The first multi-channel interface for digital microphones. The introduction of digital microphone technology into the pro audio sector has afforded sound engineers a greater degree of flexibility. At the same time, it has created a demand for interfaces that can control and handle digital microphones.

Price wise the DMC-842 digital microphone interface is comparable with conventional preamp/converter units such as RME’s Micstasy. In addition to its role as an interface, the DMC-842 also acts as a power supply and control device for digital microphones, supporting the worldwide AES 42 standard.

Supporters of the Mode 1 and Mode 2 operating systems specified in the AES 42 standard currently include, among others, Neumann and Schoeps. Mode 1 permits an asynchronous operating system in which the microphone is supplied with Digital Phantom Power (DPP), but no control data can be transmitted “upstream”. Working with several Mode 1 microphones requires the use of sample rate converters, which have already been implemented in the DMC-842. Mode 2 allows microphones to be synchronized and control data for adjusting gain, polar patterns, hi-pass filter and compression settings to be sent. Further functions are already specified in the AES 42 standard and availability depends on the individual microphone.

The cost of running digital microphones with a DMC-842 is comparable with that of many standard analog microphone-preamp/converter set ups. What’s more, it affords greater ease of use, with better quality and enhanced functionality – depending on the application.

In many respects, the DMC-842 is an ideal companion to RME’s Micstasy. Using the same interface connections as Micstasy (ADATSMUX and AES/EBU in series, MADI and other optional formats) it ensures problem-free assembly of combined systems for both analog and digital microphones. The DMC-842 even includes analog line level outputs, so there are no problems if pure analog devices are included in the chain, for example when monitoring.

The ability to switch the Digital Phantom Power on or off on individual channels means that the DMC-842 can handle “normal” AES/EBU signals at the same time. Thanks to the built-in SRC (sample rate converters), these can also be asynchronous.

To adjust the various microphone parameters, RME has produced a free Windows-based software application that communicates with the DMC-842 via MIDI. As with Micstasy, the DMC-842 also supports the transfer of MIDI data over MADI as well as over AES/EBU-Signals. All the main microphone parameters are also directly accessible from the unit itself.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
