The festival is a classical music artist retreat. It used Iyo Dante 16.0M and Iyo Dante 16.16M with a Merging technologies Pyramix digital audio workstation.
The Iyo Dante is a family of microphone/line Dante AoIP interfaces in a 1U rack-mount format. Seven models provide various configurations of balanced analog audio inputs and outputs. They can be used in Dante network installations or be set to operate as AES67 devices for use in Livewire+ networks. They have an embedded web server, allowing configuration and monitoring of input and output levels.
Iyo Dantes were chosen by Johnathan Smith, audio video engineer for the Manhattan School of Music and former Audio Fellow of the New World Symphony. He told AudioScience that the units are cost effective and complimented them on their form factor, sound quality and web GUI.
