The new Saffire Pro 24 is about to hit the streets, with 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 - so you can record the output of say your web-broswer in your DAW.
Front panel 5-LED metering for each analogue input offers accurate viewing of levels. The software control panel - Saffire Mix Control, has zero-latency 18 x 8 DSP Mixing/Routing. 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. 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. Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included. 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'. Shipping in July at a price of around £249
