Need Lots of I/O Plus Premium Preamps? Here You Go!
So, what's with those Liquid preamp channels? Here's the skinny. Love Manely, API, Unversal Audio, and Neve? Well, Focusrite equipped the Liquid channels with models of those manufacturers' gear and more. 10 models, to be exact. When you're working with that combination of great sounds and flexibility, you're gonna come up with something good. Six more premium Focusrite preamps round out the Liquid Saffire 56's mic inputs, and you'll love what the whole package does for your projects.
DSP mixing and routing makes it easy to take control of your signals, for easier tracking and pro-style monitoring. You get dedicated stereo monitor mix outputs and two separate headphone busses, so it's a snap to create distinct headphone monitor mixes for two performers at once. Be a pro!
Plug-ins, we've got plug-ins! The Focusrite goodness doesn't end with the hardware. You also get Focusrite compression, gating, reverb, and EQ plug-ins. These plugs are modeled on genuine Focusrite hardware, so you're getting the good stuff, right inside your DAW! They're VST/AU-compatible, so you can use these plug-ins with a whole range of different systems.
All Focusrite FireWire interfaces are fully compatible with Thunderbolt using a simple FireWire to Thunderbolt adapter. Focusrite fully supports the use of Thunderbolt with its FireWire interfaces.
