If you’re here right now, you definitely don’t mess around when it comes to professional audio gear. In terms of audio interfaces, it’s one of the biggest ranges it terms of features, quality and prices we’ve seen in the market. Unlike others pieces of gear out there, the gap is pretty huge, so when it comes to a pro interface, we hope you know what you’re doing. Today we are taking a look at RME Audio‘s brand new audio interface, the Babyface Pro. With 192 kHz quality, 24-channel, USB 2.0 bus-powered and some newly designed ins and outs, this thing is pretty fancy and really uplifts your setup. Let’s take a look at it in details.
We’ve all mainly known Arturia music gear for their amazing synths and software sounds, but they’ve recently come out with an intriguing audio interface that we just couldn’t ignore. It’s considered “next-gen” as there’s nothing quite like it out there at the moment. Some MOTU models perhaps can compare, but this particular interface is made for consolidation and basically jam-packing every and anything you can think of that can come with an audio interface. With 14 in\out channels, 4 analog in\out and 3-port USB hub, this thing may have too many features for you, which is never something to complain about when it comes down to it. Let’s look at it in detail.
The excitement we get when a new audio interface is introduced can be a bit too much, we admit. However, Tascam audio products have been some of our favorites, so when they released this model we had to review it. The Tascam US-2×2 Audio Interface is a part of a two-model series they’ve given us to keep their name in the AI game and they’ve done it well. With some extremely clear audio quality and little-to-no latency when you record, it’s one of the better quality builds we’ve seen.
We all know the power that Avid Pro Tools brings us, and if you’re pairing it up with some gear you’re going to want the best of the best. What’s even more pleasurable here is knowing that another popular brand, Apogee Electronics, known for bringing extremely high quality audio interfaces in particular has paired up with Avid to bring us some new gear. It’s a part of their “Avid Everywhere” program they’ve recently introduced and in our opinion is very smart marketing. They allow even more specific gear to be accustomed to software, which is only a plus for us gear heads. This particular audio interface is super powerful and most noticeably has some of the best audio quality we’ve heard. You get multiple ins and outs in their breakout cable along with USB connectivity to work with both Mac and PC, as well as some LED visualization to give us a very complete package. Did we mention that it comes with Pro Tools 11 as well? Let’s take a further look into the Avid Pro Tools Duet audio interface.
Logic Pro is one of the most popular digital audio workstations out there at the moment and for good reason. The overall function and capabilities it offers us is exceptional, especially at the affordable cost. If you’re already set on Logic being your DAW of choice, continue on and let’s get to picking our gear to work with our studio. We also outlined the best MIDI controller for Logic, so if you need help there as well check it out. Let’s check out the best audio interface in this article.
