Focusrite RED 8PRE
The Focusrite RED 8PRE gives you a 64×64 premium audio interface for Pro Tools HD and Thunderbolt 2 workflows. Sporting both Thunderbolt 2 connectivity and dual mini-DigiLink ports, the RED 8PRE gives you the best of both Core Audio and Pro Tools HD workflows. So take the RED 8PRE on the road for location recording over Thunderbolt. Then, connect the same interface to Pro Tools HDX or Pro Tools HD Native at the studio for mixdown.
Additionally, Host Mode allows you to easily switch between Pro Tools HD and any Thunderbolt-connected DAW. Combining low-latency conversion and driver technology, the RED 8PRE allows you to create real-time foldback mixes in the DAW. All while you continue to make use of your native plugins.
Unlike so many other interfaces, both mini-DigiLink and Thunderbolt 2 connectivity comes standard. So there’ll be no need to buy additional option cards.
Finally, the RED 8PRE comes complete with a copy of the Focusrite Control software, Red plug-in suite, as well as Softube Time and Tone plugin packs.
