you could get the Dante expansion and have 64 channels (or maybe only 32… I’m not sure) at 4ms over ethernet. https://www.audinate.com/products/software/dante-virtual-soundcard?lang=en

I have tested that option but in order to get low latency you need to get an expensive thunderbolt/pci dante interface for the computer too, such as a focusrite rednet for example.

However, that would increase the price substantially.

Connecting the h9000 straight to the ethernet port of the computer using audinante’s driver ‘DVS’ will NOT give you 4ms latency. It’s more about 10ms to 15ms min and at a very low sample buffer..

A Thunderbolt expansion card for the H9000 would be way much cheaper and we wouldn’t need additional interfaces to achieve lower latency for tracking and real time live performance,, as well as minimising the size and complexity of the rig, which is great if you play live..
