Audinate, the Portland, Ore.-based developer of the professional AV-industry Dante AV-over-IP solution, announced the availability of transferrable licenses for the Dante Virtual Soundcard audio interface software. This new license type allows users to easily move a license from one computer to another.
Dante Virtual Soundcard runs on Windows and macOS computers and provides an audio interface to applications for up to 64 Dante-enabled channels on the connected network. It is used extensively in recording and live events, ingesting and delivering 100% lossless audio with minimal latency.
Previously, the Virtual Soundcard installations were locked to a single computer as per the license agreement. The new transferable license option allows a user to overcome that limit and move their license from one computer to another with ease. This is especially useful when purchasing new computers, using disk images to deploy machines, or if a repair causes significant hardware changes to a computer.
The new transferable license option is available for new purchases and is also offered as an upgrade to existing DVS single machine licenses. The cost of a Dante Virtual Soundcard transferable license is $79.99 USD, while the cost of a non-transferable single machine license is $49.99 USD. Single machine licenses may be upgraded to transferable for USD $30 each.
