Fireface UC USB 2.0 Compact Audio Interface description:

The RME Fireface UC USB 2.0 Compact Audio Interface has been uncompromisingly optimized for highest performance under Windows and Mac OS. Based on a newly developed RME Hammerfall core the Fireface UC provides revolutionary ultra-low latencies even with multiple channels.

The RME Fireface UC USB uses two different firmware versions with different transfer methods to remove current restrictions of typical USB audio interfaces. The unit’s operating mode Win or Mac can be changed directly at the unit at any time. Under Mac OS the Fireface’s MIDI ports are class compliant, the operating system therefore automatically uses the included MIDI driver.

Under both Operating Systems the available latencies* are simply sensational. The smallest buffer offered under Windows Vista has 48 samples, under Mac OS X 14 samples. With this RME provides a performance comparable to PCI Express interfaces - under USB 2.0.

The RME Fireface UC Main Features Include:

  • Integrated DSP TotalMix Software

Review:
So far so good. Sounds great. In comparison to my 8 year old M Box 2 pro there's so much more clarity in the bottom end so kicks and bass lines punch through clearer and also a lot more sharpness in the top end. Sibilance in vocals for example is now easier to hear.

Haven't used the inputs yet at all tbh, but will be doing soon. Only gripe is the total mix software looks a bit more complicated than it needs to be.
