Fireface UFX III 188-Channel, 24-Bit and 192kHz High-End USB 3 Audio Interface with Four Inputs

The RME Fireface UFX III is the center of any multitrack studio, handling up to 94 channels I/O with ease. Its unprecedented flexibility, compatibility, the inclusion of DURec Direct USB Recording, and RME’s famous low latency hardware and driver designs guarantee flawless operation in any mode and application. Packed with professional features, including SteadyClock FS, MADI I/O 64 channels, a powerful DSP, USB 3.0 full 94 channel I/O Class Compliant ready, TotalMix FX, Direct USB Recording, and support for the Advanced Remote Control USB that is available separately, the Fireface UFX III is the professional’s preferred tool for multitrack recording, mixing, and mastering. The Fireface UFX III is based on a newly developed analog and digital board. While the analog board offers, for example, DC-coupled analog outputs as well as new AD and DA converters with improved THD plus N value, the digital board also enables interesting new features thanks to updated high-tech components.
Powerful USB 3 Performance
The front panel of the Fireface UFX III provides four high-performance XLR/TRS combo inputs for microphone, instrument, and line signals, two stereo headphone jacks with plus 19 dBu output level, MIDI I/O, and a USB port. In combination with the DURec function Direct USB Recording, the USB port allows independent recording of selected input and output signals up to 80 channels to a connected USB storage medium. The rear panel reveals the full connectivity of the Fireface UFX III. Besides another MIDI I/O, the two optical ADAT I/Os, an AES/EBU I/O, and eight balanced analog outputs with line level including XLR stereo monitor outputs are available. With the new Multi-Mode, the two ADAT I/Os can be used as separate optical SPDIF inputs and outputs in addition to the AES I/O. Furthermore, the Fireface UFX III offers an optical MADI interface SC with 64 bidirectional channels. The word clock connectors BNC work as additional coaxial MADI input and output if required.
Comprehensive MADI Connectivity
The Fireface UFX III opens the doors to a host of RME and 3rd party digital and analog I/O solutions. Expanding your analog channel count, the ability to route/mix within the digital domain through numerous sources presents many flexible options. Multiple external MADI devices can also be connected in series. To further enhance MADI flexibility, the Fireface UFX III boasts some typical RME-style features. For example in USB 2 mode, which is limited to 30 channels I/O 12 analog plus 16 ADAT plus AES, the MADI I/O is still available via RME’s integrated hardware mixer TotalMix FX. Word Clock I/O BNC can be switched to MADI I/O coaxial, and a special split mode even supports the use of both MADI I/Os simultaneously, with 32 channels each on optical and coaxial.
Powerful Applications for Mixing, Monitoring and Measurement
The Fireface UFX III comes with the TotalMix FX DSP mixer offering comprehensive routing and monitoring options, as well as the DIGICheck Analyzer which allows to measure and analyze the digital data feed in both directions with maximum precision. TotalMix FX can completely replace an external mixer, enabling the creation of multiple latency-free monitor mixes with EQ, Dynamics, Reverb, and Delay for any outputs, incl. main monitors and headphone mixes for musicians. The additional TotalMix Remote is a remote control for TotalMix FX, to control the hardware mixer and effects in RME audio interfaces. TotalMix Remote mirrors the current state of the host system on the iPad and Windows or Mac computers the entire mixing state, the complete routing, all FX settings, up to the level meters, and everything in real-time. Easily adjust all the mixer and FX settings from a distance, via Ethernet and WiFi.
DC-Coupled Outputs and CV or Gate Voltage Control
Most audio interfaces are traditionally designed with what is called 'AC-coupled outputs', where capacitors are used to filter out any extremely low frequencies. Whilst these frequencies are generally considered undesirable for audio eating into headroom and potentially causing damage to other equipment - one instance where DC-coupling remains desirable is the world of modular synthesizers, where static or slow-moving signals are used for control over various parameters such as pitch note values or LFOs. All of the Fireface UFX III’s line-level outputs are fully DC-coupled, allowing for the sending of control voltages CV or Gate information to modular synthesizers such as the popular Eurorack and Moog/MOTM/Synthesizers formats and other studio hardware.
