Hardware Recommendations and requirements

Single Computer (Creative Station with DAW and SPAT Revolution)

Single computer systems can provide an excellent option for portability but come with the importance of having a performing computer. As SPAT Revolution comes with a 3D graphic engine where audio objects are manipulated, GPU resources are required.

Apple based recommended hardware:

*SPAT Revolution is fully supported to Silicon / ARM Apple computers via the Rosetta binary translator.

Software License Requirements

To use the software, an iLok.com user account is required (the iLok USB Smart Key is not required, authorization can be made to hardware machines).

Certified configurations (SPAT Revolution v.22.02.50151)

These configurations are tested and validated on a computer dedicated to SPAT Revolution. All other applications have been closed, and computer has been optimized as indicated below.

Computer optimization:

The below configurations have been tested at the worst scenario, with the reverberation at the highest density for all rooms, all sources active with reverberation and all sources in full movement using OSC input. WFS and Binaural PanType are used as reference as they are the most processing heavy techniques.

!> Processing can be different according to the used HRTF. Kemar HRTF were used for these tests.

!> In the case of the Dante Virtual Soundcard, the network latency, reported into SPAT, have been set to 10ms.
