I finally got around to trying recording via Dante on my new A&H GLD 112.Set up static addresses on both the Dante card and MacBook Pro (OSX 10.9.1, 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, i.e. old laptop). 10.0.1.xSet up Dante for 32*32.Set DVS to 10ms latency (highest setting). Set Cubase to use a 2048 sample buffer (highest setting).Turned off wifi on the MacBook Pro.No network, just a normal cat 5 cable between MacBook Pro and Dante primary port on option card.GLD control network isn't hooked up to anything.Dante Controller (latest version downloaded tonight) says all is well. GB connection, no errors, no log errors, IP addresses are cool, everything routes just fine...Tried recording 10 tracks in Reaper, and 24 tracks in Cubase, and I get the same problem, random spikes across random tracks. Cubase has an option for 'external clock' which I selected and deselected, it made no difference.FWIW, recording works flawlessly on my new X32 via USB on the same system.Any ideas what my problem might be?
Hi MarkThe wording in Controller is slightly confusing, as when it says 'External Wordclock', it means external to the Dante card, as opposed to 'to the product the Dante card is plugged in to'. In the case of the GLD, this corresponds to the GLD's internal clock.The correct settings for your setup are to have the Dante card set to slave to external word clock, and to set the GLD clock to Internal (As Alan suggested). The preferred master setting only has an effect when you have more than one Dante device in your system, excluding any Virtual Soundcard instances (which must always be clock slaves).Hope this helps- Jeff, A&H
Thanks David and Adan. Setting the GLD to use the Dante card as the clock master seems to have fixed the problem. Setting the Dante card as 'preferred master' in Dante Controller seems to have had no effect.
In any network audio system, the network should be the clock master to all hardware devices.Mac
