Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Can you adjust how much the headphone volume should rise or fall pr. nudge with the wheel?

The "jumps" between each volume step are too large currently, I find, making the sound either a little too loud or a little too quiet.

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

I'm also interested to know what are the increments in dB per step for controlling the main output and/or headphones via rotary encoder normally?

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Open TotalMix, look at the dBs of the fader while turning the wheel.

It's amazing how arrogant you are, MC. Is there a chance you could hire a professional person to moderate the forum, who is not the owner and without your "I don't give a fuck" attitude?

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

You really think I have a table lying around that I could copy into this forum having the steps of the wheel of all our products? Amazing...

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

1. Did I ask you about the instructions about how to check the steps on an (in my case) nonexistent unit and software?
2. Did I say I expect you to "have a table" lying around?
3. Did I say you must answer my question in case you don't know the answer (or even if you do)?

Why are you reacting so aggressive? You didn't tell that you do not have a BBFP.

If you would have one then it was a very valid and not inpolite answer, as it would have taken you only a few seconds to try it out.

@ramses

Hello Ramses.

Because I'm pissed off. Every time I ask some simple little question here, I hear RTFM answer, or check YouTube, or whatever, after I did my research to my abilities. Sorry, do you also really think I would bother asking about the increments on MY unit instead of just checking it by myself?

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Conversation over electronic media is always challenging.

And I can only repeat it was not clear, that you have no BBFP in front of you as you did not tell this !!

If you would have stated this out clearly, then you would surely have got another answer,
as then its clear that you can not try on your own.

I can only speak abount myself. I have a fulltime job and family.
If I see that a topic comes again and again, then I make some thoughts to make my support more efficient
as I need to housekeep with my priveate time.

Then I write sometimes a blog article and then only refer to it.

Its impossible for me to answer the same things again and again.

And now comes the part where you really should be thankful.
With all other companies I know, you can only deal with the support and the quality is "so so " ...
Here in the RME user forum you get high quality answers from the lead architect of these solutions.
And this in a very narrow response time.

If you put all this together, tbh, I think there is no real reason to complain.

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

pianopictures: It seems I misunderstood you in several ways. As I had read your name before and you do have 34 posts here already I expected you to have a RME unit. If not then sorry.

Second I (most probably) took your 'normally' the wrong way, like 'on all the units'. Assuming you don't have an RME unit the question makes more sense, because you can not kow that there is not one step, but different steps stretched over the whole gain range, to make the adjustment matching the ear's volume reception (also called logarithmic fader curve). Stupid AV receivers and DACs often use 0.5 dB steps all the way, making it a catastrophy changing from high to low volume. Not so with RME as additionally you also have accelleration, means turing the encoder/wheel more quickly will give bigger steps. Finally not all units have the same step sizes.

That gives a long table of values...

Sorry again.

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

I checked the Babyface Pro manual & it shows 44,100 rate, but is that also for ADAT? I've read that ADAT is only usable at 48,000hz?

Also for browsing youtube or listening to itunes, while also having the DAW open can cause problems? I've read other forum posts where windows programs like youtube, itunes, etc. can only operate at 44,100?

reason i ask is, if I had ADAT unit connected for extra channels operating at 48,000hz, would I never be able to use youtube or itunes while the ADAT unit or DAW is open & connected?

would I have to close out of the DAW & switch the system rate back to 44,100hz, in order to run youtube, itunes or any other windows program (audacity, sound forge 11, wmp)?

i've never used ADAT before so I have no real world experience of how it operates. hopefully I could run ADAT at 44,100, so everything I have open on the PC would run at the same rate, without having to close & re-open programs, etc.

thank you

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Adat can run at 44k too. I have 3 devices connected and never leave 44k in my studio.

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

ok good, that's what I was hoping to hear.

one more noob question. what's the best way to power on/off the Babyface, when using USB bus power? Do you keep it on all the time or unplug the cable every time? just wondering why some devices like the Babyface (Pro) and Digiface USB, etc. don't have power on/off switches.

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Im newbie to this home recording stuff so bare with me is there a way i could connect my baby face pro directly to my delta 1010lt soundcard i dont want to use usb connection since i heard theres latency issues with usb...if so what would i need to connect to my sound card...

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

1. Install the RME ASIO driver
2. Configure FL S to use the RME ASIO driver

And then here to boost your knowledge about TotalMix FX:

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

So, is the instrument input impedance 1MOhm or 470kOhm? In the manual and the webpage it says the latter.

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Where it says 1 MOhm ?

Re: The official Babyface Pro Thread

Earlier in this thread, this was about the differences between Babyface and Babyface Pro.

The AD converter has less noise and distortion and the impedance has been changed from 470 kOhm to 1M. But I highly doubt you would notice any difference in real world usage.
