Due to the nature of the products we sell, we operate a strict fraud screening process and therefore we are only able to deliver to the billing address.

In the event of a delay, we will contact you either by email or telephone as soon as reasonably possible.

While 99% of UK locations are valid for next day/Saturday delivery, there are a few remote locations which are not covered.

Synthax Audio (UK) cannot deliver outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland*.

*RME products cannot be shipped to the Republic of Ireland.

Missed Deliveries

If you are not in to receive the order at the time delivery is attempted, a card will normally be left to notify you of the missed delivery attempt. This will allow you to either telephone the courier company to arrange a re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it from your local courier depot or Royal Mail sorting office. For security reasons, all items require a signature.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, multiple failed delivery attempts), then we will inform you immediately by email as soon as we receive the item. From this point forth, you will be given a choice whether you wish us to re-dispatch the item or cancel the order. Please refer to our Cancellations & 14 Day Returns Procedure for more details. For items where delivery failed through no fault of Synthax Audio (UK), you will be liable for the original shipping charge, any courier surcharges and any subsequent delivery charges.

Late Deliveries or Dispatch

We are able to ship almost every order in the specified timescale. However, in very rare circumstances there can be an unforeseen delay. If this does happen, we will make it our priority to get your order dispatched from our warehouse as soon as reasonably possible.

There are also rare cases, beyond our control, when the delivery company itself has a problem which causes a delay in transit. In these situations we will do our utmost to liaise with the relevant delivery company to ensure delivery is completed as swiftly as possible.

Consequential Loss for Late Deliveries

If a delivery is late, then we will provide a refund of any delivery fee that we charged you. We do not provide financial compensation to cover consequential losses, e.g. for time taken off work to receive a delivery, or if the item is intended as a gift and you have to purchase the same item from a more expensive retailer.

Description

Designed for the Next Decade - RME’s first preamp for Audio Network

The RME 12Mic features twelve microphone and line-level inputs with digital, no-compromise, studio-quality conversion.

Remote-controllable gains, integrated MADI and AVB connectivity, plus a multitude of additional functionality combine to make the 12Mic a future-proof, next-generation recording and audio networking device.

 

Twelve transparent mic preamps for exceptional conversion performance

The PAD-free microphone input stages have a 75 dB gain range and accept signals of up to +18 dBu. On the converter side, the 12Mic shines with an outstanding signal-to-noise ratio on all channels.

All twelve front-facing XLR connections accept microphone and line-level signals, whilst the first four connections also accept TRS connectors, with switchable high impedance (Hi-Z) for instruments.

Connectivity & Features

 

MADI & ADAT for maximum flexibility

Both coaxial and optical (via an SFP module) MADI I/O is available for independent or redundant operation, and can be used for daisy-chaining, merging and converting MADI signals at incredibly low latency.

Three optical ADAT outputs provide up to 24 channels of audio at single speed (for example, a combination of microphone inputs, MADI signals and AVB signals), or 12 output channels at 96 kHz sampling rate, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of audio interfaces.

Additionally, the ADAT ports can also be used to send monitor mixes from the AVB or MADI inputs to existing DACs/headphone amps.

 

AVB Audio Networking - 2 fully redundant network ports

For the first time, RME offers an AVB device with two fully redundant network ports, based on the recommendations of MILAN.

The RME AVB Core has meticulously implemented the IEEE standards for audio-streaming, discovery and control, allowing RME devices to be both discovered and fully controlled by any AVB controller, and making vendor-specific control protocols a thing of the past.

Any signal reaching the 12Mic can be routed and streamed over a network with fixed latency and guaranteed bandwidth - no switch configuration required!

Plug’n’play - rapid user interaction

Control all device states directly from the front panel with an encoder and buttons for convenient, direct access to all features.

RME AVB devices can also be fully remote controlled via a web-interface on any network link (including wirelessly over Wi-Fi), allowing for the rapid creation of gain groups, phantom power switching, and routing of signals to headphones for monitoring.

The integrated routing matrix allows for quick routing of any analogue inputs straight to the headphone output, as well as all digital signals and AVB streams. As such, problem-solving of signals, clocking, connectivity or other issues is both simple and straight-forward! 


Multiple layers of redundancy make the 12Mic a perfect companion
for any professional live sound application.

 

Optional RME MADI SF Module (Optical)

Optional: RME MADI SFP Module

The RME 12Mic's MADI I/O can be expanded via the optional SFP module, increasing the MADI channel count to a maximum of 256 channels and offering MADI redundant operation.

 

SteadyClock FS - Reference class Digital Clocking

In digital audio the clock frequency is an essential factor, creating and sustaining the correlation between the audio bits and the time reference. Unfortunately, the clock frequency is not always as stable as desired. The 12Mic offers full SteadyClock FS performance for lowest jitter and highest jitter immunity.

Excellent performance in all clock modes and High Quality Analogue Conversion to hear your mix as it is. Digital format conversion in RME products is performed without any loss or degredation, and SteadyClock FS ensures your sonic image will never experience degredation. This helps to optimize recordings and mixes because the soundstage has more depth and clarity.
