- You can connect multiple Dante devices to a switch along with the Red 4Pre, then route up to 32 channels I/O to/from the 4Pre using Dante Controller. In this setup, the 4Pre is essentially doing the same job as a PCIe card or DVS. You can still use all of the other channels on the Red 4Pre when doing this.
- On both the Red 4Pre and Red 8Pre, there are a maximum of 32 Dante inputs/outputs, routable from Dante Controller.
- At present it's not possible to control the Red 4Pre/8Pre from RedNet Control. I will however pass your desire for this functionality on to the development team for consideration as part of future updates.

If you need any more information about any of our products please feel free to get in touch with us here:

Hi Jack,

Any chance of eventually being able to access the full 64 channels of Dante on the input side at some stage or is this a limitation coming from the Protools side of things? I'm doing a lot of musicals these days and 20 - 24 dante inputs are swallowed up by radio mics alone which doesn't leave much left for the orchestra inputs and that can be anything from 6 mics to 30 mics.

Either way a Red 4pre/8pre is very high on my hit list.
