Over the years Focusrite has captured a supportive fan base of producers and DJs thanks to their high quality interfaces at multiple price points. The latest addition to the family, the Red 4Pre looks to cater to musicians and engineers looking for a high end solution with lots of connectivity and low latency monitoring perfect as a high quality solution for recording on the road and in the studio.
The 58-in/64-out Red 4Pre includes Thunderbolt 2 connectivity for ridiculously low round-trip latency regardless of DAW. You can also drop the Red 4Pre immediately, directly and seamlessly into any Pro Tools | HD system, or use it with existing Avid® interfaces, thanks to its twin DigiLink™ connectors. Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports allow daisy-chaining of additional components such as hard drives and displays. Plus the Red 4Pre is network audio enabled right out of the box, with dual Ethernet ports for Dante audio-over-IP networking, letting you expand your recording capability over Ethernet for up to 64 additional channels anywhere on your network, with low latency – and lower cost. Additional Red or other Dante-compatible components can be connected to the Ethernet ports of the Red 4Pre to provide additional channels irrespective of the interface used to drive the Red 4Pre.
