72-Channel PCI Express Card with ADAT, SPDIF and AES I/O
A multi-channel, multi-format and multi-task tool in stunning professional quality, the ideal solution from recording up to the final mastering.
For the first time, even SPDIF (phono) and AES/EBU (XLR) are simultaneously operational due to separated hardware and record/playback devices. RayDAT offers no less than 4 x ADAT optical I/O, SPDIF I/O and AES/EBU I/O. That’s a whopping 36 channels of inputs and outputs. On top, there are 2 MIDI I/Os and TotalMix, RME’s unsurpassed DSP-based real-time mixer/router, with hardware-calculated level metering and complete MIDI remote capability. HDSPe RayDAT also supports the optional TCO for synchronization to timecode (LTC/video).
Internal ADAT inputs and outputs allow to add up to two TDIF ports directly inside the computer via RME’s optional expansion boards.
HDSPe RayDAT is the newly developed PCI Express version of the HDSP 9652. A genuine PCI Express core consequently takes full advantage of the new format, achieving significant performance gains in multitrack audio. Thanks to RME’s secure flash update technology, firmware improvements, adjustments, and bugfixes can be installed easily at any time.

WORKS WITH: HDSPE RAYDAT, HDSPE AIO, HDSP 9632
The Word Clock Module (WCM) provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and two word clock outputs (BNC connectors). Both outputs have their own driver stages, providing an extremely low jitter signal. A push switch activates 75 Ohms termination for the hi-impedance input. SteadyClock, part of the PCI card, guarantees an excellent performance in all clock modes. Its highly efficient jitter suppression refreshes and cleans up any clock signal, and provides it as reference clock at the two outputs.
Installation is done in a convenient manner using the supplied bracket. No PCI slot on the motherboard is required. The module is internally connected via a 10-pin connector and a flat ribbon cable to the PCI card. Thanks to several LEDs (power, termination, LOCK) and the highly integrated concept of installation, first operation and usage are simple even for the inexperienced user.
More information could be found in the HDSP 9632 WCM manual.
TDIF Expansion: HDSPe RayDAT can provide up to two TDIF interfaces when using the TEB module (no longer available).
