RME Micstasy is an 8-Channel hi-end mic/line preamp and AD-converter combining typical RME features with a number of previously unseen features.
It can be used analog (Mic/Line In to Line Out) and digital (Mic/Line In to Digital Out), with both signal paths operating simultaneously. PLUS, it is fully remote-controllable via MIDI (also MIDI over MADI).
Micstasy allows for amplification and digitisation of ALL analogue signal sources. Be it high-level stage signals, typical studio signals, lower level and high-impedance instruments, or dynamic, condenser or ribbon microphones: Micstasy ‘understands’ them all.
Signals amplified by Micstasy are available at the analogue outputs for passing them on (making an expensive splitter box on stage obsolete). In a standard 19″ box with 2 unit height, the device offers numerous extraordinary features like Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) , SyncCheck ®, SteadyClock, TotalGain, AutoSet, MIDI over MADI, and remote control via MADI and MIDI.
The technologies known from other RME products like SyncCheck® ensure perfect synchronisation and clear detection of errors. Also multiple units can be stacked and operated sample-aligned, using word clock. All settings are stored when the unit is switched off.
RME’s SteadyClock(TM) guarantees excellent clock quality in any situation. Due to the highly efficient jitter reduction, the Micstasy’s AD-converters operate independently from the quality of the external clock signal, as if they are working with internal clock all the time. Additionally, Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) will retain the last valid sample frequency in case of a loss of the input signal.
