One of the coolest things I saw at NAB 2010 was the new desktop USB 2.0 IO box from RME. Babyface features 192 kHz AD/DA converters with RME’s SteadyClock, 10 in/12 outs, 2 balanced mic preamps, Hi-Z input, ADAT or S/PDIF IO, headphone out, 32-channel MIDI IO plus an FPGA powered PC/Mac mixer with effects.
The TotalMix interface was highly evolved with lots of viewing options depending on your screen size. The meters were configurable and very responsive and because of the FPGA, the 3-band EQ, reverb and echo effects are near zero latency. All this for $750 is quite the bargain.
