Incredible audio interface!
Jorge Pallares 12.06.2020
This is an amazing USB Audio Interface. I've always trusted the RME brand. These guys can make the best possible hardware and affordable prices considering the features and benefits they offer. The RME Babyface Pro FS is no exception.

It's got pristine sound quality. Great quality of conversion in both the DAC and ADC sides. Stable clock technology from the new SteadyClock FS. Great transparent preamps. Great outputs for the headphones. Incredibly low levels of low noise and distortion.

Best performance and low latency. No hiccups of any kind. Can use extremely low audio buffer sizes as low as 48 or 64 samples, without any issues in Ableton Live 10 Suite and Logic Pro X.

Rock solid USB drivers. It's always reliable and trusty.

Awesome quality of construction. Built from a solid block of aluminum and the highest standards. Buttons, meters, dial control, cables, connections are all very nice, stable. Feels durable enough for many years to come.

Comes in solid black carrying case.

Great included software with TotalMix FX and others.

Only pros with this audio interface. There are no cons. Prices is fair for all that it offers.

Perfect for my needs
kamsan 01.12.2021
Significant boost in clarity and punchiness in sound quality, and it does not create a deafening 'pop' sound on my speakers when the device is powered on as opposed to my previous Audio Interface.

The driver is extremely on Windows, macOS and even iPadOS, and it has replaced my need to bring my laptop to record on the go, since the TotalMix software works great with GarageBand on my iPad with no glitches.

The build is like a tank and I foresee this device will last a very long time. A good investment for music producers.

RME Top in their game
Michael1970 16.06.2020
I use RME for 20 years now. No reason to look elsewhere. Their product is still top, audio quality is excellent, hardware based on previous experience should be long lasting(at least 10 years). Most importantly is there is long term support for their products. They don't just abandon an audio card after 2 years like others. Also they let their software and hardware people experiment to optimize staff. They results is that their drivers are ultra stable compared to other manufacturers who don't give their devs enough time to fix staff before moving to the next great thing. In short this Babyface Pro FS is what you expect if your used RME in the past, stability , good drivers, long term support, not cheap components on the pcb. I am not affiliated with RME in any way just a happy customer

The waste of money
Shadow_Avd 15.09.2021
Absolutely mediocre device but at inflated cost and with a lot of bugs and problems.

Actually, the main problem:
If you try to change your buffer size or sample rate when a one app is using this crap at least - you would hear the scratch or loose the sound at all. The only way to repair it - restarting apps. Besides your apps sound settings will be reset to default. And you will configure them from the onset.
I've used many similar devices which are much cheaper but they worked stably and had no problems in using.

Do you think pay around 600 euros for such 'entertainment' it's normal? Then buy it! Good luck. You will 'have fun' with it everytime and never be bored cause it just not working fine.

Other:
Sound quality is ordinary. Nothing paranormal. There are no differences in comparision with another devices.
The only good thing is the TotalMixFX with all of it's features and controls, nothing more. But DSP is bullshit with no compressor inside. If you wanna have a compressor - pay another +350 euros for UCX version.

Summing:
If you are not a wanker audiophile forget about this device like a horrible dream. Babyface has no advantages besides routing in TotalMix. All this words about 'stability' is nothing more than an cheeky lie from vendor. You'll always get sound interruptions, screeching, crashes and bugs on either system, either buffer size and sample rate.
You can buy any other device for less money and work on it without any problems. RME doesn't costs its price at all.
