Audio Ease has released the 360pan suite, tools for immersive audio. 360pan is designed to solve the problem of attaching sounds to moving objects in 360-videos. To pan sounds accurately onto objects a user automates multiple source 'pucks' by dragging these around in the Pro Tools video window itself. All this can be done with two Pro Tools AAX or VST plug-ins, no syncing or background apps required.
360monitor shows the user an interactively turning preview of the 360 video by grabbing videoframes right from the Pro Tools video window, so it is always sync with playback. The audio turns along with it by using the exact YouTube algorithm to decode ambisonics to binaural audio for headphones. Interactive immersive video and audio right from within Pro Tools without no TC syncing or background apps required.
Originally intended for the Pro Tools community that wants to do audio post production for YouTube, this release is AAX Mac only. VST support will follow soon. Also in the making is a set of converters that convert between the different ambisonics channel ordering conventions, and a panner for ambisonics input sounds.
