I will adjust my opinion above because I reois lot of mail ... I did not clearly expressed:
So I use the Saffire in sync with an RME Fireface 800. I record mostly batteries with Saffire. I work on PC and Cubase.


So to install, no Souis. The problem is meeting the problem of sync. I reli Saffire by the RME RME ADAT and the computer. Saffire walk then in "standalone" is not through the computer. In this case, the 8 inputs are directly routed to the ADAT and analog outputs 1 to 8. So far, a will. on the other hand, you can not change the frquence Sampling of standalone, it is the computer and software. And even the trs is difficult, the Focusrite is trsrfractaire to change. It will hold and not move. It's a bit boring for me that often goes to 44,100 in the same session 48000Hz, finally, not really practice what ct l. I tried to make it work as a slave, by the clock driver of the EMR but no way, it works poorly trs. Oh yes! the manual is not a. .. trs trs, trs but brief. When will a DVD with explanations movies?


Otherwise, once all this is done, the machine is flawless. Since I work in direct monitoring, I did not not particulire latency. In standalone mode, the drivers are not gure me useful, I can not say the above. I record the drum tracks by the 8 adat without any problem.


I use it for a year now prs, and my first opinion has not changed. Good sound (beautiful color), good converters, good pramp few small buttons on the front very useful, but sync shit.
For the price is good. It would perhaps be a switch on the facade to choose frquence of Sampling and would be really nice.
