The preamps are excellent

RME Audio Babyface Snow EditionPublished on 03/14/13 at 20:09
The RME Babyface connects to a computer via usb 2.0 port. At first I was not too sure why this interface would be so expensive because it is very small. But the quality of it and the converters are great. For this unit to be so small and portable I didn’t expect to get two great preamps.

UTILIZATION

This interface comes with Total mix FX that has parametric EQ’s and some echo and reverb to add to your recordings. This interface also offers low latency as well. It will work with both Mac and PC computers and the sample rates are 32, 44.1, 48, 64, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4, 192 kHz.

UTILIZATION

GETTING STARTED

There are 2 XLR line inputs and 1 optical or SPDIF optical input. The BabyFace seems to have all of the perfect combination of effects to get great quality recordings, and the interface is very small and portable so why would anyone need to get a “bigger” interface? I think this interface could work for any home musicians as long as they do not need more inputs and simultaneous recording.

OVERALL OPINION

Setting it up is very easy as long as your computer is running a Core 2 system. There are also MIDI ports too, this interface can be purchased in white/silver and a blue color but it is all about preference because both units have the same specs.
The microphone preamps are by far the best part about this interface. For it to be so small, the preamps are individually controlled with a 48V phantom power switch. Since this interface comes with software, you can control pretty much all of the settings with the software that is provided. It only takes a few minutes to install the drivers and software to start using it right away. As long as your computer meets the specs you can use this interface with any DAW.

Quality preamp, size, audio inputs and outputs plus I / O ADAT I 8.
I use it mainly to record my bass (direct in the line input), my guembri (mic) and occasionally for voice or equity of ambience sounds. I use it to record demos of music ( Personal projects) make soundtracks for theater (professional)
I use an Apple MB Pro 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD HDD

UTILIZATION

The drivers are stable and regularly updated
Livesuite 9 Ableton, Logic X and PT11
I happened to make recordings up to 10 audio tracks (2 years and 8 ADAT) and mix up to 20 audio tracks. Sometimes I use to show 12 Out of Babyface to make multicasting. Matrix mode Totalmix then proves very effective...…

I happened to make recordings up to 10 audio tracks (2 years and 8 ADAT) and mix up to 20 audio tracks. Sometimes I use to show 12 Out of Babyface to make multicasting. Matrix mode Totalmix then proves very effective for the routing of inputs and outputs as you can make snapshot of complex configurations which can then instantly recall

OVERALL OPINION

I used for 3 years as part of my work and my personal projects.
I had a Fireface 800, a Fireface 400 ... but over time I realized that the Babyface covered most of my besoins.Cette card once connected ADAT or with a 01V96-type preamps OctaMic takes then its meaning because its potential is enormous "nonchalantly." In short this card is robust, the sound of a high quality, clear generous, detailed (I use for authorities theater, dance , music). It has never left me in the show. Truly Babyface is a card that excels in many applications. redeem in another? it's already done

Self!

RME Audio Babyface Snow EditionPublished on 02/05/13 at 11:57
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Bought for these features: USB powered, adat (so no Apogee or Focusrite in the same range), its great preamp, and transparency.

For strength, I do not know ... I take the utmost care and file a beautiful leather handbag with transport! No problems so far.

UTILIZATION

Never had any problems with drivers on any sound card rme I've owned.

Very simple to use single encoder is really convenient. TotalMix is ​​a killer, so flexible, nothing to do with such a soft yarn Mbox example. There you sent what you want where you want and can record where any router that emits sound on a computer with the loopback function.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound is great!
The convertos are beautiful and I find them even better definition, as well as the stereo depth, as my PCI RME hammerfall 9632 to. The preamp do their job in the most profound silence and good headroom.
TotalMix with its effects, its latency-free monitoring.
Making instrument practice, two headphone jacks, extension to break out cable provided.

I could compare in detail with the concurrent and apogee: The rm has the adat, and is more stable (I've seen concerns about the apogee) and is compatible with mac / pc.
Good after design, it is not the same ... the blue windows is not terrible (take this in white!), But personally I do not put in to the design, but features. And then the RME wins.

(Too bad the UCX is not "bus powered" or I'll opt for the other card.)
