Support for Device Lock: Dante PCIe-R cards can now be locked, using Dante Controller. When a Dante device is locked it cannot be controlled or configured, but can be monitored. Refer to the Dante Controller user guide for more information about Device Lock.
Windows 7 (SP1)
Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows Server 2008 R2
OS X 10.11.6
OS X 10.10.5
Please refer to the user guide for system requirements.
Note: The macOS Audinate PCIe-R card driver has not yet been fully validated for macOS 10.13, and use of the driver on macOS 10.13 is not formally supported.
However, should you choose to experiment, the kernel extension will need to be manually approved, by following the instructions in this Apple technical note.
Please refer to the user guide for installation instructions.
EMB-2395 / ETS-845 / EMB-2394 / ETS-859 / EMB-2414 / EMB-2415 / ETS-877: Some third-party applications displayed instability when the PCIe card was selected as audio interface. The PCIe drivers were updated to resolve the issue.
Firmware v18.104.22.168 9 (released 6th July 2016)
EMB-1107: Microblaze crashes if an invalid sample rate is set
EMB-1295: DHCP can fail to acquire an address
EMB-527: DHCP cannot acquire an address if the DHCP server does not provide a broadcast address
EMB-1860: An incorrect RX flow state (no audio) was reported after IP address transition, even though audio was present
EMB-1924: Microblaze crashes if an invalid sample rate message with no body is sent to the device
EMB-1999: Rx minimum latency was being reported as 0, instead of the correct value
EMB-1989: Spurious channel change messages were sent on reboot
EMB-2054: Cannot self-subscribe to a Tx channel with 1 or more labels
EMB-2102: Tx flow queries that fill an Ethernet packet could include an truncated entry
EMB-2246: Not all gratuitous ConMon messages are sent on reboot
EMB-2266: Spurious flash save on boot
EMB-1850 - In some circumstances, the change of a PTP master clock's frequency from a 48K base to a 44K base can cause its clock to drift off-centre
EMB-1226: Devices could continue to receive audio from disabled Tx channels
EMB-1227: A subscription to a non-existent channel would continue to receive audio from the original multicast channel
EMB 1216: Devices sometimes would not appear in Dante Controller after extended periods on a network with no Dante Controller instance present
6872: Device does not respond to IGMP source specific queries, it only responds to general queries
EMB-1179: Multicast flows created in quick succession may get lost on sample rate change
EMB-1111: Changing sample rate can reset encoding
3737: Periodical notification from Rx channel when tx device can no more flows
EMB-1121: Device should always use higher of transmit and receive frames-per-packet value
EMB-1195: No ConMon TX_LABEL_CHANGE event after clearing the Tx label name
#6612: Audio artefacts can arise when increasing the buffer size via a DAW on OS X (this currently appears to be an OS X issue)
#7930: The PCIe driver does not communicate properly with the PCIe firmware.
Scope: Windows and OS X.
Situation: This occurs if the PCIe driver on the host computer is updated before the PCIe card firmware.
Workaround: Update the the PCIe card firmware before updating the PCIe driver on the computer.
#7822: PCIe hosted in Thunderbolt cage can become unresponsive after waking from sleep.
Scope: OS X
Workaround: Restart the PC.
