This bundle includes the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 togehter with the Focusrite OctoPre MkII and an Optical Cable.
The FOCUSRITE OCTOPRE MK2 Mic Preamp features eight channels of Focusrite pre-amplification and a built-in 24-bit / 96 kHz ADAT output, OctoPre MkII is Focusrite’s powerful input upgrade for your Pro Tools system, or any digital audio workstation.
The FOCUSRITE OCTOPRE MKII combines award-winning pre-amps with high quality digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology, OctoPre MkII is the best sounding multi-channel mic-pre in its class. The digital output allows users to make the most of often-neglected ADAT inputs; ideal for expanding the number of mic-pres for interfaces like the Saffire PRO 24. Connect OctoPre MkII to your audio interface’s ADAT input to create a high quality, multi-channel recording solution, ideal for tracking drums.
OctoPre Mark 2 is equally suited to the live environment as a quality mic-pre expansion for any analogue or digital console, or hard disk recorder. With line outputs on every channel, each mic-pre can be routed to a separate channel on an analogue mixer, with the ADAT output left free to send a copy to a digital recorder.
OctoPre MkII has been optimized for drum recording. Designed not to clip, 10dB pads are provided across each channel, and the gain range of the pre-amps has been tailored to handle extreme levels from sound sources like the kick drum. OctoPre MkII’s first two channels also feature DIs, so it can equally turn its hand to recording Guitars and Bass.
The Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 Multi-Channel Firewire Audio Interface is a 2U size multi-channel firewire audio interface. Liquid technology combines with Saffire PRO firewire interfacing to deliver a host of authentic pre-amp flavours, seamless software integration, excellent routing flexibility and future-proof, rock-solid driver stability.
Two of Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56’s eight pre-amps utilise the third generation of Focusrite’s Liquid Pre-amp, each providing a choice of ten different pre-amp emulations. These include emulations based on the Neve 1073, Pultec MB-1, Telefunken V72 and seven more. A harmonics dial on each Liquid pre-amp allows the user to compensate for variance in vintage originals of the same model, or to creatively add levels of 2nd, 3rd and 5th Harmonic distortion to shape the pre-amps performance.
The Liquid pre-amp analogue front-end allows for huge flexibility in resistance and capacitance parameters. With a flexible signal path and variable impedance value, it can mimic the interaction characteristics of different classic mic-pres. Combined with comprehensive dynamic convolution data, the Liquid pre-amp captures all the key variable elements of different mic pre designs.
Liquid Saffire 56 doesn’t just offer pre-amp variety; sonic integrity is also guaranteed throughout. Both the Liquid and Saffire pre-amps 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.
Liquid Saffire 56 also comes bundled with the Focusrite plug-in suite. The latest Focusrite Compression, Reverb, Gating and EQ VST/AU plug-ins provide a significant upgrade from standard sequencer effects, bringing a touch of class to your session.
