The Saffire Pro 14 is an eight-in, six-out audio interface with legendary sonic performance and unmatched flexibility. The latest in Focusrite's new generation of FireWire audio interfaces, the Saffire Pro 14 is designed to make home studio recording and mixing easy without sacrificing audio quality. Twenty-five years of mic pre excellence form the foundation of this new interface, with two award-winning Focusrite preamps. Combined with a host of additional I/O options, the Saffire Pro 14 helps you get the tracks you want without having to constantly re-patch your studio. Alongside the two high quality mic preamps, two additional analog inputs, four analog outputs, S/PDIF and MIDI open the door to true multi-track recording. Two Hi-Z instrument inputs let you plug straight in without the need to buy additional DI boxes, and two virtual 'loopback' inputs are also available for routing digital audio between software applications--ideal for capturing online audio. Included with the Pro 14 is Saffire MixControl, an 18 x 6 DSP mixer. MixControl software enables you to create six separate mixes without latency.
Route any combination of input signals and sequencer outputs to any of Saffire Pro 14's outputs. Intuitive one-click configurations help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible. With Saffire Pro 14, sonic integrity is never compromised. The two Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, while quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology ensure pristine quality as your audio flows between the analog and digital domains. Combined with the very latest in FireWire interfacing technology, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability, the Saffire Pro 14 is the heart of the modern home studio.
MixControl provides an 18 x 6 DSP mixer with excellent routing flexibility, intuitive one-click configurations, and lower than 1.4ms latency (less than the time it takes sound to travel two feet through air). Upgrade your standard sequencer effects and bring a touch of class to your session with Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins. And there's no need for a separate DI--the first two channels feature high-gain instrument inputs.
The included Xcite+ software bundle features 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.
Saffire Pro 14 can be powered via FireWire (FireWire 400 or better port required), or via its own power supply.
