Focusrite RedNet R1
The Focusrite RedNet R1 is a versatile studio-grade desktop remote controller for Focusrite Red audio interfaces, designed to enhance and perfect your workflow. When combined with a Red interface the RedNet R1 gives you complete control of your monitor selection, source selection and offers you Dante, Pro Tools | HD and Thunderbolt connectivity. The RedNet R1 can be used to manage remote-controllable mic preamps on your Focusrite Red interfaces so you can keep them stocked in the rack and therefore work in a decluttered, ergonomic studio environment.
Unlimited Mix and Monitor Capabilities
When the RedNet R1 is connected to a Red interface you’ll have the ability to select inputs from one or more of eight available source groups, each comprising of up to 12 channels, to a maximum of 32 total channels. The sources are selected via the front panel or set up using the included RedNet Control application for PC and Mac systems. You’ll be able to mix and monitor in Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio using any combination of the selected eight source groups, in formats that range from mono through to 12-channel audio and other 7.1.4 immersive formats.
The Focusrite RedNet R1 features Dante-enabled talkback with a built-in microphone, plus an internal mic preamp for connecting an external microphone, with high-powered headphone output so you can monitor audio inputs and outputs plus interact with talent in another location. A total of up to 4 talkback destination groups are available when used with a Red interface (when used with other Dante devices, a single talkback group is available). Additionally, there is also a headphone output that allows you to isolate sources and audition them before playing them on your monitors.
Different audio formats at the touch of a button
When the RedNet R1 is combined with Red interfaces there is support for up to four monitoring outputs, meaning you can listen to your mix in different audio formats at the touch of a button. Easily fold-down mixes to different formats via the eight available output buttons and always maintain a smooth workflow while working with multiple surround formats.
Red Range Mic Preamp Control
The RedNet R1 enables you to have full control of your Red range mic preamps from the convenience of one location, thus improving speed and workflow. Other features include a footswitch input on a quarter-inch jack, for talkback management, LFE muting and more. Lastly, the Focusrite RedNet R1 can be powered via Ethernet to reduce cable complexity in the studio (using the PoE standard) or by the included DC power supply.
