The Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 is part of Focusrite's new generation of Firewire audio interfaces. As with all Focusrite interfaces, Saffire PRO 24 is the best-sounding interface in its class, attentively designed with recording musicians and the modern home studio in mind. The two Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, while 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 preamps 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 MkII), stereo S/PDIF I/O, and two virtual "loopback" inputs for routing digital audio between software applications-ideal for capturing online audio. Front panel five-step LED metering for each analog input offers detailed viewing of levels.
A host of I/O options are provided, including a unique Loopback facility for routing audio between software applications via Saffire MixControl. Features high quality A-D / D-A conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology; pristine audio quality and reliable synchronization are guaranteed. Upgrade your standard sequencer effects and bring a touch of class to your session with all-new Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins.
Saffire MixControl, the ultra-low-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 one-click set-up solutions designed to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible--all with lower than 1.4ms latency (less than the time it takes sound to travel two feet through air).
Featuring a host of royalty-free loops and samples, a full-fledged soft-synth, and an authorization code for Ableton Live Lite, providing an affordable upgrade path to Ableton Live.
The Saffire PRO 24's front panel features LED metering for each of the analog inputs offers detailed viewing of levels, as well as a dedicated headphone bus to provide a fully customized monitor mix, with tactile level control available on the front panel.
