Behringer X32, KT DN9650, and RME Madiface USB

I have been looking for a connectivity solution for a Behringer X32 console. My plan is to free up the firewire output that I currently use for running Waves Multirack and use it for recording. I would like to use the AES50 ports to run Multirack. So far, I have only looked into the RPM Dynamics AES50 to Thunderbolt interface. It looks promising but I am also wondering if converting AES50 to MADI via a DN9650 is a better solution. The interface would likely be the RME Madiface USB. Advice on the viablility of this idea and/or other recommendations utilizing other formats/interfaces is welcome.

Welcoming any advice!

One option to take a look at is getting the X32 Core (1HE rackmounted). You could connect the core to your recording device, and use the desk connected to your waves multirack as you normally would.

The advantage of getting the RPM would be that you could just as easily connect it to any other AES50 source (like the Midas PRO series) and record off of that, which is also 96khz instead of 48.

And the KT only makes things expensive in this case, as you'd still need a (MADI-computer) interface.

An RPM solution would be the most flexible in this case, although an X32 could be used a a monitordesk system, controlled by an Ipad or computer.

Dear Jfpenkala,
The RPM Dynamics solutions will work with the X32's AES50, as is discussed on this thread:
Is anyone using the RPM-TB24 I/O with the Behringer X32 ?

At this moment, the KT9650 is only 96kHz compatible so it will not work with X32 as it runs at 48kHz. A firmware change is in development to solve this, but there is not a certain release date.

I would agree with Samlow that the X32 CORE might be your simplest and most cost effective solution at $999 US MAP. You can interface it directly with your full size X32 via AES50 and use its included USB interface to record.

Let me know if I can answer anymore X32 questions.

Best,

@JP...back in the days, when I was mixing with SAC, I found out that some soundcard audio drivers are multiclient capable. I was mixing in SAC and simultaneously I recorded the show with reaper. Both programms used one RME Digiface at the same time. Worked flawlessly. The old Motu PCI 424 card was also multiclient capable. Maybe it works with the X-UF card as well...
Besides the fact that the RPM TB24 works really great with very low latency..it is quite pricey, has only 24 I/Os and the hardware requirements are hefty. A TB24 + a decent Mac Book will cost you some serious money. What has been said before, I also think the X32Core is a nice solution. BTW: I believe the core comes with the new X-USB card, which runs on my i7 Mac Book with 32Samples with a RTL of about 5ms! So I would use the X-USB card as an interface for multirack and the X-UF card with the core for recording.
