MadiXtreme is a family of multichannel PCIe audio cards for Mac and PC offering 64 or 128 channel digital audio interfaces using Fibre Optic MADI. MadiXtreme delivers digital audio input and output for your DAW, console or router via convenient and lossless optical MADI and is the perfect partner product for SSL’s Alpha-Link audio converters. Featuring our revolutionary PCIe-Core Audio Pipeline technology, MadiXtreme is one of the first audio devices to take full advantage of the high speeds and incredible bandwidth offered by the PCIe bus on modern computers. The drivers are fully multi-client capable (allowing several applications to simultaneously access the device) and allow multiple cards per system.
With one optical MADI connector for 64 simultaneous I/Os, the MADI Xtreme 64 is the ideal interface for the SSL Alpha-Link MADI AX or SSL Alpha-Link MADI SX. MADI Xtreme 64 is also the perfect partner for MADI equipped consoles, live recording, installations and broadcast servers.
With two optical MADI connectors for 128 simultaneous I/Os, the MadiXtreme 128 can be connected to two SSL Alpha-Link MADI AX or SSL Alpha-Link MADI SX at the same time. Both MADI ports can also be used as redundant multichannel feeds and in applications that need a high number of I/Os in recording, mixing or playout.
MadiXtreme supports a huge variety of applications through its legendary SSL Soundscape Family Drivers. The drivers are fully multi-client capable (allowing several applications to simultaneously access the device)
and allow seamless multi-card configurations (up to 6 Cards per System if enough PCIe Slots are available).
