If I am using a 1240AD, can I connect a Yamaha Dante stage box to the network and use the I/O's?
Normally, Dante audio transmit channels should be able to be routed to any other Dante receiving channels or cards. In some cases it's with minimal to no control (i.e. mic/line level switching).
However, on Yamaha's website, they seem to list their stage boxes as compatible only with "Yamaha TF mixers with Dante cards".. So I can't guarantee compatibility with our Dante-enabled products. You could contact them for further detail on this specification, as the spec might only pertain to control over the input/output signals, and not audio subscriptions.
Hi JeffAlex2, Chris,
I can confirm that this is working solution. We have 1280C with 2 Yamaha's TIO stage boxes in our current project. Make sure you have the latest firmware on stage box and you can use Yamaha R-Remote software to control specific functions as gain and power. Channel mapping is done with Dante Controller, in CSD you just use the subscribed channels.
Thank you for confirming this. This is one good reason why a community forum is so useful. We all help each other out.
