Following on from previous certification for the AUDIO-X2 high-performance audio workstation, the famed British maker of audio equipment now gives RECORDER.1 its official seal of approval. RECORDER.1 was designed for easy and secure live recording while taking up the least space possible. It is the world’s first 1U multitrack reorder to offer simultaneous recording of up to 128 audio channels at 96 kHz/24 bit or 64 channels at 192 kHz/24 bit in a Focusrite RedNet audio network. Needing a mere 33 seconds to reach ready-to-record state after being powered on, RECORDER.1 offers exceedingly fast reaction times. This is made possible by a combination of carefully selected enterprise-class components and the dedicated Focusrite RedNet PCIe interface card.

All RedNet-certified systems go through an exhaustive 36-hour non-stop stability test before shipping. Each unit’s performance, stability and functionality under full system load are verified using test scenarios mirroring real-world situations, as well as artificial stress tests.

“Digital audio networks have become the de facto standard for live events. That’s why we’re especially pleased to be able to offer systems for the Dante technology as implemented by Focusrite,” comments XI-MACHINES CEO Patrick Strenge. “The RedNet-certified RECORDER.1 ships with Steinberg’s NUENDO LIVE® audio software installed, allowing easy, intuitive handling even in the most demanding recording scenarios. RECORDER.1-DANTE systems are optimized for smooth operation of DANTE digital audio networks and are compatible with all renowned audio hardware brands for secure, stable recording of live events on tour or integration into control room installations,” Strenge continues.

RECORDER.1 systems with RedNet certification are now shipping worldwide and can be combined with optional, interchangeable RecPacks. Depending on the system’s configuration and thanks to the EBU RIFF 64 Broadcast wave format, RECORDER.1 offers recording for up to 3 x 12 hours across 128 inputs.
