Focusrite Red 4Pre

Focusrite has launched the 58-input/64-output Thunderbolt Red 4Pre recording interface.

The unit’s four Red Evolution preamps offer -129dB EIN and 63dB of gain with software recall of settings and stereo linking, plus configuration of HPF, polarity invert and individual phantom power. The preamps include Focusrite’s Air effect, recreating the character of the transformer-based mic preamps in the ISA range. Red 4Pre also includes high-headroom instrument inputs, instantly accessible from the front panel.

The Red 4Pre’s conversion system features ‘parallel path summing’, where two matched converters are run in parallel to increase the signal-to-noise ratio. They operate at up to 192kHz, 24-bit, sampling with a dynamic range of 118dB (AD)/12dB (DA). The Red 4Pre delivers ≤0.0009% THD+Noise and a frequency response flat from 20Hz to 35kHz (±0.25dB) or better.

Red 4PreDual Thunderbolt 2 ports connect to any DAW while allowing daisy-chaining of drives and displays. Low round-trip latency permits recording with plug-ins in real-time and simplifies workflow, while dual DigiLink ports connect the Red 4Pre directly to any Pro Tools HD system. In addition, Red 4Pre features built-in Dante network audio connectivity – the dual Ethernet ports can be used to connect any Dante-compatible product, adding up to 64 channels via Ethernet wherever there’s an Ethernet network.
