Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 - Review
4 October 2011
Summary: I have been producing music for pleasure/leisure for the past 4 years. I have strictly used my laptop and software to produce all my music, of course with a midi keyboard and Launchpad controller. I decided it was time for monitors and an interface also for recording live instruments.
Hardware is great. Software & support could use work.

Summary: I bought this breakout box to replace an aging M-Audio interface (1010 LT, I think it was). I wanted the external box so I could have easier access to inputs & outputs, and because I needed a shiny new toy. After comparing reviews and prices, this box seemed like the perfect option.
Summary: the only problem i encountered with the saffire 14 is that my msi motherboard built-in firewire (with an extension bracket at the back) was not putting out the proper i/o. windows 7 identified it and loaded the drivers yet the saffire won't lock in with the software.
Summary: Don't buy if using Windows 7, although it says it is compatible on the site. I've been, no exaggeration, for one month and a half with the sluggish support team doing all kinds of tweaks and juggles with my computer.
Summary: The Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 works great on my Mac Pro. At the time of writing, using Mac OS 10.6.7. Directly accessible from apps, or the Mac's standard I/O. You can also use the Saffire Pro's headphone jack for audio out. I got poor quality input using the default settings in Bias Peak Pro.
Summary: This works fantastically on my Mac Mini. Mic Preamps: clear and transparent, both with condensers and dynamics. Max gain is around 60dB. With input volume knob turned 90%, you can do noise-free whispers on an SM57, just to give you an idea of the gain range.
Summary: This is good value for money and good sounding although mine had a fault with one of the pre amps and will be going back to the shop. I will probably will not replace it with another one and buy the TC electronic Impact Twin instead.
Pros: Отличная модель в своем ценовом диапазоне. Брал для работы с видео и аудио, пишу через нее микрофонный сигнал и свожу аудио дл видеороликов. Работаю в основном в Reaper.
; Драйверы стабильные, удобный программный микшер.; Подойдет для домашней студии.
