Saffire Pro 24

This review is for the Saffire Pro 24 from Focusrite.

I use the interface for tracking in my home studio. I record mostly acoustic guitar, cajon drum, percussion, and vocals.

The Saffire has decent preamps. They sound extremely clean with most mics I have used and the ability to have zero latency monitoring with the Saffire is a huge plus.

On the downside the preamps often need to be cranked to the upper end of the pot before a useable signal comes through. I contacted focusrite on this to see if it was a faulty unit and they said that the pots are not linear and will often need to be cranked. In my opinion this is a slight problem because there is no headroom left in the preamp. I tend to use my external Pres and go line n in order to bypass the focusrite pre and give myself more wiggle room.

All in all I'd give the Saffire a 6.5/10. The routing flexibility is great and the converters sound good but the preamps aren't all they are cracked up to be.
