HDSP 9652 is the long-awaited successor of the well-known PCI card Project Hammerfall (DIGI9652). Like the original Hammerfall, HDSP 9652 offers 3 x ADAT optical I/O, ADAT-Sync In, SPDIF I/O and word clock I/O. On top, there are 2 MIDI I/Os and TotalMix, a DSP-based real-time mixer/router.
The HDSP 9652's Secure BIOS Technology allows to perform hardware updates via software/driver without any risk. And thanks to its unique 'Zero CPU Load' technology Hammerfall DSP guarantees highest performance and lowest latency on both notebooks and desktops!
Hammerfall also supports Expansion Boards (EXB). Two internal ADAT inputs and two internal ADAT outputs allow you to realize up to 16 analog inputs, 16 analog outputs, or up to two TDIF ports directly inside the computer.
3 x ADAT digital I/O, based on RME's reliable Bitclock PLL
1 x SPDIF digital I/O, based on RME's reliable DIGI96 technology
1 x Breakout cable for coaxial SPDIF operation
1 x Word clock I/O (BNC) on included expansion board
1 x ADAT Sync In (9-pin D-type) for sample accurate transfers
2 x MIDI I/O, 32 channels high-speed MIDI via breakout cable
HDSP Meter Bridge: freely scalable level meters, peak- and RMS calculation directly in hardware
TotalMix: 1352 channel mixer with 40 bit internal resolution
S/MUX poured in hardware: 12 channels 96 kHz/24 bit for record and playback on ADAT optical
...and numerous other features found already in the Hammerfall series. And all this for an unbeatable price!
The Hammerfall« DSP System comes with drivers for Windows 98/ME (MME with multi-client operation, ASIO 2.0, GSIF), Windows 2000/XP (full multi-client operation of MME, GSIF and ASIO 2.0), Mac OS 9.x (ASIO 2.0) and Mac OS X.
Just click on the hammer symbol in the systray of the taskbar and the settings dialog of the HDSP 9652 comes up. The clear structured, easy to understand window plus the unique informative status windows for input signal, clock mode, sample rate and time code make your work with Hammerfall DSP to a real pleasure. With a simple mouse click you gain access to the full power of your card.
When working with several digital sources it is not only necessary to know if these are properly locked, but also if they are totally synchronized. RME's exclusive SyncCheck checks all input signals and displays their actual state, and thanks to our new Intelligent Clock Control concept you have all clocks and states under control - with ease.
A display of the time code at the ADAT Sync-In port offers a quick check of the communication between external device and Hammerfall.

About Hammerfall DSP
Using the Hammerfall DSP System RME's world famous Hammerfall technology is available not only on desktop computers, but also on notebooks! It doesn't matter if Mac or PC: each portable computer having a CardBus interface can now be upgraded to a mobile High-End and high-speed audio system -- with up to 26 tracks and latencies down to 1.5 ms!
The new Hammerfall DSP System offers all its features both when used stationary or mobile: support for 96 kHz/24 bit, S/PDIF and ADAT optical, integrated mixer in TotalMix technology for complete ASIO 2.0 Direct Monitoring, independently to operate mixer desktop providing several submixes, DIGICheck in hardware for professional level metering with peak- and RMS values in broadcast quality, MIDI I/O and much more.
The Hammerfall DSP System includes fully developed and powerful drivers: Windows 98/ME/2000/XP (MME with multi-client operation, ASIO 2.0, GSIF) and MacOS (ASIO 2.0). The new hardware concept includes the possibility for hardware updates via software. Improvements and extensions of the hardware are thus possible without any problem, safety for the future (WDM, ASIO 3.0) included. Besides, the whole system supports hot-plugging. Card and I/O box can be connected or disconnected at any time without having to re-boot the computer.
RME's Hammerfall series is famous for its reliability, tremendous performance, high compatibility and the user-friendly design of hardware and drivers. The Hammerfall DSP System breaks into a new dimension of computer-based hard disk Recording, unsurpassed because of its numerous exciting functions and unique features.
