Fire The Pan

The panner is certainly one of the most straightforward and immediate effects in the wide range of audio processing tools, capable of acting subtly or drastically when required. Despite its limited number of controls, it has a preponderant effect on the balance of the channels (left and right), indirectly modifying not only the spatiality, but also the spectrum of monophonic content, i.e. the main and immediate sound information perceived by the user, at the centre of our listening.

With advances in audio, numerous tools are now available on the market that explore the concept of panning, starting with traditional 2D panning, and extending the balancing concept to spatialisation, allowing the perception of sound source positioning in the surround field to be altered to produce increasingly realistic 3D sound effects extending this paradigm to the extent of ‘3D Audio panning’ (object-based audio, and Ambisonics audio).

Fire The Pan brings together five different panning categories all-in-one, for more than 60 emulations. Let yourself be tempted by this new FIRE entry to transform the way you think about your stereo image, so that you’ll definitely want in your tool set.

Well, all this and more can be found in Fire The Pan.

After a careful design phase, Acustica sampled and recreated an impressive number of both analog and digital (2D and 3D) panner emulations with the aim of creating one of the best and most comprehensive Panner plug-ins currently on the market, effortlessly giving you more depth and definition in the stereo field.
