USB AND FireWire - in One Ultra-versatile Interface!

How did RME squeeze all that awesome I/O into the single-rackspace Fireface UFX interface? We don't know, but we're very, very happy that they did. You'll be very happy too. Want even more happiness? Check this out: the Fireface UFX gives you both USB 2.0 and FireWire connectivity! That's killer flexibility. This box has 30 input and 30 output channels, four digitally controlled preamps, a boatload of digital I/O options, and a word clock. It even includes a fantastic DSP mixer and signal router. This means you can put audio into your DAW and use the Fireface UFX to run your monitor setup. PLUS, you can use it standalone as a preamp, a monitor mixer, an AD/DA converter, and more. Wow!


The Fireface UFX piles on the I/O goodness. 12 channels of premium analog I/O (that includes the four totally awesome digitally controlled preamps). You also get AES/EBU, ADAT, S/PDIF, and MIDI I/O. RME really hit one out of the park with this box; it's the perfect centerpiece for all kinds of rigs. A whole lot of channels, a whole lot of I/O and routing options, a whole lot of interface... in one rackspace. Can't beat that!
