  • Simple splitting to create redundancies for multi-track recordings


MADI media converter, splitter & router

Media converter

Effortlessly convert between formats

Our ml:mio converts MADI-streams between optical, coaxial BNC and twisted pair. This greatly simplifies the planning of setups and saves you a lot of time – in particular when working at live events. Especially when on big tours or when a venue comes with pre-installed cabling, it no longer matters whether people work with BNC, optical or CAT cables: with the ml:mio as a universal connector, you always have the right adapter ready to hand.


Router & splitter

Flexible routing & splitting of signals

For more complex setups you can route any input to any number of outputs. No matter how intricate the setup, this makes rerouting and splitting signals an effortless task.

If you, for instance, want to combine a mixing console and a recording device or create redundancies, the ml:mio offers a particularly practical solution: incoming MADI-streams can be split into several signals for this purpose.

Ease of use

Straightforward operation without external software

The three toggle switches mounted directly on the ml:mio ensure ease of use with no need for additional devices. You don’t even need a notebook to remote-control the ml:mio: smartly integrated LEDs always indicate the current status of your signals and their routing. Especially when working under low light conditions, the ml:mio makes sure you keep track of things with a single glance.

Flashing LEDs on the inputs immediately show you whether a MADI stream is stable or has been lost recently. The color of the output LEDs indicates the chosen source medium routed to this output – green for BNC, red for optical and blue or white for twisted pair.



A compact, handheld MADI media converter that effortlessly converts streams from every connector and cable type. Your solution to all MADI headaches.
