I perfectly see that a dedicated hardware can be faster :-)
no reason to trash Dante however :-) they offer this too:

Latency Network latency as low as 150us.
Round trip latency (including the audio application)
as low as 2.99ms
Onboard hardware

Although I don’t know how they can say something about roundtrip including the audio app, if they don’t know what the audio app will be. However I you build a custom server just to use waves, there are no apparent technical reasons why Dante could not be just as fast as Soundgrid. Soundgrid seems interresting, however don’t know their prices.

*correction*
Approx 560 for a 16×16 card. proprietary layer 2 protocol…

Soundgrid seems nice but it only allow for waves plugins to be used…

Update: I asked them if they couldn’t make a Dante-enabled version of their soundgrid server.
Update on 21/11: Waves now also have a “SG Driver” which can be used as a standard ASIO driver for Soundgrid. This is no longer a sole advantage for Dante.
