Tons of I/O - in a Compact, Sleek PackageFlawless 192kHz sound quality, easy USB connectivity, impressive 10-in/12-out recording capabilities, all offered in a sleek "go anywhere" interface - how could it possibly get cooler than the RME Babyface?! With this beauty on your desktop, you're tapped into that raved-about RME sound quality. Just connect the breakout cable to the back of the Babyface and start hooking up your gear. You've got two microphone inputs to tackle your stereo recording projects. And you can use the hi-Z input (in place of one of the mic inputs) when you want to record your guitar or bass directly.
Is it time to record a full band? Just connect your favorite ADAT-equipped piece of gear - say, an 8-channel microphone preamp - and you'll be set for those bigger recording sessions. And with ADAT output, you've got a lot of I/O, considering the Babyface's super-small footprint. Speaking of I/O, the Babyface comes with TotalMix FX mixer/router software that's powered by hardware DSP. You can flexibly route your audio and apply high-end effects, including a 3-band parametric EQ, reverb, and echo. The hardware also calculates RMS and Peak levels for all channels without taxing your CPU at all - very cool.
For a pristine listening experience, RME gave the Babyface's headphone output a separate D/A converter. The headphone output is conveniently available on the unit itself and also on the breakout cable. Finishing off the connectivity, there are four sets of analog outs (2 x XLR, 2 x TRS) as well as MIDI I/O.
To take charge of your Babyface, get your hands on the elegantly simple surface. There are one main knob and two buttons that let you steer your recording projects. With this simple setup, you're in charge of all typical studio tasks: volume control, reference volume store/recall, volume dim, input selection/switching, and input gain control. And the LED bars serve you as both level and gain meters, so you've got a precise indication of everything that's going on with your Babyface.

by Paul G from Seminole, FLI was looking upgrade to my ECHO Gina PCI card (which I always loved before it died) that would be a next level improvement . I am very pleased with the Babyface and it is noticeably superior soundi... read more [+]ng. My wife who doesn't care noticed the sound difference right away. It is just clearer, cleaner and more detailed. . I checked the latency and round trip I am at 4.8 ms with 128 buffer and 88K sampling which is phenomenal for a USB2 interface. Very easy setup and not difficult in use. I am so happy I just went for a Babyface . close [-]

It's More Machine than I need!

But I had a trusted audio engineer set everything up and it now produces as good a sound as my home studio gear. I really like the zippered pouch that comes with the Babyface. Makes stashing it when travelling easy. close [-]

Im now getting familiar with the " Better Sound"
I am truly an RME evangelist. The stability of RME's driver and software, the quality of the preamps, as well as their clocking and jitter supression make RME products an absolute STANDARD in my studio. If you're sick of issues of interfaces not being cross-platform, then go with the RME Babyface as a portable interface. For its size, it has more I/O and equal or better quality than the other portable boxes out there.
