SSA Plugins creates tools for sound engineers and artists working with spatial sound. We specialize in Ambisonic plugins that make creating as easy as possible.
Detailed description
aXPlugins :
The aX Ambisonics Suite provides you with the tools for a complete signal chain that works with spatial and immersive audio, from encoding to decoding and many steps in between.
The aX Suite includes Ambisonics panning and monitoring plugins to help you immerse yourself in the world of spatial sound.
It also includes effects for use directly on Ambisonics signals: delay, EQ, compression, noise gate and de-esser.
What is Ambisonics ?
Ambisonics is a spatial audio format that has been around since the 1970s. Since then, its popularity has risen and fallen several times, but with the advent of virtual reality (VR), it has been resurrected again. In fact, Ambisonics is now being used by some of the biggest video platforms on the web: YouTube and Facebook!
How does ambisonics work ?
Ambisonics works in three stages: encoding, processing and decoding. The encoding step takes your mono or stereo track and converts (using a plugin like aXPanner) it into B-format, a multi-channel format in which the gain and polarity ratio between channels is determined by the position of the source (azimuth and elevation). B-format is independent of the playback stage and cannot be listened to directly. First order ambisonics (FOA) has 4 channels: W (omnidirectional), X, Y and Z (on Cartesian axes).
During the processing stage, you manipulate sound sources individually or as a group. This manipulation can include dynamic range compression, equalization, adding effects such as delay, etc. You can also rotate everything at the same time. Of course, format B signals must be handled with care so as not to damage the spatial information. aX plugins were designed specifically with this in mind.
