Red 16Line is a 64-in/64-out Pro Tools | HD and dual Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with ultra-low latency A-D/D-A conversion, Red Evolution mic preamps, up to 121dB dynamic range, ultra-low round trip latency, and expansion over Ethernet for networked audio. Since Red 16Line provides both DigiLink connectors and Thunderbolt connections, it’s now easier than ever to switch from Pro Tools | HD to a second DAW, without the need to reconfigure option cards in the interface. Simply change the host mode either in the remote-control software, or on the device front panel and change DAWs in seconds.

High-performance audio converters with over 118dB dynamic range A/D and 121dB dynamic range D/A (A-weighted) have been expertly selected and calibrated to provide the best balance of sound quality, dynamic range and conversion latency in Focusrite’s best-quality audio interface. Red’s ultra-low round trip latency completely transforms your workflow. If you’re used to having to build two different mixes — one using input monitoring to overdub, the other using the DAW for playback — the good news is that now, one is enough. Build your mix on the DAW and use it whether you’re overdubbing, or playing back, with all your plug-ins in place, all the time.

Red 16Line features 16-line inputs on D-sub, coupled with 16 line outputs and two main monitor outputs. The two digitally controlled Red Evolution mic preamps provide up to 63dB of ultra-clean gain along with stereo linking, individual phantom power, high-pass filter, phase reverse and Air mode: the name Focusrite give to the sonic signature of the classic transformer ISA preamp. With a dual-port Dante card, you will be able to expand your studio over Ethernet for more channels at higher sample rates, anywhere in your network, at lower latency and lower cost.

  • Connect to Pro Tools | HD, Thunderbolt computers and Dante simultaneously without option cards.
  • High-performance audio conversion with over 118dB dynamic range A/D and 121dB dynamic range D/A (A-weighted)
  • Ultra-low round trip latency to track through plug-ins and record virtual instruments in real time

  • Two digitally controlled Red Evolution mic preamps with up to 63dB of ultra-clean gain, stereo linking, individual phantom power, high-pass filter and phase reverse
  • Air mode on the preamps, giving recordings the clarity of a transformer-based ISA.
  • Two Thunderbolt 3 ports as standard to connect additional Thunderbolt products.
  • Dual-port Dante card for more channels at higher sample rates
  • Three LCD displays for highly accurate level metering.
  • Two discrete high-fidelity headphone outputs
  • Connect multiple digital sources using word clock I/O and loop-sync I/O
  • Two instrument inputs on the front panel
  • AAX/AU/VST-compatible Red 2 and Red 3 EQ and compression plug-ins
