Pre-order your RME Digiface Dante 256 Channel 192kHz USB Audio Interface - not currently in stock

The Digiface Dante is a lightweight, portable audio interface, combining Dante network connectivity and features with everything that RME is famous for: USB 3, MADI, TotalMix FX and outstanding options in both USB and stand-alone operation.

Audinate’s Dante protocol combines with the industry-renowned reliability of RME Audio devices

Dante is an audio over IP protocol by Audinate. The Digiface Dante is a USB 3.0 from/to Dante interface, adding an external and fully mobile option to the internally used Dante PCIe card. Digiface Dante uses RME's matured MADIface Series driver for Windows and macOS, with lowest latency and industry leading stability. Equipped with the latest TotalMix FX it can not only route, but also mix as many independent submixes as outputs are available. The included high quality phones output offers a quick listen to any audio channel, but can also be used as line output to provide an additional analog stereo mixdown. Equipped with the largest Dante module 64 channel can be sent and received via network.

RME made the two BNC sockets for word clock I/O switchable to MADI I/O, with up to 64 channels. The total sum of Dante and MADI, 128 channels, are transferred via USB 3.0 and handled via both Dante control software and RME's TotalMix FX, for full and struggle-free control of all audio.

Explore new Ways to transport Audio

Equipped with two banks of redundant network ports, the Digiface Dante is more than just an audio interface. It also offers the functionality of a switch, connecting up to 4 network lines, removing the need for further switches to distribute and collect network lines, or offers redundancy operation with 2-port connectivity for both the primary and secondary network.

Used without USB the Digiface Dante automatically turns into a 64-channel Dante / MADI converter. The analog stereo output can be preconfigured to send out a mix of exactly those channels that are needed. Full network redundancy and switch functionality are also available. With USB bus power operation and an external power supply connection a stable and redundant power supply is ensured. As Dante has become AES67 compatible, the Digiface Dante supports another format on the network side for even greater flexibility and more applications.

TotalMix FX and TotalMix Remote

Like all the latest RME interfaces, the Digiface Series also includes the powerful digital real-time mixer TotalMix FX. It allows for practically unlimited mixing and routing operations, with all inputs and playback channels simultaneously, to any hardware outputs.

The Digiface Series includes a dedicated Control Room section with Talkback, Main/Phones, fader groups, mute groups, complete remote controllability via Mackie or OSC protocol, and much more. The Digiface Series does not support DSP based effects (FX) like EQ or reverb.

Additionally RME’s latest software, TotalMix Remote, enhances the power of RME interfaces by enabling remote control via iOS, PC or Mac. With a straightforward set up process — simply enter the IP address of the computer you would like to control with TotalMix Remote and get going — users can quickly adjust any aspect of TotalMix FX on a host system while walking around the studio with their tablet, or from a control room located elsewhere in the facility.

 

DigiCheck - Test, Measurement and Analysis Tool for Mac & Windows

The Interface comes with RME's unique software tool box for metering, testing, measuring and analyzing digital audio streams. On Mac OS X provides unique functions and features of the spectral analysis of the data calculated in hardware level right through to sophisticated multi-channel level meter. On Windows, an additional multi-track recorder and the display of playback data from an audio software are also available.

TotalMix FX - Mixing/Routing with superior features for Studio and Live Work

Since 2001 TotalMix added unlimited routing and mixing to RME‘s audio interfaces. Its unique capability to create as many independent submixes as output channels available turned it into the most flexible and powerful mixer of its kind.

RME USB - Transport audio with lowest latency and industry leading stability
