News RME Audio Babyface

The RME Babyface, a new USB 22-channel audio interface, is now available.

 

Equipped with 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters and two reference class microphone preamps the bus-powered Babyface delivers two =analog recording channels and four analog playback channels, plus ADAT and MIDI I/O.

 

The Babyface combines  analog circuit design with AD/DA converter chips. RME’s SteadyClock jitter suppression technology is designed to ensure an AD- and DA-conversion of the highest reference quality.

 

Both digitally controlled preamps provide switchable 48V phantom power. The low THD+N values let these preamps surpass those of other devices that cost several times the price of the Babyface, the manufacturer assures. All level settings are recallable by software and can be adjusted directly at the unit.

 

The feature set includes a digital I/O with up to 192 kHz support, alternatively usable as ADAT port or optical SPDIF I/O. In combination with an ADAT converter, like the RME ADI-8 DS/QS, the Babyface provides 10 analog input and 12 analog output channels.

 

The headphone output, driven from an extra DA converter, provides 192 kHz sound, and is available not only directly at the unit but also on the breakout cable.

 

The additional instrument input – directly at the side of the unit – allows the recording of any instrument, like a guitar or bass guitar, without any other external hardware, by switching one analog input to Hi-Z mode.

 

With one main control knob and two single buttons the Babyface acts as direct desktop control for all typical studio tasks: volume control, reference volume store and recall, volume dim, input selection/switching and input gain control.

 

The Babyface connects to the USB 2.0 bus, but is also compatible to USB 3 chipsets. It has been uncompromisingly optimized for highest performance under Windows and Mac OS by using customized firmwares for every operating system. Like other RME USB interfaces, the Babyface provides revolutionary ultra-low latencies even with multiple channels.

 

The Babyface includes TotalMix FX. The DSP mixer not only works with an internal resolution of 46 bit and matches the feature set of digital consoles, but even adds effects like a 3-band parametric equalizer, reverb and echo to the mix.

 

Babyface features:

  • 10 Input / 12 Output channels
  • 2 x analog I/O with line and mic level, balanced or unbalanced
  • 2 x digitally controlled Mic Preamps in high-end quality
  • 4 x analog output with the technology from RME’s high-end M-series converter
