The Fireface UFX II from RME is a flexible USB 2.0 audio interface that provides a total of 60 channels of crystal-clear and transparent audio, at resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz. It offers four digitally controlled preamps, reference-class AD/DA converters, ultra-low latency operation combined with exceptional driver stability, and is ideal for recording, mixing, and monitoring applications in high-end home studios and commercial audio production facilities.

The Fireface UFX II offers a full range of connectivity options such as analog, AES/EBU, ADAT, and Wordclock I/Os. With support from USB 2.0 the unit also integrates with the company's ARC USB remote controller (available separately). New features include pad-free microphone circuitry, improved AD/DA converters, optimized analog I/Os, and low-impedance phone outputs with plenty of power and volume to drive high- and low-impedance headphones.

The interface can operate in standalone and can be fully configured/set up at the device by using the three rotary encoders and the color display. It comes equipped with TotalMix FX, a real-time mixer driven by two powerful DSP processors, which allows for practically unlimited mixing and routing operations. The software offers 3-band parametric equalizer, low-cut, echo, reverb, compressor, expander, and auto-level for any output, and can completely replace an external mixer by creating multiple latency-free main, monitor, or headphone mixes. TotalMix FX can also be controlled from an iPad via the TotalMix FX for iPad app (available separately).

The Fireface UFX II includes an improved version of DURec (Direct USB Recording), which lets you record all inputs and outputs directly to USB thumb drives or hard drives, without the need for a computer.

Features

30-in/30-out USB 2.0 audio interface with reference-class converters and full 24-bit/192 kHz operation – crystal-clear, transparent audio for high-end home studios and commercial audio production facilities
SteadyClock: Jitter-immune, super-stable digital clock – converters operate independently from external clock signals, for a pristine sound quality
Four digitally-controlled, high-transparency preamps feed eight A/D converters – every microphone channel uses a double, parallel A/D conversion on two A/D converters at the same time to reach exceptional signal-to-noise values and performance level not available with classic converter design
Bright multi-functional color display with full front-panel metering for all 60 channels plus effect bus, and complete control of all key features - directly from the front of the UFX II
2 x high-speed low-jitter MIDI I/Os (32 channels)
DURec (Direct USB Recording) integrated digital recorder – record all inputs and outputs directly to USB thumb drives or hard drives with up to 2TB capacity, via the front USB port without the need for a computer
TotalMix FX latency-free, real-time mixer allows for practically unlimited mixing and routing operations, with all inputs and playback channels simultaneously, to any hardware outputs – can be fully controlled on an iPad with TotalMix FX for iPad app (available separately)
TotalMix FX provides 3-band parametric equalizer, low-cut, echo, reverb, compressor, expander, and auto-level
Standalone operation – using the three rotary encoders and the color display the Fireface UFX II can be configured and set up completely at the device
Setup Recall – internal memory allows for the permanent storage of six different states of the unit
Operates in driver-based USB 2.0 and Class Compliant modes
Integrates with RME ARC USB remote controller (available separately)
