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.

In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, the interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. Modeled after the Drawmer 1973 FET Stereo compressor hardware, the Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor is a plug-in that aids in balancing and shaping a mix. TSAR-1R Reverb adds space, depth, and width to a sound. Change settings with a single slider, from realistic three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls. Tube Delay is an echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled-tube stages - delivering everything from realistic room echoes, to rockabilly-style slap back, to dub reggae echo. Saturation Knob is a modeled output distortion unit that adds grit and warmth - use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy a drum loop.

Focusrite Preamps
Focusrite's preamp heritage lies at the heart of Saffire PRO 26, which includes four Focusrite-designed preamps
24-bit/96 kHz Conversion
The Saffire Pro 26 features A-D / D-A conversion with JetPLL jitter reduction technology as well as reliable synchronization
Multiple Connectivity Options
Saffire PRO 26 will connect to multiple ports on your computer including FireWire and Thunderbolt ports. Saffire PRO 26 connects to a Thunderbolt port via a FireWire to Thunderbolt adaptor (not included) or directly to a FireWire 800 port with the provided cable
Keep Your USB Buses Free
If you're connecting multiple USB devices to your computer such as external hard drives, mice, and keyboards, streaming audio over a separate FireWire port (or over a Thunderbolt port via an optional adapter) will allow you to keep your USB ports free and reduce the possibility of interference with other devices
18 Inputs and 8 Outputs
A host of I/O options is provided, including four mic/line pres, two of which have high-impedance instrument capability and 8 dB pads, plus two additional TRS inputs; two independently-controlled headphone outputs, six TRS line outputs, and a 'loopback' facility for routing audio between software applications via Saffire MixControl
Expandable Inputs with ADAT Optical
ADAT optical input allows extensive input expansion of your interface - expand Saffire PRO 26 with up to eight additional preamps or line inputs. Pair Saffire PRO 26 with Focusrite's OctoPre MkII eight-channel preamp and transform your interface into a 12 preamp unit
FireWire Bus-Powered
Connect directly to your FireWire port for bus-power - useful for live or mobile recording applications
Dual Headphone Outputs for Multiple Monitor Mixes
Give multiple artists independent, fully customized monitor mixes - two with independent headphone sockets and front-panel level controls
5-Segment LED Metering
Use the six front-panel LED meters to monitor input levels when recording
Portable Chassis
Saffire PRO 26 can sit neatly on your desktop, and will fit into a bag for mobile recording or live performance usage
Software Bundle
Included is a DAW in the form of Ableton Live Lite, Focusrite's Midnight and Scarlett plug-in suites, Novation BassStation virtual synthesizer, and 1 GB of Loopmasters sample content
Softube Time and Tone Bundle
Contains Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor, TSAR-1R Reverb, Tube Delay echo effect, and Saturation Knob, a modeled output distortion unit
