The VRM Box is an ingenious piece of studio kit. Using a pair of headphones, the VRM Box allows you to virtually mix your tracks in a variety of environments, using your choice of speakers. For example, you can reference your tracks in a virtual professional studio, through a pair of professional monitors. Or, you can listen to how your track would sound when played back through TV speakers in your living room!
In pursuit of the perfect mix, it is heavily advised to listen to your track on as many different playback systems as possible, in order to make sure that it sounds good on all of them. However, this presents an obvious space and budget problem, as it's impractical and far too expensive for most of us to own such varied set-ups. However, Focusrite have solved this problem, as all you now need is a computer, a pair of headphones and the ultra-compact VRM Box.
Focusrite's Scarlett and Saffire interfaces have been adopted by many professional and home recording artists and producers across the world. Given their price, the quality of the preamps and converters on these units have made them into two of the most popular interface ranges ever! However, whilst the Scarlett line has seen a number of new models introduced recently, the Saffire range has remained largely the same for a good few years now. So, with the newer Scarlett models providing USB 2.0 alternatives to many of the interfaces in the Saffire range, does this mean that the Saffires are edging closer towards discontinuation? Read on and we'll bust the myths and explain the differences between these popular lines...
If you're after a professional Firewire interface then you'll probably be interested in our special Focusrite Saffire bundles, which throw in Focusrite Midnight Plug-In Suite (worth £69) for only marginally more than the interfaces cost on their own!
Focusrite Midnight Plug-In Suite provides authentic software emulations of two classic Focusrite modules: the ISA110 EQ and the ISA130 compressor. Both model all the features of the originals and provide classy graphical interfaces for making your own edits.
