The Fireface 800 is a classic Firewire audio interface from RME. Famous for compatibility, superb software drivers and ongoing support for products, RME is in a class of one in the industry

The Fireface 800 has eight standard line inputs & outputs plus headphone outputs, mic inputs, instrument inputs and comprehensive digital i/o with Wordclock, Firewire 400 & 800 and two sets of TOSlink connectors for ADAT-style i/o. This allows sixteen more channels of digital i/o using external interfaces. It’s also a full-featured Midi interface

Sample rates are up to 192 KHz and the FF880 can be clocked internally or externally. Wordclock in/out is on standard BNC connectors

The freely-downloable RME Totalmix FX software can be used to configure the FF800, to route audio between inputs & outputs and create headphone mixes

There is a dedicated headphone output on the front panel, driven by outputs 9 & 10. The speaker monitoring output is normally driven by audio outputs 1 & 2 and there are Dim, Mono and Phase controls on the speaker outputs, giving the FF800 a complete monitor section

A complete description of the Fireface 800 and its capabilities can be found on the multilingual RME website

“RME have always had possibly the best driver support of any range of audio cards I’ve ever come across, with regular updates and consistent reliability, and this extends to the Fireface” – Sound on Sound

“One of the reasons I really like RME hardware is that it tends to offer the most rock-solid clocking of any device in its price range” – Sound on Sound

“I have had it running on 3 pc’s and now on a mac. Installation has always been a 2 second procedure and never had a hiccup”

“I’ve had the RME Fireface 800 for over 6 years now. I’ve changed my computer 3 times now but had no reason to do so with the Fireface 800. This Audio Interface is simply stable as a rock, flexible with it’s inputs and outputs, and offers great low latency settings”
