Dante Basics for the IT crowd

Can I connect a Dante device directly to my computer?

Yes. Simply connect your Dante enabled devices to an Ethernet switch, using Cat5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable, and then connect your computer to the same switch.

If you have only one Dante-enabled device to connect to your computer, you may eliminate the switch and simply connect the two with a Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet cable.

What type of Ethernet cable is recommended for Dante?

As most Dante devices support gigabit Ethernet, Cat5e or Cat6 cable is recommended. For purely 100Mbps networks, CAT5 may be used.

Does Dante work with Fiber Optic network cable?

Yes. Because Dante works with standards based networking technology, using fiber is simple. Use a switch that supports fiber connections to send Dante data over a fiber optic cable.

Audio Networking Survey

Audio Networking Survey世界的な調査を通して、ネットワークオーディオのさらなる普及の見通し。

2015 年、業務用音響およびAV機器コンサルタントである RH Consulting が、Systems Contractor News, Installation International, Pro Sound Asia, Pro Sound Middle Eastの 4 誌と共に、ネットワークオーディオに関する調査を実施しました。この調査により、ネットワークオーディオがどれだけ浸透しているか、ユーザーがどの規格を選択しているのかが明らかになりました。

Dante Digital Audio Networking Recalibrates Cost and Complexity

Dante Digital Audio Networking Recalibrates Cost and ComplexityDanteにより、AVシステムの設計において柔軟かつ豊富な機能を持ったシステムを、高いコストパフォーマンスで実現

「ケーキを食べてしまうと、そのケーキを持っていることはできない(英語の諺より)」

昨今まで、コストとシステムの柔軟性、機能は相反するものであり、システム施工企業やコンサルタント会社、および顧客が直面していた現実でした。手ごろな価格、シンプルな設計と簡単な施工を実現し、かつ柔軟で高性能なオーディオシステムを夢見ていたのです。しかし、Audinateによる革新的なネットワークオーディオによるソリューション、Danteがすべてを変えました。

Dante FAQs

Dante Software Support on Sierra (macOS version 10.12)

Audinate has completed the validation of Dante software on Sierra.

Dante Controller

The latest version of Dante Controller has passed validation and is fully supported on macOS Sierra.

Dante Virtual Soundcard

The latest version of Dante Virtual Soundcard has passed validation and is fully supported on macOS Sierra.

Dante Via

The latest version of Dante Via has passed validation and is fully supported on macOS Sierra.

Dante PCIe Card Drivers

The current GA Dante PCIe card drivers for Focusrite and Yamaha cards for macOS may not yet be supported on Sierra. Please contact the relevant manufacturer for more information. 

The latest Audinate PCIe-R card driver for macOS does however support 10.12 Sierra. Note that you cannot use this driver for Focusrite or Yamaha cards.

  • This is likely to be caused by the input not being synchronous to Dante.  Either:
  1. Set the input source to clock to Dante (in most consoles this is a card slot option).
  2. Set Dante to slave to external word clock on this device (external being external to the Dante Network – it is not normally a visible cable).
  • EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also sometimes known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.

    Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, it is a relatively new technology, and some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronisation performance and occasional dropouts.

  1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
  2. If you use unmanaged switches, do not use Ethernet switches that support the EEE function, because you cannot disable EEE operation in these switches.
  • Most of the time, you do not need to be involved in the Master Clock selection process. Dante guarantees that the Master Clock device will be by default the strongest candidate.
  • A Dante device with "Slave to External Word Clock" set will use the external word clock from its host equipment to tune its onboard VCXO. A Dante device with this attribute set will become the PTP Master Clock, unless there is another Dante device present with "Preferred Master" set.
  • Sometimes it may be necessary to force a particular device to provide the PTP Master Clock. A Dante device with "Preferred Master" set will always be chosen as the PTP Master Clock. If more than one device has "Preferred Master" set, the device with the lowest MAC address will be chosen.

 

As of July 2013, the Dante-MY16-AUD product box includes updated documentation. The Dante-MY16-AUD card itself is unchanged. As part of this update, we have changed the way you redeem the Dante Virtual Soundcard License bundled with your Dante-MY16-AUD purchase. 

If your product box contains a 'Download Your Software' card (like the one shown below) with a DVS token label on it, you can redeem the DVS token for a Dante Virtual Soundcard license ID here: Redeem DVS Token

As of this date, we no longer record or track the serial numbers of the Dante-MY16-AUD cards.  If the card above was missing from your product box, or if you have misplaced the card, we do not track which DVS Tokens were included in each Dante-MY16-AUD product box.  Yamaha provides exclusive distribution and support for the Dante-MY16-AUD card. Support information can be accessed by contacting your authorized Yamaha Pro Audio Dealer. 

If your product box contains a DVD like the one shown below (and no 'Download Your Software' card), you will need to contact support (see below).

To proceed, you will need to know your Dante-MY16-AUD card serial number.  You can find your Dante-MY16-AUD serial number:

  • On a label on your Dante-MY16-AUD card
  • On a label on your Dante-MY16-AUD original packaging

You can submit your serial number using the form at the bottom of the Dante Software Support page (be sure to select 'Licensing & Registration' as the Case Reason).

  • Check that the Dante Virtual Soundcard is turned on.
  • Check that the network interfaces being used by Dante Virtual Soundcard are the correct ones.
  • Check the IP address settings of Dante Virtual Soundcard.

 

  • Check that the network cable is plugged in securely and that the activity lights are flashing rapidly.
  • Check that the correct network interfaces are selected.
  • Check that your network interfaces have the correct IP addresses (set to acquire IP address automatically).
  • If there are two different wired network interfaces on your computer, ensure that they are in different subnets – or disable the unused network interface.
  • Check that you have no firewall active – please see the Dante controller user guide for details of how to safely configure a firewall for use in a deployed network.
  • Check that you have no antivirus software active (Dante uses 'unusual' port addresses, due to the 'usual' port addresses already being used by other common applications) – you will need to configure your antivirus software to allow the full function of Dante.

Yes, the latest versions of Dante Controller and Dante Virtual Soundcard operate on Macs running OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Dante Controller requires Java on OS X. Java is installed automatically with OS X 10.7 and 10.8, but not with OS X 10.9 or 10.10.
If Java is not present when Dante Controller is first started, your machine should automatically install Java. If for some reason this does not occur automatically, please visit www.audinate.com/dc-macosx-java.

Go to the Dante Controller page for a link to the latest version.
