Musicmesse News Day 1 - RME releases a new Interface - the Fireface 802 60 Channel High End 192kHZ USB Firewire Audio Interface.
The Fireface 802 renews RME’s reputation built on the legendary Fireface 800. 60 channels of audio, high-end microphone preamps, reference class converters, a complete effects section and operation at up to 192 kHz are the base for many more features:
Ultra-low latency operation with USB or FireWire, combined with the legendary RME driver stability and maintenance. Active jitter suppression, individually switchable reference levels for all inputs and outputs, full stand-alone functionality, RME’s unique DIGICheck metering and analysis toolbox, and identical operation on Windows PC and Mac.
TotalMix FX, RME’s digital high-end mixer and signal router, driven by two powerful DSPs, with integrated EQ, Dynamics and Reverb/Echo effects at up to 192 kHz, plus a built-in monitoring controller.
The full-blown feature set also includes optional Class Compliant mode and operation with TotalMix FX for iPad, RME’s app to fully control the 802 from the iPad, without any computer. The easy to use app includes metering for all 90 channels plus effects bus, different setup screens, and complete control of all features.
The Fireface 802 is a highly integrated pro audio solution, a full-blown studio, all within a 19” enclosure. An interface designed for users who don’t want to make compromises in sound, stability and ultra-low latency operation, and who long for an unrivaled professional feature set. Once again a milestone interface from RME, including the best of the best and even a bit more.

Introducing the all new 6Pack analog multi-effect!
To call it revolutionary would be a bit strong, but Carl believes this is the first pro-quality, all analog, full programmable multi effect on the market!
The 6Pack makes it possible to use one of four presets in each of 99 Banks using the 6 different on-board effects. There are also 3 different external amp switching options which are also programmable.
Add to this impressive list of features... an insert point after the drive, master mute switch, tuner out, tap tempo and instant access so you can enter or remove any effect or preset on the fly!
The 6Pack is the most intuitive and simple multi effecton the market and has no midi, menus or sub-menus to scroll through when you need to make changes to your sound!
For each Preset, you engage the pedals you require for the preset, adjust all the parameters for each pedal and press store!
As usual, you can expect the solid steel casing, high quality switches and lighted pots, external switch mode AC Power supply and some new cosmetics.
This is analog heaven for guitar players who are serious about tone, love Carl Martin's effects and would like to simplify what's at their feet when they are gigging ...without going digital!
