Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP Firewire / Thunderbolt Audio Interface - The Saffire Pro 24 DSP from Focusrite offers a mass of production features, inputs, outputs and software support. This amongst other things make the Saffire Pro 24 DSP a real winner here at Inta Audio, and we're confident you will love it too.

Overview

The Saffire PRO 24 DSP includes a brand new technology which is set to revolutionize mixing.
We are happy to announce the launch of a DSP version of the Saffire PRO 24 which was unveiled at the London International Music Show in June. The Saffire PRO 24 DSP is built to the same specifications as the PRO 24, with two Focusrite mic pres heading up the 16 inputs and 8 outputs. PRO 24 DSP has an additional second headphone output to help you take advantage of Saffire PRO 24 DSP's unique monitoring feature.

The onboard DSP powers latency-free tracking tools such as Focusrite EQ and compression as well as comfort reverb. It also powers a groundbreaking new feature called VRM - or "Virtual Reference Monitoring". This is the first technology that allows you to mix effectively on headphones. It uses convolutions to simulate different monitors, rooms and listening positions through your headphones. Not everyone has access to expensive studio monitors and acoustically treated control rooms. VRM enables you to audition 10 different pairs of industry standard nearfield and main monitors from six listening positions in a treated room. In addition to this you can A/B your mixes with simulations of consumer stereo speakers, computer or television speakers from different positions in normal, untreated rooms.

The difference between the Saffire Pro 24 and Pro 24 DSP

The main hardware difference, the PRO 24 DSP has an extra headphone output, bringing the total to two.

PRO 24 DSP comes with on-board digital signal processing that allows zero-latency compression, EQ and reverb for tracking. This onboard DSP also powers the Virtual Reference Monitoring feature which simulates different types of monitors, rooms and listening positions entirely through your headphones.

•VRM Virtual Reference Monitoring
Hear your mix in different environments, through different speakers and from different positions, just using headphones

•Two High Quality Award-winning Focusrite Pre-amps
The best sounding interface in its class. Focusrite's unparalleled pre-amp legacy forms the foundation of this new interface, with two award-winning Focusrite pre-amps.

•Onboard DSP-powered, latency-free tracking and mixing tools
Classic Focusrite EQ and Compression for tracking, as well as ‘comfort’ reverb to place across your monitor mixes.

•High Quality 24-bit/96kHz FireWire Interface
Features high quality A-D / D-A conversion and JetPLL™ jitter elimination technology; pristine audio quality and reliable synchronisation are guaranteed.

•Total I/O Count of 16 Inputs and 8 Outputs
A host of I/O options are provided*, including a unique loop-back facility for routing audio between software applications via Saffire Mix Control.

•Saffire Mix Control Zero-latency DSP Mixer/Router
Routing flexibility and intuitive one-click set-up solutions; Saffire Mix Control provides an 16 x 8 DSP mixer with excellent output routing and monitoring capabilities.

•Xcite+ Software Bundle
Featuring a host of royalty-free loops and samples, a full-fledged Novation soft-synth and Ableton Live 7 Lite, providing an affordable upgrade path to Ableton Live.

•Focusrite VST/AU Plug-in Suite, for use in the mix
Upgrade your standard sequencer effects and bring a touch of class to your session with all-new Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins.

•Front panel 5-LED metering
LED metering for each of the analogue inputs offers accurate viewing of levels direct from the front fascia.

•Two dedicated front-panel headphone busses
Providing two fully customised monitor mixes, with tactile level control available on the front panel.

•Bus-powered for a tidy mobile recording rig
Saffire PRO 24 DSP can be powered via FireWire, or via its own power supply
