The RME Babyface Pro 24-Channel 192 kHz USB Bus-Powered Audio Interface is designed for a wide variety of studio and live recording applications.

Expertly crafted from a block of aluminum, this portable interface features a new XLR socket that integrates seamlessly into the housing. Parallel 6.3mm TRS and 3.5mm mini headphone jacks feature separate driver stages to match low and high impedance headphones.

The interface ships with the company's TotalMix FX, a software mixer available for Windows, Mac OS X and iOS on an iPad. When using the device with an iPad, an external power adapter must be used, as the iPad alone is unable to power the interface. The mixer software allows you to use the interface in a wide variety of situations, from simple mixing of signals to more complicated routing configurations.

The unit's FPGA-based DSP mixer adds a flexible 3-band parametric equalizer on all inputs and outputs. Combined with the unit's low latency AD/DA converters and the company's unique SteadyClock technology to reduce jitter, the interface offers a professional recording solution in a compact form factor.

FPGA Chip

Uses a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) which enables flexible DSP processing

Class Compliant

Enables native support by operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and hardware like Apple's iPad, without the need for proprietary drivers

SteadyClock

Uses a highly efficient jitter reduction circuit to allow the converters to operate as if they were working with an internal clock at all times

TotalMix FX

Provides fully flexible mixing/routing for both studio and live applications via the company's hardware mixer
