GENERAL SETTINGS

Device Name

  • This is the unique zeroconf device name.  Other devices see this device name.
    Reboot is not required for the change to apply.  Equivalent to device Setup menu > Network > Device Name (Horus/Hapi)

Audio Configuration 

  • Sample Rate : current sample rate (44100-48000- 88200-96000-176400-192000-352800-384000)
  • Frame size (@1Fs) :current frame size (64 - AES67/48 - 32 -16 - 12 -6).
    Note that available frame size values may not be available or differ according to the device and/or firmware.

Session Sinks Global

  • Safety Playout Delay (@1Fs) : additional playout delay.  The value is described at 1Fs (44.1-48 kHz) in samples.
    For example, if the value is 10, the additional playout delay will be 20 at 2Fs (88.2-96 kHz), 40 at 4FS (176.4-192 kHz),...
  • SSM (requires IGMP v3) : Source-Specific Multicast.
    If you activate this option, make sure your network switch supports and is configured for IGMP V3.

Network

  • ST2022-7 Mode : Activate / deactivate ST2022-7 mode - only applicable to Merging devices supporting such feature.

Interface 1-2

Note : depending on the device and firmware, only Interface 1 might be available.

  • Link : status
  • Name : information only - can't be modified
  • Type : defines the type of IP V4 address used (Zeroconf - DHCP - Static)
  • Address - NetMask - Gateway : only available if Type is set to Static.
    Reboot is required for changes to apply.

PTP

Global 

  • PTP Domain : allow to define a specific PTP domain, usually when several PTP masters are required in the same network (default value for Merging devices and programs is 0).

    Expand
    titlePTP Domain support is available since the following versions

    MassCore : Pyramix v11.1.5 / Ovation v7.1.5

    Anubis : firmware v1.0


  • DSCP : PTP DSCP (46 : PTP AES67 / 48 : PTP RAVENNA)

Master

To modify the PTP setting, you must first tick the "Manual" checkbox.

  • Priority 1 is the main priority value.
  • Class : Device class.  This value should not be modified.
  • Accuracy : cant be modified.
  • Priority 2 is only used if the other parameters do not allow to elect a PTP master.
  • GMID : Current GrandMasterID (PTP Master)
  • Slave only  : forces the Merging device to always be PTP slave.

  • Delay Mech.:  PTP Profile related - E2E or P2P
  • Announce : PTP Profile related - PTP announcement interval (1 - 2 - 4 - 8 -16 seconds)

  • Sync : PTP Profile related (0.0625 - 0.125 - 0.25 - 0.5 seconds)

Status 

  • ASIOClock Host : Master ASIO Clock device IP address (only displayed for Merging RAVENNA ASIO device).
  • GMID : Current GrandMasterID (PTP Master) 
  • Lock : shows if the device is locked to PTP (Locked -Locking - Unlocked)
  • Interface 1-2 :
    Note : depending on the device and firmware, only Interface 1 might be available.
    PTP status
    Master : Device is Master
    Slave : Device is Slave
    Listening : The interface is not used for synchronization.

  • Statistics (since firmware 3.9.3)
    The graph is only active for slave devices.
    The graph shows the device delta against the current Master PTP clock.
    Not available for ASIO device.


Tip
PTP Priority value :
1 is the highest priority, 255 the lowest one.
Merging devices are by default using Priority 127 when set as PTP Master and 255 when PTP slave


SESSION SOURCES

Configuration

  • Create session button :  create a new session source
  • Enabled : enables the selected source (active by default)
  • IO : select the physical input (when applicable)
  • Name : Source name
  • Output Interface(s) : select the Source output network Interface 1, 2, or Interfaces 1&2 (ST_2022-7)
    Note : depending on the device and firmware, only Interface 1 might be available.
  • Auto-unicast - retrieve unicast address+port from sink (RTSP) : automatically retrieve the sink (listener) IP address for unicast connection. 
    This feature only applies to Merging Technologies devices.  See this page for further details

