DirectOut presents several new updates at ISE2016

German connectivity specialists, DirectOut, will be presenting a number of updates to their existing product range at ISE 2016. All updates are available for download from the DirectOut website at

The first is updated firmware for DirectOut’s MONTONE.42 MADI-to-AoIP bridge based on RAVENNA audio networking technology. Fully AES67 compliant, the device is equipped with four MADI and two gigabit network ports. The new firmware supports 32 RAVENNA/AES67 compliant multicast streams. Up to 256 channels are available per stream and up to 256 channels are possible, making MONTONE.42 a highly versatile link for broadcast, live sound and studio applications.

New firmware is available for the M.1K2 scalable 16-port MADI router. M.1K2 offers a powerful routing matrix for up to 1024 x 1024 audio channels that fills the gap effectively between small-scale routing devices and large cross bar solutions. The new firmware now supports SNMP Simple Network Management Protocol (v1/v2). SNMP is used for monitoring essential device information such as power supply state; temperature; MADI signal/synchronization state.


Finally, a new version of the ANDIAMO Remote software is available, ANDIAMO Remote for OS X® with support for Avid’s EuCon protocol for Pro Tools users. While the ANDIAMO.MC may already be controlled via Pro Tools using the PRE protocol, integration of EuCon support provides enhanced parameter control for even greater versatility. For example, an S6 or Artist console from Avid now has access to phantom power, plus pad and gain control in 1dB increments as well as status feedback from the device.

ANDIAMO.MC is a high-end 32-channel mic preamplifier and AD/DA MADI converter. Featuring 32 line level outputs and a full MADI routing matrix, mic level signals are converted into AMDI digital format before being output in balanced line level analogue format for monitoring or stage returns. Sophisticated design and a high level of integration have resulted in a compact, easy-to-handle 2U 19” form factor, ideal for studios, OB vans or other live recording environments where rack space is limited.
