Focusrite HD32R Overview

The RedNet HD32R 32-Channel Dante Networks Pro Tools | HD Bridge from Focusrite is a 1 RU, 19-inch rackmount Dante interface that allows Pro Tools|HD users direct access to the full benefits of the Dante digital audio networking system. This includes its very flexible network topology and high-quality audio interfaces. The Pro Tools system is connected to the HD32R via standard Mini DigiLink ports.

The HD32R utilizes dual Ethernet ports with the provided locking etherCON connectors, and several operating modes, including daisy-chaining and redundancy, which are confirmed by front-panel indicators. Two separate power supplies with fault detection capability are included, with separate power input sockets (with retaining clips) on the rear of the unit. Additionally, its power status is indicated both remotely and on the front panel.

The HD32R features a rugged, roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality. In addition, it offers a compact 1 RU rackmount form factor for a full 32 channels of I/O.

Focusrite's RedNet was the first to offer IP networked audio interfaces for recording studios, education, live sound, and broadcast workflows, combining suitable audio interfaces with the time-tested reliability of the Dante Ethernet-based audio networking system from Audinate. Dante has been in use in the live sound industry for years in exacting applications without missing a single sample.

Dante networking offers a powerful combination of features that make it particularly useful for any Pro Tools | HD production environment. Focusrite's well-respected DC-coupled mic preamplifiers and exacting digital conversion helps to ensure a very high audio quality I/O, while Dante allows it to interoperate fully with Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools|HDX.

Ethernet-based audio networking technology makes the need for complex, bulky and expensive analogue multi-way cables a thing of the past. Connected to Pro Tools|HD with RedNet HD32R, audio interfaces can be conveniently located anywhere an Ethernet port is available.

The HD32R acts as a 64-channel (32 in /32 out) digital break in/out box, operating in the same way as a standard interface, and supporting a wide range of Pro Tools | HDX and HD cards. Supported Pro Tools systems include Pro Tools | HDX, Pro Tools|HD Native, Pro Tools | HD Native Thunderbolt, and Pro Tools | HD TDM. Up to six HD32R modules can be used with a Pro Tools | HDX system and three with Pro Tools | HD, allowing the maximum channel count for either. Simply connect theHD32R to Pro Tools | HD with standard Mini DigiLink connectors. Furthermore, the 32-channel bridge allows the use of the low-latency performance of Pro Tools | HD cards in place of a RedNet PCIe card, bringing the full benefits of Dante audio-over IP networking and the RedNet product range to a Pro Tools | HD system. The entire range of Dante-compatible products including the RedNet analogue and digital interfaces can then be used with a Pro Tools | HD system, all connected via Ethernet cable.

From complex multiroom systems to single installations, Dante and RedNet offer the ability to create a sophisticated and comprehensive high-quality audio production environment around a standard Ethernet network, with HD32R providing the bridge to any Pro Tools | HD system. Assign any available Dante source or destination via HD32R and it appears in Pro Tools exactly as it would with any other Pro Tools-compatible interface, maintaining traditional Pro Tools workflows.

A premium bonus is the Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC channel-strip plug-in, a stellar digital emulation of the legendary and rare Focusrite Studio Console. Only 10 of the consoles were ever produced, but you can access its famed sound directly in your DAW.
