SPAT’s very high-end object-oriented mixing engine now comes in a version for the rest of us.
FLUX:: Immersive has a new, more affordable version of SPAT, called SPAT Revolution Essential. It’s an immersive audio mix engine that… we’ll let them describe it:
“[a] real-time Immersive audio mix engine… with object-based and perceptual approaches, making it possible to intuitively position audio-sources in spaces, real or virtual, and let the acoustic signature of the room build the desired depth, with full automation of the spatialization parameters independently from the output format.”

SPAT Revolution Essential supports ASIO and Core Audio audio interfaces, with low latency options, as well as networked audio.
