Nuspace Audio Intros Zephyr Ambisonics Binaural/Surround Reverb

Nuspace Audio has introduced Zephyr, a 3D audio binaural/surround reverb plugin, based in higher-order Ambisonics (HOA), a speaker-independent format for representing 3D sound-fields suited for spatial audio systems.

Nuspace describes Zephyr as a ‘complete spatial audio package for crafting 3D soundscapes’.
Features:

  • 1st / 2nd / 3rd order HOA encoder: 8 sources, Mercator projection panner

  • HOA rotator: Yaw, pitch, invert controls
  • HOA decoder: Integrated binaural HRTF, stereo, quadraphonics, 5.1, hexagon/octagon speakers
  • Early reflection processor: Delay, gain, low/high cut, width, direction, depth controls
  • Early chorus processor: 1-7 multi-stages
  • Sound-field visualizer: Real-time, brightness controls

  1. No commemts? Sounds pretty decent. I’m interested in knowing more about binaural panning and ambisonic format. Anyone mixing using similar technique? This looks pretty reasonable.
