Revelator io24: Using Multi Mode on Mac to record Skype and Google meet in Studio One

Updated May 6th, 2022


The Revelator io24 has two Virtual audio channels which provide robust routing options for end-users. They can also be used to record audio from other applications directly into Studio One.

On Mac, the Revelator IO 24 can be used in Single-mode or in Multi-Mode. When in Multi-Mode, the Revelator IO 24 will appear as 3 separate audio interfaces (Revelator IO 24, Revelator IO 24 Virtual A, and Revelator IO 24 Virtual B).

To record the three of the Audio devices simultaneously in Studio One these three devices must be consolidated into one by creating an aggregate device. 


To do this, open the Audio Midi Settings.




Click the + button in the bottom left corner to add a new aggregate device and name this device. 






Tick the box next to Revelator IO 24, Revelator IO 24 Virtual A and Revelator IO 24 Virtual B to add the three devices in this order.




That's it. You have created a new aggregate device.


Next open Studio One. On the start page click Configure Audio Device




Click the drop down menu and select your aggregate device. 




Your Revelator IO 24 should now appear on the start page as your audio device. 




Open a new song using the Revelator IO 24 template. 




This will create a new song with a Stereo channel created for inputs 1/2 and two mono channels for the two inputs separately. You can keep these channels or remove any tracks you are not using. It will also create tracks for the two Virtual audio streams. 




The next step is to configure the inputs. To do this go to the menu bar in the top left of the screen and click Song -> Song Setup -> Audio I/O and select Inputs.




Here, click add Stereo to Add a stereo input for Inputs 1/2 and then Add Mono to add a Mono Input for Inputs 1 & 2 individually. Then, click Add Stereo again to add a Stereo Input for the Two Virtual Streams. In Studio One, these will appear as Mix A and Mix B. You can also rename these Inputs if you wish. Click Apply and then click OK.




Finally, add two Stereo tracks and set the inputs to Mix B and Mix C. This means the audio from Mix B and C will now be recorded to separate tracks. The audio sent to these tracks can be controlled from Universal Control. 




Finally, since the audio will be monitored from Universal Control, please ensure to turn off input monitoring in Studio One to avoid feedback loops. If you have selected the IO24 template then this should happen automatically. 






Studio One i s now ready to record audio from the interface itself and the two virtual streams. Next we need to route each of the desired applications to separate Virtual audio streams.



1. From the Skype menu, go to “Audio & Video Settings.”




2. Under Microphones, select “Revelator IO 24” This will route the audio from your inputs 1/2 on your Revelator IO 24 to your Skype call. Under Speakers, select Revelator IO 24 Virtual A from the Speaker menu. This will route the output from Skype back to the Virtual A audio stream. 




Google Meet:


1. Open Google Meet and click the Settings Cog in the top right of the screen.



2. Click Audio and Select Revelator IO 24 as your Microphone. This will route the audio from your inputs 1/2 on your Revelator IO 24 to Google Meet. 




3. Select Revelator IO 24 Stream Mix B as your Speaker in Google Meet. This will route the Audio from Google Meet to the Virtual B audio stream. 


Universal Control:


The last step is to ensure the audio streams are operating independently of each other. Open Universal Control and click on the Revelator IO 24 symbol to open the Software Mixer. 


Click on Mix B and turn down or Mute all faders except for Virtual A. This will ensure the audio from Skype is the only thing being sent on Mix B. 




Click on Mix C and turn down or Mute all faders except for Virtual B. This will ensure the audio from Google Meet is the only thing being sent on Mix C. 





That's it. you can now record from Inputs 1/2 on the interface while recoding the two virtual streams separately.
