Immensely Powerful Room Acoustics Simulation and Localisation
NOTE: This product requires an iLok (not included) for authorization. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.
The Flux:: Spat room acoustics simulation and localization solution gives you much more than a typical reverb plug-in for surround sound use. Spat is based on over a decade of research by IRCAM (Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics and Music) in Paris, France, to bring you vivid and lifelike reverb and spatialization effects. Spat gives you the power to control both spatialisation (source localisation) and room acoustics simulation. Said another way, you can define where your source signal arrives from in a 3D space, then gives you control over the reverb characteristics for that space. You can even combine up to three reverb spaces in parallel to accurately model the effects of coupled room acoustics. Consider the Flux:: Spat as a must-have tool for post-production and sound design work.Flux:: Spat at a Glance:
- Advanced spatial technology
- Incredible spatial control
- Made for multi-channel audio
Flux's Spat gives you intuitive control over a powerful set of parameters to create an incredibly realistic soundfield. Up to eight input channels are routed to one of many "sources" that you can place in your virtual space. You then have control over several acoustic and perceptual parameters, including the spatialisation of the source (its place in the 3D sound field). Sources are then routed to the reverb module, which gives you precise control over the finest details of your virtual space. Basically, Spat not only allows gives you a hyper-realistic reverb effect, it allows you to control the exact point in a 3D space that your source sounds emanate from, and gives you control over how the source signal is perceived in relation to the reverberation it creates.Incredible Spatial Control:
If your creativity in post-production or sound design is hampered by the simple room size, reverb time, and density controls that most reverbs feature, you're in for a pleasant surprise with Spat. Place your source sounds anywhere within a virtual 3D space, then determine the distance, azimuth, yaw, elevation, pitch, and aperture of where the source is being perceived from. The level of control that you have lets you create stunningly accurate acoustic spaces and effects - and because all the parameters can be automated, creating a picture-perfect marriage of audio and video in post-production is easier and more lifelike than ever before.Made for Multi-channel Audio:
Spat supports up to eight inputs and eight outputs, with configurations from everything from 2.0 to 7.1 and 8.0 surround projects. While Spat sounds amazing even in stereo 2.0 projects, the years of research into spatialisation and localisation truly come to life when used to create stunning 3D soundfields that you can place your sound sources in with unprecedented detail.Flux:: Spat Features:
- Utilizes years of research in spatial technology to bring you unprecedented control over your reverberant space, and how your sound sources are perceived within that space
- Supports automation for virtually every parameter for powerful sound design and post-production possibilities
- Supports up to eight outputs make Spat the perfect tool for anything from 2.0 stereo mixes to 7.1 and 8.0 surround projects.
- 64-bit internal floating point processing for immaculate sound quality
- RTAS, VST, AU plug-in formats
