Puremagnetik has released Parsec, which they describe as a spatial manipulation device designed to make sounds scatter throughout the stereo field in 3 dimensions. Using minute phase offsets and filtering, Parsec takes sounds and distributes them throughout the X, Y and Z coordinates of spatial perception. Puremagnetik says that you can accurately adjust their location or use modulators to wildly throw them around the room!
They also say that Parsec is capable of much more. A spokesperson told us, "Use it as an effect with studio speakers or in binaural mode for precise trajectory encoding with headphones. Experimental sound designers, foley mixers and game composers can use binaural mode to craft their content for deployment in head-spinning 3D space."
• OSX 10.8 or Windows 10 x64
• Audio Units or VST compatible audio host
Pricing and Availability:
Parsec is currently offered as part of Puremagnetik's Spark subscription for $9 per month. After one month it will become back-cataloged for a la carte purchase at $20 USD.
