Lost conection firewire ,


Check you have the latest software or firmware drivers from their website at Focusrite.com

Check that the FireWire cable is connected properly.

Try using the supplied power cable.

Try using the other FireWire port found on the back of your Saffire product, and also try different ports (if you have more than one) on your computer.
If you have any other FireWire devices connected, try disconnecting them, as they may be restricting the FireWire bandwidth too much if connectedon the same bus.
NB: You may have more than one FireWire port on your computer. Note that they may be connected to the same bus, even though they appear to be physically seperate. This will be the case if you have a FireWire card with multiple FireWire ports on (all ports on the card will be on the same bus), and is also often the case if you have multiple ports inbuilt on you system.
Increase the FireWire buffer size on your FireWire card, found at C:/Program Files/Focusrite [Saffire product]/Driver/ASIOControlPanel.exe (where [Saffire product] is the name of your Saffire product). Its default setting is 2ms, but you may find that increasing it helps connectivity and will improve audio performance, at the cost of increasing latency.

My Saffire Le doesn't show up in AUDIO DEVICES but all is instaled corect and in my device manager I can that fire wire and Saffire are ok please try to help... it began after I reinstaled windows (now...


Go to Volume Controls - Options menu - Properties... is it in the Mixer drop down box there? You might find the problem is that any onboard soundcards you have on the motherboard are now set to default since you reinstalled. In which case go to device manager and disable it. If problem persists try a reinstall of saffire whilst the onboard card is disabled. Some motherboards allow you to disable the onboard sound from the bios menu too, that could be something to try

Why does my volume control make clicking sounds when i adjust the volume knob?I use a imac


Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to your computer.
On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a USB cable, it will plug into any USB port on your computer.
• If the music in your library skips or the audio breaks up when you play it in Windows Media Player, there might be a problem with the audio driver installed on your computer. Typically, this type of problem only occurs toward the end of songs (in the last 20 seconds or so).
In some cases, you can work around the problem by disabling optional speaker effects that are collectively known as enhancements. If disabling speaker effects solves the problem, you might need to update your audio driver.

Firewire audio problem


Hey Waterleo
I am running a very similar system. Black macbook and saffire not LE.
So this could be your problem. When you first connect the firewire cable to your mac from the saff you will see on the inputs a signal coming from nowhere. This is the mac syncing with the saff. Im pretty sure its the same with the LE but you must wait until your Line Mode(pad) lights turn green this means the two are connected. Try waiting for this it may take upto 3 or 4 mins sometimes depending if you are using the external powersupply or not.
If you have already done this and still nothing try this. FIrst plug a guitar into an input of the saff and confirm there is a signal being produced. If so your problem may be in your system prefs. 
Apple menu --> System prefs----> sound
you will see a window with 3 tabs labled input, output and sound effects.
go to input and confirm that the saffire is in the below list and highlighted, the same for output. 
Ignore sound effects.
Also i just looked at my saffire and i am not being rude now but i am assuming that your new to this tech. so there is a pot(knob) on the front for your saffire labled monitor, this is your main volume for the system.
hope this helps my friend.

Firewire connection lost


Ok, here it is. There is an answer is the answer based section on the Focusrite website. Basically it is recognizing it as a firewire device and not an audio device, or so I have gathered. So you need to uninstall the Saffire software and then: 1. Find your FireWire (IEEE 1394) controller in Device Manager (START>CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>). 2. Click "Update driver" 3. Select "Browse my computer for driver software" 4. Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" 5. Install the driver that ends with "(Legacy)". 6. Reinstall your Saffire driver using the latest version from the Focusrite website, and re-connect your device.
Hope this helps,
Cheers - DJ Zerokewl
