The Saffire PRO 14 is an eight-in, six-out audio interface with legendary sonic performance and unmatched flexibility at a truly affordable price. The latest in Focusrite’s new generation of Firewire audio interfaces, the Saffire PRO 14 is designed to make home studio recording and mixing easy without sacrificing audio quality.

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.

KEY FEATURES:

  • 14 Channels of I/O - ( 8 In, 6 Out) / A/D dynamice Range >109dB
  • 2 Award winning Focusrite mic-pres with combi jacks, 2 line inputs, SPDIF/Stereo in/out, MIDI in/out (no breakout cable required)
  • 2 Unique Loop-back virtual channels for routing between software applications
  • Phantom power,Pad, and Gain on front inputs
  • Signal present and Overload indicators on front panel
  • 6 Outs, 4 on 1/4 phone jacks, 2 on SPDIF
  • Bundle: "Xcite + Pack" software Bundle, featuring Ableton Live 8 Lite, Novation's Bass Station, and "Mike the Drummer" Drum loops with 1 Gb of samples
  • Focusrite's renown plug-in suite with Compressor/Reverb/EQ/and Gate -- VST/AU compatible
  • Kensington lockable
  • Half-Rack ” 2U rack-mount / Metal Case construction
  • Dedicated headphone output
  • Ultra-low latency Firewire interface
  • 24-bit, 96kHz integrated A-D/D-A w JetPLL jitter elimination technology
  • Saffire Pro MIX Control Zero Latency DSP Mixer Router
  • Bus powered via Firewire or external power supply

 

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.

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.
