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.

works with Linux
punter, 22.04.2020
I use it both with Windows 10 (pc mode) and Red Hat Linux 7 (standards compliance mode).

It works well with both.

I spent a whole weekend until I managed to get it working as a regular soundcard for a pc, however this was my first experience with such a versatile interface.

A dynamic mic connected to this RME, although usable as it is, sounds a bit on a quiet side but it is very likely that I misconfigured the RME. Or a mic preamp may be necessary.

This is clearly a quality product. I recommend it.

Newby buys a pro-device
hellblaze, 15.02.2020
Introduction
Well, as the heading says, I am far from being a pro, or even a serious-amateur musician. I actually need an audio interface to monitor and record myself singing and record some acoustic guitar. But I have great plans and some money to spare, so I decided to buy a pro-level audio interface.

Actual review
-it was rather hard for me to understand, how the software mixing desk works, but a few videoguides helped me.
-sound quality is way better, then steinberg ur12, I had before
-integrated FX options is a great bonus

Sumamry
As a newby, I barely can see any drawbacks of the device. However, I could barely advice amateur musicians like me buying this interface, for its functionality is excessive. However, if you have spare money and big plans for your future as a musician - keep this interface in mind.

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
