The RME Fireface just got even better. This newest generation of RME’s reliable little recording boxes manages to fit even more features into its quality metal chassis alongside its premium onboard mic preamps and world-class digital converters.

Origin Story

The 2014 RME Fireface UCX combines the most popular features of the Fireface UFX, Fireface 400 U/C, and RME Babyface pro recording units into a single box. The result is a quality mobile recording interface that can hold up to both the scrutiny of the studio and the rigors of the road. This class-compliant device records audio and MIDI to your Mac or PC, or directly into your iPhone or iPad.

Recording I/O

The Fireface UCX provides up to 18 channels of ins (8 analog, 10 digital) and 18 channels of outs to accommodate demanding recording sessions with large orchestras and ensembles. All 18 channels can be used concurrently to record up to 18 tracks at 24-bit/48 kHZ, or 12 channels at 192 kHz to your Mac or PC.

TotalMix FX

RME’s included TotalMix FX software allows you to control mixer settings from your computer for fast leveling on the fly. As the name implies, TotalMix FX includes digital reverbs, delays, compressors, and EQs which can be monitored live by performers without coloring the recorded signal. This feature is great for vocalists who don’t like the tone of their voice through headphones or need to hear themselves in a big hall in order to control their dynamics.

Gain settings can be saved as one of six internal presets for such common applications as recording full drumsets and pulling live mixer feeds.

Studio Quality on the Go

Fireface UCX’s rock solid analog-digital conversion and stable word clock ensure that what you hear coming out of your monitor headphones is what makes it to tape. And for mobile recording convenience, the UCX has two (2) onboard microphone preamps to allow you record stereo guitars & drums, field material, or direct electric bass without packing your whole rig.

Class Compliant

The class-compliant Fireface UCX can record music directly to iPhone and iPad for unheard of mobility at this price point and quality. Handles up to 8 channels of audio or MIDI at sample rates up to 96 kHz.
