RedNet Leads The Way for Mobile Recording Engineer Matthew Weiner

Focusrite LogoThe Focusrite RedNet system is best known for its ability to operate very high channel counts at extremely low latencies over a standard gigabit Ethernet network, making it ideal for applications such as multi-room recording studios, post-production facilities and educational institutes. But it also has great benefits for mobile recording engineers, due to its flexibility, reliability and portability.

iTrack StudioMatthew Weiner is one such engineer who has recently adopted the RedNet 2 as his main recording interface. RedNet 2 is a 16-channel A-D/D-A converter which very simply provides 16 line-level inputs and 16 line-level outputs to a RedNet system in a 2U package. Matthew works in a variety of situations, from home recording spaces and rehearsal studios to concert halls, where he records live classical and jazz music performances. His system comprises a well-specified Lenovo laptop running Adobe Audition and Cockos Reaper software applications, with his RedNet 2 and some rackmounted mic preamps in a rolling 6U rack case.

Matthew values his investment in RedNet immensely, as it has given him much greater flexibility in terms of infrastructure and logistics while maintaining professional-quality sound.

For more information on RedNet, please contact us at info@daleproaudio.com or call 888.462.7828.
