Flexible I/O What can you do with 36 inputs and outputs? Lots! You can record up to 8 analog and 10 digital channels onto 18 separate tracks. As for inputs, you have four balanced TRS ins on the rear of the Fireface UCX, and on the front panel you have two XLR inputs with Mic/Line preamps (65 dB Gain) and two Hi-Z capable TRS Line/Instrument inputs.
The audio interface has six balanced TRS outputs on the rear, all available for ASIO Direct Monitoring, plus one additional TRS stereo headphones (playback channels 7/8) out on the front, which offers high volumes even with high-impedance headphones.
Hybrid FireWire/USB Interface RME's updated Hammerfall-X-Core bus technology allows the Fireface UCX to include both FireWire 400 and USB connections, including support for high-speed USB 3.0, all in a space-saving half-rack format.
High-Performance Preamps and Converters As you might expect from an RME interface, the Fireface UCX's high-performance AD/DA converters deliver 192 kHz resolution audio plus second-to-none S/N and THD specifications across a wide analog level range. RME's Hammerfall converters are designed to reduce the overall latency of timing critical applications in both live situations and in computer-based recording studios.
Enjoy tracking with two high-performance microphone and instrument preamps with digitally controlled gain and +48V phantom power. Built right in to the front panel, these pres are right where you want them so you can plug, play, and record with extremely low distortion, excellent signal-to-noise ratio, and a flat frequency response. These transparent preamps capture your audio signal exactly as it is without coloring it or changing it in any way, making the Fireface UCX an especially good choice for recording acoustic music.
RME's AutoSet overload protection feature provides dramatic gain reduction without the use of a limiter, so you always get clip-free audio.
TotalMix FX DSP for Latency-Free Processing, Monitoring, and FX Thanks to its DSP-based TotalMix FX engine built into the interface, the Fireface UCX is able to use one DSP chip for monitor mixing and the other for latency-free effects and processing. The TotalMix mixer also supports fully independent routing and mixing of all 18 input and playback channels to all 18 physical outputs. And for even more routing flexibility and extra monitoring capabilities, you have up to 9 independent stereo submixes and a comprehensive Control Room section.
Each channel offers dedicated EQ and dynamics, along with reverb and delay processing, so you can work with just the FX and processing you need for the task at hand, without adding any latency to the mix.
Plenty of audio interfaces come with "DSP mixers" that run on your host computer -- but the Fireface UCX has DSP chips on board, so you can track with the effects you need without adding latency or weighing down your host computer's processors.
Digital I/O, Word Clock, and MIDI Onboard The Fireface UCX provides a coaxial SPDIF I/O working at up to 192 kHz, plus one 8-channel ADAT I/O that expands the interface by 8 channels available simultaneously with the analog channels. For even more flexibility, the ADAT I/O can be used as optical SPDIF I/O. And for universal usability, the audio interface sports Word Clock in and out with switchable termination, plus MIDI I/O on a breakout cable.
Class Compliant Mode As a Class Compliant interface, the Fireface UCX can be used with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux-based systems, as well as your iPad or iPad 2 when you use the Camera Connection Kit.
