64X64 ALL-IN-ONE INTERFACE, 32X32 DANTE I/O

 

Red 16Line is a 64-in/64-out Pro Tools | HD and dual Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with ultra-low latency A-D/D-A conversion, Red Evolution mic preamps, up to 121dB dynamic range, ultra-low round trip latency, and expansion over Ethernet for networked audio. Since Red 16Line provides both DigiLink™ connectors and Thunderbolt connections, it's now easier than ever to switch from Pro Tools | HD to a second DAW, without the need to reconfigure option cards in the interface. Simply change the host mode either in the RedNet Control software, or on the device front panel and change DAWs in seconds.

The Easiest Way To Work In Pro Tools | HD™ And A Second DAW

Since Red 16Line provides both DigiLink™ connectors and Thunderbolt™ connections, it's now easier than ever to switch from Pro Tools | HD™ to a second DAW, without the need to reconfigure option cards in the interface. Simply change the host mode either in the RedNet Control software, or on the device front panel and change DAWs in seconds.

 

Our Best Conversion

High-performance audio conversion with over 118dB dynamic range A-D and 121dB dynamic range D-A (A-weighted). These converters have been expertly selected and calibrated to provide the best balance of sound quality, dynamic range and conversion latency in our best-quality audio interface.

 

Revolutionise Your Workflow

Red's ultra-low round trip latency completely transforms your workflow. If you're used to having to build two different mixes – one using input monitoring to overdub, the other using the DAW for playback – the good news is that now, one is enough. Build your mix on the DAW and use it whether you're overdubbing (monitoring the input you're recording with the RedNet Control software mixer) or playing back, with all your plug-ins in place, all the time.

 

 

 

 

Extensive Analogue I/O

Red 16Line features 16 line inputs on D-sub, coupled with 16 line outputs and two main monitor outputs.

 

Two Of Our Best Preamps

The two digitally-controlled Red Evolution mic preamps provide up to 63dB of ultra-clean gain along with stereo linking, individual phantom power, high-pass filter, phase reverse and Air mode: the name we give to the sonic signature of the classic transformer ISA preamp.

 

Networked Audio-Enabled Out Of The Box

With dual-port Dante™ connectivity, you will be able to expand your studio over Ethernet for more channels at higher sample rates, anywhere in your network, at lower latency and lower cost.

 

 

 

 

Software Mixer With Hardware-Focused Workflow

RedNet Control is our software mixer designed primarily for ease of use in quickly setting up both simple and complex monitoring and routing configurations, together with the ability to control your preamps remotely.

 

The Sound Of Red Across Your Mix

Every Red interface comes with our Red 2 and Red 3 EQ and compression plug-ins. AAX/AU/VST-compatible, these plug-ins faithfully reproduce the sonic qualities of the original hardware, allowing you to take advantage of the classic Red sound – the sound of professional recording studios all over the world – across your entire mix.

 

The Focusrite Studio Console Reborn In Your DAW

The Focusrite Studio Console defined countless hits of the 80s and 90s, thanks in large part to its ISA 110 Equaliser and ISA 130 Dynamics Modules. Brainworx's bx_console Focusrite plug-in brings you stunningly accurate emulations of both in a single plug-in, perfectly capturing the famously warm, open sound of two of the most revered pieces of studio hardware ever made.
