Focusrite has added the Pro 26 to its Saffire range of FireWire/Thunderbolt compatible audio interfaces.

Focusrite Saffire Pro 26

Housed in a portable, desktop-sized chassis, the 
 Pro 26 is aimed at both studio recording and live applications, and features professional analogue and digital I/O – a total of 18 inputs and eight outputs includes four preamps, two instrument inputs, two headphone outputs, six line outputs, and Adat and SPDIF connectivity.

Like all Saffire interfaces, Pro 26 connects to a Thunderbolt port via a FireWire to Thunderbolt adaptor (not included) or directly to a FireWire 800 port with the cable provided.

Four Focusrite preamps promise low noise and distortion with high headroom, while precision 24-bit/96kHz digital conversion and JetPLL jitter-elimination technology maintain audio quality in both analogue and digital domains. The unit’s ultra-low-latency 26x8 DSP mixer/router offers flexible output routing and monitoring, as well as one-click presets for tracking, mixing or monitoring.

Remote control is available through Saffire Mix Control, a software application that runs on a host computer.

Although Thunderbolt is only available via the latest computers, an audio interface fitted with FireWire can be used on both older computers and Thunderbolt-equipped computers via an inexpensive adaptor.

· Four Focusrite Preamps

· Connectivity through FireWire or Thunderbolt
