Sheaf has released a new plug-in that allows you to stream audio directly from your DAW to your phone.
Named Remoter, the plug-in is designed to speed up the process of checking mixes on as many devices as possible, as it promises to stream audio directly from your DAW to connected devices with a web browser.
Users will simply insert the plug-in, start the server, and scan the QR code to open the supporting web app, then press connect to start streaming.
Additional features include support for lossless audio streaming, as well as the highest bitrate Opus encoded audio streaming option, though it is not yet supported by iOS.
Despite this, Sheaf has warned users that lossless streaming relies on a deprecated browser feature. Unfortunately, if browser vendors decide to actually remove the feature, lossless streaming will no longer work.
On a more positive note, Sheaf has also claimed that latency on Remoter is low enough for users to make mix adjustments in real-time, meaning that you can configure the buffer size to find the right balance between latency and stability.
As well as this, Remoter allows for multiple simultaneous connections, meaning that several people could be listening to a mix on their phones simultaneously.
