Does the world need another  audio interface? Yes - when it's pink! The eagerly awaited special  edition of the successful RME Babyface, named Ladyface edition, starts  shipping. Custom-tailored for the Japanese and other  asian markets, it is now also available worldwide from all RME  distributors.

The Ladyface is fully identical  to the RME Babyface, all features and drivers are the same. It shines  with a solid aluminum case in a stylish color combination of glossy  white and pink. The manga-style Ladyface package  includes a white carry bag plus white USB and breakout cables. The  special edition also adds a white HiFi breakout cable with four  unbalanced golden RCA connectors to the included balanced breakout cable  having XLR connectors.

The ultra-mobile, bus-powered  USB audio interface provides 22-channels and the latest 192 kHz AD- and  DA-converters, including two reference class microphone preamps.

The Ladyface delivers two high  end analog recording channels and four analog playback channels, plus  ADAT and MIDI I/O. It combines excellent analog circuit design with  AD/DA converter chips of the latest generation.  RME’s efficient SteadyClock jitter suppression technology ensures an  AD- and DA-conversion of the highest reference quality.

Both digitally controlled  preamps provide individually switchable 48V phantom power. The extremely  low THD+N values let these preamps surpass those of other devices that  cost several times the price of the Ladyface. All  level settings are 100% recallable by software and can be comfortably  adjusted directly at the unit.

The feature set includes a  digital I/O with up to 192 kHz support, alternatively usable as ADAT  port or optical SPDIF I/O. In combination with an ADAT converter the  Ladyface provides an incredible amount of 10 analog  input and 12 analog output channels.

The headphone output, driven  from an extra DA converter, provides full 192 kHz sound experience, and  is available not only directly at the unit but also on the breakout  cable.

The additional instrument input -  directly at the side of the unit - allows the recording of any  instrument, like a guitar or bass guitar, without any other external  hardware, by switching one analog input to Hi-Z mode.

With one main control knob and  two single buttons the elegant Ladyface acts as direct desktop control  for all typical studio tasks: volume control, reference volume store and  recall, volume dim, input selection/switching  and input gain control.

The Ladyface connects to the USB  2.0 bus, but is also compatible to USB 3 chipsets. It has been  uncompromisingly optimized for highest performance under Windows and Mac  OS by using customized firmwares for every operating  system. Like other RME USB interfaces, the Ladyface provides  revolutionary ultra-low latencies even with multiple channels.

The Ladyface integrates TotalMix  FX. The latest generation of RME’s famous DSP hardware mixer delivers  mixing/routing with lots of new features and a highly improved  usability. The DSP mixer not only works with an internal  resolution of 46 bit and matches the feature set of expensive high-end  digital consoles, but even adds effects like a 3-band parametric  equalizer, reverb and echo to the mix.

Full mobility: The  ultra-portable Ladyface provides unlimited operation already on USB bus  power. This turns the Ladyface into the perfect partner for mobile  recording of live performances, composing sessions in a park  or coffee shop, or just wherever you go. An external power supply is  optionally available. Even if just seen as a good looking Hi-Fi music  player or home studio companion - it will work perfectly on every  desktop and laptop computer.
