RME Audio Babyface

RME updates its portable USB interface with two new features: USB Audio 2.0 Class Compliance for connections to the iPad and a stand-alone mode.

The update is free of charge and can be done by the user with a simple firmware update via USB. RME released a firmware update, which adds stand-alone mode and class compliant USB operation to the unit.

 

The Babyface now operates in three different modes: driver-based USB 2.0 (as before), stand-alone mode, and class compliant USB Audio 2.0 (CC) mode. The latter describes a standard that is natively supported by operating systems like Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. No proprietary drivers are required; the device will be automatically detected. Although the functionality in this mode is limited, it is useful in case the user does not want to, or cannot install the original driver files which unlock additional features like TotalMix, effects, and slightly lower latencies, according to the company.

 

Connecting the Babyface to an Apple iPad or iPad Mini lets its connections become available to audio apps.

 

In stand-alone mode, the Babyface is not connected via USB at all. It acts both as an A/D converter (for example, two phantom-powered microphone input signals to SPDIF Output), and as a D/A converter (CD player optical output to line level speakers and headphones). It can act as master or slave to digital appliances at sampling rates of up to 192kHz.
