<pp>If you do not have a Windows system, you can still use VA. Unfortunately, we are not experienced in building binary packages for other platforms than Windows, hence you will have to build it from the source code. For more information, read the <a href="developers.html#otherplatforms">developer section</a> and get help from the <a href="help.html#community">community</a>.

<br /><br>
A common alternative way is to run the VA server application on a dedicated remote Windows PC with a proper ASIO interface, and control it from any other platform. This way, you can use the Windows download package and you only have to build the remote control part of VA (the C++ interface libraries and/or bindings). You will require no further third-party libraries except for the binding interface you choose (usually Matlab or Python). You can also run a Jupyter notebook along with VA on the Windows machine and remotely control everything using a web browser on any mobile device connected to the same network.

To deliver your sound to a human listener, you can use different reproduction modules. The selection process depends on the available hardware and the rendering type, and also the computational power you can afford. Find below the tables indicating the <b>rendering and reproduction modules</b> shipped with VA. <br />
If what you want to do is not reflected by the available modules, you can also extend VA with your own module implementation. You can use generic calls to configure your components without modifying any interface and binding library, which is very helpful for prototyping. <br />

<h4>Controlling VA</h4>
<p>
The first question is: what kind of software do you usually use? There are bindings that make VA interfaces available in <b>Matlab</b>, <b>Python</b>, <b>Lua</b> and rudimentary functionality in <b>C#</b>. While many in the acoustics research area prefer Matlab, it is Python and especially the combination with Jupyter notebook that the open-source community will find convenient to use with VA. C# is your choice if you are planning to use <a href="start.html#unity">VA for Unity environments</a>, which is probably the lightest entry for those who are not familiar with either Matlab or Python scripting.

<br /><br />
Let's create a simple example scene for a binaural rendering. It requires a running VA server application on the same PC (if you have <a href="download.html">extracted the Windows binaries</a>, double-click on the <code>run_VAServer.bat</code> file in the root folder of VA).<br />
