RME USB Driver for UCX and UFX on 2/25/2019.

RME Firmware 2/20/2019.

RME Digicheck updated 9/17/2018.


News, changes and fixes

Warning: this version is no longer compatible to Windows XP!


V 1.166 (02/25/2019)

New in TotalMix FX 1.6:

- Settings for External Input and current PFL mode are no longer changed per Snapshot.

- Solo/PFL have now priority over the Mute state of an input channel.

- Settings, Mixer: New option 'Exclusive Solo/PFL Mode'

- Settings, Mixer: New option '2-Row Mode with only Input in first row'

- Settings, Aux Devices: Increased number of Aux device channel banks to 24, so that MADIface XT and HDSPe MADI FX can control an Octamic XTC even on MADI port 3.

- Preferences, Mixer Views: New option 'Store channel open/close state in Layout Preset'.

- Preferences, Snapshots: new 'do not load' options 'Main Volume, Main/Phones Volume, Control Room Settings'.

- Preferences, New Option 'Store Settings for all users'. So far every user had his own TM FX state/settings. This option now allows to have the same settings for all users.

-  Added full support for multi-user operation. On a user change TM FX will automatically close and reopen. According to the above option it then loads either specific settings for the current user, or the same settings for all users.

- Menu File: New option 'Preload all snapshots'. Loads the 8 snapshots of a workspace into the Snapshot section, but does not activate any of them. Other settings within the workspace file (window position etc.) are ignored.

- Matrix: Shift + click to change phase, Ctrl + click to mute (or double click) on the vertical channel name columns.   

- ARC USB: added new mode 'Push-or'. Allows for example to activate Talkback with a button and the footswitch without blocking each other.

- ARC USB, Usage: supports SysEx mode (requires firmware update of the ARC USB). Additional option to disable the former mode. Firmware download:

Expander Threshold top value raised from -30 dB to -20 dB. Optimized Dynamics function removes low volume noise on specific samples and improves the lowest attack range (0 to 6 ms) for Compressor/Limiter/Expander. New global zipper noise filter design working on all faders. New internal third row design with several improvements (example: the Cue channel’s fader no longer influences volume). Optimized performance for higher count of EQs and Dynamics. FireWire only: MIDI input problem with Sysex fixed.

V 42/220/23/7: CC7 supports the ipad app TotalMix FX for iPad

V 42/220/23/4: Class Compliant: full 18 channels, choice of 2 playback routings (C8/CA)

V 357/158/343/CC26: Possible sample offset when changing between single/double/quad speed and resulting performance problems fixed. Internal loopback did not work in some situations in quad speed with channel 16.

V 356/158/343/CC26: supports the iPad app TotalMix FX for iPad version 1.1. Echo Delay Time can be set to 0.00 s to use the FX bus as real Aux bus. Expander Threshold top value raised from -30 dB to -20 dB. Optimized Dynamics function removes low volume noise on specific samples and improves the lowest attack range (0 to 6 ms) for Compressor/Limiter/Expander. New global zipper noise filter design working on all faders. New internal third row design with several improvements (example: the Cue channel’s fader no longer influences volume).

DURec: Starting Record with no channel enabled caused a flashing indication for all channels armed later. Stand-alone MIDI: under certain conditions not all fader values were loaded correctly. 9th fader of Mackie Control could block Main volume setting. Improved loading of setups for quicker reaction when using the Advanced Remote Control.

V 351/144/340: Bugfix: AutoSet influenced the communication with the front USB port. Gain Reduction data of Compressor and Auto Level transmission added (displayed in TM FX 0.96). Activated DIM could cause mismatch dialog.

I have an original Babyface, also, and RME's support has been great. I can't see me using any other company's hardware, at this point - drivers are great, and everything just works. Should my Babyface start having any issues, I'll updated to a second generation.

I'm with you.  The original Babyface is fairly "old" now, but RME keeps it working.  These seem like really great people.
