ReaVolution and Reaper

At the basis of ReaVolution is the acclaimed DAW software REAPER, developed by digital audio technology company Cockos, widely acknowledged as a reliable full-featured DAW with extensive customization possibilities.

With its high track channel count capabilities and its flexible routing, REAPER is ideally suited for immersive audio creation.

The default configuration of REAPER is something of a blank slate when it comes to working with Immersive sound workflows. ReaVolution provides a starting point and customization for successful customization of REAPER and Spat.

The ReaVolution Package

The ReaVolution package includes macros (scripts), customized toolbars, and system behaviour preference enhancements. The goal of ReaVolution is to address some of the most common issues by offering a new set of functions dedicated to Immersive audio production, and to provide a more cohesive starting point for users coming from other DAWs.

Audio Stream Library

ReaVolution comes with a set of actions that automates requirements for sending audio from REAPER to SPAT Revolution, and works in pairs with the Audio Stream library to support any channel configuration. It uses the Audio Stream library to support any kind of channel arrangement and provide full compatibility with an Immersive sound workflow.

This library is the core of ReaVolution, designed to provide a way to overcome Reaper’s limitations on track formats. By default, Reaper limits track channels to even numbers. But in the real world, there are numerous audio streams that come in odd channel numbers, mono being the really obvious one.

The library combines a JSFX called “Audio Stream” along with some other scripts. This JSFX is present on every track and is used to store and display the stream type to the user. It supports the same stream formats as Spat Revolution: Channel-based, HOA, Ambisonics, Binaural and Transaural.

ReaVolution workflows in REAPER

Identify Streamtype

With the ReaVolution Audio Stream library it’s really quick and easy to set up the stream type required for a track in order to automatically send the audio from REAPER to SPAT Revolution, and the other way around.

Simplify Routing

ReaVolution is facilitating the routing between REAPER and SPAT Revolution allowing the set up of connections in seconds instead of dozens of minutes, using Spat Revolution Local Audio Path, or hardware connection between two computers.

Editing Experience

ReaVolution introduces an optional audio editing  experience, more similar to how editing is done in various other DAWs, all to help with the transition to REAPER. More information about this can be found in the ReaVolution user guide.
