Madicon

MADI to USB Interface

Madicon is a USB digital interface connecting up to 64 inputs and 64 outputs via USB to the computer.

Madicon introduces SmartMADI®, which allows daisy chaining Madison 16-ch AD/DA converters and communicating sample rate changes through the MADI stream.

It features an additional optical Toslink output for channels 1/2 to allow connection to a DAC in the control room while the Madisons operate in the recording rooms. Instead of many analog wires with expensive wall connectors only two tiny MADI cables are required.

Although the Madicon is a USB 2 device, in some cases older computers do not recognize the Madicon correctly.
Older USB ports and its drivers (e.g. Core Audio) do not fully support the high speed and midi communication which are mandatory for a reliable 64 channel mixing and recording.

For the best performance connect the Madicon direct to an USB 3 Port of your computer.
Do not use an USB hub.
