MADI-USB2.0 Digital I/O

Order Code: UBMADI
Our Price: $1,149.00

Playback and record a rock-solid MADI stream, 48 channels simultaneous I/O via USB 2.0, with DiGiCo UB MADI and your Mac or PC.

UB MADI is fully hot-pluggable. Audio flows within 4 seconds of the device being plugged in and is bus-powered - even if you’re driving signals over 100m of cable.

UB MADI is small, light and robust. Using a strong USB-B type socket and standard cabling, UB MADI is reliable and portable and takes up minimal space – perfect for a high performance location recording or virtual sound check system.

48 channels = Compact Massive

DiGiCo has managed to deliver a great channel count without sacrificing latency, quality or reliability. The ground breaking performance of the "SD7-derived FPGA and on-board 500MHz dualcore CPU", coupled with the capability of USB 2.0, means the sweet spot for an audio interface is 48 channels of IO simultaneously (full-duplex at 48KHz only).

As UB MADI is fully digital end-to-end and isn’t reliant on USB’s data clock for timing, jitter is not an issue. All audio data is recovered and input clock tolerance massively exceeds the AES minimum specification.
