    Product Description

    The Saffire Pro 10 I/O is loaded with stunning features.
    Boasting the same integrated I/O and monitoring software as it's big brother. That's right, it comes with SaffireControl PRO software. It's rack-mountable chassis means space left on the desk for other necessary studio components. Preamps derived from the award-winning Green series, the pres are very musical and transparent. Don't forget the MIDI I/O for sequencing and controllers. Dual headphone outputs with independent volume controls. A mere taste of what you can do with the Saffire Pro.

    Housed within a similar stunning 19 inch rack-mount case with detachable rack ears, Saffire Pro 10I/O combines eight channels of Focusrite pre-amplification with eight balanced line outputs and stereo SPDIF i/o.

    The pre-amps featured in Saffire PRO 10 I/O are a derivative of the award-winning Green Series. This pre-amp design upholds the same high bandwidth philosophy whilst boasting class-leading specifications. In addition, the converters adhere to performance specifications far beyond other similarly priced interfaces. As with all Saffire solutions, the unit can be either bus-powered or powered via an external PSU. The unit has also been designed to take full advantage of the external PSU and to maximize performance when powered in this way.

    SaffireControl PRO delivers a control application that avoids any annoying dropdown menus and provides comprehensive custom mix solutions. It also offers quick-select tracking and playback solutions, as well as both the float and shrink/expand facilities found in the original.

    Saffire Pro 10 I/O also features MIDI I/O alongside a host of additional processing features. Two channels with DI are also provided, eliminating the need for a separate DI box.

    In addition to the control software, Saffire Pro 10 I/O comes bundled with the same acclaimed Compression, Reverb, Amp Modeling and EQ VST/AU plug-ins for use in the mix.
