Topic: Smaller version of M32 Pro available in the future ?
I regard the M32 Pro as a fantastic product, even offering different reference levels per port which is not possible for the ADI-8 QS which is a pure studio device where you connect usually 8 devices of the same type.
I am missing such a device for smaller HOME/project studios, where you have 8 or even 16 analog I/O (input and output) on one unit, so that it's possible to keep the setup compact.
Otherwise you would always have to buy 2 such units for input and output separately which I do not regard as practical in all situations.
This would also make it possible to have TRS plugs on the device, not having to use additional patch fields, which would make such a solution less compact.
AUX device support for TM FX to be able to save the reference level state per port. DUAL PSU maybe not necessarily required to save some space and costs.
RME has many MADI related devices in the product line.
The Octamic XTC is an excellent Preamp, offering even 8 line inputs, but its missing the D/A part (only 2 phones).
But in the area of analog I/O there are currently products missing where you can expand in smaller and more compact steps and which enable the possibility to change the reference level per port.
I think introducing a smaller version of the M32 Pro would be fantastic as this would enable for other RME MADI products (MADIface Pro) to get i.e. 8 more preamps by getting the XTC and getting 8 or 16 more analog i/o.
I think there is a gap between ADI-8 QS and M-32 Pro AD / DA which would be interesting to be filled.
Also interesting might be additional AVB support for a new version of the Octamic XTC.
If such a device would have existed, I could have more easily switched to products like HDSPe MADI FX.
But then I would have missed the Flexibility of the UFX+, to be able to choose different reference levels per port.
Just a few thoughts.
