The mobile audio interface is based on the well-proven Digiface Dante, but features a RAVENNA module developed by DirectOut.
The device allows the transfer of a total of 128 audio channels from RAVENNA and optionally MADI via a single USB 3.0 port. RME thus expands its Digiface series with a powerful RAVENNA model for USB and standalone operation.
The combination of DirectOut's RAVENNA implementation with RME's proven drivers, provides a reliable and flexible network audio interface. The extensive routing and monitoring (including the built-in headphone output) can be controlled via the DSP-based TotalMix FX. On the network side, the interface features a full-featured RAVENNA stack with support for AES67 and ST2110-30/31 as well as redundant audio-over-IP streaming according to ST2022-7. Furthermore, the interface can also be used as a mobile 64-channel RAVENNA/MADI converter without USB connection to a computer. The coaxial MADI port can also be configured as word clock sync I/O.
The RME Digiface Ravenna will be available in the 4th quarter 2022 at a price of CHF 1979.
