FRANKFURT, Germany — Riedel Communications featured new RockNet expansion solutions for Solid State Logic (SSL) consoles and Soundcraft Si Compact consoles at Prolight + Sound 2013.
More details from Riedel Communications (www.riedel.net):
Next-generation firmware for the RockNet RN.334.MD MADI interface makes SSL mixing consoles an integrated part of the Riedel RockNet digital audio network, with complete remote control functionality over all gains and the flexibility of RockNet's renowned independent gain feature.
As a result, several mixing consoles can operate with the same mic pre-amps without affecting one other — a capability that greatly simplifies multiconsole and recording setups.
Riedel's new RN.344.SI card enables integration with any Soundcraft Si Compact console, supporting 32 inputs and 32 outputs to the RockNet system. The interface enables remote control of any RockNet mic pre-amp and also offers the benefit of RockNet's independent gain feature.
