We have a solution for you! Take the ZYLIA microphone, connect it to your laptop and start streaming your home concert or solo session to the world.

In the situation you are playing with a band and would like additional control to mix the audio from the ZM-1, you can also apply the following workflow for streaming:
On the track receiving input from the ZM-1, add ZYLIA Studio PRO plugin.
Remember to disable the track master send
In ZYLIA Studio Pro plugin, add virtual microphones. You are able to add as many necessary but the output will be 2 channels only.
Remember to position the microphones and play with the plugin settings for better results.
Add equal amount of tracks to the number of virtual microphones created.
Route the signal from the ZM-1 multichannel track to the tracks created.
4.1 – Click the routing button
4.2 – Click add new receive and choose the track with the ZM-1 input.
4.3 – Choose the virtual microphone channel to receive
4.4 – Do this process for all the virtual microphone created.
Mix the separated tracks do your liking, change levels, add EQ/FX, etc
Since we are using the live input for streaming, we recommend to do the mixing based on the streamed output.
Add a new track and route the signal from the separated tracks to this track. Once again, do this by clicking the routing button, add new receive, select the target track and choose Audio 1-2 to 1-2.
To the same track add the ReaStream VST to the FX bus (if you don’t have it installed you are able to download this free plugin at: https://www.reaper.fm/reaplugs/ ).
In the ReaStream plugin, send the audio signal. In the identifier field you may leave it at default but it should be consistent in the OBS as well ( more information mentioned in OBS tutorial. )
In blue: here you can send more audio channels to OBS. Which can also be used for sending First Order Ambisonics (replace ZYLIA Studio PRO with ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter plugin).
Continue the setup in OBS (Receiving ReaStream signal in OBS)
