  • Proximity - Psychoacoustically Position sounds

    Saw this tonight on Synthtopia. This plug-in seems useful for ambient music for creating varying apparent distances for sounds.

    From their website:

    Proximity is a collaborative effort by Tokyo Dawn Labs and Vladg Sound.
    The plug-in is an easy to use distance “pan-pot” based on several psycho-acoustic models. The idea is to give mixing engineer a reliable tool which allows him to manipulate the “depth” of several sound source in a straight forward and convincing manner.
    Several models can be combined:
    • Distance signal delay by speed of sound
    • Distance gain loss
    • Absorption of high-frequencies in air
    • Stereo width manipulation
    • Proximity effect of virtual microphone
    • Distance based early reflections

    All models can be turned on and off to taste. Distance modulation options extend the creative possibilities even further. Units can be switched from metric (meters) to imperial (inches).
    Proximity was our candidate for the KVR Developer Challenge 2012 and reached 2nd place in the overall category and 1st place in the mac category! Sincere thanks to all voters and contestants!
    Gonna give it a try.

      Thanks for the timely reminder. This could be just what I need in an upcoming project :thumbsup:
