Description

The Fireface 802 renews RME’s reputation built on the legendary Fireface 800. 60 channels of audio, high-end microphone preamps, reference class converters, a complete effects section and operation at up to 192 kHz are the base for many more features: Ultra-low latency operation with USB or FireWire, combined with the legendary RME driver stability and maintenance. Active jitter suppression, individually switchable reference levels for all inputs and outputs, full stand-alone functionality, RME’s unique DIGICheck metering and analysis toolbox, and identical operation on Windows PC and Mac. TotalMix FX, RME’s digital high-end mixer and signal router, driven by two powerful DSPs, with integrated EQ, Dynamics and Reverb/Echo effects at up to 192 kHz, plus a built-in monitoring controller. 
 The full-blown feature set also includes optional Class Compliant mode and operation with TotalMix FX for iPad, RME’s app to fully control the 802 from the iPad, without any computer. The easy to use app includes metering for all 90 channels plus effects bus, different setup screens, and complete control of all features. The Fireface 802 is a highly integrated pro audio solution, a full-blown studio, all within a 19” enclosure. An interface designed for users who don’t want to make compromises in sound, stability and ultra-low latency operation, and who long for an unrivaled professional feature set. Once again a milestone interface from RME, including the best of the best and even a bit more.

Audio Interface - Low Latency Performance Data Base

Any chance to see results for new Fireface 802 ? I imagine it's similar to UCX/UFX but still would be nice to find out.

Happy with your setup? What lessons have you learned?

...controllers to something and recording automation. Cost of learning this lesson: Spirit mixer, Yamaha 01V, Mackie 24-4, Mackie Onyx. Solution: RME Fireface 802, a very small Behringer 1002FX for when I do need a basic mixer, and an Akai MG614 that I still need to experiment with. I love samplers and sampling, but I really don't...

Audio interface with no mic pres and no headphone out?

...I need at least 8 analog ins and outs to be converted. Otherwise, it looks like I'll be going for a Fireface 802, UFX II, or the Lynx Aurora USB 8. ORRR just keep the Steinberg UR824 and forget all about splitting hairs. Haha any advice or opinions?
