Minimum System Requirements

Spatial Reality is an audio simulation platform that enables immersive and interactive sound experiences. Please keep in mind that it is processor-intensive software, so you'll need to make sure your system meets our minimum requirements. 


OS macOS 11.0+
(Big Sur, Monterey, Ventura)

64-bit Intel (up to 32 output channels)
Apple M1 & M2 processors (up to 64 output channels)

Disk space 10GB recommended (depends on content)
Network access

Direct Ethernet connection
(WiFi is not recommended)


A note about MacOS Upgrades:

When going through an OS upgrade, please note that Spatial's configurations may need adjustments. The below notes explain how device and network configurations are set up and how they may need to be adjusted from time to time.

    • Every physical hardware device that plugs into a Mac computer is labeled by the MacOS internal system to keep it organized. i.e . a USB C cable that is plugged in becomes a 'device' identified by the operating system.
    • These devices are generally labeled en0, en1, en8, etc.
    • When setting up Spatial Reality, you must select which 'device' is being used to connect to the network, and in some cases which 'device' is being used to handle AES67 streaming. 
    • Spatial recommends using the hardline Ethernet input to connect directly to the network versus a WiFi connection.
    •  When the MacOS updates, these 'device' names may change without warning. Spatial Reality does not recognize the change in device name and will remain using its previously set 'device' name. i.e. if the network is set to use the device "en0", it will continue to use whichever 'device' may now be labeled "en0". 
    • To solve this, you must open Reality settings and change the Network device after an upgrade.
