    easy to setup and use, gives a nice clean sound. Seems very robust and well built.
    would have been nice to be able to switch between speakers, rather than having to switch off one set if you only want to listen to the other set. However there are other products that will do that job, so no real big issue

    The easy to use unit comes with some nice software such as the Novation Bass Station, loops from Loopmasters and for those who need a DAW to get going in Alberton lite. Being a G5 OSX 10.5.8 ppc user I checked Musicrooms web info on product, couldn't see much & went to Focusrite website to check it would work with my beloved old G5! Focusrite have a simple page which shows what product works with what system & mine was listed as compatible. But when box arrived saw system requirements were OSX 10.6 & higher! Saw review with same system as mine all working fine! So took the plunge, I connected the Saffire to firewire card; Sonnet Firewire 400 from Allegro, the sound was distorted; obviously digital noise. To cut a long story short (ish) I called Tom on helpline @ Focusrite, took their advice on a new firewire card (I had narrowed it down to Firewire) in this case a SIIG Firewire 3 port card,and hey presto everything works as it should & it's great! Preamps nice, plenty of in & outs, midi ok, all quality stuff, Saffire Mixcontrol is great once you've spent time getting to know it and the inbuilt compressor & EQ & Reverb are of the quality you expect from Focusrite. I've yet to really try out the VRM headphone system but I'm sure it can be of some use as a reference tool. Headphone output volume is adequate. For the price this little box delivers a pro quality sound. I'm using logic 8, Reason 4, T-Racks, M-Audio keyboards, Triton, acoustic guitars/electric guitars & bass, straight in or through Line6 POD, & Vocals.
