Wave Arts releases Panorama

Wave Arts

Wave Arts has released Panorama, a specialized tool for creating "stunningly realistic" 3-D audio scenes using conventional stereo sound. The DSP technology in Panorama reproduces psychoacoustic sound localization and distance cues, allowing you to pan sounds in three dimensions: not just left and right, but up, down, front, back, near, and far. Panorama combines 3-D audio panning with acoustic environment modeling, including wall reflections, reverberation, distance modeling, and the Doppler pitch effect.

While primarily intended for headphone listening, Panorama also includes a crosstalk canceller for playback over conventional stereo loudspeakers.

Features:

  • Position and move sound in three dimensions.
  • Uses Head-Related Transfer Functions (HRTF) to reproduce binaural sound localization cues.
  • Integrated reverberation and distance cues.
  • Extensive control over dimensions and surface material of all six surfaces of the room.
  • Doppler pitch effect.
  • Full automation support for creating moving sounds.
  • Crosstalk canceller for loudspeaker playback.

Applications:

  • Create realistic sound scenes.
  • Make special 3-D and moving sound effects in conventional stereo productions.
  • Unique mixing tool - position musical instruments in a virtual space.
  • Essential tool for headphone audio production.

Panorama is available for all native Mac OS X and Windows formats (VST, AU, MAS, DX and RTAS) and costs $249.95. Audio examples and 30-day demo versions are available at the Wave Arts website.
