Dante Via with A&H digital mixers
Posted by Nicola Beretta, Last modified by Nicola Beretta on 27 June 2016 11:05 AM
Dante Via is an Audinate software for routing computer-based audio into Dante networks.
The following are some application examples relating to Allen & Heath digital mixers.
Integrating a Qu mixer into a Dante network
The Qu USB audio interface is recognised by Dante Via. Click on 'Enable Dante' to make it available in Dante Controller and patch audio to any other Dante-enabled device.
FoH/Mon 32ch split between Qu and GLD/iLive/dLive
Enable Dante on the Qu USB interface and patch up to 32 channels from the GLD/iLive/dLive to the Qu mixer, or vice-versa.
Routing PAFL audio to the computer’s headphones when mixing with GLD Editor or dLive Director
Provided that your Dante card, mixing system, and laptop are set to compatible IP addresses, you can bridge the Dante Control Network port to the GLD or dLive Network ports. This gives you control of the mixer and of the Dante network at the same time. On the mixer, patch PAFL to a Dante I/O Port output. In Dante Via, enable Dante on your laptop headphones output (Built-in Output). In Dante Controller, patch the relevant Dante channels to the computer audio.
Q: Can I use the same laptop for Dante Via and recording from a Qu mixer?
Q: Can I use the Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Via at the same time?
Q: How much latency will Dante Via introduce?
