Key Info

Whether you’re tracking instruments and recording vocals or need a fully-fledged field mixer on the road, the RME Fireface UCX II can do it all.

Powerful, portable and versatile

Whether you’re tracking instruments and recording vocals or need a fully-fledged field mixer on the road, the RME Fireface UCX II can do it all. This highly versatile and ultra-compact interface makes the recording process smoother than ever, providing you with two high-grade mic/line preamps designed to capture every nuance of your performance. The new and improved design sees a range of upgrades and enhancements designed to streamline your use. For example, the latest plug and pug technology is included so you can get setup and recording within minutes. The integrated routing solution also helps to improve efficiency and the intuitive Settings dialog allows you to navigate parameters with ease.

The 40-channel configuration is perfect for the stage or the studio, with the unit being able to function as a standalone interface with a front-panel control section for ease of use. Using the four keys and encoder you can quickly and easily navigate between settings and parameters and even save up to six mixer states using the internal memory. If that’s not enough, it can even be controlled via MIDI for added flexibility.

Wide range of analog and digital connectivity

No matter what your gear is, the Fireface UCX II will almost certainly have a connection for it. With the swiss-army knife collection of connections, the UCX II gives you all the tools you need to process virtually any analog or digital signal. The rear panel features analog balanced line I/O, MIDI I/O, ADAT I/O, AES/EBU connections and even S/PDIF I/O just to name a few. It also utilises the latest jitter-reduction technology (SteadClockFS) basing the design on a femtosecond clock for the utmost accuracy.

DuRec (Direct USB Recording)

One of the most unique features of the Fireface is the DuRec (Direct USB Recording) function. This function provides an integrated digital recorder, directly recording to a USB memory device such as a USB memory stick or hard drives (Up to 2 TB capacity) making it perfect for capturing all the inputs and outputs. The front panel of the unit features the USB port needed to connect your memory drive, independent from a PC or Mac.

RME’s TotalMix FX

The included real-time mixer, TotalMix FX, allows for fully independent routing and mixing to various physical outputs simultaneously. This means sending independent stereo sub mixes of both input and playback channels to all physical outputs.

A version of RME’s TotalMix FX, available for Windows, Mac and iOS systems, is included with the RME Fireface UCX II. This allows the user to apply EQ, reverb and delays to all inputs and outputs. Designed to utilise the full capabilities of the Fireface interface, TotalMix FX is a great tool for users regularly recording in different locations.

RME’s TotalMix Remote

RME’s latest software, TotalMix Remote, further enhances the functionality of the Fireface. This allows for remote control of the Fireface from multiple devices. This becomes greatly beneficial when using the UCX II in live environments, allowing you to walk around the space and adjust the sound. This is similarly beneficial when you are monitoring in an external control room to the studio space.
