(Email for D.O’B. Sound Pro Price) 

8-channel remote-controlled mic pre with dual PSUs

RedNet MP8R is a 1U, eight-channel remote-controlled mic pre and A-D interface for any Dante audio-over-IP network. Featuring network and power supply redundancy, RedNet MP8R is the ideal choice for providing mic pres in many critical-path applications, whether in Post Production, Broadcast, Live Sound or the Recording Studio.

RedNet MP8R was designed in direct response to requests from clients in Live Sound and Broadcast looking for a high-quality remote controlled mic pre coupled with high performance A-D conversion. The result is a preamp with high dynamic range, flat frequency response, and excellent common-mode gain performance. The unique automatic gain compensation feature allows for a variety of flexible workflows; each mic pre feeds a pair of network transmitters, – one directly fed by the mic pre, the other fed through automatically compensated DSP – making mic pre sharing very simple. Front panel level indication is provided through 6-segment LED meters, while an OLED display indicates input gain and other system information.

Amazing mic preamps designed for live performance and broadcast

Focusrite went back to the drawing board with the RedNet MP8R to create an amazing set of preamps, now with up to +28dBu input level, -20dB pad, phase invert, high/low impedance modes, and even better common mode rejection. With plenty of headroom, virtually no noise, and well-balanced response across the entire gain range, the RedNet MP8R exceeds the expectations of live sound engineers.

Easy signal splits with DSP gain tracking

While the RedNet MP8R provides eight stellar mic inputs for your live sound system, it actually shows up as a 16-channel source on your Dante network. Each mic input is split into two - one direct feed that responds to that channel's gain control, and a second feed with DSP gain tracking. The DSP maintains a consistent output level for the second signal, irrespective of the analog mic gain setting. It's an easy way to send a high-quality audio split to a second engineer for monitor mixing or broadcast.

Convenient remote control via the RedNet network

Because you'll be using the RedNet MP8R as a component of a large-scale system, Focusrite makes it easy for you to control and re-route signals via a simple software control panel. No matter where you are in your facility, if you have access to the RedNet network from your computer you'll have complete control over every RedNet device connected to that network.
