Rme have even more in store for us, with the new Octamic XTC preamp.
The bottom line is that is has eight remote controlled preamps to complement the existing four in the UFX, or two in the UCX.
Plugging this device in at the same time on USB as either the UFX or UCX should enable totalmix to identify these as extra channels, appearing as extra inputs in your DAW automatically alongside your interface.
It also gives you an additional pair of headphone outputs for monitor mixes.
The unit can be remote controlled from totalmix, or via Midi and also features MADI, AES and ADAT connectivity, at sample rates up to 192k / 24 Bit.
