Adding gain does not add much noise at all, so you can rest assured that you will get a clean recording.

Last edited by Wolffman; at The DA converter in the FF is very good compared to cheaper interfaces, but it may make your high end sound a little bit brittle or harsh.

The build quality is very good, and the most important fact: The Fireface excells as portable all-in-one solution when it comes to power supply. It results in fragmentation and unpredictable data drops, especially in the course of prolonged important sessions.

Review this product Get the facts.

This device also demonstrates advanced functionality for recording. The build is superb and if it was 40 be dropped from a reasonable height it would just shrug the impact off and keep performing as normal. Imprint Terms of Use Privacy Policy.

Filters at switch-selectable capacitors provide resistance to jitter of the master clock.


It’s not justified to use this device as a stereo interface for audio output. Well, it was a firefacf good unit as long as it worked. To be honest, it would be kind of awful rms an unit like this was actually difficult to use in a day to day work, other than when going deep into the matrix routing land. Overall a solid card for its time. Fireface Out of production! On the back of the unit you have 4 more line inputs and 6 outputs. Especially if we recall the unlimited time for computing when a project is downmixed into a file, bit floating point variables and bit FPU registers of the coprocessor.
