Always working tirelessly to support our loyal customers, Focusrite just released a v2.0 software upgrade for Saffire, their cutting-edge mobile firewire audio interface with onboard DSP.
Focusrite recently released a v2.0 software upgrade for Saffire, the cutting-edge mobile firewire audio interface with onboard DSP. This software is free for owners of the Saffire and is available for download from the Focusrite site.
Focusrite has announced full details for SaffireControl, the software application that unlocks the onboard 24-bit/96kHz DSP of the Saffire audio interface, while also providing access to the hardware’s advanced settings. Focusrite is also confirming that Steinberg’s Cubase LE software is to be bundled for free with Saffire.
Introduced at the NAMM Show 2005 by Focusrite, the company behind the design of the Mbox, Saffire is a compact, portable desktop unit featuring multiple I/O and powerful onboard processing for the modern audio engineer.
The SaffireControl software suite (from the same team that created the control application for The Liquid Channel) includes a comprehensive I/O control plus Focusrite EQ, Compression, Amp Modelling and Reverb plug-ins. Focusrite front-end design is combined with software to provide effects processing on the incoming audio and foldback reverb over any of the separate headphone/monitor outputs, ensuring artists are kept happy and audio is tracked.
NAMM Show 2005 sees the launch of the Focusrite Saffire, a new breed of firewire interface with onboard DSP and 24-bit/192kHz processing. Saffire fuses state-of-the-art hardware with highly integrated software to take audio interfacing one giant step closer to the professional studio experience.
