Towards the end of the Mac Installer, the PACE plugin authoriser will pop up. During this time you have the option to authorise the VST & AudioUnit plugins to run natively on your Mac. If you simply want to use the Saffire hardware including the onboard DSP processing, then you can quit the authoriser and begin using Saffire. If you want to run the host powered VST & AudioUnit plugins on your Mac, then proceed with the PACE plugin authoriser. If you are connected to the internet on the Mac you are authorising, then authorisation can be done online. Select 'Internet Activation', and click Next. You will be directed to a web page where you must enter the following information:
- Full name
- Saffire Serial Number (printed on the bottom of the Saffire unit)
- Saffire Registration Code (printed on the sleeve of the Saffire Resources CD)
- Your Country
Once you have entered this information, press 'Submit'. You should now see a page announcing the success of your plugin authorisation. Congratulations! Have fun!
If you are not connected to the internet on the computer you want to authorise, you must select the
Manual Authorisation method.
If you have previously authorised your plugins on 4 other computers, you will not be allowed to authorise the plugins, as only 4 authorisations are allowed per Saffire user. If you run out of authorisations, please contact Focusrite Tech Support for assistance.
