Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 Audio Interface
The Focusrite Saffire Pro 40, a multichannel FireWire audio interface designed with today's project studio in mind, delivers the sound quality of much more expensive interfaces.
Focusrite's unparalleled preamp legacy forms the foundation of the Saffire Pro 40 interface, with eight award-winning Focusrite preamps. These are combined with the latest in FireWire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and future-proof, rock-solid driver stability.
With the Saffire PRO 40 interface, sonic integrity reigns supreme. The eight Focusite 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 analogue and digital domains.
Alongside the eight Focusrite preamps are a host of I/O options; 10 analog outputs, ADAT I/O, stereo SPDIF I/O, and 2 virtual "loopback" inputs for routing digital audio between software applications. Every channel features phantom power, with the first two channels also featuring -9dB pads for additional headroom. Front panel 5-LED metering for each analog input offers accurate viewing of levels.
Saffire PRO 40 comes with the Focusrite plug-in suite. Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins provide a significant upgrade from standard sequencer effects, bringing a touch of class to your session. Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included. The bundle includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gigabyte of royalty-free samples.
Saffire PRO 40 Control, the zero-latency 18 x 16 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire PRO 40, sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface control. It features unparalleled output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive one-click solutions, a clear and concise mixing layout and large on-screen metering for inputs, outputs and submixes.
Two independent headphone buses are provided, each with their own level controls available on the front panel. A dedicated stereo monitor mix output features pads for improved sound quality when connected to active monitor speakers. 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 customizable software to cover every possible monitoring need, providing a set of controls for any setup from basic stereo to full 7.1 surround.
