This Thursday, 19 May, Focusrite is once again inviting audio enthusiasts to the University of West London (UWL) – home to the UK’s largest RedNet installation – for an evening of drinks, a live performance-based RedNet mixing session, and panel discussion with special guests James Towler, Will Biggs, Andrew Bourbon, and Will Hoult.
Since its last RedNet video, The London College of Music at UWL has expanded its RedNet installation to four basement studios, 2 x 20 Machine Mac Labs, the new Weston Hall Gallery, Radio Studios and a further nine studios in the recently built Brentford Campus four miles away, connected to the main facility via microwave link.
Guests for the evening include:
James Towler: Currently working as Steve Winwood’s in house engineer (and featured in the March 2016 edition of PSNEurope), Towler utilises his RedNet system as both a studio and live engineer. He has been previously awarded Recording Engineer of the Year by the Music Producers Guild for the album Nine Lives, and has recently engineered the latest Public Image Limited album, What the World Needs Now.
Will Biggs: Not many live and studio engineers can say they have constructed a large multi-room recording facility entirely themselves. Biggs and Amy Blyth have built Challow Park literally from the ground up, laying concrete, building a large recording hall with Pipe organ, two control rooms and two additional live room spaces with very little, if any help from the outside world! Find out how they refine their workflow with a RedNet system.
Andrew Bourbon: As a senior lecturer at the University of West London, Bourbon’s role has been pivotal in the design, implementation and operation of the RedNet system on campus. Since the initial installation, Bourbon has gained experience with considerably large-scale RedNet projects at the University, across a wide range of applications.
Will Hoult: Focusrite Audio Engineering’s RedNet product manager. Many decisions behind the process of the RedNet range from generating product road maps to managing the life cycle of the RedNet range lie in Hoults’ hands. This is your opportunity to meet the thought process behind the range.

The event kicks off with drinks at 6:30pm for a 7:00pm start and will be held at University of West London, St Mary's Rd, London W5 5RF
