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.
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.
An easy to handle ribbon cable connects the newly developed optional AI4S-192 and AO4S-192. These analog expansion boards having one bracket with 4 stereo TRS jacks offer the same performance as the on-board stereo analog I/O of the HDSP 9632: up to 192 Khz, balanced and 3 different reference levels. With this a maximum of 6 inputs and/or outputs can be achieved.
HDSP 9632 also supports the existing Expansion
Boards (EXB). An internal ADAT input and an internal ADAT output allow for up to 14 analog inputs, 14 analog outputs, or the usage of a TDIF interface, directly inside the
If you can
THINK it, you can DO it with the HDSP9632!
About now, you're probably wondering "Just what monster capabilities does the HDSP9632 have?" We'll tell you... Take a look at these incredible combos and imagine the possibilities!
Our recommendation for a killer combo:
HDSP 9632 + WCM + AI44s-192 + AO4s-192 + TEB = all operational at the same time, occupying 1 PCI and 4 more bracket slots within the PC - There's no stopping now!
These are some of the features of the HDSP 9632:
stereo analog in- and output, 192 kHz/24 bit, > 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
- 1 Breakout cable for coaxial
- Up to 16 I/Os can be used
- 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
- 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 Meter Bridge: Scalable
level meter with Peak- and RMS calculation in hardware
4.1 for Windows: Spectral Analyser, professional level meter for 2,
8, or 16 channels, Vector Audio Scope, various other audio analysis tools.
- Drivers: Windows 2000/XP
(full ASIO multi-client operation of MME, GSIF 2.0 and ASIO 2.0), Mac OS X (Core Audio, Core MIDI).
HDSP 9632 debuts SteadyClock, a newly developed clock technology, combining professional features like maximum jitter suppression at full varipitch capabilities and software controlled sample rates.
The optional 9632 Word
Clock Module provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and
two word clock outputs via BNC jacks. 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 realtime 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.
