Focusrite Red 8 Pre

Thunderbolt or Pro Tools/HD compatible audio interface with Dante network connection

The Focusrite Red 8Pre 64 In/64 Out Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface is a 64 in/64 out Thunderbolt 2 and Pro Tools HD audio interface with a 20Hz-35kHz frequency response and two 1/4" TS stereo jack inputs. The Red 8Pre features both Thunderbolt 2 connectivity and dual mini-DigiLink ports allowing you the best of both Core Audio and Pro Tools|HD workflows. A combination of low-latency conversion and driver technology allows real-time foldback mixes to be created in the DAW whilst you continue to use your native plug-ins.

Focusrite’s Red Evolution digitally-controlled mic preamps deliver a clear and honest sound with very low noise and plenty of gain available for the most-quiet of sources. They can be controlled from the front panel or remotely over Thunderbolt using Focusrite Control. Red 8Pre’s conversion achieves lightning fast performance, a dynamic range of 118dB A-D and 121dB D-A and a flat response to 35kHz.

Red 8Pre includes the new Focusrite Control software, providing a straightforward and intuitive way to set up mixes and monitoring, as well as controlling the mic pres, recalling settings, assigning stereo pairs, adjusting gain and enabling high-pass filtering and phantom power (and much more). In addition, Red 8Pre is packaged with Softube's Time and Tone Bundle, which consists of Softube’s professional quality plug-ins: Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor, TSAR-1R Reverb, Tube Delay and Saturation Knob.
