Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 FireWire Interface with Microphone Preamps

The Saffire PRO 14 from Focusrite is an 8 input/6 output FireWire digital audio interface with legendary sonic performance and excellent flexibility. The interface is designed to make home studio recording and mixing easy without sacrificing audio quality. The unit features 2 award-winning Focusrite preamps, combined with a host of additional I/O options, that together allow the interface to get the tracks you want without having to constantly re-patch your studio.

Alongside the microphone preamps, 2 additional analog inputs, 4 analog outputs and S/PDIF and MIDI I/O, open the door to true multi-track recording. Two Hi-Z instrument inputs let you plug guitars and other instruments straight into the interface without the need of additional DI boxes. Two virtual loopback inputs are available for routing digital audio between software applications, ideal for capturing online audio.

The included Saffire MixControl is an 18 x 6 DSP software mixer that enables you to create 6 separate mixes without latency and route any combination of input signals and sequencer outputs to any of the outputs. Intuitive one-click configurations help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible. Also included is the latest version of the Focusrite Plug-in Suite, with compression, reverb, gating and EQ VST/Audio Unit plug-ins.

Focusrite's Xcite+ bundle features Ableton Live Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synthesizer and over 1 GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters.
