Description

About Focusrite Pro Red 16Line Thunderbolt Audio Interface

4×64 All-In-One Interface, 32×32 Dante I/O

Red 16Line is a 64-in/64-out Pro Tools | HD and dual Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with ultra-low latency A-D/D-A conversion, Red Evolution mic preamps, up to 121dB dynamic range, ultra-low round trip latency, and expansion over Ethernet for networked audio. Since Focusrite Pro Red 16Line thunderbolt audio interface provides both DigiLink™ connectors and Thunderbolt connections, it’s now easier than ever to switch from Pro Tools | HD to a second DAW, without the need to reconfigure option cards in the interface. Simply change the host mode either in the remote control software, or on the device front panel and change DAWs in seconds.

The Easiest Way To Work In Pro Tools | HD™ And A Second DAW

Since Focusrite Pro Red 16Line thunderbolt audio interface provides both DigiLink™ connectors and Thunderbolt™ connections, it’s now easier than ever to switch from Pro Tools | HD™ to a second DAW, without the need to reconfigure option cards in the interface. Simply change the host mode either in the remote control software, or on the device front panel and change DAWs in seconds.

Our Best Conversion

High-performance audio conversion with over 118dB dynamic range A-D and 121dB dynamic range D-A (A-weighted). These converters have been expertly selected and calibrated to provide the best balance of sound quality, dynamic range and conversion latency in our best-quality audio interface.

Revolutionise Your Workflow

Red’s ultra-low round trip latency completely transforms your workflow. If you’re used to having to build two different mixes – one using input monitoring to overdub, the other using the DAW for playback – the good news is that now, one is enough. Build your mix on the DAW and use it whether you’re overdubbing (monitoring the input you’re recording with the Focusrite Control software mixer) or playing back, with all your plug-ins in place, all the time.

Extensive Analogue I/O

Focusrite Pro Red 16Line thunderbolt audio interface features 16 line inputs on D-sub, coupled with 16 line outputs and two main monitor outputs.

Two Of Our Best Preamps

The two digitally-controlled Red Evolution mic preamps provide up to 63dB of ultra-clean gain along with stereo linking, individual phantom power, high-pass filter, phase reverse and Air mode: the name we give to the sonic signature of the classic transformer ISA preamp.

Networked Audio-Enabled Out Of The Box

With dual-port Dante™ connectivity, you will be able to expand your studio over Ethernet for more channels at higher sample rates, anywhere in your network, at lower latency and lower cost.

Software Mixer With Hardware-Focused Workflow

Focusrite Control is our software mixer designed primarily for ease of use in quickly setting up both simple and complex monitoring and routing configurations, together with the ability to control your preamps remotely.

The Sound Of Red Across Your Mix

Every Red interface comes with our Red 2 and Red 3 EQ and compression plug-ins. AAX/AU/VST-compatible, these plug-ins faithfully reproduce the sonic qualities of the original hardware, allowing you to take advantage of the classic Red sound – the sound of professional recording studios all over the world – across your entire mix.
