Focusrite Pro's star product Red 16Line can interact with DAW through the Thunderbolt 3 interface, but it can also be used as a Pro Tools | HD audio interface, and can bring higher expansion value through the Dante audio network.
1 set of Red 16Line = 4 sets of HD I / O?
Red 16Line is connected to the Avid environment through two Digilink interfaces, which can be regarded as 4 HD I / O matrix layout in Protools. This means that at the same time you can get terrible 64-channel input and output capabilities.
RED Evolution Mike preamplifier
The Red 16Line audio interface has 16 linear analog inputs and outputs, which can be connected through a D-Sub interface, and the digital interface is connected through S / PDIF and ADAT. At the same time, it has two Focusrite Red Evolution microphone pre-amplifiers, a large 121dB dynamic range, independent 48V phantom power, and high-pass filtering and phase conversion functions. It can be said to be ingenious.
Focusrite also combines their "Air" technology, which can simulate the early Red series and ISA series through the input impedance and frequency response curve. You can imagine the value of the early Red series alone. Red 16Line is still very sincere. Mic is designed on the rear panel of the machine.
The front panel of the Red 16Line has some useful and convenient designs. The inputs of the two instruments and a clear display screen can control the input and output knobs, and can control the volume of the monitor and monitor headphones.
Focusrite Control and Dante control
The interface is controlled by Focusrite Control software, which can set the input and output routes, create monitoring settings, and adjust other settings such as sampling rate and clock. At the same time, you can control the input of the microphone front stage, the type of connected host, etc. At the same time, if you use Dante, you need to use Dante control software to control.
Good digital-to-analog conversion, less delay
Focusrite Pro believes that the digital-to-analog conversion of Red 16Line is good: the analog linearity is clean, objective, and low distortion gain. Low conversion loss. At the same time, Red 16Line has low latency. You can even record guitars and basses through a large amount of resource-consuming amplifier plug-ins, without feeling any uncomfortable latency.
Red 16Line can work at 192kHz and 24bit, and the lightning interface also has a very efficient performance.
