33 - Panners

A rich collection of stereo and multi-channel panning tricks. Look in here to move your audio source through space if not time.

#3310 Amplitude Panner

Pans your input according to its amplitude. For weak signals increase depth, and decrease it for strong signals. attack and decay select how quickly the pan will follow the amplitude envelope of the signal. Use the ‘panning’ menu to select panning trajectory. Quad in, quad out.

#3322 Octave Panner

Divides signal into octaves and pans each octave in turn. Lower values of ‘XOvr’ overlap the octave pans. ‘Dir’ controls whether high bands progress to low bands or vice versa. Rate controls how long it takes to cycle through all the bands. Decrease the input gain to avoid distortion, then use output gain to compensate. Mono in, quad out.

#3326 QuadCircleMod

Does a circular pan with a QUAD speaker setup. The base speed of the pan is controlled by Base Rate. The base rate is modulated by another LFO. Mod Depth controls how much it changes and Mod Rate controls how often it changes. As the pan speeds up, a HP filter raises its cutoff according to FilterMod and its Q according to Res Mod. Summed in, quad out.
