If you have a RedNet product that comes bundled with Dante Virtual Soundcard then you first need to register the unit on our website.
After registering, your Dante Virtual Soundcard license will be available after clicking the "My Software" button at the top of your account page.
Click the link through to the Audinate site and create a free account. When prompted, enter the Dante Virtual Soundcard token from your Focusrite account to add DVS to your Audinate account.
This will generate the Audinate Activation Code you will use to activate Dante Virtual Soundcard. (Shown under “License ID” see screenshot below).
Then, open up Dante Virtual Soundcard. Under the Licensing tab, enter this license ID and click Activate.
You have now successfully activated Dante Virtual Soundcard!
To get started with DVS, open it up and go to the Settings tab (Screenshot below). Here you can select the number of available audio channels, Dante latency, and your network interface. The network interface represents which Ethernet port you will be using if your computer has more than one.
On Windows systems, you will have the option to use DVS in ASIO or WDM mode.
Click ‘Start’ to start DVS. Then, you will be able to select DVS as your default playback device.
Mac: System Preferences > Sound > Output > Select DVS as the device
Windows: Control Panel > Sound > Playback > Select DVS as the device
