The Focusrite Saffire 6 USB
is a 2 In / 4 Out USB audio interface
. It uses the same award-winning Focusrite mic-pres as the rest of the Saffire range. This makes it the best value, and best sounding interface
in its class. Its output configuration is also ideal for laptop DJs.
It is ultra-reliable and easy to set up, providing you with the simplest route to record into, and play back from your computer. It has lower latency
than any of its rivals, and professional analogue
converters ensure you get the best possible signal into your recording software.
With 2 mic-pres, multiple
outputs and MIDI I/O
, the Saffire 6 USB
can be at the centre of your home recording set-up. However, its reliability means that you can take it out and record on location with confidence. The 2 in 4 out configuration is perfect for laptop DJs who need to be able to cue up material, or send
two different signals to either side of a DJ mixer
This is our most affordable interface
to date, and it comes with Ableton Live Lite 7, Novation's Bass
Station synthesizer and over a gigabyte
of samples. In addition to all this, you get the Focusrite FX Suite, which includes a compressor
to upgrade your standard AU/VST
The Saffire 6 USB
is certainly the easiest way of getting the classic Focusrite mic-pre into your recording set-up.
Focusrite has, over the past two decades, built a reputation as the market leader for high quality recording equipment, with its mic-pre technology as the cornerstone of that enviable reputation. The original mic-pre, as featured in the early Focusrite Forte console
, used rotary switched gain
controls and high quality audio
transformers. This mic-pre is still used by many of the industries greatest producers and is the sound
of countless hit records. Today, Focusrite design equipment for a far greater audience, from professionals to amateur enthusiasts, all with varying budgets.
As with the Red and ISA ranges, the Mic-pre technology found in the Saffire range is designed to the highest possible standards. They uphold the same wide bandwidth
philosophy featured in the original Forte console
, back in 1989. All Focusrite mic-pres feature custom components which have undergone an intense testing and qualification process. With the facts and figures in, Focusrite designs then have to pass the essential listening stage
. Any design can measure well on the test bench but only a great design can be qualified in the studio. The FET-based design in the Saffire range is no exception and ensures the same low noise
and distortion performance as earlier transformer-based designs. It delivers clarity without colouration and exhibits the signature transparency for which Focusrite have become famous.
