In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, this interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. This is a unique plug-in bundle, comprised of Softube's world class TSAR-1R reverb, Tube Delay, and Saturation Knob.
TSAR-1R: Add space, depth and width to your sound—TSAR-1R is a reverb plug-in with world class sound and extreme ease of use. With a single slider, you can take TSAR-1R from realistic and three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls.
Tube Delay: A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slapbacks—or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.
Saturation Knob: Add grit and warmth to any sound source with this modeled output distortion unit. Use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop. Simply turn up the knob to add saturation, and use the three-position switch to alter the distortion character.
All Saffire FireWire and Thunderbolt-compatible interfaces now come bundled with Focusrite's Midnight plug-in suite for free upon registration – a $99 value. The Midnight plug-in suite models two of the most iconic Focusrite modules of all time – the ISA110 equaliser and ISA130 compressor – and gives them elegant, functional on-screen front panels for easy control.
The Saffire PRO 14 from Focusrite is an 8 input/6 output FireWire digital audio interface with legendary sonic performance and excellent flexibility. The interface is designed to make home studio recording and mixing easy without sacrificing audio quality. The unit features 2 award-winning Focusrite preamps, combined with a host of additional I/O options, that together allow the interface to get the tracks you want without having to constantly re-patch your studio.
Alongside the microphone preamps, 2 additional analog inputs, 4 analog outputs and S/PDIF and MIDI I/O, open the door to true multi-track recording. Two Hi-Z instrument inputs let you plug guitars and other instruments straight into the interface without the need of additional DI boxes. Two virtual loopback inputs are available for routing digital audio between software applications, ideal for capturing online audio.
The included Saffire MixControl is an 18 x 6 DSP software mixer that enables you to create 6 separate mixes without latency and route any combination of input signals and sequencer outputs to any of the outputs. Intuitive one-click configurations help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible. Also included is the latest version of the Focusrite Plug-in Suite, with compression, reverb, gating and EQ VST/Audio Unit plug-ins.
Focusrite's Xcite+ bundle features Ableton Live Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synthesizer and over 1 GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters.Focusrite Preamps
