The Audinate Dante-MY16-AUD Mini-YGDAI interface card marketed by Yamaha Corporation has been updated to allow remote head amp control. The updated version allows the head amps in the Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D I/O rack units to be remotely controlled from an M7CL or LS9 digital mixing console.
The Dante network audio protocol developed by the Australia based Audinate company offers outstanding basic performance with low jitter and latency, while also allowing flexible system scaling to accommodate a wide range of applications and capacities.
Those capabilities have made Dante a mainstream choice for installations and live sound applications.
Yamaha’s collaboration with Audinate began in 2009 with the development of the Dante-MY16-AUD interface card, and this year’s release of the Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles saw the world’s first implementation of Dante as the standard built-in protocol. With this update the Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D I/O rack units that could previously only be used with the CL series can now be used with digital mixing consoles such as the M7CL and LS9 that do not feature built-in Dante communication capability.
“Now Yamaha digital consoles equipped with Audinate’s Dante-MY16-AUD will gain the ability use the head amp control feature and integrate with the new the Rio I/O racks” says Lee Ellison, Audinate’s CEO. “This enhancement further extends the complete Dante network ecosystem for Yamaha products.”
