RMEs Fireface 800 revolutionized the world of FireWire audio interfaces. Now the revolution continues: The Fireface 400 is not just the little brother of the Fireface 800 - it is a completely newly designed device. It is the only device in its class with active jitter suppression, stand-alone functionality, complete controllability from the front panel, highly flexible I/Os in professional quality, and an unsurpassed 648-Channel matrix router - at sample rates up to 192 kHz. As usual, RME offer a host of sophisticated features and characteristics with the fastest Firewire technology. These include:

  • Two digitally controlled Mic Preamps in high-end quality
  • Two balanced universal inputs for line and instrument signals
  • SteadyClock for maximum jitter suppression and clock refresh
  • Simple stand-alone operation with rotary encoder and front panel display
  • 54 Level Meter Peak/RMS, hardware-calculated
  • Full mobility by Bus Power support
  • DIGICheck, RME's unique meter and analysis tool
  • TotalMix: 648-Channel mixer with 42-bit internal resolution
