Focusrite RedNet MP8R 8 Channel 24/192 Mic Pre Dante Interface with Redundant Network & Power

 The RedNet MP8R designed by Focusrite is an eight-channel remote-controlled microphone preamplifier and A/D for the Dante audio-over-IP network. The unit is offering a wealth of features that is making it particularly applicable to the live sound/recording and broadcast environments, and other workflows where reliability is paramount. This Focusrite’s MP8R eight-channel microphone preamplifier was developed from the RedNet four-studio remote-controlled microphone preamp and integrated enhancement from the considerable input of leading live sound practitioners throughout its development.  

It is provided with the dual ethernet ports with locking etherCON connectors, with several operating modes including daisy-chaining and redundancy confirmed by front-panel indicators. 2-separate power supplies with fault detection capability are included, with separate power input sockets (with retaining clips) on the rear of the unit. The state of each power supply is indicated both remotely and on the front panel.

 The MP8R is featured with a rugged, roadworthy exterior and internal build quality. Additionally, the unit is offered with a compact 1U rack-mount form factor.

  • Built-in redundancy with dual power and network connections
  • Rugged roadworthy all-metal construction, high build quality, locking power and etherCON Ethernet connectors
  • Eight Focusrite remote-controlled preamps with enhanced input level capability, and dual input impedance to deliver maximum performance when one mic feeds single or multiple pres
  • Two outputs from each preamp: one direct and the other automatically gain-compensated to deliver a constant level
  • 20 dB pad, HPF, and polarity inversion per input
  • Operate locally, or remotely via RedNet Control software, Pro Tools, MIDI, or OCA (Open Control Architecture - available via firmware update)
  • Precision low-latency conversion at up to 24-bit/192 kHz, with a large dynamic range and high-quality audio
  • 6-segment LED level meters; OLED display indicates input gain and system information/li>
  • Compact 1U form factor
  • Total interoperability with other Dante products and networks
