Focusrite Pro Introduces RedNet Control 2.4

Focusrite has released RedNet Control 2.4, a free software update that adds Dante Domain Manager (DDM) and AES67/AES70 compatibility as well as an AES3 Kill Switch function, background mode and other enhancements to the RedNet network.

Focusrite said RedNet Control 2.4 makes all Focusrite Red audio interfaces, plus RedNet devices with Audinate Brooklyn 2, Ultimo and Ultimo X architecture compatible with Dante Domain Manager. Administrators of large networked audio systems can now assign the privilege structure of Dante Domain Manager to RedNet Control users.

RedNet Control 2.4 recognizes the four levels of system access granted within DDM: Site Administrator, Domain Administrator, Operator and Guest. As a result, users can be granted access only to the RedNet Control features necessary for their workflow.

Also new in RedNet Control 2.4 is AES3 Kill Switch control for RedNet D16 and RedNet D16R. Currently a RedNet D16R always sends information (a series of zeroes) on its AES3 outputs, making it impossible for downstream devices to distinguish between “mute” and “fault” status. With the new Kill Switch feature, users can set channel pairs to automatically cut the AES3 transmission from the D16R in certain conditions.

Another new feature in RedNet Control 2.4 is AES67 compatibility for RedNet X2P and RedNet AM2 Ultimo X interfaces. RedNet AM2 and RedNet X2P join RedNet and Red devices as AES67 compatible. This enables interoperability between Dante and different audio networking standards, including RAVENNA.
