Revelator: Quick Loopback Setup on Mac - Multi-Device mode

Updated June 9, 2021


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


When in Multi-Device mode, Revelator will show as 3 separate devices on macOS.  This mode allows for different applications to use different mix streams. Universal Control can used to balance the levels of the different audio streams. If however you wish to record the stream's individually in Studio One  the three streams must first be combined into an aggregate device. 


1. Open Universal Control and switch Device Mode to "Multi"




2. Open Audio Midi Setup, located in /Applications/Utilities, and click the plus sign to "Create Aggregate Device"




3. Setup the Aggregate Device in this order: Revelator, Revelator Stream Mix A, Revelator Stream Mix B (Drift correction should be on)




4. Open Studio One. On the Start Page, click on Configure Audio Device.




5. Open Studio One and select Aggregate Device as the Audio Device.




6. Use the Revelator Template inside Studio One 5 for a quick setup. (More tips are located in the template). To open this, select the Interfaces tab, scroll down to Revelator, then click OK. 




7. A new session will open with three tracks created for the three audio streams.




8. The Next step is to configure the AUdio I/O settings. To do this Navigate to the menu bar at the top of the page and select Song -> Song Setup




9. Click on Audio I/O Settings and Select Inputs. By default, a Mono Input should be added for the Main Mic. Click under the Squares corresponding to Stream Mix A and B to add Stereo Inputs for these two tracks. 




10. All audio sent to the Virtual Mixes will now be recorded on to the corresponding tracks. You can set the level of the various audio sources sent to these Audio Streams in Universal Control Using the Software Mixer.
