Focusrite proudly launches the new Saffire PRO 24 DSP, a 16 Input / 8 Output FireWire audio interface that features VRM, a breakthrough monitoring technology, in addition to real-time DSP-powered tracking plug-ins, all tailor-made for the modern recording environment.
Alongside DSP-powered Compression and EQ for latency-free tracking, there's also a 'Comfort' Reverb and Focusrite's patented VRM – Virtual Reference Monitoring – technology that lets you hear your mix in different acoustic environments, through different speakers and from different positions – all just using standard monitoring headphones
All DSP-based signal processing and effects are derived from the 'Focusrite Plug-in Suite' (also included as VST/AU plug-ins) and are integrated within the Saffire Mix Control software, providing professional latency-free tools for tracking and monitoring. The suite includes Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins.
I/O options include two additional analogue inputs, six analogue outputs, ADAT inputs (for expanding the interface with, for example, Focusrite's OctoPre), stereo S/PDIF 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 analogue input offers accurate viewing of levels.
Saffire Mix Control, the zero-latency 16 x 8 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire PRO 24 DSP, 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 easily as possible.
Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included. The bundle features Ableton Live 7 Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters and 'Mike the Drummer'.
