Create is an explorative movement within Bang & Olufsen. Our mission is to inspire and be inspired by the global creative community.

Beocreate 2

Beocreate 2 is the software suite for Beocreate 4-Channel Amplifier. It replaces the old setup tool and system software shipped with the ReCreate project in 2018. It has been redesigned from the ground up to be more flexible, more reliable and future-proof.

Beocreate Connect is a new companion application (for Mac + Windows) that automatically and instantly discovers all Beocreate 2 sound systems on the network, without typing a single IP address.

Beocreate 2 is bundled with HiFiBerryOS as its official user interface. On systems that use other HiFiBerry sound cards, the user interface carries HiFiBerry branding.

Main Features

  • A flexible front-end for Beocreate 4-Channel Amplifier and other HiFiBerry sound cards.
  • Upcycle vintage Bang & Olufsen speakers or build your own, custom sound system.
  • Beautifully crafted, responsive, browser-based user interface that works within the local network. Dark mode is supported.
  • See what's playing, control playback and volume.
  • Supports multiple sources/streaming protocols that can be set up in one place (powered by HiFiBerry AudioControl).
  • Speaker presets designed by Bang & Olufsen acousticians specifically for select loudspeaker models.
  • Quickly customise the sound with Beosonic and listening modes.
  • Parametric equaliser for general sound design and each output channel – ideal for crossovers and tuning custom loudspeakers.
  • Manage Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections.
  • Extension architecture for easy expandability and future-proofing.
  • Based on Node.js.

Legacy Code

The original code for the project (SigmaTCPDaemon, SigmaClientTool Beocreate Server and the bang-olufsen.com-based setup tool) has been archived under the beocreate1 branch.

The old DSP programs are in the Speakers directory, but please note that these aren't fully compatible with Beocreate 2. Beocreate 2 comes built in with the speaker presets for these models.
