The dual port Allen & Heath MADI card supports two streams of 64 channel bi-directional 24-bit 48kHz serial digital audio transmission using two 75 ohm coaxial cables per port. An additional AUX connector can be configured to mirror stream 1 outputs, pass thru stream 1 inputs, or as a word clock input or output.. Daisy chain or split signals to multiple devices, sync with either stream or an external word clock. The second port can be configured as an independent stream or as a redundant backup connection using a second cable. Signals from either stream can be routed to the iLive channels in blocks of 8. iLive and GLD outputs can be patched to MADI and appear at both stream outputs.
M-MADI is one of a range of digital audio networking options available for iLive and GLD to enable integration with other systems, digital mic splitting, multi-track recording and system expansion. It can be fitted to the Port B expansion slot in iLive fixed format MixRacks (iDR-16, iDR-32, iDR-48, iDR-64) or expander (xDR-16), Port A/B in iLive modular MixRacks (iDR0, iDR10) and Port A of iLive modular surfaces if they are fitted with the new RAB-2 standard. It can also be fitted to the I/O Module expansion slot in a GLD-80 mixer.
