Works really well. Be careful with the 18i20 and USB 3. The drivers changlog is full of fixes for audio issues when run on a USB 3.
I use a powered USB hub for everything other than the 18i20 and my hhd Rig Kontrol, keyboard, ilok, lighting interface. One last thought.
FireWire is on the outs. Almost all the new interface series introduced in the last couple years are USB. One more last thing.
Most of the Scarlett series interfaces can be used as standalone units. My 18i20 is mostly used as an 8 channel preamp right now. With a Mac Pro I could track with low buffer settings with not too many plugs and I could mix plug loaded sessions. The work around is to change the Playback Engine buffer setting.
Firewire even though their different companies and way different units. I dunno I just want something that works with my rig. Thankin ya! This not the case. However firewire is still better at bidirectional audio transfer and has a higher bandwidth. Thunderbolt is a powerful technology as it is a port that taps directly into the PCI bus. It is a PCI-e slot. Many companies are starting to come out with hubs that connect to computers via Thunderbolt and offer a host of ports such as ethernet, thunderbolt, VGA, HDMI, even Audio.
Firewire fully supports the bandwidth of our Saffire line of Interfaces. Upgrading the chipsets in that line would offer no additional functionality and increase cost to the user.
We are continuing to fully support and make this line of products as they work great and the port is still available and becoming more accessible as new thunderbolt enabled PCs enter the market to join the Macs. Headphone Outs sound good, clear. I'm not going to be using the Mix Software, faders are down on that.
So far so good. Hi Katherine: I'm looking to add 8 preamps to my setup and both options looks very attractive so I want to know if they will sound different, because the price is the same for both units.

In the case of Cubase, at least, this means that it stops playing. Like their rivals, Focusrite lay much stress on the quality of the preamps in the Saffire Pro 40, and they certainly deliver decent performance for the money. Beyond that, there's little more to say.
Hi Apollomusic, In addition to what I was saying earlier. Please note that Saffire MixControl v1. I have just purchased a Saffire Pro40 and am experiencing the same issues FireWire is capable of safely operating critical systems due to the way multiple devices interact with the bus and how the bus allocates bandwidth to the devices. Try to set a system restore point before installing a device driver. To support both elements, FireWire dedicates a certain percentage to isochronous data and the rest to asynchronous data. Apple Mac:
These show up in the list of inputs that are available to your recording program, and from there on in, it's plain sailing. In Use Like their rivals, Focusrite lay much stress on the quality of the preamps in the Saffire Pro 40, and they certainly deliver decent performance for the money.
