Here’s a possible scenario:
GLD-80 with a Dante card at FOH. From that card, could we connect another GLD-80 with a Dante card at side stage to run musician monitors? And in that same setup, capture multi-track recording to a laptop connected to the same network? My confusion comes in when looking at the ACE card. Do you have to use an ACE card to connect two A&H consoles together?


Yes you can. To link two GLD (or iLive) you can use a variety of formats: ACE, Dante, MADI or Ethersound. ACE is the most cost-effective and easy to use (no software / computer control needed), but if you also need multitrack recording/playback then go for Dante.

You can connect 2x GLD-80 directly using a Cat5e cable, or use a standard Gigabit switch in between and therefore connect your computer as well. The network routing (which channels go where) and clock settings are configured using Dante Controller on your computer. Have a look at the M-Dante product page on our website for further info.

A second scenario:
GLD-80 with a Dante card at FOH. A Yamaha O1V96 with the available 16 channel Dante card at side stage. Could this work as a musician monitor solution? Would I be able to choose which 16 channels the Yamaha uses as inputs?


This is possible as well. Using the i/o patchbay in GLD and the routing matrix in Dante Controller, you can send any channel from one system to the other. This is valid for any Dante-enabled device including mixing consoles, amplifiers, loudspeaker controllers etc.

I hope this helps,
