Multichannel ASIO support comes to Dante Via
With Version 1.1, Audinate has introduced or expanded on several notable features in its Dante Via software, such as increasing application support to 16x16 channels and adding ASIO device support, adjustable source mixes and device protections. Described by the Australian company as a major update to the audio networking software suite, the latest version is available free-of-charge to existing owners from Audinate’s website.
Increasing the channel count, Dante Via 1.1 supports up to 16x16 channels of audio for each application and up to 32x32 for each connected device. Users are now also able to make audio connections between multiple applications and devices within a single computer, or between multiple computers using Dante audio networking. A brand new feature in version 1.1 is Device lock, which prevents unwanted changes to the software being made from other computers on the network. Additionally, a new Mixer panel enables level adjustments of multiple sources that are combined at stereo destinations., while the new Append Channels feature automatically assigns sources to available channels when connecting to multichannel destinations, allowing for logical routing to DAWs and mixers.
