The RME Fireface UCX provides 8 channels of premium input and output A/D conversion in a rock-solid, portable interface with high speed USB and Firewire connectivity. The Fireface UCX somehow manages pack-in a similar number of features into a half-rack space that would normally only be found in units that take up at least double this amount of space. The UCX truly is an outstanding example of german engineering at its finest, with over 300 electronic components packed away in a box that you can fit in your handbag. Combined with RME's TotalMix software, low latency recording and legendary DSP, portable audio interfaces don't get much better than this!
The Fireface UCX is not just a smaller version of the smash hit UFX, with the HFX-core, the preamps and the complete effects engine, the UCX continues the tradition of RME's tremendously successful compact interfaces.
