RedNet R1 is designed for professionals who need to adapt their audio configurations quickly to suit the ever-increasing demands of the studio environment, and interact with their audio system like never before. Inputs from one of eight channels (from 32 possible sources) can be mixed and routed to up to 12 monitor output channels, formatted from mono through to 7.1.4 surround, providing the flexibility to monitor in a range of common setups including Dolby Atmos® and other immersive audio workflows. Alternatively, completely custom setups of up to 12 outputs can be configured for bespoke speaker configurations.
RedNet R1 can be set up to control groups of outputs from the multitude of sources and destinations available to Red interface users. From Pro Tools™ | HD and other DAWs, analogue inputs and outputs, ADAT and S/PDIF connections, and from entire Dante® audio ecosystems, audio can be switched and summed cross platforms, simultaneously and interchangeably. Top-panel control includes level, reference level preset selection, dim, mute and a variety of solo modes. There's an A/B switch for switching between monitoring presets, and up to four fold-down presets allow fast switching for checking downmixes.
RedNet R1 also features Dante-enabled talkback, an internal mic preamp for connecting an external talkback mic, built-in microphone and a high-powered headphones output, so you can monitor audio inputs and outputs, and interact with talent and other users on the system. Up to four talkback destination groups are available when used with a Red interface (when used with other Dante devices, a single talkback group is available).
Two LCDs display highly accurate level metering of the outputs, sources and headphone outputs, and provide visual cues for navigating menus. RedNet Control software is used to quickly set up both simple and complex monitoring and routing configurations. Other features include a quarter-inch jack socket, which accepts a footswitch for talkback management, LFE muting and more. RedNet R1 can be powered via Ethernet to reduce cabling complexity (using the PoE standard), or by the supplied DC power supply.
