OVERVIEW

Focusrite audio quality and FireWire speed for your computer audio setup.

The Focusrite Saffire PRO 10 I/O is a multichannel FireWire interface with the same highly integrated I/O and monitoring control software as the 26 I/O. The 10 I/O can handle larger recording jobs thanks its ability to link multiple units, all controlled via the same software control platform. Housed within a sleek 19" rackmount case with detachable rack ears styled similarly to the 26 I/O, the 10 I/O combines eight channels of Focusrite preamplification with eight balanced line outputs and stereo SPDIF I/O.

The preamps featured in the Saffire PRO 10 I/O are a derivative of the award-winning Green Series. This preamp design upholds the same high-bandwidth philosophy while boasting class-leading specifications. In addition, the converters adhere to performance specifications far beyond other similarly priced interfaces. As with all Saffire solutions, the unit can be either bus-powered or powered via an external power supply. The unit has also been designed to take full advantage of the external power supply and to maximize performance when powered in this way.

SaffireControl PRO software delivers a control application that avoids any annoying dropdown menus and provides comprehensive custom mix solutions. It also offers quick-select tracking and playback solutions, as well as both the float and shrink/expand facilities found in the original.

Saffire Pro 10 I/O also features MIDI I/O alongside a host of additional processing features. Two channels with DI are also provided, eliminating the need for a separate DI box.

The front panel boasts two independent headphones outputs with volume control, again customizable within SaffireControl PRO. In addition to the control software, Saffire Pro 10 I/O comes bundled with the same acclaimed compression, reverb, amp modeling and EQ VST/AU plug-ins for use in the mix.

Focusrite’s popular Saffire Firewire interfaces are fully compatible with Thunderbolt ports on Mac computers. All you need to connect the two is a FireWire 400-800 cable (included with all new Saffire interfaces later this year) and the Thunderbolt to FireWire 800 adapter (not included). Simply plug this into the Thunderbolt port on your computer and connect the FireWire interface – it’s as simple as that. Saffire interfaces are 100% compatible with Thunderbolt using this adaptor.

All Saffire FireWire and Thunderbolt-compatible interfaces now come bundled with Focusrite's Midnight plug-in suite for free upon registration. The Midnight plug-in suite models two of the most iconic Focusrite modules of all time – the ISA110 equaliser and ISA130 compressor – and gives them elegant, functional on-screen front panels for easy control.

Pretty good

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Unfortunately does not contain GSIF drivers so my Giga studio is buggy. Did not research enough before buying product, but for recording and using virtual instruments it's worked well. I have also had issues with firewire and this interface. But great sounding when it's working.
