The RME BabyFace Pro Audio Interface packs a whopping 24-channel audio interface into a stylish aluminium chassis that happily sits on your desktop, allowing you to capture professional recordings, wherever you are. Incorporating newly designed analogue and digital circuits, RME's innovative design team have created an energy efficient powerhouse that offers exceptional recording fidelity without compromise. As ever, RME have ensured that your recordings are captured and preserved with peerless clarity.
Seamless Integration and Connectivity
During the build process of the new BabyFace Pro, RME designed and integrated a new XLR socket, which seamlessly slots inside the chassis to save space. The XLR inputs have two digitally controlled preamps with switchable 48V phantom power. The circuits feature a whopping gain range of 76dB to accommodate the most delicate of microphones, with a relay-driven PAD, as well as signal overload protection to prevent unwanted signal degradation of damage to the device.
The BabyFace Pro boasts two Line in or Hi-Z inputs for directly connecting a guitar, bass or other instrument - with digital gain control on all inputs. There are two headphone outputs, with TRS and mini-jack sockets that have separate low and high impedance drivers to match the requirements for low and high impedance headphones.
The optical TOSLINK connection can be used as either an ADAT port with SMUX support, or SPDIF to capture sessions up to an enviable 192kHz. When used in combination with an external ADAT converter, this little beauty supports 12 analogue inputs and 12 outputs - perfect for capturing live sessions without any fuss at all. The BabyFace Pro even supports MIDI, giving you everything you need to get the job done.
The integrated TotalMix FX software provides a DSP-based mixer that offers fully independent routing and mixers of all inputs to all outputs. There are even up to 15 independent stereo submixes, a wide range of monitoring capabilities and wide-reaching routing flexibility. Across every channel there is a 3-band parametric EQ, as well as a selection of Dynamic controls including: adjustable Low Cut, Auto Level, Compressor, Expander, MS Processing, and phase reversal. Thanks to the two DSPs, the effects performance remains stable during the most demanding of recording sessions. However, to prevent unwanted overload, built-in automatic overload surveillance deactivates all effects that exceed the DSP’s performance.
Class Compliant Energy Saver
Thanks to the Class Compliant mode, the BabyFace Pro supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux distributions, and communicates perfectly with hardware including the iPad. No need to download drivers, simply plug in and you’re good to go.
The BabyFace Pro audio interface is the perfect recording partner for whatever situation comes your way. With up to 24 potential channels at your disposal, you have everything you need to capture a complete band set-up. Thanks to the highly efficient energy saving features, the device happily draws the power it requires via the USB connection during mobile applications.
