RME Fireface 802 USB and Firewire

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.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Lives up to its name"
Overall: The direct monitoring system on this product is worth the price tag alone. You can listen to all inputs and outputs individually, create custom mixes, and much more. Total Mix can look a little intimidating at first, but it is actually incredibly intuitive after you use it for a little while. This product comes with a clear 200-page book, not just a manual. Just about every advanced feature capability and routing option is available with this soundcard. It is definitely a soundcard that can grow with you. The preamps sound amazing and have a "ready to print" sound. The preamps can also be bypassed easily on all inputs if you have your own. If you want to use all 8 back analog outputs for recording. You can use a Y cable on the front headphone/line monitor for external monitors. Then route 1/2 to 9/10 or 11/12 in Total Mix. Save as a preset and you're done. You can use 9/10 for headphones and 11/12 for external monitors. If you feel limited by your current soundcard and are serious about your sound this is the soundcard for you. If you run a professional studio this is the best sound card on the market, along with the UFX+.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds became my go-to music "store" when they approved me for "Play as you Pay" after another large retailer had turned me down for credit. Being extremely loyal, the only time that I shop anywhere else is when zZounds doesn't have what I'm looking for. And that isn't very often!" - Customer on October 7, 2017

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
