The shift to "in-the-box" workflows has reduced our reliance on analogue consoles. As a result the requirement for mic pres, monitoring control and cue mixes has moved to a combination of the DAW and the audio interface. However not everyone uses the same audio workstation software, with many adopting dedicated DSP options for mixing such as Pro Tools | HD while others use a Core Audio-based application such as Logic or Pro Tools software for tracking and composing tasks.
Our 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 built-in Dante connectivity allows the easy addition of extra mic pres, analogue I/O or indeed the integration with an existing audio-over-IP network. Our RedNet range provides a modular approach to building up the interfacing and high-channel count needs within your facility, with each remote-controlled device dedicated to a specific I/O type, all interconnected using Dante.
Utilising the flexibility of audio-over-IP, the reliance on expensive, bulky analogue multicore is reduced, while additional recording spaces can be added anywhere there is a network connection. For shared facilities it's easy to have a set of mic pres in the common live room that can be routed to, and controlled from any control room. Additional mic pres can be easily added, while foldback can be provided to performers with a dedicated feed anywhere it's needed; just add Ethernet cable.
