RedNet 6 MADI Bridge Connects Two Worlds

MADI is widely used for large-scale digital audio systems such as audio consoles and conversion systems, allowing multiple channels to be carried along a single interface. RedNet 6 provides the link between your RedNet Ethernet-based audio system and any MADI / AES10 setup. RedNet 6 supports up to 64 channels of both coaxial and optical MADI interfaces and is completely bi-directional: use RedNets high quality interface products with your MADI system or MADI components with your RedNet system. RedNet 6 features an asynchronous sample rate converter (ASRC) on each input and output so you can interface between MADI and RedNet irrespective of the sample rate at which either system is operating. Connect your RedNet system to MADI-based digital consoles, computer cards, converters and much more. In addition to both coax and optical MADI interfaces, RedNet provides Word Clock in and out.

What is RedNet?

RedNet is Focusrites flagship range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinates tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system to bring studio quality sound to any modern audio application. Fundamentally RedNet is an extremely scalable, near zero latency audio distribution system that can be used to expand I/O channel count, interface digital components, and/or bridge between Pro Tools|HD or MADI and the Dante audio network.


Add MADI to RedNet or RedNet to MADI
RedNet 6 connects your MADI system and your RedNet system seamlessly together. Connect RedNet to digital mixing consoles, interfaces and cards that use MADI; or conversely, extend your MADI system with RedNets versatile, superb-quality audio interfaces and connectivity.

Coaxial and Optical
RedNet 6 supports both coax and optical interfaces connect simply to any MADI equipment

External Word Clock I/O for either RedNet or MADI
Slave either the RedNet systems or MADI streams to an external clock

Up to 64 MADI channels
RedNet 6 supports up to 64 channels of digital audio I/O at standard sample rates (44.1/48kHz) from your MADI system, 32 channels at 96kHz and 16 at 192kHz.

Asynchronous sample rates throughout
Each RedNet 6 input and output has asynchronous sample rate converters (ASRC) allowing MADI and RedNet systems to operate simultaneously at different sample rates.

Compact and effective
RedNet 6 is a simple 1U rack-mount module with the classic red aluminium faceplate.

Remote routing and control
RedNet Control software allows remote routing and control from your audio computer system via a software control panel no hardware patching required.
