Topic: AVB setup question
I am new to network based audio and I am currently trying to setup a recording room which can be accessed by several workstations at a time. So AVB seems to be perfect for that. However I am not sure I fully understand the routing / device needs of such a setup. So here is what I think how it works:
a) Recording room with AVB Tool sends mic preamp audio to the network and receives ie. audio stream for headphones back from the network
b) Any computer hooked up with the network can receive and send audio via the Digiface AVB.
c) Any computer using the Digiface AVB needs an audio interface to listen to this audio and potentially send back playbacks or talkback or what ever, which the AVB Tool can then receive and play back.
Is that correct so far?
- Now what happens if I need additional mic preamps in the recording room, how would those get intot the Digiface AVB as well?
- I am a Fireface UFX+ user, however I am not sure how I can combine the Digiface AVB audio with the UFX+ and I can not select two different audio interfaces in my DAW (afaik).
- What if a computer does not actually have an RME main audio interface, but something else, how wouldd the Digiface AVB audio be routed to a DAW then?
Any help what a typical small setup like this would look like would be super helpful.
