Share stream DAW audio *Free*

Illico

Samuel Le Tonquèze
I would like to share with you a free solution for a live multi-studio over internet I used during the general sanitary containment.

This solution is simply based on VB-Audio VBAN product (Donationware). Then you can ear the remote DAW output on your local PC in high resolution (PCM-16bits-48kHz) with low latency (10ms). The audio is directly streamed over internet to your personal router, without any other server's solution. This solution can be bidirectional.
++ : high resolution, low latency, free
- - : unprotect udp stream

Example for one direction

1. Install VB-Audio Banana on Local and Remote PC DAW stations
for VoiceMeeter configuration, check youtube video. I personally use "Voice Meter Aux" for my Cubase inputs/outputs like this:

2. Testing your Internet bandwidth to check the feasibility
Local (France) : https://www.degrouptest.com/test-debit.php
International Test : http://speedtest.att.com/speedtest/

3. Identifing each router IP address on Internet

4. Open UDP port on Destination Router NAT/PAT (edit your router configuration)
Internal Port : 6980
External Port : 6980
Protocole : UDP
Destination IP : [LOCAL-IP-DAW-STATION] something like 192.168.0.12

5. Configure VBAN

On receive side you should have a message "1 Stream Detected".
The "Stream Name" should matched for enable it.
Set the public IP Address from your correspondent.
You should ear the remote DAW output stream !!
The same such configuration could be done for the other stream direction

Tips: First try locally between two of your own computers then try with a remote friend.
