RME – updates mixers – for all interfaces incl. FW400/800 – fireface and usb

RME has released their Total Mix für any old and new interfaces – so FW400/800, UFC and others just look like this now: to me this step and option will sooner or later will end up in an APP to control everything by OSC or MIDI or — maybe blutooth somewhat later when connected (since the interfaces do not have BT of course) but surely by OSC and the network already. it has been controllable via MIDI ever since the old green’ish design – but there will be more coming up…

Avid Hd Native – Thunderbolt Audio Interface

Avid | Pro Tools|HD Native – is a digital audio interface with thunderbolt which is the second after apollo .
