Portland, OR (September 28, 2016)—Audinate has released Dante Via version 1.1, an update to the audio networking software.
Update features include multichannel application support, up to 16x16 channels per application; support for high performance ASIO device drivers on Windows PCs; source mixes with individual level controls for stereo destinations; the ability to append channels when adding sources to multichannel destinations; and Device Lock, which prevents unwanted changes to Dante Via 1.1 from other network users.
Dante Via 1.1 supports up to 16x16 channels of audio for each application and up to 32x32 for each connected device. Composers, performers and recording engineers can now make audio connections between multiple applications and devices within one computer, or between multiple computers using Dante audio networking.
Additional features include Device Lock, which prevents unwanted changes to Dante Via from other computers on the network, and a new Mixer panel that enables level adjustments of multiple sources that are combined at stereo destinations. The new Append Channels feature automatically assigns sources to available channels when connecting to multichannel destinations, allowing for quick and logical routing to DAWs and mixers.
The software runs on PCs running Windows 7, 8.1 or 10, and Macs running OS X10.9.5 or higher. It supports up to 48 source and 48 destination channels, and 16 channel I/O for as many as 4 simultaneous applications.
Dante Via 1.1 is a free upgrade for existing users of Dante Via.
