How to “study” with RME’s Fireface UFX
San Diego State University is a public research
university in California. It is the third-oldest location of
the California State University system and among the
state’s leading research institutions. Nearly 32.000
­students are currently enrolled.
The School of Theatre, Television & Film faculty offered
a two-day workshop for students under the guidance
of Professor Markus Burger (Coordinator of Music
­Technology at Fullerton College). This was a unique
­opportunity to find out how easy it is to record one’s
own compositions with the right tools.
The available equipment included DPA and Gefell studio
­microphones, Focusrite preamps for drums and Audient
preamps for piano, saxophone, Rhodes and bass. The
­Fireface UFX and Pro Tools 11 were used for recording.
Engineer Mario Gonzales (Musical Director for Sheila E.)
was enthusiastic about the results, and Markus Burger
expressed similar thoughts:
“The RME drivers are superb and working
with TotalMix FX is a no-brainer.”

Two-day recording workshop
for students
- DPA and Gefell studio ­microphones
- Focusrite and Audient preamps
- Pro Tools 11 software
- RME Fireface UFX interfaces
Easy recording with RME’s stable drivers
and the integrated TotalMix FX Zero
Latency internal DSP based mixer
Fireface UFX
60 audio channels, digitally controlled high-end preamps,
­reference class conversion, a complete effects section and
192 kHz operation - the Fireface UFX is a highly integrated
­professional audio solution, a complete studio within a
19-inch device.
The additional integrated recording feature for all inputs and
outputs allows USB recording of up to 60 channels using pen
drives, USB disk drives, or SD card readers - with or without a
computer connected to the UFX.
As the UFX includes the usually externally added monitoring
controller, it also preserves the original sound, as its hardware
output stays directly connected to the studio monitors. The
UFX is not only a perfect desktop level controller, but a monitor
switcher and source selector with integrated talkback function
for modern Mix-In-the-Box studios.
And there is more: TotalMix FX, the internal DSP based mixer,
provides hardware based mixing/routing and internal effects
with a multitude of useful features and optimised handling.
