Record Anywhere, with Premium Focusrite Quality!Focusrite's Saffire 6 USB makes pro-quality recording possible from your desktop and your laptop — at home and just about anywhere! These days, the only things that keep us from being able to take a premium recording setup to the source (instead of the other way around) are the size of the rig and the recording options it offers. Focusrite takes care of both of these issues with the Saffire 6 USB! This little beauty gives you two channels of input (complete with a pair of premium preamps, naturally), four channels of output, and an absolutely amazing array of plug-ins, production software, loops, and samples. Get ready to look at the "studio" in a whole new way, thanks to the Saffire 6 USB!
Getting great sound into your computer starts with your interface's preamps. If you plug into less-than-stellar preamps, you get less-than-optimum results from your DAW — no matter how much plug-in magic you apply. That's why Focusrite built the Saffire 6 USB around two of their premium preamps, and included the I/O configuration flexibility you need for different recording applications. The front inputs inlcude phantom power, attenuation pads, and gain controls, so you've got complete command over your signal. Great preamps deserve great converters. That's why you'll find quality 24-bit/48kHz A-D converters onboard the Saffire 6 USB.
This little box definitely gets the job done, and it's a breeze to pack up with your laptop and go. But Focusrite didn't stop there. They bundled the Saffire 6 USB with a ton of outstanding software! You get Novation's Bass Station, Ableton Live 7 Lite, hundreds of "Mike the Drummer" drum loops, and 1GB of Loopmaster samples! And did we mention the plug-in suite? The Saffire 6 USB includes compression, reverb, gating, and EQ plug-ins — many of which were modeled after their classic Focusrite hardware counterparts! Once you open the Saffire 6 USB's box, you'll be in audio-production heaven.

by D.J. Twisted from United StatesThis little unit does just what I need it to do. Easy to operate. If there was anything that could be improved it would be to add a EQ program with it.

Best interface in it's class
by Tim Bunch from Boise, IdahoI bought this after buying an Avid MBox Mini. The Saffire 6 blew away the MBox with respects to latency and buffer underrun issues. I play softsynths live and needed something that could keep up with ... read more [+]Native Instruments' Massive and other synths. With the MBox I got artifacts (pops and clicks) when playing with Massive. The Safffire seems to handle Massive with no problems, even on CPU intensive patches.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit on a Core i5 laptop with Reaper (64 bit) as my DAW. I've experienced no problems with drivers.
The construction is solid, the knobs don't feel cheap, and it's heavier than it looks although it's not heavy by any means. That's good, it means it won't fall off the table easily. The balanced outputs have only a small amount of noise when my monitors are cranked (which I wouldn't recommend playback at those levels). close [-]
by Joe Schmoe from Mountain View, CAThis review is based of a comparison between the Focusrite and my EMU 0404 USB. I bought the EMU b/c there are just so many 5 star reviews around the web from people who sound like the know what they... read more [+] are talking about. All the available performance data make that thing seem like the best bang for the buck. I have tried all my mics into the Focusrite and I am flabbergasted. I mean flabbergasted! My Vocals, guitars, and even my various collections of oddball stringed instruments have taken on a new life. Even my headphones seem cleaner and more detailed through this. Last week if I had read this review, I wouldn't have believed it. Bottom line, the preamps sound great. If that ain't rite, why go on? My best mic has taken a clear in performance. It used to sound a lot like my cheaper mics, but now, it's clearly a stand out.

I am flat overjoyed with this device. I actually haven't been able to make a final vocal cut b/c it just makes me smile and even laugh while I'm tracking it. It may take me a few weeks to really come to grips with the sound I'm capable of making now. Who would have thought? close [-]
