The only connection UB MADI needs to get a MADI stream in and out of your PC or Mac is USB 2.0.
Reliable, portable and takes up minimal space – perfect for a high performance location recording or virtual sound check system. UB MADI is compatible with virtually all Windows or Macintosh® computers with an Intel® Core™ Duo or better CPU. Recording and/or playing back 48 channels of 24 bit audio requires a hard disk or solid state drive with reasonable performance and minimal fragmentation. DiGiCo provides a high performance, ultra-low-latency driver for both Windows and Macintosh.
UB MADI can receive the first 48 channels of any AES10-compliant MADI stream, as well as coaxial AES3 (AES/EBU) stereo audio.
