Audio Pan Surround Panner

Send the input sound to different outputs (speakers) according to the pan position.

Example with 2 inputs and 4 speakers:

Settings

in

Audio input flow(s).

out

Audio output flow(s).

X

Source Pan positions on the horizontal axis.

Y

Source Pan positions on the vertical axis.

randomize

Randomizes values or positions.

array X pos

Source Pan positions on the horizontal axis as an array.

array Y pos

Source Pan positions on the vertical axis as an array.

caption

Displayed caption of the object. Click to enter a new name.

num of inputs

Number of audio inputs, choose between 1(mono) to 16.

num of speakers

Number of audio outputs, up to 64.

area

Area of speakers used for the volume coefficients.

Used only if calc mode = legacy area mode.

volume curve

Curve used for the calculation of the volume coefficient.

  • logarithm
  • exponential
  • linear

calc mode

Determines how volume coefficients are calculated.

  • constant energy: ensure that the output has a constant power whatever the position of the sources.
  • legacy area mode: use the HH3 legacy mode with area factors.

smooth speed

Determines if the volume changes smoothly (SLOW), or abruptly (FAST) when the panner is modified. Fast value can produce audio glitches.

  • fast
  • medium
  • medium slow
  • slow
  • very slow

speakers locked

Once locked, useful to avoid any change on speakers position.

coeffs

Array which contains volume coefficients for each source and speaker in the following order:

  • [coeff so1 sp1, coeff so1 sp2, coeff so1 sp3,...coeff so2 sp1, coeff so2 sp2,....coeff soN spM]

activate symmetry

Turn Symmetry mode ON or OFF.

symmetry

Symmetry mode:

  • circle: pan positions keep always the same angle.
  • translation: pan positions keep always the same distances between each other.

speakers X

Speakers positions on the horizontal axis.

speakers Y

Speakers positions on the vertical axis.

array speakers X pos

Speakers positions on the horizontal axis as an array.

array speakers Y pos

Speakers positions on the vertical axis as an array.

speakers gain coeff

Gain coefficients applied to the speakers in array mode. For gain=0, speakers are disabled.

saved in preset

Determines if parameters of this object are saved in the preset-panel.

fade preset

Parameters of the this object can cross faded when you recall a preset in the grid.

Optional setting, does not appear on all objects.

can be randomized

When ON, this object will be randomized when using the randomize command of its patch.

can be reset

When ON, this object will be reseted to its default value when using the reset command of its patch.
