RME ARC-USB Reviews

If you own any RME and run Totalmix you need this!

I purchased this as I was tired of reaching way over to the rack to control volume on my Fireface UFX+. It can do way more than this to control other parameters of Totalmix too. I plugged it in and it worked - no setup necessary!

Great Tool for Controlling TotalMix!!

If you're tired of manually changing the settings and parameters on TotalMix and swapping back and forth between your DAW windows and TM, then this is the controller for you. The assignable functions allow you to customize the controller to fit your needs. It also has a foot switch input as well, which I've got assigned to talkback. The controller feels robust and it's def got some weight to it. The jog wheel is very firm with high resolution. It works smoothly with my RME UFX and Macbook Pro Late 2013 15' (OSX 10.9.5). They nailed it!

Worth it

Seemed overpriced, but is just as well built as my other RME gear. I use it with my UfX II to quickly adjust my main volume and two headphones volume. The mono/stereo button switch is also handy. I think it could have fewer buttons since most folks like me only need a few functions but I don't mind too much. 4.5 stars but have to round to 4. The only downside is that when the studio is dark it's hard to figure out which button does what. The tactile design could have perhaps been more dark friendly since most studios are darker. Fewer buttons or some other way to know which one you're selecting (eg headphone 1 vs headphone 2).

Great
