Thanks to its flexibility, Focusrite's RedNet technology is being implemented in an amazingly diverse range of applications. From single-unit laptop recording setups to multi-room studio environments, RedNet is a great-sounding, hassle-free and incredibly versatile audio interface system. One of the most innovative RedNet applications is as part of the digital audio systems that run most front-of-house (FOH) PA systems on large tours the world over. One such implementation is in the FOH rig of The Killers' world tour, where a RedNet 1 eight-channel A-D/D-A and RedNet 4 eight-channel mic preamp perform a number of duties for Systems Engineer Philip Reynolds.

The University of Derby's Arts, Design and Technology departments are home to a complete sound studio complex that has recently been completely refurbished and re-equipped -- and includes the world's first Focusrite RedNet installation. RedNet is a brand-new audio system that combines Focusrite's legendary experience in mic preamp and digital interface design with the tried and tested Dante system for transferring digital audio via a standard Gigabit Ethernet network. In this video, we talk to the University of Derby's Popular Music Production Subject Leader, John Crossley, about the University's use of RedNet and his experiences with the system.

Two-time Grammy award nominee, Producer/Engineer and Educator, Jay Henry recently specified two RedNet 5 HD interfaces for his course's Pro Tools|HD system, coupled with three RedNet 2 16-channel analogue I/O interfaces for Southwestern College's main recording and satellite mixing rooms.

The Cat6 cables built into the walls of the studio take the signal into the control room and into a switch, where the connected RedNet 5 bridges the Dante flows from RedNet to Pro Tools|HD, alongside 3 Digidesign 192 I/O interfaces (these are all synced to the house clock). The RedNet Control software interface is set up on the Mac Pro to control the routing, controlling and configuring RedNet interfaces and then, as the band played, to control the gain of the preamps, reference level, clock source, master clock, and sample rate.

Multi-GRAMMY Award winning Mix Engineer, Chris Lord-Alge chooses RedNet as the sole AD-DA convertors sitting between his Pro Tools|HD™ system and SSL console.
