Dale Pro Audio is proud to carry the RedNet system from Focusrite.
Rednet is Focusrite’s 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 forms a scalable system that comprises high-quality, versatile interfaces that deliver traditional Focusrite quality sound and performance, with exceptional value for money. Fundamentally, RedNet is a near zero-latency audio distribution system. It is highly expandable; Audinate’s Dante technology enables a single link on the network to handle up to 512 channels (I/O) at 48kHz.
Every analog interface delivers dynamic range of 119dB, with 24-bit resolution at sample rates up to 192kHz. Each embodies the most advanced digital audio conversion designs available, including the latest A-D and D-A components, to provide exceptional quality. And with RedNet, you don’t need additional cabling and complexity to sync to a master clock: the system takes care of that automatically as rock steady clocking between units is carried over Ethernet with JetPLL™ for ultra-low-jitter.
How Does It Connect?
There are three methods of connecting the RedNet network to your computer: RedNet 5 (for Pro Tools HD, Pro Tools HDX and Pro Tools HD Native), the RedNet PCIe card (for ASIO and Core Audio applications) and directly into your computer’s Ethernet port with DVS or ‘Dante Virtual Soundcard’.
How Do I Control It?
RedNet Control is Focusrite's software interface for routing, controlling and configuring RedNet interfaces from a computer on the network. Typically running on the computer housing the RedNet host, RedNet Control provides a "drag and drop" interface for routing audio to and from RedNet PCIe, RedNet 5 and Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS). This provides a fast, effective and simple method of routing audio as a complex matrix is not required. Simply drag a unit from the "Unrouted" section and it will be routed within moments.
Check out some case studies showing RedNet in action!
RedNet at World Revival Church
RedNet 5 HD Bridge provides a simple, reliable interface between the FOH console and the Pro Tools HDX recording rig, while RedNet 3 provides the perfect solution for the church's streaming initiative – all done over the Dante digital audio network.
RedNet at Galaxy Studios
Focusrite product specialist Adrian Hogg demonstrated the recording of a full live band performance using a range of RedNet devices across the studio's existing network.
Systems Engineer Philip Reynolds incorporates RedNet 1 and 4 into his front-of-house rig for The Killers' world tour.
Northwestern Michigan College
The first official installation of a RedNet system within the US occurred in January, 2013, at Northwestern Michigan College (NMC), located in Traverse City, Michigan. They took delivery of one RedNet 2, two RedNet 4's, and a PCIe card, to be used as part of their Audio Technology program.
Mobile Recording with Matthew Weiner
Before RedNet, Matthew Weiner used to haul large multi-core cables and mixing desks to and from his live recording gigs. Now, all he needs is his RedNet rack, a slimline Cat-6 cable reel and his laptop.
