    I haven’t recalled a show in a while, so I can’t scroll back far enough to confirm, but I bet it shows in the history logs, just like the scene recalls do… Util/Shows – Utility

    I have had to adjust the metering ballistics as I noticed right off the bat that it was a bit too slow, and the peak metering was a bit too fast by default.

    A video popped up in my suggested feed that just so happened to be a Dave Rat video that explained this quite well. Different board but similar concept. Very enlightening.

    Security nerd here. More than likely, the reason it was set up this way was for security purposes. To prevent cross contamination between networks. Allowing a group of ips to traverse those network goes against the model. I’m sure that there are multiple protocols and potentially multicast protocols and ports that will need to be allowed. Anyone with access to those ips will be allowed full access to BOTH networks. Hopefully all traffic on either network is solely traffic for employees and staff only but just know that if either network gets compromised, they both will. Just food for thought. Not looking for a debate as some could reply with, “what’s the big deal?”, but those folks have probably never fallen victim to an attack. Convenience is the enemy of security.

    IMHO, switching networks is the best option.

    Probably wouldn’t hurt anything unless you plug a non-phantom powered vocal mic into it. Nice little shock to the lips if they get too close!

    I super appreciate everyone’s input on the matter. It is a very interesting conversation on what is vs. what should be. I won’t be so shy to push the board hotter, but the red lights just feel so… icky. It definitely makes me feel a lot more comfortable that if I struggle to get a level, I can push it without much fear.

    I think I probably would prefer RMS metering as well especially if peaking doesn’t seem to matter as much anymore. I think it would be even more important in the broadcast world since LUFS is the new standard as opposed to peak level.

    I guess the landscape is changing constantly and with the future containing more 32 but audio, I guess clipping and distortion will eventually no longer exist one day.

    Blessing on all and thank you again for your valuable input.

    Sounds like Yvo may have the right idea. You could do it with one mono matrix and patch LR to the ext in. Patch outer speakers to LR. Inner speakers to mono matrix. I have a feeling that this is probably not exactly what you are looking for but I am not sure how you would progressively pan from one speaker to the next without additional specialized hardware. An old Yamaha O2R96 I used to run could do it as it had a joystick for panning and up to 5.1 output capability.

    Seems like an awful waste of outputs to push the same mix out of each. Why not use a splitter coming out of one output and have the availability to do other things with your other outputs?

    Hmm… the only other things I personally can think of is to try new network cables, try isolating your network from everything else, or it could be a bad card.

    I will give an example of what I would love to have. If you have access to an avantis, you can have the preamp meter at the top and set the meter at the bottom to be post compressor/delay.

    Not to continue to jab at A&H (sorry guys I know a lot of this is not your fault) but it is ironic that the Windows support for Director is rock solid, mac support sucks, but then they only support iOS for all of their Apps. A&H should just consider purchasing Mixing Station contract them to make A&H apps. It is quite superior (for most things) if you spend the time configuring it.

    If you still have issues, try increasing the “Dante Latency” in DVS. If it is set too low sometimes the system can’t keep up, especially the more tracks you send.

    It’s not so much that A&H have locked their app for Apple users, it’s more to do with the ROI of hiring android developers and then maintaining that app. I’m not defending the position at all, but that is the reality. I am an Android user after all, but Apple for some reason seems to have always been the defacto standard despite Android being just as, if not more popular. A lot of the popular creative platforms used to be Apple only (Protools, Photoshop, etc…) and that pretty much steered the industry to make sure that Apple was supported first. Times have changed and A&H just seem to be behind for supporting additional platforms. So far behind that community based developers are picking up the slack and that is quite disappointing.

    All these are great ideas. Please add them to the feature suggestion forum.

    I use both the dlive and Avantis on a regular basis and if the needs can be met, I will always choose the Avantis. I do love the dlive, but Avantis just flows better.

    First things first, in Dante controller, make sure that you are routing the dlive as the transmitter and the ableton computer as the receiver. Then also make sure you route the ableton as a transmitter and the dlive as a receiver. I personally set everything 1 to 1 to keep the routing as frustration free as possible. Setting it that way will allow you to send AND receive audio.

    On the Ins B page set your send to be Dante slot/channel. The return should automatically be the same channel (I think). If you want the return to be a different channel, then Unassign the return and route ableton to return the audio on a different Dante/Dlive channel, then assign that channel to a separate fader.
