Topic: Trinnov MADI to AES I/O
Hi, I have a Madiface and I like the use case for not throwing away all the preamps, converters and utility that comes with your typical interface when you need to upgrade. However, I think I may have backed myself into a corner. I think Madi is the greatest, but the reality is, you can’t always find what you want and expect it to have Madi.
I want to get Trinnov and run in and out of it digitally, and don’t want to spend more thousands $$ on a unit that has a bunch of extra stuff just for one set of AES channels. At least run digitally into it and use the Trinnov’s DAC to my speakers.
I’ve considered getting an RME aes PCIe card but don’t even know if you can use that and usb Madiface synergistically in Totalmix.
I’ve also considered the RME ADI-8 QS with the MADI card, if that will even work, but now I’m spending over $4k for this!? That’s getting close to the cost of the Trinnov itself.
Anyone have any ideas?
