AoIP for Everyone.

Audio over IP does not need to be complicated or expensive. With the DARC Virtual Console, you can control any Dante network audio source. Mix, adjust levels, everything you need for an On-Air or production room console.

A Virtual Console designed for you.

Meet DARC, an intuitive, powerful Dante Virtual Console. It is a powerful mixing console that runs virtualized in a PC environment.

Designed to be easy to setup, and use, yet flexible and powerful for your needs today, and tomorrow.

Virtual Broadcast Console.

4, 8, 12 or 16 input channels.

3 Stereo output buses.

Simple & Configurable

The DARC Virtual Console can be ran as a stand alone unit, or in conjunction with an AoIP network with multiple studios. It will control any Dante enabled audio device on your LAN, whether it is a source connected to our Simple IP units, or any Dante device such as the Dante AVIO

Standalone Unit

As a standalone unit, you don't need a large AoIP network to utilize this brilliant board. Simply connect all your audio sources into one of our Simple IP boxes (or any Dante enabled device), then connect the Dante Virtual software onto the same network. Utilizing the Dante Controller software, you choose which sources to control, and away you go.

AoIP Configuration

Since DARC controls any Dante audio source, you can configure DARC to control any audio source on your LAN. This allows you to make your setup as large and complex as your studios require. Which also allows you to expand your operations in the future.

3 Output Buses

▪ PGM, AUD, UTL. DARC can assign output control to any output on your Dante network. This may be one of our Simple IP units, which has 4 stereo outputs per box.

▪ Monitor, Cue & Headphone outputs. Utilize the Cue function built in to the DARC software to play audio off-air through your monitor, cue or headphones. Monitor, Cue and Headphones all connect to your Simple IP unit.

▪ Mic Monitor Mute. Mic channels will automatically mute the monitor output and play audio through the headphones when activated. Talk back audio plays through headphones as well.
