The AD1-2 Pro FSR BE also includes RME’s proprietary SteadyClock FS technology which offers the lowest jitter available providing users the highest-quality analog conversion and in turn suppling them with most pristine audio available.
Rounding out the features is a new extended Multi-Remote Suport (MRC) with access to 52 different functions and commands for maximum flexibility.
“The AD1-2 Pro FSR BE is the centerpiece for any serious studio engineer, Hi-Fi enthusiast or home recorder’s arsenal,” said Derek Badala, Director of Sales Americas at Synthax, distributor of RME. “Not only does it feature a host of devices all in one flexible unit, but it is now available in a sleek black design. Our SteadyClock FS technology rounds out the feature-packed converter providing users with the lowest jitter they can possible get, giving their mixes and recordings more depth and clarity.”
SteadyClock FS Clock frequency is an essential factor in digital audio as it creates the correlation between the audio bits and the time reference. While clock frequency is not always as stable as desired, RME’s SteadyClock FS technology included in the ADI-2 Pro FSR BE provides users with the lowest jitter and highest jitter immunity. Excellent performance in all clock modes and high-quality analog conversion allows users to hear their mix exactly as it is.
