RME offers several Expansion Boards, that add more or other I/O ports to the internal cards of the Hammerfall, HDSP, HDSPe and DIGI96 series. The OPTO-X replaces the standard coaxial MADI I/O of the HDSPe MADI FX by an optical MADI I/O. The AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO add additional analog inputs and outputs of true studio quality to the HDSP 9632 and the HDSPe AIO. The Word Clock Module WCM adds a word clock input and two outputs in professional quality to the HDSP 9632, HDSPe RayDAT and the HDSPe AIO.
HDSP 9632 / HDSPE AIO
One AI4S-192 AIO and one AO4S-192 AIO can be connected simultaneously, for a maximum of 6 analog inputs and outputs. One TEB can be connected to the internal ADAT ports. The WCM adds one word clock input and two outputs. All options can be used at the same time.
Up to two TEBs can be used simultaneously.
HAMMERFALL DSP MULTIFACE / DIGIFACE
Multiface and Digiface use the Hammerfall DSP PCI card. This card has no internal inputs or outputs. Therefore no Expansion Boards can be used.
AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO: 4-Channel analog I/O modules with 192 kHz support
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.
