Allen & Heath Unveils New DT Preamp Control App For Its Dante I/O Expanders

by | Feb 26, 2021 | Audio, Gear, News, Production

Allen & Heath has announced the new DT Preamp Control application (app) that’s designed to allow the company’s Audinate Dante I/O expanders to be used with any Dante audio network.

The free application, compatible with Windows and macOS, provides control of multiple DT168 and DT164-W expanders connected to Dante-equipped third-party digital mixers and sound management systems. It brings application of Allen & Heath’s preamps and 96 kHz conversion to a host of new users in live, broadcast, install and studio applications.

The portable DT168 with carry handle and the wall-mount DT164-W are designed for distributed networks where high-channel-count Dante or AES67 I/O is required. The IEC armoured cable or DC power options for the DT164-W make it suitable for in-wall mounting and stage pockets in permanent installations.

“Since the launch of these products we have received numerous requests for extending their use beyond Allen & Heath mixing systems,” says Martijn Verkerk, Technical Marketing Manager at Allen & Heath. “Houses of worship, university campuses, and arenas have all showed an interest in deploying our Dante solutions alongside their existing audio system, and DT Preamp Control enables that.”
