In the year 2001 RME started a revolution in mobile audio recording: the HDSP System, consisting of a PCI or CardBus card plus an external I/O-box has been the world’s first audio system, operating at both desktop and laptop. And the world’s first professional multitrack system for notebooks at all.
Today we are proud to look back and conclude: the HDSP system has become a true ‘industry standard’. Thanks to continuing firmware and driver updates it stayed a cutting-edge product, still offers un-beaten performance, and still enjoys great popularity among the users.
PCI and CardBus have not been surpassed by any other interface technology for professional audio – no other solution can keep up regarding low Latency and lowest CPU load. Also in regards of competition RME’s HDSP system is still unsurpassed after so many years. No other manufacturer offers such a flexible, robust, performing and expandible solution.
