Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 Multi IO Firewire Audio Interface   - Information

Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 is the flagship, 2U multi-channel firewire audio interface. Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 features two stunning Liquid Microphone Preamplifiers. Liquid Saffire 56 combines Focusrite's Liquid technology with the Saffire Pro firewire interfacing, delivering a host of authentic pre-amp flavours. Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 also features seamless software integration, excellent routing flexibility and future-proof, rock-solid driver stability.

In addition to the two Liquid Preamps are another six of Focusrite's legendary mic-pre's, rounding the count to 8 mic pre's. The Liquid Saffire 56’s pre-amps also utilise third generation Focusrite’s Liquid Pre-amp, providing the choice of ten different pre-amp emulations. The emulations include models based on the Neve 1073, the Pultec MB-1, Telefunken V72 and seven more. A harmonics dial on each Liquid pre-amp lets you account for variance in vintage originals of the same model, or use levels of 2nd, 3rd and 5th Harmonic distortion creatively to shape your sound.

Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 doesn’t just offer pre-amp variety; sonic integrity is also guaranteed throughout. Both the Liquid and Saffire pre-amps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLLTM jitter elimination technology ensure pristine audio quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains. Alongside the two Liquid- and six Saffire pre-amps, are a host of i/o options; 10 analogue outputs, 16 channels of ADAT i/o, stereo SPDIF i/o, MIDI i/o and 2 virtual ‘loopback’ inputs for routing digital audio between software applications - ideal for capturing audio playback within your computer. Mic, Line and Instrument inputs all utilise independent connectors, with the input type for each channel selectable via custom control software. Consequently, all the inputs can remain permanently connected, ready for whatever your recording session demands. In addition, word-clock i/o is provided on BNC connectors, allowing Liquid Saffire 56 to act as either a master clock for your studio, or as a slave to an existing clock. Every channel features an independent phantom power and a high pass filter, switchable from the front panel, with the two instrument channels also featuring -9dB pads for additional headroom. Front panel 5-LED metering for all inputs, including ADAT and SPDIF, offers accurate viewing of all levels.

Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 Saffire Mix Control, the zero-latency 18 x 16 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with features unparalleled output routing and monitoring. It also provides intuitive one-click set-up solutions, a clear and concise mixing layout, large on-screen metering for inputs, outputs and submixes and control over the choice of liquid emulation. Two independent headphone buses are provided, each with their own level controls available on the front panel. A dedicated stereo monitor mix output features pads for improved sound quality when connected to active monitor speakers. An 'anti-thump' circuit protects your monitor speakers from spikes when booting up or shutting down the unit.
