Great interface for the money

  • Excerpt: I have started to get more serious in my studio and bought the Saffire Pro 40 to replace a MBox 2 Pro. For a minimal upgrade in money, the sound upgrade was huge. The pre-amps sound much clearer than those of the MBox. Basically I use it to record your typical rock band set up.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Limited Functions

Great quality, better price

  • Excerpt: The idea of "you get what you pay for" does not apply here. For the money I have not had a better interface. This is replacing my FireWire Duet which had better headphone and mic preamps, but the converters sound shockingly similar.
  • Pros: Converters, Monitor Control, Preamps, Price
  • Cons: Software UI

Decent, Stable Interface

  • Excerpt: While these lower end Focusrite interfaces don't have the best mic pres out there, they have remained quiet even at high gain levels so far. With the ADAT inputs, it will also be easy to add higher mic pres/A-D converters when the time comes too.

Good sound quality

  • Excerpt: The product installed quite smoothly. It required a lot of tweaking of parameters to run smooth on Windows 7 though. The hints on the Focusrite website helped, but this hassle seems a bit unnecessary in 2011, sorry.

Great sound

22 February 2011
  • Excerpt: This is one of my first exploits into serious recording-- previously I was using straight to USB mics. The Saffire works great in itself, but it's far from intuitive when using with Logic. I'm going to need to do some more reading to figure out it's intricacies...
