RME presents the world's most versatile PCI Express audio interface - the HDSPe AIO. This card makes the dream of an All-In-One solution for every possible application come true. The Advanced-Input-Output interface shines with the latest 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters, with more than 112 dB signal to noise ratio. For the first time, all inputs and outputs are simultaneously operational, even SPDIF (phono) and AES/EBU (XLR). Additional hi-quality analog inputs and outputs can easily be added by favourably priced expansion boards. Of course TotalMix, the unsurpassed flexible routing mixer and SteadyClock, RME's sensational clock technology with maximum jitter suppression of external clock signals, are on board too. HDSPe AIO also supports the optional TCO for synchronization to timecode (LTC/video). All this combines into a professional 'soundcard' that the world has not seen before.


HDSPe AIO is the newly developed PCI Express version of the HDSP 9632. A newly developed genuine PCI Express core consequently takes full advantage of the new format, achieving significant performance gains in multitrack audio and lowest latency. Thanks to RME's secure flash update technology, firmware improvements, adjustments, and bugfixes can be installed easily at any time.

Features


The HDSPe AIO provides unique features:

  • Balanced* stereo analog in- and output, 24-bit/192kHz, > 112 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 192 kHz via S/MUX4 operation
  • 1 SPDIF digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 AES/EBU digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 Stereo headphone output, separate DA-converter and playback device
  • So up to 18 inputs and 20 outputs can be used simultaneously!
  • 1 MIDI I/O with 16 channels of hi-speed MIDI via breakout cable
  • DIGICheck, RME's unique metering- and analysing tool
  • TotalMix: 760 channel Mixer with 42 bit internal resolution
  • Native PCI Express - no PCI to PCI Express bridge used


* The HDSPe AIO ships in a basic version with analog RCA/phono breakout cables (headphone: TRS jack). Therefore all analog I/Os are unbalanced. An analog XLR breakout cable is available as option (headphone: Neutrik TRS locking jack), turning analog into balanced mode.

HDSPe AIO includes SteadyClock (TM), RME's own clock technology, combining professional features like maximum jitter suppression at full varipitch capabilities and software controlled sample rates.

Free Software for all RME Audio Interfaces

Included software:

DIGICheck for Windows: Spectral Analyser, professional level meter for 2, 8, or 20 channels, Vector Audio Scope, various other audio analysis tools.

Word Clock Module (WCM)

Wordclock Module

Works with: HDSPe RayDAT, HDSPe AIO, HDSP 9632

The Word Clock Module (WCM) provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and two word clock outputs (BNC connectors). Both outputs have their own driver stages, providing an extremely low jitter signal. A push switch activates 75 Ohms termination for the hi-impedance input. SteadyClock, part of the PCI card, guarantees an excellent performance in all clock modes. Its highly efficient jitter suppression refreshes and cleans up any clock signal, and provides it as reference clock at the two outputs.

Installation is done in a convenient manner using the supplied bracket. No PCI slot on the motherboard is required. The module is internally connected via a 10-pin connector and a flat ribbon cable to the PCI card. Thanks to several LEDs (power, termination, LOCK) and the highly integrated concept of installation, first operation and usage are simple even for the inexperienced user.

More information could be found in the HDSP 9632 WCM manual.

AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO: 4-Channel analog I/O modules with 192 kHz support

AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO

Works with: HDSPe AIO, HDSP 9632

These options for the HDSP 9632 and HDSPe AIO are analog expansion boards, designed as bracket with 4 stereo TRS jacks each. AI4S-192 AIO provides four servo-balanced inputs, AO4S-192 AIO provides four servo-balanced outputs. With this a maximum of 6 (including the stereo I/O of the card) inputs and/or outputs can be achieved.

The converters offer the same performance as the on-board stereo analog I/O of the HDSPe AIO: up to 192 kHz, balanced connection and the choice of three different reference levels, selected in the Settings dialog.

Both modules can be used single or in combination. The display of the channels in TotalMix changes accordingly.

Note: AI4S-192 and AO4S-192 (without the suffix AIO) do work only with the HDSP 9632. The current Expansion Boards with the suffix AIO work with both cards.
