Gorgeous Mic Pre Line in and DI

The same Pre's ordered by George Martin to Rupert Neve for the last 4 Beatles recordings. Perfect sound in a flexible format. Solid in every way

Excellent sound and reliability

This box is a perfect start for a Dante system. I have tested Rednet 4 extensively over several networks using Dante Virtual Soundcard. As soon as it is setup properly it works flawlessly, even over a 10/100 network. You can be hundreds of feet away monitoring a recording without running more than a couple short cables. Overall the box is high quality in construction while still managing to be fairly lightweight. The Rednet 4 preamps/ADC are excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to use them even in the most demanding applications. On location the ability to use this as a stage box using a single ethernet cable to connect to a laptop is very convenient, if you've ever carried audio snakes around on a cart you know what I mean. Controlling the preamps is from the same laptop is icing on the cake. Rednet 4 has no hardware outputs. How is monitoring done with one or more Rednet 4 boxes connected by a network switch? The best way is to use a Dante output device on the network, like one of the other Rednet boxes or a Yamaha mixer with a Dante card. I suggest contacting Sweetwater, Focusrite, or Audinate to talk about your potential setup. Care must also be taken while selecting and configuring a network switch for the setup, Focusrite has suggested a few managed network switches that are reliable and I advise checking that first and making sure your switch is configured properly. Dante is the most flexible audio routing system on the market, and the Rednet implementation is very sophisticated. I highly recommended it!

Sweetwater Advice

Evan Mulvihill

What I love about using the Focusrite RedNet 4 in my studio is how easy it is to use! All the RedNets connect through ethernet cable, so there's no need for big bulky cables and snakes - and I can run hundreds of feet etherent cable without any signal loss! I can also remotely control the RedNet 4's gain structure from the control room. (Seriously, how cool is that!?) The cherry on top is its extreme transparency - it never colors the sound.
