What's the latency of your system?

An M-Audio FastrackPro.

Which feature do you like best?
The sound fidelity, the single knob to browse inputs/outputs, the XLR converters, the virtual mixer.

Not enough inputs on the rear! I'll have to take the model just above as a consequence. Maybe a small reverb or an EQ.

How would you rate its value for money?
Maybe a bit expensive.

Based on your experience, would you buy this product again? ...
Without hesitation! If I had more money, I'd take the 800 to have more inputs/outputs.

Pro connections and manufacturing, the aluminum rack is very good.

UTILIZATION

Mac and PC drivers very good, latency OK.

GETTING STARTED

Problem-free installation, it works with all software programs (cubase, protools, sonar), the only problem is when you want to switch from mac to pc, you need to look very deeply in the documentation since this card has different drivers.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good soundcard, but it's very expensive compared to similar products, it lacks an input limiter, Roland has less expensive and better performing units, like Motu.

"A USB Fireface 400"

RME Audio Fireface UCPublished on 02/04/14 at 01:48
USB 2.0
ADAT / SPDIF / analog I-O / 2 mic inputs
More info on their site

UTILIZATION

Very reliable drivers. Both on Mac and PC.
Very short latency for a USB card

GETTING STARTED

Easy installation.
The RME routing utility is a real pain, but once you understand how it works, it's very powerful.

OVERALL OPINION

I needed a compact soundcard with USB (FireWire is disappearing), good AD/DA converters and a good clock. So, given my budget (less than $1000), I went for RME.
I knew pretty well the products (400/800/Micstasy/MADI bridge/ADI2 and 642) and manufacturing quality of the brand, so I opted for a Fireface UC (after hesitating between this one and the UCX).
The UCX works with 32bit......

The UCX works with 32bit floating-point, that's the main difference.

I use it specially with Protools and Smart. The analog I/Os allow me to use two or three devices.

It's a pity it doesn't have AES, but given its size...

Good value for money. Typical RME sound. A no-brainer at this price point.
