The Fireface UC (USB Compact) uses the USB 2.0 high-speed bus for use under Windows and Mac OS.


The smallest buffer offered under Windows Vista has 48 samples, under Mac OS X 14 samples. With this RME provides a performance comparable to PCI Express interfaces — under USB 2.0.

The optimization for Windows and Mac OS X is partly based on a double firmware within the unit, realizing an optimized functionality and operation according to the currently active OS. Under Mac OS X the unit's MIDI ports are even class compliant, the Operating System therefore automatically uses its included MIDI driver.

The new 36-channel RME Fireface — UC is like the Fireface 400 — the only device in its class with active jitter suppression, enhanced stand-alone functionality and controllability from the front panel, flexible I/Os and a 648-channel matrix router — at sample rates of up to 192 kHz.

Features:
  • 18 inputs / 18 outputs
  • 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
  • Sample rates up to 192 kHz on all I/Os
  • Two digitally controlled Mic Preamps in high-end quality
  • Two balanced universal inputs for line and instrument signals
  • SteadyClock for maximum jitter suppression and clock refresh
  • Enhanced stand-alone operation with rotary encoder and front panel operation
  • 54 Level Meter Peak/RMS, hardware-calculated
  • TotalMix: 648-channel mixer with 42-bit internal resolution

Availability
The Fireface UC will be available in June 2009.
