They seem to think because its the same on 2 PC’s they thought it could be being caused by faulty power or something it must be fofusrite faulty unit and they’re going to pick it up and replace it for me. I don’t have a firewire port so that limits my options. I don’t really have another option tho as can not afford a new computer.

Others have said that the headphone output isn’t very loud, which may be a problem when you’re recording at high volumes, but I haven’t encountered a single bad thing about it. Also contacted Focusrite via email prior to purchase fochsrite got a response quickly so it’s all good news so far.

The preamps are a mirror foucsrite of the audio source – something which definitely could not be said about my previous M-Audio interface or M-Box2. The Emu has great conversion rates, which the Saffire rivals. The sound plays but it slows the playback right down and every sound is a horrible glitchy mess. The noise is definitely not coming from the monitors as it only happens when theyre connected to the soundcard and they were fine with my old one, also the cables worked fine with my last card.

I need a least two separate outputs – to send loops to different amplifiers. I used to use two mics one per source or track separately but I kinda found a great sweet spot that had a nice balance of guitar to voice.

See any errors on this page? Saffire interfaces famously offer supremely low latency recording and the 6 USB is no different, with a minimum latency of just 77 samples. From a Saffire 6 owner.

Focusrite Saffire Pro Vs. The headphone output is also very quiet even with the volume turned right up although noise cant be heard through the headphones this could saffjre be because of how quiet it is and I cant hear the noise as its at such a low level. I’m not an incredible performer but I attached a clip of me singing and playing acoustic guitar in my untreated apartment bedroom, this isn’t a serious recording I just wanted to show what it was capable of doing in a less than stellar environment ie what the average joe would be using the interface for.

Wasted money for a device that does not work as claimed. Focusrite’s Saffire range of audio interfaces has proved popular with many a computer musician.

I am thinking of buying a saffire 6 but to be honest I am very wary of Focusrite as I have been stung by them before in that I purchased a saffire pro 10 then they immediatly stopped making it and producing drivers for it so I have had all kinds of issues trying to run mine with windows 7,focurite suggest using driver legacy on the IEEE interface but this made my system unstable.

Another issue brought up in this forum is the usb 1. The FTP isn’t too bad though I have this broken input and the preamps suck. It offers a front-panel Mixer dial to set the balance between your input source s and the playback mix, while the headphone mix lets you toggle between the main mix, sent to outputs 1 and 2, or outputs 3 and 4.

So far I have no real issues with it, but it should be noted I only use this as a sound device, not as an input device for now. I am using a PC Laptop. Like other interface manufacturers, Focusrite doesn’t limit itself to just providing the box itself, as Saffire 6 USB comes with a useful bundle of ‘extras’. The headphone output on the front of the Saffire 6 USB can be switched to monitor the different sets of outputs.


The Logic Express program did not recognized focusritw device. Also another thing that I havent seen mentioned in other cases of noise and interference is the sound music im playing, not the noise is extremely quiet, I can turn the output volume right up on the card, and foucsrite monitor and speaker volume to max and its still too quiet whereas with my last card it would have been unbearably loud.

So far it hasn’t been a very positive experience trying to get this to work with my Vista laptop so I thought I’d share on here in the hope that someone has an idea how I can get this thing working!
