Product Description

RME is excited to present the Babyface Pro which demonstrates RME's absolute commitment to superior craftsmanship. The Babyface Pro is created with the highest precision from a block of aluminum plus it incorporates newly designed analog and digital circuits. Its innovative energy saving technologies provide supreme fidelity with no compromises in level, noise or distortion .

Progressive Interface
For the main I/O RME have designed a completely new XLR socket, which integrates seamlessly into the housing and saves space. The two headphone outputs, offering TRS and mini-jack sockets in parallel, have completely separate driver stages to perfectly match low and high impedance headphones, guaranteeing pristine sonic results no matter what type of headphone is used.

Two digitally controlled preamps provide individually switchable 48V phantom power. These brand new circuits feature a gain range of 76 dB, adjustable in steps of 1 dB, including a relay-driven PAD, resulting in exceptional EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) performance as well as line overload protection, and enough gain for even the lowest level microphones.v
Babyface Pro’s incredibly efficient design almost never requires an external power supply – it’s perfectly stable on USB 3 bus power, and also most USB 2 ports, with no degradation in any technical specification. This makes it perfect for mobile recording, even with a pair of your favorite condenser microphones.

The comprehensive feature set continues with an optical TOSLINK I/O; use as either an ADAT port with SMUX support or SPDIF for sessions up to 192 kHz. In combination with an external ADAT converter, the Babyface Pro fully supports 12 analog inputs as well as 12 outputs, making it ideal for both live and studio multi-track applications. You can plug any instrument, line or high impedance, into Babyface Pro’s jack inputs 3 & 4. Record your guitar on the go, with no additional hardware required. MIDI I/O via an included breakout cable completes the package.

Profound Technology
Babyface Pro ships with RME’s TotalMix FX, available for Windows and Mac OS X. An iOS version is available as well. This amazingly versatile software allows you to use Babyface Pro in every situation. You can do something as simple as mixing together your guitar and vocal to headphones.

The FPGA-based DSP mixer adds a flexible, 3-band parametric equalizer to all inputs and outputs. Reverb and delay FX are also onboard.

Latest generation low latency AD/DA converters, combined with RME’s unique SteadyClock technology, result in exceptional specifications that will satisfy the most demanding of professionals.

Combining a huge feature set with sonic excellence and intuitive control, whether for the studio or on the move, the RME Babyface Pro is the most comprehensive and versatile compact audio interface ever built.

A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing.

Class Compliant
The Class Compliant mode is a standard that is natively supported by operating systems like Windows, Mac OS X, Linux distributions, and hardware like Apple’s iPad. No proprietary drivers are required, the device will be directly recognized.

Due to the highly efficient jitter reduction, the converters operate as if they are working with internal clock all the time - guaranteeing a pristine sound experience!

TotalMix FX
TotalMix FX is RME’s superior hardware mixer. It delivers fully flexible mixing/routing with many superior features for studio and live work, still maintaining exemplary overview and usability.

Straight to the core without interference: the reference design of the Babyface Pro leaves nothing to be desired. RME devices are designed to conserve music as it is. Audio signals are passed in their entirety, nothing added, nothing taken. For the new Babyface, the audio circuits have been improved to meet even highest gain levels with best dynamic range. The clever user interface is informative and clearly laid out. It makes access to every feature and configuration mode of the Babyface Pro intuitive and easy to use. Even in stand-alone mode, routing and mixing of inputs to outputs directly on the device opens a whole world of possible applications.

The Must Have audio interface
Product Rating

Product Review

I picked this up after deliberating for quite some time, and I am so glad I did. I researched other interfaces from Universal Audio, Focusrite and Presonus and concluded that this was going to be the right unit for the job. It's portability coupled with sound quality and ability to add a mic preamp via adat adding 8 additional mic inputs sealed the deal for me. I use the unit to record my drums and couple it with Ableton and have had alot of fun with it.

Trust Me, Just Pick Em Up

Product Review

I had minimalistic needs; since my studio is primarily VST based (the exception being some vintage synths and a guitar/bass here & again) I needed an interface with great sounding yet minimal inputs and no preamp, as not to influence the signal of my Slate VMS. After much research, I settled on this beautiful little tyke. She has not disappointed in the least: crytal clear A/D converters with plenty of gain. Controls are straight forward and conveniently laid out with very little learning curve. If you need a minimal frills beautiful sounding pro quality interface with a small footprint at a great price (especially with the AMS installment plans) this is your unit.

Just buy it. Do yourself a favor. It exceeds expectations. The mixer program takes some getting used to, but once you start to get the hang of it you begin to truly appreciate what it is and why its much better than any other interfaces included software. I'm running at the lowest number of samples possible now, at 96k 32 bit and not a pop even with 30 instances of Omnisphere open in Ableton. Amazing conversion, CLEAN preamps, and enough of a headphone amp to drive my 250 ohm cans no problem. This blows away my partners Apogee.

Product Review

I originally bought an Audient ID14 which sounded beautiful but had cutouts and all sorts of driver issues. I bit the bullet and put out for an RME and as expected this interface is rock solid and sounds and functions beautifully. The sound quality is pristine and the line ins are dead silent. It even has a 1/8 in headphone jack along with the 1/4 inch jack which I did not expect. My best studio purchase yet.
