Default Re: MADI core audio interface recommendation

The standards for MADI are 56 channel (older) or 64 channel.
I only know SSL used 48 channels of a 56/64 channel stream (so the stream is actually operating with more channels just not all being used.) There was never a 48 channel stream format. Most modern MADI devices can have the stream channel count set (including the RME) from software options.
But you have to get it right otherwise a mismatch will sound either like bit crushing (across all channels) or a high pitched whine on the last 8 channels.
