    Hi.

    I have a situation where I would like to recommend a Qu mixer. However a Dante option is required! Am I out of luck or??????

    None of the Qu mixers can accomodate a Dante card, I wish they could.
    A GLD mixer does and works beautifully too.

    Yes, I know abut the GLD but it comes at an impossible price tag in this situation.

    A 32×32 USB to Dante box would do the job but I have only found 2×2 converters. Another idea would be a USB to RAB-2 box with the possibility to use all the current networking cards 😉

    The lack of an expansion slot in the Qu series is a pity. Several competitors has got it…

    Hi Åke

    Perhaps you should check out Dante VIA software. Exposes any USB audio stream to a Dante network. Qu’s 32 ch USB interface could then be exposed to a Dante Network via your computers ethernet port.

    Yes, Dane Via is an interesting technology and if it would have been possible to run in on it on a Raspberry Pi, using Rasbian, it would have been a very, very interesting option…

    Apart from wishful thinking, I don’t think it’s possible to run Dante Via headless (without monitor, keyboard and mouse) without logging in to the computer (autostart when turning on the computer). This is would be what’s needed for a permanent install. Another problem is the fact that this system would be used maybe 5 – 10 hours a week, which would make a computer running 24/7 a big overkill (how do you turn on/off the computer without user intervention?).

    Regards,

    You have the user turn on the Amos… It’s only more more switch in the chain.
