Topic: Is Madiface USB - USB Class compliant?
As the title says: Is Madiface USB - USB Class compliant? I mean for Audio signal.
I downloaded the manual and it says that USB MIDI is class compliant but I am interested in audio.
Perhaps I should clarify a bit. I intend to use (if that's possible) Madiface USB to connect it to my AKAI hardware. As you may know AKAI hardware in their latest firmware updates allowed users to connect their USB interfaces to AKAI.
Assuming that the USB card is "Class Compliant" - it will reveal first 32 inputs and outputs to the AKAI hardware such as AKAI Force or AKAI MPC.
From there one can utilize the USB interface and it's IO to connect gear and record straight into AKAI. Or another way, send AKAI signals to the USB interface and from there onto whatever is routed (hw mixer etc.).
I would like to connect Madiface USB to my AKAI, and from Madiface USB first 32 channels I intend to stream MADI signals into my MADI converter for further routing.
The only question is: is Madiface USB class compliant and if so, how do I turn that mode on?
I keep hearing that Madiface Pro USB (which is a bit different then Madiface USB) is "USB class compliant" but for some reason that device cannot be found in RME website main menu, nor can be purchased at Thomann. I can see it on RME website with direct link from google but product is removed from website main menu. That's indicating to me that something has changed.
I guess since they are changing converter chip to ESS they are updating that line of product so it's not available for the time being?
