RME Fireface UC Hi-Performance USB 2.0 High Speed Audio Interface
The Fireface UC is an 18-in/18-out 24-bit/192kHz USB Audio Interface with Two Digitally Controlled Microphone Preamps, TRS I/O, ADAT, S/PDIF, MIDI, and Word Clock - Mac/PC. RME's Fireface UC continues the Fireface legacy, but this time trades in FireWire for USB. Using a newly developed RME Hammerfall core, the Fireface UC is capable of super-low latencies when running multi-channel audio.
Two different firmware versions with different transfer methods are used, effectively removing the current restrictions of USB. I/O is plentiful, as the Fireface UC boasts two mic pres, ADAT, and S/PDIF, for a total of 18 input/output channels plus MIDI I/O. Latency is nearly non-existent on both Mac OS X and Windows Vista with the Fireface UC. The Fireface UC provides revolutionary ultra-low latencies even with multiple channels.
