J-Felix Rednet Recording Day

We invited special guest; J-Felix (Tru-Thoughts) to spend a day recording at Northbrook’s brand new studio facility. Focusrite also came down to watch as the new Rednet system was put through its paces, as one band played whilst being captured in various studios and software platforms around the department.

The Rednet system allows multiple studios to ‘dial-in’ to a live room and record the band; students recorded the band using a variety of DAWs such as Logic, Pro Tools and Ableton right across the department, all at the same time with no latency. The brand new network based audio system performed flawlessly with  20 computers all recording at the same time.

New Focusrite Rednet System

We have just installed a brand new set of audio interfaces; Focusrite’s RedNet system. It is an upgrade from our old ProTools HD 192 intefaces and brings network audio to Northbrook for the first time. The system allows any control room to connect to any live room via ethernet in a simple control panel app. We will soon be able to have one band playing in a live room and have students in multiple control rooms recording them.

The system features extremely low latency and extremely high track counts, and puts students in control of state-of-the-art recording facilities.
