8 channel AES interface and control device for win/mac (24bit/192kHz)


The DMC-842 is both an 8-Channels AES42 interface as well as a controller for digital microphones. The unique device allows for connection and control of up to 8 digital microphones, and converting their signals to ADAT, AES/EBU, analog and (optional) MADI.

When developing the DMC-842, RME worked closely with the microphone manufacturers to secure maximum compatibility and best functionality. As a result the DMC-842 is the most flexible and most compatible AES42 interface available.


  • Fully compatible to AES42
  • 24 bit sample rate conversion switchable per input
  • Digital Phantom Power switchable per input
  • Supports Mode 1 and Mode 2
  • 63 dB gain range per channel, even in asynchronous Mode 1
  • LED level meter with 13 LEDs per channel
  • M/S de-/encoding
  • Fully remote controllable
  • Future-proof by flash updates
