RME HDSP 9652 PCI Card

The RME HDSP 9652 PCI Card is a unique audio system, capable of transferring analog and digital audio data directly to a computer from practically any device. The 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, with hardware-calculated level metering and complete MIDI remote capability.

The RME HDSP 9652 PCI Card 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.

Thanks to its unique Zero CPU Load technology, the RME Hammerfall HDSP 9652 guarantees highest performance and lowest latency together with full flexibility!

The RME HDSP 9652's Secure BIOS Technology allows to perform hardware updates via software/driver without any risk.


Just click on the hammer symbol in the systray of the taskbar and the settings dialog of the RME 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. RMEs exclusive SyncCheck ® checks all input signals and displays their actual state, and thanks to our new Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) 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.
