Focusrite RedNet 2 - 16-channel A-D/D-A Ethernet Audio Interface

The Focusrite RedNet 2 is a 16-channel A-D / D-A, and Dante audio-interface that operates off a standard ethernet connection to your computer. You can also connect the RedNet 2 to the Focsurite RedNet PCIe card (sold separately) for use with Core Audio / ASIO digital audio workstations. The RedNet convertors are premium 24bit 192kHz quality, boasting a dynamic range of 199dB. There are 4 banks of DB-25 connectors on the rear panel, offering 16 analog inputs and 16 analog outputs.


    • Focusrite RedNet 2 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      RedNet 2 Overview:
      RedNet 2 adds 16 remote-controlled analogue channels in and out to your RedNet network and can be located anywhere you can run an Ethernet cable. Featuring Focusrite’s precision 24-bit A-D and D-A conversion for superb audio performance, it delivers 119dB dynamic range at sample rates up to 192kHz. The rear panel includes standard DB25 connectors for analogue patchbay or breakout cable interfacing.

      RedNet 2 can be used simply as a means of converting 16 channels of audio and delivering it some somewhere else on the network at near-zero latency. If you need to connect RedNet 2 to your computer there are three methods:
      The RedNet PCIe card for Core Audio and ASIO applications such as Logic and Nuendo
      RedNet 5 for Pro Tools HD, Pro Tools HDX and Pro Tools HD Native via DigiLink connectors
      Directly to your computer’s Ethernet port using a standard Ethernet cable (and “Dante Virtual Soundcard”)
      RedNet Control 2 software provides comprehensive remote control capability via a powerful tabbed browser-like graphic user interface, handling up to 600 devices.


      RedNet
      Studio quality sound meets digital audio networking…
      RedNet is Focusrite’s flagship range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinate’s tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system to bring studio quality sound to any modern audio application.
      Designed with multiple audio applications in mind – from Live Sound rigs to Multi-room Recording Studios, Houses of Worship, Audio Distribution Installations, Post Production environments and anything in-between – fundamentally RedNet is an extremely scalable, near zero latency audio distribution system that can be used to expand I/O channel count, interface digital components, and/or bridge between Pro Tools|HD or MADI and the Dante audio network.
      Incorporating Focusrite’s most advanced AD/DA conversion to date, rock-stable JetPLL clocking and premium multi-layered board circuitry, RedNet is no exception to the company’s philosophy that ‘Sound is Everything’. With every design detail meticulously engineered, RedNet is a step above its I/O competition, providing some of the most transparent and pristine audio quality available – with the added benefit of the systems’ revolutionary networking capabilities.


      Hosting RedNet
      How does RedNet interface with my computer?
      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’.
      Pro Tools HD:
      RedNet 5 is a bridge between Pro Tools HD systems and the RedNet network, delivering the level of latency and I/O count you would expect from your Pro Tools HD system, to the simplicity and convenience of Ethernet.
      Core Audio Applications:
      For Core Audio and ASIO applications such as Logic and Nuendo, the RedNet PCIe card can be fitted to Windows or Mac computers with a standard PCIe card slot. It delivers 128 channels I/O at 96kHz sampling, with three milliseconds latency at 96kHz*. A standard RJ45 Ethernet connector links your audio computer to the rest of the network via a standard GigE switch.
      Via your Ethernet port….
      Where ultra-low latency performance is less important, the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) software can be used to host the network from your computer’s built-in Ethernet port. This provides latency figures equivalent to Focusrite’s professional FireWire interfaces. The virtual driver can also be used in small-scale portable system based around a laptop.
