Default RME UFX 2, 1 sample of round trip latency!!!!

Yeah, you read right. I just got a RME fireface UFX 2 and its advertised at 32 samples of RTL. I just did a RTL test going through my distressor, a DBX EQ and a PULTEC eqp-1a and I had to do the test 3 times because I thought I was doing something wrong. But no, I was right all three times. ONE sample of RTL. I know $2300 gets you the best converters money can buy. But ONE sample? I didnt think that was even possible. My MOTU 828es had 714 samples of RTL and that in itself isnt that bad. But ONE? Ill take it!!!

If you run a hybrid setup and use hardware save your pennies kids.

What are you saying? Can you dim it down a shade? What did you mean by save your pennies if you run a hybrid setup?

Meaning, if you run a hybrid setup and use outboard hardware effects with your DAW, and if you save up $2300, you have access to a interface (RME fireface UFX 2) with near zero (1 sample) latency. Which will make running hardware effects VERY easy with such good DA/AD converters.
Make sense?

Do me a favor (and yourself). Do a round trip latency test and let me know what yours is. I wonder if its just that my parts are jiving right in my unit or if its all UFX 2 that have these amazing results. Ill post a vid below on how to test it. Unless you know already then disregard.

The Ferofish has only 2 samples of latency. Dammit! Now youve made me have to spend another $1000 haha

Dude! The Ferrofish Pulse 16 is German made...just like the RME...stellar, stellar stuff. You'll love it.

Unfortunately, I can't run any tests. I'm overseas for work until September 2020!!

I literally can't wait to get back home and get things going again.

If you're interested, here's a track I recorded last year:
