Jeversi Software has released beta version 0.3 of AirTraffic Control, a VST effect plug-in for Windows that lets you work with your sounds on a map. You see a simple plan view of the room you are in with your speakers or headphones. Input and output channels are objects on the map. Outputs are like ears: the nearer the inputs come, the easier it is to hear them.
- Inputs and outputs are symbols on a map of your listening area.
- Up to 16 input channels and 8 output channels are available.
- An output channel is like an ear, and displays an outer circle for its limit of hearing.
- Audio parameters are adjusted by moving inputs and outputs on the map, and by dragging on the circles to change their size.
AirTraffic Control lets you place what you want to hear where you want to hear it. A wave of the mouse can be dramatic as a sound sweeps across your listening space.
The beta version of AirTraffic Control is available for free. It is expected to cost $50 when version 1.0 is released later this year.
