Crosstalk between channels with a 10kHz signal is around -110dB, which is another extremely good result.

The physically separate A-D and D-A converters (no single-chip implementation here!) support sample rates up to 192kHz, with 24-bit quantisation, and the converters' analogue stages have been very carefully designed for maximum performance.The display is very crisp and clear, and the whole thing exudes a decent sense of quality and professionalism.The 'Getting Started' guide does little more than identify the connections and buttons, while the download card explains how to access and download the control panel software and drivers using the product's serial number via a dedicated page on the Focusrite web site.We're not talking Grace Design quality, perhaps, but then we're not at that price either!There's a weird noise happening when I crank the gain.Pressing the Input soft toyota forklift repair manual pdf button causes the two stereo output meters to 'squash' over to the right-hand side, to make room for an input status display to squeeze in between the input and output bar-graphs.I was impressed by its technical performance and its operational simplicity and elegance, and would recommend its addition to the shortlist of anyone looking for a small but versatile interface that punches well above its cost in terms of performance.
It's possible for RedNet Control GUI to display values of 17dB for RedNet 4 when controlled via SysEx.
Importantly, the input circuitry is completely unaffected when it's working on USB bus power, and the full input dynamic range is maintained under all circumstances.
