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.
