They''re not looking to be flexible, they're looking to get into the thunderbolt interface game. If you want USB, that's what the scarlette line does. AFAIK it's the same pre's, same A/D...etc... If you look at all of Focusrite's line you'll see they attack all markets, Firewire, USB, and now Thunderbolt.

According to Focusrite, these new Thunderbolt units are a new design and are supposed to be a step up in preamps, conversion, etc., vs. the Saffire/Scarlett range.

That's good to know, regardless their other lines are top notch of the affordable interfaces game in my opinion. I imagine this one will be too, was bummed though on the no two TB ports...not that I need a new interface.

I hope so, not that the Saffire is bad....but you would hope the next gen Is. A Step up

It should make you want to buy it because it sounds so good.....not because you need it

The box holds the converters, but the bay's are swappable. You entertain the interface of your dreams

Api's
Neve's
UA's
Clean Pre's

Would be cool

My audio supplier told me availability for Canada for the Clarett range is mid to late June. The 8 Pre X will be in the $1,500 to $1,600 Canadian range. Looks like a great unit <sigh>

Cheers,

The PC side has blundered the release of compatible hardware.......why don't more OEM's get in gear and release cards?

Apex might have beat you to the 500-rack-slash-audio-interface idea, though. http://www.aphex.com/products/usb-500-rack/
