Audio interface with Thunderbolt 3, Dante and DigiLink connectivity.

The Red 8Line Thunderbolt 3 from Focusrite is a 58-input, 64-output audio interface that features two Red Evolution mic pres, independent L/R monitor outs and eight balanced line inputs and outputs on DB25 connectors. As with other Red interfaces, the Thunderbolt 3 has professional-grade 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion for pristine recording and audio playback. With 119dB dynamic range A-D and 121dB dynamic range D-A (A-Weighted), the converters have been expertly selected and calibrated by Focusrite to provide the best balance of sound quality, dynamic range and conversion latency.

The Red 8Line is great for professionals who work in Pro Tools and other DAWs either on Mac or PC. With both mini-DigiLink and Thunderbolt 3 connections, it's possible to instantly switch between Pro Tools and other DAW applications without the need to reconfigure audio settings. This ability to quickly switch between production environments means you'll never lose that moment of inspiration, or leave your clients waiting. With Focusrite's session-proven, ultralow-latency, rock-solid Thunderbolt drivers, you can harness the processing power of your DAW to track through plug-ins and record virtual instruments in real time.

Other features of the Red 8Line include precision metering and display, including three LCD displays for highly accurate level metering for any input or output block, as well as main monitor and headphone outputs. Two discrete high-fidelity headphone outputs are powerful enough to deliver loud and clear audio on high impedance headphones and are controlled from the interface front panel. Dual instrument inputs on the front panel ensure you always have immediate access to quickly plug in.

Now comes with Brainworx bx_console Focusrite plug-in
This awesome plug-in recreates the analog signal paths of Focusrite’s revered ISA 110 and ISA 130 modules, which were a part of the Focusrite Studio Console. Designed and coded by the DSP geniuses at acclaimed software house Brainworx, the new bx_console Focusrite VST/AU/AAX plug-in for Mac and PC faithfully captures the sound, feel and styling of the original iconic hardware.

If you purchased any Red, RedNet or ISA solution from January 2020 on, you will have the plug-in available in your Focusrite account as long as you’ve registered your product.

Note: The Focusrite Red range of Thunderbolt, Pro Tools | HD and Dante interfaces are now compatible with PCs running Windows 10 with the appropriate Thunderbolt 3 hardware.
