Sound Particles has released their Energy Panner plug-in which they say offers a different approach to panning.
They tell us that it uses the intensity of a sound to control its movement automatically, providing any sound professional with a tool that combines dynamics with spatial definition, to modify and enhance mix elements, sound effects and many more. They company says that, from traditional stereo to Ambisonics, from 5.1 to binaural, this plugin enables artists to add automatic movement to their content without any effort or manual automation.
Nuno Fonseca, founder and CEO of Sound Particles, told us, "Most people associate Sound Particles software with audio post production, but we've wanted to create music tools for some time now. Space is still one dimension that is not fully explored by musicians, and we hope that Energy Panner can help everyone (both music and audio post professionals) to make things more interesting in this field. And this is only the first step on a very interesting roadmap that we have set in this area."
