"This has some Classic Pre-Amps"

The Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 is an interface that connects to your computer via FireWire. It is very stable and will not crash or cause you system any problems at all. The drivers have not been updated for my desktop computer yet but so far I have not had any issues to want to update. The pre-amps are very good; you can choose which style of pre-amp it is you want to use. There are a total of ten different pre-amps to choose from and all of have a different “feel” and warmth to them since they are based off of classic pre-amps.


There are 28 inputs and 28 outputs on this interface which is plenty for your set up. Depending on how many instruments and microphones you have set up you could need more or less. But for me I have a drum set and about 7 other instruments that are all ready to be recorded so I needed an interface to be able to handle that.


One thing I can say about this interface is that it can cause some issues with you computer if you don’t have a fast processor. My processor is an i7 core and it runs smoothly but I can only imagine using it on a slower computer. It would cause a world of problems especially when using certain pre-amps.


When you purchase this you will also get some great plug-ins from Focusrite too like the reverb and gate plug-ins. You can use these plug-ins in any program you want because they are VST’s. The only reason I really chose to go with this interface is for how many inputs it has. The pre-amps feature played no part in my decision though it was a nice bonus to be able to switch pre-amps on the fly and get some different sounds instantly. This price of this interface does cost more than I wanted to spend but after working with it I see why it cost so much.
