RME Hammerfall


HDSP 9652 PCI Card

Like the original Hammerfall, the RME HDSP 9652 PCI Card offers 3 x ADAT optical I/O, ADAT-Sync In, SPDIF I/O and word clock I/O. Additionally, there are 2 MIDI I/Os and TotalMix, a DSP-based realtime mixer/router.

The HDSP 9652 interface's Secure BIOS Technology allows hardware updates via software/driver without any risk. And thanks to its unique Zero CPU Load technology, Hammerfall DSP guarantees highest performance and lowest latency on both notebooks and desktops!

Hammerfall also supports Expansion Boards (EXB). 2 internal ADAT inputs and 2 internal ADAT outputs allow you to realize up to 16 analog inputs, 16 analog outputs, or up to 2 TDIF ports directly inside the computer.

Supported sample rates: 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, variable

8 buffer sizes/latencies available: 1.5 ms, 3 ms, 6 ms, 12 ms, 23 ms, 46 ms, 93 ms, 186 ms
