RME Fireface 400 Firewire Recording Interface RMEs Fireface 800 revolutionized the world of FireWire audio interfaces. Now the revolution continues: The Fireface 400 is not just the little brother of the Fireface 800 - it is a completely newly designed device. It is the only device in its class with active jitter suppression, stand-alone functionality, complete controllability from the front panel, highly flexible I/Os in professional quality, and an unsurpassed 648-Channel matrix router - at sample rates up to 192 kHz.
|MPN (manufacturer part number)||FIREFACE400|
|Features||As usual, RME offer a host of sophisticated features and characteristics with the fastest Firewire technology. These include: Two digitally controlled Mic Preamps in high-end quality Two balanced universal inputs for line and instrument signals SteadyClock for maximum jitter suppression and clock refresh Simple stand-alone operation with rotary encoder and front panel display 54 Level Meter Peak/RMS, hardware-calculated Full mobility by Bus Power support DIGICheck, RME's unique meter and analysis tool TotalMix: 648-Channel mixer with 42-bit internal resolution FireWire audio by RME is seen as the reference by both users and editors. Thanks to an internal flash memory, all settings including TotalMix are recalled during boot. The device can thus be configured and used as a stand-alone device, without being connected to a computer, e.g. as a submixer, A/D and D/A-converter, headphone mixer, format converter, instrument or microphone pre-amplifier, monitoring mixer and much more. The Fireface 400 is equipped with SteadyClock(TM), RME's unique sync and clock technology. With this, the device becomes a sync reference for the whole studio. SteadyClock refreshes clock signals, removes jitter, and takes care of optimal AD/DA conversion quality, thus guarantees a sensational sound quality, completely independent from the reference clock's quality. SteadyClock allows the unit to control the sample rate freely on its own. The Settings dialog includes a direct choice of the video and audio world's most often used sample rates. Additionally, two faders can be used to set the sample rate freely and in real-time, within the range of +/- 4% and +/- 0.4%. Of course the Fireface 400 offers a second FireWire port for hub functionality. Up to three devices can be connected to one FireWire interface and operated in parallel. The renowned Fireface 800 shares the same driver, allowing mixed setups.|
