Dante Via is easy-to-use software that delivers unprecedented multi-channel routing of computer-based audio, allowing a wide range of applications and devices to be networked and interconnected, easily and inexpensively.
Expand your Dante network with Dante Via
Dante Via enhances any USB or Firewire audio device with network connectivity, allowing you to easily expand your Dante system with hundreds of readily available products using the drivers you prefer – ASIO or WDM on Windows and Core Audio on Mac. Simply connect your device and check "Enable Dante" in the Dante Via interface, and it's ready to connect with your entire network, unrestrained by short cable runs.
Route your applications
Dante Via isolates and routes audio to and from applications, up to 16 bidirectional channels each. Eliminate unwanted system audio sounds by choosing only the applications you wish to connect to your Dante network, and send their audio anywhere you need it. You can even send audio from different applications to different locations at once.
Route your applications
Use Dante Via to connect local headphones or speakers directly to a Dante network, so you can easily monitor Dante devices and channels from anywhere on the system with no need for dedicated hardware.

Dante Virtual Soundcard vs. Dante Via
Dante Virtual Soundcard is a robust, high channel count application with the single purpose of getting a large number of channels in and out of a computer, while Dante Via allows for a much more diverse set of devices and applications to be routed and networked, but at a lower channel count.
