Add analog and multiformat digital I/O to your Mac/Windows computer with the RME HDSPe AIO Pro, a PCI Express audio interface that offers solid clocking, high-performance converters, and flexible inputs and outputs in a single PCIe slot. Utilizing technology from RME's top-shelf ADI-2 Pro AD/DA converter, the HDSPe AIO Pro delivers significant gains in signal-to-noise ratio performance while offering selectable reference levels and ultralow latency.

Between the card and its included breakout cables, there are eight channels of ADAT I/O, stereo AES/EBU and S/PDIF I/O, unbalanced stereo analog I/O, DIN 5-pin MIDI I/O, and a high-power headphone output, all simultaneously operational. The SteadyClock FS clock section ensures maximum jitter suppression of external clock signals along with low inherent jitter. Plus, optional modules can be used to add timecode and word clock connections for tight synchronization.

Successor of the HDSPe AIO
The HDSPe AIO Pro PCI Express interface card is the successor of the popular HDSPe AIO. The Pro version provides professional users in the fields of studio and broadcast with the same high channel count as well as analog/digital input and output variety of the HDSPe AIO. In terms of technical features, RME has completely reworked the HDSPe AIO Pro, defining the current state-of-the-art in PCI Express cards.
High-End Converter Technology
The HDSPe AIO Pro is based on the reference processors AK5572 and AK4490 derived from the high-end AD/DA converter ADI-2 Pro. The analog input range also uses the circuit design of the ADI-2 Pro (+24 / +19 / +13 / +4 dBu). In addition, RME has enhanced the outputs with additional reference levels (balanced: +24 / +19 / +13 / +4 dBu; unbalanced: +19 / +13 / +4 / -2 dBu) which allows even more versatile integration into audio systems. The HDSPe AIO Pro features a dedicated attenuator in the output section, resulting in an increased signal-to-noise ratio and a lower output impedance at low reference levels.
Transparent Headphone Output
A further highlight of the HDSPe AIO Pro is the newly developed, powerful, and extremely transparent headphone output. Thanks to mute relay including switchable output levels, there is no unwanted crackling noise at the headphone output and the analog line outputs when switching on the computer.
Analog and Digital Connectivity
  • Stereo analog input and output with four selectable reference levels
  • All analog I/Os capable of 24-bit / 192 kHz with a constant number of available channels
  • ADAT digital I/O, supporting 192 kHz via S/MUX4 operation
  • S/PDIF stereo digital I/O, capable of 192 kHz
  • AES/EBU stereo digital I/O, capable of 192 kHz
  • High-power headphone output with a separate D/A converter
  • MIDI I/O with 16 channels of high-speed MIDI
  • DIGICheck, RME's unique metering and analyzing tool
  • TotalMix FX, a 760-channel mixer with 42-bit internal resolution
  • Native PCI Express uses no PCI to PCI Express bridge
Breakout Cables
The HDSPe AIO Pro comes with a DB9 digital breakout cable and a DB15 analog breakout cable. The DB9 digital cable has RCA coaxial connections for S/PDIF and XLR connectors for AES/EBU. The DB15 analog cable has RCA coaxial connections for the unbalanced analog stereo line inputs and outputs, a 1/4" TRS headphone output, and DIN 5-pin connectors for MIDI I/O. A balanced XLR breakout cable (the RME BO9632XLRMKH) is available separately).
SteadyClock FS
Excellent performance in all clock modes and high-quality analog conversion let you hear your mix as it is, with ultralow jitter and impeccable jitter immunity.
DigiCheck
RME audio interfaces not only provide you with a professional digital audio interface, but also with a free available software tool: DigiCheck, for metering, testing, measuring, and analyzing digital audio streams.
Supports Optional Modules
  • Optional time code module (TCO) for external video/SMPTE synchronization
  • Optional word clock module (WCM) for wordclock input and output
