360pan suite is a plug-in suite for Windows and macOS designed to deliver ambisonics mixes for immersive audio: audio from all directions, intended for headphone reproduction, that stays where it is even when you turn your head.
You can do all your panning, distancing and even mixing from within the video window of your DAW (Reaper or Pro Tools HD). There is no need to have any plug-in interfaces open while working.
There are a lot of names for the type video that the 360pan suite can deliver spatial audio for:
These type videos require a soundtrack that can turn when the head of the viewer with VR goggles on, or his phone, is turned.
360pan enables you to pan mono, stereo or four channel input files into ambisonics, using pucks that move on top of the video window
(Pro Tools HD & Reaper 5).
Gain, distance and reverb width, along with the puck itself will show up in the video window when a panner is inserted and ‘show puck’ and ‘show overlay’ are switched on. The three sliders appear when you click the three slider icon that shows when you hover the mouse over a puck in the video window.
Look around and listen to your immersive mix while you are making it, instant preview.
360monitor scoops video frames out of the video window and sends them into a browser style drag-n-pan screen while decoding the ambisonics mix to binaural for headphones, (or 5.0) for speaker playback, so you can look around and listen to your immersive mix while you are making it.
360reverb is the first truly omnidirectional convolution reverb. A single instance can can provide pan-following reverb with individually adjustable reverb width for an unlimited amount of sound sources. The dry/wet balance and the spread controls only function on the main (traditional plug-in) input of the reverb. 360reverb accepts ambisonics input and delivers ambisonics output.
360radar shows you when there is audio in your ambisonics mix or recording, but more importantly it shows where it is, all right in the video window.
The 360turner together with 360radar allows you to rotate or tilt an ambisonics recording so that misalignment and calibration errors of the microphone can be easily corrected.
All plug-ins are available in first, second and third order variants (4, 9 or 16 channels).
