tobiasbecker Posted June 13, 2013 Report Share Posted June 13, 2013 Hi, I have tried to install the Dante Virtual sound card on a WO display computer in April 2012. The display computer had 2 physical ethernet ports on the motherboard. One was used with a separate gigabit switch for the Watchout network exclusivly, the other one was used with a different gigabit switch for Dante. WO IPs were 192.168.x.y Dante IPs were 169.254.x.y (thats what they default to, its a feature not a missing DHCP). Subnet mask on both interfaces was class b or c / 255.255.0/255.0. So from a networking standpoint all WO traffic should have been routed to interface 1, and all Dante traffic should have been routed to interface 2. For some reason at the time (I didn't had the time to investigate further) as soon as Dante was activated the display computers would not play in sync any more and there were occasional dropouts in the communication. We then went back to a RME Fireface to playout the multichannel audio. As Dante is now more common in the industry and multi channel application happen day to day with WO I was wondering if there are any plans to extend the support of Dante networking? In this thread I already found a tool to assign Mono or Stereo files to specific output tracks, which is a good starting point to make the handling of multi channel audio files in the WO interface much easier ( http://forum.dataton.com/topic/2-is-there-a-possibility-of-multi-tracking-and-outputting-within-the-watchout/ ). Has anybody tested the Virtual sound card with WO and found similar issues? Wouldn't it be great if one could from within Watchout assign input and outputs channel to and from Dante?
