The Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 is an 8 in / 6 out audio interface offering superb sonic performance and unmatched flexibility at an incredible price. With two award-winning Focusrite preamps, combined with a host of additional I/O options, the Saffire PRO 14 will help 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. The 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.
Saffire PRO 14 comes with all of the additional tools needed to start making music straight away. These include the latest version of the Focusrite Plug-in Suite, providing a significant upgrade from your standard sequencer effects. The suite includes Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins.

With Saffire PRO 14, sonic integrity is never compromised. The two Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, while quality digital conversion and JetPL jitter elimination technology ensure pristine quality as your audio flows between the analog and digital domains.
