RME ADI-648 Converter

The ADI-648 is a sixty-four channel format converter from MADI to ADAT and vice versa. MADI handles sixty-four channels of 24-bit audio at sampling frequencies up to 48kHz and thirty-two channels up to 96kHz. All channels are transferred across a single cable, using either a coaxial (BNC) or optical network cable. The ADAT channels are provided via eight TosLink optical inputs and outputs, respectively.

Amongst other applications, the unit can serve as an MADI front-end for RME’s Hammerfall and Hammerfall DSP series. An easy-configurable eight-channel 16×16 Matrix Router can assign any of the outputs, which are divided into eight-channel blocks, to any eight-channel input block, both on the ADAT and the MADI side. In addition to the routing within the MADI/ADAT conversion, the unit also performs splitting and routing within the same format.

When the single-space rack-mount unit is serving as a format converter, cable lengths of more than 100 meters can be achieved. The ADI-642 accepts both fifty-six and sixty-four channel standards as well as 96k frame at its input and can be set to generate both these formats at its output. This way the ADI-648 can serve as an interface between otherwise incompatible MADI devices.

 

Key Features

  • Sixty-four channel MADI/ADAT format converter
  • MADI redistributor, patchbay and router
  • Extensive status displays give information about Lock and Sync states and the physical quality of the incoming signal
  • A fully automatic input selection between optical and coaxial input offers a useful redundancy mode for critical applications
  • Supplies word clock in Single and Double Speed, distributes Double Wire 96kHz signals into the MADI data stream, is also capable of double MADI rate (96k
  • Frame) or per Sample Split (S/MUX) to the ADAT ports
  • SyncAlign and SyncCheck technologies ensure perfect synchronization and clear detection of errors
  • Multiple units can be stacked and operated sample-aligned, using word clock.
  • All settings are stored when the unit is switched off
  • Sixteen MIDI channels can be transferred across MADI even with 64 audio channels
  • The device can be fully remote controlled and configured via MIDI and all status displays can be queried through MIDI
  • Each unit in a multiple-unit setup can be given a separate ID, allowing separate remote control of the devices utilizing only a single MIDI channel
