Details

The Saffire PRO40, from World Class leading brand Focusrite, is the very latest in multichannel Firewire/Thunderbolt audio interfaces.  The Saffire Pro 40 is the best sounding interface in its class, designed with today's project studio in mind.

Focusrites award winning preamp legacy forms the foundation of this new interface with eight award winning Focusrite preamps.  These, combined with the very latest in Firewire interfacing technology, delivers seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and future proof, rock solid driver stability.  

The eight Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion longside quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter reduction technology. All these ensure prestine audio quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains.  

The Saffire Pro 40 comes equipped with eight Focusrite preamps and a host of additional I/O options; 10 analog outputs, ADAT I/O, stereo S/PDIF and two 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 five-step LED metering for each analog input offers accurate viewing of levels.

Saffire Mix Control
Saffire Mix Control, the ultra low latency, 18 x 16 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire Pro 40, sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface control.  It features unparallelled output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive one clip options, a clear and concise mixing layout and large on-screen metering for inputs, outputs, and sub-mixes

Independent Stereo Headphone Buses
Two independent stereo headphone buses are provided, each with their own level controls available on the front panel.  A dedicated stereo monitor mix output features pads for improved sound quality when connected to active monitor speakers.  An 'anti-thump' circuit protects your monitor speakers from spikes when booting up or shutting down.  Front panel controls include a main monitor dial with dim and mute switches, all of which fully integrate with customizable software to cover every possible monitoring need, providing a set of controls for any set up from basic to stereo full 7.1 surround.
