Studio Quality Sound Meets Digital Audio Networking
Leveraging the flexibility of Dante™, Focusrite’s audio-over-IP devices deliver a modular approach to building up your audio solution, whether for Post Production, Broadcast, Live Sound or the Recording Studio. The range includes the finest remote-controlled mic pres, best conversion and a wide selection of PC interfacing options.
RedNet interfaces offer a selection of dedicated audio-over-IP interfaces including MADI, AES3, analogue, remote mic pres, and include options for redundant power supplies and network connections. Red interfaces offer an all-in-one audio solution including 32×32 of Dante I/O combined with Pro Tools | HD™ connectivity and the latest Thunderbolt interfacing technology. Many of our interfaces are also AES67 compliant; please visit a product page for further information.
All of the audio-over-IP devices are compatible with a standard layer-3 IP network; in fact it’s likely that nearly every facility already has a compatible infrastructure. Just add Ethernet cable and a network switch to build up your audio network. Talk to our presale team today to see what your facility needs to get up and running on Dante.
Sound and Quality that you can trust
Since designing the original Mbox for Pro Tools | LE, Focusrite has been a market leader in audio interface design. Their approach to audio interface design is summarised with “Better, faster and easier”. We believe that audio-quality should be effortlessly excellent, latency should be kept to a minimum, and that ultimately it should be easy to achieve the results you demand.
The Red range offers the ultimate in digital conversion, remote-controlled mic pres and built-in monitor controls coupled with very low latency Pro Tools | HD™, Thunderbolt™ and Dante interface technology. With very low noise, low distortion and ultra-linear design, the Red Evolution mic pres will give extremely accurate representation of the original acoustic performance being recorded. Our low-latency, highly-reliable drivers provide seamless integration with many DAWs while the DigiLink Mini ports allow connection directly to Pro Tools | HDX, Pro Tools | HD native and even older Pro Tools | HD TDM systems.
The Focusrite RedNet PCIe and Pro Tools | HD interfaces provide the simplest option for integrating Dante audio-over-IP networks with the digital audio workstation. Again offering very low latency and rock-stable driver performance, RedNet interfaces are fully remote controlled across the network.
The ISA Range
Since 1985, Focusrite has been a name synonymous with no-compromise mic pres following the creation of the ISA 110 for Sir George Martin’s Neve console at Air Studios. The legacy of the original ISA 110 lives on today, not only in the ISA range itself, but also in every mic pre we design.
Standing for ‘Input Signal Amplifier’, the ISA range was born out of the original Focusrite Forte console of the late 80’s, and later the Focusrite Studio Console. The core modules from these consoles live on with Focusrite’s current range of ISA products, which have in themselves also become recording classics, and the choice of the world’s finest producers and engineers. All ISA products use the Lundahl LL1538 input transformer and a custom Zobel network, both of which contribute to their sought-after sound.
