Ft. Lauderdale, FL (October 7, 2016)���RME’sOctaMic XTC, a microphone, line and instrument preamp, hi-end A/D converter, digital patchbay, monitoring device, and format converter, has gotten two new updates—new firmware and an updated MADIface driver—which now allow direct connection of the unit with Windows computers.
Prior to the new firmware and driver updates, the OctaMic XTC was only compatible with Mac OS X and iOS operating systems. These new updates—available on RME’s website—add compatibility with Windows computers, enabling the OctaMic XTC to work in a wider range of studio environments. The OctaMic XTC can now be used as an audio interface with 24 channels input and output under Windows, with both WDM and ASIO.
RME’s firmware version 47 adds some additional Alternate Settings for multichannel support at higher sample rates along with ASIO performance. MADIface driver version 0.9573 adds the OctaMic XTC for use with WDM devices, full WDM configuration (stereo, multi-channel and speaker) capability, as well as ASIO buffer size settings. The OctaMic XTC can now be used without an additional audio interface as a multi-capable I/O unit on any working desk, directly via USB.
Current owners of the OctaMic XTC can obtain the new firmware and MADIface driver via the following links:
