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.

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.

My prayers have been heard, Dante is coming!
