    Hi everybody,
    I’m a great A&H fan.Have had few analog boards in my life and now I have a small GL2 in my studio for extra channels and EQ.
    love the board and has never let me down!!! I use Lynx Aurora 16 and some SSL pre’s as my go to for recording in the studio but lately I have done many concerts mixing through SAC – software audio console with B-gear and RME cards.
    So…Kind of a fed up with playing around with toys and I want to move on to use some real Remote Pre’s
    and a PCI DANTE card from Yamaha.

    Is there anyone with experience regarding this setup: Yamaha DANTE + GLD ARA2412?
    Is the SLDARA2412 using a standard DANTE protocol or it has its own system, and can I control the rack from
    the yamaha card?

    All the Best,

    The AR2412 (and AB168 and AR84) stageboxes use A&H’s proprietary dSnake protocol. They’re only compatible with GLD and Qu mixers. To get signals from an AR2412 into Dante you’d need to use a GLD console with a Dante expansion card, or some other expansion card to get multitrack into a computer running DVS (or just a PC running DVS if using a Qu, but there are other issues with that eg finding the right DAW and clocking,) or a GLD another expansion card eg MADI, and then a MADI-Dante Bridge.

    In any of these scenarios though, you still wouldn’t be able to control preamp gain and +48v through the Dante network, as the preamp control is part of the dSnake protocol, which is closed source. It would need to be controlled through the GLD\Qu mixer.
