Revelator: Quick loopback setup for Mac - Single-Device mode

Updated June 9, 2021


PLEASE NOTE:  Install Universal Control to mix loopback layers on macOS


In Single-Device mode, the Revelator will show as a single 6 channel interface on macOS.  This mode is designed to be used with other applications to quickly record audio from another application in to your DAW. 


First open Universal COntrol and ensure that your Revelator is set to Single Mode. 




Next, open the program you wish to record audio from, for example Skype. In Single mode your Revelator will appear as a single device called Revelator. Set the Microphone and Speakers in Skype to Revelator.  




This will send all audio from Skype to the Playback channel in Your UC Mixer. 




The Main Mix is used for monitoring the audio while the Stream Mix outputs are used for loopback audio. In this example we will use Stream Mix A. Click on this output and ensure that the Playback channel is turned up. The fader on this channel can be used to control the level sent to Studio One. 




Next open Studio One and create a new song. For convenience you can select the Revelator template within Studio One. 




To ensure Inputs are correctly configured, click Song -> Song Setup -> Audio I/O Setup. This will open the audio I/O Matrix. Add a Mono Input for the Microphone itself and a stereo Input Stream Mix A or B This is the stream we will use to record the loopback audio. In the below example Stream Mix A is being used.




Next create a track for your Microphone and a stereo track for your Loopback audio. If you have selected the Revelator template this will be done automatically when the session is opened.




Audio from your Mic will be recorded to the Mic channel while the audio from skype will be sent to the Virtual A Channel.
