VBAP package for Max
This GitHub project is a package for Cycling74's Max, versions 6.1 or higher. It provides newly compiled, 64-bit versions of Ville Pullki's objects for vector-based amplitude panning that were originally developed in 1998.
Vector-based amplitude panning is a technique for spatializing sound across multiple loudspeakers. It is flexible enough to define an arbitrary number of speakers in 2D or 3D space. After speaker positions are defined, the user can move a single sound source through the configuration by adjusting its apparent azimuth and elevation.
