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.
