Dante – Shure Dante Mic Control Panels

Applies to:

  • ControlSpace Designer software
  • ControlSpace EX-1280C

Each Dante®-enabled microphone from Shure has a control panel accessible from the Design View. Each microphone’s control panel is identical, apart from the number of microphone channels and the presence of per-channel LED buttons on the MXA310.
 

Connected
At the top of each control panel, there are two indicators labeled “Connected”. The Dante Connected indicator will illuminate when the microphone has been recognized on a Dante network. This indicates that the microphone is ready to communicate with other Dante devices, but does not reflect whether ControlSpace® Designer is currently online to the devices.
 

The Shure Control Connected indicator will illuminate when ControlSpace Designer has obtained an IP connection with the microphone. ControlSpace Designer will not have any control of the microphone unless this indicator is illuminated.
 

IP

Run the Shure Web Device Discovery application to detect the Shure devices on the network and determine the IP address of the microphone. Enter that IP address into the IP field.

 

 

Connect
After the microphone’s IP address has been entered, press the Connect button to begin controlling the microphone.

Launch Web App
Press the Launch Web App button to automatically open the Shure configuration web page in a browser window. This allows direct configuration of all the microphones’ configuration settings.

Identify
Press the Identify button to momentarily flash the indicator LED on the face of the microphone.

Mute
The Mute button will mute the audio output of the entire microphone.

LED

The master LED button allows the LED on the MXA910 or all LEDs on the MXA310 to be turned on or off.

Load Preset
The Load Preset button and the associated drop-down list may be used to recall configuration presets stored in the microphone.

Mute Color / Mute LED State
The Mute Color and Mute LED state controls configure the behavior of the indicator LED on the face of the microphone when the microphone is muted.

Unmute Color / Unmute LED State
The Unmute Color and Unmute LED state controls configure the behavior of the indicator LED on the face of the microphone when the microphone is muted.

Signal (per channel)
The Signal indicator for each channel will illuminate when that node of the microphone is picking up an audio signal.

dB / Fader (per channel)
The dB field and Fader for each channel control the level of that channel in the microphone’s AutoMix output. These controls have no effect on the individual channel outputs.

LED button (per channel)

The per channel LED button (MXA310 only) allows individual LEDs to be turned on or off.

Signal (AutoMix)
The AutoMix Signal LED will illuminate when there is an audio signal present at the output of the microphone’s internal mixer.

dB / Fader (AutoMix)

The dB field and Fader for the AutoMix output control the level of the AutoMix output.
