4.4 Routing Matrix

As you can imagine routing and patching high density channel counts can get complicated, especially when setup time is a critical factor. When it comes to that on location, in a virtual space or in the studio, the SPAT routing matrix is there to help. You will find it at many points throughout the Environment Setup graph.

In a real setup, the channel based outputs from SPAT can be patched to their corresponding speakers by simply clicking around a Matrix and routing the correct signal to the correct output. In a virtual sound system, or when channels need to be remapped, the Matrix will be an invaluable workflow tool. We have found it to be much less complicated than trying to handle virtual cables on screen.

Spat Revolution simplifies multichannel configuration in real and virtual spaces.

The speaker configuration editor, clear channel labelling and the built-in routing matrix system all help to make the process of signal routing, checking and debugging more straight-forward on location, in the virtual mix and in the studio.
