    Quality Preamps
    In addition to six of Focusrite's legendary mic-pre's, two of the Liquid Saffire 56's pre-amps utilise the third generation of Focusrite's Liquid Pre-amp, providing the choice of ten different pre-amp emulations. These include emulations based on the Neve 1073, the Pultec MB-1, Telefunken V72 and seven more. A harmonics dial on each Liquid pre-amp lets you account for variance in vintage originals of the same model, or use levels of 2nd, 3rd and 5th Harmonic distortion creatively to shape your sound.
    The Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 interface doesn't just offer pre-amp variety, as sonic integrity is also guaranteed throughout. Both the Liquid and Saffire pre-amps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLLTM jitter elimination technology ensure pristine audio quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains.
    Connections
    Alongside the two Liquid and six Saffire pre-amps, the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 offers a host of i/o options – 10 analogue outputs, 16 channels of ADAT i/o, stereo SPDIF i/o, MIDI i/o and 2 virtual 'loopback' inputs for routing digital audio between software applications – ideal for capturing audio playback within your computer. Mic, Line and Instrument inputs all utilise independent connectors, with the input type for each channel selectable via custom control software. Consequently, all the inputs can remain permanently connected, ready for whatever your recording session demands. In addition, word-clock i/o is provided on BNC connectors, allowing the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 to act as either a master clock for your studio, or as a slave to an existing clock. Every channel features an independent phantom power and a high pass filter, switchable from the front panel, with the two instrument channels also featuring -9dB pads for additional headroom. In addition, front panel 5-LED metering for all inputs (including ADAT and SPDIF) on the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56, offers accurate viewing of all levels.
    Included Software
    Saffire Mix Control, the zero-latency 18 16 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 features unparalleled output routing and monitoring. It also provides intuitive one-click set-up solutions, a clear and concise mixing layout, large on-screen metering for inputs, outputs and submixes and control over the choice of liquid emulation.
    Focusrite now include the Softube Time and Tone Pack with this interface as a free download.
    Softube Time and Tone Pack is a unique plug-in bundle (valued at $198 / £129) which includes three of Softube's world class plug-ins: a reverb, a delay and a distortion. The Softube Time and Tone Pack includes the following three plug-ins:
    Tube Delay
    A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modelled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slapbacks—or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.
    Saturation Knob
    Add grit and warmth to any sound source with this modelled output distortion unit. Use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop. Simply turn up the knob to add saturation, and use the three-position switch to alter the distortion character.
    TSAR-1R
    Add space, depth and width to your sound—TSAR-1R is a reverb plug-in with world class sound and extreme ease of use. With a single slider, you can take TSAR-1R from realistic and three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls.
    Get the Perfect Mix
    The Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 provides two independent headphone buses, each with their own level controls available on the front panel. A dedicated stereo monitor mix output features pads for improved sound quality when connected to active monitor speakers, and an 'anti-thump' circuit protects your monitor speakers from spikes when booting up or shutting down the unit.
