In this video review for Production Expert, Pro Tools Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey takes a look at the new ML-32D from Tascam. A 32 channel Line Level I/O to Dante converter. James shows you around the unit, explains the connectivity and how he is using the ML-32D in his studio set up and then goes on to let you hear the unit in a short track featuring full drum kit, bass and lead guitar.
It was a little under 2 years ago, back in April 2016 that James first reviewed the Focusrite Red 4Pre and to say he was impressed and loved it would be an understatement. Little did he know then that the Red range would grow to include the Red 8Pre, reviewed in May 2017 and now the new Red 16Line the latest in the Focusrite Pro Red range.
Pro Tools Expert Audio over IP specialist Julian Rodgers looks at the Focusrite AM2 headphone amplifier. Whether as part of a RedNet system or as a high quality endpoint in a mixed Dante system simple things, if they are worth doing, are worth doing well.
The Focusrite Red 4Pre launched in March 2016 and I did 3 separate reviews on it. In this review I cover the similarities and differences between the Red 4 and Red 8Pre and also share how I am using it in my everyday work.
Cards on the table time - I've long been a fan of Genelec - I like the sound their monitors make, and personally feel that they translate well. However I am very aware that they're not to everyone's tastes, and I've experienced quite a few installations where they've been forced into speaker locations and acoustic environments that don't help them sound their best.
In this video (part 3 of 3) James Ivey from Pro Tools Expert takes a final look at the Focusrite Red 4Pre as a Dante interface. James shows how he configured the Dante Virtual Soundcard, RedNet Control, Dante Controller and Focusrite Control to route audio around his Mac Pro system.
