The DMC-842 is both an 8-Channels AES42 interface as well as a controller for digital microphones. The unique device allows for connection and control of up to 8 digital microphones, and converting their signals to ADAT, AES/EBU, analog and (optional) MADI. Eight individually switchable hi-end sample rate converters offer a flexible clocking and further usage options, especially as the inputs are compatible to AES3 and AES/EBU too.
The DMC-842 is fully remote controllable via MIDI and AES as well as optionally via MADI. The optional MADI I/O Card also allows the MADI signal to be looped through from one DMC-842 to the next (up to 8). The total of up to 64 audio signals are then available at the last unit on only one line. Such a cascading is also possible with the products Micstasy and ADI-8 QS. The signal routed through the DMC-842 can be output via the analogue outputs, thus saving an expensive splitter box on stage.
