Iron wall compatibility and overwhelming connectivity. RME's new flagship audio interface that brings out the true capabilities of USB3 and Thunderbolt.
■ Audio interface
Fireface UFX+ is equipped with RME with DURec (Direct USB Recoridng) combined with flexibility to freely control 94 channels of input/output, connectivity with other peripheral devices, and stability by a proprietary driver. A new flagship interface that brings together the best of the technology of. In addition to having MADI installed for the first time in the Fireface series (achieving 30 more input/output than Fireface UFX), more powerful DSP, connection by USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt, new remote controller (ARC USB) compatible, etc. , Which implements the reference function of the Fireface series in the future.
■ Main features
By mounting MADI, Fireface UFX+ functions as a host for large-scale digital-analog conversion systems including RME as well as third-party AD/DA converters. Each channel provided by multiple MADI devices can be routed and mixed arbitrarily and freely. Fireface UFX+ functions as an audio interface for 30ch (analog x 12, ADAT x 16, AES x 2) other than MADI when connected to a PC via USB2, but MADI 64ch input/output is internally It can be routed and can be used without going through a DAW. The Word Clock port (BNC) can also be switched and used as a MADI coaxial port, and there is also a "split" mode that uses 32 channels each for MADI optical and coaxial.
◎ DU Rec (Direct USB Recording)
DURec prepared on the front panel of Fireface UFX+ has evolved as the second generation. USB compatibility has been enhanced to allow use with slower USB memory sticks and drives with multiple partitions. The maximum number of recordable channels has been expanded to 76, and all 12 channels of Fireface UFX+ analog inputs and 64 channels of MADI inputs can be recorded as interleaved WAV files. DURec, which can perform multi-channel recording without a PC, demonstrates its power in the field of live recording where you want to use less equipment.
◎ Total Mix FX
Since its appearance in 2001, TotalMix FX, which has characterized RME's audio interface with its unique functionality, can create completely independent submixes for the number of outputs. In addition, with DSP-equipped models, all effect processing is performed inside the Fireface itself, and does not put any load on the computer CPU.
◎ Class Compliant Mode & TotalMix FX for iPad
Fireface UFX+ can be used as an audio interface for iPad by switching to Class Compliant (CC) mode. TotalMix for iPad is an application that enables you to use the rich mixing functions of TotalMix FX when using it on your iPad.
