Click here to read the full review.
The RME Digiface Dante is RME’s latest audio interface and mobile format converter, a hassle-free, cost-effective Dante and MADI interface for use in modern audio networking, live, recording studios, broadcast and audio installations.
With a total of 256 channels over USB 3.0 (plus 1 x stereo headphone output), the Digiface Dante supports both Mac and Windows, enabling users of both platforms to connect to any existing Dante network. Using RME’s award-winning USB driver technology, the Digiface Dante achieves incredibly low-latency and very high-channel recording and playback simultaneously.
Sound On Sound magazine recently reviewed the Digiface Dante for their August 2019 issue. Among the standout points for SOS was the ability to run up to 128 channels each way (input and output); the exceptional latency (and buffer size down to 32 samples) thanks to the inclusion of Audinate’s Brooklyn II module; and the industry-standard RME reliability, with reviewer Hugh Robjohns ending his writeup, “As you’d expect of RME, the Digiface just does what it’s supposed to, reliably and consistently, and I found it a very elegant and effective way of accessing a test Dante network setup from my computers.”
“As you’d expect of RME, the Digiface just does
what it’s supposed to, reliably and consistently…”
Like all recent RME interfaces, the Digiface Dante also includes RME’s TotalMix FX software, providing you with full control over all incoming and outgoing audio channels. Summing, routing and mixing can all be managed via TotalMix FX, with highly accurate metering for all audio on the network. It’s like having an enhanced Dante Controller with the addition of metering and faders, which can be operated via Mac, PC or even wirelessly on a tablet (when used with RME’s TotalMix Remote software).
With the on-board headphone output, you can also monitor any channel, or even plug in a set of wireless IEMs and monitor from anywhere within the venue (especially when used alongside TotalMix Remote!).
The RME Digiface Dante also has an optional power supply, for using the interface in standalone mode. This means you can set up all your routings in TotalMix FX ahead of time, and simply insert the interface into the system to act as a digital mixer when needed.
Introduced in 2018, TotalMix Remote allows for the control of all RME audio interfaces (that use TotalMix FX) over a WiFi network. Whether you’re looking to control your interface wirelessly from another computer, or a Windows or iOS tablet; provide musicians with the ability to control their own individual monitor mixes; or simply need a separate display for metering all inputs, outputs and software playback channels, TotalMix Remote opens up a world of new possibilities.
What’s more, this new network capability can be used with any RME audio interface or soundcard that’s compatible with TotalMix FX, including devices dating all the way back to 2001!
TotalMix Remote is available as a free download to all RME interface owners, with support for Windows and Mac OS computers, and Windows and iOS tablets.
