Sonnet Collaborates With Audinate

News Image
Sonnet Technologies has announced a collaboration with Audinate to certify compatibility of the Dante PCIe-R, a PCI Express (PCIe) sound card, with Sonnet's full range of Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe card expansion chassis.

The Dante PCIe-R is available as the Focusrite RedNet PCIe Card and Yamaha's Dante Accelerator PCIe-R Soundcard, is now compatible with Sonnet's range of Echo Express products (excluding the Echo Express SEL due to size limits), as well as the Sonnet xMac mini Server and xMac Pro Server solutions.

"As cost-effective solutions for high-performance recording and audio processing workflows, Audinate's Dante PCIe-R and Focusrite's RedNet PCIe Card are very popular with our customers. As a result, they have been anxiously waiting for these cards to be certified as compatible with our Echo Express and xMac product lines," said Greg LaPorte, vice president of sales and marketing, Sonnet Technologies. "Now, customers can build highly versatile and cost-effective audio workstations that enable the cards to be connected directly to any Mac computer with a Thunderbolt port — including the new Mac mini and the new Mac Pro."

The Sonnet Echo Express line enables any Mac computer equipped with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports to interface with PCIe cards such as the Dante PCIe-R and Focusrite RedNet or the Yamaha Dante Accelerator PCIe-R Soundcard. The Echo Express family includes the Echo Express SE II two-slot desktop chassis and the Echo Express III-D (desktop) and III-R (rackmount) three-slot solutions. The xMac mini Server extends Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion to a Mac mini with a Thunderbolt port and provides a 1U rackmount enclosure for the computer. In similar fashion, the xMac Pro Server provides a 4U rackmount enclosure to securely mount a Mac Pro computer and connect three PCIe 2.0 slots via Thunderbolt 2.

"Our partnership with Sonnet is an important link in our strategy to make the Dante PCIe-R available to sound professionals in the complete range of on-location as well as studio workflows," said Gary Southwell, Audinate's vice president of product management. "With Sonnet's Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion systems, our customers will be able to take advantage of Thunderbolt's lightning-fast connectivity by connecting the high-performance Dante PCIe-R to any computer lacking expansion slots."

"Certification of Sonnet's wide array of Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion systems with our RedNet PCIe Card means our customers now have more ways than ever to easily integrate RedNet Ethernet audio interfaces into their workflows," said Ted White, Focusrite RedNet product specialist. "With Sonnet's rackmount and desktop expansion solutions at users' disposal, the lack of internal expansion card slots in a computer no longer matters. Users can use any modern computer with a Thunderbolt port instead."
