Today Focusrite announced their new Saffire PRO 26, an 18in/8out FireWire and Thunderbolt compatible audio interface. This is of interest to me as eventually I will need to replace my Digidesign (Avid) 003 interface. Designed with both studio recording and live musicians in mind, Saffire PRO 26 features a comprehensive selection of professional analogue and digital I/O options. A total of 18 inputs and eight outputs includes four preamps, two instrument inputs, two headphone outputs, six line outputs and ADAT & S/PDIF connectivity. This extensive feature set allows you to expand and augment your recording or live setups, ensuring you get the most out of your interface. Check out the video above as Austin Wender and friends record ‘Back Home’ with the Saffire PRO 26.
