Shielded cable is required for connecting both the AD-24 and the DA-816 to the MIX-16 or MIX-32. Shielded cable is not required for connecting a CS-SOLO or CS-DUO to the MIX-16/32 or connecting the LM-DANTE card to the Dante network. However, shielded is recommended.
As of Livemix version 4.0, the Dante Controller is required for setting up Livemix on the Dante Network. Versions prior to 2.15 do not require the Dante Controller, although it’s use is recommended. You will also need to use Dante Controller to set the Master Clock for the Dante Network. See the LM-DANTE User Guide pg. 8 for assigning Dante Channels.
Livemix works with either analog or digital (Dante) input. With the AD-24 analog input unit you can connect TRS or DB25 connectors from your console or recording interface. For a Digital connection with Dante, plug directly into a switch. For other digital formats (MADI), you may need a format converter.
We recommend to make the Master clock the console or Dante card in the console. NOTE: There are two ways this can be done. 1) Set the console’s internal clock as Master, then using Dante Controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock (for the Dante Network) and also check box “Sync to External”. This will allow the card to stay synched to the console’s master clock. 2) Set the console’s internal clock to be slave of the console’s Dante card. Using Dante controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock.
