SPL Audio Madicon MADI Interface

MADI to USB Interface


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.
