Designed to provide professional audio over digital networks, the RME 12Mic offers 12 channels of high-quality audio microphone preamps with MADI and ABV connections. You get preamps for mic, line-level, and instrument sources; preamps that can output digitally through a variety of different connections. It does this in a compact 1 RU housing and with the ability to control all of its routing capabilities wirelessly when configured into a wireless network.

Each of its 12 pad-free input stages offer a 75 dB range of transparent gain. You'll find four combination XLR-1/4" inputs and eight XLR inputs. Selecting among line level, mic level, or instrument level is made possible by the front-panel control menu or can be done wirelessly on any network link via the web interface.

On the digital side, you'll find BNC MADI I/O, three ADAT ports, MADI via an integrated SFP module, USB connectivity, and two Ethernet ports for AVB networking. MADI can be implemented for independent or redundant operation. The Ethernet ports are fully redundant.

Any signal can be routed over a network with a fixed latency to ensure steady playback. RME's SteadyClock FS also ensures precise synchronization among elements, giving you a performance free from jitter so your audio is as clear as it can be. The unit also features a redundant power supplies: use the DC input and the IEC VAC input, ensuring that accidental disconnection of either won't cause the 12Mic to shut off.

12 Transparent Mic Pres

The pad-free microphone input stages have a gain range of 75 dB, and accept signals of up to +18 dBu. On the conversion side, the unit provides a signal-to-noise ratio of 121.2 dBA on all channels. All twelve front-facing XLR connections accept microphone and line level signals, while the first four connections also accept TRS connectors, with a switchable impedance for instruments.

Preamp for Audio Networks

The RME 12Mic offers twelve microphone and line-level inputs with studio-quality digital conversion, remote-controllable gains, and integrated MADI and AVB connectivity.

MADI & ADAT

Both coaxial and optical (via an SFP module) MADI I/O is available for independent or redundant operation. The digital I/O can be used for daisy-chaining, merging, and converting MADI signals at low latency. 3 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. This ensures 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.

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 IEEE standards for audio streaming, discovery, and control, allowing RME devices to be both discovered and fully controlled by any AVB controller. Any signal reaching the 12Mic can be routed and streamed over a network with fixed latency and guaranteed bandwidth. No switch configuration is required.

Remote Controlled

Control all device states directly from the front panel 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 analog inputs straight to the headphone output, as well as all digital signals and AVB streams. This makes problem-solving for signals, clocking, connectivity, or other issues both simple and straight-forward.
