New York, NY (October 13, 2017)—Focusrite has unveiled its Red 16Line, a 64-in/64-out Pro Tools | HD and dual Thunderbolt 3 audio interface.
The unit offers low latency A-D/D-A conversion, with audio converters providing 118 dB dynamic range A/D and 121 dB dynamic range D/A (A-weighted). Also on board are Red Evolution mic preamps, reportedly up to 121 dB dynamic range and expansion over Ethernet for networked audio.
Providing both DigiLink connectors and Thunderbolt connections, users can switch from Pro Tools | HD to other audio applications without the need to reconfigure option cards in the interface, changing its host mode via software or the device front panel.
Red 16Line features 16 line inputs on D-sub, coupled with 16 line outputs and two main monitor outputs, and the outputs can be ganged for surround monitoring applications. The two digitally-controlled Red Evolution mic preamps provide up to 63 dB of gain along with stereo linking, individual phantom power, high-pass filter, phase reverse and Air mode.
