Expand your Dante network

Dante Via enhances any USB or Firewire audio device with network connectivity, allowing you to easily expand your Dante system with hundreds of readily available products using the drivers you prefer – ASIO or WDM on Windows and Core Audio on Mac. Simply connect your device and check "Enable Dante" in the Dante Via interface, and it's ready to connect with your entire network, unrestrained by short cable runs.

Route your applications

Dante Via isolates and routes audio to and from applications, up to 16 bidirectional channels each. Eliminate unwanted system audio sounds by choosing only the applications you wish to connect to your Dante network, and send their audio anywhere you need it. You can even send audio from different applications to different locations at once.

Monitor Dante channels

Use Dante Via to connect local headphones or speakers directly to a Dante network, so you can easily monitor Dante devices and channels from anywhere on the system with no need for dedicated hardware.

Create standalone audio networks

Connect computers running Dante Via together to create an instant Dante audio network, for cost-effective real-time sharing of microphones, interfaces and applications.
