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!!!

A good entry level firewire audio interface

Build quality
This is built with very solid and high standard material. When I had a chance to firstly touch this piece of equipment, the size, feel and weight are very similar to my Yamaha Motif XS rack. The LED light meter has been built with great LED light and they are very clear and transparent.

Functionality
It doesn't have a lot of fancy features like preamp sim in Saffire 56. However, I personally don't believe they are useful anyway if you are serious about preamp. I found the ADAT digital input useful to link with my UAudio 4-710D. The software provided is not that straightforward and I took some time to figure it out the correct setting before get the things work properly (in particular, in some incidences there was an issue integrating this with my Logic pro, but it was finally resolved after carefully examine the settings). So I would say it is not straightforward out of the box experience.

Sound
I believe there is a lot of good audio interface out in the market provide a better sound tracking (e.g. RME and Pro Tools). However, my view is that Focusrite certainly the top at this price range. With the number of channels, I believe it will be a very good tool for home studio recorder.
