Amazing unit for the price

I've been into audio engineering for the best part of two years now and i'll be honest, i had no idea what a 'warm' pre-amp sounded like, I could tell mp3 from wav, analogue synth from digital but i could never define what warmth was, even after using an array of pres (Mackie, M-Audio, Behringer, Tascam, A&H, Soundcraft ect.)
Once I had this set up correctly and in my home studio, within 5 minutes i knew what warmth was. This unit sounds absolutely incredible, so clean and natural whilst retaining its 'Focusrite character' and at this price, its a steal.
The feels of the unit is very solid, built very well and sturdy in construction.
The mixcontrol software that comes with this unit is a little confusing at first but after a little playing around with it, it really becomes a very useful bit of software allowing you almost infinite routing options.
Overall, i would seriously recommend this unit to anyone getting into multitrack recording, it sounds phenomenal, looks amazing and is built for lifetime use. No doubt i'll invest in the Octopre MKII sometime in the near future now knowing of focusrites amazing quality.

absolute bargain!!

I bought the saffire pro 40 on a reccomendation from a few shops and it has simply not disappointed, easy to use, fantastic preamps and has produced some excellent results for most applications. If you are looking to record at home and like me are on a super tight budget this interface is a must!! There are other cheaper alternatives out there but it is certainly worth stretching your budget if you want high quality results!!!

Good for a home studio

I've used this for a year now and it's fine for a small home studio. I use it mainly to record rehearsals and do demos for friends. If you're looking for high quality broadcast-ready tracks you would be advised to move up a notch.
The preamps sound reasonably OK though they're nothing exceptional. They need a lot of gain when using dynamic mics, but I haven't had any serious problem with this. There are plenty of inputs, and I particularly like having two on the front panel as I do a lot of recording myself and this is very handy.
Latency is very low, but because most of the DSP is handled by the computer it does have limitations.
The software that comes with the unit for routing is easy to use and there's plenty of help on YouTube to get you started.
Overall I'm very pleased with this interface and for the price I can't imagine you could get any better.

Driver problems

Focusrite sorry but never again.

I can't comment on the sound but the unit is well built very solid & looks great. But next to useless if you can't supply the proper drivers so I can use it.

3 days trying to get it to work with very little help from focusrite customer support.Even after I supplied them with loads of info & screen shots pointing out the issue.

The unit locks on to the firewire perfect no problems appears in cubase device manager as it should but no sound no meters working during play back nothing.Tried recording a track nothing no sound going in nothing coming out...

Very annoyed because ive wasted nearly ?500, 3 days on this unit & I had planned to do some recording this weekend.
