  • Any DAW that supports VST3 or AU formats.

Choose the angle and distance: Introducing the Polar Pad

Transpanner 2 introduces a polar pad interface with a design of concentric circles that animate as you drag the virtual thumb. Moving the thumb around the pad’s center enables precise control over sound direction, allowing you to select any angle from 0 to 360 degrees. Moving the thumb inward sends sounds into the distance, while dragging it outward brings them closer.

This intuitive and tactile method of 3D audio manipulation enhances user interaction in stereo mixing.

Psychoacoustic Wizardry: Behind the 3D Sound Illusion.

When you adjust the controls in Transpanner 2, it tailors these sound wave properties in such a way that your brain is tricked into perceiving the sound as coming from different directions, including from behind you. This creates a 3D audio effect, enveloping you in a more lifelike and immersive sound environment, all from a stereo setup.

Enhancements and Improvements:

  • Enhanced Audio Engine: Now delivers cleaner, click-free sound even during rapid adjustments.
  • Variable Buffer Size DAW Fixes: Resolved issues for DAWs utilizing variable buffers to minimize delay, removing the need for ‘use fixed buffers’.
  • License-Free Access: Transpanner 2 is now available without a license key, hassle-free for all users.
  • True to our commitment to the audio community, Transpanner 2 will remain donationware. Users are encouraged to support further development with contributions that reflect the value they find in the tool.”
