RME Fireface UFX II Audio Interface

The unique RME Fireface UFX II Audio Interface is the premier solution to transfer analog and digital audio data directly to a computer from practically any source.

With exceptional flexibility and compatibility, the inclusion of DURec (Direct USB Recording), and RMEs famous low latency hardware and driver designs, the Fireface UFX II delivers a rich feature set that will appeal to users in both high end home studios and commercial audio production facilities. With capacity for 60 audio channels (30 input and 30 output), support for sampling frequencies upward of 192 kHz, and the flexibility provided by USB connectivity, the new Fireface UFX II is an ideal solution to a wide range of recording, mixing, and monitoring applications. The Fireface UFX II also includes DURec (Direct USB Recording), which is available on the front of the interface. It now offers second generation hardware with improved USB functionality and compatibility - providing greater reliability, even with slower or multi-partitioned USB thumb drives.

The Fireface UFX II offers excellent flexibility that enables the interface to fit seamlessly into a myriad of production environments. Analog, ADAT, AES, SPDIF, and USB 2 are all standard on the Fireface UFX II. Equally impressive is the units channel count: 12 analog, 16 ADAT, and 2 AES for 30 channels input and 30 channels output. Further, with support for USB 2 connectivity, the new Fireface UFX II can integrate with RMEs optional ARC USB remote controller.

RMEs Fireface UFX II incorporates premium AD/DA converters, optimized analog I/O circuits, as well as improved SNR and THD values to guarantee pristine, crystal clear and transparent audio. A new PAD-free mic circuit design with +18 dBu maximum input level and 75 dB gain range provides trouble-free operation for the most demanding recording environments. Further, new low impedance, high power phones outputs (2 Ohms) with +19 dBu maximum output level provide ample output power and volume on any headphones - high or low impedance.

Standard in the Field March 2, 2015
Reviewer: Craig  
Have 5 products by RME and always select this company for 2 reasons -- their stuff works and the quality is always comparable to the best in the field. Have a UCX as well and find the UFX to be substantially more useful in a small home studio. Haven't tried the standalone USB stick recording feature yet but if this works, it will be a great help in single-person recording situations. Their equipment lasts -- have an ADI96-Pro from 2000 and it still works through SPDIF connection. BTW, suggest you get a converter that speaks through USB -- it is much more likely to last as computers evolve.
