Focusrite Saffire PRO 26 FireWire Audio Interface
The Saffire PRO 26 from Focusrite is an 18-in/8-out Thunderbolt-ready FireWire 400 audio interface. It is capable of capturing audio in up to 24-bit/96 kHz resolution and features 4 Focusrite preamps with selectable 48-volt phantom power on its rear panel. Additionally, the Saffire PRO 26 has 2 rear-panel 1/4" line inputs, 2 front-panel instrument/line inputs, and ADAT optical and S/PDIF digital I/O connectivity options.
The interface features a FireWire 400 port and includes a FireWire 400 to 800 adapter cable. The Saffire Pro 26 is portable and can be bus-powered via FireWire, making it an ideal mobile recording rig. An optional FireWire to Thunderbolt adapter allows for Thunderbolt connectivity, albeit at FireWire 400 speed. To help you get started recording, Focusrite has included a downloadable software bundle with DAW, plug-ins, and virtual instruments.
The Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, VST) delivers accurately modeled plug-ins based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. The plug-ins allow for conveniently exploring the sound of the hardware originals from within Pro Tools (10 and above), along with other audio software. The software is a free download for new and current owners of the Saffire PRO 26.
