Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 Firewire Audio Interface
Twenty-five years of mic-pre excellence form the foundation of the Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 firewire interface, with two award-winning Focusrite pre-amps. These combine with the very latest in mix control software and FireWire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability.
With the Focusrite Saffire PRO 24, sonic integrity reigns supreme. The two Focusrite 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 two Focusrite pre-amps are a host of I/O options, two additional analogue inputs, six analogue outputs, ADAT inputs (for expanding the interface with, for example, Focusrite's OctoPre), stereo SPDIF I/O and 2 virtual 'loopback' inputs for routing digital audio between software applications – ideal for capturing online audio. In addition, front panel 5-LED metering for each analogue input on the Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 offers detailed viewing of signal levels for accurate monitoring.
The Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 interface comes bundled with Saffire Mix Control. The zero-latency 18 8 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with the Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface control. It features flexible output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive one-click set-up solutions designed to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible.
The Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 also comes with all the additional tools needed to start making music straight away. These include the latest version of the Focusrite Plug-in Suite, providing a significant upgrade from your standard sequencer effects. The suite includes Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins.
Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included with the Saffire PRO 24. The bundle features Ableton Live Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gig of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters and 'Mike the Drummer'.
Focusrite's Saffire PRO 24 firewire interface is designed to capture every subtle nuance of your recordings, dropped seamlessly and effortlessly into the digital domain, leaving you free to enjoy the freedom of a creative modern music making experience.
The Focusrite Saffire 24 USB interface includes the Focusrite Plug-in Suite, which is produced by the same team responsible for Novation's nio FX rack and the Saffire Pro 40 Control. The suite provides the perfect upgrade from your standard sequencer effects, with all-new Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins.
Each plug-in has a host of presets that provide a reasonable starting point, delivering suitable solutions for the chosen sound source. Having selected a preset, you can then go on to fine tune these settings to ensure that you always get the sound that you want.
The Compressor and Gate have been modeled on Focusrite's hardware devices, using the measurement of custom optos to achieve the signature Focusrite sound. (All Focusrite optos are tuned by ear, just like in the old days of analogue design, ensuring a faithful recreation of those classic vintage 19240s optical compressors.)
With the same signature as the original Focusrite EQ curves. Focusrite's R&D team used state-of-the-art numerical transform techniques to create an authentic response across the entire audible frequency spectrum for this software EQ, and the Reverb is based on classic algorithmic studio reverb designs.
'Xcite+' comes on a DVD-ROM filled to the brim with royalty-free loops and samples alongside some powerful applications, ideal for getting the new user started, or to expand the experienced user's creative toolbox.
Ableton Live Lite 7 forms the foundation of this collection, providing the ideal platform to create, produce and perfom. Novation's classic bass synth, 'Bass Station' enables you to create bass and 303-styled patches. Alongside these comes 'Mike the Drummer', a collection of 572 inspiring and original live drum loops ranging from 79 to 191 bpm, with loop lengths ranging from 1 beat to 4 bars, as well as extended freestyle solo sections. Individual drum hits and REX files are also available. These drum loops are however, just the beginning. An entire gigabyte of royalty-free samples, exclusively compiled by LoopMasters, provide a selection of loops and samples large enough to satisfy the appetite of even the most demanding artist.
The Xcite+ Pack bundle is Windows XP, 32 bit Vista, Mac OS X and Intel Mac compatible.

The ISA110 and 130 modules, created for the legendary Forté console in the 1980s, represent the epitome of Focusrite analogue audio processing, and performed a vital role in the making of literally thousands of hit records – they still change hands for thousands today. Their new digital incarnation in the Midnight suite for AU, VST and RTAS gives them stunning new hi-def on-screen front panels so realistic you'll believe you can grab a knob with your fingers. In fact, of course, you can tweak them with a click and a drag of the mouse, or graphically edit the response curves. But whichever way you want to go, behind each exquisite graphic front-panel lies powerful DSP code that exactly models the original analogue processors that inspired the Midnight suite, with all the warmth, clarity, control and incredible sound of those original analogue designs.
A glance at those clear, clean analogue-style front panels and you'll know exactly how to use the Midnight suite. The controls are simple and intuitive. The meters are responsive and accurate. And the sound… these plug-ins sound as good as they look, putting classic Focusrite clarity and warmth under your fingertips.
Midnight EQ helps you manage problems and inspires solutions. It's a 4-band full-parametric EQ with peaking and shelving plus low- and high-pass filters. High end control up to 15kHz – just what you need to give a vocal that extra something. +/- 16 dB of gain in each band. Overlapping midranges with fully variable Q. Midnight EQ gives your tracks full, rich bass, a pure, open top-end and beautiful midrange definition.
Meanwhile Midnight Compressor brings you control at your fingertips. It features compression ratios of 1.5 to infinity, adjustable attack and auto/manual release and simple, clear metering that helps you keep an eye on gain reduction, threshold and input/output levels. Input and makeup gain settings help you get the gain structure just right for perfect control. Vocals are right there, with a warmth and naturalness you've never quite been able to reach before. Bass lines gain a solid, firm foundation that makes you think the guy's still in the room. Suddenly your tracks sit perfectly in the mix, you're on a roll and your hair's standing on end. Know the feeling? You will.
The Midnight modules deliver incredible power, flexibility and a gorgeous sound that launched a thousand hits. If you're looking to take your tracks to the next level, you need the best: in the past, maybe that step was beyond your reach. But now the power to give your productions that extra edge is within your grasp. Step into Midnight, from Focusrite. And don't look back.
Customer Comment Our Response 22-Jul-2014 The Focusrite Pro 24 is a great sounding unit. It's replaced my Saffire Pro 10 I/O and the pre amps are even better sounding! Great unit for the price. The ADAT I/O is a welcome addition for expanding the number of ins and outs. The Midnight plugins that came free with this are a must too! 13-May-2014 Great interface at a great price.
