Computers on an Axia Livewire can send and receive audio to/from other Livewire-enabled hardware via the Axia IP Audio Driver. This is fairly easy to setup. However, it is not obvious how to setup backfeeds within the setup utility.
If you have Problems under macOS High Sierra 10.13 or Mojave 10.14 and your RME Audio Interface is not being recognized, TotalMixFX can’t be opened or having issues with Sample Rate in the.
Thankfully it is possible, albeit with a little messing around. Mach3 xbox plugin.
Why would you want to have a backfeed on a PC? Typically an audio playout computer wouldn’t need a backfeed. However, sometimes you need to run VoIP applications such as Skype.
Step 1: Find the Multicast IP Address
All Axia audio is transported around your LAN as multicast packets. Each “stream” gets it’s own Multicast IP Address, in the format 239.192.XXX.YYY (regular streams) or 239.193.XXX.YYY (backfeed streams). You can see here that backfeed streams are differentiated by the number in the second octet (192 and 193).
To work out which stream IP Address you need, you can either:
- do the maths
- use the SDP generator, or
With the SDP Generator, fill in your stream number, and then look for the line “c=IN IP4 126.96.36.199“. This IP address is what you are after.
Step 2: Telnet into your IP Driver
The configuration of the IP driver needs to be done via TCP connection (Telnet is the easiest way to connect). Windows 7 and upwards doesn’t have a built-in Telnet client, so you can try PuTTY. Mac OS X has one built-in.
Open a telnet connection to 127.0.0.1, port 93 and then run these commands:
DST 2 ADDR:”239.193.XXX.YYY”
Substitute “2” for the destination channel on your driver, and XXX.YYY for the IP address you found in step 1.
After running these commands you should now be able to stream a backfeed in via your Axia IP Driver.
A new version of Axia Audio’s IP-Audio Driver for Windows is now available. Version 188.8.131.52 is an incremental upgrade that addresses several minor usability and performance issues. Anyone using a previous version is encouraged to obtain the update, which is available for free to registered users.
Axia’s IP-Audio Driver makes it possible to extract premium quality digital audio from a standard PC without soundcards. A PC with the IP-Audio Driver becomes an Axia “audio node.” Its Ethernet port connects directly to the Livewire network, and the Axia driver handles all necessary audio conversions. The PC can then send stereo audio to any network destination, and can record or audition any other network source, as well.
The IP-Audio Driver allows users to avoid the cost of the audio inputs (router or console) normally required by hard-wired routing systems. For broadcasters with highly-computerized studios, cost savings can be significant.
New features in Version 184.108.40.206 include an added audio recording path through the Windows Mixer for easier recording of local audio streams; re-ordered stream identifiers for easier configuration when using multiple-output audio playback or digital delivery systems; and enhanced interoperability with Windows Firewall.
The Axia IP-Audio Driver comes in two versions: a 1-input, 1-output version for use with audio editing workstations, and a 16-in/16-out version available directly from Axia delivery system partners.
Users of the single-stream IP-Audio Driver may download a software update from www.axiaaudio.com/downloads; users with the multi-stream version can obtain the update directly from their delivery system provider.
Migrating your old data to your new computer will make it possible for you to start working on your brand new Mac without missing a beat. If you are new to Mac, you can also migrate your old PC data. How to transfer your data from your old PC to your new Mac; Before you start. I just bought a new iMac today and I am trying to use Migration Assistant to move all my info on my Mac Pro to my new machine. The problem is that the Migration Assistant is getting stuck at the 'Looking for source' step, trying to find my old Mac with no success. Network Connection: Your new Mac, as well as the Mac or PC that contains the data you wish to transfer, must be on the same local network. The Migration Assistant only scans the local network, and won’t look beyond it for hosts to use as the source of the transfer. On your new Mac: Open Migration Assistant, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder. Click Continue. When asked how you want to transfer your information, select the option to transfer from a Mac, Time Machine backup, or startup disk. Transfer information to mac from pc looking for source pc.
