    Dante and a Symetrix DSP Setup

    I'm new to Dante and am setting up a TC1, VS4000 and a few Zoom servers running Scan Converter and Virtual Input.

    I've spent several hours with a Symetrix engineer setting up a Prism 4x4 DSP. We have 20 stereo Dante inputs going to a mixer, then to 20 Dante outputs. The mixer has all the channels routed to all the other channels except to itself to provide a mix-minus.

    I've then set the Symetrix DSP to let the Dante Controller app manage the audio routing.

    I have Premium Access and can transmit the TC1 Sound out to the DSP using the Supplemental Output Device to Virtual Sound Card, but it appears to be pre-fader which is not usable. Am I correct that the Supplemental Output Device to VSC is pre-fader?

    I'm still working out the flow from the VS4000 and Zoom servers in relation to the TC1. Do I send their output to the TC1 and the go out to the DSP or just use the DSP and route all the outputs from there (I have always had trouble getting my head around audio routing). I've been working with it for a couple of days and haven't found the right combination yet.

    I use VB-Cable on the Zoom servers to get the speaker to the mic to Scan Converter and the return from NDI Virtual Input.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    I have it all working now. The TC1 Sound/DDR Dante out routing is pre-fader so you have to use an AUX or Master out to get post fader.

    Photo's of the Prism's Composer layout below.


    I've enabled DSCP QoS per Symetrix and Yamaha recommendations. So far it seems to be working but I haven't stressed the network yet with multiple Zoom servers.
    Any advice on QoS settings with Dante and NDI (Scan Converter and Virtual Inputs) on the same network switch (Cisco SG350-28p)?

    Thanks,
    Rob
