Red 8 pre with PT hd native

Anyone set this up before.

Im going visiting a studio next week and i am just wondering how long it takes to set up. and is there any quirks with the setup. I wont have much time.

i will be carrying red8 and studio is providing PT HD native.

i will be using the 8 on board pre's and 2 other units

Does this setup still require focusrite control software

Thanks

to be safe yes it does. Just take a laptop with you with focusrite control on it.

most of the functions you can control from the hardware itself but not all. a little cumbersome but it can be done once you get use to it. You have the option of pre configuring it before you go to the session but i personally would not risk it.

The Red 8 Pre uses the Rednet software now.

A little off topic but when i purchased the device a few years ago i was told remote control functionality could not be implemented due to hardware restrictions... ill deff check it out though.


If i plug into a hd native. I thought i should only need the preamp control and everything else would be 1 to 1 from the devices.

do ether of you use this with HD Native ???

Thanks for your responses

I use Red 8pre with HDX and HDN. Happy to answer any questions.

It’s super easy and rock solid. I recommend setting everything up in Rednet Control beforehand. There aren’t really any quirks but there are a lot of options.

I’d also setup a template beforehand with the i/o setup the way you like it.

Even if you are using digilink as your primary connection, have a thunderbolt cable hooked up as well. You still need that for setup control and midi “pre” control.

Out of the box it is 1 to 1 but it’s very flexible and you can do some very cool routing tricks. Sit with it and play around.
