Yamaha Commercial Audio has released Audinate's Dante-MY16-AUD cards. The cards are compatible with Yamaha digital MY16 card slots.

According to the company, the Dante-MY16-AUD card is based on Audinate's Dante IP audio networking solution. The card can be used to network low-latency, sample-accurate audio to Dante-networked equipment, such as Yamaha mixing consoles, DME processors, and TXn power amplifiers, which have MY16 card slots. Each card reportedly provides 16 bidirectional audio channels (16 channels at 48 kHz or eight channels at 96 kHz) over Gigabit Ethernet with real-time network redundancy. Multiple cards can be used to support more channels.

Each Dante-MY16-AUD card includes a license for Audinate's Dante Virtual Soundcard, a software program that Yamaha officials say enhances a PC or MAC into a networked source or destination audio device. When combined with most digital workstation software program, including Nuendo and Cubase, the computer can then be used as a recording platform–no additional hardware sound cards needed.

"[Shipping Audinate's Dante-MY16-AUD cards] allows us to provide an alternative networking solution and be responsive to many customers who have requested Dante support in Yamaha products," said Kazunori Kobayashi, general manager of Yamaha Commercial Audio, in a statement.

The Dante-MY16-AUD card is available with an MSRP of $649 and comes with a licensed copy of the Dante Virtual Soundcard, capable of up to 64x64 bidirectional channels.
