RME does what they do best - and they did it again!
31.01.2017
I am not sure what else could be said about RME that hasn't wasn't said already...

This thing is built like a freakin' tank. One thing that some might not like is that the three encoders have a slight wobble to them. I don't mind. They work nicely.

LCD is nice and sharp, if a bit on the small side of things. Definitely helps when the unit is running standalone, though. Operation is pretty intuitive, I figured how to get around without reading the manual.

However one thing you WILL need the manual for, is the TotalMix software. I'm coming from TC Electronic Impact Twin, with its TC Near software which is MUCH simpler and not nearly as flexible. TotalMix can do pretty much everything. And then some other things nobody else does, I'm pretty sure. I recommend going through the manual, and then if that's not enough, get the Groove videos (TotalMix Explained). You will need it, unless you have good background in mixing desks (I don't).

Sound... Well I'll be damned if this doesn't sound better, more precise, crisper than my old Impact Twin. Great converters! Probably not the BEST out there, but for the price... extremely great conversion. I am planning on expanding my I/O with a Ferrofish A32 unit, connected to UFX+ via MADI. Then I won't need to use a submixer for all my rack synths (I have a fair amount of them).

Connecting this to my W10 PC via Thunderbolt was easy - just make sure you have up to date drivers for TB!

One thing I wish this interface had is an auto-muting headphone output, like on my TC Impact Twin. This means when you plug headphones in, master output is cut. Not sure if this scenario is handled by TotalMix, I should probably ask on RME forums... or get the ARC remote (but I don't really need it...)


Fantastic interface! I am certain it will serve me well for years to come!

Multiple issues, RME support non-existent
dcaudio, 27.02.2020
I bought this based on RME's seemingly stellar reputation, to get the best interface I could that would last me many years.

I don't have a clue what was so different about my computer, but I had nothing but problems from the moment I plugged it in. I never had any such problems with my old interface (an entry level focusrite, cost about £150). Constant dropouts, just completely unusable. It took a near complete PC rebuild, after a week of troubleshooting and trying every solution I could find, to get it remotely functional.

It's still not without problems, but at least now it works enough for me to get work done. It does sound really quite fantastic. Some basic functionality still doesn't work for me, but overall it can do most of what I need it to, and I can live without the things it's still having problems with.

RME support, I will say, is possibly the worst of any company I've ever dealt with. I got one email back saying "your computer is at fault", zero indication what those faults may be or how to fix them, and both of my follow up emails were completely ignored. I'd expect better service from the place that sells me coffee, let alone a top end company charging top end prices.

In summary - while it's mostly functional now, I wish I'd never bought it. I won't ever consider buying RME again, and I won't recommend RME to anyone.

Everything it suppose to be
Masabumi, 14.07.2017
Products of such quality and functionality are rare, and this one is equipped to be a long term investment. The sound is amazing, but what blew me out is the dynamic range. And last but not least - well written drivers.
I highly recommend!
