The Focusrite Saffire PRO 40 multi-channel FireWire audio interface is designed with today's project studio in mind, featuring eight award-winning Focusrite preamps combined with the very latest in FireWire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and future-proof, rock-solid driver stability.
The pre-amps offer low noise and distortion, while quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology ensure pristine audio quality. The Saffire PRO 40 also provides 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.
The Focusrite Saffire PRO 40 comes with the Focusrite plug-in suite. All-new 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.
