Focusrite has released v2.0 software update for the Saffire Mobile Firewire Audio Interface. The software is now available for download from the Focusrite web site in the "Downloads" section. The update includes: enhanced operation at 192kHz, new graphics and tool tips for the Saffire Control software, and improved Firewire bus connectivity.

In addition to 4 inputs, 10 outputs, and up to five separate user-defined stereo mixes, the Saffire also provides Focusrite plug-ins including compression, EQ, reverb, and amp modeling. Powered by the Saffire's internal DSP, the plug-ins are available during recording and also on playback as VST or AU software plug-ins with no drain on the host computer CPU.
