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.

New version not compatible with Linux

This review mainly exists to flag up the fact that the Focusrite have updated the Saffire Pro 40 under the good and that currently (22/11/15) that breaks the Open Source Linux drivers.

Earlier versions (I bought mine at the start of the year) work with the Linux FFADO subsystem and though it was a bit of a fiddle to set up, mine's been solid under that ever since. I'm warned you need to be careful with your choice of Firewire cart. I use a Texas Instruments XIO2000(A)/XIO2200A based card and have had no problems.

More generally, this is a good, reliable inteface. I run mine with a Behringer ADA8000 acting as slave inputs in the live room and an Art TPS II plumbed in to inputs 5 and 6. This gives me plenty of inputs and some different preamp character, as well as conveniently allowing access to four XLR inputs without fiddling behind the rack.

There are two headphone outs on the front, which is useful, and they seem to be routed to inputs 1 & 2 and 9 & 10 by default, which is useful. This may be something you can change on Windows or Mac -- I'm not sure.

The unit features a comprehensive internal mixing system for zero latency monitoring. It took a bit of figuring out at first but it's basically pretty straightforward once you get your head around it. As the interface runs with such low latency anyway I've rarely used that feature.

I had terrible trouble initially with poor quality TOSlink cables (see my other reviews) but once I had a decent pair of cables the sync to the external ADAT box has been fine.

All in all, this is a good and flexible interface if you need to work with more IO than the entry level cards tend to offer.

I'd give it an extra star if Focusrite could co=operate with the Linux developers and make the info they needed to make the drivers work well available without them having to painstakingly reverse engineer things.

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.

I bought this unit as an upgrade from my M-Audio Fast Track Ultra.
My immediate impressions are very good indeed. The sound seems so much clearer and the preamps are better. The MixControl software is extremely flexable and the Loopback feature is great. This is my first time using a Firewire soundcard and I had some trepidation about it, but I now wish I had started using firewire sooner. The drivers seem to be well written with no pops or crackles using Sonar Platinum. Physical layout is easy to understand and the headphone outs have plenty of power. This unit will also work with Thunderbolt standard by using an appropriate adaptor. I would definitely recommend the Saffire Pro 40 and I would like to thank Thomann for their prompt and professional service.

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!!!
