DT Preamp Control



DT Preamp Control is a Windows / macOS application that allows remote control of multiple DT168 or DT164-W Dante expanders. Control of analogue gain, phantom power and Pad is provided per socket. The socket names are also displayed and can be edited in Dante Controller.

DT Preamp Control extends the applications of the DT168 and DT164-W expanders, not limited to Allen & Heath mixing systems or matrix processors. These include large distributed audio networks in venues, stadia and educational campuses, where high-channel count Dante I/O is required in multiple locations.



  • Remote control of DT168 and DT164-W
  • Control of preamp gain, +48V and Pad
  • Includes firmware updater for DT expanders
  • Network interface selection
