High Wycombe, Bucks – Focusrite has introduced the Saffire Pro 24, the newest option in Focusrite''s new generation of FireWire audio interfaces. Saffire PRO 24 is attentively designed with recording musicians and the modern home studio in mind.
Twenty-five years of mic-pre excellence form the foundation of this new interface, with two award-winning Focusrite pre-amps. These combine with the very latest in mix control software and FireWire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability. With Saffire PRO 24, sonic integrity reigns supreme. The two Focusrite pre-amps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLL™ jitter elimination technology ensure pristine audio quality as your audio flows between the analog and digital domains.
Alongside the two Focusrite pre-amps are a host of I/O options; two additional analog inputs, six analog 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 analog input offers accurate viewing of levels.
Saffire Mix Control, the zero-latency 18 x 8 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire PRO 24, sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface control. It features flexible output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive oneclick set-up solutions designed to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible.
Saffire PRO 24 also comes with all the additional tools needed to start making music straight away. These include 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 (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation''s Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gig of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters and ‘Mike the Drummer''.
