macOS AES67 & RAVENNA virtual audio device


  • RAVENNA latency can be set to 48 (AES 67) samples
    Note: effective latency depends on Application buffer size
  • The Virtual Audio Device can be used as default Audio Device and System (alert) Device.
  • Mac Parental Controls and Security Firewall should be switched OFF
  • Numbers of inputs and outputs available @ 1fs (44.1kHz / 48kHz) = 64 I/O
    Note: The number of I/Os could be less if the application does not support these numbers
