Changing Settings

The settings that you configured during initial setup can be changed through the Status Bar Menu → Settings.

Computer Settings

Some of the system settings that can be modified:

  • Change your computer name.

    Note: changing your computer name through Spatial Reality changes it globally.

  • Recommended power settings so your computer can recover and start Spatial Reality again after a power failure. 
  • Launch Spatial Reality upon restart. You can check status, change settings, and manage Spatial Reality from the status bar menu.
  • The computer Device ID can be found right under the computer name. 




Network Settings

Select the network interface you would like to use for Spatial Reality. To use Spatial Control and Spatial Studio later, you need to ensure all 3 applications are running on devices connected to the same subnet. We recommend using a direct ethernet connection for optimal performance.




Note: if you are using networked audio equipment (e.g. for AES67 streaming) — we recommend setting up a separate network for audio.

When upgrading your MacOS software, you may need to reconfigure your hardware and software settings in Spatial Reality. You can learn more about upgrades here.


Audio Interface 

Select the audio interface Spatial Reality should be configured to use. If you’re using a virtual soundcard — ensure that you have set up the audio routing to the correct hardware device. You can also use multiple hardware interfaces together by setting up an aggregate device.



Note: If the specified audio interface becomes unavailable later (virtual soundcard is not running, or hardware device is powered off or unplugged) — Spatial Reality engine will not start up properly. This may make your entire computer group unavailable for playing any Scenes in Spaces.

The unique identifier of the audio interface may change if it is plugged into a different port on the computer, and Reality Engine will not automatically detect it. If this happens, you will need to reconfigure your Audio Interface in Reality Settings. 


AES67 Streaming 

AES67 is a widely adopted standard developed by the Audio Engineering Society that defines how to stream audio over a network. You can use an external sound source, stream it into Spatial Reality using AES67, and create content that utilizes the AES67 streams as sound objects. 

To enable AES67 input streaming for Spatial Reality:

  1. Make sure you have properly set up your external hardware to transmit AES67 streams.
  2. On your computer running Spatial Reality, select an appropriate network interface to listen to the AES67 streams (we recommend setting up a separate audio network that is different from your regular network).
  3. Check “Enable Streaming”. 

Note: If you have multiple computers in your computer group — you must enable AES67 streaming in Spatial Reality for all of those computers.





Configure if you want to automatically forward crash reports and logs to Spatial. You can also download your logs and attach them to a support ticket if you need assistance with an issue.




Repair, Reset Configuration, Uninstall

We would hate to see you go. But if you ever need to reset the configuration for this computer or uninstall Spatial Reality — you can do that from the Settings page.



(Spatial Reality app 1.4.0 or later)

Restores Spatial Reality to a known good state.

Reset configuration Removes this computer from your computer group. Any Spaces that contain speaker channels from this computer will not be usable anymore until the Spacemap is edited.

You can sign-in and set this computer up again with a fresh configuration.

Removes the computer from the computer group and then completely removes the Spatial Reality application.


Note: You must be an account owner or an admin to perform any of the actions listed above.
