Digital Audio Networking Has Never Been Easier

Dante Virtual Soundcard is a software application that turns your PC or Mac into a Dante-enabled device, allowing Dante audio traffic to be transmitted and received between other Dante-enabled devices using the standard Ethernet port. No additional hardware is required, and that means significant cost savings.

Easy to set up and use

Dante Virtual Soundcard is simple to set up and use on a computer and can be ready only minutes after downloading. It is the software implementation of Audinate’s patent pending Dante™ audio transport, a flexible Internet Protocol (IP) and Ethernet based digital AV network technology that provides unprecedented flexibility, and eliminates the need for bulky cables that provide point-to-point wiring in analog AV installations.

Using Dante Virtual Soundcard in Applications

Whether in an installed location or a live sound event, a Dante network coupled with Dante Virtual Soundcard creates a powerful audio distribution and recording solution with incredible ease-of-use, giving users the ability to record and playback up to 64x64 channels of audio using a standard computer*. Dante Virtual Soundcard can be used for recording live events such as concerts, worship services, conference room meetings, corporate events, courtroom minutes, government proceedings and more.

Dante Virtual Soundcard is designed to work with popular Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) such as Nuendo®, Cubase®, Reaper®, and Logic®, as well as consumer applications like iTunes®, Windows Media Player® and Skype®. Dante Virtual Soundcard appears on computers as an ordinary Core Audio, ASIO or WDM device, no special settings are required.
