You can use Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) to get audio from your Dante network.
Please refer to Configuring an external audio source to learn how to add external audio inputs.
In some circumstances, Multicam does not see inputs from DVS. The main concern is a wrong configuration in Windows, setting an unsuitable audio format to DVS input.
Let's see how to solve.
Check audio format in Dante Controller
Firstly, we will need to check audio format of DVS drivers. Use Dante Controller from Audinate to check this.
Open Device view
Then select your Multicam in device list
Go to "Device Config" Tab and check following properties:
- Sample rate
- Preferred Encoding
Here we can see 48kHz for sample rate, and PCM 24 for encoding.
Note those values and you can now close Dante Controller.
Setting format in Windows
We will now check Windows configuration to check that DVS inputs do use those properties.
Open Sound control panel and goes to Recording Tab. Scroll into the list to find DVS Receive inputs
Then open Properties, and go to Advanced tab.
You will now have to set Default Format of input to match settings seen in Dante Controller
The values seen in drop-down have this format: [number of channels], [Encoding], [Sample rate] (Quality)
Here we have to select the line that matches properties noted before.
In this Example, we will have to select 24bit and 48000 Hz line.
