The Saffire 6 USB from Focusrite is a two-input, four-output USB audio interface using the same microphone preamps as found in the rest of the Saffire range. Along with the included software suite for Mac and Windows, the unit is easy to set up and together they provide the simplest route to record into, and play back from a computer.

Professional analog-to-digital converters along with low latency ensure the best possible signal. Rock-solid reliability means it can be taken out for recording on location without fear. The input/output configuration is perfect for the laptop DJ who needs to be able to cue up material, or send two different signals to either side of a DJ mixer.

The interface ships with a copy Ableton Live Lite 8 recording software allowing the user to begin recording immediately. Also included are Novation's Bass Station virtual synthesizer, and over a gigabyte of samples, while the Focusrite FX Suite features a compressor, gate, reverb and EQ, to compliment any already owned Audio Units or VST plug-ins.
