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.

音频联网调查

Audio Networking Survey全球调查结果表明 音频联网颇具前景。

2015 年,音频和视听咨询公司 RH Consulting 联合四大杂志《Systems Contractor News》《Installation International》《Pro Sound Asia》和《Pro Sound Middle East》就音频联网的使用情况进行了一项调查。调查的目的是确定音频联网的普及率以及消费者的选择趋势。

Dante 数字音频联网重新定义了成本和复杂性

Dante Digital Audio Networking Recalibrates Cost and ComplexityDante 打开了通往高度定制设计、功能丰富而价格又低廉的视听系统的新世界大门。

鱼与熊掌,无法兼得。

在此之前,这就是商业集成商、顾问及其顾客所面对的现实,谁也不敢想象市场上会有价格合理、设计简单、安装方便同时又具备高性能和多功能的音频系统。但是,当 Audinate 推出其革命性的音频联网解决方案 Dante 之后,一切就都改变了。

Dante FAQs

Dante Virtual Soundcard licenses are non-portable. When the license is activated, it becomes permanently locked to the physical computer on which it was activated, and it cannot be moved to another computer after activation.

Dante Virtual Soundcard can however be uninstalled, reinstalled and reactivated on the same physical computer any number of times, except in some situations where significant changes have been made to the fundamental hardware configuration of the computer (for example, if an internal hard drive or network interface has been added or removed).

If you are unable to reactivate Dante Virtual Soundcard on a computer which was previously running the software successfully, please complete the support form here.

  • 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.
