American Mobile Expands Its Focusrite RedNet Arsenal

Bookmark and Share
American Mobile has standardized its systems with Focusrite’s RedNet as the signal-transport backbone, deployed for remote music production for live broadcast and used extensively for events and festivals from Coachella to Bonnaroo.

Los Angeles, CA – Standard-setting remote production company American Mobile has further expanded its arsenal of tools from Focusrite’s RedNet range of Dante™-networked audio converters and interfaces, acting as the signal-transport backbone of its portable systems. Last year, American Mobile invested in its first RedNet hardware to eliminate long analog cable runs from stage. This lightened the travel load while improving quality with renowned Focusrite mic pre’s onstage digitally interfaced with American Mobile’s digital consoles and DAW systems. American Mobile has now configured three identical systems for remote use.

Their systems have seen use at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Coachella, Stagecoach, and Bonnaroo. The racks can also be combined as needed for shows with larger numbers of inputs. American Mobile Chief Engineer and owner Chris Shepard said the systems “allow us a lot of channel count, quick connectivity, and also a really low noise floor.”

In addition to or in combination with the stage racks, American Mobile deploys small racks equipped with the Focusrite Red 8Pre 64-In / 64-Out Thunderbolt™ 2 and Pro Tools | HD™ compatible audio interface, featuring eight Red Evolution mic pres and 32x32 Dante audio-over-IP connectivity. “The [Red] 8Pre connects to everything – it can be a very small, compact engine, and allow us to expand,” said Shepard. The setups include Pro Tools on a laptop, the Red 8Pre, additional preamps as needed, and the Focusrite RedNet AM2 two-channel headphone/line out interface. “You can’t have enough of the AM2s” said Shepard, who relies on the units to provide “super-simple, fast and stealthy” feeds when the inevitable requests are made at live events.

Shepard says the Focusrite RedNet systems are future-friendly: “While the computers and a lot of the things that these units connect to with Dante are always changing, the Focusrite hardware and the Dante protocol are fantastic. It really opens your eyes to a lot of different connectivity, and so I think we’re still tip of the iceberg on what Dante can do. American Mobile has made a good long-term investment.”

American Mobile Focusrite gear application list:

• Three identical stage racks featuring Focusrite RedNet interfaces. Each of the stage racks houses eight RedNet MP8R eight-channel mic pre and A/D converters, yielding 64 channels of analog to Dante interface. The racks also have a RedNet D64R 64-channel MADI bridge for integration with live consoles on stage, HD32R Pro Tools® HD bridges, and A8R’s are on the network at the mixing end.

• Smaller racks equipped with Focusrite Red 8Pre 64-In / 64-Out Thunderbolt™ 2 and Pro Tools|HD™ compatible audio interface

• Focusrite RedNet AM2 two-channel headphone/line out interface to provide no-fuss feeds to other parties at live events
