Dante Controller

Dante Controller is a free software application that enables you to route audio and configure devices on a Dante network. With automatic device discovery, one-click signal routing and user-editable device and channel labels, setting up a Dante network couldn’t be easier. See the overview for more detail on Dante audio networking.

Dante Controller is much more than just a configuration and routing matrix. Dante Controller provides essential device status information and powerful real-time network monitoring, including device-level latency and clock stability stats, multicast bandwidth usage, and customized event logging, enabling you to quickly identify and resolve any potential network issues. You can also quickly and easily backup, restore, move, and reuse Dante network configurations using Presets, and edit Dante routing configurations offline.

Beginning with version 4.2, Dante Controller includes Dante Updater. Dante Updater connects to a library of firmware updates from manufacturers of Dante-enabled products and makes it easy to keep your products up-to-date. Devices are automatically discovered and correlated with the proper firmware for error-free deployment of updates. With Dante Updater, you can quickly and safely take advantage of all the latest features and capabilities of Dante as well as the manufacturers' product updates..

Dante Controller is available for Windows and macOS.