    Expand
    titleAuto-Unicast support is available since the following versions

    Horus - Hapi : firmware v3.9.2
    Anubis : firmware v1.0
    MassCore : Pyramix v12.0 / Ovation v8.0
    Ravenna ASIO : v12.0
    ALSA : v1.0
    CoreAudio / Virtual Audio Device : v2.0.40016


  • Address : stream multicast address for the selected Output Interface
    Note : specific destination port can be manually set in the address field (for example: 239.1.66.25:9000
  • Address sec : stream multicast address for the other Output Interface.
    If only one Output Interface is available, the field is greyed out.
  • User defined : allow to manually enter or modify the multicast IP address.
    Note : user defined checkbox is activated automatically when entering a multicast address manually
  • TTL : Time to Live (also called Hop Limit)  - this value should not be modified
  • Payload type : RTP Payload type - this value should not be modified
  • Codec : L24 - L16 - DSD64 - DSD64_32 - DSD128 - DSD128_32 - DSD256 (bit rate).  Note that those values are sampling rate dependent.
  • Frame size (samples) : frame size of the current source.
  • DSCP : audio DSCP (34: RTP AES67 / 46: RTP Ravenna)
  • RefClk PTP traceable: This feature is useful when you want to connect a stream through Internet (e.g. with two PTP Masters (GPS) at each locations), it allows to make connections with devices locked to different traceable PTP Masters.
    See also Ignore refclk GMID - accept source locked to any PTP master on the Session Sinks section below.
  • Channels
    Channel count : number of channels in the stream.  The drop down menu allows to select specific channels if the number of channels is smaller than the selected module channel capability (limitation : channels must be contiguous)
    The URL of the SDP of this session is :  allows to save the Session Description into a file (useful for specific third party devices if manual SDP has to be provided).
    Note : Devices in 2022-7 mode will produce a 2022-7 SDP, containing both interfaces session parameters. 
    If you load such SDP in a non-2022-7 device, only the session parameters from interface1 will be used.


SESSION SINKS

Configuration

  • Create session button :  create a new session sink
  • IO : select the physical output (when applicable)
  • Label : Sink name
  • Source : drop down menu to select a source (both sap and bonjour advertised sources are listed).
    Manual : allow to manually enter a SDP
  • Delay (samples) : playback delay.
    0 is automatic delay (automatic delay works for Merging Technologies devices).
    For non-Merging devices, if set to 0, the playout delay is calculated based on the SDP a=framecount value.
    In any case, the frames must be time aligned; all devices must run an integer number frames from time zero (epoch).
  • Ignore refclk GMID - accept source locked to any PTP master :  This feature is useful when you want to connect a stream through Internet (e.g. with two PTP Masters (GPS) at each locations), it allows to make connections with devices locked to different traceable PTP Masters.
    See also RefClk PTP traceable on the Session Sources page.
  • Relaxed check - accept source with lower channel count : allow to connect to a source that have less channels.
  • Channels Channel count : number of channels in the stream.  The drop down menu allows to select specific channels if the number of channels is smaller than the selected module channel capability (limitation : channels must contiguous)

Session Info

    The Sink is trying to connect to the Source.
    :
    The Sink is connected to the Source.
    : The Sink can't connect to the source, see the error message for details.

    Global RTP Status :
    In 2022.7 Mode, the Global RTP Status displays the status for both interfaces.
    In non 2022.7 Mode, the Global RTP Status will be the same as the interface status.
    : Waiting for connection
    : Currently receiving
    : Stream is muted, see Interface RTP Status for further details.
    : 2022.7 Mode only - one of the interface is not receiving RTP packets properly.

    Session name : defined in SDP (usually the same as the source name)
    Playout Delay : current playout delay on the selected sink in samples (and ms).
    RTSP Host : connected source IP

  • Interface 1-2
    Note : depending on the device and firmware, only Interface 1 might be available.

    0x01: wrong RTP sequence id
    0x02: wrong RTP SSRC
    0x04: wrong RTP payload type
    0x08: wrong RTP SAC
    0x20 stream has been muted 
    0x40: Horus implementation - an incoming stream is muted

    Important note : this field is incremental, meaning the error numbers will sum.

INS/OUTS

Allows to change the name of module's specific Inputs and / or Outputs. (when applicable)
