Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 Firewire 8 in 6 out Interface

The Focusrite Saffire range of interfaces has always been popular with Andertons customers because it brings together great sound quality, versatility and affordable hardware. The Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 expands the range with a handy mobile interface that has a healthy I/O count of 8 in, 6 out.

The Saffire pro can be run on firewire bus power for a quick and easy mobile setup with exceptional Focusrite Mic pres and Saffire's renowned flexibility when it comes to monitoring whilst recording and mixing. Digital inputs on S/PDIF and MIDI to complete the package.

Here's what Focusrite say about the Saffire Pro 14

Twenty-five years of mic pre excellence form the foundation of this new interface, with two award-winning Focusrite preamps. Combined with a host of additional I/O options, the Saffire PRO 14 helps you get the tracks you want without having to constantly re-patch your studio.

Alongside the two high quality mic preamps, two additional analogue inputs, four analogue 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. Offering a level of flexibility that is unparalleled at this price point, 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.

Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included. The bundle features Ableton Live Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gig of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters.
 
With Saffire PRO 14, sonic integrity is never compromised. The two Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology ensure pristine quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains. Combined with the very latest in FireWire interfacing technology, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability, the Saffire PRO 14 is the heart of the modern home studio.

    plugged into my 2013 macbook pro with OS X 10.9 Mavericks, installed the Saffire MixControl and I was ready to play. Great in conjunction with garageband and the set of Amps available. for now I'm using it directly with my guitar.

    The Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 Firewire Interface is quite honestly an amazing bit of kit. I particularly wanted a firewire interface because the signal isn't sharing the bus with any other peripherals as with the USB devices and will give me less chance of drop-outs and faster transfer rates. The interface intergrates itself so well with any DAW software and is really easy to install.

    You also get Focusrites "Saffire Mix Control" which is a really handy piece of software that enables you to not only set up your sample rates and digital syncing but also allows you control over the routing of all your audio signals to the physical outputs as well as control over monitor routing to be able to listen with zero latency.

    The two Focusrite pre-amps sound top quality to me and the bundled "Plug-in Suite" with Compressor, Reverb, EQ and Gate are really usable tools with well thought out controls that enable you to do some serious sound sculpting or just click on a preset, either way sounded great to me. Oh, and anyone with any MIDI Gear you get a midi in/midi out connection thrown in.

    This is a bit of kit I'm really happy with and fully expect to be happy with for a long time to come :-)

    Very versatile with many in and outputs and high quality sound for this price point. The sounds is great but one of the best features is that you can route zero-latency monitoring into the headphones of the person you are recording (audio) - a great feature.
