Description

RedNet MP8R is an 8-channel remote-controlled microphone preamplifier and A/D for the Dante audio-over-IP network, designed specifically for the live sound/recording and broadcast environments, and other workflows where reliability is paramount, with Ethernet and power supply redundancy. The MP8R features eight high-quality remote-controlled mic preamps developed specifically for the RedNet range, and backed by thirty years of mic preamplifier development. Each preamp has a dual input impedance of 10k or 2.4k ohms, allowing flexibility when running multiple mic pres in parallel. The device includes eight auxiliary outputs with automatic DSP-based gain tracking for digital “splits”. Following the mic pres are eight channels of Focusrite’s legendary high-precision A/D converters, operating at up to 192kHz/24-bit with minimum latency and offering class-leading dynamic range and overall performance. The MP8R features a rugged, roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality. In addition, the unit offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor.

Features:

  • Built-in redundancy with dual power and network connections
  • Rugged roadworthy all-metal construction, high build quality, locking power and etherCON Ethernet connectors
  • Eight Focusrite remote-controlled preamps with enhanced input level capability, and dual input impedance to deliver maximum performance when one mic feeds single or multiple pres
  • Two outputs from each preamp: one direct and the other automatically gain-compensated to deliver a constant level
  • 20dB pad, HPF and polarity inversion per input
  • Operate locally, or remotely via RedNet Control software, Pro Tools, MIDI or OCA (Open Control Architecture – available 2015 via firmware update)
  • Precision low-latency conversion at up to 24-bit/192kHz, with best-in-class dynamic range and overall audio quality
  • 6-segment LED level meters; OLED display indicates input gain and system information
  • Compact 1U form factor
  • Full interoperability with other Dante products and networks

Red, RedNet, and ISA customers get a free plug-in from Focusrite and Brainworx!
Brainworx bx_console Focusrite recreates the analogue signal paths of Focusrite’s revered ISA 110 and ISA 130 modules which were a part of the Focusrite Studio Console.
