RedNet PCIe Card
For situations in which low-latency performance is critical, such as tracking, the RedNet PCIe card provides the best possible performance for your system. This dedicated card fits into a Windows or Mac computer with a standard PCIe card slot and delivers up to 128 channels I/O with under 3ms latency*. A standard RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connector links your audio computer to the rest of the network via a GigE switch.
Key Features and Performance:
128 channels in and 128 channels out
Compatible with any Dante network
Up to 192 kHz sample rate
Under 3ms analogue-to-analogue round-trip latency*
ASIO and Core Audio drivers
* Dependent on ASIO/Core Audio buffer size
What is RedNet
RedNet is Focusrite’s flagship range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinate’s tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system to bring studio quality sound to any modern audio application. Fundamentally RedNet is an extremely scalable, near zero latency audio distribution system that can be used to expand I/O channel count, interface digital components, and/or bridge between Pro Tools|HD or MADI and the Dante audio network.
OS X 10.7.x (Lion) or 10.8.x (Mountain Lion)
Minimum 2GB RAM
Please note the first generation Mac Pro (Original, 2006) is not supported
Windows 7 or Windows 8
Minimum 2GB RAM
It is recommended that PCs which are on our test grid are used. Focusrite cannot guarantee performance of RedNet PCIe in conjunction with PCs outside of this list.
KEY FEATURES AND PERFORMANCE
Enables ultra-low-latency performance in RedNet - less than 3ms latency at any sample rate*
128 inputs / 128 outputs at 44.1, 48 and 96kHz (64 I/O at 192kHz)
Supports high-quality 24-bit/192kHz audio
Compatible with most modern computers via a standard 4-lane PCI Express card slot
*Latency performance under 3ms assumes a DAW buffer setting of 32 samples or less.
