Hi Dism, the pre-monitor option is great, if only AVID would let us use it by adding a "software input monitor on/off" function in PT9. As is now, even with faders un-linked, us saffire 56 users cant take advantage of our super cool pre-monitoring feature properly.

See this post: http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=307309

Also,

Default Re: Considering a Saffire 56. Opinions wanted

Let me explain my question further. On my current rig (Windows 7/Pro Tools 9.0.3/Digi 002R Black Lion) I track at buffer 64 and listen through plugs as I go. This is working great and is an acceptable amout of latency (I really don't even hear any...). I am considering replacing the 002R with a Saffire 56, but have a couple of concerns:

1. Will a Saffire 56 cause any additional round-trip latency than a 002R does? I'm asking if the two hardware units differ at all re latency. I usually think in terms of software latency, but what about hardware latency?

2. Does the Saffire 56 Mix Control software add any latency?

3. Any problems with the current Windows 7 drivers for the Saffire 56?

That is:

1. latency rig 1: Windows 7/ProTools 9.0.3/Digi 002R

- vs-

2. latency rig 2: Windows 7/ProTools 9.0.3/Saffire 56

Thanks !!!

1. No.

2. No.

3. Not that I'm aware of. The latest MixControl drivers are very stable and well suited for Pro Tools.

Thanks for the reply. I'm gonna buy the 56 and report back - if - I have any issues. My long-time sales associate Brian Bookstaff at Full Compass Systems is selling me the 56 for $829 no tax free shipping and a 30-day return poilicy just-in-case. Wish me luck !!!
