Topic: RME babyface first minute impressions
After long hunt i was able to get one in UK. Been testing it tonight against my previous interface (edirol UA-4FX). Of course babyface costs 3 times more, but edirol had quite good reviews on it's side and has reverb etc. for monitoring.
Just started by comparing music playback between the two with headphones. Difference is......NICE Suddenly i can hear sooo much more detail and nuances. And there is lot more space.
Second I tested instrument input with acoustic guitar. I didn't even now that my guitar has so high frequencies when using it's own pick up. Babyface indeed brought much more clarity to that as well.
Babyface is obviously different class of kit than the edirol. It weights and is big enough so one get the feeling of professional gear. Nice.
Over the next week end i will make harder test, i'll compare my preamp (DAV BG1) (which costs same as babyface) with babyfaces preamp. Hopefully babyface doesn't loose much, so i can use which ever i like depending on requirements.
now back to find new details of my music library.
