Recording Anavae with the Focusrite Saffire PRO 26 interface.

The Saffire PRO 26 is part of Focusrite’s family of professional studio-quality Firewire/Thunderbolt compatible* audio interfaces, with full 24-bit/96kHz conversion and four award-winning Focusrite mic preamps with phantom power. The best-sounding interface in its class, Saffire PRO 26 was designed with both studio recording and live musicians in mind, offering extensive input and output capabilities for maximum flexibility. Twenty-five years of mic preamp excellence form the foundation of the Saffire PRO 26 interface. The four preamps, along with the very latest in mix control software and interfacing technology, combine to deliver seamless integration, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability. At the heart of Saffire PRO 26 lie four award-winning Focusrite preamps. These allow unparalleled recording flexibility and ensure low noise and distortion with plenty of headroom to capture the full dynamic range of even the loudest drumkit or guitar amp. Precision digital conversion and JetPLL™ jitter-elimination technology maintain pristine audio quality in both analog and digital domains. Inputs 1 and 2 are available both as mic-level rear-panel XLRs and as front-panel TRS (1/4 inch) sockets at line or instrument levels, and include 8dB pads. Inputs 3 and 4 appear on the rear panel as combo XLR (mic)/TRS (line) sockets. There are two additional rear-panel TRS line inputs, making a total of six analog inputs, for which 5-segment LED metering is provided. The PRO 26 includes S/PDIF I/O, and an optical digital input that can be configured either as S/PDIF or as ADAT format, the latter allowing expansion of the interface with, for example, Focusrite’s OctoPre MkII, for a total of 14 analog inputs. Saffire PRO 26 also features two virtual Loopback inputs, for routing digital audio between software applications — ideal for capturing online audio. On the output side, dual headphone outputs, six line outputs on TRS jacks, and S/PDIF coax are provided. Main monitor controls, including volume, dim and mute, are included on the front panel. Saffire MixControl, the ultra-low-latency 26 x 8 DSP mixer/router software provided with Saffire PRO 26, sets a new standard for audio interface control. It features flexible output routing and monitoring, as well as intuitive one-click setup solutions designed to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible.

See how church broadcasts are telecasted using the Datavideo SE-3000 video switcher.

Available as either an 8 or 16-input model, the SE-3000 is a purpose-built, fast, and easy to use HD/SD live production switcher filled with an impressive number of features and functions. The features include a touch screen to select EFX, stills, and balance colors. Using a touch screen means that the operator does not have to remember effect numbers and can see what they are selecting. Additionally, it has dual multi-view outputs, chromakey, dual PiP, 3D functions, multi language support and a full size keyboard.

The processing unit has a convenient, shallow front to back chassis, designed to accommodate mobile applications. An added interesting and powerful feature is the "Flex Source®" component, which is similar to having a second M/E. The 8 input version is 'one card' upgradable to the 16 input version which includes 8 up converters. Every other feature is the same in both units.
