LIVEMIX FIRMWARE v4.0
A new firmware update for Livemix is available. This update brings continued compatibility with current production CS-DUO and CS-SOLO units and compatibility with Dante Domain Manager. Please read ALL the instructions inside each update package before starting the update.
SHOULD I UPGRADE?
This is a fairly big update that changes how Livemix subscribes to Dante Channels. With this update, Dante Controller must be used for channel subscriptions. All Dante related screens are removed from the CS-DUO and CS-SOLO units. It is also a critical update to ensure continued compatibility with all current production Livemix components.
DO NOT UPDATE IF…
In order to be compatible with Dante Domain Manager, the latest Livemix update removes the ability to subscribe to channels and import Dante channels via the CS-DUO or CS-SOLO.
Do not update if you assign Dante channels with the Dante Assign tool on the CS-DUO or CS-SOLO. This update removes the ability to subscribe to Dante channels directly on the CS-DUO or CS-SOLO. Subscriptions will need to be set up on the free Dante Controller software.
Do not update if you use the CS-DUO or CS-SOLO to import channel names from the Dante network. The ability to import channel names has been removed in Livemix v4.0.
WHICH DANTE UPDATE DO I NEED?
To update your Dante Option Card, you will need the correct DNT file AND the Dante Updater from Audinate. Once the update has been performed, future Dante updates will use the Dante Controller. Dante update files have a “.dnt” extension. Ensure you have the correct DNT for your Dante card.
If you have a LM-DANTE-EXP (first version) use the LM-DANTE-EXP updater.
If you have a LM-DANTE-EXP2, you will need to determine which revision it is. Your version will be printed on a sticker on the back of the Livemix Dante Option Card. If your LM-DANTE-EXP2 has no sticker, it will most likely be the Rev A/B.
NOTE FOR APPLE SILICON USERS
At this time, the Dante Firmware Updater does not function under Rosetta. To update the Dante Firmware, please use the Dante Updater built into the Dante Controller. For detailed instructions click the link below.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
