Brightness Panner is a panner which is controlled by the brightness/pitch of the sound, capable of working in all formats (stereo, 5.1, 7,.1.2, ambisonics, binaural, etc.). Instead of static panning, or boring auto pan movements, Brightness Panner reacts to the sound, adding live to mixes with much more organic movements. With 3 operation mode, Brightness can react to either MIDI (note on events), pitch (pitch detector) or brightness (brightness analyzer), which is used to control the movement of the sound. Brightness Panner was reviewed by Sound on Sound magazine in their October 2021 issue.
Brightness Panner core innovation is based on simplicity - simple to use, large audience, organic results, and helping bringing live to mixes. 1. Spatial Sound Spatial audio is the new trend in music, with new formats like Dolby Atmos for Music and others. Brightness Panner allows people to create amazing results with music and spatial audio. And even those that still work in stereo, can take advantage of Brightness Panner to bring life to their mixes 2. Simplicity By placing Brightness Panner on a DAW, after a virtual instrument, our plugin is able to use the original MIDI information that was used on the virtual instrument, to pan its sound around. No complex setups, no external routing, no MIDI loopback drivers. Using regular plugins in regular DAWs. 3. Creativity Artists think about panning as a static tool - some sounds go here, some other sounds go over there, and that's it! And the only alternative is using boring auto pans, with boring ping pong movements. Since Brightness Panner uses the input sound or input MIDI to control its movement, it offers a much more organic results, reacting to the input sound and bringing life to mixes. 4. Simply Works Something that simply works, and that is why we have world class users such as Jean Michel Jarre, among many others.
