The compact Fireface UC is optimized for high performance under Windows and Mac OS. Based on RME Hammerfall core the Fireface UC provides revolutionary ultra-low latencies even with multiple channels. It uses two different firmware versions with different transfer methods to remove current restrictions of typical USB audio interfaces. The unit's operating mode Win or Mac can be changed directly at the unit at any time. Under Mac OS the Fireface's MIDI ports are class compliant, the operating system therefore automatically uses the included MIDI driver.

Under both Operating Systems the available latencies are simply sensational. The smallest buffer offered under Windows has 48 samples, under Mac OS X 14 samples.

Features:

  • 18 Input / 18 Output channels
  • 8 x Analog I/O
  • 1 x ADAT I/O or 1 x SPDIF I/O optical
  • 1 x SPDIF I/O coaxial
  • 2 x MIDI I/O
  • 1 x USB 2.0
  • 2 x Mic Preamp with digitally controlled gain
  • TotalMix: 648-channel mixer with 42-bit internalresolution
  • 54 Level Meter Peak/RMS, hardware-calculated
  • Word Clock input and output plus two MIDI I/Os(special breakout cable included)
  • SteadyClock for maximum jitter suppression and clockrefresh
  • Sample rates up to 192 kHz on all I/Os (including 2 ADAT channels withSMUX4)

Specifications:

  • Input AD: 6 x 1/4" TRS (4 x Line, 2 xLine/Instrument), 2 x XLR/TRS Combo connector (2 x Mic/Line), allservo-balanced.
  • Output DA: 6 x 1/4" TRS, servo-balanced, DC-coupledsignal path. 1 x 1/4" TRS unbalanced
  • Input Digital: 1 x ADAT optical or SPDIF optical,SPDIF coaxial (AES/EBU compatible)
  • Output Digital: 1 x ADAT optical or SPDIF optical,SPDIF coaxial (AES/EBU compatible)

  • Input/Output level for 0 dBFS @ +4 dBu: +13 dBu
  • Input/Output level for 0 dBFS @ -10 dBV: +2 dBV
  • Sample rate internally: 32, 44.1, 48, 64, 88.2 kHz,96 kHz, 128, 176.4, 192 kHz
  • Sample rate externally: 28 kHz - 200 kHz
  • Frequency response: AD/DA, -0.1 dB: 5 Hz - 20.4 kHz(sf 44.1 kHz)
  • Frequency response: AD/DA, -0.5 dB: 1 Hz - 43.3 kHz(sf 96 kHz)
