M-audio Delta TDIF (2000)
« on: October 12, 2014, 04:51:47 PM »


the breakout cable on the tdif can be confusing but heres a run down of the coaxial connections provided:
1 x spdif out
1 x spdif in
2 x analog inputs (L+R)
2 x analog outputs (L+R)
1 x word clock bnc OUT
these connections are in addition to the TDIF 8 ch in/out

Delta TDIF™
TDIF Interface with S/PDIF and Analog i/o
(MSRP $349.95 USD)

Why the Delta TDIF?
The Delta TDIF is a powerful tool for any studio that uses a computer and TDIF-compatible devices. The Delta TDIF is a versatile card that not only supports the 8-channel TDIF standard, but also provides SPDIF i/o for digital transfers and mastering, analog ins and outs for recording and monitoring, digital mixing, control over SCMS, and more. The Delta TDIF can be combined with other audio cards (including other Delta cards) to make a comprehensive professional hard disk recording solution. With multicard support, sync capabilities, and extensive driver support, the Delta TDIF is the best choice for computer recording with TDIF devices.

With the Delta TDIF you can:
• Fly tracks between your computer and your Tascam MDM for nonlinear editing
• Monitor via stereo analog outputs
• Input stereo analog sources with analog inputs
• Convert TDIF to SPDIF and SPDIF to TDIF in real time
• Master and transfer digitally via S/PDIF i/o

• 8-channel TDIF digital input & output on standard TDIF-1 connector.
• 10x10 24-bit/96khz (48khz TDIF) full-duplex recording interface.
• TDIF-to-S/PDIF or S/PDIF-to-TDIF conversion in real time.
• Stereo coaxial S/PDIF digital input & output.
• Stereo analog input & output with high dynamic range and low distortion.
• S/PDIF output simultaneously sent to analog outputs for monitoring convenience.
• Syncs with: internally generated clock, clock derived from S/PDIF input, or word clock from incoming TDIF.
• Comprehensive digital mixing, routing, and monitoring capabilities with included Delta Control Panel software.
• Hardware sample-accurate sync will allow linking of multiple Delta units.
• Macintosh and Windows compatible.

The Delta TDIF is a 24bit/48kHz PCI card that supports all MDM’s conforming to the TDIF-1 standard. As a member of the Delta audio card family, the Delta TDIF supports Mac, PC and all major recording applications. The Delta TDIF offers a stereo pair of analog in and out for added recording and monitoring convenience, and S/PDIF provides connectivity with DAT and CD recorders. With multicard support, sync capabilities, and extensive driver support, the Delta TDIF is the best choice for computer recording with the TDIF format.

Features Include
• 8-channel TDIF digital input & output
• Stereo S/PDIF digital input & output
• Macintosh and Windows compatible
• TDIF to S/PDIF conversion in real time
• S/PDIF to TDIF conversion in real time
• Analog outputs for monitoring convenience
• Multiple cards may be synced via S/PDIF
• 3 choices for master clock: (1) Internally generated clock, (2) Recovered clock from SPDIF inputs, or (3) LR clock from an external TDIF-1 capable source.
• Breakout cable configuration.
