RedNet 1 connects to your network with a single Ethernet cable. It’s remotely controlled via the network and can be placed anywhere in your facility. It offers eight channels of line-level analogue in and out, with Focusrite’s precision 24-bit A-D and D-A conversion for superb audio performance, and 119dB dynamic range at sample rates up to 192kHz. The rear panel includes standard DB25 connectors for analogue patchbay or breakout cable interfacing.
RedNet is Focusrite’s new flagship range of Ethernet-networked studio interfaces, based around the tried and tested Dante Ethernet audio networking system from Australian company Audinate. Focusrite’s RedNet is the first to offer IP network audio interfaces for the recording studio – or any application that requires moving high quality audio around with ultra-low latency.
RedNet 1 can be used simply as a means of converting 8 channels of audio and delivering it somewhere else on the network at near-zero latency. If you need to connect RedNet 1 to your computer there are three methods:
- The RedNet PCIe card for Core Audio and ASIO applications such as Logic and Nuendo
- RedNet 5 for Pro Tools HD, Pro Tools HDX and Pro Tools HD Native via DigiLink connectors
- Directly to your computer’s Ethernet port using a standard Ethernet cable (with “Dante Virtual Soundcard”)
Scalable, up to 128 inputs and 128 outputs: Supporting even the most demanding studio environments, choose from four high quality audio interfaces and connect as many as you like to your RedNet network
Pristine audio quality with low latency: RedNet stands up to the sonic demands of the professional studio with 120dB dynamic range and less than 3ms latency at any sample rate when using the RedNet PCIe card
Robust and reliable networked audio system: Dante is a tried and tested audio networking standard, endorsed by companies like Yamaha, and by Britannia Row, who rely on it for major live events on a regular basis
Professional networked audio system: With 24-bit operation at up to 192kHz sampling and JetPLLTM jitter-reduction technology, RedNet is a professional studio system supporting the needs of any studio
Easiest studio configuration – ever: Interfaces can be hot-swapped anytime and controlled remotely via the included RedNet control software.
Supports any open DAW package: No need to spend hours learning a new platform – RedNet supports Pro Tools 9, Logic, Nuendo or any other open DAW running on Mac and Windows computers
