Incredible audio interface!
Jorge Pallares 12.06.2020
This is an amazing USB Audio Interface. I've always trusted the RME brand. These guys can make the best possible hardware and affordable prices considering the features and benefits they offer. The RME Babyface Pro FS is no exception.

It's got pristine sound quality. Great quality of conversion in both the DAC and ADC sides. Stable clock technology from the new SteadyClock FS. Great transparent preamps. Great outputs for the headphones. Incredibly low levels of low noise and distortion.

Best performance and low latency. No hiccups of any kind. Can use extremely low audio buffer sizes as low as 48 or 64 samples, without any issues in Ableton Live 10 Suite and Logic Pro X.

Rock solid USB drivers. It's always reliable and trusty.

Awesome quality of construction. Built from a solid block of aluminum and the highest standards. Buttons, meters, dial control, cables, connections are all very nice, stable. Feels durable enough for many years to come.

Comes in solid black carrying case.

Great included software with TotalMix FX and others.

Only pros with this audio interface. There are no cons. Prices is fair for all that it offers.


RME Top in their game
Michael1970 16.06.2020
I use RME for 20 years now. No reason to look elsewhere. Their product is still top, audio quality is excellent, hardware based on previous experience should be long lasting(at least 10 years). Most importantly is there is long term support for their products. They don't just abandon an audio card after 2 years like others. Also they let their software and hardware people experiment to optimize staff. They results is that their drivers are ultra stable compared to other manufacturers who don't give their devs enough time to fix staff before moving to the next great thing. In short this Babyface Pro FS is what you expect if your used RME in the past, stability , good drivers, long term support, not cheap components on the pcb. I am not affiliated with RME in any way just a happy customer


Great DA AD conversion & sound quality!
Christos Pappas 02.07.2022
Great D/A A/D conversion which by the way most people get overlooked on but in a hybrid studio combined with analog gear that is one of the most important elements. Total mix effects is great you can route everything literally and with very low close to (non existent) 0 latency. Would like the option of compression also available on total mix fx as with ufx models. Outputs are a bit of an issue but you can adat it with another - make sure DA conversion is equivalent to RME as with a focusrite is day to night- had to do lots of tests routing my neve gear and api and AB them and seems that RME wins on that matter. It’s built is solid & great to take it with tou wherever you wish to record! Oh and have to state that as long as RME has great audio interfaces their customer support is the less sufficient to put it politely. Great delivery & support from Thomann as always.


Perfect for my needs
kamsan 01.12.2021
Significant boost in clarity and punchiness in sound quality, and it does not create a deafening 'pop' sound on my speakers when the device is powered on as opposed to my previous Audio Interface.

The driver is extremely on Windows, macOS and even iPadOS, and it has replaced my need to bring my laptop to record on the go, since the TotalMix software works great with GarageBand on my iPad with no glitches.

The build is like a tank and I foresee this device will last a very long time. A good investment for music producers.
