Focusrite announces Saffire PRO 26 (price TBA), the latest addition to the company's award-winning Saffire PRO range of FireWire/Thunderbolt compatible audio interfaces. Focusrite's Saffire PRO 26 offers the same high-quality audio design as the Saffire range of interfaces in a portable desktop-sized chassis.

Designed with both studio recording and live performance in mind, Saffire PRO 26 features a comprehensive selection of analog 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 and S/PDIF connectivity.

Like all Saffire interfaces, Saffire PRO 26 connects to a Thunderbolt port via a FireWire to Thunderbolt adaptor (which is not included) or directly to a FireWire 800 port with the cable provided. An external power supply is recommended for use in Thunderbolt applications, particularly when using phantom power.

Four Focusrite preamps allow recording flexibility and ensure low noise and distortion with plenty of headroom to capture a full dynamic range. Precision 24-bit/96kHz digital conversion and JetPLL jitter-elimination technology promise pristine audio quality in both analog and digital domains.

It also offers Saffire Mix Control, a software application that runs on the host computer. The ultra-low-latency 26x8 DSP mixer/router features flexible output routing and monitoring for custom monitor mixes, as well as single-click presets to help set up a session as quickly as possible, whether tracking, mixing or monitoring.
