Pro quality audio and flexibility without sacraficing your entire budget

The Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 Firewire Interface is an 8-in, 6-out professional firewire audio interface bringing Focusrite’s renowned audio quality and conversion at a truly affordable price. You can record at rates up to 24-bit/96kHz on your Mac or PC. Included in this package is the inspirational Xcite+ Pack. It’s a DVD-ROM packed with royalty-free loops and samples along with copies of Ableton Live Lite and Novation Bass Station. You’ll get right to work with this all-inclusive audio production package and produce stellar sounding tracks as a result.

The Saffire PRO 14 features 2 high-quality microphone preamps located on the front panel for easy access. They come in the form of  Mic XLR combo jacks which allow you to connect not only your favorite condenser or dynamic mics but line/instrument inputs as well. 2 additional analog inputs along with 4 analog outputs, SPDIF I/O and MIDI I/O can all be found on the back panel helping to keep all your cabling and connectivity neat and tidy on your desktop.

Also included with the Focusrite Sapphire Pro 14 is Sapphire MixControl software. It’s an 18 x 6 DSP mixer that enables you to create 6 separate mixes without latency. Operation is as easy as one-click to route any combination of input signals and sequencer outputs to any of the Sapphire PRO 14’s outputs.

Whether you record professionally in a studio, take your act on the road or simply want to make great, professional sounding song productions in your bedroom, the Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 gives you high-quality connectivity, pro-level audio conversion, a wealth of creative software content and above all else the famous Focusrite sound. Best yet, it all comes in a portable feature-filled firewire box sporting the name “Focusrite”. What’s not to like?

All of Focusrite's FireWire interfaces are fully compatible with Thunderbolt using a simple FireWire to Thunderbolt adapter. Focusrite fully supports the use of Thunderbolt with our FireWire interfaces.
