Focusrite Saffire PRO 14

August 11, 2010

This 8-input, 6-output FireWire audio interface is designed for home-studio musicians wanting a simple but high-quality I/O device for a Mac or PC. Featuring two Saffire mic preamps, flexible I/O routing and 24-bit/96kHz AD/DA conversion with JetPLL jitter-elimination technology, it's capable of providing studio-quality recordings . 



Saffire PRO 14 includes Saffire MixControl, which lets you set up cue mixes for performers, quickly recall settings and route inputs to outputs for ultralow-latency monitoring. 



With its range of analog I/O, stereo S/PDIF and MIDI inputs and outputs, the Saffire PRO 14 lets you simultaneously record various sources without having to constantly re-patch your studio. Aside from their mic preamplification duties, inputs 1 and 2 accept signals from instruments such as guitars and electric pianos, while line-level inputs can take connections from synths and other external analog equipment. Digital outboard gear, such as the Focusrite ISA One Digital, can be connected via the S/PDIF ports, and internal Loopback inputs are also available for routing stereo audio between software applications.



The Saffire PRO 14 can be bus-powered by its FireWire connection or powered by an included AC-DC adaptor. It ships with the Focusrite plug-in suite of VST and AU plug-ins, as well as a license for Ableton Live Lite 8 and a host of royalty-free samples. 



The Saffire PRO 14 is expected to ship in August 2010, priced at $299.99 MSRP.
