New version of the RedNet Control Software

The latest release of RedNet Control Beta v1.3b3, the software package to configure and remote-control a RedNet system, provides a number of enhancements, including extensive MIDI control capabilities, Thunderbolt compatibility for the PCIe Card, and improved metering for the RedNet 4.

  • MIDI Control – RedNet Control is now capable of sending and receiving MIDI, allowing control of the RedNet 4 mic preamp from many hardware or software controllers including Pro Tools. Two profiles exist in the software. Firstly a dedicated SysEx protocol allowing control from dozens of digital mixing consoles or iPad apps such as MIDI Designer. Secondly an implementation of the Avid PRE CC protocol allows control from any programmable CC capable MIDI controller or directly from the Pro Tools mixer and thus many Pro Tools control surfaces including Command 8, C|24, ICON, the new S6 and more.
  • Thunderbolt Compatibility – The new RedNet Control release provides compatibility between the RedNet PCIe Card and Thunderbolt PCIe chassis systems under Mac OS X.
  • Improved Metering for RedNet 4 – RedNet 4 now includes improved metering to IEC 268-18:1995 specifications, offering better readability and longer decay time.
