The Fireface 400 from RME is a multi-channel FireWire audio interface for use with both the Mac and Windows. The eight analog inputs and outputs (balanced, output 7/8 unbalanced) are equipped with software controlled switching of reference levels. Channels 1 and 2 provide two microphone inputs with a digitally controlled input stage, individually switchable 48V phantom power and Neutrik Combo connectors for XLR and TRS.

Digital connectivity is provided by ADAT Lightpipe I/O along with coaxial S/PDIF which is AES/EBU compatible. BNC connectors allow for inputting and outputting Wordclock. The Fireface 400 is equipped with SteadyClock, the company's sync and clock technology that allows the unit to function as a sync reference for a whole studio. SteadyClock refreshes clock signals, removes jitter and provides optimal conversion quality, irrespective of the quality of the reference clock.

With the inclusion of internal flash memory, all settings are recalled during boot. This allows the unit to be configured and used as a stand-alone device, without being connected to a computer. Active jitter suppression, stand-alone functionality, complete controllability from the front panel, highly flexible professional quality I/Os and a 648-channel matrix router at sample rates up to 192kHz, make the Fireface a complete solution for digital audio.

Features:

  • FireWire based audio interface for Mac and Windows
  • Functions as a stand alone device with rotary encoder and front panel display
  • Two high quality digitally controlled microphones preamps
  • Two balanced universal inputs for line and instrument signals
  • ADAT optical I/O allows for connection and insertion of effects devices, mixing consoles or external

converters. These eight channels are available simultaneously with the analog channels

  • RME's SteadyClock provides maximum jitter suppression and clock refresh
  • Can be bus-powered for the ultimate in flexibility
