Focusrite Intros RedNet X2P Interface
Focusrite has debuted the RedNet X2P 2×2 Dante audio interface. The RedNet X2P features two Red Evolution mic pre-amplifiers, balanced line outputs and a stereo headphone amp. Housed in a compact form factor, X2P provides a remote I/O solution for Focusrite RedNet or other Dante audio-over-IP networks. X2P can be simply and quickly integrated into Dante-enabled broadcast, post production and music workflows, since power, audio and remote control are supplied using a single Ethernet cable. For on-air productions requiring additional remote mic pre-amps, X2P provides a quick, modular one cable solution.
The two digitally-controlled Red Evolution mic pre-amps provide clean gain along with stereo linking, individualy selectable phantom power, a high-pass filter and phase reverse. They also include Air mode, emulating the sound of Focusrite’s classic transformer-based mic preamps. The RedNet X2P provides audio conversion with over 118dB dynamic range. These converters have been expertly selected and calibrated to provide the best balance of sound quality, dynamic range and conversion latency.
RedNet X2P features a “more me” control, allowing the talent to mix the level of the local mic pre inputs at zero latency with the cue mix feed to the unit via the network inputs assigned to feed either the local line outputs or headphone amp. The unit can be mounted directly to a mic stand, keeping it out of the way and within reach.
Flexible remote control enables local control of mic pre-amp settings and output settings or both to be locked. Artists can adjust their headphone mix and level, safe in the knowledge that they cannot accidentally adjust the mic pre-amp gain.
Here are all the specs.
