RME begins shipping the new OctaMic XTC

The OctaMic XTC features an advanced eight-channel mic/line/instrument preamplifier with 192 kHz/24 bit A/D conversion and AutoSet functionality, fully MIDI remote controllable via USB, DIN and MADI.

All digital in- and outputs can be easily patched and routed or visualised on a comfortable high-resolution colour display, turning the XTC into a full-blown digital format converter.

On the one hand the OctaMic XTC is the perfect extension to the Fireface UFX to add eight fully integrated microphone channels, multiple formats of digital audio, and much more, while on the other hand the OctaMic XTC can be used as a standalone interface to record audio on Apple OS/iOS devices connected via the integrated driverless class compliant mode.

The OctaMic XTC’s built-in connections include:

  • 8 x Mic/Line preamps, digitall controlled (4 x PAD, 4 x Hi-Z switchable)
  • 2 x Stereo analogue outputs
  • 4 x AES/EBU I/O
  • 1 x ADAT I/O (2 x out S/MUX)
  • 1 x MADI I/O optical
  • 1 x MIDI I/O DIN
  • 1 x MIDI I/O USB
  • 1 x MIDI over MADI
