Focusrite RedNet PCIe Card

About RedNet:

Rednet is Focusrite's leading range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harness the power of Audinate's trusty Dante digital audio networking system. This system brings top-quality studio sound to any modern audio application. At its core, RedNet is very versatile almost zero latency audio distribution system that can be utilized for many purposes. These purposes include expanding I/O channel count, interface digital parts, and/or connect between Pro Tools|HD or MADI and the Dante audio network. Overall, the RedNet audio networking system functions with a trusted and time-tested, widely-compatible technology. It can also be linked with a large selection of other comapanies' Dante- compatible gear. Technically speaking, the RedNet interfaces perfroms amazingly. Modern, sleek and attractive designs add to their value.

RedNet MP8R Multi Channel Mic Pre Overview:

RedNet MP8R is an 8-channel remote-controlled microphone preamplifier and A/D for the Dante audio-over-IP network, created with live sound/recording and broadcast environments in mind. It is built for working situations where reliability is crucial, and features an Ethernet and power supply redundancy. The MP8R includes eight premium-quality remote-controlled mic preamps custom created for the RedNet line, and backed by thirty years of mic preamplifier research and development. Each preamp has a dual input impedance of 10k or 2.4k ohms, enabling flexibility when operating multiple mic pres in parallel. The device features eight auxiliary outputs with automatic DSP-based gain tracking for digital “splits”. After the mic pres are eight channels of Focusrite’s acclaimed high-precision A/D converters, operating at up to 192kHz/24-bit with minimum latency and providing an innovative dynamic range and overall performance. The MP8R features a tough, gritty, and robust exterior in addition to a top-quality internal build. The unit also offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor.

RedNet MP8R Multi Channel Mic Pre Key Features:

  • Built-in redundancy with dual power and network connections
  • Rugged roadworthy all-metal construction, high build quality, locking power and etherCON Ethernet connectors
  • Eight Focusrite remote-controlled preamps with enhanced input level capability, and dual input impedance to deliver maximum performance when one mic feeds single or   multiple pres
