Focusrite's unparalleled pre-amp legacy forms the foundation of this new interface, with eight award-winning Focusrite pre-amps. Legendary sonic performance is combined with the very latest in firewire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility, and future-proof, rock-solid driver stability. With Saffire PRO 40, sonic integrity reigns supreme. The eight Focusite pre-amps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology ensure pristine audio quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains. Alongside the eight Focusrite pre-amps are a host of i/o options; 10 analogue outputs, ADAT i/o, stereo SPDIF i/o and 2 virtual ‘loopback’ inputs for routing digital audio between software applications - ideal for capturing online audio. Every channel features phantom power, with the first two channels also featuring -9dB pads for additional headroom. Front panel 5-LED metering for each analogue input offers accurate viewing of levels. Saffire PRO 40 comes with a Suite of Focusrite plug-ins. All-new Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins provide a significant upgrade from standard sequencer effects, bringing a touch of class to your session. Focusrite’s established excite+ bundle is also included. The bundle includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation’s Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gig of royalty-free samples. 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 customisable software to cover every possible monitoring need, providing a set of controls for any set-up from basic stereo to full 7.1 surround.

Taking it out of the box we were not disappointed. It comes in a sturdy rack mountable unit with clear instructions for use. Connecting to the PC via firewire proved to be a bit awkward as the cable provided in the box was for the older Mac type connection (I expect this would be because this is much harder to find now so Focusrite provide this cable but not the more common version). A quick trip to Maplin provided us with the correct firewire cable however and connecting it was a doddle. The unit once connected links well with the PC and provides the inputs and outputs needed for clear and quick recording. So far it has worked well, has a sturdy feel to the knobs and switches and it has all the connections I need to run my PC based software package. I like the fact it has 2 headphone sockets as you can monitor 2 people whilst recording, There are much more expensive units you can buy for this type of use but for home recording with a good sound quality this unit does a great job.
Focusrite's Mixer app is very flexible and goes well with Nuendo 8, Cubase 8 and Logic Pro X.
The RED and MIDNITE suites bonus are state of the art software packages.
The preamps are very quiet and the routing software Saffire Mix Control is if a little mind bending at first, logical.
Works well with Logic Pro and sundry mikes.
