Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 Firewire
Focusrite introduced the Saffire Pro 24 Firewire audio interfaces.
This new interface features two Focusrite pre-amps designed to ensure low noise and distortion, with quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology.
Alongside the two Focusrite pre-amps are several I/O options; two additional analogue inputs, six analogue outputs, ADAT inputs (for expanding the interface with, for example, Focusrite's OctoPre), stereo SPDIF I/O and 2 virtual 'loopback' inputs for routing digital audio between software applications — ideal for capturing online audio. Front panel 5-LED metering for each analogue input offers accurate viewing of levels.
Saffire Mix Control, the zero-latency 18 x 8 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire PRO 24, is designed to set a new standard at this price point for audio interface control. It features flexible output routing and monitoring, as well as oneclick set-up solutions designed to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible, the company promises.
Saffire PRO 24 includes the latest version of the Focusrite Plug-in Suite, providing a significant upgrade from your standard sequencer effects. The suite includes Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ.
Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included. The bundle features Ableton Live Lite, Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gig of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters and 'Mike the Drummer'.
The new Saffire PRO 24 will be available worldwide in June 2009 from a selection of pro audio retailers worldwide.
