    52 channels, Craig? I've never heard of combining in and out channels like that in a "spec."

    That's how RME advertised it, Dave.

    Seems to me it used to be common practice.
    SAW/SAC - finally retired a P4/2gHz after ten great years! Burnin' rubber in 2015 with an Intel Core2 Duo e4700/2.6GHz and the trusty RME Digiface/PCI pack.

    2013 Iowa City JazzFest sets recorded/mixed in SAW with SAC as a front-end mixer for live streaming radio!

    Unfortunately, I'm seeing it more and more. You really have to study the specs to see what you are really getting.

    Crazy. I guess I missed that. I'm further surprised by RME's page, especially because it even says 96 KHz right after it, which is definitely not doable on 52 channels at a time on the Digiface. Seems misleading, but I guess if you know what to look for...

    I've been out of the market for this stuff for so long, I've probably forgotten a lot about the way things are done with the marketing, etc.

    Caveat emptor, as they say.

    Yeah RME has always done it that way and I agree it's very misleading. But perhaps from a Geman perspective that is normal and us english speakers are doing it wrong?

    What gets really confusing is when the number of I/O to and from software is different than the hardware I/O on the device. If you want to make your head hurt do a deep dive on the MOTU AVB stuff. Unit A might have 16x8 I/O but allow for 32x32 to/from software via ASIO (because you might have other I/O sitting on the AVB network but then Unit B may only be an 8x8 device but it will allow for 64x64 via ASIO. I just made those numbers up and they don't match any particular piece of their AVB units. But you get the idea. It's been interesting trying to plan a full networked system of I/O and then making sure I have the correct unit that will actually connect to the computer via USB so I can actually get audio to and from all those points.

    All specs were taken directly from the RME website.

    The Digifaces are still available, if interested. I no longer frequent this board, so PM would be the best way to ask me a question.
