Audinate has announced enhancements to Dante Virtual Soundcard software for Windows.
With the new Windows Driver Model (WDM) mode in V3.2.0, Dante Virtual Soundcard for Windows now adds support for applications including iTunes, Windows Media Player, Skype and more. PC users can play out or record audio from these applications with professional sound quality.
The Dante Virtual Soundcard allows a PC or Mac to connect audio applications directly to a Dante audio network. Dante Virtual Soundcard uses the standard Ethernet port on your computer to communicate with a network of other Dante enabled devices—no special hardware is required.
· Choice of 64x64 ASIO or 8 x 8 WDM mode (presents as four stereo Windows WDM soundcards)
· Choice of 44.1kHz or 48kHz sample rate in WDM mode
· Windows 8 32- and 64 bit support
· Integrated online help
· Installation of Apple Bonjour service no longer required
· Clock performance improvements
“The addition of WDM support for Dante Virtual Soundcard for Windows opens up a range of exciting new applications for Dante networks”, says Mary Cudmore, Audinate director of product delivery. “The new extended interface means that not only can you continue to use your favorite DAW in ASIO mode, you can now switch to WDM mode and connect direct to media player, conferencing or browser applications.”
