About to order the RME Hammerfall 9632 Soundcard. What else do I need to order to have balanced I/O?
      #420912 - 14/02/07 10:09 AM
I am just about to get the above SC but I want to make sure that I can connect to my analogue mixing desk.

DO I need to order these two items to ensure that I have balanced I/O?

The Soundcard.

Breakout cable 1

Breakout cable 2

I think that the card comes with basic non balanced I/O. Just need confirmation on this.

As far as i can remember the card comes with a MIDI/SPDIF breakout cable.
(In the older Model [non HDSP] there was just the SPDIF breakout cable. Now that i upgraded over fleabay i didnt get the actual MIDI/SPDIF cable, hence the "AFAIK" ;-) )
So unless you really need the AES/EBU XLR connection i would leave that one and just get the "cable 2".

.... as an aside, are you sure RME are going to provide Vista 64-bit drivers for that card? Companies like Steinberg for example, have decided to "obsolete" the Midex rather than go to the bother of providing existing customers with new drivers.

Good point about vista drivers;

I would make 2 comments really in response;

1 My main reason for buying is this card is that it works well with Linux

2 I have no plans to touch vista for my DAW just yet. XP works fine so if aint broke why fix it?

To be fair to RME, they were one of the very first to get XP64 drivers out, and they supply the true Pro market, so it won't be long. Having said that, the DSP card were discontinued over five years ago, so it would be entirely understandable for them to cease support.... time for the flame/blame war to begin.

RME already have Vista compatible drivers for 32 & 64 bit in beta for the HDSP cards. They're at beta version 20 and the final non-beta versions should be out shortly. The HDSP 9632 is supported.
