Wave Arts Panorama 5 AAX
Panorama is a specialized tool for creating stunningly realistic 3-D audio scenes using regular stereo sound. The DSP technology in Panorama reproduces psychoacoustic sound localization and distance cues, allowing you to pan sounds in three dimensions: not just left and right, but up, down, front, back, near, and far. Panorama combines HRTF-based audio panning with acoustic environment modeling, including wall reflections, reverberation, distance modeling, and the Doppler pitch effect. Panorama sounds amazing when heard on headphones. Anyone producing podcasts or music specifically intended for mobile devices should definitely check out Panorama. Panorama also includes a crosstalk canceller to format the output for playback over conventional stereo loudspeakers. In this mode, Panorama can make sounds appear to come from outside the normal stereo soundstage.

A host program that supports the AU, MAS, VST, or RTAS plug-in architecture.
Audio Units and VST – 32 and 64-bit Intel Mac.
MAS and RTAS – 32-bit Universal Binary (Intel and PowerPC).
A host program that supports the DirectX, VST, or RTAS plug-in architecture.
Wave Arts plug-ins are not standalone applications, instead they “plug-in” to a host audio editor application. You must run an audio editor or workstation application such as Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar, Ableton Live, Sound Forge, Audition, Samplitude, Nuendo, WaveLab, Digital Performer, Studio One, etc. (there are a lot of choices). Wave Arts plug-ins support many plug-in formats, on Mac OS we support VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, AS, and MAS formats and on Windows we support VST, DX, AAX, RTAS, and AS formats.
The entire plug-in lineup now works in Avid’s AAX format! All plug-ins now support AAX Native operation while TrackPlug, MultiDynamics and FinalPlug also run on HDX DSP cards
