Audinate®, creator of the industry-leading audio networking technology Dante™,
has announced the immediate worldwide availability of Dante Via™ version 1.1, a
major update to the popular audio networking software. New features of this update

• Multichannel application support – up to 16×16 channels per application
• Support for high performance ASIO device drivers on Windows PCs
• Source mixes with individual level controls for stereo destinations
• Ability to append channels when adding sources to multichannel

Dante Via transforms audio networking, connecting all computer-based audio,
including USB, Thunderbolt and PCIe devices as well as audio applications, to any
Dante audio network. With automatic discovery of all audio applications, devices
and Dante network endpoints and an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, Dante Via is
fast and easy to use. Version 1.1 takes it even further with support for ASIO-
connected devices on Windows, full multichannel functionality for audio applications,
level controls on source mixes, and channel appending for multichannel audio

With increased performance and channel count, Dante Via 1.1 supports up to 16×16
channels of audio for each application and up to 32×32 for each connected device.
Composers, performers and recording engineers can now make audio connections
between multiple applications and devices within one computer, or between multiple
computers using Dante audio networking. By extending existing, cost-effective
computer-based I/O over a Dante network, systems for overflow rooms in schools,
business and houses of worship are easily created and deployed as needed, with
only a few mouse clicks.

Additional features include Device Lock, which prevents unwanted changes to Dante
Via from other computers on the network, and a new Mixer panel that enables level
adjustments of multiple sources that are combined at stereo destinations. The new
Append Channels feature automatically assigns sources to available channels when
connecting to multichannel destinations, allowing for quick and logical routing to
DAWs and mixers.

“Dante Via has already changed the way that integrators, sound engineers and
consumers use computer-based audio devices and programs.” says Joshua Rush, VP
of Marketing & Product for Audinate. “With support for multichannel audio
applications and ASIO devices, the latest version unlocks a host of new possibilities
for computer-based audio.”

Dante Via has already secured several high-profile awards, including several “Best
of Show’ accolades at InfoComm 2015 and 2016. The software runs on PCs running
Windows® 7, 8.1 or 10, and Macs® running OS X10.9.5 or higher. It supports up to
