2nd and 3rd Order WigWare

I’ve currently got up to 4th order versions of my panners and decoders.  Attached to this post is a link to the 2nd and 3rd order Panners (encoders).  There are two versions of each order:

  • A 2D 2nd order version that outputs 5 channels of 2nd order Ambisonic goodness (W,X,Y,U & V)
  • A 3D version that outputs 9 channels (W,X,Y,Z,R,S,T,U & V)
  • A 2D 3rd order version that outputs 7 channels (W,X,Y,U,V,P & Q)
  • A 3D 3rd order version that outputs 16 channels (W,X,Y,Z,R,S,T,U,V,K,L,M,N,O,P & Q)
These panners use the Furse Malham weightings.  More info can be found here.

If NFC (near field compensation) is set to OFF then as the source is moved into the middle, the directional compenents are turned down (centre sources comes out of every speaker equally when decoded). If NFC is set to a distance, then the
distance parameter then controls the distance filtering which applies LF boost (proximity effect) as the source moves closer to the middle.
