  • 1Description
The Fireface UCX from RME is a USB/FireWire digital audio interface that provides thirty-six channels of audio (eighteen inputs and outputs) with all channels available simultaneously. It features two, low distortion, digitally controlled microphone preamps with up to 65 dB of gain, excellent signal to noise ratio, and a flat frequency response. Each channel can be individually switched to deliver 48V phantom power.

Two front panel TRS inputs can operate as Hi-Z inputs for plugging in up to two guitars or other instruments with no other hardware required. LEDs for signal, clip, and activated phantom power give a complete overview of the unit's status. AutoSet allows for digitally controlling the gain in the event of impending overload to prevent clipping the A/D converter, while simultaneously not degrading sound quality that would occur if using additional analog circuitry.

The included DSP-based TotalMix software mixer supports full independent routing and mixing of all eighteen inputs and output channels to all eighteen physical outputs. Up to nine independent stereo sub-mixes, plus a comprehensive control room section, offer excellent monitoring capabilities and routing flexibility. The software includes a complete effects engine with all effects available at all sample rates.

The per channel effects include three-band parametric EQ, adjustable low cut filter, auto level, compressor, expander, MS processing and phase reversal. Reverb and echo effects are available for all channels via a stereo send and return bus. The effects section not only adds a lot of flexibility to the recording chain, but makes latency burdened recording obsolete. The main functions of TotalMix can be remote controlled via MIDI with any Mackie Control compatible controller.

Interface

  • Low latency mastering grade converters
  • Two microphone preamps using technology from RME's Micstasy and UFX interfaces, including the AutoSet overload protection

  • Coaxial S/PDIF input/output at up to 192 kHz sample rate
  • ADAT input/output expands the interface by eight channels, available simultaneously with the analog channels, or used as optical S/PDIF
  • ADAT supports sample rates of up to 192 kHz (S/MUX4)
  • Wordclock input and output (BNC) with switchable termination
  • Two high speed MIDI I/Os on breakout cable

  • Unlimited undo and redo
  • FX sends and returns - one send bus for every input/playback channel with reverb/echo
  • Expandable channel view for channel settings, EQ and dynamics setup
  • Slim channel mode for selected or all channels, to save space or give a meter bridge view
