News RME Audio Fireface UC

USB audio interface from RME Audio belonging to the Fireface series

The RME Fireface UC is designed to provide ultra-low latencies even with multiple audio channels and breaks performance restrictions of typical USB audio interfaces with transfer technologies.

It has been optimized for performance under Windows and OSX with dedicated firmware versions for each platform.

Using current USB chipsets (2008 or later), the Fireface UC provides performance previously seen only with sophisticated PCI Express interfaces, the company assures. Even buffer sizes of 32 samples at CPU loads close to full capacity are possible with modern desktop and laptop systems, supposedly.*

A field test with a variety of computer systems prior to delivery allowed for adjustments of the transfer protocol and adaptations to specific systems, ensuring the highest possible performance and compatibility, RME says. An overview of tested systems (both current and older varieties) and achievable performance can be found on RME’s website: www.rme-audio.de/en_products_fireface_uc_systems.php?page=content/products/uc_general.
