At AES today, Focusrite updated its RedNet Control software to handle up to 600 RedNet devices with up to 9600 audio channels operating on Dante-based IP audio systems.

RedNet Control 2.0 uses a tab-based navigation system, with up to 50 tabs displaying up to 12 devices each. The tabs are meant to be used by individual users to configure the software to manage very large numbers of devices in a way that makes sense based on their facilities' organizational structure.

The device list is searchable and various filters can be used to make different types of hardware easier to find. Device monitoring, metering and control has been improved in this version of the softare, and devices can be locked or unlocked from RedNet Control, the company said.

The new software version is being demo'd at AES and will be available as a free upgrade for all RedNet users beginning in December, the company said.


Also on display at AES is Focusrite's new Red 8Pre, which builds on the Red 4Pre announced at InfoComm earlier this year with eight mic pres and 64 ins x 64 outs (including 16 analog ins and 18 analog outs).
