The Fireface 802 FS is a highly integrated pro audio solution for live and studio use, designed for users who require high-end audio recording, rock-solid stability and ultra-low latency operation, as well as an unrivalled professional feature set.

Alongside 60 channels (30 inputs / 30 outputs) of analogue and digital I/O, the Fireface 802 FS benefits from newly developed analogue and digital circuitry with improved performance, as well as a host of professional features.

Like all RME audio interfaces, the Fireface 802 FS benefits from TotalMix FX, RME's digital high-end mixer and signal router. Driven by powerful DSP with integrated EQ, Dynamics and Reverb/Echo effects at up to 192 kHz, plus a built-in monitoring controller, TotalMix FX offers powerful, flexible control of all audio channels.

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 FS from the iPad, without any computer. The easy-to-use app includes metering for all 60 channels plus effects bus, different setup screens, and complete control of all features.
