Audio networking has been happeing in the field for several years, the loss of massive, heavy multicore has not been mourned by many who've have to lug it around the world. In the studio however, its not so prevelant. Focusrite aim to change all this by introducing RedNet, using the lovely redness of the  Focusrite Red range, and the Dante compatible ethernet transport to shift up to 128 channels of audio about the building. The advantage is again the lack of expensive cable runs - you can use standard CAT5e cable, which costs next to nothing by comparisson to quality multicore cable.


Comprising several units plus a PCIe controller card, it will be coming onine in the Summer - check the Focusrite site for more.

I have no idea what this is.. is this something that will replace my fireface 400? I´m not sure what this network sound card thing is about+ is it better than firewire? not that i´m unhappy with my fireface, just trying to figure out what this is.. anyone can help me out! cheers.

This thing is for pro big recording studios. that needs to reconfigure their in's and out's really quickly and needs to transfer audio from room to room. Ehternet cable is infinitely cheeper than an high quality audio snake.

If you records in your bedroom, your fireface is more than enough. If you need records 80 channel of audio from one room to the other, well the Rednet will reduce the cost by using the ethernet cable rather than an audio snake.
