Music / Audio Recording

RedNet is Focusrite's flagship range of modular Ethernet–networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinate's tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system. Ideal for use in any recording application, RedNet brings superb studio grade Focusrite analogue and digital I/O and next-generation Focusrite remote controlled preamps to Dante's robust and reliable digital audio network - providing a scalable, near zero latency audio distribution system that is fully interoperable with other Dante enabled products as well as being fully Pro Tools|HD and MADI compatible.

RedNet offers a powerful combination of features that make it ideal for any recording application including studio, location and live recording uses. RedNet is being used for various recording applications around the world including a RedNet event that was recently held at the prestigious Galaxy Studios in Belgium, Recording Engineer Matthew Weiner's mobile recording rig and Japanese Live Sound Recording Specialists, AS Project Co. Ltd's Pro Tools|HD live recording solution.

On the one hand, Focusrite’s superb DC-coupled mic preamplifiers and precision digital conversion ensure the very highest audio quality, while on the other, RedNet’s Ethernet-based audio networking technology makes the complex and expensive installation of bulky analogue multiway cables a thing of the past.

RedNet offers an extensive range of premium quality interfaces for recording, with eight or 16-channel line inputs and outputs, 32-channel digital I/O and eight channels of Focusrite’s transparent DC-coupled remote-controlled mic preamp and instrument inputs. RedNet also interfaces direct with Pro Tools|HD via RedNet 5, or with the most extensive MADI systems via RedNet 6, while the RedNet PCIe card makes it compatible with almost any other Windows or Mac recording system including Logic Pro, Cubase, Nuendo, Pro Tools and many more.

The modular nature of RedNet means it’s easy to tailor to your exact needs. You can immediately provide exactly the I/O you need on the most complex session – adding extra inputs is as simple as plugging another interface into a standard Gigabit switch – while all that’s required between studio and control room is a simple Ethernet connection.

Combining Focusrite’s enviable reputation for high-quality microphone preamps and precision digital audio conversion with the high-speed Dante Ethernet audio networking system, RedNet is a high-quality audio interface solution for any recording application no matter how small or large.
