Flux :: SPAT Revolution Immersive mixing Tool

 Object-based and perceptual immersive mixing tools, SPAT Revolution is the unique standalone application providing artists, sound-designers and sound-engineers virtually any possibilities to design, create and mix an outstanding real-time immersive experience.

SPAT Revolution includes three plugins for integration to various DAW and host platforms. The Immersive Audio Revolution.

SPAT Revolution is available in two versions; the SPAT Revolution Essential with everything needed to get started with immersive creation, and the SPAT Revolution Ultimate version for advanced immersive creation and productions.

Bring a sense of space and depth to your mix with the next generation audio mixing concepts

A revolutionary object & perceptual immersive mixing tool redefining the way of mixing where you intuitively position objects in spaces and let the acoustic signature of the room build the desired depth

Bring your various audio sources as objects moving into a virtual space in a output format agnostic way while allowing you to create acoustic space (reverberation) with localized reflections.

It simply means spaciousness to your mix from multiple sound source formats supported.

Render for various deliverables

Audio is literally living a paradigm shift, moving beyond stereo to various spatial audio techniques.  At the core of SPAT Revolution is a desire not to impose on panning methods and spatialization techniques rather to offer a wide range of possibilities,  including panning techniques for working with audiences in wide areas not confined to traditional sweet spots for live and installation setups.

Being for improving the frontal resolution for concert diffusion, to immerse the audience with surround audio, to render to any channel-based or scene-based formats, to deliver spatial audio over headphones, SPAT Revolution simply opens up to the most advanced techniques and brings them to your fingertips.

Deliver a stable soundscape throughout an entire listening area with WFS

With today’s demand for the entertainment to completely immerse the audience in the experience, and for producing a stable soundscape image throughout an entire audience listening area, the distinctive WFS , Wave Field Synthesis technique for spatial audio reproduction is offered as a license add-on option to SPAT Revolution Ultimate offer.

WFS aims to reproduce the true physical attributes of a given sound field (the waves front) over an extended listening area, an approach that relies on delay and amplitude. It is deployed on collinear speaker systems (line of speakers in a frontal setting) and with qualified 2D/3D speaker arrangements surrounding the audience.

Designed to integrate into any workflow

Rapidly deploy and manage your object-based mix session using a simple setup wizard using your physical or virtual audio interface of choice as your hardware I/O or vastly expand your DAW’s capabilities using SPAT plugin suites (AAX, AU, VST) and audio pipe technology for software audio routing and parameters automation

Add remote integration using control devices, show control application, trajectory software and digital mixing consoles over the network, through the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol.
