RME adds stand-alone and Class Compliant modes to Babyface

RME Babyface and iPad

RME have added two key features to the Babyface. Like its big brother, the Fireface UCX, the RME Babyface now features full USB Audio 2.0 Class Compliance for connections to the iPad™ and a stand-alone mode. The update is free of charge and can add the features yourself with a simple firmware update via USB.

The release of this update further confirms the Babyface as the industries leading small portable USB bus powered interface that boasts rock solid drivers and excellent converter quality. Its 10 inputs and 12 outputs also makes the Babyface more than just an “audio notebook”, but rather a comprehensive and feature rich interface at a price that suits all budgets. A true all-rounder.

OPTO-X Extension Board for the HDSPe MADI FX


The OPTO-X is an alternative extension board for the HDSPe MADI FX triple MADI card. It comes fitted with optical fibre MADI I/O rather than the expansion board with coaxial BNC MADI I/O which is shipped as standard with the HDSPe MADI FX.
