Anaheim, CA (January 6, 2020)–RME will officially launch its RME Babyface Pro FS audio interface next week at the NAMM Show. The unit sports RME’s proprietary SteadyClock FS technology, increased headphone power and plug-ins Scuffham Amps, Gig Performer, and Brainworx via the Plugin Alliance.
According to the company, RME has improved the mic preamps and AD/DA converters, and has added in the same headphone circuit used in the company’s ADI-2 Pro series. The unit will also ship with both a USB 2 and USB C cable.
Plug-ins that will ship with the Babyface Pro FS include Scuffham Amps S-Gear guitar amp simulator, Gig Performer Brainworx BX Opto, Brianworx BX Masterdesk mastering tools, Pianoteq 6 by Modartt and Blue3 by GG Audio.
The RME Babyface Pro FS includes the company’s SteadyClock FS circuit with the intent of providing low jitter and high jitter immunity, aiming to improve converter performance and raise audio quality to reference class performance.
The unit includes two digitally controlled preamps providing individually switchable 48V phantom power. These improved new circuits feature a gain range of 76 dB, adjustable in steps of 1 dB, including a relay-driven PAD.
For the main I/O, RME has designed an XLR socket which integrates into the housing and saves space. The feature set also includes an optical TOSLINK I/O to be used as either an ADAT port with SMUX support or SPDIF for sessions up to 192 kHz. In combination with an external ADAT converter, the Babyface Pro FS fully supports 12 analog inputs as well as 12 outputs. Users can plug any guitar, line or high impedance into the Babyface Pro FS’s jack inputs 3 and 4 and record on-the-go with no additional hardware required. A MIDI I/O via an included breakout cable is also provided.
The Babyface Pro FS and all of RME’s new products will be at Synthax’s NAMM Show booth 14702 in the ACC North Hall.
