16+16 channel AD/DA converter and MADI interface

Madison offers what hardly any other manufacturer in this price segment has to offer: 16 AD/DA converters. With SmartMADI and the Madicon this becomes an expandable multi-channel studio interface of the first order.

  • MADI transmission distance up to 2 km
  • MADI I/O latency: 1 sample
  • Optical MADI socket, type SC
  • 56 & 64 channel Hi/Lo modes
  • accepts Varispeed up to +/-12,5%
  • Sync to MADI, Wordclock or Internal
  • Device ID for daisy chaining
  • 16 AD and 16 DA converters
  • 24 bit / up to 192 kHz
  • Level lights per channel in easily readable blocks of four
  • OdBfs: 15, 18, 22 or 24 dBu
  • Fanless and therefore particularly suitable for noise-sensitive environments
  • Optional redundant power supply unit

Madison together with the Madicon support SmartMADI

  • MADI becomes more user-friendly, simple and modern
  • SPL’s Madicon and Madisons can now be connected in series (daisy chaining) like Audio-Over-IP devices, and are easier to configure and more reliable.
  • An additional MADI router for more than two MADI devices is not required
  • The sample rate is now transmitted via the MADI stream and Madisons follow automatically – very handy

MADI Train & Device IDs

This drawing explains the Device ID settings when up to four Madison with SmartMADI are connected to the Madicon and a DAW in a daisy-chain connection at single, double and quadruple sample rates.

The following videos introduce the Madicon USB interface that connects up to four Madisons to your Mac or PC and its unique Madicon Monitor Mixer.
