The RME 12Mic-D is a top-of-the-line audio interface with 12 channel digitally controlled preamp that is Network-ready with Dante, ADAT and MADI. 

The RME 12Mic-D boasts impressive features, making it an ideal choice for professional audio recording. The microphone input stages are PAD-free and have a 75 dB gain range, accepting signals of up to +18 dBu, making it perfect for recording various instruments and sound sources. The 12Mic-D also has an outstanding signal-to-noise ratio on all channels, ensuring you get the best possible audio quality. The twelve front-facing XLR connections accept microphone and line level signals, and the first four connections also accept TRS connectors with switchable high impedance (Hi-Z) for instruments.

The 12Mic-D also comes equipped with two separate MADI ports, with coaxial built into the device as standard and optical MADI available via an optional SFP module. Additionally, it features three ADAT outputs and a line-level headphone output for monitoring all incoming digital and analogue signals. The routing matrix makes it easy to individually route any of the 12Mic-D's 204 input channels to any 218 output channels, providing unparalleled flexibility in your audio setup. You can transmit analogue and digital channels to the network with Dante connectivity. The 12Mic-D can receive up to 64 audio channels from the Dante network, which can be forwarded to the headphones, ADAT, and two MADI connections as needed. These features make the RME 12Mic-D an indispensable tool for professionals looking for a high-performance and versatile audio interface.

The RME 12Mic-D offers unparalleled flexibility and stability regarding network audio solutions. With the ability to transmit analogue and digital channels, the device can receive up to 64 audio channels from the Dante network and distribute them to the headphones, ADAT, and two MADI connections.

RME's development team built the device from the ground up, integrating Audinate's Dante IP Core on a custom-built RME FPGA platform to guarantee a highly performant device that can meet the ever-changing landscape of network audio solutions. A highly flexible solution brings RME closer to achieving a truly universal Audio Networking experience.

The 12Mic-D allows direct access to all features via the front panel, including controlling all device states. RME network audio devices can also be fully remote-controlled via a web interface on any network link. This enables the rapidly creating of gain groups, phantom power switching, and signal routing to headphones for monitoring. With the integrated routing matrix, analogue inputs can be quickly routed straight to the headphone output, making signal problem-solving straightforward.
