    14. 14. In combination with an ADAT converter, like the RME ADI-8 QS, the Babyface provides an incredible amount of 10 analog input and 12 output channels. „I always thought the TOSLINK connector could equally be used for ADAT. Hooray, there it is. So with an external ADAT capable preamp (up to and including OctaMic II or even Micstacy) and the two built-in mic pres, a very portable 10-channel recording rig!“ Internet posting ADAT
    15. 15. Digital I/O: SPDIF The optical TOSLINK I/O is alternatively usable as SPDIF port with up to 192 kHz. Output: 2 Channels Input: 2 Channels
    16. 16. A digital SPDIF converter - like RME ADI-2- adds two high-quality analog I/Os to the Babyface, for a total of 4 input and 6 output channels. SPDIF optical
    17. 17. MIDI I/O The integrated MIDI I/O completes the list of I/Os and turns the Babyface into a creative audio system of universal usability. Do what you want - wherever you want!
