Click here to be informed more about the keys to Focusrite interface superiority. Saffire interfaces offer one of the best way to get high-quality audio into and out of your DAW. They’re compatible with any DAW on Macintosh or Windows, and with the included Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins, make a perfect partner for Pro Tools. 20-in, 20 out Firewire interface with eight Focusrite mic pres Designed with the sophisticated project studio owner or smaller commercial facility in mind, Saffire PRO 40 features a versatile 20 inputs and 20 outputs, including a complement of eight Focusrite mic preamps guaranteed to get the best out of any microphone, with minimal noise and distortion even at high gain. Two mic/line/instrument inputs are accessed via the front panel, which also provides two independent headphone monitor outputs. 30-year heritage of acclaimed mic pre design Focusrite’s unparalleled preamp legacy forms the foundation of this versatile interface, with eight award-winning Focusrite preamps. Focusrite came into being thirty years ago in 1985 when console design legend Rupert Neve was once asked by Sir George Martin to develop new mic pres for the consoles at AIR studios. The resulting, sought-after sound has been the basis of Focusrite mic preamps ever since. Those used in our computer interface ranges are a special 2-stage design created specially for the purpose, combining low noise, high gain and exceptional headroom, allowing you to get the best out of any microphone. Precision conversion in and out Our acclaimed mic pres are combined with the very recent in interfacing technology, including precision digital conversion based on exceptional circuit design and multi-layer boards, offering the lowest conceivable latency. JetPLL™ jitter-reduction technology helps to attain the goal of pristine audio quality, coupled with excellent routing flexibility and future-proof, rock-solid stability. Meanwhile, powerful Saffire MixControl DSP-based zero-latency mixing software allows the maximum monitoring flexibility. A host of I/O options All eight main inputs feature combo XLR/TRS connectors and sense which is in use automatically. Inputs 1 and 2 appear on the front panel and make stronger mic, line and instrument operation, whilst the remaining six are on the rear panel and offer mic and line input functionality. Along with the comprehensive monitoring options described below, there are eight TRS line outputs. In addition, ADAT I/O, stereo S/PDIF I/O and two virtual ‘loopback’ inputs for routing digital audio between software applications are provided. Every mic pre features phantom power, with the first two channels also featuring -9dB pads for additional headroom. Front panel five-step LED metering for each analogue input offers accurate viewing of levels. MixControl: zero-latency DSP-powered mixing software Saffire MixControl, the ultra-low-latency 18 x 16 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire PRO 40, sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface keep an eye on. It features unparalleled output routing and monitoring, in addition to intuitive one-click options, a clear and concise mixing layout and large on-screen metering for inputs, outputs and submixes. Maximum monitoring Two independent headphone buses are provided, each with their own level controls to be had on the front panel. A dedicated stereo monitor mix TRS output features pads for improved sound quality when connected to active monitor speakers, whilst an ‘anti-thump’ circuit protects your monitor speakers from spikes when booting up or shutting down. Front panel controls include a main monitor dial with dim and mute switches, all of which fully integrate with customisable software to cover every conceivable monitoring need, providing a set of controls for any set-up from basic stereo to full 7.1 surround.
