What Focusrite say....
Focusrite Saffire PRO 24
All of Focusrite's FireWire interfaces are fully compatible with Thunderbolt using simple FireWire to Thunderbolt adapter. Focusrite fully supports the use of Thunderbolt with our FireWire interfaces. For more details visit the answerbase.
The Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 is part of Focusrite’s new generation of FireWire audio interfaces. As with all Focusrite interfaces, Saffire PRO 24 is the best sounding interface in its class, attentively designed with recording musicians and the modern home studio in mind.
Twenty-five years of mic preamp excellence form the foundation of this new interface, with two award-winning Focusrite preamps. These combine with the very latest in mix control software and FireWire interfacing technology to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability.
With Saffire PRO 24, sonic integrity reigns supreme. The two Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst quality digital conversion and JetPLL™ jitter-elimination technology ensure pristine audio quality as your audio flows between the analogue and digital domains.
Alongside the two Focusrite preamps are a host of I/O options; two additional analogue inputs, six analogue outputs, ADAT inputs (for expanding the interface with, for example, Focusrite’s OctoPre MkII), stereo S/PDIF I/O and two virtual 'loopback' inputs for routing digital audio between software applications — ideal for capturing online audio. Front panel five-step LED metering for each analogue input offers detailed viewing of levels.
Saffire MixControl, the ultra-low-latency 18 x 8 DSP mixer/router software provided with Saffire PRO 24 sets a new standard at this price point for audio interface control. It features flexible output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive one-click set-up solutions designed to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible
