Focusrite have today announced the Saffire PRO 26 audio interface.
The Saffire Pro 26 is a 18 in/8 out interface using FireWire or Thunderbolt™*
Saffire PRO 26 connects to a Thunderbolt port via a FireWire to Thunderbolt adaptor (not included) or directly to a FireWire 800 port with the cable provided. Focusrite claim that its dual-protocol compatibility (Firewire and Thunderbolt) means it will work seamlessly for years to come with the next generation of computers. The unit has four mic/line pres, two of which have high-impedance instrument capability and 8dB pads, plus two additional TRS inputs; two independently-controlled headphone outputs, six TRS line outputs and a ‘loopback’ facility for routing audio between software applications via Saffire MixControl.
