Ft. Lauderdale, FL (February 14, 2017)—Synthax, Inc. has announced the “extremely compact” RME Digiface USB Portable Digital Audio Interface to the American marketplace.

The unit features four optical ADAT/SPDIF I/O and a high-quality analog line/phones output via TRS for Mac and PC USB 2 devices.

The Digiface USB boasts 32 channels of I/O, while the analog output hosts channels 33 and 34, and can be used freely in conjunction with RME’s included TotalMix FX real-time digital mixing software. Notably, the unit is bus-powered—no external power supply is required for the unit.

Each single optical port on the Digiface USB can use either ADAT optical (up to 8 channels) or S/PDIF (stereo). While the inputs adapt automatically to the incoming signal format, the outputs can be individually switched between ADAT and S/PDIF operation.

The unit also supports both SMUX and SMUX4; as such, an 8-channel audio stream at 192 kHz can be accommodated via 4 x S/PDIF or ADAT on both the inputs and outputs.

The Digiface USB interface is now available for purchase at $499 street.
