Focusrite Red Net 3
32 I/O digital interface for RedNet professional audio networking system
Focusrite Red Net 3
The Dante Advantage
Audinate's DanteTM technology provides the perfect infrastructure for RedNet, providing a robust and reliable network architecture with easily-sourced, standard components, most of which will already be familiar to audio engineering professionals. It delivers a guaranteed 128 input and 128 output channel architecture at 44.1, 48 and 96kHz or 64 I/O at 192kHz. Using an optional PCIe card, extremely low latency can be achieved, under three milliseconds at any sample rate. Interfaces can be remotely controlled from the host computer, and added or relocated easily. Dante allows interfaces to be located a significant distance away from the host computer, and thus placed in locations determined by requirement and not by technical limitation. A single audio network can span the largest facility – and in many cases the physical networking infrastructure will already be in place.
Dante also allows system components to be controlled remotely via a software application on the host computer or even via external hardware control surfaces. Interfaces can be installed anywhere on the network and hot-swapped: RedNet automatically recognises and configures them as soon as they appear.
The RedNet Range
RedNet interfaces can operate alongside any supported PC or Mac with an Ethernet port (including laptops), using Audinateʼs Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) driver, meaning portable RedNet rigs can be configured. However, Focusriteʼs RedNet PCIe card, which features its own, single Ethernet socket, is dedicated to communicating with the RedNet network. The technology on this card yields the extremely low latencies and high track count that makes RedNet the ultimate studio upgrade.
Scalable, up to 128 inputs and 128 outputs
Supporting even the most demanding studio environments, choose from four high quality audio interfaces and connect as many as you like to your RedNet network.
Pristine audio quality with low latency
RedNet stands up to the sonic demands of the professional studio with 120dB dynamic range and less than 3ms latency at any sample rate when using the RedNet PCIe card.
Robust and reliable networked audio system
Dante is a tried and tested audio networking standard, endorsed by companies like Yamaha, and by Britannia Row, who rely on it for major live events on a regular basis.
Professional networked audio system
With 24-bit operation at up to 192kHz sampling and JetPLLTM jitter-reduction technology, RedNet is a professional studio system supporting the needs of any studio.
Easiest studio configuration – ever
Interfaces can be hot-swapped anytime and controlled remotely via the included RedNet control software.
Supports any open DAW package
No need to spend hours learning a new platform – RedNet supports Pro Tools 9, Logic, Nuendo or any other open DAW running on Mac and Windows computers.
Key Features and Performance
* When running at 44.1 or 48kHz, ADAT input and output ports 5 – 8 are disabled
