By PSW Staff • June 4, 2009 The Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 package is now shipping. (Larger image offered below) The Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 flagship Firewire interface is now shipping and widely available in stores across the U.S. The Liquid Saffire 56 has generated a great deal of excitement as it marries Focusrite’s Liquid technology with its new generation of Saffire interface technology (pioneered by the critically acclaimed Saffire Pro40). The Liquid Saffire 56 features two Liquid mic-pre-amps evolved from the original award winning Liquid Channel. Each Liquid pre-amp offers a choice of 10 different classic pre-amp emulations including the API 3124+, Neve 1073, Pultec MB-1, Telefunken V72, Focusrite’s own Red 1, and more. In addition to eight mic pres, Liquid Saffire 56 includes 10 analog outputs, 16 channels of ADAT i/o, stereo S/PDIF or AES i/o (on RCA phono), MIDI i/o, 2 virtual ‘loopback’ inputs, for routing digital audio between software applications, and BNC wordclock i/o. Saffire Mix Control software provides ultra flexible control over routing and monitoring, which includes presets for immediate set up of commonly used mixing situations, and full metering across all inputs, outputs and submixes.
