  • We found that the vast majority of users preferred routing in Dante Controller rather than RedNet Control. As a result, routing has been removed from RedNet Control, allowing us to focus development and support on adding new features.
  • Consequently there is no need for host mode which has also been removed.
  • When closing RedNet Control, the user will be asked to confirm this action. This prevents inadvertent interruption of an MIDI session which is active.
  • Devices will now appear in alphanumeric order.
  • DVS & RedNet PCIe will now appear as devices on screen, confirming they are present and correct on the network.
  • OS X – RedNet Control will now stay in dock when window is closed.

Important notes

  • The RedNet PCIe driver is only compatible with the latest firmware.
  • It is important to note that installing new firmware on to any RedNet Unit can take some time, please DO NOT turn the unit off or interrupt the firmware installation - Units will be unresponsive  during this process.
  • RedNet Control 1.7 will prompt users to upgrade their firmware to version v947 (Bkn-1)/ 947 (Bkn-2).
  • Firmware older than v947 (Bkn-1)/ 947 (Bkn-2) firmware will not be compatible with RedNet Control 1.6 or earlier.
  • During firmware updates, DO NOT add or remove devices on your Dante network.

Known Issues

  • Mac Only: RedNet Control cannot do two consecutive firmware updates. After the first run of firmware updates, please shut down RedNet Control and reopen to upgrade firmware on second wave of units.
  • Defaults message from Pro Tools does not clear linked channels on RedNet 4.
  • It's possible for RedNet Control GUI to display values of 1–7dB for RedNet 4 when controlled via SysEx. The gain on the unit will still be 0dB or 8dB.
  • During installation, a dialog can appear from Audinate's "Dante Control and Monitoring Installer" about firewall settings on Windows 8. Please manually confirm your firewall settings allow Dante Control & Monitoring through the firewall.
