    I know maybe no one has seen the software yet, but I’ll ask anyway…

    I use 2 computers (one in the rack) and often my laptop. When I eventually get a Dante card, will I be able to install the virtual sound card driver on both computers?

    Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

    The license will cover you for a single computer – the additional licenses run at about $150 apparently (you buy them online from Audinate)

    I’m seeing a lot of talk and anticipation of the Dante cards, what are the advatanges over say the MADI card which is already available?

    It’s main advantages are that it’s cheaper overall,only need the one card in your rack (Dante) as you can use your pc/mac to playback/record directly using the network port…..you can appreciate the cost differences if you have 2 computers running a redundant system for either playback or for recordings….with a MADI card you will need at least a RME madiface for your comp….

    You also have Dante equipped amplifiers, processors and loudspeakers which can sit on the network and be accessed directly from the console outputs. Transport is over good quality mass market network topology cheap and simple. All sounds good to me.
    I find MADI good for linking to recording trucks though as there is a lot of legacy MADI pro recording products out there.

    Guess I need both really[:D]

    You could just position yourself as the live sound guy who produces a product as good as the recording truck guys (without the hassle that comes with dealing with another crew) and double your income ;)

    Used the demo DANTE card and some Lake LM26’s last november over 300m fibre optic; very useful for seeing whats going on without swimming the moat and climbing the castle walls!

    Just remember kids no matter how good your mixing is you can’t polish a turd…
