    I currently run an iLive T80 with iDR32 and am planning on purchasing a dante card. In theory, the card should give me 64 outs to my computer over CAT5. But is that 64 outs limited by the 24 outs on the iDR32? Does iLive know I have more channel outputs available on my dante than my iDR32?

    In other words, can I record ALL 32 inputs into my iDR32, directly after the 1st level of gain, through Dante? Multi-track recording on all my inputs is the goal here.

    Hope I’m making myself vaguely clear.

    All iLive-Systems in SingleRack-Mode can handle 64 Inputs and 32 Mixbusses. BUT the Direct-Outputs of the Inputs are separatly available. So Yes, you can record all 32 Inputs of your iDR32 :-)

    Great. Thanks Thomas. I was just not sure what the Dante “sees” from the iLive system. Thanks for the clarification.

    Dante will ‘see’ whatever you tell it to – I record my up to 32 ins plus a stereo matrix of the main mix as a guide track for post production, but if I wanted I could also record the effects returns, groups, or anything else that I put my mind to – the Dante screen allows a wide variety of sources to be selected.

    In short:
    Everything you can assign to a physical output, you can also assign to a Dante output.
    Direct out’s of all input channels, all insert-outs, all mix channels, …

    Yep. What they all said. It’s pretty nice to be able to record anything you want. I mean I guess if you’re running a full 64 inputs you’re stuck with that, but I only run about 20-24 channels through Dante. I’m gonna set up recording the in-ear mixes soon. Just so I can get an idea of what everyone is hearing. ;)

    Are you quite sure you want to hear the IEM mixes?! I did that last year and it shocked me … and taught me a hell of a lot! I no longer assume that ‘artists’ can mix their own in-ears using either the PL10s or Aviom – they need instruction in the beginning.

    Well as you said it taught you a lot. I’m hoping to learn also. Fwiw I’m mixing the in-ears and most everyone is happy. The lead singer struggles sometimes. I’ve never mixed iem’s before and just wanna hear what everyone is hearing and see what I can do to help. May prove fruitless but I won’t know until I try. ;)

    And to clarify I also perform so I have my own mix and can’t easily hear what they’re hearing.

    Here I got a question – how do I route FX return signals to Dante?

    In editor, go to I/O setup. Choose the Dante pane. Highlight the Dante channel you wish to feed from an effect output.In ‘select output source’ choose Rack FX. Then choose Rack FX unit nr an output number. Done.

    OK, thanks- I’ve missed such option. Will check if I have that also on surface.

    Hi Scruffyd & ddff lv

    Just to Clarify RackFX Outputs are taken directly from the output of the FX unit. There is no level fader for this output or FX PEQ option.

    If you wish to have an output level fader for the FX unit to Dante, you will need to either send the output of the FX unit to a mix channels e.g. matrix channel External input then send the Matrix channel to Dante.
    or use the ‘input fx’ return and send this return to either a group or aux then use the group or aux to Dante so you will have an output level fader.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
