***Special Offer*** Introducing The Plug-In Collective
Focusrite’s Plug-In Collective brings monthly plug-in deals to registered and new customers.

The advent of Focusrite’s new, ultra-low latency interfaces opens up a world of new possibilities for recording and overdubbing, using multiple DAW plug-ins in real time rather than needing special cue mixes and outboard DSP.

There’s no shortage of great plug-ins today, with new and exciting instruments and effects coming out all the time – but which to choose?

At Focusrite, we believe in freedom – the freedom to choose the plug-ins that get musicians, producers and engineers their signature sound, exactly the way they want it. To help in the quest, Focusrite is working with some of the most innovative and prestigious plug-in companies around to provide exclusive offers, tutorial content and more.

Since this summer, we’ve worked with some of the finest software companies to bring customers fantastic, exclusive plug-in offers every month. But for those who have only just joined the Focusrite family, December's offer is an “in case you missed it” where we will be reactivating all offers from August onward's.

Customers will have free access to full versions of:
Positive Grid BIAS FX LE guitar effects processor, exclusive for Focusrite customers, Eventide 2016 Stereo Room Plug-in worth $199.00, Sound Radix SurferEQ 2 Boogie plug-in, developed exclusively for Focusrite customers, iZotope DDLY Dynamic Delay Plug-in worth $49.00


The Focusrite Saffire PRO 40 represents the new generation of Focusrite multi-channel FireWire/Thunderbolt audio interface. It is the best-sounding interface in its class; attentively designed with today’s project studio in mind.

Focusrite's unparalleled preamp legacy forms the foundation of this new interface, with eight award-winning Focusrite preamps. These are combined with the very latest in FireWire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and future-proof, rock-solid driver stability.

With Saffire PRO 40, sonic integrity reigns supreme.
The eight Focusite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLL™ jitter-reduction technology ensure pristine audio quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains.

Alongside the eight Focusrite preamps are a host of additional I/O options; 10 analogue outputs, ADAT I/O, stereo S/PDIF and two virtual ‘loopback’ inputs for routing digital audio between software applications. Every channel features phantom power, with the first two channels also featuring -9dB pads for additional headroom. Front panel five-step LED metering for each analogue input offers accurate viewing of levels.

Saffire MixControl, the ultra-low-latency 18 x 16 DSP Mixer/Router software provided with Saffire PRO 40, sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface control. It features unparalleled output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive one-click options, a clear and concise mixing layout and large on-screen metering for inputs, outputs and submixes.

Two independent headphone buses are provided, each with their own level controls available on the front panel. A dedicated stereo monitor mix output features pads for improved sound quality when connected to active monitor speakers. An 'anti-thump' circuit protects your monitor speakers from spikes when booting up or shutting down. Front panel controls include a main monitor dial with dim and mute switches, all of which fully integrate with customisable software to cover every possible monitoring need, providing a set of controls for any set-up from basic stereo to full 7.1 surround.
