Musikmesse 2013: RME MADIface XT (Video)

World's first USB 3 interface

Ever since their creation in 1996, RME have been known for their top-quality sound and for their rock-solid performance, all a price that isn't out of the reach of the project studio owner. 

Their latest launch is a first in pro audio - a USB 3 audio interface. The move to USB 3 is on account of the massive data throughput afforded by the connection standard. The MADIface XT allows a total of 196 audio inputs and 198 audio outputs via two built-in microphone preamps and three MADI I/Os.

Here's a little more from RME:

The world's first USB 3.0 audio interface not only has 3 MADI I/Os with 64 channels each, but also 2 mic/line inputs, 2 XLR line and one stereo phones output, plus one AES/EBU I/O - a total of 196 audio inputs and 198 audio outputs. Plus several MIDI ports via USB, MADI and DIN. To use all this in a portable device with the typical RME performance, the XT uses external PCI Express and USB 3.0 to guarantee hi-speed data transfer. It also features TotalMix FX, can be used completely stand-alone, remote controlled via MIDI and much more.
