How to load a Tesira configuration file

Wrench_Bld.pngBefore you can tune or test a Tesira system it must be running a configuration.  These steps outline how to send a configuration to a Tesira system



Make sure you can see your devices on the network.

To send a file you must see your server class devices with the software. 

1. A good first step is to ping the devices

C:\Users\>Ping TesiraForte02408413

Pinging TesiraForte02408413.local [] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=64

Reply from bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=64

Reply from bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=64

Reply from bytes=32 time=2ms TTL=64


Ping statistics for

    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 2ms, Average = 1ms


For a more detailed view of device discovery see this tech note


Ensure that the devices are configured correctly for the network.

  1. From the Tesira Software Perform Device Maintenance - Network Settings:
    1. Set the Hostname.
    2. Set the Static IP and Dante IP 
    3. Enable 
    4. (Forte X only) - Set Port Mode
    5. Power cycle.



Verify that your DSPs are ready to accept a configuration

  1. Perform Device Maintenance to discover all devices with Tesira Software.
    1. Configuration Cleared,
    2. Verify same FW loaded.
    3. Device ID = 0
    4. Status Green.
    5. Set Date and time.
    6. Clear Logs.




Open your configuration file in the software

  1. Open the Configuration file. 
  2. Verify it pertains to the correct system


Assign your hardware in the equipment table

  1. Open the Equipment table and add devices for this system.


  1. Click on Host Name
  2. Select the Device for this System that matches the Device Class and Model.
  3. Repeat for all Devices that are part of this system.
  4. Remote expanders must have a proxy host assigned to them.


Compilation and sending the configuration

  1. Compile file check Output Window. 
  • The hardware should match what is in this system.

  • Compilation should have no issues.
  • Yellow text items in this window are blocks ignored by the compiler.
  • Red text items are things the compiler could not configure.


  • System Description can be edited separately from the file name.



  1. Always start all audio.


  1. Start the partition audio



Verify that your system is running audio
