The RME Babyface Pro is a 24-Channel 192 kHz bus-powered professional USB 2.0 Audio Interface.
Featuring a completely new XLR socket, Babyface Pro now integrates seamlessly into the housing and saves space. Two headphone outputs offering TRS and mini-jack sockets are in parallel with completely separate driver stages that perfectly match low and high impedance headphones.
Two digitally controlled preamps provide individually switchable 48V ‘phantom power. These brand new circuits feature gain of up to 70 dB, adjustable in steps of 3 dB, plus a relay-driven PAD, resulting in exceptional EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) performance as well as line overload protection, and enough gain for even the lowest level microphones.
Babyface Pro’s efficient design almost never requires an external power supply – it’s perfectly stable on USB 3 bus power, and also most USB 2 ports, with no degradation in any technical specification. This it ideal for mobile recording applications.
An optical TOSLINK I/O is offered for use as either an ADAT port with SMUX support or SPDIF for sessions up to 192 kHz. In combination with an external ADAT converter, the Babyface Pro fully supports 12 analogue inputs as well as 12 outputs, making it ideal for both live and studio multi-track applications. You can plug any instrument, line or high impedance, into Babyface Pro’s jack inputs 3 & 4. MIDI I/O via an included breakout cable completes the package.
Babyface Pro ships with RME’s TotalMix FX, available for Windows and Mac OS X. An iOS version is available as well. The FPGA-based DSP mixer adds a flexible, 3-band parametric equaliser to all inputs and outputs. Reverb and delay FX are also provided.
Latest generation low latency AD/DA converters, combined with RME’s unique SteadyClock technology, result in exceptional specifications that will satisfy the most demanding of professionals.
