I was looking for a sound card can have many inputs and many outputs. This can by adding two additional converters to 30 entrées/30 outputs.
What I have today. I have a studio and loves all or redébrancher reconnect every time I record. Therefore, everything is plugged in simultaneously battery (10 microphones, three guitars, two basses, three songs, 1 keyboard + hardware)
All connected to a Mac with 16MB and Logic Pro 9 and Logic Pro X now.
Everything can be run at the same time and it does not ppose of resource problem.

UTILIZATION

The drivers are stable, no latency, the simple but effective effects a low memory if they are all used for all tracks at the same time.

GETTING STARTED

The installation is simple. But the configuration settings and need more refinements for this sounds really good. The manual is clear but not detailed enough in my opinion.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for over a year and NIOHC would do this without hesitation. this is the bomb

" A nice little toy"

(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Getting to lodge itself in one rack unit 4 mic preamps (more correct), 8 line inputs, 1 and 2 AES Adat ... not bad.

8 line inputs are connected to two quad preamps, which gives me 12 mic in flight 4 U, any good classic pickup.

Any recent computer will work well with this interface because it takes both USB and Firewire.

UTILIZATION

RME drivers have a reputation for being very reliable and this is true regardless of the platform.
I use this interface mainly with Pyramix (PC) and also with Pro Tools (Mac).
In my case, latencies do not matter because I do not do rere and I hardly ever use returns for musicians.

GETTING STARTED

As with all RME interfaces, the first startup is fast, then the moment comes when one reads a bit to tour features.
These are high, especially with the integrated recording, a brilliant idea.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a little over a year and I have gained enormously in space during my travels. The interface is nice. And then you can save a backup in case of trouble with the main station is a nice touch

" A machine that meets all my needs and more ..."

A clear answer: its USB 2.0 connection

I previously used the Fireface 800 that gave me any satisfaction, apart from the issue of Firewire connection. This type of connection is endangered, and a good part of my work consisting of capatations Live disability that did not become more severe: almost no laptops equipped with Firewire, or even expansion slot for express card R34, I struggled to find a correct card and MSI LaCie, this set represents undoubtedly the weakest link in the chain. The USB 2.0 connection solves all

I use the 'UFX with a custom made preamp CRS 8 input table or sometimes Sonosax to 8 channels. 4 mic inputs of the UFX are efficient and seamless integration with other channels ... all line outputs from mixers are pluggées on the rear of the UFX and 12 analogue channels are stored on the sequencer Samplitude.
The PC is recording an MSI with 8GB Ram I running W7-64, audio streams are recorded on HDD Seagate 1TB connected via a USB 2.0 output.

The PC studio also run under W7-64 with an I7 and a Gigabyte motherboard with X58 chipset and 18GB of RAM.

Rating for this item: 9/10

UTILIZATION

The drivers are extremely stable, the site provides all RME SHIFT timely. So far, I am limited to 18 tracks in 24/88 without any difficulty.
Latency of 7 ms with a buffer size of 256 MB

I've never seen crackling, noise or other interference in relation to the size of the buffer. For projects exceeding 8 tracks, I wear the buffer size to 512MB by prudence, no more.

Rating for this item: 10/10

GETTING STARTED

The installation is done "like a breeze" ... In my case, I downloaded the RME website the latest drivers and firmware and everything went without difficulty anicroches.Aucune installation or incompatibility.

However, we regret a certain lack of intuitiveness in TotalMix FX: read a user manual is always useful, but here it is really necessary. And even after six weeks of intensive use, I would not swear that I master all the possibilities, huge it is true, TotalMix ..!

One difficulty comes from the interaction of the channel configuration between the sequencer software and TotalMix FX: you really think about what you are doing.

As the manual (English version / German AND French version) is very good, but I would say longer limited to a detailed statement of possibilities rather than a guide "Hands On" which would be useful for decision hand. However, for a good commentary on the connection to use for connections balanced / unbalanced: a wiring error and harmonic distortion increases significantly.

I would say a convenient summary and schematic commands as a card or flyer would be welcome!

Rating for this item: 7/10

OVERALL OPINION

I use the UFX for about 7 weeks. Before that, I worked daily with the RME Fireface 800 with great satisfaction and I have not tried other brands before deciding.

The +: quality converters

The - the price ... but the quality is paid and price / quality ratio is excellent.


With experience, you do again this choice?: Yes, certainly
