Audio interface with USB 2.0 high-speed bus optimized for uncompromising high performance on Windows and Mac OS!
■USB 2.0 audio interface
・Fireface UC (USB Compact) is equipped with a USB 2.0 high speed bus optimized for uncompromising high performance on Windows and Mac OS. Designed based on the RME Hammerfall core The newly developed proprietary transmission technology achieves ultra-low latency even on multi-channels, achieving professional specifications not possible with general USB audio interfaces.
Ultimate USB audio technology
• Latency on Windows and Mac OS X is revolutionary. The minimum latency on Windows Vista is 48 samples, and on Mac OS X it is up to 14 samples. This is comparable to the performance of the PCI Express interface.
Hammerfall DSP design
・The Hammerfall DSP series, which is used as a reference in various fields, has a good reputation for driver stability, accuracy, and sound quality. It's the only option for severe sites.
Flexible real-time mixer/Patchbay TotalMix
Equipped with a powerful digital real-time mixer "TotalMix" unique to RME that is DSP-based and does not overload the CPU of the computer. All 18 inputs and 18 playback channels can be freely routed/mixed to the 18 physical outputs, allowing up to 648 different routings.
Jitter suppression function SteadyClock
・SteadyClock provides amazing jitter suppression for all clocks. Perform AD/DA conversion with optimum quality.
Multi-analysis software DIGICheck
・RME's original utility developed to measure and analyze digital audio streams. It is equipped with a level meter, spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, Bit Statistics & noise meter, and a multi-recording function for long-time recording with a minimum CPU load.
