Cranborne Audio C.A.S.T Intro Bundle
The Cranborne Audio C.A.S.T. Introduction Bundle features all of the essential items you need to get your studio connected via Cranborne Audio’s proprietary cable management system, C.A.S.T.
Featuring a central connectivity hub in the form of N8 as well as the N22 and N22H breakout boxes, the C.A.S.T. Intro Bundle is an entry-level into the world of C.A.S.T. and ships with two 10m Cat 6 cables and other accessories to get you started.
C.A.S.T. allows you to deploy analog patch points and stageboxes around your studio and directly to where they are needed. Rather than worry about multiple XLR cables and trailing ends to the XLR leads, C.A.S.T. can replace 4 XLR cables with a single network cable for neater cable management, consistent sound quality, and easier deployment during mobile recording.
Featuring Input and Output connectors on DB25, the included N8 converts 8 analog inputs and 8 analog outputs to Cranborne Audio’s proprietary C.A.S.T. system and creates ingenious, plug-and-play signal routing with any other C.A.S.T.-enabled product. With 4 dedicated C.A.S.T. ports, N8 allows up to 4 Cranborne Audio breakout boxes to be connected at once for 16 channels of audio routing with any audio interface, mixer, or audio installation.
The included N22H is a C.A.S.T. breakout box and reference-grade headphone amplifier that is perfect for creating an instant vocal booth. Connect N22H to N8 via C.A.S.T. and you can put a performer, vocal mic, and headphones in one room, whilst receiving the vocal mic signal and sending a headphone mix from a completely different room – all with just one Network cable!
The included N22 is a completely passive stagebox that can be connected to N8 and positioned in the live room, hallway, or vocal booth to connect microphones and speakers to and from your control room up to 100m/330ft away.
C.A.S.T. is a high-quality and plug-and-play method of transporting audio from A to B with the least amount of cabling mess. It also supports 48v phantom power in all directions for active DI boxes and condenser microphones. Best of all, as networking cable is common-place in people’s homes, a whole studio re-wire with Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 7, and C.A.S.T. is cheaper than equivalent XLR looms and copper snakes.
With a completely passive design, no power is required for full operation and C.A.S.T connectivity. The C.A.S.T. Intro Bundle is rugged enough for the stage or rack-mountable with the Included Half-Rack Kit and it’s a cabling solution designed to transform your open space into a studio.
