Two of Focusrite’s history-rich, award-winning preamplifiers
Without a doubt, Focusrite has a reputation for creating some of the industry’s best-ever preamplifiers. And with the Focusrite Saffire PRO 24, you get to tap into that legacy, at an unbelievably affordable per-preamp value. The Saffire PRO 24 has not one, but two Focusrite preamps, giving you that signature Focusrite transparency and clarity, and a solid cornerstone for your sound.
Get creative with the DSP mixer — while your CPU power stays intact
The Saffire PRO 24 lets you get as creative as you want with your headphone mixes – and your audio routing in general – and you can do it all without so much as touching your computer’s processing power. That’s because there’s a built-in DSP mixer on the Saffire PRO 24. Go ahead and flexibly route the 16 inputs and eight outputs however you see fit. Also cool, there’s a handy loop-back function that lets you route audio between software applications. For example, you can record a sample from your iTunes library right into your session… or mash up random audio samples from YouTube… the possibilities are endless with the Saffire PRO 24.
Included VST/AU plug-ins give your projects a touch of class
The Saffire PRO 24 includes a suite of awesome-sounding plug-ins to use in your sessions. All in all, you get compression, reverb, gating, and EQ plug-ins, giving you the right tools for dialing in a great mix — all right inside the box. The plug-ins work inside VST- and AU-compatible DAWs, so you’ve got a ton of audio recording/editing programs to choose from.
Comes with a bunch of loops, samples, and software to get you started
With the Saffire PRO 24, you’re loaded up with sounds from the get-go. The interface comes with the “Xcite+” pack, a DVD-ROM filled to the brim with royalty-free loops and samples, plus powerful software applications to get you up and running. With the Saffire PRO 24, you get a copy of Ableton Live Lite 7 (which gets you a special low-priced upgrade to the full version, if you love it), plus Novation’s classic bass synth “Bass Station,” a collection of 572 live drum loops, and 1GB of royalty-free samples from LoopMasters. Long story short, with the Saffire PRO 24, you’ve got enough audio options in the box to satisfy the appetite of even the most demanding artist. The Xcite+ Pack, so you know, is compatible with Macs and PCs.
All Focusrite FireWire interfaces are fully compatible with Thunderbolt using a simple FireWire to Thunderbolt adapter. Focusrite fully supports the use of Thunderbolt with its FireWire interfaces.
