New interface features two Red Evolution mic pre’s, stereo line outs and a stereo headphone amplifier, allowing quick I/O and monitoring expansion of Focusrite RedNet or other Dante systems.

Focusrite is further expanding its RedNet range with the X2P 2x2 Dante audio interface.

The compact and robust RedNet X2P features two Red Evolution mic pre’s, stereo line outs and a stereo headphone amplifier, allowing quick I/O and monitoring expansion of Focusrite RedNet or other Dante AoIP systems.

Power, audio and remote control are supplied using a single Ethernet cable, while a local input mixer allows “more me” monitoring control and a control lockout ensures settings remain unchanged when used remotely.

The two digitally-controlled Red Evolution mic pre’s provide ‘ultra-clean’ gain along with stereo linking, individually selectable phantom power, a high-pass filter and phase reverse. They also include Air mode, emulating the sound of Focusrite’s classic transformer-based mic preamps. The RedNet X2P provides high-performance audio conversion with over 118dB dynamic range.

The interface features a crossfader to enable level control of the local inputs versus network inputs assigned to feed either the line outputs or the headphone outputs. It can also be mounted directly to a mic stand.

The X2P announcement follows the company’s recent release of the Red 16Line 64-in/out audio interface, which offers Pro Tools HD and dual Thunderbolt 3 support.
