RedNet 4 from Focusrite is an eight microphone preamp equipped, remote controlled audio interface that uses the Dante digital audio networking system to bring studio quality sound to any modern audio application. The unit features Focusrite microphone preamps with phantom power and 24-bit A-D conversion for excellent audio performance, with 119 dB of dynamic range at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Other functions include switchable line inputs, DI inputs on channels 1 and 2, and per channel high pass filtering.
The RedNet system was designed for use in multiple audio applications, from live sound rigs to multi-room recording studios, houses of worship, audio distribution installations, post production environments and anything in-between. The system is scalable and delivers near zero latency audio distribution, with the ability to expand I/O channel count, interface digital components, and/or bridge between Pro Tools HD or MADI and a Dante audio network.
There are three methods of connecting the RedNet 4 to a computer using a single Ethernet cable. These are via an optional RedNet PCIe card (for ASIO and Core Audio applications), directly into the computer's Ethernet port using DVS (Dante Virtual Soundcard) software where near zero latency is not essential, or through an existing RedNet 5 interface for connecting directly to Pro Tools HD, Pro Tools HDX and Pro Tools HD Native.
