Mention the word Dante in the wrong circles and many people think of a bad Pierce Brosnan movie from the late 90s. However, in the high tech audio world, we now think of Audinate's Dante Audio Over IP solution and maybe the Focusrite RedNet range of high-end interfaces. Enter the new Tascam ML-16D and ML-32D Analogue to Dante converters with either 16 or 32 channels of A-D and D-A conversion respectively at up to 96KHz sample rate.
Our friends at Focusrite are very pleased to announce the new Focusrite Red 16 Line. Continuing the lineage of the Red4 and Red8 Pre units the Red16 Line offers 64-in and 64-out via Avid Mini-DigiLink for Pro Tools HD, HDX, HD Native and HD Thunderbolt Native and dual Thunderbolt 3.0 ports for ultra-low latency A-D/D-A conversion.
The team at Focusrite are very pleased to announce the new RedNet X2P, which they describe as a small, compact and robust 2x2 Dante audio interface. Could this be the Dante equipped box we have all been waiting for? Now there is no need to move 8 or 16 channels of I/O to your performer's location when all they are recording is a vocal on a single mic with a single set of headphones.
