The Sound Architect is a UK-based website dedicated to everything game and film audio, featuring the latest news updates, reviews of audio software and hardware, plus regular interviews with a variety of professionals working in the industry, from sound designers and composers, to voiceover artists and singer-songwriters.

For their latest review, the Sound Architect reviewer Matthew Killford took the RME Babyface Pro for a spin, finding plenty to love about RME’s compact 24-channel desktop audio interface. “The Babyface Pro just works and works tremendously. I can’t stress this enough,” writes Matt, and adding that “It’s screaming out to those who just want their audio interface to simply work.”


“The Babyface Pro just works and works tremendously.
I can’t stress this enough.”


Matt was also impressed by the Babyface Pro’s ability to power both mic pre’s at 48v via USB. “Finally, one of the most impressive achievements with the Babyface Pro is that BOTH XLR inputs can be powered at the same time by 48v phantom power, with only the USB connection. Most interfaces need the external power supply to achieve this. Hats off to RME for that. A big plus.”

It’s crystal clear” and low in noise”.
