I hate the words “solution” and “solutions” in this context and enjoy the Private Eye column that pokes gentle fun at brands that use these words to try and sound important. In the case of the Focusrite RedNet system though, it truly is a solution. It solves a problem.

Let’s say you have a studio with two control rooms and two live rooms. Currently, you have large multicores and wall-boxes linking live room 1 with control room 1, and live room 2 with control room 2. What do you do when you want to track the grand piano that is in studio 1 into control room 2?

Or maybe you want to get that unique ambiance of recording in the stairwell, or the auditorium in another part of the building? Wouldn’t things be much simpler if you could just open a window on your computer and repatch the preamps from studio 1 into your control room of choice with a couple of mouse clicks?

What about recording in that other space? Imagine just taking your mobile rack and plugging it in to the building’s ethernet system with a single ethernet cable, and having all those inputs available back in the control room.

With RedNet, all that, and more, is possible.

We should probably say at this point that it’s not just about the flexibility of the routing. The Focusrite RedNet series features the most impressive preamp and conversion technology that Focusrite has ever assembled!

Oh, and did we say latencies as low as 150 μs?

Focusrite RedNet driving sessions and performances

Sitting here at my desk in a writer’s frame of mind, it’s harder to come with examples of how RedNet can be used, but when you’re in the studio, recording on location or engineering live sessions (particularly ones that involve carry spectacularly heavy stage-boxes and multicores, wouldn’t it be easier with a single length of CAT6?) and you quickly come across all those instances where flexible audio routing would be a time, money or effort saver!

With that said, here are a few examples – from studio, to live, to education – to get you thinking about how it can make your audio life, not only more straightforward, but also lift it up a level…
