Cian Ciaran, keyboard player and guitarist for rock (and some would say psychedelic) band, The Super Furry Animals, is a long time user and advocate of RME products. The RME Multiface with Cardbus card which had been at the core of his PC system had been rock solid since the day he bought it. But, Cian recently upgraded his PC and found that he was unable to use his old PCMCIA card.
So, knowing that the launch of the Express card was imminent, Cian borrowed a RME Fireface 400 (no a discontinued product, see the RME Fireface UC instead), which of course worked flawlessly live, and it saw “The Furries” through a whole bunch of dates on their European tour. As soon as the RME Express Card became available (earlier this year), Cian bought one and installed it into his massive new PC set up along with his original RME Multiface II, and it all instantly came to life.
Cian remains a big fan of RME saying “in almost 7 years of working with RME in the studio and on the road, I haven’t had a problem yet. Rock solid and jitter free playback and a customer support department that’s second to none. ” ………… and we love you too Cian!
