Compatibility Notes

Latest Release 9/05/19 v. 2.0.6

Vantage 2.0.6 is optimized for use with the RF Explorer• Pro Audio Edition spectrum analyzer.  While Vantage is compatible with legacy RF Explorer models and firmware revisions, for best results we recommend the latest firmware for the Pro Audio Edition version 3.08.  Vantage is compatible with Mac OSX Catalina. 

The SiLabs driver must also be installed correctly or Vantage will not connect to the RF Explorer.

For video walkthroughs on driver configuration and firmware update procedure, please visit the Vantage Downloads Page here.   

If Vantage fails to connect to your RF Explorer, un-installing and re-installing the driver (and rebooting) is recommended, see instructions here.  The program must be authorized promptly after installation.  Go to System Preferences>Security & Privacy>General and click on the Authorize button.

Note: if upgrading from Vantage 1.0 you will need to delete the 1.0 application and install the new 2.0 release in its place

Live RF Scanning


Optimized for the RF Explorer Pro Audio Edition spectrum analyzer, Vantage delivers fast, real-time spectrum scans.  All changes can be made on-the-fly, without starting or stopping the connection. Launch Vantage and you're immediately scanning, no session setup or learning curve.

Vantage will also auto-save your scan ranges for quick recall in the scan dropdown menu.



Export Scan Data in CSV


Vantage supports CSV data file exports to industry leading frequency coordination programs including

  • Shure Wireless Workbench®
  • Sennheiser® Wireless System Manager
  • Professional Wireless Systems' Intermodulation Analysis System®  

Monitor Mode


Manually input or use the new import function to populate frequencies in the Monitor table. Set a dropout threshold and get a live view of signal levels across your wireless system at a glance.  A marker and label is placed at each frequency location along with a red or green status against the dropout threshold.    

Monitor mode works especially well on a dedicated secondary display during a show. With Vantage running you can keep an eye out for interference and signal dropouts before they wreak havoc on your wireless system.

Use Monitor mode pre-show to walk test wireless mics and IEMs to fine tune remote antenna placement, setting RF power levels or other system configurations.
