HDSP 9632

32-Channel PCI Card with Multi-Format I/O

RME presents the world's most versatile PCI Audio Interface - the Hammerfall DSP 9632. This card makes the dream of an All-In-One solution for every possible application come true.

TotalMix FX

As usual, RME has not made any compromises: Latest 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters with more than 110 dB signal to noise ratio, all inputs and outputs simultaneously operational, easy-to-install optional hi-quality analog expansion boards, the famous TotalMix, a newly developed sensational clock section with maximum jitter suppression of external clock signals - all this combines into a 'soundcard' that the world has been waiting for so long. A PCI Express version (HDSPe AIO) is available.

Features


The HDSP 9632 provides unique features:

  • Balanced stereo analog in- and output, 24-Bit/192kHz, > 110 dB SNR
  • Optional analog expansion boards with 4 balanced in- or outputs
  • All analog I/Os capable of 192 kHz, constant number of available channels
  • 1 ADAT digital I/O, supporting 96 kHz S/MUX operation
  • 1 SPDIF digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 Breakout cable for coaxial SPDIF*
  • Up to 16 I/Os can be used simultaneously!
  • 1 Stereo headphone output, parallel to the analog out, additional level settings
  • 1 MIDI I/O with 16 channels of hi-speed MIDI via breakout cable
  • DIGICheck, RMEs unique metering- and analysing tool
  • HDSP Meter Bridge: freely scalable level meters, peak- and RMS calculation directly in hardware
  • TotalMix: 512 channel Mixer with 40 Bit internal resolution


* The HDSP 9632 ships in a basic version including two RCA/phono breakout cables (headphone: TRS jack). Therefore all analog I/Os and the SPDIF I/O are unbalanced. XLR breakout cables are available as an option (headphone: Neutrik TRS locking jack), turning analog and AES/EBU into balanced mode.

HDSP 9632 debuts SteadyClock (TM), a newly developed clock technology, combining professional features like maximum jitter suppression at full varipitch capabilities and software controlled sample rates.

Compared to the well-known DIGI96/8 series, the HDSP 9632 not only offers a further improved analog interface, but also all the features of the award-winning Hammerfall DSP series: All inputs and outputs simultaneously available, MIDI I/O and TotalMix, the DSP-based real-time mixer/router. Hardware updates through software and driver updates are risk-free thanks to the Secure BIOS Technology.

In short: The HDSP 9632 is the ultimate audio interface for PC or Mac, digital or analog.

 

Accessories

  • HDSP 9632: Analog breakout cable, balanced (BO9632XLRMKH)
  • HDSP 9632: Analog breakout cable, unbalanced (BO9632CMKH)
  • HDSP 9632: Digital breakout cable, SPDIF (BO9632)
  • HDSP 9632: Digital breakout cable, AES/EBU & SPDIF (BO968)

Optional Add-Ons

Analog Expansions: An easy to handle ribbon cable connects the optional AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO. These analog expansion boards having one bracket with 4 stereo TRS jacks: up to 192 Khz, balanced and 3 different reference levels. With this a maximum of 6 inputs and/or outputs can be achieved.

Word Clock Expansion: The optional 9632 Word Clock Module provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and two word clock outputs via BNC jacks.

TDIF Expansion: HDSP 9632 supports also the TEB TDIF-I/O-Module.

Expansion Boards Optional analog and digital I/Os.
