Digiface Series also includes the powerful digital real-time mixer TotalMix FX. It allows for practically unlimited mixing and routing operations, with all inputs and playback channels simultaneously, to any hardware outputs.
The Digiface Series includes a dedicated Control Room section with Talkback, Main/Phones, fader groups, mute groups, complete remote controllability via Mackie or OSC protocol, and much more. The Digiface Series does not support DSP based effects (FX) like EQ or reverb.
Additionally RME’s latest software, TotalMix Remote, enhances the power of RME interfaces by enabling remote control via iOS, PC or Mac. With a straightforward set up process — simply enter the IP address of the computer you would like to control with TotalMix Remote and get going — users can quickly adjust any aspect of TotalMix FX on a host system while walking around the studio with their tablet, or from a control room located elsewhere in the facility.
