Focusrite has announced that it has formed a new division to serve the specific needs of audio professionals worldwide, Focusrite Pro. According to the company, the professional division is dedicated to removing creative and technical barriers by improving the workflows of audio professionals, with scalable audio solutions that meet both their current and future requirements.
The Focusrite Pro division currently oversees three product ranges:
- Red multi-format audio interfaces;
- RedNet modular audio-over-IP solutions; and
- ISA microphone preamplifiers and analogue signal processors.
Focusrite currently maintains four brands: Focusrite, Focusrite Pro, Novation and Ampify.
The Focusrite Pro division is led by Richard Nevens, VP Global Sales.
“Focusrite Pro seeks to engage with professional audio clients, both pre- and post-sale, as they transition their workflows and facilities to an audio-over-IP infrastructure. Dante technology provides capabilities and a level of flexibility previously unavailable, and Focusrite is the leading provider of this technology throughout this significant industry transition,” Nevens commented. “Focusrite Pro is the client-facing team, supporting clients as a trusted advisor, providing both technical guidance and recommended sales solutions that are tailored to their workflows. This includes arranging demos, providing system integration recommendations, offering comparative proof points through the sales engagement process, and further assistance to ensure all the client’s needs are met.”
Tim Carroll, CEO, Focusrite Audio Engineering, said, “The sole focus of Focusrite Pro is to enable audio professionals with audio solutions for modern-day workflows. Audio professionals now have a dedicated team of professional audio product designers and sales and support staff. This new team will help them build and deploy solutions that address the needs of modern-day audio production in broadcast, post-production, music production, live and installed sound.”
